|Pets in Halloween costumes, one of our favorite parts of the holiday!|
- Spend some time getting your dog used to wearing a costume. Start with smaller items, like sunglasses, hats, etc. Work your way up to an entire costume. If the costume has several pieces, introduce the costume in pieces.
- Make sure the costume fits. Even the most patient dog isn’t going to wear a costume that is too tight or uncomfortable or will make him too hot. Also make sure your pet is able to see, walk and wag his tail.
- Give him treats for wearing the costume. If he learns that wearing the costume = treats, he will be more willing to wear it.
- Don’t try to force it. Making a dog wear something that he doesn’t like won’t make him like the costume more. In fact, it will do the opposite.
