What to consider before dressing up your pet for Halloween

Read some important things you need to consider before dressing up your pet for Halloween

Halloween is coming, and as we all know this is one of the most fun and creative seasons of the year.

Many people enjoy dressing up and doing the same with their pets to make them part of the celebration. That's all well and good, but before dressing up your four-legged friend there are several things you should keep in mind to make the celebration fun.

The first thing to consider is whether your pet would like to wear a costume.

Generally, if a pet is not used to wearing accessories it is very likely that it will not like to wear a costume. My recommendation is that before you put on a costume, try another, simpler garment or accessory that fits their animal anatomy.

Never use accessories or garments that make your puppy or kitten feel uncomfortable.

If you notice that the garment immobilizes him or makes him bend over to walk, it is a sign that he feels unnatural and uncomfortable. Alternatively, use complementary accessories that you can place on the collar or on the head such as flowers, hats or bandanas that you can customize. Ideally, your 4-legged friend should be happy and comfortable at all times.

Don't ridicule him or hurt his self-esteem for a moment of laughter that your furry friend may not enjoy.

Just like us, animals have feelings and get happy, sad, and even uncomfortable. When you think about putting a costume on your pet, first do a test and if the pet makes an uncomfortable face or runs to hide, it is not a good idea to leave it on.

You should avoid costumes and items that obstruct your pet's nose, eyes and ears.

Putting an accessory on our pets can be a lot of fun as long as we do it with their safety and comfort in mind.

Our pets have sensitivity, they feel and suffer as we do, remember that when you are going to make them part of any event.
