It’s officially wedding season! And that means any furry friends need to look dapper if walking down the aisle. Luckily, Rover Boutique has you covered with silk, cotton, and cotton-blend bow ties, matching leashes, and a jaunty Peter Pan collar available exclusively via online dog shop Lucy & Co.

The classic bow-tie collars come in gorgeous rose quartz, powder blue, and a metallic gold, as well as various patterns including flowers, polka dots, plaids, stripes, and an edgy-mixed-with-preppy skull and crossbones. The goods are all locally manufactured in Toronto and handmade with durable nylon webbing, contoured nickel-plated buckles, and nickel-plated adjusters and D-rings. The accessories are $20 to $60, and they come in three different sizes for all types of dogs.

“I wanted to make clothing and accessories that were well designed for more function, durability, and fashion, made of high-quality materials, and locally manufactured for ethical reasons and quality control,” says Rover Boutique founder AnneMarie Minardi.

And while these adorable canine designs are intended as formalwear for special happy occasions, it’s good to keep in mind that many pups aren’t so fortunate. This is why Lucy & Co. has partnered with Susie’s Senior Dogs to help older pooches find permanent homes. Lucy & Co. works with the organization to find reputable senior shelters and then donates a portion of proceeds. A different rescue, haven, or organization is targeted every quarter.
