Dressing up your pet is a lovely gesture that you can offer to it. It is such a pleasure to see a pet in cute apparel. Like his master, you have to be careful about his comfort and safety above all. A minor fault of yours may be serious for him. So, don’t allow any negligence when dressing up your pet.
Begin The Preparation For Dressing Up Your Pet Ahead Of Time
Like humans, they too have personalities and preferences that we have to understand. It will not be right to force him to put on an outfit because I want it. There must be a bonding of love between you two. Approach him with love and affection. Don’t lose patience if he responds negatively. The time that you will require varies from one animal to another.
How Can You Convince Him?
- Make him familiar with the dress. Allow him to sniff it first. Gradually he will understand that this apparel is for him.
- Lay the outfit on its back so that he can feel the texture of the material. And with his reaction, you will understand whether he likes it or not.
- Every time he responds affirmatively during the dress-up session, appreciate him and reward him. It will help to build his confidence in this new arena.
Follow The Basic Safety Rules While Dressing Up Your Pet
As he already has a fur coat on their body, choose apparel that is light, and he does not get overheated while putting the dress on.
Also, keep in mind that the outfit should be such that it does not create any hindrances while your furry friend will be running around.
The Apparel Selection Is Crucial
The dress should adequately fit into his body. It should be neither too tight, nor too loose. It should be such that he can comfortably sit, walk, run, go to the washroom. It will neither hug the body firmly nor dragging around the floor.
The fabric should not have any chemicals or aroma. These might be harmful to your pet’s health.
The chewable add on like buttons should be as low as possible. Your furry baby may chew it and swallow down, which is not safe for his health.
Watch On Your Pet’s Body Language
Your furry baby may look a cutie pie in the new dress, but his comfort is the top priority. Flat ears, round eyes, or lowered head are the signs of distress. The happiness of your pet is of utter importance. Don’t ever compel him to get into the outfit, if he does not feel comfortable in it.
Don’t Overwhelm Your Pet
A few minutes is enough to click some snaps of your furry mate dressed up cutely. If a lot of people want to interact with him, he might be irritated. If you find that he is overwhelmed in the new environment, finish the photo session as soon as possible and take him back to his comfort zone.
