When taking care of dog clothes, you need to follow many of the same rules for laundry as you do with your clothes.
Read the label. Most dog sweaters and clothes can be machine or hand-washed.
Use a mesh bag. To wash small items, place in a mesh laundry bag before washing. This will prevent tangles and loss of small pieces.
Pretreat stains. If the clothes have mud or food stains, pretreat with a stain remover for best results.
Use a hypoallergenic detergent. Harsh detergents with perfumes and dyes can cause skin problems for animals.
Be sure that clothing and collars are completely dry before allowing the dogs to wear them again to prevent skin irritation.
