Halloween Costumes For Your Pets

Aug 17, 2007
While many adults, teenagers and children love to dress themselves during Halloween, there are many pet owners who dress their pets with costumes as well during this time. The market is filled with many types of pet clothing and costumes for events and Halloween is one of them. Basically you can find many good choices at your local pet store, at costume stores and even on online shops as well. Select Halloween pet costumes that are non-flammable and you should be extra careful in dressing up your beloved pet.

It is important that the costumes are light and comfortable for them to wear. It shouldn't be too tight for it might affect the blood flow on certain areas. It should be loose enough to easily remove the costumes from your pets and it shouldn't bother them in any way at all. It is best to let your pets test the costume several days prior to Halloween to make them feel at ease while wearing it. It is important that you watch your pet especially when in costume for there are certain pets that have the tendency to chew on these and the costume might contain buttons and such other things that your pet might accidentally swallow which can choke them. Do not give your pets candy most especially chocolate that you may get from trick or treating. These are not suitable for pets at all.

It is best to keep flammable items like pumpkins and candles away from your pets during Halloween. Cats most especially get to be very curious with things and they might accidentally burn themselves or knock these things off that can definitely cause serious problems.

Most pet owners know that cats hate to be dressed up but dogs are more open to it. If your pets are resistant to wearing costumes then it is best that you do not force them at all. You could just end up with a tattered costume since these pets won't stop at chewing or tugging at them until it is removed from their bodies.

There are many Halloween costumes for pet owners to choose from simple t-shirts, bandanas, capes, vests, hats and even complete cute adorable costumes. Choose one which will be more comfortable for your pet or one which it prefers to use. Those in light fabrics as well can keep them cool.

Dressing up your pets can be very challenging but the reward of seeing them so adoringly clad in cute costumes can definitely bring a smile to your face and to other people.
