When wedding season starts to heat up, many humans begin the scramble to find something appropriate to wear—what stands out but not too much? Does this still fit? Will it match what everyone else is wearing? These are but a fraction of the obstacles humans must navigate for fancy dress. Luckily, few of these considerations apply to the most joyful of attendees: dogs. If your pooch needs a dog tuxedo to sport to a wedding or fancy occasion—or even just because—we’ve rounded up some A+ options.
Also for your consideration are some tips on making sure your dog is as comfortable as possible in fancy dress. Grab yourself a flexible measuring tape (such as the kind you would use to measure your own self) and take measurements of your dog’s neck and chest (right below the armpits). Having these measurements handy will help you to determine what size tuxedo your dog requires for maximum comfort and fanciness.
Another good idea is to check the reviews for your chosen tuxedo—as we all know, ordering online can be a challenge. Some tuxedos might run large or small, so the feedback from other fancy dressers can help make sure you find the right fit for your celebratory pup.
Distinguished, refined, classic—it’s a bestseller for a reason! This handsome tux comes in two pieces, the suit itself and the bowtie collar, making it easy to install upon your dog with convenient Velcro straps.

This is an especially nice option for low-clearance dogs, since there are no pieces that might drag on the ground and pick up dirt. It also has a silky soft inside for those who are a little more sensitive. Comes in sizes Small to XXL.Shop on Amazon
