How to Choose the Right Costume For Your Dog

(Back to the top)

Here are some things you should consider before choosing a costume for your dog:

Consider the following:

  • Pick a costume your pet will tolerate wearing. If he or she is fairly docile you might be able to pick a fancier costume, if not, simple is better
  • Keep your pet's personality in mind. Is he a pirate type or more of a superhero?
  • Consider choosing a costume that will match with yours or your kids for extra Halloween fun
  • Pick a costume that you would like to see your pet wear again - not just for one night

Remember that whatever costume you choose the idea is to have as much fun with your pet as possible so pick what you like best!
