Q ) Do I have to buy a dog sweater?
A ) NO!! Buy a small sweater to “fit” your dog, cut the sleeves to fit & put it over your dog’s head backwards so we can see the design on its back. Altering sweaters for dogs is EASY! Get creative.
Q ) But my dog is REALLY little – where do I get a sweater?
A ) Baby clothes sections!
Q ) Where do I get a sweater for my dog or myself?
A ) Go to Goodwill, The Salvation Army Store or even ebay ASAP! Supplies start dwindling this time of year!
Q ) What if I can’t find one?
A ) Make your own! Find a winter ski-type sweater, find some fun embellishments at any craft store and glue or sew them on! Make ’em goofy.
Q ) Can my dog get hurt wearing a sweater?
A ) Yes – safety is paramount! Be sure the sweater fits your dog well. Get them used to wearing the sweater before the event by putting it on and taking it off of them several times a day for just a minute or two. Work up to keeping it on them longer and longer each time (reward immediately with yummy, healthy, treats every step of the way!)
Q ) Can my cat or bunny come to the party?
A ) Um…. No… We are sorry but due to the nature of the event and with the attendance of lots of dogs who may not like cats or REALLY like bunnies too much, cats and bunnies (and other small non-dog animals) in ugly sweaters will not be invited to attend… >”..”< but we’d love to see your pictures!!
We hope to see y’all there!
