5. Black Cats
Unfortunately, some people use Halloween as an excuse to commit heinous crimes and get involved in cruel activities. If you own a black cat, please keep them inside and consider putting them in a bedroom for Halloween evening.
6. Walking at Night
If you take your dog trick-or-treating around the neighborhood, be sure they won’t be easily startled by all of the noises, people and decorations. If they get scared in these types of situations, leave your dog at home. If you do take your dog out, use a light-up collar or leash to make sure your pup is easily visible.
A lot of dogs do not appreciate you dressing them up! I know it’s adorable to put your dog in a super cute Halloween costume, but if it causes your dog anxiety, don’t make your dog wear it all night. If there are children around, make sure they refrain from dressing the dog, as there are strangulation hazards with clothing if not put on properly.
8. Exercise Your Dog
Take a long midday walk with your dog before Halloween evening rolls around. Play a lot of fetch or give your dog extra exercise so they will be more tired as the day goes on. They will be less likely to be really energetic or anxious if they had a fun, busy day.
Have a happy howl-o-ween!!
