It's easy to be in a celebratory mood when stylish pups arrive on the scene of, well, just about any occasion! And with more folks showing up with their dogs in Pride parades across the country, marking the anniversary of the Stonewall riots and the fight for LGBTQ+ civil rights, it's impossible not to love all of the stylish puppies rocking the rainbow gear.

Before diving into all the glitter and glam with your pup, review some guidelines about taking dogs to parades to make certain they enjoy the experience as much as you. Because if the doggos below are any indication of the good times and shared community during Pride, maybe there should be pawrades every month!

Yorkshire terriers Scotty and Simone from the Philly/South Jersey area are making it happen in their rainbow-outfitted wagon and harnesses, which are only the beginning of a good parade excursion.

Heeeey! Throw Me Somethin’!

Duke is a rescued Rottweiler mix who's certain one glint of his big wide doggie grin means tasty treats for sure.

Showing Up for Support

While his one Mom walked in the parade, Ghost the Cane Corso and his other Mom made the rounds in their cheerful outfits.
