Halloween is a fun filled event for kids and adults alike.  It is however a people holiday and it can be very scary for the four legged friends in your household.  You must keep your pet safe and stress free during Halloween.  It is important to keep in mind some tips when it comes to sharing this holiday with your dog.

  • Walk or let your dog out before the trick-or-treaters start to visit. Your pets should not be outdoors unless they are supervised.  Black cats can be targets for cruel jokes this time of year so take precautions to protect your pets.

  • Candy is not good for animals so be sure to place all of the goodies in a secure place.  If a dog eats chocolate it can be deadly.  Symptoms of chocolate poisoning include: Vomiting, diarrhea, rapid heartbeat, hyperactivity, increased thirst, excessive drooling, frequent urination, muscle tremors, seizures or coma.  If any of these symptoms occur your dog can be in serious danger so get them to a vet immediately.

  • Ingesting candy wrappers can pose a choking hazard or cause a intestinal blockage so make sure all trash is thrown away immediately.

  • Costumes and masks can really scare your dog.  A scared dog can be unpredictable so always take precautions.  Let the dog know that it is you. Never try and scare the dog as a joke.  If he/she is afraid then make sure they are kept in another room away from the door where the trick-or-treaters arrive.

  • Keep pieces to your costume out of the reach of your pet.  Wigs, rubber or plastic masks, make up and small accessories can be hazardous to your dogs health. 

  • Make sure all Halloween decorations are out of the reach of the dog. Remember that your pet will be very curious with the new items in your home. Use caution if you plan to decorate with a lit carved pumpkin.  Make sure it is located in a place where your pet can not reach.  This is especially true if you have a curious kitten in the house.

  • If you opt  to put a costume on your dog make sure he/she is comfortable in it.  Eyes, and ears should not be covered and the leg movement should not be jeopardized.  Never put anything over its face that could restrict breathing.  If your pet seems stressed by the costume then give up the idea.

  • Many dogs do not like strangers, especially in the dark and in unfamiliar settings, so think about leaving your dog at home on Halloween.  The dog will probably be happier in the long run.  Never take your dog and leave him/her in the car.

  • Be sure you dog has a collar and identification on them just in case they escape with the doors opening.

  • Most importantly remember that all of the excitement may make your dog tired so let him/her rest.
