“The Dodo has built its reputation by putting animals first in our video series so it only makes sense to extend that philosophy into live experiences with ‘Best Dog Day Ever,’ said YuJung Kim, President of The Dodo. “We noticed more and more people want to celebrate Halloween with their dogs, and there weren’t many dog-first options in the New York area. Why not create the perfect, spooky, fall day for owners to bond with their pups?”
“Best Dog Day Ever: Halloween Edition” will offer pup-first activations that satisfy your canine’s every whim. Tickets start at $35 for a human and dog duo. Activities include:
The (Trick or) Treat Shoppe A 1950's style malt shoppe meets witches brewery – for dogs, where deliciously scented bubbles fill the air. Let your pup’s nose guide him in choosing the toppings for his very own ice cream sundae (you can have one too). Slide into a loveseat and enjoy your treats together while a kiss cam captures every slobbery moment of your ice cream date.
Canine Corn Maze
Put your dog’s instincts to the test by guiding him through our very own dog-sized corn maze. For the competitive dogs (and dog parents!) among us, finishing times will be displayed on a leaderboard for bragging rights.
The Ultimate Pumpkin Patch Toys on toys...on toys! Your pup will have the experience of a lifetime with a sprawling, interconnected pumpkin patch of toy pits filled with Halloween plush toys of all sizes.
Dogs can slide, leap or dive into these patches and have their way with the toys -- it’s their day!
Dyson’s Transformation Lab
The minds at Dyson created the one-stop-shop of products to solve the biggest problems for pet owners – pet hair, dander and dirt. In the "Mad Scientist" themed lab, attendees will get hands-on experience using
Dyson products while their dogs enjoy complimentary makeovers. Expert groomers dressed as "mad scientists" will be on hand to get your dogs camera ready to capture the "after" moment with the most social share-worthy photo of your pup.
Target’s Costume Cam
The ultimate Halloween costume cam experience from Target gives your pup the chance to try on doggie costumes galore -- that you can find only at Target -- and then model the best one in a 180-degree GIF booth to capture every adorable angle.
Best Halloween Parade Ever!
Dress your pup in his Halloween best and join the crowd for the best parade in Brooklyn!
Strut with your mutt through a festive fall space, including our lounge, where guests can kick back with a beer (or a dog beer!) and unwind in a comfortable chair (or dog bed!) while they watch the parade.
The winners of each costume category will receive a wag-worthy prize.
Project Forever Home
Something that would truly give a dog his best day ever? Finding his forever family.
Come by for a chance to meet adorable, adoptable dogs who are waiting patiently in the world’s happiest haunted house, complete with a fenced-in backyard, to find their perfect parents!
