Tips for Executing the Perfect Dog and Owner Costume

Dog in a bear costume for Halloween

Shopping for the best dog and owner costume can be overwhelming, but try to keep it fun and be creative! Here are some tips to simplify the process: 

Pick a theme. Do you and your pet have a favorite movie or TV show you watch together? How about a food your dog goes crazy for? Does your pet tag along with you to the local coffee shop? The more personal, the better! 

Test the waters. Before ordering a dog and owner costume, be sure that your pet is willing to wear one. Some dogs don’t do well with clothing, so test the waters with an accessory like a doggie shirt or bandana first. Put the clothing on your pet multiple times for short intervals and reward your pup with treats. And if the dog Halloween costume you are considering includes a headpiece, be sure to test that out as well with a small hat or bandana. 
Prioritize your pet’s comfort. Halloween can already be overwhelming for a pet with all the parties and trick-or-treaters, so don’t make it more stressful with an uncomfortable dog Halloween costume. Your pet should be able to walk, sit, and lie down in their outfit. If you see signs of discomfort, such as scratching, whining, or biting the material, take the costume off your pet.
