Dog Tip of The Day, March 29

A lot of people will be traveling with their pets over the next few days.  Make sure your pet is secure and has everything it needs.  Take a favorite toy, some water, something to chew on and as always, plenty of treats.  always have its collar on with licence and have a leash handy.  Remember a 100 pound dog flying from the back seat into your neck during a crash will ruin your day.
