It’s that time of year again for spooky fun, costumes, and yummy treats! This year our doggy Halloween parties will be on Thursday, October 29, and Friday, October 30. We will be celebrating with the pups and taking all sorts of photos. Kira will be whipping up homemade puppy safe treats again, so let us know if your pup can’t have one of our treats. You are welcome to send a treat with your pup so they don’t miss out!
Not going to make it to daycare on those days? Here are some of the best ways you can celebrate Halloween at home with your pets!
Who doesn’t want to see their precious fur-baby dressed up in a cute costume for Halloween? Costumes are a great way to get in the spirit, but there are a few things to take into consideration before purchasing one.
- Make sure your dog is comfortable wearing a costume. If your dog or cat resists and struggles to get out of a costume, it may be a better idea to go with something more understated like a spooky bandana!
- If your pooch doesn’t mind a little Halloween costume fun, make sure you buy the correct size. You don’t want to be squeezing your loyal companion into a too-tight outfit!
Here are some of our favorite dog costumes this year modeled by our furry pals Weasley, Coco, and Charlie!
Halloween isn’t complete without plenty of yummy treats to go around! Follow these links to easy DIY recipes we’ll be using to celebrate this year:
The ever-popular Starbucks favorite with a dog-friendly twist!
These healthy treats feature nutritious pumpkin and oat as well as delicious peanut butter your dog won’t be able to resist!
Adorably shapeable, try cutting these into pumpkin or ghost shapes for an added Halloween touch.
Tricking for Treats!
Now that you’ve prepared some of our tasty treats, use them to train your dog to do a new trick.
- “Watch Me!” Prerequisite: Sit.
Useful for getting your pet’s attention. Hold a treat between eyebrows, give them a command, and reward your dog for holding eye contact.
- “Rollover” Prerequisite: Lay down.
Hold the treat in front of your pup’s nose and move it up over their head and to the other side of their nose in a circular motion.
- “Paw!” Prerequisite: Sit.
Give the command “Paw!” or “High five!” and gently lift your pup’s paw. Soon, they’ll do it on their own!
