Pet costumes have become all the rage in recent years. They are always fun (provided the animal thinks so, too), but they are even more delightful when paired with an owner’s unique holiday threads. Wondering what you and your pet can pull off this Halloween? Look no further than West Park Animal Hospital’s 5 best pet costumes that you can share in, too!
Thinking Outside The Box
Pet costumes can be very simple, a fact that pleases many pets. From simple embellishments on the collar to easy on/easy off tube type shirts, there really is something for everyone. If your pet is game to play dress-up with you, we recommend these five amazing combinations:
- Who wouldn’t want to play Daenerys Targaryen and her dragon? You can make a set of simple dragon wings for your pet, while you don the most fashionable long blond locks in the seven kingdoms. Win-win!
- Andy Warhol, Marilyn Monroe, and a can of Campbell’s Tomato Soup This combo obviously needs a third participant, but we guarantee that all of you will have a blast entertaining each other and those around you. Get ready to pose for all the flash photography!
- This twist on the two most lovable kid’s cartoon characters are sure to win any costume contest, as will the more traditional approach to Scooby Doo and Shaggy.
- We really like the idea of a pet playing Popeye or Olive Oyl. These pet costumes are so darn cute, you might have to adopt another “Pupeye” to keep Olive Oyl company (that means you get to play Brutus)!
- Why couldn’t both you and your pet dress up like Where’s Waldo? The costumes are easy enough and comfortable, to boot. Slam dunk!
Halloween Pet Costumes
There is so much to love about this unique fall holiday, but only if Halloween pet safety measures are observed and enforced. Keep Halloween treats out of reach, and remember to increase your pet’s nighttime visibility with reflective tape or light up collars.
Please watch your pet for any signs of irritability, anxiety, or stress, and do not force him or her to wear the costume. Be aware that your pet may try to remove the costume, and could end up in a tangled mess. Likewise, certain components can come off pet costumes or become loose; do not allow your pet to chew or eat.
Keep Us In Mind
Whether you choose from our top five list, or decide to dress up as the Big Bad Wolf and Little Red Riding Hood (or Scuba Diver and Jacque Cousteau or Cleopatra and her Pharaoh), we hope you’ll avoid a pet emergency this fall. Please let us know if we can help, and have a safe, happy Halloween!
