As April approaches you might find yourself seeing orange as you and your pooch stroll through the concrete jungle past the Empire State Building giving off a bright orange light.  No, there is nothing wrong with your vision; April marks the beginning of the ASPCA’s Prevention of Cruelty to Animals month.  It’s only fitting that their signature color, orange was selected to represent this month.

On April 7th, you can show your support and join in on a celebration, Go Orange for Animals, in Union Square Park from 4-8pm with an all out event featuring pet adoptions, live music, refreshments and of course a variety of pet friendly activities.

Now, I’m guessing most of you are the over achiever type (like myself) who can’t fathom attending an event without having your pooch (and yourself) in full gear to show your support.  I have taken the liberty of finding some fashion forward orange options for fido at local dog boutiques.

Wagwear in the East Village makes it easy for your dog to lead the way with the bright orange nylon Metropolitan Leash ($34.00) and collar ($18.00) set.



Peace loving pups can show support with the orange sunshine “Summer of Love” tank found at Trixie + Peanut on East 20th Street.



Or if you have a preppy protester pooch on your hands, Canine Styles on the Upper East Side has an orange polo tennis dress ($38.00) that will definitely make a statement.

This past weekend I found myself wandering around the East Village where I stumbled upon an adorable store front with an assortment of ultra chic doggie essentials.  Wagwear, which opened in 2006 has been in the pet supplies business for over 10 years.  After entering the store I quickly found myself wanting just about everything I saw.  They have goodies ranging from ceramic dog bowls  to an organic Cotton Surfer Hoody. (made of light-weight 100% hemp terry) If you can’t make it down to the store, they have an easy to maneuver website where you can place an order (

My personal favorite would be their Braided Fisherman collar & leash set, perfect for the upcoming nautical trends that are showing for the Spring Summer 2009 seasons.  Retailing for just $22.00 for the collar and $34.00 for the set, these pieces are essential to any fashion forward canine wardrobe!

If you’ve got a patriotic pooch on your hands, the Merino Wool Flag Sweater is the perfect addition to your dog’s wardrobe for the presidential inauguration at the end of the month.  Hand knit from the finest Italian wool, your pup will stay toasty and warm as he shows how proud he is to be an all American dog!

Wagwear’s flagship store is located at:
48 East 11th Street
New York, NY 10003
