Today’s Wordless Wednesday showcases Dexter The Dog‘s Halloween costumes. But before we dive into the crazy poses Dexter does or doesn’t do, I wanted to say a little something about choosing a Halloween costume for your dog.
First, it’s always important to remember what our dog wants. If your dog is not used to being dressed up, slapping on a dog Halloween costume may not be a good idea. If you do decide your dog is costume-friendly, please ensure the dog costume is dog-friendly. In other words, make sure your dog can move around freely, has full range of motion, can see all around himself, and is comfortable. The costume shouldn’t be too heavy and should not obstruct his vision. Remember, dogs communicate with their entire body; by modifying a dog’s look or ability to move properly, you may be putting him in an awkward position with other dogs. Please make sure you pay close attention to his dog-to-dog interactions when he’s in costume. 🙂
