Treats are not so sweet

Chocolate in all forms is dangerous to dogs, in fact it can be deadly.  Tin foil and cellophane wrappers are also not good for the digestive system.  Keep treats out of range from your pooch so he doesn't ingest any.  If your dog does get into the treat bag, immediately call your vet. 

Decorations not fit for dogs

Pumpkins, hay and cornstalks are popular for this festive season but if ingested by your dog can cause stomach upset or even worse.  If you are planning on putting candles in your jack o'lanterns, keep them out of range of your pooch for safety's sake.

Costumed canines

If you are dressing your dog up, be sure that your dog is comfortable being in costume.  Many dogs soak up the extra attention, but some dogs can become extra stressed.  Your dog's Halloween costume should fit properly and not restrict your dog's ability to hear, see or breathe.  If your canine is costumed, he should be supervised the entire time he is in costume. 

Trick or Treat - not running out the door

Ensure that your dog does not run out the door when Trick or Treaters come around.  Take the time to leash your pooch or have a space they can stay safely when you are at the door. 

Happy Howl-a-ween!
