Kilo the Pug is invited to a Happy Halloween Party at Purina Pawsway Toronto then to the  Pugoween fundraiser for PugALug Pug Rescue Sunday. He has multiple comfy, funny outfits so we’ll see how he goes. If he gets too stressed we’ll just walk along the waterfront but I think he might actually enjoy Pugoween.

Be Careful

Halloween is such a fun time of year. We all get to dress up and eat (or drink) treats. But it’s important to know that it can be a dangerous and stressful night for dogs.

  • strangers come to the door.
  • unsafe goodies are everywhere.
  • lots of commotion.
  • they may have to wear a costume they are not comfortable in.

Stay safe this Halloween by making sure your dog doesn’t escape out the door or ingest anything they shouldn’t including chocolate, chewing gum or sugar free candy, decorations, or costume pieces (contact a vet or the ASPCA Hotline immediately if they do). Halloween i the seond most common time for dogs to get lost after July 4th and a very common time for poisoning.

If your dogs is Trick or Treating, make sure they only eat safe dogs treats (we recommend our local Bullwrinkles and Barnsdale Farms treats and chews)

Tips to keep your Dog Safe and Happy.

  • Don’t leave your pet unsupervised or in a high traffic area.
  • Do not leave treats or snacks within reach. Kilo will steal chocolates, wrapper and all.
  • Watch the door if you are opening and closing and they are loose.
  • Make sure their tags are up-to-date, detailed and on. Remember to license and microchip your pet and keep current. We are trying a new mobile tracker too this year (more details to come)
  • Choose pet clothing that is safe and fun. Make sure your dog can easily stand, sit, lie down, walk, and use the bathroom at any time if wearing a costume.
  • If there are things sewn onto the outfit, your pet may try to eat them and get really sick.
  • Probably better not to, but make sure if you do take them out that they are wearing reflective collars and gear. Keep them on a leash during Halloween!
  • If your pet doesn’t like getting dressed up, don’t force him or her. Opt for a simple bandana or collar or harness instead

Kilo will be on his leash or in his crate with soft music away from the action while kids are trick or treating. Otherwise I know he might get into mischief as he did in this video httpss://crashthesuperbowl.doritos.com/video/745

  • That is a barrage of adorable costumed doggies. And great tips… some dogs like to dress up and some don’t, just like people!
