Halloween Safety Tips for Your Dog

  • ID Your Dog:

    Whether your dog is dressed up in a Halloween costume or not, make sure your dog has his ID tag on his collar or has a microchip. If your dog gets spooked by kids in their costumes, he may run away.  At least he can be easily identified.

    Keep your dog secured or away from the door when you are giving out candy to little trick or treaters.

    Don’t leave your dog outside in the yard on Halloween.  Some trick or treaters could tease or injure your dog on Halloween night.

  • Toxic Halloween Candy and Food:


    Dogs will easily sniff out pieces of candy if they are within reach.  They will eat it wrapper and all!  Halloween candy is toxic for your dog.  If your dog gets a hold of any Halloween candy, here are some Symptoms of chocolate poisoning: vomiting, diarrhea, rapid breathing, increased heart rate, and seizures.  Take your pup to the vet immediately if they consume any Halloween treats.

    Raw Pumpkins and Corn:

    If your dog eats uncooked or moldy Halloween pumpkins or corn, they can get very sick.  Small amounts of pumpkin puree is safe for dogs, but stay away from the raw pumpkins.

    Purchase or make some special Halloween Dog Treats so your dog can enjoy some goodies of their own.

  • Halloween Decorations:

    Halloween decorations can be hazardous to your dog.  Keep electrical cords, cobwebs, and hanging décor up high enough and secured so your dog can’t reach them.  Your dog could chew on those “fun looking” cords and get electrocuted.

    Glow Sticks:

    Keep glow sticks away from dogs.  Luckily, most glow stick liquid is non-toxic, but can still make your dog very sick.

  • Unfamiliar Faces in Costume:

    Halloween costumes make familiar people look very different to your dog.  Be aware that your new spooky look may frighten them!

    When we had a Halloween party, my dog, Bastian, didn’t recognize us and went right into a seizure.  I felt horrible!  We now keep him in a secure and quiet area during Halloween events.
