Planning For Summer

School will soon be out, families will be doing more outdoor recreation... and the family dogs will go along for the fun.

Does your dog have sufficient training to not be a nuisance, and to be safe and obedient, during your outings? This weekend, I saw a lot of dogs in cars with their owners. It is normal at this time of year to see dogs going along on errands, road trips, picnics and hiking adventures.

Other things I expect to see, and they happen every year about this time, are increases in dog biting incidents, phone calls from owners who have put off the training of their dogs, and reports of runaway dogs.

A little pre-planning can go a long way. NOW is the time to get your dog into training.
