Whether you’re looking for a costume for Halloween, a birthday party or just because, we’ve put together this list of trending costumes that are sure to send your Insta followers into fits of ooohhs and aaahhs! Trust us, there’s nothing cuter than a pet in costume. Nothing.
Dressing up your pets can be a fun experience. Before winning any costume contests, it’s important to consider these important tips to guarantee your pet's comfort, safety, and happiness.
Comfort: Always confirm the costume is comfortable. It shouldn't be too tight or restrictive. If your pet is uncomfortable, they'll let you know by trying to wriggle out of it!
Safety: Avoid small, easily detachable parts that can be a choking hazard. Also, consider the material; it should be non-toxic and safe for your cat or dog.
Temperature: While that thick woolly mammoth costume might be adorable, it might not be ideal for a warmer climate. Always consider the weather and temperature when choosing a costume.
Fit: Our pets come in all shapes and sizes. When buying or making a costume, ensure it's a good fit for your pet. Measure twice, buy (or sew) once!
Test Run: Before the big day, do a test run with the costume. This will help your cat or dog get used to it and give you a chance to make any necessary adjustments.
ALWAYS supervise your pet when they're wearing a costume. If they are visibly uncomfortable or distressed, take it off.
By keeping these considerations in mind, you'll ensure that the dress-up experience is fun and safe for both of you! Happy dress up!
