Independence Day is just a few weeks away—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.
