Lady Bee's Halloween Safe Tips For You And Your Pets

  • An all-dog Halloween party, wherever dogs assemble in your area would probably be the most fun for her and for you.
  • If your pet accompanies you Trick-or-Treating or stays home and greets Trick-or-Treaters at the door, keep him leashed.
  • If your pet is aggressive or shows aggression at any time, 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 or away from the door.
  • Don't allow your pet to be approached until others, especially children, know how to approach her.
  • Don't let your pet accept food from anyone, until you have inspected it, or not at all. Don't allow him sweets of any kind, especially chocolate.

Have a happy and safe Halloween with your pets!
