??? Hey fellow dog owners, a friendly reminder during windy weather to check your fences! Here's why it's important:

1. Safety First - Strong winds can weaken or damage fences, creating escape routes for your furry friends. Ensuring your fence is secure keeps them safe.
2. Prevent Accidents - A broken fence may lead to your dog wandering into busy streets or unfamiliar territory, increasing the risk of accidents.
3. Peace of Mind - Knowing your dog is contained in a secure area provides peace of mind for both you and your pet.
So, take a moment to inspect your fence, fix any loose boards or gaps, and ensure your four-legged family members stay safe and sound. ???

Rainy and windy days can be challenging for both you and your furry friend. Here are some tips to keep you and your dog safe during inclement weather:

1. Stay indoors: If possible, avoid going out in heavy rain and strong winds.
2. Dress appropriately: If you must go outside, make sure you and your dog are dressed for the weather. Use waterproof jackets and ensure your dog is wearing a suitable coat or sweater if they need one.
3. Short walks: Limit the duration of your walks in bad weather. Quick walks are usually sufficient, so you both stay dry and safe.
4. Use a lead: Strong winds can startle your dog, so always keep them on a lead to prevent them from running off.
5. Watch for hazards: Keep an eye out for slippery surfaces and falling debris. Be cautious around puddles and wet leaves, as they can be slippery.
6. Dry your dog: When you return home, dry your dog thoroughly to prevent them from getting chilled.
7. Comfort and cuddle: After being out in the rain and wind, offer your dog a warm and cozy space to dry off and cuddle together.

Remember, safety comes first and if your dog is going outside make sure they have a collar and ID tag on.

t's okay to skip a walk on particularly stormy days. Your dog's well-being is a top priority. If need be, stay at home and do some training and brain games which can be just as tiring as a walk ??
