Of course, before you find the best celebrity costume for your dog, you may need some tips and tricks for getting him to wear it.
How To Get Your Dog To Wear a Costume
Allowing your pet to get used to his costume on his time is essential for a successful Halloween, so be sure to begin the process several weeks before the big event. Start by placing his costume next to him and allowing him to sniff it for a while. The longer he seems interested in it, the better your chances are that he'll wear it.
You'll want to start teaching him to wear his costume several weeks before the event, starting with wearing it for only short amounts of time. When putting the costume on your dog, be sure to give plenty of praise and reward him with some of his favorite treats. Repeat the process each day until he can wear the costume for longer periods of time, doesn't seem upset when he puts it on and doesn't try to get parts of it off when he's wearing it. The hardest part of getting your dog to wear a costume will be deciding which one he'll look the cutest in. There are plenty of options available.
