GIVEAWAY: Halloween Toys from Petco!


Are you ready for cooler weather and fall fun? (After yet another 100+ degree day, I know I am!!)

Fall lies just around the corner. We’re already seeing Halloween displays in stores, and it’s just a matter of time until Halloween festivals and parades for pets begin.

To kick off this season, we’ve got a fun giveaway for a surprise batch of Halloween toys from Petco.  The selection is amazing but I think one of my favorites is the Petco Halloween Light Up Rubber Fetch Dog Toy. Not only is the vanilla-scented toy in fun fall colors but, when you bump the toy, it lights up…perfect for fun on short fall days.

AND, if you win and you’d also like to receive a Petco costume, tell us about your dog in a comment. We have a big batch of costumes and we just might have your dog’s size!

How to Enter

We’ve got numerous ways to enter in the widget below; enter with as many or as few entries as you like. Good luck!

  • Linda Szymoniak

    I’d love to win a costume, as long as I could get one that was big enough for at least one dog in my “pack”. I have five rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds. The smallest is about 55 pounds and definitely smaller than the others (she’s my deaf baby, Ran, who is in my profile picture). Then I have my senior girl, Suki, who has lost weight after being overweight for a number of years – she’s about 60 pounds and if I were to use a costume for her, it would have to be more of a dog coat styled like a costume – something to keep her warm. The other three are in the 70-75 pound range, although my Kyoko is shorter than the boys but she’s chubby.

He does not like anything on his head or paws, especially his front paws. He is a smart and spoiled little shortie. He brings things around the house to us, he loves “hunting” for his little dog food pieces that we hide in different places, and he is crazy about squeaky toys.

    Our Maggie helps me to be tidy. Just last night I left my socks on the floor and as she was walking past me….without missing a beat….she picked one up and kept on walking.

  • Linda Pannell

    Our Maggie has learned a new word. I can’t say the word, I have to spell the word. Because when I say the word she goes to the door and wants outside. I don’t want her running down the drive and out into the road when I go to get the M A I L. She is so quick and our M A I L box is about 100 yards from the house.

    Would love to win a dog costume! While I love Shiloh’s costumes, he’s been wearing the same one for a few years now and could use a new one. Shiloh is a sheltie, but big at 20″ tall- about the size of a border collie. Wager is the one that really needs a costume yet- this will be his first Halloween and we haven’t found the perfect costume for him yet. He’s also a sheltie, but much smaller than Shiloh- maybe 13 or 14″ tall and only about 15lbs.

  • Phoenixtl

    A small superhero costume would be great.

  • Jerry Cartwright

    I’m not sure if I’d like to see a costume on my dog or not but I’m sure that my wife and daughter would be tickled to see him in one. I’m not even sure that I could get him into one. I think he might whoop me. LOL He’s a big boy, 92.5 lbs. A White English Bulldog.
