Celebrate a Pet-Friendly Halloween

Happy Halloween! Halloween can be a fun holiday for the entire family - including your pets! Whether you have a dog, cat, bird or fish, there are ways to included your family pet in your holiday celebration (safely).  Here are a few tips to keep in mind today.

Pet-Friendly Halloween Tips:

  • Avoid Lighting Real Candles - Every Halloween party has fun, festive decorations, but make sure that yours are pet friendly! You should avoid lighting real candle flames. You don’t want your parrot, dog or cat to knock into the candle.

  • Decor with Dual Functionality - Give your dog a bone to celebrate! Not only are bones spooky for Halloween, your pet will LOVE the treat.

  • Choose Pet-Friendly Costumes - Not all pets love to wear costumes. Make sure that your dog, cat or other pet is comfortable, can see clearly, and can move around freely while wearing a costume. While we love to have our pets in character, you want to keep their health and safety in mind first and foremost.

  • Keep Pets Away from Open Doors - Chances are there will be a lot of foot traffic around your home today. Keep pets from running or flying outdoors by keeping them in another room or by setting up a safety gate. Keep windows closed, too!
