Spooky Fun

From villains to heroes, PetSmart inspires fun for all pets this
Halloween. Manny the Frenchie, the Chicago-based Instagram pet celebrity
with over a million followers, is already gearing up for Halloween night
with his favorite costumes, treats and toys from PetSmart.

“Manny loves Halloween – his favorite costumes this year are the BB-8
Star Wars costume and Batman,” said Amber Chavez, Manny’s pet parent.
“Manny and his siblings love joining us while we pass out candy to the
neighbor kids. This year we’ll be able to include treating the dogs in
the neighborhood thanks to all the cute Halloween snacks PetSmart has
this year!”

Brand new this year, and available exclusively at PetSmart, is the Beggin’
Strips® Halloween Grab and Go Variety Pack
. The bag, which consists
of 14 fun-size pouches of savory treats, is perfect for passing out to
the pups trick-or-treating with their families.

and ginger, as well as on-trend macaroon cookies and cannolli
