Dress Up Your Pet Day is a celebration of fashion for our furry friends. Many people celebrate by dressing up their furry friends in comfortable clothing, made specifically for pets. This holiday is designed to be a fun occasion. It brings pet owners together and encourages bonding between owners and their treasured fur-babies. From cozy knits to themed costumes, this is a great way to let them shine.
Why this PAW-SOME Celebration?
Colleen Paige, Celebrity Pet Lifestyle Expert and Animal Behaviorist, established this pawesome celebration of pet fashion in 2009. She is a pet lifestyle expert by trade and launched the event to encourage owners to spend more time with their pets. Pets get to dress up in impossibly cool and cute outfits and to join forces with other animal enthusiasts.
As well as enjoying the opportunity to showcase creative talents, Dress Up Your Pet Day is also a social occasion. Hundreds, even thousands of pet lovers join together to celebrate their best buddies and meet new friends along the way.
Dress Up Your Pet Day was started to promote wellbeing and encourage bonding between pets and their owners. It is essential to be sure what your pets want. While some dogs are happy to dress up in a snazzy jumper or a winter coat, it may stress others out. Pet costumes should be safe, comfortable, and owners should never force an animal into an outfit.
