As part of the bonding process with our animals, sometimes we naturally assign human characteristics to them, beginning with the simple act of naming them. At Halloween time (or other event where a costume is appropriate), you might be considering dressing up your pet in a really adorable pet costume. Yes, believe it or not Halloween costumes are not just for people! Your animal will let you know if they enjoy this, and some will let you know quickly if they don’t. Many dogs enjoy the extra attention that they will receive by wearing a costume and although they don’t understand the significance of the costume itself, they will understand the extra petting, cuddling and affection they receive because of it.
