Suggested: How to Have a Safe Nighttime Walk
Put a leash on life! With the excitement of fall in the air, your dog may try to join in on the fun. Make sure you have a secure leash and collar with a key tag that contains all necessary information to keep your pet safe this season. In the event that your pet does make a break for it, their key tag information will help them find their way home.
Watch out for toxic trash on the ground during your walk! Keep an eye out for popular fall foods, such as chocolate, grapes, and raisins, that may cause your barking buddy more harm than good. Make sure to look over any outdoor areas your dog will be in before letting them explore on their own.
You’re never too busy for a walk! The holiday season is a busy time for all of us, 24 hours doesn’t seem like enough time in one day. Make sure to set aside enough time for dog walking before and after the Halloween rush. Your dog deserves to enjoy the holiday season and the chilly weather too.
Reward your barking buddy! Holidays feel like time has slipped away from our fingers, don’t neglect your dog this season. Reward them with safe doggy treats after every walk to make them look forward to the next one.
