Let me just say, I used to be completely against dressing up pets any time of the year. That is when I heard that Americans spend $330 million on pet costumes each year and Milk-Bone and Brit + Co have partnered up to put on a fantastic Halloween pet costume contest where you can win some great prizes.
Milk-Bone has been one of the most respected names in the pet industry for years and now they are working with Brit + Co. to introduce pet parents to pet technology. What a perfect way to kick off this relationship than to celebrate one of the most fun holidays of the year, Halloween with a "Trick or Treat Best Pet Costume Contest."
"Milk-Bone understands the strong bond between dogs and pet parents, and we are so excited to be involved in such an innovative online community that encourages creativity, fun and gives pet parents a new way to express their love of pets online," explains Gina Squara, Digital Director at Del Monte Pet Products.
Brit + Co. is the perfect partner as they bring their DIY projects, mobile apps, and gadgets to pet parents everywhere.
"We are thrilled to be expanding Brit + Co and taking it to the next level," said Brit Morin, CEO and Founder of Brit + Co. "More than 60 percent of our online community are pet parents, so we believe this hub, and our partnership with Milk-Bone, is the perfect addition for the continued growth of our site."
The pet costume contest is up and running- so get creative.
The contest runs through November 2, 2013. Pets and their parents can participate at http://www.brit.co/milk-bone-costume-contest/ to have the chance to win a many great prizes, including a monthly dog box subscription, customizable bed, collars and leashes, as well as a year's supply of Milk-Bone.
It doesn't get any better than that.
