Halloween is almost here. If you’re a certain type of pet owner, this means you will soon be putting together the silliest and most humiliating pet costume imaginable. Pet products retailer Petco wants to help.

According to the National Retail Federation’s 2017 Halloween Spending Survey, 179 million Americans will partake in Halloween festivities with 16 percent planning to dress pets in costume.

Petco has these people covered with costume contests leading up to the big holiday and an assortment of costumes and accessories now available online and in stores nationwide at Petco’s “Bootique”.

To help pet parents get their furry friends ready for trick-or-treating, Petco has introduced a collection of spooky and hilarious Halloween costumes – many of which have been recognized by the National Retail Federation as this season’s most popular for pets.

According to the survey, 10 percent of pet lovers will dress their animal in a pumpkin costume, while seven percent will dress their cat or dog as a hot dog and four percent as a lion or pirate.

Other costumes that make the list include a bumblebee and witch.

Pet parents looking to go beyond the costume are in luck, as Petco also offers a wide selection of Halloween-themed toys for a ghoulish good time, such as the Bootique Skeleton Ring Dog Toy, Bootique Bat Stick Dog Toy and Bootique Trio Candy Corn Rope Dog Toy.

The company is planning a month’s worth of special events. Find out more at
