Dressing up your dog for the holidays!

Picture a sweet girl in a beautiful wedding dress, with a ruffled skirt. Then picture a handsome boy in a black and white tux with a red bow tie. Can you picture it? Now imagine that this boy and girl have four legs and slobber. Dog costumes, what people will think of!

Pampering your pooch is a very fun thing to do. Your dog gives you so much enjoyment and unconditional love that having an option to buy them fun things like hats, bandanas or costumes can be as much fun as shopping for one of your kids. The only difference is, the dog will pretty much wear what you put on it and your child may not!

The world of dog clothes is very versatile. Dogs now have sweaters, tuxes, dresses, Halloween costumes, coats, jackets, casual wear, rain gear, scarves, hats, jumpsuits and pants. The possibilities are endless when it comes to keeping your dog in style and fashion.

Some people love to dress their pets up for the holidays. Halloween is a particular popular time to dress up your dog. Some people like to have their dogs go trick or treating with them, and they want them to join in the family picture and I admit, those pictures are usually cute. I think one of the cutest pictures I have ever seen was of a family that all had Harley Davidson attire on, and they had a huge Bull Dog dressed in a leather Harley Davidson jacket. The jacket fit the dog’s personality, and it made for a great picture.

Dog costumes are great conversation pieces also. Any dog wearing a costume usually gets commented about. I have seen dogs wearing lady bug costumes, biker jackets, princess costumes, wedding dresses and tuxedos. The variety is amazing. I think that any costume that you could find for a child or an adult, you could find for your dog.

Dog costumes, clothes and accessories range in price from $5 for a hat for your dog all the way up to $30 for a fancy dress. There are several occasions that you may want to dress your pooch up fancy. If you are having a dinner party, or a costume party or even a birthday party, there are outfits for each occasion. Your dog can be the best-dressed girl or boy on the block!

Whatever the occasion, whether it be Christmas, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, St. Patrick’s Day or just because, have fun with your dog, give it some love and let it be the best dressed and pampered pooch on the block!
