According to the National Dress Up Your Pet Day website, National Dress Up Your Pet Day was founded in 2009 by Celebrity Pet Lifestyle Expert and Animal Behaviorist, Colleen Paige , and sponsored by the Animal Miracle Network as a fun way to celebrate our beloved pets and to support the pet fashion community.
“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,” said Paige. “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,” she added.
