[Click on image for audio] - Halloween is that time of year when
many children and even some adults like to dress up in costumes
that make them look different and often scary. They may even take
on the frightening persona of the character they are pretending to
Now think about Halloween and scary looking people from your pet's perspective. Is it likely that they will find groups of people behaving weirdly and trying to scare one another a pleasant experience? Odds are most dogs and cats will want to run and hide. Do your pets a favor this Halloween and keep them inside and safe.
You and your children also want to be cautious when out trick-or-treating as you may encounter dogs that will find you frightening which may cause them to bark and growl at you. Make sure you and your children know how to safely interact with strange dogs before venturing out.
