While thinking about dressing up for your next party/holiday, make sure that your Shih Tzu is not left out. Like your family, your cute Shih Tzu is part of your everyday life. We believe that a celebration becomes complete only when you let your dog also join in the festivities. From superhero pooches to creepy canines to fiendishly fun costumes, it will look spectacular on your sweet four-legged member of the family.
There’s nothing more fun than having your furry friend joining in on the dress up fun. Getting your pooch costumed up is not only great for Halloween. There’s no limit to how much fun you can have with an assortment of dog costumes ready to go!
Taking a trip to visit family? Costume up! Canine fashion shows? All the better in costume! Taking poochie to the vet? Eh, the veterinarian might not enjoy working around your friend’s new fashion… but they’ll at least be entertained. The only limitation is your imagination (and how many treats you can carry)!
Let’s face it. Your Shih Tzu is probably more of a party animal than you’ll ever be ;). If it were up to him/her, (s)he’d be drinking punch straight from the bowl within the first five minutes of the party, followed by a run across the dance floor to chase that person dressed as a cat. That’s why you shouldn’t deny your Shih Tzu the pleasure of dressing up for the party/holiday, just like his master!
Fortunately for you, there is a myriad of great dog costumes for your cutie to choose from; there are nearly as many choices for them as there is for people. Whether you picture him as being out of this galaxy or even under the sea, there’s sure to be a cute theme that you’ll love as much as your dog does.
If your dog’s got the rhythm in his heart, then you can dress him up as one of the great musicians of the century, like Elvis or Michael Jackson.
If your dog is more of the superhero type, he can become Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman. He can even help you on some Ghostbusting missions in one of our Ghostbusters pet costumes. Superhero heroics are at an all-time high, so classic heroes are sure to jump-start your pooch’s crime-fighting career.
Re-imagine the Star Wars universe with one of our hilarious character costumes (just remember “Arf arf” translates to “Luke I am your father”). Go for a hilarious animal mash-up with any dog costume, or get them decked out for your favorite holiday in cute attire. Just remember if you want your dog to be Uncle Sam on the Fourth of July, to get him inside the house when those fireworks start going off!
Dog costumes have gone mainstream. So whatever his fancy is, we’re sure there will be something that will let your pooch get in touch with his inner party animal.

HOW TO DRESS YOUR SHIH TZU IN A DOG COSTUME
You might think that dressing up your Shih Tzu companion is going to be a real chore, but with these clever costumes, suiting them up is a breeze! Velcro fasteners and comfortable materials ensure a loose enough fit so that your dog can be totally immersed in their character, and still have the freedom of movement they’re used to.
If the costume has a headpiece, just slide their ears in, and use the Velcro fastener to secure it around their head. Dog costumes vary in fit and style, but many will just use the front legs as featured below. Just slide their paws through the sleeves and secure the costume around the torso. He’ll be ready for trick or treating, a costume party for dogs and humans, or just a quick photo opportunity!
