Halloween Pet Safety – What You Should Know
Halloween is a lot of fun for lots of people – and their pets! The costumes, parties, treats, haunted houses, and pranks are all part of a recipe to make funny Halloween memories. Who doesn’t want to see a dachshund dressed up like a hot dog, right? But not everyone – human and animal alike – finds the ghouls and goblins so thrilling.
This Halloween season, pet owners can prevent dangerous situations for their pet and be on the lookout for the ways that their pet could find trouble. It’s wonderful to include your pet if you have confidence in their comfort and enjoyment of the holiday, but be aware of the following safety precautions:
Create A Safe Space
Your pet may be a seasoned player at Halloween time, fully capable of answering the bell of trick-or-treaters without any trouble or anxiety. You’ve dressed him or her up plenty of times and gone for walks on Halloween night without problems of any kind from the list above.
However, if you are a pet owner that has an unpredictable pet we advise you to take the path of caution regarding the potential dangers at Halloween. Create a safe space for your pet full of blankets, pillows, soft lighting, water, and some special pet-friendly treats to round out the cozy scene. That way they will be away from the possible dangers associated with Halloween and you can relax knowing that they are safe and comfortable.
