Dogs And Easter
Easter is a big holiday where many people celebrate with a new outfit. Why not get your pup in on some of the excitement by getting him or her a new outfit, too. Dog clothes are very popular and there are a variety of options to choose from so you can find something that matches your dog's personality and your personal tastes without much difficulty.
Dresses for Girls
Traditionally girls will get a brand new, beautiful dress for Easter. If you have a female dog, you can extend this tradition to include your pup. The variety of doggie dresses available is large enough that you can find something that suits your pup perfectly. They come in all colors such as light green and blue, yellow, white and pink, so finding something in Easter colors should be easy as well.
Not only do you have a variety of colors to choose from but there are also many styles that include plain and simple designs to lacey and decorative. The main thing to remember about the design is to not get anything your pet could chew on that poses a choking hazard. Otherwise, you can look for designs that you believe will look the best on your furry friend. If your girl is rowdy and a dress just wouldn't fit her personality, you may want to consider looking into a nice shirt instead.
T-Shirts for Boys
Many people dress formally for Easter, which means a nice shirt or vest and your male pup can do the same. You can choose to follow tradition and dress him in a black vest and a white tee shirt or you can go more relaxed with a handsome tee shirt in any color. You can also go the funny route and get a nice slogan tee that will make your little man's personality shine through.
The great thing about dressing a boy dog for Easter is that almost any color is considered traditional so you can go for pastel blues or greens, a black, white or darker blues and greens. Generally, reds of any hue are not considered an Easter color but that shouldn't stop you if your little guy looks great in red.
Matching Leash and Collar
You can complete the Easter outfit for your pup by buying him or her a new matching leash and collar. There are many colors and styles available so it will be easy to match the accessories to the color of the new Easter outfit. Even if you can't find colors that match exactly, you can find something that goes with the overall color scheme.
Adding these accessories will make the outfit look more put together and stylish. Another great thing about buying a new leash and collar is that these are things your pet can continue using even after the holiday has past. Dressing your little girl or guy up for Easter is a lot of fun and it's a great way to include your pet in family activities.
