While we prepare our home for Halloween and plan our perfect costumes, let’s not forget about finding costumes for our fur babies as well. These DIY yourself costumes for your pets are both adorable and easy to put together, with items you can find around your home!
Tips for dressing up your pet
- No one knows your pet better than you, so be aware of what your pet is comfortable with and if they are up to wearing a costume or not
- Make sure to stay away from possibly hazardous or toxic material that animals could ingest
- If you are taking dogs on a walk or for trick-or-treating, be sure to keep treats handy when putting the costume on and for letting them know they are doing a good job
- Keep your pets tags on, just in case they get lost
