HOWL-O-WEEN Costume Ideas for Your Pets
Spooky season is upon us, and it is time to find the purr-fect costume for your cat or dog! Whether you are going trick-or-treating with the family or hosting a costume party, let your pet take part in the Halloween spirit.
Are you looking for a fun coordinating costume for your cat or dog that will put you over the edge in the Halloween parade or trick-or-treating adventure? There are several options available for everyone from the tiniest kitten to a gigantic Irish Wolf Hound, but it is important to find the right costume that fits your pets’ personality. If you are planning to do a fun coordinating family theme with your canine or feline, you can certainly get creative by dressing up as characters from your favorite TV shows and movies. If you are taking a more DIY approach, with just a few materials and some imagination, you can make an unBOOlievable costume. Simply find an old black t-shirt and white paint to create a frightening skeleton, or start wrapping your pet’s body and ankles in gauze or toilet paper to create a scary mummy.
Whether it is a full onesie of a scary Pirate or a small Halloween bandana or batwings, it is important to always make sure your pet is fully comfortable and safe. Never restrict your pet’s ability to breathe, see, hear, or go to the bathroom. Always measure your pet before purchasing a costume. Similar to measuring for a pet harness, start by measuring around the neck, chest, and down the body. It is important that nothing is too snug. You should be able to fit at least 2 fingers between anything restrictive. Many of the breed and weight examples may not fit their exact measurements.
Whether you choose to make a costume or purchase one from the store, just imagine the fun reactions and Instagram pics you will receive for making your pet the most spooktacular on the block. Have a Happy Halloween!
