Here are the Winners of the 2022 DogWatch® Howl-O-Ween Costume Contest!
DogWatch asked for the best Halloween photos of your pets in costume, and you delivered! We received nearly 200 entries this year, and were thoroughly delighted by all of the spooky, silly, super-cute and fantastically creative costumes on display. And we want to give a special salute to all of the pets who patiently posed for the photos – these good boys and girls have definitely earned some yummy treats and belly rubs!
As usual, the DogWatch team had a VERY hard time choosing a winner. After lots of deliberation (and many laughs), we are thrilled to announce the winners of the 2022 DogWatch® How-O-Ween Costume Contest!
