Halloween isn't just for humans... it's for dogs, too!

Dog-O-Ween will return to three Theisen's locations here in Eastern Iowa later this month. Dress up your pup(s) and bring them to one of the participating stores on Sunday, October 27th. Registration will begin at 1:30 p.m., with the contest starting promptly at 3 p.m. The entry fee for each dog is $10, with all of the proceeds benefiting the Cedar Valley Humane Society and the Johnson County Humane Society (depending on your location). There are two different categories your dogs can compete in: Dog Only and Combo (dog and a person). First, second, and third place prizes will be awarded in both categories:

  • 1st Place: $150 Theisen's Gift Card
  • 2nd Place: $100 Theisen's Gift Card
  • 3rd Place: $75 Theisen's Gift Card

It's important to note that all participating dogs must be up to date on their rabies and distemper/parvo/bordetella vaccines. Also, if your dog does not get along well with other people or other dogs, it would be best to leave them at home. The event is free for anyone who wants to come watch!

Each of us here at KHAK will be hosting a Dog-O-Ween on the 27th. Here our are designated locations:


  • Brain - Theisen's East at 1800 51st St NE in Cedar Rapids
  • Courtlin - Theisen's West at 3111 16th Ave SW in Cedar Rapids
  • Bob James - Theisen's Coralville at 100 Westcor Dr in Coralville

We can't wait to see you and your pups at the event!
