Woofs! It’s time for Spooktacular Month! According to a recent Petco survey Pet Passionaries Research Panel (July 2015), “the trend for pets to participate in Halloween festivities has continued to climb, with 50 percent of respondents noting that their pet will participate in Halloween this year, which is up 11 percent from past years. Of these pet parents, 84 percent noted that their dog will be the pet joining in on the trick-or-treat fun.”
Our friends from Petco asked us to share some of their Spooktacular Halloween costumes and events (in-store and on-line).
Do you want your dog to be the center of attention? Consider Petco’s Halloween Taco Dog Costume.
Are you a fanatic Star Wars pet parent? How about Petco’s Star Wars Halloween Ewok Dog Costume.
Not all dogs enjoy being dressed up. Instead, pamper your dogs with new toys and tasty treats. Consider Petco’s Halloween Candy Corns on a Rope Dog Toy. This toy will satisfy your dog’s chewing needs and encourages exercise. For an irresistible tasty treat, try the pawlicious blend of pumpkin, cinnamon and cloves found in Petco’s Treat Bar Bulk Pumpkin & Spice Dog Treats.
