These cute matching dogs and owner costumes may secure a win in a costume contest, but you still need to plan for Halloween night. If you’re thinking of pairing up with your canine best friend in the spooky festivities this year, here are some trick-or-treat etiquette you should keep in mind.
Plan your Howl-oween Route
Your trick-or-treat route should be long enough for everyone to have fun, but short enough that you don’t exhaust your kids or your dog.
Encounters along the way
Even friendly and calm pets can become scared or anxious, especially if you are knocking on strangers’ doors. Your hosts might have a dog that’s not thrilled to find a strange animal—even one dressed as a bumblebee or a cute ballerina—on his porch. So be respectful, and if necessary, wait with your pet at the curb, while your kids collect their sweets.
Don't forget the Necessities
Be sure to bring water for your buddy! Also, bring along some dog treats let'em have a yummy snack. Since any walk means “time to do your business” for dogs, don’t forget a cleanup bag.
Get the right size! While our Walkee Paws leggings are adjustable to find the perfect fit, add-on accessories should be measured to make sure they’re comfortable enough for a night of fun. Your fur-baby should be able to breathe and see easily, he should have full mobility of all his limbs, and the costume should be able to accommodate potty breaks.
NO to Chocolates! Be sure your pet doesn’t have access to the sweets you plan to hand out or the ones you bring home. A homemade dog treat or his favorite chew toy should resolve any FOMO (feelings of missing out) that your buddy might experience.
