The Fourth of July is almost here and it's almost time for the celebrations to begin. Are you searching for a great way to make this year even more special? Consider letting your dog join in on some of the fun. You can dress your pup like a patriot with doggie clothes to match what you're wearing or choose something to complement your outfit.
Dressing up is a great way to show your patriotism and celebrate the holiday. Getting the family pet in on some of the action is a great way to include her in on important family activities and it's just a lot of fun. There are so many options available that it's easy to find something to suit your pet no matter what size she is or what type of outfit you're searching for.
When choosing an outfit for the Fourth of July, you can choose a solid color and accessorize with bows or ribbons to add the theme colors to the outfit or pick out one of the many patterned outfits designed just for this holiday. You can find all types of clothes for dogs for both him and her with the traditional Red, White and Blue 4th of July colors.
These include colorful tank tops and t-shirts patterned with stripes or solid colors with stars and clothing designed like the American flag. You can even find red, white and blue shorts, which he can wear alone or pair with a plain t-shirt. All of these are both patriotic and adorable.
If you choose to go semi-formal, you can choose a beautiful doggie dress or matching skirt and shirt set for her. A suit with a tee shirt underneath to add flare and originality is a great choice for him. Another option that would be great for both boy and girl dogs are the t-shirts and tanks with funny messages that reflect the Fourth of July holiday.
If you'll be outside a lot during the day, especially if your dog is usually indoors, you may want to think about getting her a pair of booties. These act like shoes by protecting the soft pads on her feet from the hot pavement but they're flexible like socks so they're very comfortable.
Accessories are also a great option for pets that don't like to wear clothes. You can use bandanas, bows, neckties, collars and leashes to show off his holiday spirit. He can still be a part of the celebrations while staying comfortable and happy.
Keep an Eye on Your Pet
In many areas, it can get really hot outside during this time of year so keep a close eye on the weather and your pet. Even though dressing your dog in Fourth of July clothes designed to help celebrate this holiday is a lot of fun, you don't want her getting too hot.
If he starts digging at his clothes or appears to be uncomfortable, then it's probably time to give him a break. He may be ready to retire to his nice, comfortable doggie bed before you finish celebrating.
