Nashville, TN (PRWEB) October 11, 2007
Halloween is just around the corner and Doggeek.com along with all of us at Splat Productions, LLC want to remind everyone that all of the commotion associated with this holiday can really be frightening for your Dog or cat.
Dogs and Cats develop a routine with their caretaker. With the doorbell consistently ringing and many strangers coming in and out of the house this routine can be thrown into a state of flux, which can actually cause distress and or endanger your beloved pet.
Doggeek.com would like to provide a few tips to keep you and your pet's Halloween a happy and fun time:
- Provide a safe, secure and pleasant environment for your pet inside. Soothing music or a TV show he/she is used to watching will provide a calming distraction to all the chaos happening outside.
- As everyone knows Chocolate is poisonous to canines, but did you know that it is also toxic to cats and ferrets? Keeping all candies away from your pets is the best advice we can give. Not just chocolates are harmful to your pet.
- Keep your pet away from the decorations. As we stated earlier dogs and cats get used to their routine and environment. The candle in the middle of the jack-o-lantern can quickly singe your pets fur.
- As much as many like to dress their dogs and cats up for Halloween do not bring them along for trick-or-treating. Losing your pet, or worse, having them get confused and bite someone can quickly ruin your holiday fun.
- If you do have to venture out with your pet remember to keep them on their leash at all times. With so many people out and about it would be easy for ole rover to get distracted and follow someone else.
- Keep you pet inside. It's so important we had to reinforce this. It is not uncommon for vandalism to take place on Halloween and Black cats are often targets. Keeping your fury friend in doors will ensure their safety. If needed, find a dog boarding facility or dog sitter near you.
Now that we know your loved pet companion will bet taken care of this Halloween what about all of the pets that will be visiting your house with those companions that do not visit Doggeek.com. Well we have thoughts on this too:
- All pets need to be on a leash. For your safety DO NOT open the door if a pet is not on their leash. Simply ask that they restrain their companion before opening the door.
- Try to keep your decorations to a minimum and out of reach of wondering animals. Dogs and Cats can become entangled in various decorations like streamers and banners.
Since you will have all of these treats for the humans that come to the door, why not visit Doggeek.com and look up some pet friendly recipes. Lunch lady Abba would be more than happy to share her Halloween favorites.
Remember if you here any "boof boof's" in the middle of the night, it's probably Ole Rover looking for his treats! Happy Halloween!
