Animal Protection Month

Animal Protection Month

October is Animal Protection Month. As one of the most important figures in our lives, many of us can hand on heart say our pets mean the world to us. Stepping further into the autumnal months with colder and darker nights drawing in, staying safe when out and about with our furry friends is more important than ever.

Animal Protection Month

Raising awareness of the responsibilities of owning domesticated animals, Animal Protection Month runs throughout October sharing tips, tricks, and handy hints of how we can keep our fur babies safe all year round. From walkies in the dark to collars and staying safe in the cold, we want to spread a little love of how we can all keep our four-legged friend safe when the seasons begin to change.

Light em up!

Being a significant part of their daily exercise routine, there is no better outdoor activity for your dog than a good old walk. However, as the lights dim down and nights draw in quicker than ever before, taking your pooch out for their daily stroll can be rather problematic when the sun begins to fade. 

Ensuring you are both safe when out and about, it is fundamental that any night walking is done when you and your dog are highly visible. Investing in high visibility clothing for both you and your pooch will significantly increase being seen by nearby road users and even other dog walkers. Flashing collars are also another terrific tool for keeping your dog safe when out and about whilst making them look like they’ve just stepped out of an 80’s reunion party. Pawfection!

Curb the Cold

With summer being a distant memory, many of us reach well into our wardrobes of wooly jumpers, our fluffy socks, and enough scarves to wrap around the Earth a gazillion times. So as the whirling wind draws in and we wake to a frosty chill, we need to be a little more mindful when venturing outdoors with our four-legged friends in toe. 

Used to protect both their vital organs and to soothe their skin from icy chills, jumpers and coats can be everything your dog needs to protect them when enjoying the fresh air of their autumnal adventures. Helping to prevent drying of skin, that can lead to increased itching and biting and ensure your pooch doesn’t pick up any unwanted coughs or colds (Yes! It’s pawsible), investing a quality coat for your four-legged friend will keep them just as cosy as you head off for your daily walks or playtimes.

Keep them Tagged

There really is nothing more important if you own a furry friend than ensuring they are both microchipped and tagged when out in public. Punishable by law, often with a fine of up to £5,000, leaving your dog unidentifiable with a collar or harness tag can be detrimental to both you and your pet. 

Designed to aid the return of your pet if they become lost or even stolen, a tag can ensure your beloved furry friend is returned to you safe and sound. It is important to keep your dog’s collar up to date if you move home or change your mobile number as this information is fundamental on your dog’s tag. We would also encourage you to never put your dog’s first name on any collar or tag, as with a recent rise in animal theft across the UK, a criminal could easily lure/recall a dog using the name provided on the tag. 

Easily purchased from many pet retailers across the UK, getting your dog’s first tag or simply updating or replacing one really could be a life-changing move that could avoid a costly fine and disastrous circumstances if your dog becomes lost or stolen.
