When it comes to any pet, safety should always be the number one priority. Whether that means looking for shattered glass near a favorite swimming hole or simply observing your pooch play with one of our passion inspired toys. Safety is always key.
Here at Puffin Products, we’re big on both fun and safety. So we put together some quick tips to help keep your fuzzy little pal happy and safe, whilst you cruise around town.
Too hot for you? Too hot for them.
This is a big one.
Every year it’s the same thing. Someone leaves their dog in a hot car. The consequences can be fatal. It’s about this far into the paragraph where we would usually place a well thought out joke. But it’s serious time. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR PET IN A HOT CAR. Full stop.
Can a dog where a seat belt?
Yes but technically no...well at least, not a seat belt designed for humans. Dogs aren’t humans (and they probably don’t want to be) so if you strap your dog in like a new born baby, chances are they’ll go haywire. The safest thing to do is have them lay down in the backseat. That way they are somewhat protected from an impact and not panicking because of a seat belt. (Also don’t put them in the bed of a pickup truck...use your noodle, poodle).
The Frenchie Revolution.
This one may sound silly but it’s important.
Overlooking this simple step can in some cases, injure your dog. If your dog likes to stick it’s head out the window (and most do) remember these three steps.
One: Make sure that you aren’t on the highway.
Two: Always look back before you put your windows up.
Three: Child lock your windows if you can.
The last thing your little pupperoni wants to think is that they’ve been sent to the guillotine. So look back before you put those windows up and make sure they don't step on a live window-dooer-upper switch!
Safety cannot be overlooked when it comes to our pets. So next time you go cruising around the town with your fuzzy little copilot, be sure to have fun and stay safe!
