Pet Halloween costumes are a hit on Fox 2 Detroit

Our District Manager Sean O’Rourke and I were invited to go on Fox 2 Detroit to talk about what’s new this year in Halloween costumes for pets. See pictures of us preparing for our LIVE TV segment below with Gus (as Wonder Woman), Dino (as a Minion), Simba (in the stroller as a pumpkin in a haunted pumpkin patch) and Bambi (as a Lion).

Some of the questions they asked us:

What’s hot in pet costumes this year?

Movie and TV characters are popular again this year, along with the old-time traditional costumes like pumpkins and lions.

How much does the typical costume cost?

Expect to pay about $20 for a full costume; much less for accessories such as bandanas and hats.

What if my pet won’t go on a leash?

Consider using a stroller or pet carrier for your cat or small dog and making it part of the costume. See our haunted pumpkin patch stroller below!

What is the best place to take my pet Trick-or-Treating this year?

Pet Supplies Plus in Bloomfield Hills!  Pets in costume will be Trick-or-Treating for pet treats and food samples at multiple stations set up around the store. It all takes place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Halloween – Saturday, October 31! Also visit our haunted photo set and have you and your pet’s picture taken with Frankenstein! Click here for more info!
