Howl-O-Ween: How to Celebrate Halloween as a Fur Parent

  |     |   Events, Neighborhood Guide, Outdoor Activities, Pets

Is there anything better than being a pet owner during the fall? From watching them jump in leaves as the season changes to dressing them up in adorable costumes for Halloween, the joy we get from our dogs is unrivaled. We love seeing your furry friends around our community, and it’s even better when they’re dressed up in costumes! Here are some costume ideas for Fido, and fun events nearby to show off their costumes:

Paw-dorable Costumes:

Too Cute To Eat

Food never fails! Dress your pooch up as your favorite food, they’ll be too cute to eat! Whether you love pizza, prefer sushi, indulge on sweet fruit, or want to reminisce on the classic Chicago hotdogs, there really is a costume for every appetite! Just don’t let others gobble up your adorably dressed pup.

Alter-Ego Animals

Does your pup have an alter-ego? If they were another animal, what would they be? Show the world your pup’s true colors by dressing them up as another animal. Maybe they’d be a dragon, or a llama, or a shark, or maybe even a unicorn! The options are endless for dressing your four-legged friend up as another animal, let their true colors shine.

Spooktacular Classics

Are you more of the spooky type? Dress your furball up as any of the true Halloween classics! Trick-or-treat your pup to a spooktacular costume by dressing them up as a spider, a skeleton, a pumpkin, or as Frankenstein. Even in their spooky costumes, your pooch is sure to be too cute to be scary. 

Once you’ve picked out the perfect costume for your four-legged friend, show them off at a fun event!
