It's time for tricks and treats this Halloween— dog tricks and dog treats, that is! Halo with Cesar Millan is launching its first-ever HALOween Dog Costume Challenge on Instagram today.
The HALOween Dog Costume Challenge is open for submissions now through Oct. 31, 2020, at midnight. The Halo team will confirm and announce the top three prize winners during the first week of November.
Dog lovers across the country are invited to share photos of their costumed dogs on Instagram and Facebook with the official hashtag #HALOweendog2020 to enter the challenge for a chance to win one of three pawesome prize packages. Halo Collar is the first and only smart dog collar with smart fences, intuitive training, and GPS location all in one, designed with Cesar Millan's time-tested expert dog training methodology in mind.
Halo Collar's Instagram, @halocollar. Enter by posting a photo of your dog on your instagram profile, which must be public, and use the hashtag #HALOweenDog2020
The HALOween Dog Costume Challenge will provide an opportunity for canine-loving people and families to express themselves and have fun. Did we hear someone say "witch way to the treats?"
All three winners will get a Halo T-shirt (for humans!), an exclusive invitation to Halo Collar's virtual launch event with Cesar Millan, and the ability to select a pet rescue or shelter to which Halo will provide a $500 charitable donation on their behalf. In addition, the first prize winner will receive a Halo Collar, a professional photoshoot with their dog as the model, and a special feature on Halo's website and/or social media pages.
The judging criteria will be based on 1) Originality/Creativity, 2) Authenticity, 3) Family Appropriateness, 4) Overall Presentation, 5) Number of Likes, and 6) Photo Quality/Attention to Detail.
Entrants must have their Instagram profile set to public (not private) to be eligible, and the photo must contain the official hashtag to be entered. Entrants must live in the U.S. and be 18 years of age or older. One entry per person per dog. If a person has multiple dogs, he/she may enter a separate individual photo for each costumed pet, or he/she may submit one group entry photo. Photos must be of dogs (sorry, cats!) and all costumes must be family-friendly and not contain any trademarked/licensed brands.
