#1 Candy (especially chocolate) is not good for dogs
Chocolate contains theobromine which is toxic to your dog. According to the Merck Veterinary Manual, one ounce of milk chocolate per pound of body weight is potentially lethal. Sugar-free candies containing xylitol are harmful too.
Call your vet or ASPCA Poison Control (888) 426-4435 if your pet needs help.
#2 Jack O'Lanterns are not for your pumpkin
Decorative pumpkins and gourds are not to be eaten. Candle-lit jack o'lanterns can easily be knocked over by a curious dog and cause a fire.
#3 Party Poopers are OK
Even the friendliest dogs get anxious as trick or treaters parade past your home. Spooky noises, loud knocks, and doorbells can be overwhelming. Make sure your dog has a safe, quiet area to rest away from the chaos.
#4 Costume optional. ID required.
Dress up your pet only if you are sure it's fun for them. Costumes should not restrict breathing or vision. Some pets just prefer to wear their birthday suit! Always make sure your pet has proper tags and microchip - spooked pets can get lost.
#5 Stay safe on potty breaks at night
When nature calls for your pet on Halloween night...Stay visible by wearing lights on collars or harnesses. Don't leave your pet unattended in the backyard. And, be wary of pranksters on the street.
