Will your dog be taking part in Halloween festivities this year? According to a recent PetSmart® survey, one out of every seven pet parents dressed their pets in costumes for Halloween last year. Does this include you?
If you'll be taking your dog along with you for your Halloween fun, you'll want to take some special precautions on this night that can be scary. PetSmart recommends:
- Pets should remain securely leashed and close to their pet parent’s side as they go trick or treating.
- For smaller pets, a backpack carrier may provide the safest way to travel the neighborhood.
- For larger pets, a reflective collar, lead and a lighted ID tag help make your pet more visible to drivers.
Make sure your Halloween--and your dog's--is a treat by playing it safe!
Sigh... with this type of weather, I should be worrying less about Halloween, and more about getting somewhere hot and sunny.. orlando vacations or somewhere tropical sound good right about now..
