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

  • An all-dog Halloween party, or wherever dogs assemble in your area, would probably be the most fun for your pet 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. 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!

VOLKSWAGEN SUPERBOWL AD

When I went to watch this, the screen area said VOLKSWAGEN blocked it due to "COPYRIGHT" reasons. They did not include a link to their site to watch it "legally", so I wonder if it was released for general use.
