Whether it’s the Muttster Mash, a Halloween party or just dress-up time for Fido and Fluffy, pet costumes are becoming more and more popular. With hundreds of costumes and designs, there’s an outfit for each canine or feline companion. There are just a few guidelines to follow when selecting a costume.
- Make sure the costume allows the companion to see, breathe and move easily. This means no masks or costumes that could impede a pet from running from another, larger animal.
- No tight necklines. If the pet chews or paws at the neckline, this most likely means it is too tight.
- Only use lightweight fabrics to avoid overheating.
- Watch for choking hazards. No beads, small objects or dangling accessories that could fall off and be swallowed.
