MUTT FAVORITES: Halloween Collection + Halloween Night Tips

Trick or Treat

BOO! Just as we are recovering from the summer heat, we jump right into ghosts and goblins! We love Halloween – not just for the scary stuff, but for costume-wearing, party-throwing and trick-or-treating fun! Depending on what event you and your pup are going to, you’ll need the goods. We’re a huge fan of hilariously fun costumes, as you can tell! For those that prefer to not dress up in a costume, grab a Halloween-themed bandana – they’re easy to take on and off and are festive enough to celebrate this spooky holiday. Halloween-themed toys are a fun addition for a dog that doesn’t enjoy wearing clothing at all!

Whatever type of Party-Animal you may have, safety is most important. Here are a few ways to ensure everyone has a great time:

  1. Nighttime visibility is key. You always want to know your dog’s whereabouts, especially when trick-or-treating. Use lighted or reflective collars, leashes or harnesses and make sure they are securely fastened – you never know if your pooch will get frightened by all the costumes!
  2. No candy or decorations for Bowser. Candy (especially chocolate) can be toxic to pets and decorations like fake spider webs or small favors could be a choking hazard to dogs and cats.
  3. If they don’t want to go out, let them stay at home. Some pets can be frightened or agitated by the unaccustomed sights and sounds of costume visitors. If this is the case, keep them in a quiet space away from trick-or-treaters. We recommend a room with their bed and a favorite toy!
  4. ID tags on collars is essential. With doors opening constantly on Halloween night, there’s multiple opportunities for your pet to run out. We recommend your furry friend wears a collar with an ID tag just in case of any accidental getaways!

We hope you have a happy and safe Halloween! ☺

It’s Almost Time for Trick-or-Treating! Is Your Pup Prepared?

Our Halloween
Boo-tique
is filled with costumes to suit all canine personalities! Your
four-legged friend could be a golfer, monkey, flapper, or even a tootsie roll,
to name a few. Halloween is just over a month away, and some styles are selling
fast, so act fast for the best selection. Costumes aren’t all we have in our boo-tique,
we also carry funny and festive toys, adorable accessories, and darling
Halloween dresses!

Halloween Bou-tique
The Halloween Treats Dog Dress was designed
specially for those furry fashionistas who are always looking fabulous! Featuring
an extra fluffy ruffled double layered underskirt, decorative trim and polka
dot ribbon details, it’s a sure head-turner. The equally adorable, festive and
feminine Ribbon Pumpkin Dog Dress is
also a great choice for furry fashionistas with a striped ruffled skirt,
puffed sleeves, embroidered pumpkins and ribbon details. Both are cute costume alternatives!

For the
male pups, or females that don’t want to wear a dress, we have the Jolly Roger Dog Sweater with a skull
and cross bones on the back, a trendy choice that can be worn again when
Halloween is over! The Halloween Argyle
Dog Bowtie
is also a cute choice for dapper doggies. And probably the
easiest, fun way to let your pup get dressed up for the holiday would be with our
Candy Corn and Dots or Bats Dog Bandanas, both reversible!
