Petco to host Halloween-themed live social commerce event on Oct. 3, the brand's first-ever on YouTube, featuring pet health and wellness tips and adoptable pets
SAN DIEGO, Aug. 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Petco Health and Wellness Company, Inc. (Nasdaq: WOOF) is helping pet parents brew up the best Halloween ever with the latest "Bootique" collection, now available at all Petco pet care centers, at petco.com and via the Petco app. The line features perennial favorites and new innovation spanning an expanded selection of toys, treats, themed apparel, home products and novel offerings for all family pets.
"Halloween is an opportunity to create unforgettable bonding moments with the furry, feathered, finned and scaly family and friends we love most," said Jennifer Kovacs, Vice President of Merchandising, Dog and Cat Supplies, at Petco. "Now offering more options for different pet types and sizes, our new Bootique collection spans Halloween classics, like witches and pumpkins, to unexpected styles, like a kissing booth headpiece and a pickle costume, plus expanded home supplies, pet-pet parent matching apparel, accessories and more. Whether celebrating at home, on a budget, or going all out, we have something for everyone to create a truly memorable Halloween with their pets."
With more than 440 items total, including more than 150 products under $15 and deals such as buy two, get one free,* the Petco Bootique has everything pets and pet parents need to get in the spooky spirit:
- Create scary good looks: Cats and dogs can choose from new creative costumes including a cupcake, burrito and beer run. Small animals and reptiles are in for a treat with the return of the taco and Viking costumes, and rabbits can now join in on the Halloween fun with new detective, tortoise and bee costumes. Pet parents can even match with their best friend with new pajama onesies for humans and dogs and cats.
- Prowl the night safely: Prepare your pet for a night on the town with new night safety gear from Petco's lifestyle and fashion brand, Reddy. To help keep furry friends safe after dark, the new line includes an LED collar and lead, reflective jacket, LED carabiner accessories and a waste bag dispenser with a flashlight for maximum visibility.
- Bone appétit: Halloween wouldn't be complete without treats galore. CLIF PET Plant Based Jerky Pumpkin and Apple Recipe, WholeHearted Grain Free Pumpkin Biscuit Dog Treats and Bootique Monstrous Hambone Coffin Shaped Dog Treats incorporate seasonal flavors or shapes that pups are sure to love. It's important to remember that treats should never make up more than 10% of a pet's calorie intake, and high-quality nutrition is critical to overall health and wellness.
- Make a cozy home set-up: Give your pet's essentials a spooky upgrade with Halloween-themed coffin and pumpkin beds, cozy blankets and pumpkin-shaped bowls and keep them entertained with solo-play toys, like treat-dispensing balls, and plush toys for chewing and cuddling. Even well-adjusted pets can get spooked by new sounds and experiences. Solutions like calming supplements and chews can help mitigate anxiety and promote positive mental health if your pets tend to exhibit stress around people in costumes or seasonal decorations.
- Practice tricks, get trims and keep up routine care: Social events and holidays are the perfect time to brush up on your pet's positive reinforcement-based dog training to encourage top notch manners, and keep them looking their best with a fresh groom to maintain healthy skin and a beautiful coat. Petco's special seasonal grooming package features argan oil and aloe vera shampoo, pumpkin spice seasonal spritz and snout and paw balm, plus teeth brushing, nail buffing and a festive Halloween bandana.**
Additionally, Petco will host a Halloween-themed live social commerce event on Oct. 3 at 5 p.m. PST on Petco's YouTube channel. Pet parents can tune in as the event's celebrity host and Petco partners highlight expert pet health and wellness tips, tricks and treats, with the help of adorable, adoptable pets, to have the best night ever this Halloween.
