One in five Americans plan to dress up their pet for Halloween, and this year PetSmart is showing how they will do anything for pets by offering the trendiest costumes and a virtual costume contest. If you’re still deciding what your fur baby should be this year, pumpkins, hot dogs, superheroes and cats are among the most popular choices.
New survey results by the National Retail Federation found that the classic pumpkin costume remains the most popular for pets, with 10 percent of pet parents planning to turn their fur baby into a squash. Hot dog costumes followed with 5 percent of pet parents, superheroes and cats with 4 percent and bumblebees winning more than 3 percent of pet parents.
Fortunately, PetSmart is ready to help pet parents embrace this year’s trends, with a variety of pumpkin costumes for dogs, cats, bearded dragons and guinea pigs. Pet parents can even match their fur baby in a Halloween Pumpkin Sweater Set!
PetSmart also offers popular hot dog and superhero costumes, including Batman, Black Panther and Wonder Woman. Plus, PetSmart’s bumblebee costume for dogs, cats and guinea pigs is also a crowd pleaser.
