Must-Haves for Trick-or-Treating
Dog Treat Pouch
A must for any dog walk, especially when trick-or-treating with a dog, on Halloween, is some treats. That way, you can reward them for their efforts throughout the night. A good treat pouch allows you to have treats at your fingertips, and it also provides an easy place to put your keys, phone, or other essential goodies.

Dog Poop Bags
Nobody wants to step on dog poop, and with high traffic on the streets during trick-or-treating, it's very important to clean up after your dog. Make sure you carry some poop bags with you to take care of any waste immediately. You can throw out the bag later.

LED Dog Collar
When it's dark on the streets on October 31, it's important to make sure that your dog is more visible to cars and children. This LED collar looks similar to a glow stick necklace but is illuminated by two bright LED lights, making it safer than the goo typically in glow sticks if your dog gnaws on it. The glow should last 60 hours, which is more than enough time for a trick-or-treating outing.

Nice-to-Haves for Trick-or-Treating
Reflective Dog Harness
If you are bringing your dog out trick-or-treating, make sure they are always securely leashed. You may also want to try a reflective dog harness. A reflective harness can keep the dog visible in the dark and prevent them from running off and getting lost if they get startled.

Festive Bandana
Some dogs find costumes restrictive, stressful, or uncomfortable to wear. If your dog isn't the costume type, consider trying a festive bandana. This one reads "I Do Tricks For Treats," which is delightfully appropriate for the walk. Just makes sure to have dog treats handy.

Splurges for Trick-or-Treating
Dog Boots
There's a lot of things that are left on the ground each Halloween. Properly-sized dog boots can help protect your dog's feet, but make sure you buy them in advance and introduce them to your dog. Put the boots on your dog for the first time in the house. Keep training sessions short until your dog is comfortable walking in the boots.
