Tips for dressing up your pet
When using one of these Star Wars costumes for dogs, make sure you follow these tips.
- Make sure that the costume fits. It should not prevent them from breathing or moving freely. It should not be so long that they can trip or fall on it. This also holds true for a pet jacket.
- Take your pet’s lead. While it takes time for a pet to get used to a costume, if they truly don’t like it, don’t force them.
- No chewing. Pets love to chew. Make sure that there is nothing loose near their mouth that they can chew on.
