CHICAGO (WLS) -- Family pets are getting in on the Halloween fun! From adorable costumes to spooky treats, there's something every dog and cat can enjoy for the holiday. But you also need to be aware of the added stress Halloween can cause for some pets. Make sure candy is out of reach as it can be harmful for many pets. If your dog or cat is frightened by other people, trick-or-treaters can make them nervous. It's best to keep animals away in a safe space unless they can handle the constant visitors. If you do decide to trick-or-treat with your pet, make sure they're wearing reflective items so drivers can see them.
Bentley's PetStuff is wishing all furry family members a happy Halloween. The company's stores around the Chicago area are hosting pet costume contests on October 26 starting at 6 p.m. It's free to enter and you don't even need to register. The founder and president of Bentley's PetStuff, Lisa Senafe, visited ABC 7 with a few spooky guests and some devilish doggy treats.
