More than 600 canine couples, decked out in bowties and boas, tiaras and tails, will attend one of 38 Doggy Proms hosted this week by Best Friends Pet Care (www.bestfriendspetcare.com) at its doggy day camp centers across the country.

The prom venues – the doggy day camp rooms at each Best Friends center – are decorated in a Starry Night theme with dark blue and silver streamers and stars.  There's even a disco ball.  

And, just like at high school proms everywhere, a King and Queen will be crowned at each event.

The staff, wearing prom attire, will organize doggy dancing and take photos of each canine couple to send home to mom and dad. Pet parents can log in from home or office during prom to watch the fun on Best Friends doggy cams from their computer or smartphone.

Dog prom season kicked off in Chicago with a block buster event attended by 40 doggy couples. Pet parents got into the spirit with fanciful prom wear for their canine kids.  "Our clients love special events," 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, New Jersey and Maryland, and in Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Charlotte and at Best Friends Pet Care center at Walt Disney World in Florida.
