Stack that candy ya’ll……
It’s that time of year again! During this festive time of year it’s easy to forget pet safety. Here are some things to think about, whether you are taking your pet trick or treating, or just handing out candy to your neighborhood “ghouls and goblins”.
Are you planning on dressing your pet up this year? If you are, please make sure his/her costume is the right size. If you choose something too small, it may harm your pet by constricting airways. If it is too large, it can be a tripping hazard. No matter how cute we want them to be safe.
If you decide to take your pet our trick or treating, be sure they have something reflective. This way other families and vehicles can see them easily. This helps preventing them from getting hit if they are in the road or keeps them from startling small children. Evan if it is the time for scares, we want everyone to have an enjoyable holiday. Always keep your pet on a leash to prevent them from running or jumping on others.
Let Fido Chill……
When handing out candy, be sure your pet is in a safe place. Safe for them, and of course, for your trick or treaters. You don’t want to scare away your guests with a barking pet. Also make sure they are on a leash, as they can sometimes be unpredictable with so much excitement. You wouldn’t want the fun spoiled by your pet knocking down a princess, chasing a ghost, or nipping at a pumpkin. Even as a an accident it can lead to some bad fall out.
If you have an overly aggressive dog, or one that is bothered by frequent visitors to the door, consider letting them stay with a friend who has less traffic. Or even consider boarding them at their favorite local puppy hotel.
No matter what you decide keep these things in mind to keep your holiday safe and fun. Don’t forget to keep an updated pet id tag on your dog! This will help ensure he/she gets safely home no matter what situation arises. From OvernightPetTags.com have a safe and fun filled Halloween!
