Costumes for guinea pigs

See guinea pig files

Who has not thought about how fun it is to dress up your pet, be it a dog or a cat in a homemade costume, but ¿what if you have a guinea pig? Well, nothing, because you can also disguise it as long as you follow these instructions. The first is that you try to make sure that the costume does not cover your guinea pig's head completely, because they are very delicate and could breathe with difficulty. The next indication is to avoid the use of elastic bands, or thin and rounded rubber bands to fasten your guinea pig's costumes, since they tend to get entangled with their fur and then it is necessary to cut it. And the third indication is that if the costume has to be painted with some type of paint, it is better that it be special for pets or children, so that it cannot cause them any type of intolerance or allergic reaction..

  1. Get a mini rodent harness.
  2. Get a mini backpack with the pattern that you like the most. Normally these backpacks are sold to be used as purses, so it will not be very difficult to find them in an accessory store.
  3. Sew the backpack well at the top of the harness.
  4. Try not to let your guinea pig take off his costume.
