Teaching Your Dog To Wear a Costume
Dogs need time to get used to new clothing and costumes, so be sure to purchase your pet's costume several weeks before the big event. Set it near him and allow him to sniff it and sit near it for as long as he'd like. Next, put it on him for a couple of minutes. Do this every day, gradually increasing how long he wears it until he's completely comfortable and not trying to take the costume off. Using plenty of treats is almost guaranteed to help the process along!
Whether you want your dog's career costume to be cute and kind or tough and burly, you're sure to find something you love on BaxterBoo. Maybe you can even help your dog to match your costume!
