Halloween is not cancelled, Houstonians will just be celebrating it differently this year! For many that means creating their Halloween magic at home. Although Halloween is filled with light-hearted tricks and treats, it’s important to keep safety in mind for every member of the family—including your pets. Halloween can pose a number of potential safety hazards for dogs, who tend to experience high levels of stress due to the hustle and bustle of the holiday.
This Halloween, we want to highlight three reasons why you should consider stress free boarding at Meadowlake Pet Resort & Training Center, so you can both enjoy this spooktacular night with peace of mind.
Keep your pet away from harmful Halloween candy and food. The candy bowl is for spooky humans only, not scruffy or fluffy pooches. Several popular Halloween treats are toxic to pets. Chocolate in all forms—especially dark or baking chocolate—can be very dangerous for dogs, and sugar-free candies containing the sugar substitute xylitol can cause serious problems in pets. Avoid the worry of dropped treats, open trash bins, or curious children giving away their bounty and board your pet at Meadowlake where they are sure to only get treats safe and specially made for them.
Don’t worry about destroyed decorations and wires. While a carved jack-o-lantern certainly is festive, pets can easily knock over decor or might even be curious to give festive items a taste. While popular Halloween plants such as pumpkins and decorative corn are considered relatively nontoxic, avoid stomach upset and destroyed ghouls and ghosts by boarding your put away from all the fright night decorations.
Provide a calm space for your pet. Animals can get stressed with the hustle and bustle of a costumed family and large or moving Halloween decorations. But, it doesn’t have to be that way! You could bring your dog to Meadowlake Pet Resort October 30 or Halloween morning. This way your dogs can be in a safe environment and they can relax and have fun playing with other dogs during the day, and then sleep soundly all night. And to your dog, it’s like a mini puptacular vacation. There are absolutely no crazy decorations, only pup approved costumes, and the quiet and calm of our relaxing facility.
Halloween, and all the spooky fun that accompanies the holiday, is best enjoyed when the entire family is safe and happy. Give us a call to book your pup’s Halloween reservation today! Call, 713 – 413 – 1633!
