National Pet Fire Safety Day

National Pet Fire Safety Day is coming up on July 15.  Between now and then I encourage you to put together a "whole family" plan (including your pets) as to how you'd handle a fire emergency in your home to get everyone out safely.  Here are some tips just for your pup!

* Practice the plan once it's in place...with your pet.
* It's best to sleep with your bedroom door closed.  Consider closing your pet inside with you at night. 
* Keep leashes and collars easily accessible (perhaps near the entrance of your house)
* Place a "pets inside" window cling on your front door window and keep it up to date.
* Make one person responsible for each pet.
* Be aware of all of your pets regular hiding spots when he/she gets scared.
 *Don't risk your life to save your pet.  Leave that to the professionals.  (Easier said than done, I know)

  2. We need to put some final touches on our fire plan. The dogs always sleep in our bedroom with the door closed, but the cats don't. We have started keeping the collars on the bedroom door so they are in easy reach. I heard them talking about how you had 1.5 minutes from a start of a fire to get out safely. That isn't long. But our bedroom is next to the front door (and has a patio door) so that should help!

  3. What a good idea! Fire safety is such an important issue. Especially here in Australia where we have awful bushfires. The Rural Fire Service has ads on TV about making sure everyone has a fire safety plan, you can download an app to help you make one and there is a section for planning for your pets.
