As a dog parent, you’re already thinking about day-to-day scenarios and making sure your dog is okay, but in reality, you also need to think about emergency situations that require special attention.
You need a fire-safety plan in place that covers all members of your family, and that includes your dogs too. Here are some tips to help you protect yourself and your precious dogs. Here’s Part 1, in case you missed it.
Keeps candles, diffusers and basically anything else that can cause a fire, away from your dog’s reach. Even your dog’s tail can knock over something accidentally causing a fire, so everything should be out of your dog’s tail’s reach.
2. Stove Knobs
Sometimes even humans, by mistake, turn on the stove, so if your dog it tall, consider taking out the knobs if you can, or invest in stove knob protectors to prevent your dog from accidentally turning on the stove.
3. Microchip your Dog
During emergencies and out of fear, dogs tend to run away a lot of times. If you want to be able to find your dog faster, microchip them to avoid the unnecessary wait time. If your dog wanders off, the microchip will lead him back home.
4. Monitored Fire Alarms
This is a good idea if you’re working a fulltime job and aren’t home most of the time. If your dog stays home unattended, investing in reliable monitored fire alarms can be a savior as they will alert 911 when they go off so emergency personnel can arrive at your home to save your dog.
