Halloween Has Gone to the Dogs!

Halloween is going to the dogs!  Each year the holiday becomes more and more popular not only with adults and children, but their pets as well.  Actually it’s really not the pet that loves to dress up as much as it is the pet’s owner that gets the final say.  Who doesn’t love to see a dog dressed in drag on Halloween night, but it’s not for all dogs. Some pet Halloween costumes can pose safety and health hazards, so chose a costume that works with your dog.  It should not constrict the pet’s movement or hearing or impede his ability to breathe or bark.  The costume should be flame retardant and it’s important to remove any small or dangling accessories that could be chewed and swallowed.  You know your pets personality, if they’re happier going in their “birthday suit” than so be it.  However, that doesn't work with the owner! 

At Halloween Express we have a wide variety of adorable pet costumes for your dog.  Picking out the perfect costume for your pet is just like finding one for you child.  Every dog has his/her own personality and many of our costumes play up to that.  Is your dog wild and crazy or timid and shy?  Does she think she's "Queen" of the house?  Take all that into consideration when looking for a costume for your dog

There is not a dog alive that wouldn't look adorable in any of these costumes.  We have two Great Danes and a new puppy chocolate Lab that will be dressed up for Halloween this year.  I'm letting the kids pick out what costumes they want the dogs to be.  With all these great costumes to pick from I'm hoping they can decide on just one!  Remember pets love Halloween too!
