Top Tips for Getting Your Dog Comfortable in Their New Outfit

The key to helping your dog feel at ease in their stylish new costume is patience and positive reinforcement. Take things slow and make the experience rewarding for your pup.

Start with short periods

Have your dog wear the outfit for just 10-15 minutes at first while giving them treats, praise and play. This helps them associate it with positive experiences. Gradually increase the time over days or weeks as they get accustomed to it. Forcing them to keep it on for too long at first may create anxiety and discomfort.

Provide distractions and rewards

Give your dog interactive dog toys stuffed with peanut butter or treats to help distract them from the outfit. Offer lots of verbal praise, belly rubs and play to make wearing the costume a positive time. The more you reward and engage with your dog while they have it on, the more comfortable they’ll feel.

Make necessary adjustments

Check that the outfit is fitted properly and not too tight, restricting movement or causing chafing. You may need to loosen straps or fasteners and re-size parts of the costume to ensure your dog’s comfort. Trim away any loose threads to prevent chewing. Make any needed alterations or replacements to keep your dog content.

Practice the activity

If the outfit is for a specific event like a costume contest or themed party, do practice runs. Put the outfit on your dog at home while doing an enjoyable activity like playing, walking or training. This helps them associate the costume with the fun activity and environment. Your dog will feel more at ease when it’s time for the actual event.

Provide opportunities to rest

Even with the best introduction, some dogs may feel overstimulated or stressed in a new outfit. Make sure to build in time for your dog to rest in between wearing the costume. Removing it for periods lets them relax and prevents excessive anxiety. With regular short sessions, they’ll get accustomed to it over time.

With patience, positive reinforcement and the right technique, your dog can get comfortable and even excited to wear their stylish new duds. Helping your pup feel at ease will make the experience enjoyable for you both!

Dog Costume FAQs: Answering All Your Questions on Dressing Up Your Pup

No need to fret – we’ve got you covered with answers to all your pressing questions about dog costume. Read on to find helpful tips and tricks for choosing and using outfits for your furry friend.

What size do I need?

To determine the right size, measure your dog while they’re standing. Measure around their neck, chest, waist, and length from neck to tail. Compare the measurements to the size chart for each costume to select the best fit. For maximum comfort, choose a size that is not too snug. It’s best to measure your dog before buying to ensure the perfect fit.

How do I put the costume on my dog?

Start by showing your dog the costume and giving them treats to help them associate it with positive experiences. Gently and slowly put the costume on them while providing praise and treats. Give them time to get used to the feeling of wearing the outfit before going outside. For anxious dogs, you may need to slowly desensitize them to the costume over multiple short sessions. With patience and positive reinforcement, your dog can get comfortable wearing outfits.

How long can my dog wear the costume?

As a general rule, puppies under 4 months and senior dogs should only wear costumes for short periods, about 15-30 minutes maximum. For most dogs, 1-2 hours at a time is a good limit. Watch your dog for signs of discomfort like panting, pacing or trying to remove the costume. Never leave your dog unsupervised while wearing an outfit. Remove the costume if your dog seems distressed.

With the right introduction and positive experiences, many dogs come to enjoy wearing outfits for special occasions. However, some dogs may never feel fully at ease in costumes, and that’s okay too. Your dog’s comfort should always come before dressing them up. If at any time your dog shows anxiety or distress, remove the outfit immediately. With patience and treats, you can help make your dog’s costume experience enjoyable and fun.


So don’t let another occasion go by without dressing your pup in an outfit that sparks joy and fun. Our collection offers stylish and comfortable costumes for all seasons, events, and playdates. Let your dog showcase their personality while you bond over the delight of seeing them model the latest fashion trends. Go ahead, unleash those smiles. The wagging tails and doggy grins will let you know that it was all worth it!
