It’s been over a year since we brought you porch puppies. We think it’s high time we included your furry family members in the holiday fun. Don’t leave man’s best friend out of your Halloween celebrations.

Pumpkins + puppies = winning combination

Is it really Halloween without pumpkins? Show the neighborhood who the best boy is with these pumpkin puppies.

We’ve waited … ahem … a long time to share this one. Happy Halloweiner!

 

Keep safety in mind when lighting your pumpkins with pups around. Unlike in this video, use a battery-powered light instead of a candle. Fire and wagging tails don’t mix.

Prepare a costume for the special occasion

Not all animals love to put on costumes, so pay attention to your pet’s behavior. If they aren’t enjoying it, don’t force them to dress up, no matter how cute they might look. But if they’re feeling the holiday spirit as much as you are, try some of these favorites.

Simple yet effective and so cute, it’s scary.

 

Of course, we can’t forget our feline friends.

Keep them safe

Remember that not all animals love Halloween. Trick-or-treaters constantly ringing the doorbell can send them into a tizzy, and opening the door frequently can tempt them to make a run for it. Make sure they’re secured in the house, maybe in a spare room or at least on a leash, to keep them safe.

 

There’s always plenty of tasty treats around at holiday time, too, and not all of them are meant for pets. Keep chocolate out of reach and be aware of other human foods that are ghoulish on your puppy’s tummy. If you want to give them a holiday snack, try some pumpkin dog treats that are both tasty and healthy.

 

The holidays, even the spooky ones, should be fun for everyone. Start by making your home safe for Halloween so you can focus on the festivities. And be sure to share your best Halloween pet photos with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, too. We really couldn’t be more serious about that.
