You may love it when little goblins ring your doorbell and shout "Trick or treat!" but what about your dog? The scary sights and sounds of Halloween can spook dogs, so the Arizona Animal Welfare League and Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is offering workshops to help dogs and their owners have a happier holiday.
The classes provide practical advice for dealing with a dog's reaction when trick-or-treaters come to the door, as well as other safety tips
A $40 workshop is being offered 1 to 3 p.m., Oct. 8 at the AAWL & SPCA Education Center, 40 N. 30th Place, Phoenix. And, a shorter $25 version will be offered 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. and 2:45 to 3:45 p.m., Oct 29 at the center. Owners should bring their dogs.
And, from 2 to 4 p.m., Oct. 29 at the center Kids and adults in costume can enter costume contests with their dogs, play games and go trick-or-treating.
