With all the cuteness created by Chis in their costumes, it's tempting to take them outside for Halloween! If you do, don't forget the basic safety tips:
- Keep your dog away from chocolate.
- Apply reflective surfaces to your dog's costume so she's visible at night.
- Keep your dog leashed and away from heavy foot traffic.
- Be prepared to carry him if you go on a long walk.
- Don't forget a bag for any incidental doggy doo--that's scary stuff!
Please feel free to add other costume suggestions!
