Buying Tips and Ideas
If you don’t know where to start when it comes to finding dog Halloween costumes, then no need to worry—we have got you covered in that department. There are a few tricks that you need to keep in mind when looking for that perfect ensemble. One is finding out your dog’s size. This typically depends on how big your dog is, and how much they weigh. The size can also depend on if they have big ears or clipped ears—even if they have a long tail or a short nub.
Your local pet store will have all that you are going to need
in order to find the right size for your pup before you go putting everything
you think is adorable in your cart. Veterinarians can help also, of course. Another
aspect is the decision of if you are looking for an item that is a full
ensemble, something a little cheaper, or maybe something that will match with
the rest of the family or one that will match with the rest of your pets? Once
you have that figured out, then your decision will get much easier.
Pet Clearance Costumes
Sometimes, it’s also better to just go straight to the clearance rack and get all of the best items that you find for your pet this Halloween. It’s not that different than when you’re shopping for yourself. The cheaper, the cutest, and of course, the better.
You can find high-quality items on any clearance rack, and that says the same for your fur baby. Sounds pretty awesome, doesn’t it? Or, if you’re creative you can even go ahead and make your own costume, and make a DIY project out of it. This is perfect for all of our stay-at-home fur moms, or those who just can’t find that perfect item on the racks.
Accessories for Pets
Looking for that perfect accessory to use as your pet’s costume this year is way easier than finding one that is considered “deluxe” that comes with a ton of different pieces. Girl pups are just fine with a pink tutu or a doggie crown. Boy dogs are fine with capes or just some onesie that makes them look like your favorite superhero. In addition, it’s way easier on your wallet. Some costumes can go for a lot of money—almost as much as your costume for Halloween. So, if that’s something that you’re interested in, go for it and get just an accessory. Trick-or-treating will still be just as fun, and they will still get a lot of attention. It’s a win-win!
