Dog, dog, dog, qiang! With Chinese New Year just around the corner, many pawrents are probably getting their pets’ festive costumes ready. However, not all furkids are comfortable with them, regardless of how adorable they look. So if you're planning to dress your furkid up this Chinese New Year, here’re three ways to ensure that the experience is a positive one.

Finding the Right Costume Dressing Up for CNY? Here’s a Guide to Introducing Costumes to Your PetSource: news.cn

When searching for a costume, it’s important to look for one that’s made of stretchy material as this allows you to easily slip the costume on and off your pet. At the same time, the stretchability will eliminate feelings of discomfort and restriction.

Also, do note that costumes fashioned from synthetic fibres such as polyester may trap heat, an unsuitable choice especially on our sunny island.

Costume Introduction

Once you’ve decided on the costume, its’ recommended to purchase it at least a week or two prior to the festive season as this will allow you ample time to introduce the costume to your pet.

For starters, place the costume near your pet before putting them in contact (opt to first drape the costume around your pet before actually slipping it on). Once your pet has grown accustomed to the costume, there shouldn’t be issues putting it on your pet. Remember to award treats to your pet for good behaviour, as this will help its positive association with the costume.

Despite successfully dressing your pet up, be sure to look out for signs of stress such as a tucked tail or low ears. If your pet continues to show discomfort, you may wish to rethink outfitting it for the festivities. While placing your furkid in these adorable costumes will make for memorable photographs or a good laugh, your pet’s comfort and safety should be your priority.
