We know fear and anxiety are common in dogs during Halloween with all the new sounds, decorations, and costumed visitors that go on all night! Halloween is going to look slightly different this year but should you receive any trick-or-treaters, here are 5 Halloween tips to help you and your pup enjoy a safe holiday this year!
Make Sure Your Pet is Tagged
Whether it’s a part of a costume or not, make sure your pet has an updated ID tag on them at all times. Dogs get spooked on Halloween too and they have an instinct to run away from whatever spooked them. They may get lost or run out of the door as trick or treats come and go, with so many strangers it can often be scary or stressful!
Keep Candy Out of Reach
Pups often want to snack on candy with you or may even find some laying around to grab, but sugar snacks are very harmful. Chocolate is highly toxic, make sure you keep a special eye on them. Stock up on extra dog treats from our bakery cart to have with you so they can enjoy their own goodies, all Halloween Treats are 25% Off!
Keep Noises Minimal
Doorbells and knocking on the door can be stressful for dogs in general, let alone constantly on Halloween! Try to minimize the noise as best you can if this bothers them. You can try keeping the tv volume louder or radio on to drown out some of the sounds.
Safe Dog Costume
Dressing up your dog for Halloween is the best part! Some dogs enjoy wearing costumes but some may not be comfortable in them depending on the accessories/size of the outfit. We have many to choose from at our stores and will be happy to assist you with one to make your pup the most comfortable! Our Halloween costumes are 25% OFF all month long!
Try CBD or a Snuggle Puppy
If your pup is anxious during Halloween, we recommend any of our CBD products or even a Smartpetlove Snuggle Puppy to help comfort them naturally.
We carry a variety of Pet Releaf CBD products that come in chews, oils, and treats! Our team members are trained to help find the best fit for your pup's needs.
The Snuggle Puppy is an all-natural solution for pet anxiety that can help them through the Halloween season. It soothes pets by mimicking maternal intimacy through a “real-feel” pulsing heartbeat and physical warmth
