- Secure your dog behind a closed door or in a crate in a room away from the front door or the party if children are meeting at your house.
- Give him/her a stuffed Kong or other long lasting chew.
- Play music or leave a TV or radio playing in the dog’s room to help mask the sounds of the activity at the front door.
- Close drapes so that the dog does not see people coming and going through the window.
- If you have a dog that barks at the sound of the doorbell, disconnect it or watch for trick-or-treaters so that they do not have to ring or knock.
