National Dress Up Your Pet Day was founded in 2009 by Celebrity Pet Lifestyle Expert and Animal Behaviorist, Colleen Paige, as a fun way to celebrate our beloved pets and to support the pet fashion community.
"It's important to remember though, that it's not, however, a day to disrespect our pets with uncomfortable, vulgar and/or seasonally inappropriate costumes for the sake of a laugh or photo shoot" says Paige. Have fun with your pets by dressing them in cute outfits and safe costumes - but keep your pet's comfort level in mind when involving him/her in this fun novelty day. Make sure that your pet can see and hear properly and that they aren't wearing something that might overheat them or incorporate any parts that they may chew off and swallow. You may also want to include more treats and toys into your activities to make it a truly enjoyable experience for your beloved furry ones! And remember....ADOPT! DON'T SHOP!"
National Dress Up Your Pet Day does not support or promote businesses that sell products that include real fur of any kind.
