Snakeskin Fashions for Pets

Category : Uncategorized

Traditionally, a dog’s main purpose is to be man’s best friend, an extension of the family, and to be a darling to the family. Initially, clothing for dogs was enforced in military regions in order to save the dogs from potential assaults and from being war casualties. However, dog clothing has changed with time.

Now, you can see different styles and types of clothing on dogs from snakeskin fabric collars to entire snakeskin fabric outfits. Oprah Winfrey treats her dogs like royalty and she actually provides an air conditioned dog house furnished with beds and other amenities for her pets.

Although some people do not agreeing with dressing pets, there are actually very compelling arguments for doing so.

In Favor of Dog Clothing

1. A dog’s clothing can be its direct line of attack. Clothing can protect your dog from cuts, scratches, scrapes, bruises, and possibly terrible weather conditions.
2. Dog clothing is trendy and fashionable. Lately, there have been many cats and dogs dressed in snakeskin fabric outfits. People are closely connected to their pets and sometimes equate how well an owner pampers his dog to the owner’s financial status.

3. Shoes can protect an animal’s paws. Sometimes the terrain can be rough, icy, hot, or covered with broken glass. In these situations, the animal’s paws will be safe.

4. Clothing may help repel insects, spider bites, and possibly ticks.
It only takes one sighting of Perez Hilton’s dog “Teddy” to wear a snakeskin fabric collar to start a new trend in the canine world. Right now, reptile fashions for pets are as big as reptile fashions for humans, an almost every stylish Beverly Hills dog has at least one item in their wardrobe.
If you’re still not ready to dress your dog up, a snakeskin collar or snakeskin pet carrier may be the best option for you. Like people, some dogs just aren’t quite bold enough to pull off reptile fashions, but they can incorporate it into their look with a simple collar or by riding in style on your arm.

Animal rights activist remove snakeskin commercial

In this Heineken Light commercial, snakeskin fashion was thrust into the forefront, becoming the focus of the advertisement and the wrath of animal activists that put enough pressure on Heineken that the beer company was forced to take the commercial off of the air. Despite the criticism that Heineken came under for featuring a snake fight and snakeskin coat in their commercial, snakeskin fashions and accessories are popular with celebrities, rock stars, and everyday people who are looking to make big statements with their fashion choices.

Snakeskin fashion has been a trend since the 1800’s when hatbands, belts, and boots were made from the hides of snakes. The bright colors and unique designs on the more exotic snakes made them a “must have” for fashionistas; however, animal rights groups and the extinction that looms in the future for many types of these reptiles has made it much harder for people to buy clothing made from snakes.  As a result, many popular snakeskin styles are now made from faux snakeskin fabric and designs.

With the trend of snakeskin designs making a comeback, faux designs are able to be made in many more colors than what was available strictly through dyes added to the real skins, which did not always take to the skins or last for extended periods of time.

In the Heineken Light commercial, the man’s snakeskin jacket is out of place in various social occasions, like formal meetings; however, when he attends an offshore charity snake-fighting event, it makes the “right occasion even righter,” making an analogy between Heineken Light and a snakeskin jacket.  The same can be said of wearing the right snakeskin pieces to the right events, it is just all about where you wear it and how you pull off the look, making the right occasion, like going to nightclubs, “even righter.”
