Attend Dog Parades
Parade with dogs for a Howl-o-Ween time
Spooky-lite costume fun with dogs
Add some joy and put a little fun in your life and go to a local Halloween dog parade. These dog-loving Halloween parades are run across the country and are anything but scary.
Bark if you like Howl-o-Ween
Every year dogs around the world stare up at their owners and, using their deep, dark, pleading eyes, try to send the human the news of the local Halloween dog parade. Of course, the dogs are also excited about their choices of costumes. My Pug Charlie is obsessed with Halloween costumes, so much so that he's insisted we take a poll to help him pick his Halloween costume.
My dogs could make their own parade
Around here, with six dogs ranging from a 3.5 lb Mi-Ki to a terribly tall Geat Pyrenees, we can put on our own parade, but, of course, it's much more fun to have friends and folks who share your passion for dogs and for this spooky, fun time of year. We all need an excuse to dress up, right?

Enjoy the following videos and photographs of dogs in costume but don't forget to read about Charlie's Halloween costume dilemma. There's also a place to vote for your favorite costume and share links about your local Halloween dog parades. Have fun.

Three reasons to attend a Halloween dog parade - A fun Halloween event to share with your dog
- It's fun. If you have a dog, it's a great opportunity for you to do something your dog and share in an activity. If you don't, think of the fun you'll have people watching and laughing and enjoying as all the dogs in costume parade by.
- It's an opportunity to exercise--with your dog. Walking with your dog is a great active activity to do with your dog. Doing it in a Halloween dog parade really ups the ante for fun while you burn off a few calories--and it's good for your dog, too.
- It's a great way to meet new dog lovers--and for your dog to show off his or her's meet-and-greet charms.
