Keep a leash by your front and back doors in case you need to get out of house quickly with your dog(s) – especially in case of a fire or other critical emergency. Keep multiple leashes or pet carriers if you have multiple pets.

 ALWAYS make sure your carriers are accessible and ready to go!

Mani-pedis are really important for both dogs and cats. If left unattended, nails can grow into the skin. Not only is this painful but it also makes walking extremely difficult. If you struggle to trim nails, both a groomer or the vet’s office can help. Some adoption agencies offer free nail trims for life. So be sure to ask when you adopt.

A nice cat scratching post will also help keep nails in good shape.
