I think Chihuahua clothes make wonderful dog Halloween costumes, not just because of their adorable size, but because Chi Chi’s are one of the cutest breeds around. Of course, I’m a bit biased since I have four of the little doggies myself, but many agree with me once the boys get dressed up. People that own Chihuahuas understand how much fun it is to put dog clothes on our tiny four-legged friends, and how much the dogs actually enjoy it. Most chi’s love the attention and the short-haired ones love the added warmth. So, when it comes to being the life of the costume party and getting tons of petting and doggie treats, I doubt many Chihuahuas would object. However, a Halloween costume for a dog does need to meet some requirements in order to be safe for a canine, no matter what breed they are. Two of the big points are to make sure holiday clothing is comfortable and visible.Comfortable dog clothing is important not just because it will make your pooch feel better. If a sweater or coat is too hot, your furry friend could overheat and feel sick. At the same time, if your canine is going to be outside with the cold autumn air, the apparel needs to be warm enough if the dog doesn’t have thick fur. A dress might look adorable but not hold in any heat for a shivering little hound. Make sure there are no annoying tags poking your pet’s skin as it can cause irritation and make sure there’s no sign of a rash or other allergic reaction when you first put on the outfit. You never know if there’s something in the fabric your pooch’s skin will react to.If your hound is going trick-or-treating or just out for a walk with his costume, having a visible getup will make him easier to see for car drivers. This will greatly reduce the odds of him getting hit if he accidentally runs in the road. Some helpful accessories are dog boots, since most are made with a reflective strip and come in many colors to match an outfit.
