Are you preparing for the scary? Make Halloween happier for your dog!

Hello folks,

Despite all the fireworks that have been going off lately, we’ve still the excitement of Halloween to look forwards to.

In classes we use any excuse to dress up for puppy socialisation



but it’s good to remember that some dogs find it scary when their favourite humans turn into zombies!



Our top Halloween tips 


1. Think twice before dressing your dog up for Halloween – some dogs don’t mind wearing clothes but many more hate it!



2. Keep ALL the chocolate, candy and sweets well out of reach from inquisitive snoots!


3. If you don’t want trick or treaters knocking your door all night, why not print a copy of our handy sign and pop it on your gate?

4. But if your dog loves visitors coming to the door, make sure they’re on a lead or behind a baby gate for safety – York really doesn’t need a real Hound of the Baskervilles roaming the streets and stealing sweeties.





I’m so excited about sharing pictures from our Halloween themed classes later this week…
