Having worked in the shelter system i have seen first hand what happens to those dogs whose owners do not take the proper steps to keep their dogs safe and secure.
Firecrackers while fun for humans, can be very scary for dogs. If you are planning on taking your son or daughter out trick or treating, please leave fido at home secure in the house.
Never leave your dog outside alone on Halloween, many get spooked by the loud noises and end up getting out and lost. With so many people dressed up in scary costumes it is easy for dogs to get confused and injured.
For dogs that are extra spooked at loud noises, you can try adding a little Rescue Remedy to their collar or a bandana to help calm their nerves. This can be purcased at your local drug store easily.
The safest and best place for your dog on Halloween is inside your house with a bone to chew on and a warm bed to relax on.
If you are going to be having kids coming to your door, make sure your dog has the obedience manners to stay sitting at a location in your home where they can not end up rushing out the door if spooked by a noise of child in costume.
Keep Fido Safe & Happy Halloween
