    Default Halloween Safety Tips for Dogs

    Happy Halloween All!!

    Just wanted to toss this up as we can never be too careful with our loved ones.


    Did you know that besides the 4th of July, Halloween is the time of year that more dogs are lost? Here are some tips we want to share to help keep you and your dog safe.

    Chocolate, raisins and artificial sweeteners are toxic to dogs
    Make sure your stash of treats is out of reach of your dogs.

    Secure your dog before opening the door for trick- or-treaters
    Just the number of times the doorbell rings can cause emotions from fear, over-protectiveness and aggressiveness

    Costumes can scare your dog
    Even if your dog knows a person in normal clothing, a costume can be an entirely different story. If you sense any fear or apprehension in your dog do not let the person approach. This is made easier because you have your dog on a leash, right? Now if your dog is wearing a costume and is uncomfortable with it, he may act out with others, so again, keep him under control. If you are going door to door in your neighborhood, be careful of their dogs as well.

    Unfortunately, the reality is that there are people (OK, let me say MONSTERS may they burn in hell!) who kill and abuse dogs out there and on Halloween black dogs and cats are prime targets. I donít want to be an alarmist but this is the reality.

    So remember these tips and use them. With a little bit of preparation, awareness and caution, you can keep your dogs, your family and neighbors safe and enjoy all the fun of Halloween!

    Good tips... Thanks

    I'll also add to be careful when walking your dog through the neighborhood during the next few days... candy/chocolate are often dropped and hidden in the grass, and can be bullyvacuumed up quickly if we are not paying attention.

    We never get trick-or-treaters because our driveway is long, steep and has many dark corners! When I'm walking Ruggles down town the next few days I will watch for dropped treats!
