PetSmart® is spooking Halloween celebrations with new pet costumes, toys and treats

Pet parents can choose from Thrills & Chills mermaid costumes for small pets and costumes for dogs, as well as pumpkin chew toys and skull cave aquarium ornaments so that animals can join in the fun. PetSmart’s new Halloween collection has everything your pet needs, including costumes, toys and decorations to liven up Halloween parties.

This year, cats and dogs can transform into dinosaurs, sharks and spiders. A unicorn and a sloth highlight additional dog-exclusive costumes. There are also spooky-inspired collars and harnesses that are perfect for bringing your pet tricks or treats. Top Paw’s reflective LED collars and leashes can also help protect pets and their parents on Halloween night walks.

For the pet that’s less about dressing up and more about toys, families can choose from a variety of Halloween-themed toys, like a squeaky pumpkin or a monster arm. A haunted house cat scratching post and a sugar skull pet bed are also must-have ghostly decor items this season.

Small pets like guinea pigs can have fun with a range of cute and spooky costumes, including a mystical unicorn, a fearsomely adorable shark and even a pint-sized pineapple. Fish can also join in the celebration with a selection of tank ornaments like a snorkeling skeleton and jack-o’-lantern to add an appropriately festive touch to their aquatic abodes.

Pets can also participate in their own version of trick-or-treating by indulging in seasonal treats like bone dog treats filled with pumpkin spice or delicious dog-friendly cookies shaped like ghosts and of spiders.

“Treat Your Boo” Event with Pet Costume Contest

Pet parents are invited to PetSmart stores nationwide for a “Treat Your Boo” event on Saturday October 26 from noon to 2 p.m. local time.* Dogs can learn tricks for treats, and parents can fill a bag of treats for their pet, at PetSmart’s exclusive Trick or Treat stations. The party will include a costume contest with prizes for first, second and third place, as well as a certificate for social media bragging rights.

To make these social media posts really shine, stores will feature photos featuring Chance the mascot that pet parents can share with their followers by tagging #petsmartparties. For those who want to keep the Halloween pet party going, free yard signs will be available at the event to let neighbors know that dogs are invited into their homes to trick or treat on Halloween night.
