Is your furbaby ready to celebrate National Dress Up Your Pet day on January 14th? Regardless if you are a pet owner who enjoys to doll up your pet with costumes or more of the type to just throw on a sweater for your animal when the weather is chilly, January 14th is a day to make memorable for your pet Below are a few ideas on how you can make National Dress Up Your Pet Day extraordinary for your special furbaby.
Plan A Memorable Day
Make January 14th a holiday to show your pet extra love and attention. If you have a dog, take him for a walk or on an adventure at a pet-friendly park so he can have fun and show off his doggie sweater. A trip to Petsmart for a new outfit, toy or treat is definitely an excellent way to spoil your pet. Cat lovers can adorn their pet with a cozy sweater and plan on cat treats for your furbaby as well. If you have the time, try making homemade treats for your pets. Crafty pet owners can also make doggie chew toys and catnip toys for cats. Below are links to websites with homemade treat recipes and tutorials for handmade pet items.

Have a Dress Up Photo Shoot
What better way to commemorate National Dress Up Your Pet Day than to have a photo shoot? You don’t need to hire a professional photographer. When your pet is all dressed up in their special outfit, set up a fun scene in your home or outdoors and snap some pictures of them. You can even create a photo album online to share with friends or send the photos to an online photo printing service such as Snapfish. On their website you’ll be able to create a photo book with your furbaby’s holiday photos.
Host a National Dress Up Your Pet Day Party
Send invitations to your friends and family members who own pets and would be interested in getting together to celebrate National Dress Up Your Pet Day. While planning the finger foods for the human guests, don’t forget to have a variety of treats for the pets. If the pets in attendance are dogs, plan a game of fetch. Cats and dogs can both enjoy having a costume contest at the party. Take lots of photos at the event, then you can forward pictures to all of the guests in attendance.
