Lifesavers - Leash and Collar
written by Kathy Stewart
Dogs that run at large are not only a nuisance, but they can
be harmful to themselves and others. Below is just a small list
of problems that could occur because your dog was not properly
housed in a fenced yard, dog run; or on a collar and leash with
1) Dog fights - causing injury or death to one or more dogs,
therefore large vet bills. Harm may also come to the individuals
who try to break up the dog fight, resulting in one or more
visits to the doctor or hospital.
2) Eating garbage - creating a mess for neighbours and possible
death to your dog due to injestion of poisonous materials and/or
bones which may lodge in the animals throat.
3) Running into traffic - can not only present a threat to the dog
but also to the motorist who tries to avoid it, and the pedestrian
who happens to be in the way. Law suits could follow.
4) Lost dog - many dogs simply do not return home and the owner
then has the heartbreak of worrying where they are and what has
happened to them.
Please protect your dog from these tragedies.
