Use Your Pet as a Halloween Prop

October 15, 2008

Man Dressed as Pirate with Parrot on ShoulderThis year we got a puppy so he'll be going trick or treating with our 12 year old daughter. Good opportunity for puppy to meet all the neighbors. Our daughter is going dressed up as a football player and the puppy will be her football! We found all of my daughter's items at Goodwill and I bought some brown and white felt to make puppy into a "football." Just a football shape draped over his back and noosed around his neck and back legs. Should be cute!

One year I dressed as a witch to answer the door and give out treats. I dressed my cocker spaniel in an orange Halloween shirt and hat and he answered the door with me. I think yours was a much better idea, though. I think pets make a cute addition.

My Honey is going to be a tiger , he is
a poo mix. I have been practicing so I slip
the ears, tail and costume on while he is sleeping
and he seems ok with it all.

I realize these posts are 10 years old, but I think this is a terrible idea. Pets (especially young ones, ie: puppies) can be totally freaked out and traumatized by Halloween traditions like costumes, loud noises (fire crackers), and all the other strange and unfamiliar goings on.


Leave the pets at home in a safe, familiar and quiet place!

Your idea for the puppy is a good one. Everyone who has parrots, though, PLEASE don't include them as "props." They're very sensitive creatures (some can't even stand normal hats or a change in hair color of their owner) and would be very upset by the costumes and unusual activity. Also, they could be injured or even lost if they try to escape the situation. Those who have experience with parrots will know just what I'm talking about. The experts recommend allowing your parrot to watch from a safe distance if he seems comfortable or let him just hang out in his cage until things are back to normal :-)
