Keeping Howl-oween Safe for Fido

If you’re anything like us, you include your pet in almost everything you do, including holiday celebrations – and Halloween’s no different! But with costumes, children, and a constantly ringing doorbell, it can get a little hairy with pets. Here a few quick considerations to help keep everyone safe this Hallows Eve.

• When it comes to costumes, keep it simple – unless your pet really doesn’t mind wearing clothes. While companies have gotten keen on making more comfortable costumes for pets, a festive collar or bandana goes a long way!

• Consider keeping animals in a separate room or their crate during peak trick-or-treating hours. For some pets, it’s a relief to be in their space. For others, it may help to have a puzzle toy and some Pro-Treats if it’s possible to distract them.

• Only pets with a consistently friendly temperament should be taken along for the trick-or-treating fun, as some dogs may get uncomfortable having unrecognizable people being around you and your family – and that’s a perfectly okay reaction to have.

• Once the fun is over, be hyperaware of keeping candy out of paws’ reach! Any kind of candy, from chocolate to gummies, can be dangerous for pets to ingest.
