Halloween can be a tricky (get it?) time for dog owners and a terror for our fur babies. Fireworks, trick-or-treaters and the return of dark nights can all pose problems for our pooches, but it doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom (har har). Let us look at turning this time into a TREAT…
Fire-works are fun for children but the constant bangs night after night cause tremendous stress for our poor fur children and indeed their pawrents… but we have a solution!
YuCALM One-A-Day natural, scientifically proven ingredients help your dog cope with stress. They’re ideal for pets who are fearful of fireworks, other dogs, strangers, travel or being left alone.
Alternatively, you could try Animology Paws and Relax Spray, a soothing lavender formula that helps calm and relax your dog, reduce odours and keep your dog’s coat fresh, clean and healthy between washes.
Training treats (what Halloween is all about right?)
Want to teach your dog a new trick? High value treats are the answer! If you need help with finding the right high value treat check out our training treats section. Also don’t forget to check out our ‘tricks for treats’ competition online to be in with a chance of winning £50 worth of treats (more details below)!
Long-lasting chews can help keep your dog relaxed as they focus on the delicious chew instead of what is going on around them! Our favourites can be found here:
Pumpkin seeds are known as ‘Power Seeds’ as they are excellent for skin, coat, soothing digestion and may even help protect your dog against intestinal parasites and worms – not to mention they are another great distraction!!
K9 Connectables are dog toys designed to engage, stimulate, and entertain your canine friend for longer than your average dog toys! They utilize your dog's natural instincts to hunt and work for food, challenging them to unlock the treats inside
Dogs love to lick and engage with food, with increasing licking encouraging the release of endorphins which relaxes and satisfies your pet. A simple yet innovative range of effective boredom busting solutions, the LickiMat collection is perfect for spreading with your pet’s favourite treat or food encouraging them to merrily lick away. This keeps them satisfied, occupied and engaged in a healthy and stimulating activity to improve their wellbeing and ensure a rewarding and beneficial challenge they’ll keep coming back to for more
