3 Tips to Keep Your Dog Safe at Pride Parades

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.

1. Skip the Costumes

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.

2. Ensure the Costumes Fit (and Don't Cover Their Eyes)

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.

3. Stay 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.
