Our Favorite Festive Outfits and Accessories for Dogs

Do you consider the holiday season a perfect excuse to dress up your dog in some squee-worthy outfits and accessories? If so, this gift guide is for you! We've picked out some of our favorite dog sweaters, pajamas, bandanas and more — check them out in the gallery below. 

When it comes to any clothing or accessory though, always make sure the item fits your dog comfortably and doesn’t restrict movement. Keep in mind, too, that dogs should wear only clothes and accessories under close supervision and not for more than a few hours. Still, that should be plenty of time to snap an adorable picture for next year's holiday card!

Who can resist a sweater with a polar bear on it? Not us, that's for sure! This sweater's classic holiday-neutral design makes it perfect for dogs of multi- or nondenominational families, or for pet owners looking for an alternative to the traditional Christmas-themed options. Just make sure your dog doesn't wear it for too long indoors — you don't want him to overheat.

Of course, not every dog is amenable to wearing clothing. But there are still tons of nonclothing accessories that are plenty festive, including this great red and green buckle collar. (Just be careful that your dog doesn't reach the bow and chew on it.) We love that the "mostly nice" embroidering shows off which of Santa's lists your dog made this year — even if it was only by a whisker!
