Do dogs love Halloween? Maybe some dogs do. And some dogs enjoy being around a lot of kids, but others don't. Keep that in mind, before you decide to include your dog in your Halloween celebration. If you do include him, here are some dog-safe tips:
- An all-dog Halloween party, wherever dogs assemble in your neighborhood, would be the most fun and, probably, the safest place for you and your pet on Halloween.
- If your dog accompanies you Trick-or-Treating or stays home and greets Trick-or-Treaters at the door, keep your dog leashed.
- If your dog is aggressive or shows aggression, take him away from others at this time. If he shows fear or barks a lot when he sees costumed youngsters or adults, take him home and keep him away from others.
Don't allow your dog to be approached until others, especially children, know how to approach her. If that seems okay, have a bag of healthy dog treats handy, in case the kids want to give her a treat. Don't let your pet accept other food from anyone.
Have a happy and safe Halloween with your pets!
