Halloween Safety Tips for your Dog

Are you planning to enjoy some Halloween fun with your dog? Make sure it’s a treat for him by observing these Halloween costume safety tips. Whether that fun means an afternoon of costumed photos, a pet parade, or an evening of trick or treating, it’s important to make sure your dog is safe and comfortable in his or her attire.

If your dog is wearing a costume longer than it takes to snap a few photos, be sure to keep these tips in mind:

  • Pass on costumes that are too tight or in any way restrictive.
  • Select a costume that’s appropriate for your weather. It’s still very warm here in October so we’d never select a heavy costume. Even if it’s not hot where you live, watch your dog for signs of heat exhaustion.
  • Avoid costumes that are too long and put your dog at risk for tripping.
  • Avoid costumes that have attachments that he could pull off and choke on or chew.
  • Skip costumes with headgear that interferes with his vision.
  • Use extra high-value treats which can easily be broken into bite-sized bits to encourage your dog as you’re costuming him. (We also use them along with the “watch me” command to capture a photo looking at the camera!)
  • Once the costume is on, get your dog moving to distract him.
  • Select costumes that have a reflective strip if you’ll be out at night or consider adding a lit collar.

 It is with great pleasure to provide a review of Work Webb. I have been using Work Webb for a little over a year and and I could not be more pleased. The office space is beautiful and equipped with everything I need to conduct business and meet with clients. The central downtown location is great as well. Thanks Work Webb for meeting all of my business needs!
