I am donating my birthday to the ASPCA to help save animals lives! Your donation will help the ASPCA provide life-saving programs and services to millions of animals nationwide. The ASPCA is very important to me and I appreciate your help as we fight to give abused and homeless animals a second chance at life. In lieu of birthday gifts, please support me by making a donation and help me make a positive impact in the lives of animals! Thank you!
Here is one fun article to Enjoy.
One of the best health and safety suggestions during the current pandemic state is to wash your hands. Owners and dog walkers should be washing their hands for 20-30 seconds before and after each walk.
Health experts have also mentioned it would be a good idea for people to tie their hair before going out and thoroughly washing their face and hair upon returning. It is also recommended that you wipe down your dog's paws and fur before entering the home in case they have picked up germs from public surfaces. The best products you can use for that is antibacterial wet wipes with no abrasive chemicals. This is the best way to clean dogs whose dirt might be hard to spot, especially black-coated dog breeds.
Surfaces such as benches, taps, tables, bins, fences and gates should not be touched directly. If you really, absolutely need to touch a surface, make sure that you are wearing protective, disposable gloves or that you have hand sanitizer with you in order to disinfect the surface and your hands.
The government restrictions during COVID-19 outline that cars are only to be used for essential travel, which means dog walkers who prefer to drive to enclosed dog parks, will need to change their routines to exercise their dogs in walking distance from their homes.
Due to the restrictions and closure of public and outdoor gyms, swimming pools and parks, many people are opting for walking as a preferred method of their daily exercise. People with friendly dogs who love approaching other people or dogs should be mindful of those that do not like dogs or interacting with them, we should try walking our dogs on a leash until the threat is over.
Many dogs love visiting dog parks because it gives their dogs and themselves the chance to socialise with other dogs and people. However, during these restricting and dangerous times, it is advised that dogs and their owners maintain their social distance until the situation is under control.
Games such as hide and seek and treasure hunts can be played indoors with your pets, as well as scent games, shorter distance fetch and tag. If you have an energetic breed that needs to exercise a lot, think about getting your dog a treadmill. Dog treadmills are a convinient way to exercise your dog at home.
