How to Have a Pawsome Halloween: DIY Pet Costumes and Treats

At, we know that no holiday is complete without including our furry and feathered friends. Halloween is no exception! In this blog post, we’ll share some pawsome DIY pet costume ideas and pet-safe Halloween treats for your four-legged family members.

DIY Pet Costumes

With a bit of creativity and imagination, your pets can celebrate Halloween in style. Here are a few adorable and festive DIY costume ideas:

  • Superdog: Transform your dog into a cape-wearing superhero with a simple piece of fabric and a logo. Cut a small cape out of fabric, and attach a ribbon to tie it around your dog’s neck. Create a logo out of felt and glue it to the cape’s back.
  • Ghost Cat: Using a small white sheet or a piece of fabric, create a spooktacular ghost costume for your feline friend. Cut two eye holes and drape it over your cat’s head. Remember to trim any excess fabric to ensure your cat can move with ease.
  • Sushi Fish: Turn your scaly friend into a sushi roll masterpiece with some DIY magic. Create a small “pillow” out of white felt and wrap your fish tank in a strip of black fabric. Place the felt “pillow” on top of a glass cover or an ornament to give your fish a delightful sushi-inspired backdrop.

Pet-Safe Halloween Treats

While your pets might be bewitched by trick-or-treat candies, many of these sweet treats can be toxic to animals. Instead, spoil them with these tasty and pet-friendly Halloween treats:

  • Pumpkin Dog Biscuits: Mix 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup of canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling), 1/2 cup of peanut butter, and one egg to create the dough. Cut the dough into fun shapes using Halloween-themed cookie cutters and bake at 350°F for 20 minutes.
  • Catnip Kitty Treats: Combine 1 cup of whole wheat flour, 1/4 cup of oats, 1/4 cup of catnip, 1 egg, and 1/3 cup of water to form a dough. Roll it out and use cookie cutters to make festive shapes. Bake the treats at 350°F for 12-15 minutes.
  • Frozen Fish Treats: For your aquatic friends, freeze water with tiny bits of fresh veggies, like peas or spinach, to create festive ice cubes. As the ice melts, your fish will enjoy nibbling on these healthy treats.


When it comes to Halloween, our beloved pets deserve a chance to share in the festivities. With these delightful DIY pet costumes and pet-safe treats, your furry, feathered, and finned family members can enjoy a pawsome Halloween that’s both safe and memorable. Have fun creating, baking, and celebrating the spookiest season of the year with your beloved companions!
