Can we agree that October has been tough... the days shorter, the UK's economy tanked, inflation is super high, and Twitter has a new owner!
Aside from this, October is one of the best times to be a dog dad. Why?
Halloween of course. The time when you get to put your best pal in costume to look bad ass! Not that you needed an excuse anyway.
Beware though, this season is also known for its loud bangs and flashing lights: fireworks. Although amazing to us, fireworks can make our furrimals turn white like a ghost. No pun intended.
Here's my top tips to keep your pup calm:
- Draw blinds or curtains
- Keep doors and windows closed
- Stay close to your pup, provide comfort if they get spooked
- Keep them entertained / or just let them sleep if thats what they want to do
See you next time.
