Safe Trick-or-Treating For Dogs

Parading around the neighborhood with your pupper wearing an adorable costume is one of the highlights of Halloween, but it’s important to keep some things in mind to ensure everyone’s safety. Follow these rules to keep the good times rolling during your howlin’ Halloween adventure:

  • Trick-or-treat during daylight, if possible. Maximize visibility by bringing your dog around before dark.
  • Use a reflective or light-up leash at night. If you have to trick-or-treat after dark, opt for a high-visibility lead with reflective stitching or a flashing feature to make you and your dog clearly visible to others, especially motorists.
  • Keep your canine’s temperature in mind. It’s important not to overheat your dog on a warm night with a heavy costume and to prevent him from becoming a pupsicle on a cold night.
  • Avoid scary costumes or triggers. Costumes can be downright terrifying, particularly to pups who don’t always understand that humans are dressing up. Don’t force your dog to interact with scary strangers. You don’t want him to nip someone out of fear or be scared to begin with.
  • Leash your dog. Halloween is not the time to test your retriever’s recall. Plenty of people and cars are out and about, many of whom are dressed in attire that can spook a normally stoic sniffer.
  • Don’t feed your four-footer candy. Chocolate is an obvious no-go for dogs, but so are countless other candies that may contain artificial sweeteners that can be toxic to do. Make him his own ghoulish goodies at home, like pumpkin dog treats.
