How to Keep Your Dog Calm on Halloween

Even if you have a fence, don’t leave your pet in the yard on Halloween night, find the best room in your home that is far from the doorbell or main door to decrease noise from trick-or-treaters and another noisy and loud sound. Your lovely dog should be kept in a safe, cozy place so he or she may lie down and unwind, maybe in your bedroom that all windows are closed.

To make sure your lovely pet (dogs) is comfortable in the room even without you beside him or her you can do these things:

1 Play Relaxing Music – You can turn on your speaker set it up to a volume that will help block out the sounds but not too loud for dogs to keep calm and relax. Play music that is relaxing so that it won’t shock your dog or aggravate their noise phobia. You can check some relaxing playlists on youtube.

2 Set-Up a Comfortable Bed and Blankets – Having a comfy bed and pile of blankets where they can hide or relax is very important to keep your dog calm during a noisy spooky night of Halloween.

3 Leave Your Dog with Treats – To entertain your dog while you are busy entertaining your guest, make sure to leave them with their favorite tasty treats (advisable the one that is chewable for a long time) in the room, it will make your lovely pet busy for a couple of hours.

4 Bring There Favorite Toys With Them – To make sure your dog won’t get bored bring their favorite toys with them. It will also serve as their companion if you cant stay with your dog inside the room.

Before leaving your dog in the room make sure that all windows and doors where he/she can escape are closed. Also, check for the things that can hurt your lovely pet such as electric sacket sharp objects and so on.

Make it clear to your guest that your dog’s room is off-limits and that noise levels in the area should be kept to a minimum. If your dog doesn’t mind the loud noises and the volume of guests in your house so you let him/her stall around make sure to notify your guest, not to pet and give any food (especially scrap food) to your dog.

Keep Halloween Candies Away

It is given that during Halloween your kitchen and lounge area is full of tasty Halloween candies, however, candy may be fatal to dogs so make sure to keep it away from them.

If your dog accidentally ate any type of candies especially chocolate (without the wrappers or stick) the chances are he/she might experience stomach ache, vomiting, diarrhea, and worst death.

Don’t Let Your Dog Play Around The Decor (Pumpkins)

Dogs are naturally adventurous and curious, so make sure to not let them play in your yard or any place in your house that has Halloween decor. A lighted pumpkin can easily knock over by your dog while running and it might get them burned or start a fire in your house. Other decors might chew by your dogs that can cause blockages that are fatal.

To avoid any mishaps, keep pumpkins out of reach or in a different room from your dog. Also, make sure to stay and focus on your dog while they are outside for pee and poop so they won’t chew accidentally any of your decors.

Advice: If you are setting up or already set up your Halloween decor, it is best to keep your lovely dogs away from it. Make them stay in a room that is safe for them.
