  • Sunny and Sasha's tips and tricks

    Ensure dogs and cats wear their registration tags and details are up to date.

    Protect your mate and shut the gate when playing with your dog at home or in an exercise area.

    Leash, tag, and bag when going for a walk - keep your dog on lead at all times, unless in a signed leash-free area, and remember to dispose of the poo bag in a bin.

    Leave dogs alone if they are eating or sleeping to stay safe - jumping or sitting on their backs can hurt and make them cranky.

    Refrain from playing tug-of-war games, dogs love to play “hide and seek” instead.

    If you see a dog out roaming, tell an adult as it might not be friendly.
