Rules of the Trail for Dogs
Here is some general rule of thumb tips to keep in mind while on the trails with your canine companion. First, keep your dog on leash at all times especially in areas where it is required. If your dog is off leash make sure he will respond to commands whether other dogs are around or not. Try to avoid confrontations with other dogs even if the other owner says the dog is friendly. Simply have your dog sit or stand to the side of the trail and allow the other dog to pass. If your dog is approached by a dog off leash and a fight ensures, drop your dog’s leash so neither dog will entangle in it and get hurt. Make sure your dog has all ID and vaccination tags on. Pick up after your dog when necessary as well. For more tips, talk to your veterinary clinic Fox Chapel, PA.
