4:30 – Howling Contest & Raffle Drawing
Thankfully, none of our dogs are going to turn into human-eating monsters at the sight of a full moon. What our domestic dogs have in common with these supernatural creatures is their ability to howl. Does your pup go nuts at the sound of a siren? How about if you howl? This is a noisy game, but it can be hilarious to watch and join in with a bunch of dogs howling. The dog with the spookiest howl wins a treat bag.
5:00 – Trick for a Treat & Raffle Drawing
Does you dog have some tricks to show off? We would love to see them! All participants will receive a special treat for trying. Our judges will determine the leader of the pack and award them with a treat bag.

Dog owners, please follow these tips to ensure your canine companion is safe and happy during this event:
For some pets, wearing a costume may cause undue stress. The ASPCA recommends that you don’t put your dog in a costume unless you know he or she loves it. If you do dress up your pet, make sure the costume does not limit his or her movement, sight or ability to breathe, or bark. Check the costume carefully for small, dangling or easily chewed-off pieces that could present a choking hazard. Ill-fitting outfits can get twisted on external objects or your pet, leading to injury.
Be sure to have your pet try on the costume before the big night. If he or she seems distressed or shows abnormal behavior, consider letting your pet wear his or her “birthday suit” or don a festive bandanna instead.
Have your dogs up to date on vaccinations at least 1 week prior to the event.
Please come prepared with a leash and bags for cleaning up should your pet relief themselves!
If your dog isn’t accustomed to strange places and people but you don’t want to miss out, no worries! We will send you home with a doggie bag for your friend to enjoy.
Parents, please keep in mind it will be your responsibility to ensure your children are watched and safe. Here are some helpful hints!
For smaller children, please refrain from puffy costumes, we would hate to have a dog confuse them for a toy!
Instruct children to ask before petting participating dogs.
Help keep dogs safe by explaining how important it will be to not feed any of the dogs’ candy.
