What to Wear
Costumes are a fun way to celebrate the Purina Pet Parade. When choosing a costume for your pet, please keep the following in mind:
Though encouraged, costumes are not required for your pet to walk in the parade.
Avoid unsafe/uncomfortable costumes that could cause your pet to overheat.
Pick an easy-on, easy-off outfit that doesn’t constrict the head and neck.
No face/full-head coverings.
