Dogs have different tolerance levels for wearing clothes, so don’t get too set on debuting your new pup all decked out in an elaborate costume. And beware of costumes that have bells or any other items that could be chewed off and swallowed. You don’t want to end your puppy shower with a trip to the emergency clinic.
