Show Notes

This fang-tastic episode of the Sexier than a Squirrel podcast is all about Halloween!

The height of the Spooky Season is such an exciting time of year, especially if you have a family with young children. There are tricks, treats and spooks galore with vampire visitors and ghostly guests knocking on your door. For your family, it’s a chilling, thrilling and exhilarating time!

Did you know that Halloween can actually be incredibly stressful and overwhelming for many dogs! 

That's right! It’s a night full of weird, wacky, strange and downright scary things that your dog may never have seen or experienced before! Trick or Treaters alone can very quickly fill your dog’s stress bucket, especially if those visitors are dressed as witches, ghosts and other creepy creatures!

To help you set your hound up for a frightfully fa-BOO-lous Halloween, Tom and Lauren have packed this episode full of their top treats, troubleshooting tricks and haunting hacks for you and your dog: 

✔️ Plan how you're going to use your dog's daily food allowance during Halloween

✔️ Make sure your fridge/freezer and cupboards are full of calming activities for your dog to focus on when things get frightful

✔️ Have safe spaces for your dog to hang out in away from the front door, novel noises and those terrifying Trick or Treaters! 

✔️ Pop a sign on your door asking visitors not to knock (we've even prepared one for you!) 


It's important to remember that while it is just one night, there can be an exciting, novel and busy build up to Halloween and you may need to guard your dog more carefully from experiences they won't find enjoyable in the days and weeks beforehand. 

Plus, let's not forget that Halloween usually marks be beginning of an entire season of novel events, from fireworks season, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year and so many more depending on where you are in the world, so the tips, tricks and treats in this episode are going to help you set your dog up for amazing success no matter what this time of year can throw their way!
