For some dogs, Halloween can be a stressful day, with all the strange costumes people wear, children walking by the front windows, doorbells ringing constantly.
What can we do if our dog is stressed out?
Jessica Peralta of Dogs Naturally Magazine suggests several tips:
- Keep dogs away from windows and doors, at a peaceful environment
- Use Rescue Remedy (there’s a pet version)
- Use pressure wrap
- Tellington TTouch
- Play classical music
- Essential Oils

Essential oils are a natural but powerful medicine. It’s important to get high quality oils, to always dilute the oil or oils in a carrier oil, never give the oil to your dog internally and avoid using it with cats, birds, reptiles and fish.
