  • Is your pet going to be participating in trick or treat? Then here are some key guidelines:

o   Know your pet’s personality, i.e. are they energetic, shy or mellow?

o   Keep them safe during trick-or-treating: secure your pet’s costume and consider reflective gear like a leash or a costume such as this skeleton that glows in the dark,have an adult hold the leash at all times since kids may be distracted and let go.

Make sure you are know these tips for avoiding Halloween hazards for your pet.
