· Keep the “chocolate candy and all other treats away from your pets. Chocolate can be poisonous and too much sugar can make them sick.
· Put the dogs up ahead of time so they do not run and bite someone coming to the door as little kids and their costumes/props can scare pets. Also the kids are excited and sometimes yelling. Pets can take this as an alert to protect their home. Also if they get out, they might run off and get lost.
· Pets can get scared and knock over candles so keep them put up. Use the battery operated votive candles if possible.
