Many families want to include their pets in Halloween festivities, dressing up their dog or cat to coordinate with the kids’ or their own costumes. But some pets get stressed about wearing costumes and end up left out of the fun.
Creative grooming is a great alternative for those pets, says Traci Simo of Canine Company of Wilton. “Pet-safe paints and accessories can give a pet Halloween flair without the discomfort of a costume. Most groomers offer these; if you’re crafty, you can try them yourself.”
