Howl-oween Tricks and Treats for Your Furry Goblin

Dog Halloween in Ghost

Halloween is almost here! With a little planning, you can make sure your dog has a paw-sitively delightful time celebrating with you. From cute costumes to homemade treats, your canine companion can be an integral part of the Halloween magic. Read below to get ready for a spooky and tail-wagging good time this Howl-oween!

Halloween Activities for Your Canine Capers

Engaging your dog in Halloween activities can make the holiday even more enjoyable for both of you. Here are a few ideas:

  • Consider participating in a doggie costume contest (like the 6th Annual BNB Doggie Halloween Contest!) or find a local kids’ costume parade for you and your pup to join.

  • Fit in your daily dog walk on Halloween evening by taking her along with you for trick-or-treating. It’s an excellent way for her to socialize and be part of the festivities. Just be sure to keep your pup on a leash and head home if the extra spookiness gets to be overwhelming.

  • Visit a pumpkin patch with your dog and take some adorable photos among the pumpkins.

  • Enjoy a fall hike with your furry friend, taking in the beautiful autumn scenery (sounds like another great photo op!).

Tasty Treats for Your Furry Goblin

Of course, Halloween wouldn’t be the same without delicious treats. You can make this holiday extra special for your dog with homemade, pet-friendly goodies:

  • Mummy Munchies: Create mummy-themed dog treats by wrapping dog-friendly biscuits or meat treats in strips of cheese.

  • Candy Corn Pupsicles: Freeze yogurt and pumpkin puree in layers to mimic candy corn, perfect for a chilly treat.

Finally, remember that chocolate can be a very real danger for your dog, so keep a watchful eye on your pups while collecting all those delicious treats for yourself!
