Do you dress up your dog for Halloween? More than half of pet parents plan to do so this year. That’s according to a new, independent survey of 2,000 pet parents commissioned by Wag!
We didn’t ask the dogs what they thought about this, but 30 percent of their parents told us that they (the parents) prefer funny costumes.
If you’re going to the trouble of cutting and sewing — or shopping and clicking — we think you should be rewarded. Or at least have that opportunity.
That's why Wag! is teaming up with actress and dog mom, Olivia Munn, for our first Howl-o-ween Costume Contest. How’s that for a spooktacular idea?
Entering is easy — except for getting the costume on your dog and having him sit still for a picture. Once you have the pic, visit our contest site and choose a category to enter: Pop Culture, Scary, or Funny.
You can even enter all three categories! Just use a different pic for each entry — and make sure the picture is appropriate for the category. You have until October 16, 2018, to upload your pup’s pic.
Starting October 19, the public will decide who wears it best. The top vote-getter in each category will receive $500 in Wag! credits for walking and sitting services, a $250 dog gift bag, and a $100 Wag! swag bag full of fun stuff for both pooches and people.
From those three top finalists — one in each category — Olivia will choose the grand prize winner. (No doubt, her rescue pups, Chance and Frankie, will weigh in.) The contest’s top dog will receive the wickedly pawsome prize of $1,000 cash and a $1,000 donation to the winner’s favorite dog charity.
So, what do you think? Whether you whip out a needle and thread or find your pup’s winning outfit online, we hope you’ll join the fun. With more than half the country’s pet parents planning to dress up their dogs this Halloween, you don’t want to miss out — even if your dog thinks you’re barking up the wrong tree.
