Halloween is the time of the year that many dog owners dress up their dog. From the National Retail Federation and Prosper Insights, which surveyed 6,961 consumers, more than 31 million people will be dressing up their pets in costumes. The projected spend is around $480 million costumes for dogs (and cat too). That’s a lot!

4 Ways to Dress Up Your Dog This Halloween
1. Some dogs don’t always love wearing costumes. Festive dog neckwear can be an alternative; like Halloween dog bandana or dog ties
Just Say BOO! Halloween dog bandana from The Sand Dollar Dog Co.

2. A headband-style hat or a hat that sits on top of the head (some with an adjustable strap) are great options to have your dog participate in Halloween fun.

3. Be creative and make your dog a DIY Halloween costume. I love this Loofah dog costume made by Crafts by Courtney.
4. If you plan a store-bought Halloween dog costume, here are three tips on how to find a suitable costume for your dog.
a) Find a costume that fits your dog comfortably.
b) Halloween costume should not overwhelm your dog. Avoid accessories that would limit your dog to walk normally.
c) Pay attention to your dog’s body behavior. Watch out for a tucked tail and pinned ears. These are signs of stress.
If you plan to dress up your dog for Halloween, it is important to be conscious of your dog’s temperament. Be flexible to make adjustments for your dog to have an enjoyable Halloween. Is Your Dog Dressing Up For Halloween?
