The hustle and bustle of the city can be daunting. Safety is important for people and yes, dogs. Here are some ideas on how to make the city a safer place for your dog.
Reflective Leash and/or Collar
This is an easy project that can add an extra level of safety to your nighttime and even daytime walks. Simply get some reflective tape for clothing and place a strip on the collar (or harness) and a few strips on your leash. REI has some great options that are even weather proof, check it out.
“Pets Inside” Decal
These are a great way to let emergency responders know you have a pet inside. Contact your building management to see if you can put this on your door. You can find these at most pet stores. The ASPCA also has a Free Pet Safety Pack which includes a decal and ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center magnet—a great way to keep the APCC’s toll-free emergency number and website address handy in case your pets get into something they shouldn’t! You can get the free pack here.
