And the last thing to remember is make sure their costume allows them to go potty without any problem.
Dress yourself up, too!

That way you can all have fun in dressing up for the Halloween. You can either dress up being a villain and your pet be the hero for the day or whatever idea you have in mind.
After dressing up or before dressing up, it would be very nice to have a costume party. Whether have the costume party in your place or with your friend’s place. As long as you, your family and friends don’t disturb other people and neighbors then you can party all you want. Don’t forget to have lots of tasty treats for your beloved pets. Show off your pet’s tricks at the party. This will keep the party alive for your pets and for you and your friends as well.
Bake some treats for your pet
If partying and wearing costume is not your thing, another great way to celebrate and have fun during Halloween is to bake something for your beloved furry friend. Whether it is a cake or a cookie or some cupcakes, as long as the ingredients are safe for your pet then everything will be alright. If you don’t know how to bake, there are a lot of recipes in the internet that are pet friendly in which both you and your pet can enjoy chowing.
Hide and seek those treats
If you have a dog as a pet, one way to have fun with them during Halloween is by hiding some treats around the dog house and encouraging them to look for them. You can also hide and let your find you and reward your dog some treats if he can find you.
Take your pet on a trick-or- treat
While the children are busy trick or treating around the neighborhood. You can bring your pet outside the house while on their costume and go trick or treating as well. Just be careful around chocolate treats if you got a pet dog with you. Be careful with other foods that are not safe for your pet. Just cross your fingers that your neighbor or your friends got some treats that your pet can enjoy.

Some fun time alone

Just be sure that your pet is safe within that area and comfortable with food and water too. And don’t forget to leave treats as well.
Give your pet a gift
