Dog Leash Reflective


Pets in Costumes by Jane Dinunzio

Are you planning on taking your dog out dressed in costume for Halloween. If so, there are a few simple tips to ease your pet’s anxiety and stress. Don’t forget, your dog will not understand this extra activity and noise is something that is supposed to be going on. He may be spooked, (no pun intended) and become very agitated and unhappy. If this does happen, why bother? Don’t forget we are putting our dogs in costumes for our own entertainment. Our dogs feelings should come first.

PRACTICE:

Dress your dog up in the costume your have selected a couple of times before the big day and walk him around in it as you are going to do on Halloween. This way at least he won’t be intimidated by this unusual apparel. If he is used to it he may relax and enjoy the walk about with all the extra activity being interesting, rather than distressing.

BE AWARE OF YOUR PETS ANXIETY:

Dogs in costumes will let you know by their actions if they are not going to tolerate being dressed up. I know it seems funny to watch a dog struggle when we try a hat or sunglaases on them, just for the entertainment value. But this is distressing and putting a dog in a full costume may be something they just won’t tolerate. Once again if your pet can’t get used to the costume, don’t bother.

BE VISIBLE:

Some dog costumes come with a reflective coating on them, but if you have one that does not, simply add some reflective tape which you can buy at the hardware store.

MAKE SURE THE COSTUME IS SAFE:

There should be no loose pieces or decorations on the costume that your pet can ingest. Your dog may find it way to appealing to chew off dangling buttons or material, which could cause choking or worse, a bowel obstruction. Also make sure nothing is hanging around his feet where he could get tangled or trip.

MAKE SURE THE COSTUME FITS PROPERLY

Just as you do with his collar, check and make sure you can get two or three fingers between your dog and the fabric or tie-on that goes around your pet to hold the costume in place. Any ties or wraps around the neck should have extra care and attention, making sure they are comfortable.

MAKE SURE THE COSTUME IS LIGHTWEIGHT:

Remember this is like us wearing a fur coat and then covering that up with more clothes. If the costume is too heavy he may overheat and become exhausted. Carry a pet water bottle and offer it often. Watch for excessive panting or lagging behind. If this happens remove the costume.

USE A LEASH AND MAKE SURE ID TAGS ARE ON YOU PET:

This is something all responsible dog owners know, and needs no extra explanation.

CARRY YOUR OWN APPROPRIATE PET TREATS:

We should all know by now not to give our pets chocolate as it is toxic. Also anything with a wrapper or a lollipop stick is once again dangerous due to the possibility of choking or bowel obstruction if they are swallowed. If you have healthy dog treats, then your pet won’t feel left out of the evening’s festivities.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN AND MAKE SURE PETS AND PEOPLE ALIKE HAVE FUN!

A happy dog at Halloween is something all responsible pet owners wish for. Check out some cute costumes as well as ways to make your dog stress free here:
