6 Tips to Keep Your Dog Safe this Halloween

19/10/2021 - Pet Safety


Halloween is great fun but it can be a very stressful time for pets. The sound of bangers and fireworks have been going off for some time now here in Dublin, spooking animals and humans alike! If these loud noises distress your pet, read on for our top six tips to help reduce their anxiety at this time of year.


  1. If you can, create a safe internal room, with a soundproof box. YouTube has some great tutorials on how to create these boxes. 

  2. Put on music to mask the loud noises. Reggae works well!

  3. Give your dog chews and enrichment activities

  4. Calming treatments such as Pet Remedy or Adaptil work well for some dogs

  5. If your dog's anxiety levels are very high, talk to your vet about medication

  6. Escape! Head to the mountains to get away from the noise but hang out in your car so that you don't run the risk of your dog making a run for it!
