Advice from Harvey’s Army on keeping your dog safe

IN A BID TO MINIMISE THE RISK OF YOUR DOG GETTING OUT OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS (ESPECIALLY WITH THE CHILDREN BEING AT HOME) WE HAVE COME UP WITH SOME IDEAS FOR KEEPING THEM SAFE.

KEEP ALL DOGS ON A LEAD WHEN OUT ON A WALK, TRY TO EXERCISE IN A SECURE FIELD.

CONSIDER FIXING A SPRING TO THE GATE SO IT SHUTS BEHIND ANY VISITOR.

A BABY GATE ACROSS THE FRONT AND BACK DOOR.

SHUT THEM IN A SECURE ROOM WHEN ANSWERING THE DOOR OR LETTING WORKMEN ENTER.

KEEP DOORS LOCKED IF YOUR DOG CAN OPEN THEM.

CHECK FENCES AND GATES ARE SECURE.

A DOOR CHAIN WILL ALLOW YOU TO ANSWER THE DOOR BUT WILL STOP THE DOG GETTING OUT, IT WILL ALSO ALLOW THE CHILDREN TO SEE WHO IS THERE WITHOUT PUTTING THEMSELVES AT RISK.

MAKE SURE YOUR DOG HAS A COLLAR WITH TAG WHEN LET OFF THE LEAD.

CHECK ALL MICROCHIP DETAILS ARE CORRECT AND REGISTERED

. CONSIDER PREVENTING YOUR CHILDREN FROM WALKING THE DOG WITHOUT AN ADULT.

THESE ARE JUST SOME GUIDELINES FOR YOU, HARVEY’S ARMY WILL STILL BE HERE TO HELP AS AND WHEN WE CAN. HOWEVER AT THE HIGH RISK TIME WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE SAME SERVICES THAT WE NORMALLY DO. KEEP YOUR PETS SAFE AND TAKE CARE.
