Costumes shouldn't constrict movement, breathing or vision. Allow room for sitting, laying, treats.
Choose lightweight, breathable fabrics. Skip elaborate costumes limiting mobility. Prioritize comfort.
Don't leave pets unsupervised in costumes. Monitor for signs of distress like panting or agitation.
Avoid costumes with small, chewable accents pets might swallow. Use pet safe dyes only.
No Dangerous Accessories
Your pet should be able to easily wiggle free of the costume if needed. Avoid tricky fastenings.
Let your pet try on the costume before the big night. Ensure they can relax and play while wearing it.
Test It Out
Use your pet's collar and ID tag under the costume in case they escape.
