Avoid Uncomfortable Pet Costumes

As much as we enjoy dressing our pets up, they may not enjoy it themselves. If you notice your pet seems uncomfortable in their costume, make sure to take them out of it immediately. Look for costumes that don’t construct movement, hearing, or the ability to breathe, bark, or meow.

Keep Pets Confined And Inside

With the doorbell constantly ringing and Trick-Or-Treat commotion from kids, it can be very scary and unfamiliar for our fur babies. Be sure to keep your pets in a secure room away from the front door. Some animals are known to jolt out the door if they become anxious.

Wear Your ID

If your pet does happen to escape, you may have a hard time finding them on such a hectic night. Making sure your dog is wearing the proper tags and updated identification will almost guarantee they’ll be found and returned.

Watch The Decorations

Carved Jack-O-Lanterns are a fun and festive sight, but pets can easily knock them over and start a fire. Also be cautious of Halloween plants like pumpkin and decorative corn as they can produce stomach discomfort if consumed by Fluffy or Scruffy.

Hide The Halloween Candy

As good as chocolate may taste, it can be lethal for dogs and cats. Halloween candies containing artificial sweetener can also be very poisonous for them. Store your candy in a safe and out of reach place so your pets don’t stand a chance getting into any. We definitely don’t want them getting sick on the carpet!

If your pet happens to have an accident on the carpet, the trick is STAINMASTER Carpet Pet Stain Remover. I purchased it at my local Target in the cleaning aisle and it has worked wonders in my home.

It lifts away tough pet stains and eliminates odors, and it doesn’t leave a sticky residue like other cleaners that attract dirt. My favorite thing is it’s ability to get rid of odors within minutes.

Not only does it clean the stains, but protects your carpet against future stains. It also leaves behind an invisible shield to repel dirt to protect against re-soiling. When Maxwell had an accident on my favorite rug, I was devastated the stain wouldn’t come out. However, STAINMASTER came to the rescue and my rug is now free of stains. I recommended it to all my doggy moms, and they LOVE the product as well.

This Halloween, Maxwell and I are staying proactive and clean with STAINMASTER Carpet Pet Stain Remover.

  1. This will be our first Halloween with our new dog, Gryffindor. He barks at the TV if he hears the doorbell, so I will definitely keep him away from the door that night like you suggested. I didn’t even think of it, but it makes so much sense! Thanks so much for sharing these tips. 🙂 #client

  2. These are great tips! I also have a gorgeous black cat like Maxwell and they are actually in the most danger because of the superstitions around them. I make sure to keep my kitty upstairs during Halloween so I know he can’t get out because I might not see him again if he does. People are awful sometimes and it’s our job to keep our fur babies safe!
    On a lighter note, that Stainmaster spray looks like a lifesaver. I have called the carpet cleaners many a time when my kitty has decided that he’s too good for the litter box or eaten something that he shouldn’t and I can’t completely get the stain (or smell!) out myself. If I could easily clean up the mess myself, that would be great! I’ll have to get some and see if it really works!
