Walking your dog in the city

Sunday, September 23, 2012

The city¬† is a place where there’s always lots of noise, traffic and other dogs of all types and personalities.¬† This can be disastrous if you and your pet are new to the city. Always be aware of you and your dog’s surroundings. Keep your dog close to you at all times. Letting your dog stray too far on his leash can lead to trouble. Bicyclists and skateboarders can appear from no where. Your dog can also stray into the busy street. He is in danger even if he’s close to the curb. Your dog can not only be scared but can get run over as well. Most important, make sure that you watch for other dogs. Even if the other dogs are on a leash and their owners say that they are friendly, you should never let your dog get too close. Most dogs (and even your own) are very protective of their owners, so you never know how they will react when another dog comes up to them. Hold on to them very tight and NEVER tie them to a hydrant or pole while you go into a store!

Remember, your pets count!
