Pet Costume Safety for Halloween
Learn how to make a fun and creative Halloween costume for your dog, considering pet costume safety.
Lucy McCausland: Hi! I am Lucy Mccausland from a.k.a Spot. Were a dog store in Arlington,
Virginia and this Jessica and Gracie. Were doing a video on how to dress
your dog for Halloween and this segment is about safety in dressing your
dog for Halloween. So, when you are getting ready to start picking
costumes for the costume contest and parade that you may be interested in,
the first consideration is you are the best judge of whether or not your dog
will be in interested in doing something like this, sort of let your freak
your dog out. So if you have a got a dog that wont tolerate a costume and
will not like being in a group of big dogs or dogs walking on a parade, you
probably need to take that in consideration. After that you probably want
to consider, if the costume you pick will allow you to maintain control of
your dog as you would on a normal walk. So, you need to be able to put
the harness and the collar and lead on that you use on a regular day. So, if
you start picking different costumes go ahead and put the costume on and
make sure that you still have that control functionality that you have on a
regular walk. Also want to make sure that your dog isn’t going to overheat
in the costume that you pick.
Also want to make sure that its not a costume that will bind the dog or
have any thing on it that the dog can get off and choke on or that might be
poisonous if the dog swallows it. In addition to that, we have something
that will help you show up more effectively if the parade route just getting
dark during the parade. Have such things as reflective collars and leads
that you can use on your dog with the costume.
There are also blinking attachments that you put on the dogs collar that
will show up as it gets darker and make your dog more visible. There are
also reflective leg bands that you can use, put them around one two or four
legs, just something to help your dog show up. And then, I think
additionally you should make sure that if you have a water bottle to take,
just in case the dogs are getting hot on the parade route or whatever, go
ahead and fill it up and take it with you on the parade route so that the dog
can be hydrated during the parade.
Also, if your dog is going to draw a lot of attention from kids on the
parade route or whatever, make sure that your dog is a dog that feels
comfortable with people and kids approaching it, otherwise just keep your
situation under control, because you know that you can keep the dog away
from passers by that may want to pat your dog and that kind of thing.
So to wrap up, a little check list for the parade make sure that your dog has
ID tags on the collar, in case the dogs get lose for some reason, your dog
can be identified and you can be contacted. Also make sure that your dog
doesn’t get treats from strangers. You don’t want any chocolate, it can be
toxic to dogs so make sure you are aware of what people are giving the
dog and make sure that dog doesn’t pick things up on the road as you are
going through the parade.
And basically you just have fun on the parade route and enjoy the holiday
and that’s how we talk about safety on the Halloween parade route for
