Dog Tip of the Day: Be Prepared for Critical Situations

thundershirt-side1

If there’s one thing to remember about dogs it’s that they’re animals.   At any given moment a dog could snap.  A dog could bite someone.  A dog could run away only to never come back.  We just can’t be 100% sure no matter how calm or pleasant our canines are.   That’s why our tip of the day says to be prepared for critical situations.  At least be as prepared as you possibly can.  Critical situations can come in many forms but today’s situation involves those scary times where you want your pet to feel safe.

Dog management tools like muzzles and crates, along with calming aids like Through a Dog’s Ear or Thundershirts, can help keep your dog safe, and feeling safe in stressful situations such as storms, being home alone, or visiting the vet.  To get the most out of these products, make sure to use them often when you are relaxing and having fun with your dog, not just in crisis mode. This way your dog doesn’t start seeing his crate, muzzle, or Thundershirt as a predictor of “bad things happening.”

Like anything else, it’s always important to be as positive as possible with your dog.  You don’t want to overexpose them to something they deem harmful.  This way when a bad situation does arise it won’t seem so bad at all.
