  2. Having friends over can be fun for your pets too, but sometimes it’s a littl overwhelming. Make sure your dog has a safe place to go if they want to get away.
  3. Keep all food on high ground. The temptation can get too much when snacks are in reach and they smell so good. Be sure to feed your pup before company comes also to ensure that they can eat.
  4. Ensure ID tags are on and readable.With people coming and going during parties your dog or other pets may get out. Make sure they get home safe with proper ID tags, microchips if you can.
