Contrary to the opinion of most people, shoes need a dog in the autumn and slushy weather it will protect the foot of York from the mud, and in winter will keep them warm and protect paws from chemicals and reagents, which is sprinkled with icy sidewalks. In addition, shoes allow you to keep clean and dry, cut or damaged paw.
To sew shoes for dogs are very easy – to do this you need a dense waterproof cloth, or leather, which will not slip on different surfaces. Cut four soles of thick rubberized fabric, correlating the size of the soles with the size of the dog paws. Then from a thin waterproof fabric take four "stockings", stitching in the pipe a rectangle of fabric.
The bottom edge of the "pipe" pristrochite to the sole of the Shoe. Front shoes should be below the rear – rear length of the boot should be such that it overlaps the hock of the hind paw. As buckles for shoes you can use simple Velcro straps. The top edge of the boot, you can pull the cord, to not enter into water.
Such boots can be made for the evening, measuring the diameter of the legs of the dog, as well as the height from the ground to the wrist joint. If you are not sure that they are able to cut out circles of fabric at once, make pattern-the blank, drawing a smooth circle, the radius of which is equal to the radius of the legs.
In addition to shoes, the dog needed a suit made of waterproof fabric with insulation. Measure the length of the back of a dog, wearing a collar on her and measuring the distance from collar to base of tail. The resulting figure will be divided by eight. Draw on a sheet of tracing paper grid. Side length of the square grid is equal to the number you got by dividing the length of the back eight.
On the net transfer the pattern of the jumpsuit. Remember that jumpsuit consists of two identical parts – left and right. Also, the jumpsuit has one unpaired detail – wedge which is sewn between the front paws wide end. Cut parts of the fabric by adding seam and then connect them durable double stitching.
Adjust the length of the legs according to the length of the legs of the dog, the lower edge of the leg fold, stitch and insert all four leg elastic. Connect of the suit split zipper or Velcro. To protect the dog from rain, you can sew jumpsuit hood.
A lightweight version of the clothing for dogs is a knitted vest that can be worn in cool and dry weather. As in the previous case, measure the length of the back, divide it into eight and transfer the pattern to the grid square of which is equal to the obtained number. Then measure around the dog's chest and girth of her waist.
Correlate the measurements with the pattern. Start knitting elastic fabric, equal in width to the waist of the dog. Add on loop until, while their number will not be equal to the circumference of the chest. Tie the cutout for the legs and provarite back, and then neck.
Provarite loop chest, removing them on the same needle. The product have to sew with a needle and thread on her stomach, and then separately to sew a wedge between its front paws. This vest can be made from ordinary tissue.
