Halloween Safety tips for pets:

It’s a thrill to dress up your pets in cute and scary Halloween costumes. But there are things that you should’ve in your mind for Halloween pets.

Ready-made Outfit: It’s a ready-to-go choice, already tested on pets. Fido’s size easily fits into it and is comfortable.

Breathable DIYs: If handmade or DIY costumes are your choice, sew them easy to wear. Go for soft fabrics with eyes and ears openings, warm but not itching, fit but not tight. 

 Fido-friendly designs: Don’t buy or weave Halloween costumes with too many beads and bells. They look like edibles for dogs, which they might chew fiercely. Pet-friendly costumes are the right choice.

Be lenient to your pet: Your dogs can’t get why the party comes about. If your Fido can’t stand it, don’t torture him. Be lenient and undress your pet immediately. If your pup feels embarrassed before party guests, don’t force him to stay there. 

Stand for your pet:  Don’t leave your pet abandoned during the party. Their costumes may fall or cause discomfort at the time of play or parade. Leaving your pet alone with guests creates anxiety. Have them on a leash and stand for your Halloween pet to explore and enjoy.

Beware of treats: Make your pet stay away from human treats. Sugar treats, caramel apples, chocolates, beverages, etc., are toxic to pets and cause sickness. Trick your pets with some game and reward them with treats.

Pet-friendly zone: Arrange a pet zone at your party which has harmless, pet-proofed things around. Bash out spooky games for the fidos at this kind of spot. Place plenty of water for pooch guests.

Mindful spooky decoration: Don’t place bulbs and other luminous objects where the pet can reach easily. Glitters, jingles, small decors are dangerous for pets. They may get allergic to noise or chew accidentally.
