Are you shopping for a Halloween costume for you or your dog? Spirit Halloween, with 1,400 stores in the US and Canada, is the largest Halloween retailer in North America? But can you bring your dog in a Spirit Halloween store?
Is Spirit Halloween dog friendly?
Wondering if your dog will be welcome in a Spirit Halloween store? The answer is no, unless your dog is a service dog.
Hello Lydia. Unfortunately, only service dogs are allowed in our stores.

If you need to shop for a Spirit Halloween costume, you’ll need to leave your dog at home then head to one of their many popup shops that are open just for the weeks leading up to Halloween and a few days afterwards–or shop their online store.
They do have a great selection of costumes for people and pets; a few years ago, I reviewed some of their Halloween costumes for dogs:
Wherever you buy your dog’s Halloween costume, remember that safety comes first. Don’t miss our tips on choosing a safe Halloween costume for dogs.
And remember: some dogs–Tiki, we’re looking at you–just don’t like clothing or costumes, period. Get in the Halloween spirit by just buying your dog a Halloween-themed dog collar or special bandana. Even if you’re participating in a dog-friendly Halloween parade, your dog will be looking spook-tacular!
Can I bring my service dog to Spirit Halloween?
Yes, a trained service dog that is required to assist you is allowed in any store location under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA):
However, the service dog has to be performing a service for the person shopping.
For example, if a husband has a service dog, a wife cannot take the service dog into the store by herself. The dog has to be with the person for whom he is a service dog.
@prinnova Remember Spirit Halloween is NOT pet friendly. Both dogs in these videos are task trained service dogs according to the ADA. #spirithalloween#servicedog#servicedoglife#halloween#foryoupage#fyp#servicedogsoftiktok#dogs#spooky#spookyseason ♬ drowning spears by oneboredjeu – Johnathon “NIGHTMÆR” Miranda
