Christmas is behind us, the world didn’t end, now it’s time to party like it’s 1999… or 2016. Whether your partying out in New York City watching the ball drop, at a club, throwing a party or just sitting on the couch watching the ball drop, we hope you have a safe an happy New Year. Follow these tips to make sure your best friend has a safe and happy New Year also.
- Don’t leave your pet outside on New Year’s Eve. Fireworks and other loud noises will be happening. Don’t let them get scared and take a chance of them jumping the fence, digging out or hurting themselves.
- Make sure they are wearing their bling! Keep the collars on and make sure their tags are up-to-date and readable in case the Fido runs and does get away. If you have people over, you never know who may accidentally let them out.
- Just because you like to drink does not mean your dog should! Alcohol is bad for dogs, their bodies aren’t made to break it down. Keep the New Year’s Eve cocktails away. Besides, we know you don’t like sharing them.
- Keep a safe space available. If your dog like’s their crate, make sure it is accessible. Everyone should always have a safe place.
- Leave a noise on. If you’re going out, leave a radio or TV on as a distraction. Who knows, your dog may learn some new tricks watching it while you are gone.
- Watch the decorations. Christmas decorations may still be up or who know… you may already have the Groundhog Day decorations out, they come out so early these days. Make sure none of your guests knock them over into your pet’s reach.
Remember to have a Happy New Year and be safe!
