Of course dog costumes are fun but my little rat terrier would so much as stop chasing things if he had to wear a costume and the sheer scorn in his eyes would be too much to bear.
Since our top goal in life is to have fun with our pets we need to be a bit more creative with dog costumes. When the festivities come around, like Halloween, we have to get a bit more ingenious with the costumes and find dog costumes that are fun for him without the shame factor.
Here are some ideas:
Halloween Neckwear is about as unobtrusive while still being celebratory as you can get. Here are some favorites from some Popular Pets.
This is a great idea from @my_mountaindog
@varietypetember featured this easy and cute idea without a shaming
Another from @varietypetember that is more than neckwear but love the boa.
Here is another from @varietypetember we all love health care workers so why not have a pet healthcare worker Halloween costume?
Halloween Costume Dog Hats
A hat can sometimes be tolerated with even the most dog costume hater of dogs. These hat costumes seemed the most unobtrusive and accepted by the dogs that adorned them.
According to @wendymercure a little known fact is… Shih Tzu’s love Mexican food. They love Flautas, tortilla chips, even beer her little Shih Tzu is celebrating that love with this outfit.
Dog costumes are very funny and picture worthy for our Popular Pets which is why we discuss them a lot in our new book Mother Puppin’ Adorable: What to do when your dog is better than everyone else’s. Check it out for more fun ideas with your dog.
We hope these dog costume ideas for the dog’s that do not like dog costumes have provided some inspiration. We all want happy pets and unfortunately some dog Halloween costumes don’t make our pets happy but lucky that there are many alternatives.
