Spooktacular fun for pets
(NC) The creativity of Halloween makes it a great time for the whole family to spend together, including your pet. If you would like a few ideas this year, leading retailer, PetSmart, outlines some resourceful ways to let your four-legged family member join in on the festivities:
Lions, Tigers and Bears: The only thing cuter than a dog or cat, is one in costume. With lovable options from Martha Stewart Pets, Disney and Bret Michaels, today's pet parent has a wide variety of costumes to choose from. A popular trend is to have a pet dressed in a themed costume with the family. Is your kid going out as Winnie the Pooh? Why not have the dog join them as Tigger. And costumes aren't limited to cats or dogs either. This year, PetSmart is offering ghoulish Halloween costumes for guinea pigs.
Gone Fishin': Don't forget the fish. Why not celebrate with some themed ornaments in the aquarium? Decorating the household aquarium can be a gratifying activity and adds even more décor to your home.
Trick or Treat: Dogs get excited over a tasty treat just as much as the kids. You can find a wide selection of biscuit treats decorated for the season, like Boo bars.
Frightful Fun with Toys: It's important for pets to have a few toys for exercise and entertainment. It has even been noted that a good toy can act as a “security blanket” for a pet, affecting their mood positively. Pet toy designers like Martha Stewart Pets, Disney and Bret Michaels have created a variety of fun, themed toys for the family pet.
Costumes, toys and more ideas can be found at PetSmart or www.petsmart.com.
