4 Things to Keep in Mind When Planning a Pooch-Friendly Halloween Party

4 Things to Keep in Mind When Planning a Pooch-Friendly Halloween Party

With fall creeping around the corner it is time to start getting festive. What better way to start the holiday season than to plan an exciting Halloween party.

Why should your pet miss out on this thrilling party opportunity? Halloween is the best time for pet parents to dress up with their pets and enjoy the company of other pet parents. If you are looking to plan a Halloween party for your pet and their friends here are a bunch of things you need to pull off a successful Halloween party.

Decorations

The easiest part of planning a Halloween party is the fact that you do not need to think up a theme for the party. Halloween is the theme. Shopping for Halloween decoration is an easy task. Stores start stocking Halloween decorations from the beginning of October.

If you do not want to spend too much money behind decorations you can simply look for DIY ideas. DIY Halloween decorations is an opportunity for you to up-cycle things that you would have thrown away.

While Halloween is all about the scares, a pet-friendly one should not be so. You do not want your guests spooked and in discomfort. According to pet health advice by vets, it’s best to avoid decorations that make sounds or have flashy lights.

Venue

You do not want to have a haunted house for a pet-friendly party. When inviting pets to a party remember that space is important. Cooping your guests indoors can be disastrous.

If you have a big backyard then go ahead and plan your party there. You can collaborate with other pet parents and plan it in someone else’s backyard. If no pet parent has an available space then you can even have it in your local dog park. No matter where you choose to have your party make sure you have the permission to host a party at that venue.

Day or Night

Halloween parties are held mostly at night. But when having a pet Halloween party, it is best to have it in the day. During daytime, the pets are more likely to be more active and relaxed. At night you might have to use a lot of lighting that can disturb the pets.

Pet parents also might have plans for the evening on Halloween.

During the daytime, you can even have a ton of activities that you cannot at night. You can have games and costume contests where pets and pet parents can participate. You can buy discount pet items and hand them out as prizes for the pets.

Food

You cannot let your guests go home hungry. Have a potluck to take the pressure off of your back. Ask your guests to contribute by bringing homemade Halloween themed food which is pet-friendly. Make sure that the food that is pet safe  is marked and separated from the food that is meant for people. You do not want your guests to end up at the vet after consuming something that is poisonous to them.
