Tips For Trick or Treating With Pets
If you think trick or treating with your kids is fun, wait till you trick or treat with your dog. It’s a unique, fun experience you and your pet will enjoy. Start out by getting your dog in the spirit of Halloween with his own adorable dog costume or hat. Choose from a variety of costumes and hats in all sizes like our Panda Hat or Bat Hat. Both hats are stylish, comfortable, and sure to get admiring looks along your trick or treat route.
Want a costume versus a hat? Our Dragon Sweater features scales all the way down the back and eyes on the hoodie and is so cute, you won’t be able to stop admiring your pet. Our reversible Lady Bug/Bumblebee costume does double duty by providing two costume options in one affordable dog garment. You can check out our entire Halloween collection right here.
As much fun as it is to take your pet along, it’s also important to keep your dog and all the other trick or treaters safe. These tips will help you do exactly that:
If you’ll be out for a long time, bring along a few doggie treats and water. Dogs – especially puppies – have short attention spans, so be prepared to take him home if he gets bored, overtired, or overanxious.
Don’t let your dog eat chocolate or sugar-laden treats. Instead, bring a few of their normal treats along and remind your kids not to let the dog eat their candy.
The rush of children in festival costumes might be too much stimulation for your pet. Keep your dog on a short leash because he may be wary of, or frightened by, unfamiliar children and well-meaning adults who might want to pet him.
Not all kids have a pet in their home and your dog may unintentionally scare them. A short leash will solve the problem and you may want to hang back from house doors until they’re almost clear.
Our costumes will help your dog look great, and these tips will keep your dog safe and make sure the whole family has a great Halloween.
