How To Celebrate Halloween With Your Pet

posted by The Daily Fluff October 27, 2016 0 comments

We can barely believe it, but Halloween is just around the corner! This spooky time of the year is a great excuse for you and your pet to get dressed up and enjoy some sweet treats.

If you’re feeling like getting ghostly, then here are a few tips to make sure everyone enjoys the celebrations.

Dress them up:

Time to get into costume! As if we even needed another excuse to dress up our pets. Whether you want to wear matching costumes, or want to let your furry friend shine in the spotlight, make sure that your outfits are pet friendly. Keep any zips or embellishments out of the way so your pet can’t chew on anything not-so-sweet.

You can even make your own costume, like our friends Biggie and Lil Kim:

“Our human dresses us up all the time; it’s super easy to make a ghost costume out of an old sheet”

Spooky snaps:

If you’re going to get all dressed up, you might as well have a photoshoot, right? Ask a friend to be your photographer and grab some happy-halloween family shots. You will cherish these photos for a lifetime, and they’ll definitely be double-tap worthy too.

Treat time:

Why should the humans have all the fun? While we wish we could share our Halloween takings with our pets, we all probably know that’s not the best idea. Make sure they don’t miss out on all the sweets, and prepare some animal-only treats. Try freezing plain yoghurt and raspberries for a bloody looking treat.

Safety first:

While Halloween is great fun for us humans, it’s important to be weary of common things that can put our pet’s health at risk. Here are a few tips:

  • Keep all lollies and treats out of your pet’s reach. Chocolate can be pretty toxic and cause nasty side effects like vomiting, diarrhoea, increased heart rate and even seizures. To avoid any visits to the vet keep your treats in air-tight containers and keep an eye on your pets at all times.
  • If your pet gets a bit spooked by visitors, make sure you keep them distracted from any ghostly or mysterious guests. We would recommend taking them to another room and playing their most favourite game, or grabbing them their favourite treat to distract them.
  • If you’re planning on decorating the house, make sure you keep any decorations well out of reach for your little friend!
  • With people coming and going, there is a chance that your pet might get out through open doors. Grab your pet an ID tag with their name and your number listed, and make sure that they are micro chipped so they can be returned home safely if they go wandering

Fun Ways To Dress Up Your Pet

posted by The Daily Fluff September 8, 2016 0 comments

Admit it, you might play judgmental pet owner when you see a dog walking around in a nice knit sweater, but deep down you know that your dog would look adorable in one. Dressing up your pets doesn’t mean you have to go super OTT, it can be both practical and adorable too.

Unsure what to dress your pet in? Read on below for some great ideas…

Bow-collar and neckerchief:

For those of you who are new to the world of pet fashion, starting off with simple accessories is probably the way to go. A simple bow-collar, or neckerchief can be a great way to start.

Oliver the Cavoodle would definitely agree:

“When we have guests over or when I’m visiting friends, mum and I always open my box of neckerchiefs – it’s a white wooden Jack and Jill box with my name written on it – and we choose which neckerchief I’ll wear. My favourite brands are Toby Wigglebottom and Charlie and Bella“.

Sweaters and coats:

Keeping warm in the colder months can be difficult, especially for breeds like Sphynx cats and Chihuahuas. Sweaters or coats are a great way to combat the cold and the changing fashion trends. Most pet stores stock sizes down to extra small, meaning that they would definitely suit our feline friends too (if you can get them on them!)

Costume dressing:

Costume dressing is for those of us who completely and totally embrace the world of pet fashion. I mean, if you’re going to dress up, shouldn’t your furry friend be able to as well?

Not only will a costume make your pet look sassy-as-hell, it will also provide you with photos that will last a lifetime. With Halloween on the way, the internet is full of costumes for pets of every shape and size. No really, for every shape and size.

So whether you’re feeling conservative or festive, there are endless ways to spice up your pet’s wardrobe. If in doubt, why not let your pet decide?
