Dogsized covered last night’s 2014 New York Pet Fashion show which was a sight to be seen! A flurry of dogs and their owners dressed to the nines in regal costumes, crowns and gowns - a new twist on the Tutors.
The evening was kicked off by the event co-chairs, Gregg Oehler and Ada Nieves. The New York Pet Fashion Show isn't only about pet fashion, but is also a rescue benefit. The program started off with a runway show of rescue dogs (all available for adoption) in elaborate attire. These shelter dogs having never been on a stage before (some even being recently saved from a puppy mill), walked the runway (with their volunteer handlers) as if they’ve been always been professional dog models. They came from a variety of shelters in the New York metropolitan area from Bideawee to ACC.
Numerous vendors from across the globe were also at the event selling their items for dogs from dog wine and apparel to dog jewelry and beds. Vendors also took to the stage to have their dogs model products, including spa wear and a priceless diamond dog collar designed by Candy Udell from London Jeweler’s, creator and designer of the famous $2.5 million dollar bra for the Victoria’s Secret Angels show.
The pinnacle of the evening was the Royalty Costume Contest. Countless designers, dogs and their owners lined up to attain the honor of being the “King or Queen of the Royalty Costume Contest”. Pictures are worth a thousand words – we have some photos here, but are also putting together a photo gallery so you can see all the fantastic designs. Celebrities from Miss California to Andrea Arden participated in the show and Maria Milito from Q104.3 MCed. The New York Pet Fashion Show is produced by Oehler Media Inc.

Are you thinking of adopting a dog to bring home to the kids but are not sure which breeds can be considered safe? Because as much as we love dogs and their company, some breeds do not mix well with children. It could be due to several factors like personality traits, dog sizes, aggression, and more. What is clear is that these pooches are the ones to watch out for the most and should not meet your kids.
If you want to adopt a new dog, there is a chance that you may be conflicted between a big dog or a small dog, am I right? This decision can be tough to make for some. So, why not make it easier on yourself and consider a medium size dog instead?
Did you know that dogs are just as much at risk of getting skin cancer as we are? Seriously! Most of them are strongly susceptible to skin damage from sunburns, but not many people think that. And with the temperatures steadily rising, as we get closer to the spring/summer seasons, this can also mean more visits to the veterinarian if we are not careful.
Are you looking for a way to keep your overly-excitable pooch distracted and busy when you are too busy to play with them? If this is the case, then what you need is a dog treat dispenser. This is because boredom is one of the many reasons that lead to dogs chewing up furniture or even acting overly aggressive sometimes.
Are you trying to figure out what is the best dog breed to bring home to your family? There is no question that dogs make great companions, and if you have kids they are a great way to help teach them the value of responsibility and unconditional love. The tricky part is choosing the right dog to blend in with your family lifestyle, and if you are looking for some medium sized dogs, then you have come to the right place!
