St. Patrick’s Day is about one month away, so now is the time to purchase your festive green attire. While you are shopping, why not pick up some accessories for your dog that celebrate the holiday? Your dog will feel proud sporting green on March 17 and will receive extra attention during its neighborhood walk.
Step 1: Buy an Irish-themed dog collar featuring shamrocks or the Irish flag. Dogs that want the bling can wear a green leather collar that features green olivine Swarovski crystals. Those who enjoy even more neckwear will love an ID tag featuring a shamrock or Celtic charm.
Step 2: Some dog owners prefer to keep the collar simple but add accents like a festive bandana. A reversible shamrock bandana is the perfect way to show Irish pride. The pooch can show off one design during the day and another at night. Dog owners can even have the bandana monogrammed with the name of their pet.
Step 3: Dogs who tolerate hair accessories will love a green feather hair clip, bow, or scrunchie. Creative pet owners can even make these themselves by adorning a green scrunchie with beads or crystals or gluing a shamrock sticker onto a bow.
Step 4: With the hair and neck accessories out of the way, it is on to the clothing. Lucky Dog tank tops in kelly green feature a shamrock appliqué and come in various sizes. Any dog will look adorable in a leprechaun costume that features a sequined jacket, bow tie, and hat. Leprechaun hats are also available separately.
Step 5: Many pet owners indulge in beer on St. Paddy’s Day and their pooches can enjoy a dog-friendly version. Bowser Beer is free of hops and alcohol, made entirely from malt barley and beef broth. The new Cock-a-Doodle Brew flavor tastes like chicken. Dogs will be lapping this beer out of their bowls all day!
Step 6: Dogs who prefer to eat their way through March 17 will love dog cookies shaped like shamrocks and beer mugs. These feature healthy ingredients like vanilla yogurt, honey, and whole rolled oats.
