>> Although Halloween has usually been considered a children’s holiday, these days increasing numbers of “furry kids” are getting in on the fun.
*** PET PARENTS LOVE TO INCLUDE THEIR DOGS ON HALLOWEEN ***

>> 18% of Texas pet parents have given their dog extra treats for Halloween and 16% have taken their dog trick-or-treating.
While we didn’t go trick-or-treating, we did have a fabulous Mommy/Buster Day at Petco. Our grooming specialist, Brittany, not only used Pumpkin scented products for his bath, but gifted Buster with an awesome bandana decorated with skulls!
*** DIFFERENT TREATS FOR DIFFERENT BREEDS ***
>> Big dogs like Dobermans and Great Danes prefer “real meat treats”, while most small ones (Pomeranians and Pugs) choose “soft and chewy” snacks – like Pup-Peroni
>> Soft and chewy treats are also the all-time favorites of terriers (58%), and toy dogs (59%)
>> Biscuits and crunchy treats (like Milk-Bone) are the clear favorites of hounds (53%), herding dogs (56%), and sporting dogs (57%)
Buster still favors the original Milk-Bone Biscuits. However, he was intrigued with Milo’s Kitchen’s Homestyle Dog Treats: Grilled Burger Bites. They are adorable! I couldn’t help but chuckle at these mini-hamburgers.
I love that as a pet-parent, I can trust Big Heart Pet Brands to always provide quality, made in the USA products. He loves the taste & with the tremendous variety of flavors they offer, he never gets bored.
*** MILO KITCHEN’S HALLOWEEN “DOGGY TRICKS TOP 10 RANKING” ***
Because dogs are the ultimate tricksters, Milo’s Kitchen brand dog treats wanted to uncover, for the first time, which tricks dogs are best able to perform. The nation’s most popular doggy tricks are:
#1: Sit (77% of dogs can do this on command)
#2: Shake paws (58%)
#3: Lay down (57%)
#4: Stay (50%)
#5: Give a kiss (44%)
#6: Beg (31%)
#7: Roll over (27%)
#8: Speak or bark (26%)
#9: Spin (14%)
#10: Play dead (10%)
He’s still young & learning tricks. But, he will give you his paw & I’ll gotten him to roll over. Most often, he’d rather just play with his favorite toy- his rubber chicken.
