Halloween is a night for scary surprises, free candy for the kids and the chance for you and your pets to dress up in Halloween costumes. Even though Fido cannot eat chocolate, your dog may enjoy getting all dressed up Halloween. Costume designers have begun manufacturing pet Halloween costumes in creations ranging from superheros to villains. Pet costumes are gaining in popularity both locally and nationally.

With the internet offering the largest shopping mall in the world, the selection of Halloween pet costumes is huge! Designers and stores around the world have the opportunity to showcase their latest costume ideas and fabrics for even the pickiest of pet owners. Anyone who plans to order pet costumes via the internet can expect to pay a shipping and handling fee, unless you find a free shipping offering, but with pet Halloween costumes being so lightweight, the shipping cost won’t be much.

When selecting pet Halloween costumes, it is a good idea to measure your beloved dog or cat ahead of time so that you know what size costume to order. You see, not all Halloween costumes for pets are one-size-fits-all. In fact, some pet costumes outfits will be specially made for different sizes of animals. A yellow lab and a poodle probably would not agree on the same size of pet costume, so stay away from costume designers that only make a one-size-fits-all design.

When you are selecting Halloween costumes, it is also a good idea to choose a pet costume that will be comfortable for your furry little friend to wear. Remember, your pet is also wearing a fur coat, so make sure the costume is breathable. It is also a good idea to remember that most pets won’t like the Halloween costume at first because it is probably a new concept for them. If you plan to show off your pet on Halloween, make sure your practice having them wear the pet costume several days prior to Halloween.

One way to do this is by showing your pet the costume, putting the pet costume on for a few minutes and then removing the costume. Afterward, give your pet a treat and be sure to praise them for their good behavior. After a trial run or two, not only will your furry friend be happy to wear the costume, but they may also be looking forward to receiving a treat afterward. Just make sure that you have a pet treat for them on Halloween, but no chocolate!
