Pet Costumes Designed for Fido to Trick or Treat in Style
As if there was any doubt, pets are truly part of the family and our best friends. The Huffington Post reported this amazing statistic about the number of Americans buying Halloween Costumes for Pets. HF’s correspondent, Caroline Fairchild, reports that, “Americans are expected to spend a record $370 million this year on Halloween costumes for pets, according to the National Retail Federation. That’s a whopping 40 per cent more than what we spent on our pets just two years ago.”
So don’t tell us you haven’t planned your Halloween pet costumes yet. Because you know that there is no way you are going trick or treating without your beloved fur baby. And you wouldn’t want to leave your dog without a pet costume for Halloween, now would you? Imagine your poor pet’s embarrassment as he or she walks around in nothing but his fur clothes while the other dogs in the neighborhood are strutting their fancy Halloween finery. Like this Yoda pet costume, complete with a headpiece and attached fake arms, that no Jedi pooch should be caught without!
No worries. We’ve got you and your pet covered with some of the funniest and most imaginative pet costumes we could find on the internet. Your beloved pet is part of your family so be sure to include him in the Halloween fun. But don’t tell us we didn’t warn you when you knock on someone’s door on Halloween, and your little Wonder Woman steals the show. Can you think of anything more adorable than this little super poochie all dressed up with that cute little tail wagging back and forth underneath her super red cape?
You can choose pet costumes of just about any theme you can think of. Of course, dogs are like people. Some enjoy the fuss and being dressed up, and others are just not going to want anything to do with it. But your pooch doesn’t need to be left out of the fun completely. We’ve found some cute hats, bandannas and other pet costume accessories that most any dog will take to. Add some of your own embellishments, like a little sign around their neck saying, “Great dog costume”, “Bet you thought I was a real dog!”, or “Will trick or treat for Milk Bones”. You know your pet better than anyone, so just use your creativity and, most of all, have fun!
