Lucy McCausland: Hi!I am Lucy McCausland from a.k.a. Spot. I am here today with Jessica and Stuart big and Ducky. We would like to talk about how to dress your big dog for Halloween costume contest or parade, and one of the things about the big dogs is that they always get left out of all of the cute apparel. So, if you are planning to buying a store bought costume for your big dog, that can happen for a number of reasons. You may not feel like making one or have time to make one of your own, you may not have that creative edge, but if you take your dog with you to shop for the costumes that’s the best way to get the proper fit et cetera. Typically, the way to measure a dog for a costume is not unlike measuring them for dog coat. The measurement is from the collar to the top of the tail in either inches or centimeters, but again it’s best just to take the dog and try the costumes on. One of the things you want to consider is, can the dog perform all the bodily functions in the costume that it does on a regular walks. The dog needs to be able to drink water, and he needs to be able to pee. You have to be able to have the same control on the walk or on the parade with the dog in costume as you do a regular day. So, I always suggest get the costume, put the harness and collar or lead on the that you use on a normal walk and may be do a drive run around the neighborhood or just make sure that its some thing that the dog can move in. The costume should not bind the dog in any way. It should not choke the dog in any way, and there shouldn’t be anything on the costume that the dog can eat that would be some thing that would cause the dog to choke or might be poisonous. And so these are the just a few little ways to get your big dog dressed up for the festivities and again just go try them on and then give it a dry run and have fun on the parade.
