Let’s face it, our pets are part of the family too- and we might even like them more than some of our family members! The love and comfort we receive from our pets is unconditional, and maybe that’s why they often become our closest companions.

National Dress Up Your Pet Day is a chance to show off your pet’s unique style and have fun doing it! Founded by Celebrity Pet Lifestyle Expert and Animal Behaviorist, Colleen Paige, this day is perfect for pet owners everywhere to express their pets’ personalities. Bonus: it falls on a Friday this year, so you can continue celebrating with fun outfits all weekend!

Does your pet sometimes wear a sweater or jacket to keep cozy in chilly weather? Share a photo of your fashionable pet with us on any of our social media pages. Find us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or LinkedIn and drop a photo in the comments with the hashtag #NationalDressUpYourPetDay. Join our community and connect with fellow students, parents, and educators who share your love of pets.

Short on time? For an easy look, you can use accessories from home like a pair of sunglasses, scarf, bandana, tutu or bow and snap some cute poses of your furry friend. Just be sure that your pet is willing to cooperate with getting dressed up and that your pet is safe, comfortable, and not restricted from normal movement while they’re wearing clothing.
