Howl-O-Wow ’Em With PetSmart This Halloween

Stocks in this article: PETM

There’s no need to fear things that howl in the night – or finding the perfect pet Halloween costume. PetSmart (NASDAQ: PETM) has all of the spooks, guises and goodies pet parents need.

“Choosing a costume for your pet is like choosing a costume for yourself – you want something that reflects your or your pet’s personality,” says author and entertaining expert Kimberly Schlegel Whitman.

From super cute to oh-so-scary, PetSmart offers a wide variety of exclusive outfits for dogs and cats, including: rocker wear by Bret Michaels Pets Rock TM, iconic Halloween characters from Martha Stewart Pets TM, and super hero personas from DC Comics and Marvel. Here are a few favorites:

PetHalloween™ by Top Paw™ Plush Sock Monkey™ Costume Your pets will enjoy monkeying around in this red-white-brown polyester outfit that resembles the iconic stuffed monkey. “I love everything retro, and the Sock Monkey reminds me of toys I had growing up,” says Schlegel Whitman.

Bret Michaels Halloween Wig with Bandana What pet wouldn’t want a head-banging rocker head of hair? These blonde, bandana-topped tresses will make you scream with delight. “This hilarious costume is great for the pet with a little edge and is sure to make any pet parent laugh,” says Schlegel Whitman.

Super Hero Halloween Apparel by Top Paw In a world of ordinary pets, these colorful outfits by DC Comics and Marvel give pets everything they need to beat the ghouls and goblins on Halloween. “Kids will love trick-or-treating with their pets dressed as one of their favorite super heroes including Wonder Woman, Superman and Spider-Man,” Schlegel Whitman says.

Martha Stewart Halloween Skeleton Costumes No bones about it, Martha Stewart knows how to make the undead sparkle with a pink skeleton suit and a glow-in-the dark black skeleton outfit. “These costumes really spice up the traditional Halloween skeleton,” Schlegel Whitman says.
