Halloween top Tips for Dog Safety
Tricks and Treats: A Canine-Friendly Guide to Halloween Safety
Halloween is a time of spooky fun, costumes, and treats. But while we humans revel in the festivities, it can be a stressful and even dangerous time for our four-legged friends. Here at Pet Parlour, we’re committed to ensuring that your pets enjoy a safe and happy Halloween. Here are some top tips to keep your dog safe this spooky season.
- The Treats that Trick: Keep the Sweets Away
Chocolate and xylitol, a sweetener found in many sugar-free sweets, are toxic to dogs. Make sure to keep your Halloween sweets well out of reach and educate children about the dangers of feeding sweets to pets.
Opt for any of our dog-friendly treats options to include your pup in the festivities.

- Dress to Impress, Not to Stress: Costume Caution
If you’re dressing up your dog, make sure the costume is comfortable and doesn’t restrict movement, vision, or breathing. Always supervise your dog while they’re in costume keeping them away from bonfires and candles!
- Silence is Golden: Noise and Strangers
The constant ringing of the doorbell and the appearance of strangers in costumes can be stressful for dogs. Consider setting up a quiet space for your dog away from the front door if you think the festivities might upset them.
Tried and tested the use of calming products like Holistic Hounds Calm K9
or their lavender-infused Calm & Balmy spray can help ease anxiety.
A favourite here at The Pet Parlour is Hemp Heros CBD Oil It will take the edge off even the most anxious dogs.
- Light Up the Night, Safely: Decor Dangers
Candles and electric decorations can be hazardous. Make sure they are placed where your dog can’t knock them over or chew on cords.
Opt for battery-operated candles to minimise fire risks.
- Tag, You’re It: Identification
With the increased foot traffic and open doors, the risk of your dog escaping is higher. Make sure your dog’s identification tags and microchip information are up-to-date.
Check out our personalised ID tags that can be engraved with your contact details. We can post ID Tags to your home if desired
