To those of you who have made dog clothes: what is the best closing device?
Button? Velcro? Ties? Zipper? No closure, slip over the ol' doggie head?

I have a very tolerant, 15 lb chi mix, who needs a sweater when we walk late on chilly nights. If she wanted out of the sweater, I would be right there to help her out of it. I wouldn't leave the sweater on her unattended. Just for late night walking. Also, the sweater has to only come down the body part way, to allow for pee-clearance. She has long legs and strong shoulders, and a somewhat deep chest. Its just really hard to convince her to come out with me, walk around and pee on things if shes shivering! She has very short, fine fur.

(Self-conscious disclaimer: Im not one for dressing dogs up, but what kind of dog mom would I be if I didnt try to keep her comfy?)

My guys have a few "outfits".  Some are pull over, but most are velcro and close under the tummy.  I find the velcro is easier and faster to get them dressed.

Don't forget about snaps. I love snaps on my doggie apparel.  They are really easy to put on clothing too!

Id say that pull over ones & velcro are the best & quickest.  No zippers though, you might accidnetly zip up some skin or fur in the zipper!  All of my pets clothes are pullover ones, except for the winter coats & rain coats, they are velcro.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.
