Dog Halloween Costume time at Jesse's studio

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!

I just blinked. And October had passed me by. But before it's really over, we must all don our favorite costumes (ridiculous or scary, joint human-dog costumes, two-person costumes, hand-made or store bought) and gather to celebrate the spirit(s) of Fall. Below is a list of events and places I'll be at this Halloween. I hope you all can join me. And if you do, make sure to tap me on the shoulder and say hello!
