Updated August 2019

On a budget this year and looking for some DIY Halloween costume inspiration? We've had a ton of fun over the last few years dressing up our dachshund Django and have you covered!

Don't forget to follow Django on Instagram and/or Facebook and tag #djangothegent when you post! We'd love to see your photos and leave a bunch of likes and comments on your page :)

1. "Boo."

What you need:

What to do:

  • Cut a hole large enough for you're dog's snout in the upper corner of the pillow case. Cut two holes for eyes. Cut diagonally back and forth across the pillow case bottom. Take a photo and post on Instagram or Facebook and tag @djangothegent
2. "Mummy, we're all outta toilet paper"

What you need:

  • Large roll of cotton gauze (or toilet paper if you want the costume to fall apart immediately)
  • A very, very patient dog

What to do:

  • If we have to tell you what to do, this costume isn't for you.
3. "Leggo my Eggo, mouth breather" - Eleven from Stranger Things

What you need for this Stranger Things inspired Eleven doggy costume:

  • Blond wig
  • Any pale pink shirt or dress that fits your dog (we were creative with Mom's spaghetti strap crop top from Free People)  
  • White collar OR paper and string
  • Eggos
  • Optional: navy blue jacket that fits your dog

What to do:

  • Dress your dog in the pink shirt or dress. If you don't have a white collar, simply cut a collar-shape out of a piece of white paper. Tape two strings at the ends so you can easily hang it around your dog's neck, over the pink outfit. Place the Eggos near your dog. Put the wig on last and snap a photo.
4. "Harry Potter & The Sorcerer's Bone" 

What you need:

What to do:

  • Wrap the scarf around your dog. Place glasses on your dog's head. Seriously do we need to explain everything to you?

What to do:

  • Gently place the Christmas tree lights around your dog
8. "Beanie Babies"

What you need:

  • A printed copy of the Ty company logo (a red heart with the lower-case letters) OR  DIY with white paper and a red marker
  • Scissors, hole-puncher
  • Cardboard
  • Glue or tape
  • String

What to do:

  • Print in color 2 copies of the Ty company logo (ink above) and cut out the red heart logo with scissors. Trace the heart-shaped company logo on a piece of cardboard, then use scissors to cut the cardboard into the same heart shape. Use glue or tape to attach the Ty logo to the cardboard. Use your hole puncher to punch a hole in the top center of the Ty cardboard logo, then use string to hang it loosely around your pup's neck. Congratulations, you now have the cutest and most valuable Beanie Baby.

DJANGO Dog Blog Raised Right Fresh Dog Food Review - djangobrand.com
Raised Right Fresh Dog Food Review | Our Experience With The Low-Carb and Home Cooked-Style Dog Food Subscription Service

December 21, 2021

While searching for high-quality, nutrient-rich dog food for our 14 lb long-haired dachshund Django, we (Mike and Steph) have tried almost every fresh dog food delivery service on the market. We prefer dog food brands that do not have artificial flavors, fillers, or preservatives. They also should be made with high-quality animal proteins and vitamin-packed fruits and veggies.

After discovering Raised Right earlier this year, we have been layering it on top of his small breed adult dry dog food. We feel great about feeding Django Raised Right because it is made with single-source animal protein, omega 3-rich oils, non-GMO herbs, and superfoods. Raised Right has also teamed up with carbonfund.org to combat climate change by reducing its carbon footprint. That is a cause we can support because our dog accessories and apparel small business, DJANGO, was built to give back to the environment.

Here is an unbiased and comprehensive review of Raised Right’s homestyle, human-grade fresh dog food. All opinions are based on our personal experience feeding Raised Right to our celebrity wiener dog Django.

Django Dog Blog - Top 15 CBD Dog Chews and Hemp Treats
CBD Dog Chews and Treats: 15 All-Natural Mouthwatering Hemp Products That Will Help Soothe Your Dog's Anxiety and Pain

December 15, 2021

CBD oil is a popular natural remedy used to treat common canine health issues, including diabetes, heart disease, and multiple sclerosis, in humans. Because your dog has an endocannabinoid system, CBD dog treats can help him with health issues like anxiety, inflammation, nausea, and joint pain.

CBD dog treats, also called hemp dog treats and dog relaxants, are specially designed with your pup’s size and weight in mind. Smaller dog breeds like French bulldogs or Welsh Pembroke corgis will need a lower dose of CBD than larger dog breeds like collies and Labrador retrievers.

In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we list 15 of our favorite CBD dog treats and chews on Amazon. They not only come in dog-approved flavors but are also packed with powerhouse ingredients that are scientifically proven to reduce pain and anxiety.

Doggy Daycare: What To Expect, How Much It Costs, and Which Type of Dog Boarding Is Best for Your Pup

December 08, 2021

There are a lot of reasons you might want to put your dog in daycare. If you have an unpredictable schedule or work long hours, you may have to leave your dog at home for large chunks of time. Maybe your puppy is hyperactive and needs more hands-on attention and stimulation throughout the day. Perhaps you have a dog that has separation anxiety, and he needs more opportunities to socialize with other pups and learn to play without you around. Doggy daycare can provide dogs with exercise, playtime, mental stimulation, and, if applicable, special care.

But what exactly is doggy daycare, and what type of doggy daycare is best? Do doggy daycare centers have health and vaccination requirements? How do you find a reputable doggy daycare in your area, and how much does it cost? Will your dog thrive in daycare?

Here is what you need to know before you enroll your dog in daycare.
