Default Boos Halloween top

Here's Boo in his wee Halloween top, it's only a cheap one as he will not be wearing it long for sure and it's a bit big for him




I also got a witch costume (hat and cape) for Sugar but it's too big for her and even big on Spice

How do u all get ur dogs to enjoy photos being taken and also wearing clothes?? Mine hate both they sulk and freeze lol.

Aww little munchkin! How cute!

I think all dogs start out not loving clothes, but if you work on it being a positive
experience they get used to it in time. You have to associate a sweater with
something they love, such as a treat, playtime or a walk. My crew love putting
on their sweaters because they know it means walk time. Bella will even drag her
sweater in her teeth to me, so I put it on, she loooooves walks. As for pictures,
I use the sit or stay command, take a picture and then reward with lots of
praise, you can use treats also, just break them into ridiculously tiny pieces.

I like that Halloween hoodie by the way, it might be cheap, but it looks cozy.

So cute! Odie doesn't especially like wearing clothes, but we just made sure we put them on her often. We would put a sweater on her and then invite her to play or give her a treat. She still doesn't enjoy actually having clothes put on her, but once they're on, she's fine (as long as they're comfortable and fit well). She sometimes attacks them when I take them off though. Haha

He looks gorgeous. I was expecting Mylo to hate his hoodie but he didn't make any fuss at all. He didn't seem bothered by it. I think he was happy for it when we went out coz he was shivering even with it on.

My sisters dog Rocky hates clothes. But he is always freezing without them, so he has to wear them. While they were visiting me, Rocky borrowed a hoodie I bought Toby that was way to big. It fit rocky perfectly and it was the first time he didn't limp around and act like a robot while wearing clothes. Lol.

Boo is adorable! And what a perfect Halloween name.

Krystal made a really good point...a good fit is very important. A clothing item
that's too tight, too itchy or too loose is very likely to make your pup
uncomfortable and irritable. Make sure the item is not restrictive or too baggy,
that the dog can still run/move comfortably, without tripping over the sleeves,
etc. I personally like my dogs' clothes to fit like a second coat, close to their
body.
