Everyone loves a little Halloween scare! Right?
Not so much. My pooches big and small are not fans of the frightful night. Dogs can get anxious with the sounds of the night and disguises people are wearing. It is best to keep your pets confined on the spooktacular night. Chocolate can be lethal to your dog so do be mindful with your trick or treat bag around Old Yeller!
If you are fortunate to have that great neighborhood for trick or treating , here are some things to remind your Tweens & Teens as they head out.
* Carry a flash light.
* Travel in packs or the buddy system is always a great idea.
* Choose streets with sidewalks and stay away from busy roads.
* Masks hinder your sight so opt for face makeup and where light colors if possible.
Having parties has become a great alternative to traditional trick or treating. Kids can still enjoy candy, crafts, games and fun in the safety of a supervised area. Check out Pinterest for great party ideas.
When all is said and done be sure to launder the kids costumes before packing away. You may not see it but they are sure to have food on them that will only stain with time. After 20 years my children still pull from our 'dress up' container that holds a mix of hand made and store bought costumes and accessories.
