  • Fire Safety Tips

     

    A pet is considered a valued member of any family and just as you’d implement a fire safety plan for your family, one should be implemented for your furry friend. On July 15th, 2017, we celebrate National Pet Fire Safety Day, here are some tips on how to protect your fur-baby in case of an emergency.

     

    1. Extinguish Open Flames:

    Always keep an eye out for open flames. Puppies are naturally curious and want to explore their surroundings. Having candles, cooking appliances, or a fire place turned on while your pup is alone or unattended could be hazardous for their safety.

     

    2. Have A Plan When You’re Home:

    If you’re home in the case of an emergency know who will be responsible for each pet. That way your fur-babies won’t panic and remain safe in the hands of their loved ones.

     

    3. Puppy Proof Your Home:

    Walk around your home and look for potential things that your puppy could mistakenly start a fire with. Things such as stove knobs, loose wires, and other dangerous objects.

     

    4. Keep Your Puppy Near an Entrance:

    While you’re away try to keep your puppy close to an entrance. If a fire occurs a firefighter can easily access your furry friend rather than them having to waste time searching for your beloved companion.

     

    National Pet Fire Safety Day is an important reminder of how crucial it is to have a plan in place for your puppy’s safety. We hope these tips are useful and help you keep your best friend out of harm’s way.

  • Fourth of July Puppy Safety Tips

    Fourth of July is a day of great celebration and fun activities. However, it is important to remember the safety of your fur-babies on this hectic day. So, as you prepare for barbecues and fireworks here are some tips on how to keep your puppy safe during this Independence Day.

     

    1. Keep Your Puppy Indoors:

    It is safer to keep your puppy at home during Fourth of July celebrations instead of taking your pup to any parties or activities in locations they are not accustom to. Keeping your puppy indoors will prevent frightening them with the loud celebrations that might be happening around you.

    2. Fireworks:

    Puppies can be easily startled by the loud noise of fireworks. When fireworks are shot and festivities begin take your puppy inside a room that is comfortable and secure. Your pup will feel much safer and less likely to be startled by the harsh noises.

    3. Table Scrapes:

    Avoid the temptation of feeding your puppy pal human food. This could be harmful to your puppy and could put them at risk of serious medical danger.

    4. Comfort Your Fur-Baby:

    If your furry pal seems scared or anxious, spend some time talking and playing, this will help soothe and relax your pup.

     

    We hope these tips ensure that you and your puppy have an amazing and safe Fourth of July!
