Let’s be honest, there is something super fun about dressing up your pet. I’m not even necessarily talking about full, head to toe seasonal pet wardrobe (although, I do approve of pets with their own closets); even throwing on a cute bandana or a timely holiday costume will end in all smiles.
In celebration of National Dress Up Your Pet Day, we wanted to provide a few safe and fun tips to ensure that you have a fun day dressing up and that your pet steals the show.
DRESSING UP IS NOT FOR EVERYONE
First and foremost, their happiness is the number one priority. If your pet is having a major meltdown, or simply does not enjoy wearing clothes, then it’s time to move on and find a new favorite national holiday. Not every pet enjoys wearing heavy knit sweaters or uncomfortable tutus, no matter how much you want that perfect shot for your Instagram feed.
FIND SOMETHING THAT WORKS FOR THEM
Choose outfits that are comfortable over what you find to be cute, and check that the outfit or accessory fits. Restricting movement or the ability to breathe properly for prolonged periods of time can cause injury or in some cases, illness. Next, take into consideration your pets physique and environment to ensure maximum comfort. For example, if your animal has thick fur and lives in a hot environment maybe try a light tee or a bandana so they don’t overheat. If your pet has short fur and lives in the snow, try a sweater or insulated vest to keep them warm. Lastly, pets like to chew! Avoid loose or dangling pieces which can be a major choking hazard. It’s all fun and games until there’s a freak sequin accident!
