Here are ten of my favourite Halloween goodies for cats, dogs and other pets, from the talented sellers of Etsy.
From elegant bow ties to funky houses and from amazing treat storage to dinosaur outfits, here are some great ideas for spooky treats for your furry friends this Halloween.
After all, why should they be left out of the fun?
Catnip Kicker Cat Toy by The Wobbly Cat
What an adorable cat nip toy for the puss who has (nearly) everything. Two organic cat nip kickers, in an adorable pouch. And here is the real “kicker”.. the pouch can be personalized with your cat’s name. How posh is that?
The Wobbly Cat also has some really cute, personalized Halloween themed cat pillows and you can even pick up your puss’s Christmas stocking whilst you are at it.
This California-based shop ships world wide and has a great customer-friendly returns policy. So why hasn’t your cat got a personalized catnip pouch all of their very own?
“Trick of Treat” Halloween Dog Bandana by BabiesNBarks
Your dog could look super smart for Halloween in this snazzy “Trick or Treat” traditional tie-on bandana from Californian seller, Katie of BabiesNBarks.
It is available in different sizes so you can be sure that you get one to fit. Katie can even make a custom size just for your furry friend.
BabiesNBarks has nearly one hundred different bandanas, bibs, burp cloths and baby blankets – yes things for babies, and dogs (bet you guessed that from the shop name, didn’t you?). All are beautifully made and there are lots of halloween items on offer. I love the Halloween baby pillowcase dresses.
Hocus Pocus Halloween Pet Bedding by Comfy Pet Pads
After a hard day’s trick or treating (or chasing next door’s cat) a dog needs somewhere to crash, and at Halloween time he would prefer a nice themed dog bed! Luckily this jolly Hocus Pocus dog bed from Comfy Pet Pads is available to solve this very problem.
Your dog will love to settle down on the soft fleece.. and you will appreciate that it is machine washable!
Jeannie from Comfy Pet Pads has a wide range of dog bets, pads, pet blankets and pouches, in a really amazing range of beautiful designs. Whatever your furry friends (or you) are into, they probably have something that will be right up your street.
And guess what? Jeannie can make a custom creation just for you.
Dinosaur Dog Costume by Ruff Around Edges
Even the cutest dog sometimes secretly wants to be all big and scary. And in this wonderful dinosaur costume from Ruff Around Edges, he can be. Of course, you mustn’t tell him that he really looks very adorable and not scary at all too.
Ruff Around Edges (what a brilliant name!) also offer the dinosaur outfit in a cheerful blue, and have a great Jack O Lantern costume too. They also have other dog costumes, coats and even doggy “spankies” (diapers for dogs).
Squeaker Cthulhu Dog Toy by Cherry Willow
What self-respecting dog would not want a squeaker Cthulhu toy of their very own this Halloween? Well, they are in luck as that is exactly what Cherry Willow has for sale in her lovely Etsy shop.
Sure, he is probably more cute than scary, but I bet your dog will love him. You can even choose from a range of colours in case your pet prefers his halloween monsters in a particular shade.
Cherry Willow has many other beautifully made dog and cat toys available, including a catnip pumpkin and candy corn dog squeakers. There are also lots of great Christmas items too, if you are starting your shopping nice and early this year.
Pumpkin Igloo Cover by The Homespun Loft
This is such a clever idea! Does your guinea pig, hedgehog, ferret or other small animal sleep in one of those plastic igloos? If so, why not treat him or her to a funky fleecy pumpkin cover for it! Suddenly that boring old plastic looks a heck of a lot smarter.. and more seasonal too.
The Homespun Loft has a huge range of wonderful snuggly items for small pets. From cute little fleece sleeping bags for hamsters to amazing castles for the hedgehog or guinea pig who deserves to live like a king (or queen).
They even sell things for humans too. Really nice things. But mostly for the pets. They have their priorities right 🙂
Custom Designed K-9 Treat Jar for “Howloween” by Happy Dog Hydrants
Wow, this is something very exciting and different. Your dog could have his or her very own hydrant styled dog treat jar. And this one is spooky halloween themed, in a snazzy orange.
If Halloween ain’t your scene (why are you reading this article? hehe) then you might want to choose from the wide range of other themes and colours of hydrant available. Your dog could even have one with their name on it!
Happy Dog Hydrant say “Don’t hide your pet’s treats away! NOW you can keep them within easy reach! ” You definitely will not want to hide these unique treat jars, they will be a fantastic talking point. Store your dog’s treats in style this Halloween.
Candy Corn Bow Tie by Tuna Wear Pets
I say! What does a doggy have to do to get some Halloween treats around here? I put my super-smart candy corn bow tie on just for the occasion. You know I look the biz.
And your dog can look the biz too in this extra posh Halloween neck wear from Tuna Wear Pets.
This elegant shop offers a very wide range of bow ties (and other accessories) for your four legged friend. Surely a shop for the more discerning pooch.
Check out the pictures in this shop, you will not regret it 🙂

Halloween Cat Collar by 5 Tall Tails
Naturally your cat will want to look her best this Halloween, especially when she is out and about chasing all those ghosties and goblins. Pop this handsome collar on her and she will be the envy of her feline friends.
The Halloween Cat Collar from 5 Tall Tails features pumpkins, bats and black cats and is a “breakaway” style for safety. Plus there are loads more designs to choose from if your cat is fussy (and we all know that cats usually are). Oh, there are also lots of lovely dog collars too. Check out the Christmas range whilst you are there, and have the smartest pets this festive season.
