Many dog clubs and animal organizations sponsor activities throughout the year where you and your pooch can bond. This is especially true at Halloween, when you and your dog will have an opportunity to take part in costume contests, parades, and other events to show off your creativity. Our local Humane Society, for example, has a “Howling Party,” while our dog club has its annual “Fun Fair.” Other organizations put on dog parades. The best part about all of these events is that you are able to show your dog off in costume!

Even if you are staying home this year and waiting on trick or treaters to come by, consider having your costumed dog go with you to the door. Or, if you have trained him to open the door to greet guests – even better! If this is the case, your dog should also be trained not to jump on guests when they arrive. A well-costumed dog greeter might have neighborhood children running away before they get their candy should he jump upon them.

Before I became a dog owner, I thought it was silly, unfair, and perhaps a bit inhumane to dress dogs up for Halloween. Since those days, I have become a dog owner and now realize dogs love to participate in all activities (except a trip to the veterinarian). Participating together in Halloween festivities with your favorite furry friend is another opportunity for you to cherish your time together.

WORDS OF WISDOM ABOUT DOG COSTUMES:

Over the years, I have learned a few lessons about dressing dogs up for Halloween. Every year when Halloween approached, I would work feverishly trying to create the perfect dog costume. Spending hours sewing together parts of old-fashioned mops, I attempted to make my terrier into an instant Komondor (a.k.a. Hungarian Sheepdog). For a day, I wanted him to feel like one of those amazing dogs with a Rasta-style hairdo. When people spotted him, they would exclaim, “Hey it’s a dog in a dog costume!” But, I really thought, It’s a dog in a people costume!

As I walked proudly down the street with him in his Komondor costume, he decided to shake until his costume des mops dragged along between us. From a distance, I thought he might get by looking like a street cleaner. But to my despair, he didn’t. As crowds watched, he simply looked like a dog dragging a huge mop down the street – how embarrassing!

This is when I learned the first two essential rules for dog costumes:

1) Keep the costume light.

2) Keep the costume simple.

The next year, I had a puppy to dress up. Constructing an adorable lightweight costume was my only goal. Since the puppy loved carrying objects in her mouth, I covered a stick in leather for her to bite and carry. Then, I attempted to put a pair of panties on her. She frantically yelped, bounced, and wiggled them off, and consequently refused to let me near her with the undergarments in hand.

This is when I learned the third essential rule of dog costumes:

3) Always give your dog a trial run before assuming she will wear any costume you muster. Or, better yet, have your dog wear the costume around the house before Halloween so that she will get used to it. Don’t learn the hard way.

The following year, I made plans to take my older dog to the Halloween dog parade again. Since I had learned from experience, I chose to fashion a costume that was simple, easy to make, and lightweight. My dog was going to be “a walking billboard!” I glued two rectangular pieces of foam core together with material in the center and was going to lay it over the top of my dog. This time, however, I was determined to be smart about it by letting him get used to it beforehand – following my own third rule.

It worked out great as he paced around the house and the billboard costume got some great laughs from friends and family members. I was happy that things would turn out better than the two years previous. As the parade began, we marched along together and he suddenly did the unexpected, as if he were planning it all along. He crouched down and the billboard became a non-flexible tent. He was able to walk right out of it, which got additional laughs from the crowd, but meant an immediate disqualification from the contest.

This is when I learned the fourth essential rule of dog costumes:

4) Expect the unexpected, even when you think you’ve thought of everything!

The following year, I tied a large helium balloon around the dog’s mid-section and put a small lightweight blanket over him. The blanket had a little box sitting on it with two tiny stuffed animals. I had ribbons around the bottom of the balloon that I attached to the box. The costume was adorable, or so I believed. It was a balloon-ride costume. The bobbing balloon must have been more exciting to the other dogs because as soon as the other dogs got sight of him, they started pulling away from their owners in hot pursuit of the shiny red balloon. Fortunately, I had a pair of scissors and cut the string. Up, up, up it went. Bailey and I were free, but so was our balloon. And once again, we were disqualified from the parade, as had become a tradition.

This is when I learned the fifth and sixth essential rules of dog costumes:

5) Be prepared. Before you go to any gathering, think about what you should bring along In case something needs a quick fixing or if something goes wrong.

6) Bring your camera and have plenty of film. I wished I had gotten a picture of my dog in his balloon costume before I snipped the string. Check your camera batteries too. And, have a friend take some photos of you and your dog together – you’ll enjoy them later.

Last year, however, I took the easy way out. I purchased a Superman costume from a costume shop. Most costume shops now carry such paraphernalia. The costume was lightweight, which was a plus. I decided I would just use the cape and keep the other parts of the costume as back up. So, once again, we were off to our annual dog club “Fun Fair,” and one of the featured activities was a Halloween dog parade with an award for “Best Costume”.

