1,200+ Canines Don Tiaras & ‘Tails’ This Week for Doggy Proms

It’s prom season for teens everywhere — and that includes the canine kind! More than 600 doggy couples – decked out in bow ties and boas, tiaras and tails — will attend one of 38 Doggy Proms hosted by Best Friends Pet Care at its doggy day camp centers across the country.

The camp room at each Best Friends center is decorated for the special event with a Starry Night theme of dark blue and silver streamers, stars and a disco ball. And, just like at high school proms everywhere, a Prom King and Queen will be crowned at each event. The staff, also wearing prom attire, will organize games and doggy dancing and take photos of each canine couple to send home to mom and dad. Pet parents can log in from home or the office to Best Friends doggy cams and watch the fun on their computers or smartphones.

Dog prom season kicked off at Best Friends in Chicago with a block buster event attended by 40 doggy couples. Pet parents got into the spirit of the event with fanciful prom wear for their canine kids. “Our clients love special events like this,” said Bruce Blaine, manager of Best Friends Chicago Pet Care Center. “We strive to make doggy day camp entertaining for the pet parents while we provide fun, healthy exercise and socialization for their pets.”

Doggy proms will be held throughout the week at Best Friends Pet Care centers in the Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Denver, San Diego and Houston metro areas, across Connecticut and New Jersey, and in Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Charlotte and at Best Friends Pet Care center at Walt Disney World in Florida.
