What is Your Dog Doing for Halloween?

Do you dress your dog up in a costume for Halloween? Millions of people do and some get extreme. In fact dog costumes have become a $400 million dollar industry. Halloween is just around the corner, and that can only mean one thing: Pet owners everywhere will soon be scrambling to find the perfect costume for their pooch. You can make your own and we’ll provide you with a few ideas later.  While we think it is adorable, consider your dogs comfort as well - Some dogs love wearing costumes and others don’t. Unless they are raised with things like coats and boots, they may make it hard to move.  Dogs like their freedom – so limit your creativity to a vest style costume and maybe a cap. Be sure that it is inedible and doesn’t have any small pieces that can fall off or be eaten, and it shouldn't be made with anything that could be hazardous to your pet's health, such as toxic dye or any paint. If you take your dog trick-or-treating with your family, be extra careful when crossing streets while walking at night. Have fun and be sure to bring lots of water for your canine companion.
