5 Halloween Safety Tips for Dogs

Halloween can be a fun time for families and children but not so much for dogs. In fact, Halloween can be dangerous and down right spooky for our four-legged companions.

Here are some safety tips for you and your dog to ensure a fun and safe Halloween.
safety tips for dogs on Halloween

1. Collar and ID, please!

Having a collar and proper ID/Microchip for your dog is a great safety tip for any day but on Halloween dog's can become spooked by the doorbell and sounds of little goblins at your doorstep. Even if your dog isn't a "door darter", doesn't mean it won't happen.

2. Just Say No!

A dog's nose is thousands of times stronger than a humans so keep that bowl of candy up high and out of the reach of furry paws. Food poisoning happens more during Halloween than any other time of year. Learn what to do if you suspect your dog has gotten into some chocolate by visiting our post, Three Things to Know if Your Dog Eats Chocolate.

3. Beware of Hazards!

You've worked really hard on carving that jack-o-lantern so why not keep it outside for your trick-or-treaters to enjoy. Dogs become very curious and their wagging tails and paws can easily knock over a lit pumpkin in your home causing a fire.

4. Costume Safety First!

Many dog owners like dressing up their dogs (us included!) for Halloween. Just make sure it is safe, they can easily move around with it and there are no parts that they can chew or bite off, causing a choking hazard.

5. Stress-Free is the Way to Be!

Having strangers dressed up in costumes showing up at your door can be stressful for your dog. If you find your dog is stressed, move them to a quiet room away from the flurry of activity. This would be a great time to surprise them with a new toy to help keep them calm and distracted.

Upcycle Your Stuff With Molly Mutt Dog Beds

Does your dog's bed match your home décor?

Being a big fan of HGTV's Fixer Upper, our décor has changed a bit over the past year and I am always on the lookout for dog beds and accessories that will go along with it.

When Molly Mutt asked us to review their dog bed duvet and I saw all the modern designs they had, I was thrilled because I actually found a color combo that will go in any room in our house.

Disclaimer: Golden Daily Scoop received a Molly Mutt Duvet Cover from Molly Mutt in exchange for our honest review. We received no other compensation and Molly Mutt is not responsible for the content of this post.

Designed to match your style and give your old stuff a new purpose - this isn't your ordinary pet bed.

Molly Mutt duvet covers come without stuffing, allowing pet owners to upcycle their old clothes, blankets and bedding by stuffing them in the duvet cover.

Upcycle Your Life - Here's How it Works!

Did you know that every year the average person recycles or donates 12 pounds of textiles? The EPA reports that only 15.3% of those textiles are recovered, which means the rest goes to the landfill.

Filling the duvet is a pretty simple process, just gather your old clothes, blankets and pillows, stuff them in the sack and insert into the duvet cover.

This is the "I'm a realist" in dark grey with yellow trim. I love the trendy color combo, it's a nice masculine color for Bruin that goes perfectly with our style.

Bruin is a large golden retriever, weighing close to 90lbs. so it's not always easy finding a bed that he can fit comfortably on. 

As you can see he fit's nicely on the bed. This duvet cover is size "huge" which measures at 36" x 45" x 5".

Made from 100% cotton canvas which is pre-shrunk and washable, this duvet cover is very durable even for this big guy. I love the cotton canvas because you can easily vacuum all the dog hair off the bed which is a lot when you have three goldens like us!golden retriever sleeping on Molly Mutt dog bed
I think it's safe to say Bruin LOVES his new bed and I don't blame him one bit for not wanting to share it!
