You want your dog to celebrate Halloween but he hates costumes.
So, what do you do?
If you love Halloween, you probably want to dress up your dog a bit. But many pups can’t stand the feeling of being restricted in clothing. Some try to rip it off, while others just pretend like they can’t walk in it.
If your canine makes a fuss about clothing, you can still dress him up! There are a variety of options you can choose that are low maintenance and that won’t piss off your dog.
Let’s take a look.
DIY TY Beenie Baby
If your dog doesn’t like clothes, this can be a good idea. Instead of lugging around a big costume, he just has a string around his neck. It’s super simple to make, too! All you need is red ribbon, cardboard, paint and only a tiny bit of artistic talent.
Bandanas are the easiest way to make your dog look Halloweenish—and most pups don’t mind them. The options for this are endless: You could get a trick or treat pack of two or a blood splashed bandana (for a killer dog 😉
If you have a dog stroller, you can use that. But if not, you can use an actual baby stroller. If your pup is tiny enough, a doll one could do, too! For this to work, your dog can’t hop around, so maybe try to tire her out first.
She’ll love it because she doesn’t need to wear anything and walk around with you without even having to move!
A Lil’ Trump Toupee
If little accessories don’t bug your dog, you can make him into a better looking Trump. This Trump costume set comes with the signature hair and a presidential necktie.
If you have a black dog, you can simply make a white line down his back and he becomes the cutest skunk! Obviously, you’re going to need a pet-friendly spray paint. If you’re super creative, you can paint lines to make him look like a skeleton.
A Lil’ Bowtie
Bowties are another great option for dogs that are fussy with costumes. Because they’re similar to collars, your pup is less likely to hate it. If you think your dog will tug at a long tie, stick with the short bowtie. Get them here.
If your dog doesn’t like huge costumes but gets cuddly in a cozy sweater, all you need to do is find a themed one. For example, for a Halloween costume, you can dress him in a pumpkin sweater.