My dog was dressed upon arrival. I tied the cape under his chin and that was it. Kids shouted, “It’s Super Dog!” Adults responded by shouting “Not original!” Someone walked up to me and asked, “What happened? We expected you, at least, to be original.” Feeling guilty, I sat there not taking home any awards. But, it was the first time my “Super Dog” participated in his very first Halloween parade. To me, he looked great and I was so proud of him. Then towards the end of the night, we were called over, along with several other “Super Dogs” with the same attire, for a photo shoot.

Elegant Dog Costumes for Easter

by admin on April 17, 2009

Whether for the blessing of the animals or a couture Easter parade (the famous Haute Dog Easter Parade in Long Beach, California, is an event some dog owners spend weeks planning for), if your dog is the type who will allow a hat to be placed on its head, it can look as stunning as you, or, if you’re not careful, even more so.

The hat is probably the most important part of classy dog costume for Easter, but you don’t have to stop there. Many “Mommy and Me” costumes (think the array of outfits in the Legally Blonde movies) involve matching dresses or suits and even boots, as well as hats, sunglasses and necklaces. If you are going to go this route, you and your pooch will be well photographed, but you will probably have to design and sew the outfit yourself, or have it custom-made by a dog designer. The point is, however, that you shouldn’t be limited by what’s available in stores or what’s most commonly done. Any dog can be a bunny. It’s adorable, but it’s not your only option.

Fun ideas for halloween pet costumes

by admin on April 16, 2009

Halloween is a time of enjoyment for the whole family. At this time the pets can also be dressed up in different costumes to liven up the party. Pets always like to have a lot of attention. When the whole family is enjoying and getting dressed, the pets will also like to be a part of it. It is a lot of fun, dressing up the pets in various costumes. There are many creative ways in which pets can be dressed for Halloween.

Cats and dogs can be made to look cute wearing varied costumes. Generally pets can go as different characters such as the Superman, the Batman, or Spiderman. These costumes are available for children. They can be altered to fit the pets. The pets can be made to look like clowns by painting their noses red and by drawing red circles on their cheeks. A conical hat of bright color will give added effect. Other dresses include the dress of Darth Vader of the ‘Star Wars’ or characters from the Harry Potter series.

Halloween is a time when people dress up to scare people. Such scary costumes can also be worn by pets. Pets can be changed into witches. There can be witches who have long nails and cone shaped black hats. The witch can wear a black cape around the neck. Picture a cat or a dog with a small witch’s hat. Ideas can be obtained by looking around at adults and children’s costumes of witches. Pets can be dressed as ghosts. Dogs can be made to wear a coat, a hood and a colored leash. If it glows in the dark, it will look even better. You can also make your pet wear the dress of a werewolf.

Dogs can be changed into small horses. A small pillow can be tied with a belt to the back, like a saddle. A rope can be tied to make the bridle and a leash can also be given to lead it. A fairy costume can be made with cloth and wings can be attached with wires. A halo can also be created with wires. The attire will make the dog look like a fairy. A pet can be made to look like the devil by giving it a dress, red horns and a pitchfork tied to the collar. A dog can be made to look like a cat by making big paper ears and attaching it to the dog. A cat can be made to look like a dog with making drooping ears attached to it.

Another popular costume for pets is the Zelda Queen costume. Zelda is a very famous video game character. She is protected by her bodyguards and together they fight evil forces. This is also a television series.

It is easy to dress up the pets in a variety of costumes. The clothes can be bought at a store, ordered online or created by hand. It is easy to design a costume by using the material at one’s own home. Old clothes can be changed into costumes for them either by stitching them or attaching them with glue.

Care should be taken that the pet is comfortable wearing the dress. It should not be too restrictive or too loose. It should not be difficult for the pet to see, hear and move. It should not be a costume that the pet will bite off and choke with the pieces. It should be able to see in the dark and breathe freely.

Keeping these ideas and searching the internet and taking suggestions from adults or children’s clothing will help in getting fun ideas to dress up the pets during Halloween.

Homemade Halloween Dog Costumes that Rock

by admin on April 14, 2009

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to create a great Halloween costume for your puppy dog. Here are some creative ideas for homemade dog Halloween costumes. These ideas are especially useful if you have a large dog, and the costume you want is not available in his size.

Get a blue shirt for your dog. A large child’s shirt will probably do; check out your local Goodwill or Salvation Army store for cheap items. Create a Superman emblem out of red and yellow felt. Simply hot glue the red felt onto the yellow felt base. Place red socks on your dog’s feet. Create a cape out of silky red fabric, or salvage an old child’s costume cape. Then use the remainder of your yellow felt to create the belt. Draw with black Sharpie marker to create the detail. For a large dog Superman costume, simply increase the size of the costume pieces.

For an underdog Halloween costume, simply get a red long-sleeved shirt and hot glue a white U made of construction paper or felt to the front. Fashion a blue cape out of silky fabric, and tie it at the dog’s neck. It’s that easy!
