1. Keep Fluffy away from the door.
Whether your pet is fearful of strangers, anxious about loud noises, or potentially aggressive, there’s no reason to have her greeting the neighborhood children. You will be opening and closing your front door constantly while you pass out candy, which gives your pet the perfect opportunity to make a run for it.

Prevent door dashing, frightened children and potential injury by either keeping your pet in a separate room or making sure he’s preoccupied whenever you need to answer the door.
