RDOC Safety Award
Gabe Parent, winner of our first Safety Award.
Thank you Gabe for pointing out that “You shouldn't over-tire/over-stimulate your dog or puppy with too much play. It makes dogs grumpy and puppies feisty and bite.”
Please remember to check for cats or other animals hiding under the hood or in the wheel arches of your car. Make noise, bang on the hood, slam the car door, and honk your horn for good measure
before you start your engine. And give the animal a little extra time to escape, it may be in a tight space.
If you wish to make a contribution, comment, or submit an article,
