[UPDATED AUGUST 2020]
Spring is here and that means shopping for new Easter clothes! While you’re doing your best to pick out cute outfits for your kids to wear on Easter Sunday, don’t forget to pick out a special outfit for your four-legged child.
Yes, your dog needs to look cute and adorable as well (even more so than normal), and I’ve got just the perfect Easter outfits for dogs picked out to get you inspired.
Everything from Bunny ears to Easter bonnets to pretty dresses. These outfits will make your pup ready for that family Easter photo.
Consider This Before Putting Your Dog In Any Kind Of Outfit
If you’re lucky enough to have a dog who is willing to wear anything you put on him and will happily parade around as well as sit still for the perfect photo, then lucky you!!
However, most dogs are not that easygoing and will certainly put up a fight when you try to dress them or attempt to put anything new on their bodies. So getting them to wear an adorable Easter outfit can be a bit of a challenge!
Here are some tips to keep in mind:
- Comfort: Make sure the outfit is comfortable and will not restrict your dog in any way. Your dog will certainly not want to wear anything that is uncomfortable.
- Size: Measure your dog properly, and use the manufacturer’s size chart as a guideline. Every manufacturer has different measurements and size charts, don’t assume your dog’s regular size for each outfit. For help in measuring your dog, check out this guide from wikiHow.
- Purpose Of The Outfit: Some of the Easter outfits listed below can be worn on a daily basis. Some of them can help to keep your dog warm, while others are just for a cute photo opportunity.
- How Well Your Dog Tolerates Clothing: Some dogs don’t mind wearing clothes, while others will do anything they can to get out of an outfit. For those dogs who don’t tolerate wearing clothes, there are minimal outfit ideas included below, such as headbands, bandanas, and hats. I’m sure you could manage to get your dog to wear a bunny ears headband long enough so you can snap a cute photo.
- Never Force Your Dog To Wear An Outfit: No matter how cute and adorable you know your dog will look wearing an Easter outfit, you certainly don’t want to force your dog to wear it. If your dog shows any signs of being uncomfortable, it’s time to take the outfit off. (Maybe keep it on long enough to get a picture).
- Get Your Dog Used To The Outfit: If your dog has never worn any type of clothing or a hat, you will want to get them used to it slowly. Have your dog wear the item for a few minutes, so he can get used to the feel, and offer your dog treats for wearing it. Eventually, your dog will associate the clothing with a reward and will be happy wearing the item or at least tolerate it.
