    I'm seriously dreading it. A night of non-stop barking when kids knock on the door :yikes: I really hope it will be done by 9 because I wake up early tomorrow...

    How do your dogs react to Halloween?

    Zeus is very good. After the first couple of rings, he just lays down and stares at the door with a wagging tail. He loves seeing all the new people.

    I was wondering the same thing I don't know how Ginger is going to react at all. I get up at 4am so ya I'll be closing doors at 8-8:30 anyhow only the bigger kids go later than 8. Hopefully they don't bark they don't normally when someone comes to the door.

    Casey is fine, we went for a walk to the shop earlier and she saw loads of trick or treaters and she was great. Its a bit past half nine now though so I don't think there will be anymore.

    Well my boys get crazy when we get people in the house :( Thanksfully they can't access the living room where the door is, or I would feel bad for those kids... and their costumes, for being jumped on by two crazy dogs...

    I put my dogs away in a room because they get too riled up when new people come to the door. Daisy thinks she has to be protective. But we don't get many kids, so its not too bad!

    Where I live it's very rural and there are no trick-or-treaters down the dirt road here. :p So no worries, my dogs probably won't have any idea it's Halloween and there's anything going on whatsoever.

    we live rural, too....no kids. good thing cause mine wouldn't know what to do with constant doorbell! they'd probably get all riled at first, then bored. lol at least Addie would be bored, Hammie might feel like he's the protector. :)

    Grammy, it was the same for us the first two years I was here... First year, no kid. So we didn't buy anything the next year, and bam, 10 of them showed up and we were all embarassed. We had a few least year so we'll see... lots of kids in the neighborhood but not sure they will stop here, as we don't know them much (although they probably know the dogs, lol).

    I don't get trick or treaters cause I live in the garden level apartment of a brownstone. My landlords get the trick or treaters! But, I tell you what, I AM dreading taking Hudson out for his early evening walk (any minute now) and his nighttime walk (around 10-11pm). He will be very distracted I'm sure... There are be-costumed kids (and adults) EVERYWHERE here. Eek!

    I'm not sure since this is the first halloween for both mine!! I think Moro will probably either hide or try to go out the door, so we might have to close off the bedroom. Although we might not get any trick-or-treaters... it's hard to tell... last year we only got a couple even though we're not outside of town. We got candy regardless, which will be eaten regardless :D

    We had the "little devils"turning up at the door last night.My 2 ended up barking the hallway out at each knock.The little dog Rocca,he didnt like some of the costumes and growled at them with his tail wagging.After the 3rd knock my older girl decided it wasnt worth getting out of her beanbag to look.:lol-sign:

    Well, Hudson did great on his walk. It's a good thing we were working hard on attention and heeling the past week. I kept his attention on me, praising and treating all the way. He wasn't even spooked by the little boy who brandished a pitchfork at him. Jeez... some people's kids!

    Since mine launch themselves through the air, snarling and barking if someone knocks at the door it's a good thing no one would ever brave the driveway to the farmhouse for a few pieces of candy :eek: I can just imagine a few having to go home and change their costumes . . . :eek:

    Ripley barks and freaks out. All night.

    Dakota usually barks the first few times, then settles down by the door.
