Walking your dog without a leash

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

I know that you think that you know your dog. He always stays by you and obeys all of your commands. You may feel comfortalble taking him for a walk around your house without a leash. This is a big mistake. You never know what lurks around the corner. It could be something as simple as a squirrel that sends your dog off and running. I do have a sad stoy about a man who always walked his dog in the quiet area where he lived. There was very  little traffic and lots of space and most of all not too many people. One day while on his walk with his owner, the dog saw a squirrel. He quickly darted away and  ran across the road. At that time an SUV was coming down the road at a fast speed. He hit the little dog and killed him instantly. So if you think you can walk your dog without a leash, do me a favor and think of this story. It may save your dogs life!

Remember, your pets count!
