Halloween can be fun for the whole family to enjoy! But there can be some risks that you'll want to avoid for your furry four legged friends. Here are 5 things to avoid this Halloween season for your pets:
1. No Candy
If your dog is anything like mine, they can flash those baby eyes and make you feel so guilty for eating anything in front of them that you can't share. But please, don't share. It's better to be safe than sorry. Halloween candy is meant for humans, not pets.
2. Proper Identification
Halloween can have a lot of people inside and out of your home, which is okay even if you have a pet. Just make sure that your pet has proper identification incase he/she slips from their collar.
3. Make Sure The Costume Fits
A lot of people enjoy dressing their pet up for the occasion and it's okay to do as long as the costume fits your pet comfortably and they can use the restroom with ease. You'll want to make sure you don't leave your pet alone in their costume and try to avoid things hanging in their face that they can become distracted by and chew off.
4. Avoid Trick-Or-Treating
Although Trick-or-Treating can seem like a fun activity to enjoy with your pet, all of the lights, smoke, loud random noises, etc. can be overwhelming for your pet. It's better to leave your pet at home for this activity to avoid any unnecessary stress.
5. Safety First
If your pet doesn't enjoy strangers, don't expose them to an overwhelming amount of trick-or-treaters. Depending on your pet, it may make more sense for them to stay in the other room where they can relax.
We hope you have a great Halloween!
