Quick Clicks
Keep your dog safe

With the official start of summer (June 20) right around the corner, remember how deadly keeping your dog unattended in your car can be, even for a short period of time.
If you see a dog locked in a hot car, what can you do? There are only 14 states with "Good Samaritan" laws that permit a person to break into someone's car to rescue a pet - Georgia is NOT one of them.
A new state law in Georgia effective July 2019 does provide immunity to law enforcement who damage cars when rescuing people or pets, so in Georgia, call 911 for assistance.
While waiting for help, take down the car's make, model and tag number and if there are businesses nearby, notify management to make a store-wide announcement to try to locate the owner.
Loose Leash Walking
Have you ever observed a group of dogs walking calmly next to each other, side by side?

Neither have I. Walking side by side simply is not a natural canine behavior. It’s easy to teach cues like sit or down because dogs naturally sit and down. But loose leash walking? Left to their own devices, most dogs will dash, dart, sniff and run circles around their owners. This explains why loose leash walking is so challenging to teach
Most dogs also learn early on that pulling works; it gets them where they want to go faster.
