HALLOWEEN IS ALMOST HERE
I know Simba gets very excited on Halloween. If you take your pooch out at night make sure the costume, collar, and/or leash is reflective. Dogs can get spooked at night if approached by a masked individual. Know your dog and don’t put him in a bad situation where he might end up biting someone or trying to run away and get loose. Simba loves going to doggie costume events in daylight. She is great around all kinds of other animals so I find Halloween events specifically for her. She does not do well around young children or people dressed up in animal costumes like a big Clifford. It spooks her and she barks like she is ready to devour them. I don’t think she would but I’m not going to take the chance or put her through such an ordeal. Therefore, I do not take her out on Halloween night when trick-or-treaters are out. Also, please no candy for your pup especially chocolate! Carry special treats for them in your pocket. You can also carry healthy stuff like baby carrots, or Sweet potato Chews. If you want to give out doggie treats to visiting dogs, check out our TREAT RECIPES? A great idea for a pet costume is using an old stuffed animal. If you have a stuffed animal about the size of your pup, cut along the underside (belly) from about 6″ from neck down. Remove the stuffing and cut open the face mouth area to fit your pup’s head in. You want the face and/or head portion of the stuffed animal to lay on your pup’s head as in Simba’s picture above. The costume will lay over pup’s back, you can sew on some sort of tie or velcro under the chest area to keep the costume still. Stay safe and keep your pet safe.
