Is Your Pet Ready for Pride? These 14 Rainbow-Colored Outfits Are Perfect for Any Pooch
With Pride parades and socially distanced parties back on the agenda this June, we're all getting excited for the rainbow-colored gear that will fill the streets (and social media!) in celebration of the queer community. But all that glitter and glam will be so much more fun if your four-legged friend gets to join in, too. So while you're planning your own wardrobe, don't forget to find a fashion-forward option for Fido!
Whether you and your pup identify as members of the LGBTQ+ community or are showing your support as a rainbow-clad ally, there are a few tips to keep in mind while searching for the perfect 'fit for your pooch. First things first: If your pup isn't comfortable pulling off a look inspired by the Season 13 queens of RuPaul, skip it. There are plenty of ways to show your support for the queer community that don't require a full-scale overhaul! For these outfit-averse doggos, try something simple instead. A rainbow leash, collar, or bandana can be a fashionable (yet functional) option for pets who want to strut their stuff but may not be ready to prance down the catwalk in a full costume.
You'll also want to choose a costume that fits your pup well. A T-shirt can be a casual option that still makes a statement, but it shouldn't be too tight or too loose, or impede their movement (nobody wants their pup to take a tumble while strutting their stuff in the parade!). And while hats or doggy sunglasses might be cute for a brief photo op, if they cover your pet's eyes or affect their vision, it's probably a good idea to leave them at home.
Finally, if your fur baby doesn't do well in crowds or around people or pets they don't know, snap a quick pic of them in their rainbow regalia from home, then cuddle up on the couch while you partake in the celebration virtually together. But if your dog loves meeting new friends and the two of you do decide to head out to the festivities, be sure to carry extra water so they (and you!) can stay hydrated throughout the day. If it's an especially hot day, you may also want to consider whether dog booties are needed to help protect their paws from the hot pavement.
Now that you've got the basics on dressing your pooch in clothes that work for their size and comfort level, it's time to find a look that'll show off their best assets. Whether you bring them out for the parade or just on their daily walk, once your pet is decked out in head-to-tail rainbow colors, there's no doubt they'll take the crown for the proudest pet around!
