Happy Howl-O-Ween! Tips for celebrating the 31st with your dog

By 4Knines Staff. | Holidays
22 Halloween puppy Halloween isn't just for kids! Our four-legged best friends can benefit from some extra laughs, hugs and treats too. Whether you throw a doggie costume party or a chow-down contest, curl up with your dog for a movie or pass out candy together, spending extra time with your dog on this holiday that is known for causing frights will help keep the anxiety for him/her at bay, and give you a chance to spend some quality time with your pooch. Here are some ideas for celebrating the 31st with your dog: Doggie Costume "Paw-ty"- The jury is still out on this one! Dressing pets in costumes is fun for many, but some would rather not. If dressing up is your thing, consider throwing a doggie costume party and inviting your dog's friends from around the block to join in for a dog photo booth, dog games and dogs treats. Our Pinterest board is full of great ideas for throwing a dog "paw-ty," including free printables for the photo booth and ideas for dog games! If you're not one for pet costumes, don't skip the party! Consider a colorful doggie bowtie or bandanna or a simple party hat. (Disclaimer: If you dress your pet in a costume, be sure he/she likes it. It shouldn't cause them stress, constrict breathing, or impede movement or vision.) Safe Dog Treats- It's only natural to let our dogs join in on the fun of Halloween treats, but it's also important to remember that human candy, like chocolate is not safe for dogs. Instead a safe, homemade recipe that looks like the real thing can be a good alternative. For example, doggie candy cornpeanut butter/pumpkin bones and iced biscuits. Or just stock up on bones and doggie jerky you already know they like. Take it a step further and invite some other dogs over for a chow-down contest. (Disclaimer: Be sure to keep discarded candy wrappers out of reach of pets, as they can be choking hazards and dangerous if swallowed.) Scary Movie Night- Some dogs can get overwhelmed by all the hustle and bustle of Halloween night. If that's the case for yours, skip handing out candy and curl up with your family for a scary movie night. You might choose a dog-themed movie, or pick your Halloween favorite, just as long as it won't truly frighten your pet. Make some dog-friendly treats and enjoy a laid-back evening! Check out our Happy Howl-O-Ween Pinterest board for more fun tips! Picture taken by FamilyDobes

EXCELLENT SEAT COVER

We liked the first cover so much that a few days later we purchased a second one. The cover installs very, very easily, fits and covers the rear seat and the back of the front seats of our Subaru Tribeca perfectly, has flaps that cover the door-side edges of the rear seat, and stays perfectly in place. Spilled or tracked water beads up on the material and can be easily wiped off. At first our dog did tend to slide just a little on the new cover, but he soon learned to stand, sit, and lay just as well as he did before on the uncovered seat. The hammock portion seems like it might provide some little bit of protection in a sudden stop (our guy will chew apart any "doggie seat belt" type of restraint in very short order - so that option is out of the question for us). As to keeping him out of the car front-area - well, our long-legged Standard Poodle has no problem in still looking closely out the front windshield by putting his front feet on the center console - straddling the hammock - with no problem whatsoever. But we did discover that having the hammock in place does allow us to safely keep his water bottle and dish, his leash, and an old towel on the floor under the hammock - where he can no longer get at them (especially the leash and towel) to chew on them. All in all, an excellent seat cover.

My furbabies don't like leather seats!!!! But they love this seat cover!!!

Very hard to find a split bench seat cover at a reasonable price, this one fit the bill. Easy to install, very durable and looks to be easy to clean. Wanted something that would protect the leather seats and was pet friendly (hate it when the material of regular seat covers snags toenails and collars). I don't think I will have to buy another for many years!!!

My Doodle approves!

Received on time, fits great and easy to install. Color is a great match. So far, so good. Durability? Time will tell. It appears to be well constructed.

great cover

This is actually a replacement for my original 4 knines cover which was 4 years old. I used it daily (bringing my pup to work with me) and washed it weekly, so the backing finally started to flake apart and come off. This newer version is easier to put over the headrests, great improvement in the strap and closures. Also the best improvement is the side flaps, the old cover didn't have these. These flaps help to catch the dirt from dogs feet when they are jumping up into the car, instead of it going on the side of the seat.
