It’s also the perfect time to pick out a few adorable Halloween-themed toys for your furry family members!

If you’re looking for fun ways to celebrate the spooky season with your cat or dog this year, look no further! We’re bringing you our favorite COVID-safe halloween activities to try with your pet as well as our top 10 Halloween dog toys and cat toys!

Celebrate Halloween Safely with Your Furry Friend

Sadly, a lot of our favorite halloween parties, events, and traditions are likely not to go ahead this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the risks associated with gathering or interacting with large groups. Make the best of it by planning to spend the creepiest night of the year at home or out for a walk or playdate in the park with your four-legged pal!

Here are a few safe and fun halloween ideas to try with your cat or dog:

  • Dress your pet up in a cute halloween costume that doesn’t restrict their movement or cause them any distress. Try this adorable trick-or-treat bow tie from Huxley & Kent! 
  • It’s the one night of the year you can get away with eating whatever you want, so why not give your dog or cat a few extra treats as well? Just make sure you keep human candy wrappers at a safe distance.
  • Post about your night in with your pet on social media, and watch all the likes and heart emojis roll in!
