I have chosen some tips that may seem a bit random, but they are things about your dog’s health and safety that are often not talked about, but important for you to know.
The following information is designed to help you prevent your dog from having a problem or getting sick; it is not intended to be an exclusive listing of all things potentially harmful for your dog, but a few common things you’ll want to avoid.
If it’s safe for you to use, it should be safe for your dog…right? Wrong! Each year, there are thousands of dogs who are poisoned by common, everyday substances that are found around your home, things that seem harmless because you use them, but that doesn’t mean they are harmless for Fido.
It’s a beautiful day in your neighborhood…you have always wanted to take Fido to the off leash dog park just down the street…today just might be the perfect day for it. But wait! Have you and your pup prepared to be in the company of several other off leash canines and their owners?
Most dogs love to go in the car with you, and they make great companions on a road trip. And face it, it’s hard to leave Fido home. But whether you’re traveling across the country or just to the nearest dog park, taking your dog with you takes a little bit of planning and preparation…for safety’s sake.
If you’re getting a new puppy, one of the first items you should be purchasing is a dog crate, his/her own little safe haven where she can feel secure. When thinking about dog crates, think of them as an enclosure rather than a cage, that will help you put the right perspective to them as you are searching for the right one.
