If your pet gets stressed out by festivities, use the following tips to reduce anxiety and help keep them calm.
- Exercise Exercise your pets early in the day. The more tired out they are when night falls and trick-or-treaters start showing up at your door, the more likely they will be to remain settled down throughout the night.
- Play Distract your pet with a new game or chew toy. They will quickly start to focus on their treat so intently that they will forget about the commotion around them.
- Stay Calm Pets are very perceptive. Teach your pets that Halloween is nothing to be stressed out about by speaking in a low volume and remaining calm and in control — you’ll likely see that they quickly follow suit.
