With Halloween coming up, I thought I'd feature some images from a dog costuming series I did recently. All local dogs, all rescued from shelters or rescue groups, and all a real ham for the camera. We had so much fun with this project. Each dog halloween costume was custom-made to fit each dog's size and personality by my wonderful costuming crew. And below is a little 'behind the scenes' video to show you just how fun we all had. For many dogs, wearing a costume is like doing a job or performing a task- just like basic obedience, agility, ring sport, etc. It is a physical and mental challenge, and once the task is accomplished they get rewarded with treats and praise and feel a sense of pride. They wag their tails, request scratches and belly rubs, and the entire experience is positive. This Halloween make sure your dogs are comfortable and safe in their costumes. Make it fun for both of you, and be sure to reward your dog for their patience.
So, what is YOUR dog going to be for Halloween? Let us know in the comments section!
