Safe travels for your dog

I take my dogs on vacation with me and there are plenty of things I do to ensure their safety: harness seatbelt, fresh water, potty stops, comfy bedding and I even have laminated photos of the dogs that includes their microchip numbers, vet info and emergency contact information that is rubber-banded to my drivers license in the event I have an accident.
Apparently, not all dog owners take the safety of their K9 companions  into account while traveling, but ensuring that your dog is safe should be a priority,  and a basic responsibility of owning a dog, something the Romney family lacks.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone and their K9 family members!  Remember that although we humans love chocolate, it is unsafe and toxic for dogs.  So please keep those chocolate kisses to yourself and share a hug instead with your pups!

Very concerning….Dog Park goers be aware, be alert and be proactive!

I received information today about an alert for those living in NYC who take their dogs to dog parks and runs and the threat of poisonous substances in or around these areas.  It is very important to always be alert of the environment in which we allow our dogs to play and also, to relieve themselves.   When I am traveling with my dogs, which is often, I tend to use rest areas to relieve my dogs. I do not walk directly through the “dog run” area due to safety reasons.  Be aware of what other owners have not picked up, other dog’s poo is not something you want your dog walking through.  Also avoid areas of standing water, this is not a healthy way to allow your dog to hydrate and pay attention to what is on the ground.  Do not allow your dog to eat the various items on the ground.  What does this mean for you as a dog owner?  Pay attention to your dog and the environment you subject them to, your dog’s safety is your responsibility.
