4 Ways to Prep Your Pet for Halloween

Oct 2, 2018

Pet Halloween noise anxiety is a very real thing. Here’s a complete guide to making sure the whole family is prepared for the spookiest day of the year!

Pet Releaf’s CBD hemp oil can help keep our pets calm when there are sudden changes in their routine/environment, like pet Halloween anxiety. Dog noise anxiety can be triggered by several things on Halloween, from the doorbell ringing off of the hook to sudden knocks and scary costumes, your pet can be heavily triggered by Halloween. When CBD enters your pet’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS), it activates particular receptors in the body so that they can have a 2-way communication between regulatory systems. These two receptors are known as the CB1 and CB2 receptors.  Since the CB1 receptors work in the brain and CB2 receptors are found throughout other systems in the body, this allows both receptors to “talk” to one another. This process allows your pet’s body to be calmer and more relaxed.

Pet Releaf created a guide to help you prepare for your pet’s safety this coming holiday month!

1. Create a Safe Space

Create a comfortable space for your pet to spend their time when there’s commotion at the door and fill it with their favorite items. Whether it be a dog/cat bed, blanket, toys, or even clothing of yours that smells like home –anything could be of help when the night’s activities are a bit more unpredictable!

2. Use Pet Releaf’s CBD Hemp Oil

All of our CBD hemp oils have different potencies and recommended usages based on your pet’s weight. At Pet Releaf, we recommend splitting the recommended usage between the morning and evening. Each administration has a half-life of 9 hours, by splitting the recommended usage between the AM/PM your pet will gain relief for the majority of the day! If you only want to administer before the Halloween festivities begin, then administer the split usage amount at least 30 minutes to 1 hour beforehand. Also, don’t forget to administer on an empty stomach for max absorption. Keep Edibites on hand so you can also give those as needed throughout the evening as additional support for your pet’s Halloween anxiety.

If you have never used Pet Releaf products before and are looking to use them for the first time this Halloween, a safe bet is to start your pet on our products about 48 hours before the festivities begin! Each pet is different, and although most pet parents see results within 30-45 minutes when administering our products properly and for situational anxiety, some pets may require a couple of days of usage for desired results. By starting two days early, you’re increasing the chances of Pet Releaf products taking effect during Halloween!

3. Place Candy Bowl Outside

A way to avoid the endless doorbell ringing or knocks on the door from trick-or-treaters is placing the candy bowl on your doorstep. This way your pup or cat won’t get anxious from the noise or unknown visitors at the door and kids can just freely take the candy outside instead. Don’t forget the “Please Take Only One” sign!

4. Reward Good Behavior

Just like the kiddos are getting their candy from their trick-or-treating adventures, make sure your pup or cat is fully stocked with their favorite snack! Pro tip: provide your pet with a bone or long-lasting chew to keep them occupied during the excitement outside.

As your pet’s Halloween anxiety starts arising, follow these tips to ensure your pet is comfortable and safe. Also, make sure that you are fully stocked with all the essentials like our Pet Releaf CBD Hemp Oils and Edibites to make for a smoother Halloween holiday.
