    I don’t dress my dog. She’s a dog not a toy or a baby. Nature gave her the only clothes she needs: it’s called fur.

    Raincoat as Scrip is small and hates the rain.

    Important is adjustable size and has the important willy space beneath. Many coats cover it so he won’t be a able to pee on the walk.

    Yes. He has a T-shirt, used if chilly and windy.

    Especially now that he is older keeping him warm in winter is important.

    So fleece with waterproof top.

    Buddy only has a coat and yes a jumper for cold walks as he feels the cold. I see dog as a dog and not as a dolly.

    I have a hairless dog
    He has
    3 jumpers (one on, one in wash, one ready to go)
    2 coats, one waterproof and wind proof, one wind proof
    A few ex baby t-shirts, for really sunny days

    No other apparel, as he is a dog, not a human
    he needs no pj's as he sleeps with me and if he gets cold creeps under the duvet (at the moment hogging the fan is his fave past time)

    Seeing as a buy his stuff at B&M, in the sales,
    or
    convert from charity shop baby stuff, then I doubt you could offer a cheaper price point

    Not sure my dogs have a preference.

    Fleece - or wool - whichever's practical.

    I have a colour scheme for collars, leads and harnesses - not so much for clothing.

    Bright.

    Clothes that fit - but that could be me being rubbish at measuring properly.

    I go for practicality, not fashion, so I don't have a favourite brand.

    To keep them warm and/or dry.

    No.

    I have 2 different "breeds" (or three if you classify a lurcher as a cross - which they are), so that depends on whether I'm talking about my lurcher, or my Chihuaua.

    Lurcher - Not that I know of.
    Chi - clothes small enough to fit her.

    Again though, that's probably on me and not on the manufacturers and sellers of dog clothing.

    Not sure. I normally head to Amazon and/or eBay (usually in that order with Google a poor 3rd), so perhaps an online store with one of those to increase visibility, whilst offering products unique to you.

    Two.

    N/A

    The only reason I "dress" my dogs is because they have a tendency to feel the cold and to keep them dry. I'm not interested in themed/costume clothing or accessories and whilst I was given a matching collar (for my lurcher) and bracelet as a Christmas present, matching dog/owner accessories or collections isn't really my sort of thing.

    As far as I know, the clothing I've bought for my dogs are unbranded - except for my lurcher's 2-in-1 cost, which I think is Tri-peaks. How would I rate it? Well, it does the job - when she wears it. It's lasted for about 3 years, with no signs of wear or tear yet, so maybe 7 out of 10.

    My dogs have a friendly, helpful owner. Shame about your comment. Not very helpful at all. Some dogs suffer alopecia, some like in cold countries, some like to have highly visible dogs, some like to have service dogs etc. There are many reasons to both dress your dog and act like a kind human being.

    Then why respond at all to a survey about dog clothing? Please get a hobby involving something you do like as filling surveys just to be deliberately unhelpful sounds like a very sad time
