Is any excuse for fancy dress a good enough excuse for you?

Then why not get your Labrador in on the fun?

This Christmas, decorating the house just isn’t enough. Go one festive step further, and decorate the dog as well!

We have been enjoying looking at all the fun options there are available at the moment, and have picked out our five favourites.

When you have picked out and received your costume, help your Lab to try them on nice and gently. If he isn’t impressed, then don’t push it.

Remember, it’s only fun for you, if it’s fun for him too!
