Putting a costume on your pup can be tricky, especially when some dogs like dressing up more than others. If your pooch is hesitant towards their costume, there are a few simple steps you can follow to get your pup to love dressing up!
1. Pick A Costume Your Pet Likes
If your pooch has never worn a costume before, there’s a high chance that your dog will be finicky the first time you put a costume on them.
2. Let Your Pet Sniff it Out
Your pooch needs to get better acquainted with their costume so its best to lay the costume down next to him to sniff out what the garment is.
3. Get Your Pet Used to Wearing His Costume
Gradually build up your pet’s tolerance to his costume by putting it on him for a few minutes everyday leading up to Halloween. Make sure the costume fits them comfortably and allows them to move around freely.
4. Give Him Lots of Praise
Just like in regular training, praising your pooch with treats will give him a positive association with his costume.
