There are lots of dog clothing accessories you can stock in addition to the clothing itself. Hats, water and food dishes, leashes, and toys are just a few ideas. Dog clothing accessories are very popular lately, thanks to movies in which dogs play a major role, such as Legally Blonde. In that movie, the main character has custom-made clothing for her dog, as well as a custom bed, carrier, and water dish.

Movies can strongly influence the tastes of the consumer. Pink dog sweaters also become popular because of Legally Blonde. By staying on top of the latest trends, you can cash in on the hip factor.

How To Display Dog Clothing Accessories

When Abby first began selling dog apparel clothing, I helped her design the display for the few sets of sweaters, hats, and toys she stocked. We arranged them in such a manner that matching sets were easy to pick out, and customers who purchased one item of a matched set often ended up buying the other piece as well. We purchased a ceramic dog and used it as our window model, letting us showcase seasonal items and matched sets.

The window display is very important for generating walk-in business. Seasonal displays are helpful in reminding the customer of important holidays: Valentine's Day, Easter, Fourth of July, and Christmas. Plan out window displays in advance and take photos of past displays that were successful; use successful displays again to showcase current trends.
