All kinds of pets are invited to Scary Tails Trick-or-Treat, but they must be kept from getting loose. Large pets must be on a maximum six-foot leash; smaller pets can be paraded in wagons, pet strollers and pet carriers, which can also be part of the pet’s costume.

In 2014, Americans spent an estimated $350 million on Halloween costumes for their pets. (Source: National Retail Federation) That’s a lot of costumes. But how do you know if you are choosing the RIGHT costume?
First of all, keep in mind that some pets are not comfortable in ANY type of costume. Do not force your pet to wear a costume. If he or she struggles and tries to get out, or looks stressed or unhappy, you are better off to look at some costume alternatives. Be sure to follow my blog and watch for a future post on “Fun alternatives to Halloween pet costumes.”
If you think that your pet will tolerate a costume, then make sure that you do not choose one that may cause injury or discomfort. For example:
- Avoid any type of face or ear covering like masks that may confuse or disorient your pet.
- Watch out for ties or decorations that hang down and could trip your pet — or get tangled in their legs..
- Choose a costume in which your pet can easily stand and move.
- Avoid costumes that have removable parts – that could fall off — or get chewed off — and potentially choke your pet. Or take off any removable pieces before you use the costume.
- Avoid costumes that are restrictive in any area of your pet’s body, especially the neck. Always check to make sure you have a loose, comfortable fit around the neck, tail and legs.
- Choose bright colors so that people can easily see your pet – especially if you are going to be in a crowded or dimly lit place.
