Happy Howl-O-Ween! Tips for celebrating the 31st with your dog

By 4Knines Staff. | Holidays
22 Halloween puppy Halloween isn't just for kids! Our four-legged best friends can benefit from some extra laughs, hugs and treats too. Whether you throw a doggie costume party or a chow-down contest, curl up with your dog for a movie or pass out candy together, spending extra time with your dog on this holiday that is known for causing frights will help keep the anxiety for him/her at bay, and give you a chance to spend some quality time with your pooch. Here are some ideas for celebrating the 31st with your dog: Doggie Costume "Paw-ty"- The jury is still out on this one! Dressing pets in costumes is fun for many, but some would rather not. If dressing up is your thing, consider throwing a doggie costume party and inviting your dog's friends from around the block to join in for a dog photo booth, dog games and dogs treats. Our Pinterest board is full of great ideas for throwing a dog "paw-ty," including free printables for the photo booth and ideas for dog games! If you're not one for pet costumes, don't skip the party! Consider a colorful doggie bowtie or bandanna or a simple party hat. (Disclaimer: If you dress your pet in a costume, be sure he/she likes it. It shouldn't cause them stress, constrict breathing, or impede movement or vision.) Safe Dog Treats- It's only natural to let our dogs join in on the fun of Halloween treats, but it's also important to remember that human candy, like chocolate is not safe for dogs. Instead a safe, homemade recipe that looks like the real thing can be a good alternative. For example, doggie candy cornpeanut butter/pumpkin bones and iced biscuits. Or just stock up on bones and doggie jerky you already know they like. Take it a step further and invite some other dogs over for a chow-down contest. (Disclaimer: Be sure to keep discarded candy wrappers out of reach of pets, as they can be choking hazards and dangerous if swallowed.) Scary Movie Night- Some dogs can get overwhelmed by all the hustle and bustle of Halloween night. If that's the case for yours, skip handing out candy and curl up with your family for a scary movie night. You might choose a dog-themed movie, or pick your Halloween favorite, just as long as it won't truly frighten your pet. Make some dog-friendly treats and enjoy a laid-back evening!

bought two of these

Searched for different ones, decided on this one. Exceeded all expectations. Bought one for a new care and another for our 2004 4 runner. Provides good protection for vehicle and our 140 dog. We travel and camp extensively also good for bringing thing back form garden shop.

Great product!

Does exactly what we wanted. We can easily raise a part of the seat to give our dogs better access to the rear seat of our pickup. And it's easily removed or installed when we need to put humans back there!

Great Cover - Great Company

The covers are absolutely the best and I have had quite a few over the years. I had a minor issue with my cover and asked if I could get it repaired. The response was: "Thank you for reaching out to us. Your cover is absolutely covered by 4Knines Lifetime Warranty!" I received a new one.

Perfect gift

I purchased this rear bench cover for a friend with two dogs that frequently accompany her to her barn. No problem with wet, muddy feet. Fits well and protects her investment in her car. The cover arrived promptly as promised.
