5 Tips to Keep Your Pet Safe this Halloween

October is an exciting month. The trees are changing colors, the weather is nice and cool, and if you're Canadian, you get to celebrate Thanksgiving. (November for my American friends) But aside from that, October 31'st - one of my favorite holidays - HaLlOwEeN!

  Halloween Tips to Keep Your Pet Dogs Safe and Happy I admit, I love Halloween. I love picking out costumes for my kids and my pets. I love taking them out walking around the neighborhood knocking on doors. I love the whole experience. BUT... for us pet owners, there is much more than just children to worry about on Halloween. There are some dangers that come with October 31'st when it comes to the safety of our pets, so today, I am going to share 5 tips to keep your pet safe this Halloween.

1. Candy/Chocolate

I can't stress this enough. Every year there are so many warnings saying how dangerous chocolate is for pets. Yet still every year dogs and cats are getting rushed to the vet because they found the stash of Halloween candy. Lets face it, it can happen to any of us. You know that whole better safe than sorry line? Don't underestimate your pet, and the length they may go to in order to find that candy bag. Just be on the safe side and keep it put high up where you KNOW there is no chance of an accidental candy bag burglary.

2. Halloween Means Lots of Kids Knocking on Doors All Night Long

It is best to keep your pets away from the door when you answer it. Some costumes might trigger a fear in your dog that you didn't even know they had. And it is quite easy for a cat to slip out while you are admiring the kiddies costumes. So best to keep your pets put in a different room for a few hours during Halloween night.

3. It Is Always Recommended to Leave Your Dogs at Home if You Have Kids of Your Own That You Will Be Accompanying on Halloween Night

I know it is tempting to put a little costume on your pooch and bring them door to door with you, but it really isn't the best idea. There are lots of scary things to a dog on Halloween. Not just the costumes, but those witches, skeletons and goblins people use to decorate. Especially the ones that make noise.

4. If You Use Candles in Your Jack-O-Lanterns, Make Sure Your Pet Cannot Get to Them.

You could be risking a burn, or some singed fur.

5. Finally, Do Not Leave Your Dog Out in the Yard During Halloween

People are cruel... and can do some pretty scary things during Halloween, so it is best to not leave your dog unattended. Halloween Tips to Keep Your Pet Dogs Safe and HappyHalloween for pets isn't all bad though. If you are out shopping for a costume for your pet, do your best to find something lightweight. Something your pet isn't going to mind too much. Don't keep their costume on for too long, and just keep their comfort at the top of your list. And while your pet won't be able to join your kids (and you) while muching out on Halloween goodies - there are some yummy Halloween treats you can find at your local pet store to include your pets in the fun.

Why Did I Wait So Long?

I should have bought these years ago. Easy to use, easy to clean, and tons of headaches saved in trying to keep a blanket or covering on the car seat when taking the dogs on the trails, camping, etc. Highly recommend.

Terrific product at a great price

I am beyond pleased with everything about my new 4Knines split rear back seat cover! The fabric is soft and attractive. The fit in my 2018 CR-V is perfect. Dirt just brushes off it, and water beads and wipes right off. It couldn't easier to put on and take off. This is a wonderful product at a great price.

XL Back seat bench cover

Love our new purchase from 4Knines. We were looking for a back seat cover that would fit our new 2017 F250 crew cab and this one fits perfect. Highly recommend for those wishing to maintain their seats. The material is excellent quality and it’s quick and easy to put on and take off. We also have the bucket seat covers from this company for our 2015 Yukon Denali and have gotten a lot of use out of them over the last couple of years and they are still in excellent condition and so are our seats. Thanks 4Knines for a great product!

great product, sturdy, XL great fit for new 4Runner, cleans easy

I was worried this product might not hold up since one I recently purchased from another company ripped w/in 2 weeks from my 30lb Aussie pulling on it when trying to get into the back. I have been extremely pleased with the XL cargo liner. The straps are much more durable with more stitching and better fabric. I have a 50 lb Border Collie mix and 30 lb Aussie. They have already put the liner to the test!!! I have used it numerous times in the short 2 weeks I have had it. The XL was a great choice for my new 2017 4Runner. It allows me to strap to the front headrests and protect the whole back of the SUV. The skirt protects the bumper. It is too long when I only strap to the middle seats but I just fold under the extra fabric and still have the skirt. I use the full length most of the time and reason I got the XL. The fabric is sturdy and protected the back when the dogs spilled water. So far I have used it to haul bags of topsoil, go on a camping trip and visit family. I purchased the liner mainly to protect the back b/c we have flyball practice every week and tournaments every month. That's a lot of in/out for equipment, doggies and crates. I was very glad to see the edges fold up to protect the wheel wells. I am extremely pleased with this product and sorry I wasted money on my first purchase from other company. I have already recommended the liner to fellow flyball teammates. Shipping was great also. I ordered on a Sunday and it arrived Sat. So far I have just swept the dirt off and used a shop vac. Cleans up well and easy.
