You might think that dressing up your canine companion is going to be a real chore, but with these clever costumes, suiting them up is a breeze! Velcro fasteners and comfortable materials ensure a loose enough fit so that your pet can be totally immersed in their character, and still have the freedom of movement they're used to. If the costume has a headpiece, just slide their ears in, and use the Velcro fastener to secure it around their head. Pet costumes vary in fit and style, but many will just use the front legs as featured below. Just slide their paws through the sleeves and secure the costume around the torso. He'll be ready for trick or treating, a costume party for pets and humans, or just a quick photo opportunity!
