[Infographic] 10 Halloween Safety Tips for Pets
Before selecting your dog’s Halloween costume, it is imperative to consider their comfort level first. Some dogs happily wear whatever fancy costumes you want them to wear, ranging from jackets to full-body jumpsuits. On the other hand, some fussy dogs will be better off with a simple Halloween collar or a tie. Also, make sure you use soft, lightweight materials while making the costume so that your dog feels comfortable all the time.
Also, before the dress-up day arrives, make sure you desensitize your dog to wearing that costume to make sure everything goes right on Halloween!
