On the Run
Best ways to prevent pets from hightailing it out of here:
- Sudden noises: Scaredy-cats (and dogs) will run for cover when they hear thunder or fireworks, so keep them inside or on a leash during storms or on the Fourth of July.
- Heat is on: Get pets neutered or spayed to prevent them from looking for love.
- Missing you: Pets can feel disoriented without their owners, making them more likely to wander off. Make sure your animal feels comfortable around your pet sitter.
