As the ref of Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl, Dan Schachner knows cute when he sees it.

While the big game is still a few months away, the Road to the Puppy Bowl celebration is going strong. To get everyone ready for the adorable rumble that is the Puppy Bowl — and to revel in the Halloween spirit — Schachner stopped by PEOPLE Now with some special guests from Muddy Paws Rescue.

The precious (and adoptable!) pups visiting from the shelter channeled their inner part-time models for a Halloween fashion show. Schachner was there in the seats to give his professional opinion on what makes a great, regulation, rule-abiding costume.

Turns out the only rule in Halloween pet fashion is making sure both you and your pet are having fun.
