How to Keep Your Dog Safe When You are Not Home
We love our pets but, unfortunately, very few people have the luxury of staying home and playing with them all day. This leads us to a predicament; how do we ensure that they will be safe while we are gone?
After all, dogs have been known to run out of the house and get lost when there’s no one else around to keep an eye on them.
On the other hand, if you leave them locked inside, chances are that they will get depressed or angry and may even get into bother! Fortunately, there are ways to ensure your doggy’s wellbeing, even when they are out of sight.
Communicate from Miles Away
You can buy specialized cameras with built-in speakers, which can be used from anywhere in the world. Not only will the cameras let you keep an eye on them in the house; the speakers will also make sure that your dog hears your voice whenever you say something to them. It’s a sure shot way to keep your dog company when you cannot be there physically.
Keep them Safe with Pet Gates
You may not want your puppies to walk on the carpet and you will certainly want to keep them out of places in the house where it can be hazardous for them. So, how do you do that? By installing pet gates, which keep your dogs out without messing up the interior decoration in any way.
Collar with GPS Transmitter
Thousands of dogs get lost each year in the US and end up in shelters because their owners just couldn’t find them. A simple GPS dog collar is the solution to this problem, as it lets you track your dog constantly. You can actually create a Geo-Fence on the device, which will alert you as soon as your dog steps outside the safety zone.
Even in the off-chance that your dog has traveled more than the three to five-mile range that these GPS collars have, the tracker is almost certain to pick up the signal once again when you travel close to your dog’s location while out searching for the pooch.
A Safe Place
Most dogs hate thunderstorms and are scared of them. Just in case nobody is home and a thunderstorm kicks in, you need to make sure that your puppy has a safe place to hide until somebody gets home. It could be a soft crate or a comfortable doggy house with his/her favorite toys to cuddle with. The idea is that the space should feel like a safe place to hide in until the storm blows over.
Dogs are like children, especially puppies, and just like children, they need to be kept under observation and care. It is important to remember that even though some dogs can be exceptionally intelligent, they cannot communicate with us and that puts them at a permanent disadvantage, especially when no one from the family is around to look after and reassure them.
