Costume Sizing

Sizing is important to get a costume to look and feel comfortable on your pet so that he won't be fighting to get it off. Most manufacturers will provide the costume dimensions and some even include sizing recommendations. In the event that you find a costume that looks just perfect for your pooch, but you find no sizing advice, here are some very general guidelines:

First, measure length of pet's back from the base of the neck to the base of the tail, and jot down that measurement. Now match up that number with the following approximate sizing chart:

SIZEBase Of Neck
To Base Of Tail
XX-SmallUp to 6 inches
X-Small6 to 8 inches
Small8 to 12 inches
Medium12 to 16 inches
Large16 to 20 inches
X-Large20 to 24 inches
XX-Large24 to 30 inches

If you have a dog that is overweight, barrel chested or stoutly built, going up one size will probably result in a better fit. On the other hand, if you have a Dachshund or similar dog with an extra long body, choosing a smaller size is make work best. Halloween costumes for dogs that are too tight or too loose can become safety hazards for them - and that's the last thing we want on this fun day.

Please note that the chart above is just a rough guideline, be sure to compare it with the manufacturer's sizing.

Once your dog is in his costume, don't leave him unattended. Just in case he gets into any difficulties with his costume, you want to be at his side to assist him and deflect any anxiety.

So now that you're well informed about dog costumes for Halloween, go fetch the perfect one for your favorite dog pal.
