Do you only dress up your dog for special occasions? If so, you need to work on that. But what’s more special for clothes (i.e. costumes) than Halloween?! Your 4-legged bestie can be a superhero, princess, a unicorn, a lion, or dozens of other things. And why stop with just one night of fun? How about a canine costume party?
The Thundershirt. What dog owner hasn’t heard of it? While not a costume, or even clothing, per se, it’s a must-have for dogs who suffer from anxiety from things like crowds, unfamiliar situations, fireworks, travel, trips to the vet, thunder, loud noises, or hyperactivity, and Halloween can definitely meet several of those criteria. Even experts don’t all agree on why or how it works but the gentle pressure seems to be the key to calming the central nervous system. If your dog has any of these issues, try the Thundershirt! They’ll thank you for it.
