Halloween safety tips for families with dogs

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.—Halloween is next weekend and most parents' biggest concern is their child's safety, but families with dogs should keep a few more safety tips in mind.

Halloween is the most dangerous holiday for dogs especially when more dogs die than any other day of the year, according to Bark Busters.

Here are a few things you can do:
Keep your dog inside even if you have a fenced yard and in a room away from the front door.
Have your dog get used to costumes otherwise he may think you're a stranger when you're dressed up.
Keep candy, candles and pumpkins away.
