Every dog clothing manufacture has their own sizing chart, study it carefully for most charts won’t suit all dog’s so most important thing to remember is chest, as long as chest size is right then it should be ok. If you’re buying online then you should provide online store with his measurements, just to ensure you’ll get right size. Some online stores will make garment to your dogs measurements, this is a great feature for anyone but greater if you own a Dachshund or Crested or any hard to fit dog.
If you’re buying for a puppy from an online store then it’s very important to let store know, what kind of puppy, how old and how much does he weigh. This is important so seller can calculate what your dog’s size will be by time you get your package.
Dressing your dog in different clothes for different occasions is lots of fun… after all, your pet is part of your family too. Just using common sense in choosing what size for him as we, wouldn’t wear anything uncomfortable. Like babies they can’t tell us what’s too tight or loose so it’s our responsibility to choose right size for them.

Universal Principles for Successful Dog TrainingWritten by Moses Chia
Continued from page 1
Attention Factor (Endurance Approach) Dogs love attention and are hugely motivated by it. Unlike man, dogs do not know how to differentiate between positive and negative attention. They see things in a simple way. If a certain action gets reaction and attention, you’ll bet they repeat it over and over again. (Cause and Effect) Unfortunately, for most dog owners, we more often than not give our dogs negative attention. For example, "Do you let him out of his crate when he groans?" or "Do you give chase when he runs off with your socks?" These are negative attentions given to dog and is certainly motivating his bad behavior. Fortunately, opposite is true if you pay enough attention to your dog when he behaves himself. When dog understands that he’ll get attention only when he’s behaving, he’ll learn that only good behavior attract attention and he’ll repeat his good behavior always. Focus your attention on your dog only when he is behaving; praise him or give him a treat, let him know that he’s getting attention. If this technique is used correctly, he’ll be a well-behaved dog for a long time to come. Nevertheless, this approach is probably not for short temper and requires you to go through an endurance ordeal. Imagine your dog chewing up your sock in your presence. “Endure Dude!” Training Mood You need to be in correct frame of mind before you train your dog. Never train your dog when you are under influence of alcohol or drug. Also try not to train him if you’ve a bad day or not in best of your mood. If you’ve just argued with your sweetie or got a telling off from your boss earlier on. You would most probably take out your frustration on him and threaten your relationship with him in future. Do remember to apply these dog training principles constantly & you'll be half-way through to successful dog training.
