Ever since the first cave dog donned a saber-toothed tiger costume, people have been debating the merits of dressing up dogs. Billy doesn't dress up Zeke or Arthur. Jill, however, crafts elaborate home-made dog costumes every year and strongly believes that a dog should express his creativity. That said, always consider Fido's comfort and safety.
- The costume must be comfortable and not obstruct your dog's vision, hearing, breathing or movement.
- Never force your pooch to wear his costume if it makes him stressed, scared or nervous.
- Be sure the costume allows your dog to wear his collar, identification and leash.
- No doggy bags! Keep your dog away from the Halloween candy.
