These are some of the cutest costumes for your pet this Halloween

Just as has been the case for the majority of 2020, Halloween is probably going to be a little different than we’re used to this year.

With 2020’s scariest visitor undoubtedly being the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, this means that the usual frightful festivities of Halloween parties, trick or treating and more will be out of the question, which is leaving people to turn to other forms of fun to mark the occasion.

And one of those forms of fun is dressing the pets up in adorable Halloween-themed costumes for the big day instead, because why not?

Whatever your budget, there’s plenty of super spooky outfits to chose from this year.

Before we run through some of the ones we’ve come across on the market for Halloween so far though, it’s important that we first run through a couple of crucial things to remember when it comes to pet costumes.

There’s no denying that dressing your pets up can be cute, but it must be done safely.

1. Give your dog space: It’s important for them to feel like they have a choice and that they can escape if they’re uncomfortable, as opposed to feeling cornered or threatened.

2. Make the experience a positive one: Only let them wear outfits for a few minutes at a time initially and give them their favourite treats to create a positive association.

3. Introduce accessories or costumes gradually: It can take time and it’s not something you can always jump straight into.

4. Look out for signs of them becoming overwhelmed or upset: Including tucking their tail under, flattening their ears, turning their head away or easily missed signs such as licking their lips or yawning – it’s important they’re never ignored.

5. Never force your pet: If they become overwhelmed or upset, your pet can still join in the fun with simpler, less intrusive accessories like collar sliders and bandannas.
