Tricks & Treats Halloween Event: Saturday, October 31st

Tricks & Treats Halloween Event - Saturday, October 31stAt Crossbones, we LOVE Halloween, and we LOVE our clients! So, we're putting together a free Halloween-meets-client-appreciation-party the morning of the 31st. Join us for doggie trick-or-treating, fun activities, take-home crafts, free samples, bingo (Katherine's favorite!), giveaways, and exclusive promotions in our retail store!

Registration Details

To keep this event COVID-compliant, pre-registration is required. When you register, you'll choose a time slot to attend. Each registration allows two people and one dog to attend, just like Flex Classes.

October 2nd through October 4th: Early access registration to currently enrolled Puppy Day School & Educational Daycare clients
Starting October 5th: Registration is open for all clients who have come to Crossbones in the last year

All dogs attending the event must have up-to-date rabies, parvo, and distemper vaccinations on file here at Crossbones.

We encourage festive collars and bandanas! Costumes are welcome if your dog enjoys wearing theirs. (We want to make sure all of the dogs are having fun.)

Treat this event as a training class. Your dog wears a harness and leash no longer than 6' long, and you wear a face mask, a clicker, and a treat pouch stuffed with excellent treats! (No retractible/Flexi leads, prong/choke/shock collars, or on-leash greetings.) This will set you and your pup up to have a great time.

This event is FREE!
