Signature Dog Blog: Signature Pet Services wishes you a Happy Halloween





Watch out for the grim reaper (AKA Roman) on Halloween Night...he may kiss you to death.  Although, one reader sent me an email that Roman looks more like he is dressed up as Ghandi ... and another said a ghost.  I think they are both right!


Halloween is a fun change in the daily routine for all family members except pets. Pets don’t care for change and can become nervous and/or aggressive with the increased number of people and vehicles in their territories. Add the potentially hazardous mix of decorations and Halloween candy within the pet’s reach, and it could prove to be a fatal mix unless precautions are taken to keep pets safe on Halloween.




Pets allowed to remain loose on Halloween can be injured or cause injury. An unconfined pet may run out outside and into the path of oncoming traffic when the home’s door is opened to give trick or treaters candy. 

On the other hand, an unconfined pet (dogs specifically) may feel that children wearing Halloween costumes are territorial risks and bite a child. 




Black cats and Halloween go together, which makes black cats at high risk for being stolen from their owners on Halloween.

Happy Halloween everyone and keep those pets inside!

Boo!

Signature Dog Blog: Three Dog Bakery




Pupcakes from Three Dog Bakery



Are you heading to the lower mainland this week perhaps for a family gathering?  In particular, either Vancouver or Port Moody?


Are you looking for a really cool little shop for your dog, that we simply don't have here on the Saanich Peninsula?


Are you taking your beloved pup with you, if so he will love it.


Or, are you having to leave him or her at home simply because he or she does not travel well or this is a business trip?


And, you are feeling guilty.  Are you feeling guilty?  Well don't be.  Just make sure you have a few minutes put aside to hit one of the two Three Dog Bakery locations.  The stuff is so yummy looking that you will want to be a dog.  OK not really.


But you will want to look at getting getting a Blueberry Pot Pie, Dog Taco or one or many of the special Pupcakes.  


They even have S'mores.  For dog.  Not human.  


One of my favourite things to do for my dog is to purchase a custom cake with his or her name on it.  So fun.


Just think you can go to a bakery and not have to worry about counting calories. And, your dog will love you for it!


Just click on the link for everything you need to know.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
