It’s that time of the year again - everyone is getting ready for Halloween! We love this season with pumpkin carving, cider, and fun outfits.

With the most excitement happening on Halloween, where neighborhood children dress as goblins, princesses, and football players, you can’t leave your dog out of the festivities! Creating a memorable Halloween evening is great fun for the entire family.

So, for those of you taking your dog along with you, there are a few things to consider. Here’s how to get your dog ready for a night of trick or treating.


Well, while dog’s don’t really need to get dressed up - they are cute in or out of a costume - it is a lot of fun! For dog costumes, take the following into consideration:

  • Use Color - dark costumes are hard to see, and you don’t want your pooch to get accidentally bumped by candy-seeking kiddos.
  • Clearance - make sure that your dog can go to the bathroom, both #1 and #2, as you don’t want any accidents.
  • Less Is More - things that tie, snap on, or are difficult to get in or out of can cause a bit of frustration for both you and your pup. So keep it simple.

Tip: Try an 80’s aerobics queen outfit! Simply pair our Dog Leggings with a headband and Fido is all set for a night of fun. And your dog will stay clean - thanks to our Leggings!

Trick or Treat Tricks

Drop off a few dog treats to some of your neighbors. This will help them with other dogs, and provide your dog with a goodie when you show up. Make sure your dog knows a few tricks to get the goodies! Some fun ones are:

  • Sit and Shake Paw
  • Beg
  • Speak

Carry Along Bag

Pack a little bag to take with you. Last thing you want to have happen is to return to the house because you forgot something that your pup needs. Your bag should include:

  • Pet waste bags
  • Treats
  • Water
  • Collapsible drinking bowl

You’re All Set for A Fun Halloween

Now you know how to get your dog ready for a night of trick or treating - you are all set for Halloween! Dogs, just like us, love the fun of a night walking around and meeting and greeting neighbors. We rejoice in dog-lovers like us who include their dogs in family affairs like holidays.

Oh, and send us pics of your dog in his/her Halloween outfit and we’ll post it in our Instagram feed!
