It’s National Safety Month
What’s the best pet safety advice you ever needed?

In honor of National Safety Month, the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) has compiled some ideas for keeping dogs safe. Their tips include basic first aid information, as well as tips for keeping your dog safe at the pool, outdoors including around wildlife, when traveling, during holidays, such as Christmas and the Fourth of July, and in a variety of other situations. The association emphasizes that trained dogs are easier to keep safe than those without such skills.

Find more good advice in the May 2009 issue of The Bark. Senior editor, Susan Tasaki, tackles diverse strategies for canine safety emergencies with how-to’s from the canine Heimlich maneuver to tick removal.

Keeping our pets safe is always a matter of continuing to learn how to prevent, spot, and handle trouble. Do you have ideas about keeping your dog safe?
