Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

Best Costumes Online Contest – Not Too Late to Get One For Your Pup (Supplies and Price are Going Down)

I know what you’re thinking…The Best Dog Costumes? In the middle of February? It’s not even close to Halloween! This is true, but I’ve been hording several dog costume images over the past couple years that I’ve been itching to get up on this site. If you’ve been reading my blog then you saw that Stetson was a Bumble Bee for Halloween. I also wore my Bumble Bee outfit on Halloween making us a swarm of bees. While I must admit, Stetson was an adorable bumble bee it pales in comparison to the originality of these costumes.

So here we are with the 6 Best Dog Costumes circulating on the internet. You can click on the pictures for a larger image (some are already at maximum resolution).

Number 6 – Spider Pug

Spider Pug

Spider Pug…Spider Pug…Does whatever a Spider Pug can do…Have you seen the The Simpsons Movie yet? For some reason I’m drawn to Spider Pug. I know…it’s not too original…and you might say “I’ve seen better”, but for some reason the right color coupled with perfect length spider legs makes me love this costume.

Number 5 – The Golden Lion

The Golden Lion

He could be Azlan from The Chronicles of Narnia…or he could be the Cowardly Lion from The Wizard of Oz. If you take a closer look he is part of our guide dogs of america group. You can see one of our guide dog puppy jackets on the left side of the picture. Bonus points for being a guide dog in training.  Inspired by this costume we took a shot at building our own lion mane dog costume for Derby.

Number 4 – Mini Knight And His Loyal Steed

Mini Knight And His Loyal Steed

This little guy reminds me of King Arthur, Excalibur, and the knights of the round table. I wish I could get my father’s cairn terrier into a similar costume, but unfortunately I don’t think the knight would survive the day.

Number 3 – Fluffy The Three-Headed Dog

Fluffy the Three-Headed Dog

If you’ve seen or read the first Harry Potter Book then you know all about Fluffy the Three-Headed Dog. Or maybe you’ve seen the Harry Potter Movies. Anyways, I’m sure the little boy in the picture got plenty of attention with his three-headed dog.

Number 2 – The Dog Legend Of Sleepy Hollow

The Dog Legend of Sleepy Hollow

How can this one be number 2. What a brilliant costume! It should be number 1. The Headless Horseman rides again…brings back memories of the recent Tim Burton movie The Legend of Sleepy Hollow with Johnny Depp as the odd Ichabod Crane and Christopher Walken as the Headless Horseman.  The headless horseman dog costume is definitely one of our favorites and I even see they have the costume listed on Amazon.com for purchase (however, not nearly as cool as the one in hits picture).

Number 1 – Snoopy! Watch Out For The Gator!

Dog Eaten By A Gator

I don’t really know if his name is Snoopy, but he is a Beagle. Why did I choose this one as the number 1 dog costume? It’s original, it’s humorous, it’s great!!! and it makes me laugh…An adorable Beagle getting eaten by an alligator.  This alligator dog costume would have gone great with Derby’s lion costume.  They do have some Alligator Infant/Toddler Costume
listed on Amazon, but I bet you could use your imagination and somehow make a similar dog alligator costume.

I hope you enjoyed the list. If you have any great dog costume photos please send them to me and I’ll try to post them on my next “Top List“. What do you think? Are these great costumes? Have you seen better?

Dress Your Dog or Cat (Any Pet) Up For Halloween – Part I

There is an ongoing discussion about the merits verses silliness of dressing up pets.  Each pet parent needs to know their pet and decide on costumes, dress-up, parties and trick or treating based on a combination of their pets personality and their own wishes.  I say, “Do what makes you happy… and what your pet will go for; no harm no fowl either way”.

Halloween is dog trainer Peggy Moran’s favorite holiday. Everyone in the family wears a costume. Even the dogs. Of course, the canines trick or treat too. In fact, Moran’s dogs are trained to hold their own goodie bags.

A Ghostly Crew

No wonder Moran is a renowned dog trainer (as well as a columnist for The Dog Daily). Still, when it comes to self control, her bag or pumpkin-holding, obedience-trained dogs are still dogs. “People give us biscuits,” she says. “Odd, though, that the dogs’ bags never fill up with biscuits. Gee, I wonder how that happens?”

Moran says most dogs can be convinced wearing a costume is fun. Some dogs are laughed at because costumes can look mighty silly, or so darn cute people giggle. Control yourself. Tell your pooch she looks so good that she’ll win the prize for the best costume. No one likes to be laughed at.

Moran says she understands some dogs appear to be totally humiliated when they’re dressed up. “In a way, I don’t blame them,” she says. “But then, many dogs really do like the attention, or at least tolerate crazy ladies like me.” For dogs who are not too sure about the idea, a little lunch meat can make up for poor taste in clothing. Moran suggests you begin a few months before Halloween (sorry, too late for this year), and just drape a costume over your dog’s back for a few seconds, then offer a treat. Soon your pup will drool with delight at the mere sight of the outfit.

When it’s time to actually put the outfit on your dog, enlist a partner to offer treats. Now take the outfit off. When the costume goes away, so does the treat conveyer. Gradually, keep the costume on for longer periods of time. Just don’t overdo the treats, or soon you’ll need a larger size costume.

Most pet stores sell costumes for pets. But you can also create your own. They can be simple – like the time Moran dressed up her one-eyed Dachshund, Mr. Winky, as a pirate. He wore a patch over his bad eye and had a toy parrot on his shoulder.

However, she generally prefers more elaborate presentations. In one, which she called the Red Hot Doggy Diner, Phoebe the Great Dane wore a harness that was attached to an embroidery hoop, which was covered with a checkered tablecloth. So it looked as if Phoebe was pulling a table. Moran created fake place-settings, including plastic hot dogs and catsup bottles. Her daughters dressed as diner waitresses Charlene and Darlene. Her Dachshund, who tagged along, was the punch line – wearing a hot dog bun.

Think that’s crazy? Well, they’re no crazier across the ocean. From just outside London, England, Alison Jenkins says, “Halloween is catching on here, and people do go door to door (this is what she calls Trick or Treat) with dressed up dogs.” Jenkins is the author of Doggy Fashion: Fancy Dress and Chic Costumes for the Dog in Your Life (Barron’s). “I believe our dogs deserve a bit of glamour. At the parties, it’s the dressed-up dogs who get the most attention.” Her book includes instructions on how to make homemade costumes, including the Fairy Dog Mother, Elvis: Ain’t Nothing But a Hound Dog, Prince of Darkness, and Blues Brothers.

Moran says, “I realize I have a problem. Personally, I do tend to go overboard. Still, I believe if all of this enthusiasm enhances the bond you have with your dog, and means you’re spending more time with your dog. What can be better than that?”

By the way, make sure your dog doesn’t get into the children’s candies. Chocolate, in particular, may make dogs very ill.
