Halloween is that extra special holiday where ghoulies, ghosts and goblins come out to beg for food door to door. On paper, it seems strange that we sanction this, but it really is quite a spooky good time. In fact, it’s so much fun, many of us aren’t satisfied with just our own participation, we rope the dog or cat into the act too.

Lots of furry Frankensteins actually enjoy the attention they get when their guardians include them in the costume fun, or at the very least they’re completely ambivalent. Just make sure to keep your little buddy’s disposition in mind before dressing him or her up for that pet costume parade. Some pets would be far more stressed out to be included than they would if you’d let them sit this one out.

If you feel like Fluffy would truly dig the monster mash, always make sure that costumes are comfortable with no toxic paints or materials and they allow your pet to move freely. Keeping your companion’s needs in mind, they can have a great time at the Halloween festivities. Especially if they’re dressed up in one of these bone-chilling get ups!

I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never ever possibly destroy us.


There are far better treats for dogs than bones. As far as costumes go, however…

The only way this could be cuter is if Johnny Depp was in the picture too.
