1. Make sure their collar and leash are secure, many dogs if scared can wiggle out of loose fitting collars
2. Invite another adult to help you keep an eye on both your kids and your dog
3. Bring some water and treats to give to your dog
4. Make sure they know the leave it command so they don't eat dropped candy
5. Keep Fido next to you, don't let him walk too far ahead of you. Some children who are trick or treating may be afraid of dogs
6. Remember your poop bags! Stepping in dog poop while trick or treating will ruin the fun for any kid
7. Take a flashlight with you
It's only October and Halloween isn't even here yet but people are starting to plan where they are going to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas.
We are now accepting pet sitting reservations for the months of November and December so if you know you will be visiting family over the holidays book your fur kids care this month to guarantee your spot with Housebound Hounds.
Have some fun this Halloween with your dog and family and support a great cause at the same time!
