National Dress Up Your Pet Day: 10 Ways to Doll Up Your Dog
Short-haired dogs can get soaked to the bone and chill fast. When planning to be out and about with rain in the forecast, keep the RC Pet Products Packable Dog Rain Poncho ($12 at Amazon) on hand. The blue taffeta shell features sweet yellow duckies, a hood, and a hole for the leash. Reviewers note their dogs wear the coat without complaints, and the multiple reviewer pictures of happy canines speak volumes.
Is there a good reason not to own a dog tuxedo? We can't think of one. From birthday parties to fancy gigs, a dog tuxedo is a humorous way to involve your pet in all the festivities. The Dog Tuxedo, Frenchie Mini Couture ($15 at Amazon) fits small pups just right. One reviewer jokes that the costume steps up Fido's game.
If your pooch quakes in fear when you try to put on clothing, doggy hair bows are an easy and inexpensive way to refresh her style. This pack of 20 hair-bow sets in various patterns and colors ($12 at Amazon) can keep her dolled up in a new look nearly every day. The size seems best suited for smaller dogs.
