Disaster Preparedness for Your Pets

Disaster may strike at anytime, with no warning. Anything can happen and no one is immune. You may have already created a disaster plan for your human family, but don't forget to include your companion animals in that plan. The more prepared you are before something happens, the greater your chances are for keeping everyone safe.

Off-Leash Areas for Dogs

Want exercise and socialization opportunities for your dog and you? Visiting an off-leash area or dog park can be the perfect way. Dog parks are recreation areas, usually fenced, created especially for dogs to run, work out, and play with their guardians and other dogs off-leash.

Handling your pet's curiosity, anxiety and increased insistence for attention may seem like an overwhelming task, in addition to preparing yourself and your household for the baby's arrival. You can, however, help your pet adjust to the big changes ahead with minimal time and effort by making gradual adjustments to your lifestyle before the baby arrives.
