May or may not be triggering, as a dog doesn’t die on-camera. In S2E2, ‘About Last Night’, a 200-year-old taxidermy dog (originally a characters pet) is a key character in the episode. [spoilers - the taxidermy dog is accidentally set on fire at the end of the episode]

Arguably, yes. Julian makes quite frequent comments about patting/pinching women's butts and generally being a sex pest. However, it is rarely actually shown and would probably fit Harassment better than Assault.

The ghost who was killed by falling re-enacts this death every night in her sleep. (walking to the window where it happened, sleep-talking, actually falling)

the ghosts “retch” every time someone walks through them, though i don’t find that very triggering.

however, in series 3 episode 5 (something to share), around 20 minutes in (just after her sister gives her warm oysters) kitty is v**miting into a basin. i found it very triggering and hate to mute it & look away.

Though never specifically stated, it’s implied the Mary has PTSD after being burnt in a witch trial. She is frequently triggered in the series by fire/burning, which is often played for laughs

One of the ghosts is very good at objectifying women the other ghosts label him as 'morally bankrupt' and in season 5 2 ghosts argue about who would win over the weather girl and another character talks to them and basically calld them gross for it

Quite a lot of blood/gore in the series:

1) one character is beheaded, and usually has his head/body separated. The inside of his neck is show, and a little gory (with a lot of blood in his backstory episode, s3e1).

2: one ghost was shot through the abdomen, and has a visible wound with blood on his cloathes (more blood in his backstory episode, s2e4).

3: not much visible blood, but one ghost has an arrow through is neck (with the injury being shown happening in s1e3).

4: the plague ghosts have bloodied/puss-filled blisters across their bodied (and a character coughs blood in s2e2).

5: audio gore and detailed description in s4e5, from a ghost who died stepping in a badger trap, though nothing is shown.
