HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYDOG...

 It's New Year's Eve... We would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a Happy New Year. While tonight will most likely be a fun-filled night for us humans, just take a minute to remember that fireworks and loud parties may not be that much fun for your furry friends.

 Please ensure that they are safe tonight by putting them in the thundershirts a couple of hours before the fireworks start.

 Ideally take them for a long walk and ensure that they have had their meals early. We highly recommend that you bring your furry companions indoors and keep them in a safe and quiet room. Turn on some music or the TV to drown out the sounds of the fireworks.

 If you are unable to bring them indoors, ensure that they are securely leashed or crated. While there are many people that are anti-leashing or crating/caging, please note that during festivities, this is the best option to ensure that your pets are safe. There have been too many cases of pets going missing because they escaped from their homes due to the fireworks.


Additionally, please make sure that your pets have their collars and id tags on.

Happy New Year Everdog! Have a great year ahead and stay safe!!!

IS YOUR DOG TAGGED?

IN RECENT TIMES, there has been an alarming rate of posts on Facebook, Petfinder, Twitter etc about pet dogs that have gone missing or been found by concerned citizens.

Those that are more fortunate and internet savvy may be re-united. But a large number of animals are un-claimed because the owners do not know how to look for them, and the rescuers have no way of contacting the owners.

So I thought I would just highlight the importance of having dog-tags for your poochies. Make sure your dog has a collar with an ID tag and/or your local council license. This can help reunite your dog and you should your dog accidentally escape and is unable to find his way home.

The most important piece of information to include on the pet-id tag is your phone number. So where can you get these id tags? We got ours from Furrenz.com. There are quite a few styles available for a reasonable price. Service is efficient and delivery, prompt.

For more unique id tags, check out Furkids Forever. The tags sold here are one of a kind...

But at the end of the day, please make sure that you take extra care when opening gates especially if you have auto-gates to ensure that your beloved pets do not accidentally run out. Also check your fences periodically to ensure that there are no holes etc from which your pet can squeeze out. And also please be careful when walking your pets. Ensure that your harnesses and collars and leashes are secure.
