Trick or Treat with ‘BIG’ Dogs

Does your dog like to Trick or Treat with you and your kids on Halloween?  Of course they do!  Well, this year don’t forgot a Halloween costume for your dog too.  This simple horse costume for big dogs is so easy to make and you probably have all the materials at home already.

Gus is showing off his horse costume with his favorite cowgirl.  We simply cut 2 pieces of felt in oval shapes and glued them together to create the saddle.  Next we attached 2 pieces of ribbon with safety pins to tie around Gus’ mid-section.  We cut long strands of yarn, tied them together, and attached the bundle to the saddle with a safety pin.  Finally we used Gus’ easy lead harness since it looks like a horse’s harness.

The only problem is what to do when your horse refuses to ‘giddy up?’

    Oh my! This is the cutest thing ever! I really wish my dog as more social so that I could dress her up and take her trick or treating!
