The expert dog boarding franchise is always keen to share its expertise with readers, and in a recent blog post turned its attention to winter walk safety.
Wagging Tails, first established in 2007, has gained a substantial amount of expertise and experience over its near two decades in business. Not only has the pet franchise’s level of knowledge increased, so has its size - but Wagging Tails is still as keen as ever to offer customers helpful advice.
In the words of the franchise, “When it’s wet and windy outside, often the last thing you feel like doing is heading out for a walk. But even when it’s cold, ensuring your dog gets enough exercise is a must. [...] Though it may not always seem like it, winter dog walks can be a really great way of forcing us up and out of the house for some fresh air.”
Wagging Tails continued, “The key to enjoying these colder dog walks is to make sure you’re prepared! As well as making sure you're wrapped up warm, it’s also important to think about safety considerations for your pooch. So, we’ve put together five ways you can ensure you’re walking your dog safely over the winter season.” The five ways were as follows:
- Avoid long walks when it's really, really chilly - keep them short and sweet
- Help your dog stay warm with a jacket
- Always keep your dog on a lead in icy conditions
- Check doggy paws when you’re home to ensure they’re okay
- Run a warm bath for your pup when you’re home to warm them up again
Finally, Wagging Tails expressed, “It’s not just humans that want to curl up by the fire on a winter’s day! You may find that your pup needs a little coaxing to get outdoors in horrible weather too... However, a toasty winter coat and the prospect of a warm bath when home should help to do the trick.” Find out more about this franchise that’s hugely committed to doggy welfare via its profile page, which you’ll discover linked above.
