Dexter isn't really a clothes wearing kind of dog. He tends to bite at anything other than a collar or a harness, so i wanted to make him something simple for Halloween. This Kitty Shark Week Costume 'ible was my inspiration. I decided to use a reflective harness since  some parents take the dog along Trick-Or-Treating with the kiddies.

Step 1: Tools & Supplies

You will need 2 pieces of grey felt, a marker, scissors, a hot glue gun, a piece of cardboard, a piece of paper and a dog harness. You can usually get a dog harness at the dollar store. I got mine for $3
<p>That's awesome! I'm going to take this a step further - my hubby and I and our dogs are heavily involved in the sport of dock diving here in Canada. At funday competitions, people often put their pets in costumes that are safe for them to swim in. I've never been a huge fan as I worry about the safety of that, but this one could easily work without any risk. I'll just have to make it out of waterproof material is all ;)</p><p>Great idea - thanks for sharing! :D</p>

I think I may have to try this for my weimaraner pup:) Thanks for the great instructable
Awesome! And what's best (I don't know much about animals but), it shouldn't bother your dog since he is probably used to wearing a harness!
You are right about the harness part, he has worn one a few times &amp; it's no biggie. However, Dexter was still *very* interested in what was on his back. If spinning was an Olympic sport, he would have won the gold medal. It took a few minutes, but eventually he settled down.
