NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — If you’ve been wanting to doll up your pet — Tuesday is the perfect opportunity — it’s National Dress Your Pet Day!

Maybe you want to match outfits with your furry friend, give it a bejeweled collar, or a funny costume — go crazy!

The day was founded in 2009 by celebrity pet lifestyle expert and animal behaviorist Colleen Paige — as a bonding opportunity.

But remember not to make your furry friend miserable.

If they hate dressing up, let them sit this one out.

And just like people — pets want a comfortable outfit that fits —

Avoid clothes that restrict movement or can be a choking hazard.
