This season’s fashions are lightweight and relaxed, taking your pup from a stroll on the avenue to a quiet summer sunset soiree. Meet our six fabulous style models that were selected from America's Top Dog Model Facebook Fan Club Dog Days of Summer Style Contest. Check out their winning style and tips for keeping cool.
