Is your pup getting in on the Halloween fun? The experts at Wag!, on on-demand dog walking company, say that it’s important to keep Halloween activities safe and comfortable for dogs. A Halloween dog costume should never cover eyes, ears or noses or be a choking hazard.

While all those sweet treats are exiting for kids – and even some adults -- it’s important to stash such trick-or-treating loot safely away from pets, as common candy ingredients can be toxic to dogs.

You can help ensure a spooktacular Halloween for the entire family, including pets, by taking precautions to keep the celebration hazard-free.
