If you love Halloween, it’s time to rejoice because October is here! I know I’m not the only one already pulling out decorations and planning costumes. 

If you’re wanting your pet to get into the Halloween spirit this year, you have to check out these easy (and affordable) DIY Halloween costumes. There’s no reason for you to spend a ton of money on a costume that your dog will only wear one night; and probably not for too long at that.
