Halloween Party Ideas for Doggy & Kitty
With only a handful of days left for the creepiest festival of the season, preparations are at the peak in every other street of the country. Halloween is the time of the year that brings out the child in you, and you can afford to have a sinister look on for the much-awaited party of the year.
No pet owner wants their loved animal to miss any of the fun the festive season brings, and there’s no better occasion than Halloween to have your four-legged friend a real ball with some spooky costumes, exciting fun activities, and, of course, lots and lots of drooling treats.
If you are looking for some gripping ideas to enjoy this Halloween with your feline or canine companions, this is the right place for you. We have listed out a few fun activities for you and your fluffy friend to make the most of the sinister fiesta.
Where do you get to see your loved companions dressed in all kinds of spooky costumes? A Halloween-themed costume parade is one such place for sure.
Make your invitees aware of the parade in advance and let them know that there’s going to be a winner at the end of it, so they can be as innovative as one can get. If one wants to dress with their pet as a pair, allow them to do so as it adds an additional flavor to the event.
Once the parade is over, ask every participant pet owner to vote in different categories including best dog Halloween costume, best cat Halloween costume, and best paired Halloween costume. Give away prizes to winners but make sure every participant gets a treat for their active involvement.
Give all the pets’ olfactory organs a real exercise with hunting for the treat activity. Before all the guests arrive with their creepily dressed animal companions, hide some of the appetizing pet treats in different places of the party location. Once everyone is in, have the pets smell the treats. The one who finds the greater number of treats gets the ‘best sniffer’ award and a special gift.
A great way to provide all invitee pets to show off their modeling skills is by having a photo contest for pets based on the Halloween theme. Ask all pet owners to click their animal friends in their best Halloween appearances.
At the end of the photoshoot, announce the winners in as many categories as you can, such as the pose of the day, best owner-pet duo, the scariest face, and, the cutest of all, the best-smiling face. Distribute prizes and do not forget to give delicious treats to all the participant pets.
In imitation of ‘Secret Santa’, add fun and excitement to your Halloween party with ghostly gifting. Ask every pet owner to bring along a wrapped gift for the attendee animals without mentioning their name on it. Give a number to each present and ask each pet participant to pick a number from the chit bowl. Hand over the gift matching the number picked by the guest animal. Make sure everyone gets a ghostly gift at the end of it.
Boo! The Halloween Sale is Live.
If there’s a yard or a garden-like open area to your home, the hurdle run can be some activity for your loved animal on this Halloween day. Create obstacles using pipes, small chairs, or cardboards. Make every pet run through the hurdles. Note the time taken by each pet to complete the race. Announce the winner that finishes the race in the least amount of time and give away prizes in the form of delicious treats.
Being true pet lovers at heart, we love our times with the four-legged members of the family. Regardless of which entertainment activities you prefer for your loved animal on this Halloween, exercise safety at all costs and be sure you both have a whale of a time together.
