Remember, pet costumes at the end of the day are for the owner’s enjoyment. Kids love seeing pets dressed up, but please ensure that your pooch or feline enjoys costumes too. Some animals hate costumes and under no circumstances should they be forced to wear costumes if it makes them feel uncomfortable.
There’s no right or wrong answer to whether you should dress up your pet, but always make sure you’re not causing any harm or distress. Be mindful of your pet’s personality and their safety should be paramount. You know your cat or dog’s temperament best. If they have the patience and enjoy the extra attention from strangers, then go for it! Lots of dogs, including Rio, love the extra attention that cute clothes bring, meaning sometimes he cries to have them put back on!
