Independence Day is almost here—now is the time to start thinking about what your dog is going to wear for the festivities. We’ve gathered up our favorite 4th of July dog clothes, whether you’re taking them to a parade or enjoying a low-key barbecue.
Since some dogs run the other way at even the hint of dressing up, we’re including some festive non-clothing options to satisfy enthusiastic parents of reluctant pets. Fun collars and bandanas are a simple and easy way to dress up your dog without making them feel uncomfortable. As with any new piece of clothing or apparel for your dog, it’s important to always gauge your dog’s comfort level and to never force them into wearing something.
Here are some of our favorite festive 4th of July dog clothes, with two special notes: 1. Be sure to measure your dog to ensure their best fit, and 2. Remember that the 4th of July, with its overload of sights and sounds, can be a stressful time for pets. If your pet is expressing signs of anxiety or is nervous or jumpy about fireworks, it’s better to leave them at home than to risk the stress they would feel in a new outfit at the local fireworks display.
