Canines in Costumes


Thinking about dressing up your dog this year? Keep in mind that some dogs will find wearing clothing stressful, uncomfortable or terrifying, so don’t force your pet to don a costume. Instead, consider cute alternatives like bandanas or attractive identification collars (or you know, just give ‘em good old holiday hugs). Other dogs may enjoy the attention that wearing a Halloween costume brings. If your dog seems to respond positively to an outfit, verify that the costume fits appropriately and that no loose strings, fabrics or ornamental details are hazardous to your pooch. And never allow an unsupervised pet to wear a costume.

 

Here are some of my favorite doggies in disguise…

This Halloween, keep in mind holiday pet safety—ensure your dog is secured in the home when answering the door for trick-or-treaters, keep chocolates, candies and seasonal decor out of their reach and ensure your pet is properly identified.
