Dog Costumes at Costume Craze
My dogs would think I’m crazy, but we did get Gretta the German Shepard to wear a Just Draperies Shirt for Helser Brothers at the last workshop. Halloween can be really hard on your pets.
I found a Halloween Safety Guide on line and here are a few of the tips, for more tips just go to www.halloween-safety.com
- As much as your dog or cat may beg for some of your Halloween candy, always remember that chocolate is deadly to them in any amount. There’s a chemical that naturally occurs in chocolate that they can not tolerate.
- The wrappers, such as tin foil, can get stuck in your pets digestive tract and make them ill or cause death. There are plenty of recipes for making home made dog and cat treats, you can always make them on a Halloween theme if you want to make something special for your pet.
- Large dogs can have lethal tails when it comes to wagging them. I’ve seen a German Shepherd that we used to have clear a coffee table in two seconds flat when she got excited. Don’t leave any lighted candles or Jack-O-Lanterns where they could be knocked over by a swinging tail or by a curious cat. Not only could your pet start a fire but they could severely burn themselves in the process.
