Under the law they are considered property πŸ™ They are living, breathing creatures that have feelings and feel pain.

With Summer coming here are some tips to keep your pet safe.

  • Do not leave your pet in a vehicle, even with the windows down a bit. It’s like leaving them in a roasted oven.Β  ~ Do a test ` sit in the car with the windows rolled completely up~ Sit there for 5 minutes ~ Ask yourself how do you feel? Now imagine a dog has fur or hair on top of that ~ Leave your pet at home if you cannot keep them with you~
  • Keep your pet trimmed and combed well to ensure they do not have matts of hair or excess hair that will make it much warmer for them.
  • Pets need lots of Fresh Water ! I often put a few ice cubes in it to keep it cooler longer.
  • Do not let your pet sit on your lap while driving ~ please tell me what happens toΒ  your pet if you need to slam on your breaks? Exactly!
  • Do not let your pet hang out the window ~ again what happens if you need to slam on your breaks?
  • Invest in a proper harness to clip to the seat belt to properly keep your dog safe so in th even of an accident; he or she will be much safer!
  • In hotter weather, try feeding your dog earlier in the morning or later in the evening when it’s cooler; just like you when it’s hotter sometimes you don’t feel like eating; neither does your pet.
  • I often keep pieces of water melon with me in the car.
