Will your dog dress up for Halloween?

I put bunny ears on Mandi at Petco the other day and she looked so cute it got me thinking what she could be for halloween. My husband thinks I am crazy.

Do you dress your dog up?

My new puppy will. I plan on using Halloween as a major socialization opportunity. I bought him a little pumpkin shirt.

Re: Will your dog dress up for Halloween?

Jesse will be at doggy daycare on October 31st and they are having a costume contest.... I don't think I want to dress Jesse up - he hated wearing is graduation cap when he graduated obedience.

Being that it is Jesse's first Halloween I am trying to figure out how to socialize him to all the craziness of it with all the 100 kids that are going to show up at my door - yes 100 and probably more. We have a house on our street that goes all out with Halloween and also 20 actors and TV crews are coming in which draws the crowds to our street....

Re: Will your dog dress up for Halloween?

I'm the killjoy here, but I hate dogs dressed up, I don't ever put any kind of cloth in my dog beside the vest of the SAR ones.

I don't find it cute, but humilliating. I can stand a little lap dog with one, but the idea of a GSD dressed up makes my teeth hurt.

100% in agreement with LicanAntai. I also hate being the kiljoy but it does look humiliating. I have never understood the desire to do it. I like my dogs au natural.

Re: Will your dog dress up for Halloween?

I don't like the idea of putting clothes on dogs unless it's to keep them warm. I will admit though that I have dressed both my dogs up (non-GSDs) just long enough to take their picture. They did look humiliated, but only mommy saw them (lol).

Re: Will your dog dress up for Halloween?

Chrono likes to make these grunting noises that sound like a cow mooing when he's trying to get his halti off. Plus when he's stretching and he flicks his head up, he looks like a cow! We often call him Moocow so when we found a cow costume at petsmart we just had to get it heheh.

It's too small and he probably won't be going out this halloween, but it's just too silly to resist.

Ditto! No self respecting GSD wears bunny ears, bumblebee suits, pumpkins, ghost stuff etc. It is down right humilliating.

We did a dress up thing in a CGC class last spring and the instructor was hacked at me because I was not putting a heart necklace and bunny ears on Havoc. Of course the instructor had squeaky toys - oops! I mean Papilons!
