Let’s make the most of Halloween to treat our four-legged companions to something healthy, easy and most of all, yummy:

Dogs hate Halloween

We hope that we are not hurting anyone’s feelings when we say that our canine friends hate costumes, and that if they had the choice, they’d rather parade around in the altogether on All Hallows’ Eve. However, Halloween can be a fun occasion to turn our pooches into little monsters, fiends and other strange creatures. Some dog owners show amazing creativity and we have to admit that some of their costumes have brought more than a smile to our lips.

If you feel inspired by them, just bear in mind the advice we give you below and make sure your dog is terrifyingly dressed for Halloween but also safe and hazard-free!

 

 Now let’s begin, without further ado, the journey into the dark…

Ride with your dog, like a pro!

Summer is one of the best moments of the year to go for a ride, but you don’t want your dog to be staying home alone while you are having a good time outside in the sun! Therefore we encourage you to ride your bike along with your faithful companion, taking into account the advice which we are about to give you.

Did you know that cycling makes you burn 110 kcals in 20 minutes? For that reason, it is a very healthy activity which requires little effort, as it is up to you to decide on the pace and distance that you deem appropriate. The same goes for your dog, whose physical condition is to be taken into account before embarking on the ride!

The breed and age are the two main factors that you should keep in mind. Whereas some dogs are highly energetic and will love the ride, others not so much. Besides, burning calories also helps dogs to remain fit after a long winter.

Remember that in order to enjoy your doggy bike ride, you must avoid high temperatures. Thus, do not go for the ride at the hottest time of the day, or else your dog could suffer from a heatstroke. Also remember to bring water along with you to cool down your pooch.
What’s more, if your dog is one to pull the leash, there are various bike tow leashes available on the market that could come in handy for you. They consist in clip-on metal bars to be fastened onto the bike frame, easy to attach or remove to suit your needs.
