We’ve got all the frights and delights you need for an epic Halloween with your pet.
Halloween doesn’t just revolve around you this year! Your pets are your family too, so it’s time to make them the star of the show with some cute, fun and unique dog costumes and cat costumes that will make you look like the coolest pet owner in the neighborhood. Here are some ideas on what to do with your furry friends this Halloween.
Halloween Costumes for Dogs
Dressing up your dog in a Halloween costume is a lot of fun, but it can also be challenging. There are many different sizes, shapes, colors, and costumes that you have to choose from. Making sure that you get the right size is important because it will make your dog more comfortable and he will be able to move more easily. The last thing you want is for your dog to be too tight or too loose on his body, so take measurements before buying. When selecting a costume, think about what type of personality your pet has and pick one accordingly. If they are an outgoing animal with lots of energy, then go with something like this British Style Dog Costume or this Lion Costume with Mane & Tail while if they’re shy and reserved then try something like this Princess Dress Dog Dress or this Lion Animal Suit. You could even dress them up as their favorite animal by picking out one of these Animal Print Outfit options.

Hide the Candy: The No. 1 pet hazard this spooky season? Halloween candy. It’s a sweet treat for you, but it’s a whole package of bad ideas for your pet, from cellophane and candy wrappers that can cause gastrointestinal blockage to sweeteners like xylitol and other ingredients that can make your pet sick. Make sure to keep any trick-or-treat bags far out of your pet’s reach.
Keep Your Pet Inside: Many pets go missing on and around Halloween each year, and it’s easy to understand why: The front door opening to trick-or-treaters all night long presents a tempting opportunity for pets to sneak out. Keep pets in a safe, comfortable and, most importantly, inescapable area during trick-or-treat hours, as well as during any Halloween parties you’re hosting where people will be coming and going.
