Is it Halloween Again Already?

It seems like only yesterday, but here it is, another year gone by and we're shopping for costumes for the kids, and maybe even for the dogs, too.

Remember these few pointers for a successful Halloween:
  • Costumes should be comfortable and loose enough to allow movement without getting tangled.
  • Many candies are toxic for dogs and should be kept out of reach, especially chocolate.
  • Electric cords and candles should be placed safely to avoid tripping on them and causing a fire.
  • Keep your dog inside all evening. It's potentially hazardous outside, so just avoid it.
  • Even a normally calm dog could get agitated or excited when the front door opens to strangers every few moments, so either keep him on a leash or in another room until the Trick-or-Treating is over.
  • That said, don't just leave him alone in a back bedroom. He can hear the commotion out front and may go bananas by himself. It might work better to crate him where he can see you.
  • If your dog is still a puppy, keep him with you, leashed, and include him in your activities so he can learn new things.
 Be sure your dog is wearing a collar and ID tag just in case he gets excited and darts out the door when it is opened for visitors.

Enjoy your Halloween!
