Soon we will have ghosts and goblins coming to our doors for treats. In a little over a week, it will be Halloween. This can be a fun or scary time. I wanted to write about ways we can be safe and have fun with our furry family members.
Please remember to keep all treats for humans out of reach of our canine companions. We to make sure all chocolate, raisins, and sugar free treats are put up. These are especially deadly to our doggies.
Big decorations in yard can be frightening to our canine companions. Decorations that talk, move or light up can be “spooky” to our doggies. I spend the weeks or days following up to Halloween walking my dogs by these decorations first during the day then moving to evening time.
Before night falls on Halloween consider taking your canine companion on an extra long walk so they will be tired and more relaxed. Setting up a quiet and safe area away from all activity may benefit them. Make sure they are microchipped and have tags on their collars. Check their costumes to make sure they are not blocking their eyes or ears. Take them with you if they enjoy walking with lots of activity. Consider pulling a wagon if you think they might become tired.
Hand out dog treats for all the furry friends who may tag along with their hooman kids. You can make yummy Halloween treats for your furry family members. One last piece of advice make sure to enjoy your time with your canine companion and make lots of fun memories.
Have a Barktastic week. Remember to give your furry family members lots of attention you are their entire world. ~Charley
