trenchcoats and sweaters for dogs? A thought that may make you
raise your eyebrows!
today's designer fashion selling out? Despite what you might
think, high-class designer labels also cater for your pets nowadays
as does British luxury label Burberry who has just released
their own collection of Burberry clothing for dogs. Most notable
features are the famous Burberry trenchcoat for dogs as well
as the Check sweater and Burberry dog leash.
Where did this trend start? The origins of dog clothing most
probably came from England due to its damp and cold climate,
it was very easy for smaller dogs to catch colds when they were
taken out. So for a while it was not uncommon to find small
dogs dressed in cover-up "raincoats" and sausaged
in small waterproof capes.
But the idea of actually dressing your dog and providing them
with a wardrobe only came up recently. Sparked by such celebrities
as Paris Hilton and her pet chihuahua Tinkerbell as well as
the successful Hollywood movie 'Legally Blonde', dressing your
dog up has become the ultimate in fashion and accesorizing.

Burberry trench coat for dogs, shoes, t-shirts, hats and more

sizes'. Bloomingdale's, Neiman-Marcus, Gucci, Louis Vuitton,
all the biggest names in fashion have pawed their way into the
very lucrative pet-accessories market, an industry that gathered
an estimated $8 billion during 2004.
Though Burberry aren't the only designer label to release their
own dog clothing collection, Burberry for dogs is definitely
the collection with the most fashion credibility if you consider

to bad weather, Thomas Burberry's initial success was for outdoor
wear, trenchcoats and sweaters. Read more about Thomas Burberry.
