Halloween Costumes For Dogs
As you scroll through the images, you'll find something cool for every size dog including: Small dog costumes that have the perfect image for little dogs, as well as some impressive large dog costumes that will create a more macho image for a big dog.
Of course, there are also plenty of great costumes for your middle sized woofer. One thing to keep in mind is not to get anything too fragile for a very active dog or anything to heavy for a little pooch.
And, if this is the first time you are dressing up your dog - you may want to choose a simple costume or perhaps just a hat and neck ruffle. This will give you a chance to judge your dog's comfort level in wearing unfamiliar apparel before you invest in something more elaborate.
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:
|SIZE||Base Of Neck|
To Base Of Tail
|XX-Small||Up to 6 inches|
|X-Small||6 to 8 inches|
|Small||8 to 12 inches|
|Medium||12 to 16 inches|
|Large||16 to 20 inches|
|X-Large||20 to 24 inches|
|XX-Large||24 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.
