Keep all treats in a spot where your pet can’t reach. Be careful with costumes. Not all pets enjoy wearing a costume. Make sure your pet is comfortable and watch for signs of anxiety. They should have no obstructions blocking their sight, no dangling objects they can swallow, make sure they can easily…
