New to the Neighborhood?

When people move and have pets there are some etiquette and safety tips to consider before walking the dog and visiting local Doggie Parks:

 

  • Seek Vet recommendations and make sure vaccinations are current 
  • Check local ordinances to make sure your dog is in compliance
  • Secure yards and home perimeters to make sure dogs don't run away
  • Make sure your home and yards are safe for pets
  • Change ID tags and records with current owner contact information

 

Socialization

  • Owners and their pets may want to meet the neighbors
  • Find out if there are Doggie Parks
  • Seek information about Doggie Day Cares

 

Dog Parks

  • Invest in Flea and Tick Collars
  • Make sure the leash fits comfortably and won't break
  • Visit parks and read Park Regulations without your dogs beforehand
  • Take a doggie pack and pack essentials
  • Don't text and talk on phones - keep your eyes on dogs at all times
  • Watch for sharp objects and safety issues
  • Watch out for four-legged bullies


Doggie Back Packs

  • Water Bottles and Drinking Devices
  • Treats for after the park is over
  • Simple Toys if parks permit
  • Blankets
  • First Aid Kits
  • Contact numbers for emergencies (Vets or Animal Control)

 

Doggie Safety Measures

  • Climate can take a toll on animals too
  • Observe your pet for signs of illness
  • Keep your dog and the environment clean and safe
  • Know what to do when dogs are in heat
  • Watch for signs of aggression between your dog, other dogs, and people

 

Above all else, most dogs are created to have unconditional love. If you notice changes in your dog's personality, you have a responsibility to find out why and how to help your pet.

Pet owners should definitely use etiquette when moving to a new area.   I am not very familiar with different breeds of dogs, so if I encounter one that is not on a leash, I am unsure if it will bite me or not, haha.

Moving is stressful for all , especially animals, and we need to help them adapt just like we consider how to help our children. Good post with thoughtful suggestions.

Brian England - I am with you! It frightens me to see and know dogs are not on a leash. I had a very scary experience in Maine long ago. I was a runner at that time and was doing my thing running down a nice country road one morning. Out of the blue jumped a big and ferocious dog that barked and snarled and charged at me. I don't think I ever ran so fast in my life! All the while I was running, I didn't know the neighborhood or have a cell phone or anything in case of an emergency. That dog finally stopped chasing me, but I stopped running on isolated country roads too. Plus, I got lost and didn't dare go back the way I came from. It was a very frightening experience.

Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 - Your kind remarks are always appreciated. Adaptation is for everyone, not just people and kids. As you said, "Moving is stressful for all." Plus, it is hard on neighbors when there is a new dog in the neighborhood who never stops barking or cries when owners leave the house.

George Souto - We live in an age where there is so much emphasis on adopting pets. In addition, many communities have dog parks and HOA's. The cost to maintain a pet with spa treatments, daycares, veterinarian fees, and dog shows has expectations now for owners to step it up and be thoroughly responsible pet owners. Most of this never existed years ago. New and existing homeowners with pets must be prepared and aware. 

Thanks for your positive feedback!

dogs are a great way to meet the neighbors unless your dog is badly behaved!

Lise Howe - What bugs me are those dogs that appear to be well behaved when their owners are around but when they are gone, those dogs bark continuously. Unfortunately, dogs have a keen sense and know when to stop barking when Animal Control is called.
