This year Halloween is out… and HOWL-o-ween is in!
Your kids are probably too hopped up on sugar as it is, so this year make sure that your dog has the best costume in the house.
Actually, we’re going to help you with that by giving away the Halloween costume of your (and your dog’s) choice from our friends at PetSmart.
Does Your Dog Need A Halloween Costume?
According to a recent PetSmart survey, nearly 20 million pets will be sporting a Halloween costume this year.
They go on to say:
Pets are like our children, and pet parents love to include their pets in the fun of dressing up for Halloween … Our unique selection of costumes this year are a combination of returning favorites, like the cow and bumble bee, and some great new choices, like the firedog, dragon and lion. Source
But I must admit, I’m a little partial to the Top Paw Devil costume. All of this doggone fun won’t break the bank either, since all dog Halloween costumes at PetSmart are available for less than $20.
The good news is… You could win one for FREE!
Don’t worry if you’re thinking, "My dog would never wear a Halloween costume." We’ve got a few good tips to make sure that they do.
How To Win A Halloween Costume For Your Dog
Entering to win this dog Halloween contest couldn’t be easier. All you have to do is:
- Leave a comment on this post telling us about your favorite way to get your dog involved in the Halloween festivities.
- or -
- Become a fan of The Fun Times Guide to Dogs on Facebook and post a picture of your dog dressed up in their Halloween costume (this year’s or a past year) on our wall.
Of course, if you do both of those things, it will double your chances to win!
Now for the boring stuff…
- Must be 18+ to enter
- Winner will be chosen randomly using random.org
- Mindless and incoherent comments will NOT be counted as valid entries

Good luck. We cannot wait to see and hear about all of the creative ways you help your dogs enjoy HOWL-o-ween!
