Including your dog into the festivals this Halloween is one of the most fun things you will ever do. Do not let him just curl up on his pet bed and miss the action when there are many ways he can make the event more enjoyable. At the very least, you should dress him up in a cute little dog Halloween costume, even if he's a big breed. There are all sorts of styles and sizes available, and the trick-or-treats that come to your door are going to be delelled to see an adorable hound decked out in an outfit as they get their candy. If you're having friends over for a party, what better conversation piece than a Chihuahua in a little angel costume? However, there are even more creative and fun ideas for including your four-legged friend into this spooky holiday with dog clothes.
Many parents worry about keeping their kids safe on Halloween. I think that in addition to having adult supervision, one way to increase a child's safety and enjoyment is to let the family dog trick-or-treat with the kids. You never know, some dog loving homes might just have a little doggie treat on hand for a dressed up canine. Kids can also feel more emotionally confident going up to a stranger's house and ringing the doorbell if they have their best friend right beside them. One really cute idea is to get the child and dog matching or coordinating costumes. Being so cute might even result in getting more candy!
Another fun idea if you're putting together a haunted house is to throw a costume on your dog and let it be part of the scare fest. If the event is meant to raise money for a good cause, for example, a costumed doggie host at the front door would be a great draw to bring thrill seekers in.
