Throughout the year, many Americans celebrate holidays that hold significant meanings. While they celebrate Christmas and Halloween, Americans also have their unique festivities such as Thanksgiving and Memorial Day.
However, since most American celebrations can be chaotic, it can be easy for one to neglect their pets amid the whirlwind of parties, relatives, and last-minute shopping.

Dressing up for the holidays is a fun tradition -- for us humans, at least. Fortunately, there are several ways to tell if your furry friend doesn't like putting on animal costumes.
It's important to test whether your furry friend is comfortable wearing a costume or not. They might look good in pictures, but they could also feel stressed and anxious if you don't check with them first.
Of course, your furry friend will look adorable in a costume, but it's important to make sure that they enjoy it. So, do a test run before the actual holiday.
If your dog shows irritation or discomfort, remove the costume and try another day. On the next try, watch for signs of discomfort. These include rolling their eyes back, folding their ears or scratching at the costume's fabric.
Choose holiday costumes that are easy to put on and take off. It shouldn't be too tight that your dog has to squeeze into, or too loose that they might trip or snag it somewhere.
Before buying a costume, try putting on a T-shirt on your dog first. Observe their body language to see how they will react to the garment. If they try to scratch it, shake their body vigorously, run around, or tuck in their tails, then they might not be happy with it.
As much as possible, don't get a costume that will obstruct your dog's vision. Aside from being dangerous, dogs get stressed if they can't see anything around them. Make sure that their eyes aren't covered with the costume you choose.
