Halloween is just around the corner! Children are getting ready to dress up as their favorite super hero or scary monster.
But, what about Fido?
We all know it’s a lot of fun to dress our pets up for any holiday. But consider the fact that masks are frightening enough for dogs conditioned to trust their caregivers; forcing an animal into an uncomfortable or sight-impairing costume is doubly scary!
If you are considering taking your dog trick-or-treating with the family, be aware that Fido will probably not comfortably accept his surroundings. He may growl, snap, or show signs of fear while you are trying to keep an eye on your children. Consider allowing him to stay at home with a special treat, instead.
