Board Certified Behaviorist Lisa Radosta DVM, DACVB notes to identify whether your dog or cat has a love or hate relationship with a costume, watch his body language. If his ears are back, his head and tail are down, his pupils are dilated, and he’s pawing at it to get it off, he’s not having a good time. Let him wear his birthday suit. Try costumes on well in advance of the holiday to make sure they fit and are fun for the pet.
