Spooky! Yes, Halloween can be spooky…for cats and dogs too. So lets try and keep them calm and safe this Halloween. How do we do that? Easy!
1. The tasty chocolates and sweets collected during trick or treat on the night of Halloween sure is Yummy, to us and to our dogs as well. We tend to believe that animals know what is good or bad for them. Most dogs LOVE chocolate, but it is very toxic for most of them, especially dark or baking chocolate. So toxic that it can even cause death. Therefore, the first rule of the night of Halloween, and every other day, is to keep chocolates and sweets away from our pooches.
2. Sweet wrappers should go to the garbage, not on the floor or the table where our pooches can get it. We call our pets “furry babies” because they are just like infants. What they see and like they chew on and if ingested, they may choke. So the second rule is to keep the garbage in the garbage.
3. Trick or treat….the door bell is ringing, and strangers, scary strangers, small and big strangers coming to the door. The cat is already under the sofa and the dog barking like crazy, maybe trying to attack or just thinking that it’s been over an hour since the last walk and its time for another one. Big mess…to bring the calm back into your home, keep them behind a door in another room with water and some toys. Also, you may be surprised to find out that you have a Houdini at home who can open locked doors, so keep the ID tag on both, cats and dogs. So the third rule is keeping pets in another room with doors closed.
4. If pooch is having his own costume, make sure the size fits him, that he can breath and move freely, and that it’s not too heavy for him. If he doesn’t like wearing clothes, please do not force him just because you think it’s cute. The rule for the dogs’ costumes is keeping it as simple as possible. You can only have a tank or sweater with cute ears or funny Halloween lettering that will do the job. So the fourth rule is keeping costumes simple.

Some people (who do not have pets) have difficulty understanding why should one use stroller for their pets. They think it’s funny or even ridiculous. But, if you have pet or two, you know that sometimes it’s heavy, inconvenient or even impossible (if you have two dogs or cats) to carry them on your shoulder.
As mentioned above, the main benefit is not having to carry a heavy bag. The stroller has enough room for the pet to sit, lie or stand while enjoying the view. You have the ability to carry more than one dog or cat, you can bring them in the store even if pets are not allowed. As i see it, one of the biggest benefits for older, sick or other pet health issues, is that he does not have to stay indoors. Even if he is a big dog, you can find strollers for pets up to 150 lbs.
As with other products, stroller design developed and today designers and manufacturers are offering innovative products that are more attractive and functional than ever.
One issue that pet parent had to deal with is the canopy open. The new Smart Canopy as the manufacturer said “No more floppy mesh in the pet compartment area when the canopy is open because this strollers have a hidden front steel bar in the upright position which gives your pet a safe enclosure even when the stroller canopy is open.” or in other words The Smart-Canopy™ mesh opens up and out of the way giving the pet more space when opened, unlike other strollers that open down into the compartment area.
Another thing is the Smart-Reach more comfortable pace when walking results from the ergonomic handle that provides more kick space when pushing the stroller.
The innovative parent basket is enclosed with a rear zipper to safely secure belongings while still providing easy access.
Another new stroller is the no-zip which means that you do not need to struggle anymore to put the pet in and out or in order to reach him. Also, the panoramic view window will keep your pet inside safe and happy.
It is important to know the pet’s measurements and weight, so he can be comfortable and safe inside. You should also read the description of each stroller so you can make a good decision which is the right one for you.
