Pets in their adorable costumes will be joining their families as they go in search of treats. “Over half (54%) of pet parents intend to take their costumed companions trick-or-treating. A remarkable 70% of pet parents will have their dogs help greet trick-or-treaters at their own home and distribute Halloween candy at the door,” states Rover.

Remember that not all pets enjoy dressing up or having strangers approach their home. The costume should not restrict movement and should be removed at the first sign of distress by your pet. Do what is best for your pet and keep them away from the candy bowl.

Have a Happy Halloween!
