It may be for practical reasons or you may just want to celebrate your dog’s uniqueness, or you may think it’s too silly to dress up your pet. We’ve put together our top 10 reasons to dress up your dog.
#10 Clothes Can Show Off Your Pet’s Personality
People use clothes to show off their personality, why shouldn’t your pet? Whether he's tough, flirtatious, smart or sassy, have him dress the part.
#9 It’s show time
To look your best at a dog show, sometimes a few well-placed accessories really help bring out your dog’s winning personality. A sassy bow or a flashy collar can give your dog an edge on the stiff dog show competition.
#8 It’s cold out there
When the snow is coming down, it’s time to put a coat, sweater and boots. Sometimes our dog’s natural fur coat isn’t enough to protect them from biting wind and blustering snow. And because sidewalk salt can become lodged in between your dog’s paw pads, boots are a smart way to keep them healthy.
#7 It’s hot out there
Dogs with light coats, short coats or with little fur at all are at risk of sun burn. And it’s just as dangerous and painful for them as it is for us. Cover them up with a T-shirt or a sun protection suit that ensures the sun’s harmful rays don’t cause any damage. You can even buy cooling vests that will help them chill out during the dog days of summer.
#6 What Pet Wouldn’t Want To Be the Center of Attention?
Is there anything pets love more than being the center of attention? No? We didn’t think so. Dress your pet up and he’s sure to receive tons of attention from anyone he comes across.
#5 Add a Little Variety to the Routine
The majority of days in a pet’s life are quite routine. Eating, napping, going for walks … Spice up life with a day that stands out from the rest.
#4 It’s the holidays
Halloween, Christmas, St. Patrick’s Day and Easter – these are just a few of the holidays that can be celebrated with a dog costume. There are even parades that encourage dog dress up, so deck your dog in an appropriate costume and get into the spirit of the holidays!
#3 It’s a special occasion
It’s becoming a more common practice to invite and include dogs in wedding parties – or even have a doggy wedding. There are dog boutiques that specialize in doggy wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses, tuxedos and fancy attire that will ensure they are the talk of the party. Every pup has the right to look his best on such a big day.
#2 You Can Get Matching Outfits
This goes hand-in-hand with your pet wanting to do what you do. Not only will your pet get to dress up, you’ll be matching! It doesn’t get much better than that.
#1Best pictures ever!
Whether it’s for your annual Christmas card or you want a pic that goes viral online, taking a photo of your dog all dressed up is one of the best ways to make your shot memorable. Use them on your blog, social media profiles or on your office desk – a dressed up dog is a sure-fire way to get people to comment on your fashionable pooch.
