Halloween is right around the corner and maybe you have an idea of what you would like to wear, but do you have a Halloween canine costume picked out for your dog yet? Yes you heard me, your dog!
There are so many ideas on costumes for pets. A dog is the best pet to dress up because like us, they don’t mind looking silly.
The possibilities are endless. When my dog Shiloh was alive (shepherd/lab mix) he used to go trick or treating with me and the kids. Of course he was in costume; he was the hit of the neighborhood.
One year he was Catdog from the cartoon of the same name. We just found the largest size stuffed animal of a cat at a thrift store and tied it to his backside. That costume, because the show was so popular was the talk of the town for a week.
Another year we dressed Shiloh up as a nanny. He wore an apron and a dust cap. That was a big hit and very easy to do. He looked like the dog Nanna from Peter Pan.
Now we have a Dachshund and he is so much fun to dress up. Chewy loves wearing clothes, I think it’s a Doxie thing. He was Spider-Man one year, a costume we bought online. There are many sites for dog costumes online. It makes things very easy.
The next year I made his a costume. The party we were having was a Super hero theme so, I just sewed a piece of material to one of his sweaters with Super Sausage written on it. It was a super hit.
The possibilities are endless. If you can’t make it just order it. The pet costumes do not cost a lot. But you can always make one. If you have a white dog put black spots on him and he is a Dalmatian. Tie a baseball cap to his head and put a jersey on him. Put a karate outfit on him and tell everyone he is taking lessons.
Whatever you do on Halloween don’t forget mans/woman’s best friend. You will have a spooktacular party and have a dog gone good time. Do it right and your dog could win the best Halloween costume award.
