National Responsible Dog Ownership Month

September means back to school, pumpkins and the fall season. This month is also recognized as National Responsible Dog Ownership Month started by the American Kennel Club (AKC), aimed at helping pet parents raise happy and healthy dogs.

Owning a dog is not just a privilege-it’s a responsibility. These animals depend on us for, at minimum, food and shelter, and deserve much more. If you are considering taking a dog into your life, you need to think seriously about the commitment that dog ownership entails. If you already have a dog, you need to consider if you are fulfilling all your obligations as its owner.

Some of the basics of responsible dog ownership include:

  • Regular exams with your veterinarian, addressing issues like dental health, skin allergies and health issues that arise with age
  • Keeping your dog up-to-date with vaccinations for diseases like rabies, canine distemper and parvovirus
  • Maintaining a healthy weight for your dog by feeding a healthy diet and incorporating exercise into its lifestyle
  • Reducing financial stress by putting pet health care in your family’s budget
  • Making sure your dog has proper identification – optimally with both a microchip and a collar with your most current contact information
  • Ensuring your dog is kept safe from the elements, making sure it is protected during times of extreme cold or heat and always keeping it properly hydrated
  • Establishing natural disaster preparation plans in the event of emergencies, including creating an evacuation kit
  • Having spay or neuter procedures performed to curb the pet overpopulation problem
  • Lots of love and playtime,either indoor or outdoor play time. Well if you are out with your pets this water and dirt proof dog seat cover would be necessary for you: it is easy to use and clean.

what to prepare before you go to beach?


The beach is one of the very favorite places to go in the summer. Especially you can bring with your dog, it dig and run and swim for hours, really enjoy it . To make sure everybody has the best time possible, there are some precautions you should take. Be diligent and mindful of the beach’s perils and unfortunate incidents won’t bring dark clouds on your beach day.

First, make sure dogs are allowed at your chosen destination. If we are allowed, make sure you know the rules—Do we have to stay on a leash? Are there only certain areas we can visit or certain times of day we are not allowed? Are there protected wildlife of which you must be mindful, like sea turtles or shorebirds?

1. Pack a bag of necessities. If your chosen beach does not have a shady spot for your dog to cool off from time to time, bring a beach umbrella. You will want to insist that your dog takes regular breaks in the shade so he does not get overheated.

2. Also pack plenty of water and either a travel dog bowl (which you can roll up so it will take up next to no room in your beach bag) or a travel dog waterer.

3. Be sure your dog has a waterproof collar and ID tag incase he runs off.

4. Bring a sturdy, durable leash to restrain your dog. Most beaches that allow dogs require that they be leashed. Once your worn-in, trusty old leather leash gets wet and drug around in the sand, it might give up on you. Consider purchasing an extra nylon leash just for use at the beach that you know you can depend on.

5. Don’t forget to bring a towel for your dog as well as yourself. We get cold after we get out of the water, especially when we’re riding home in an air conditioned car.

I love having this in my backseat. I don’t have to worry about dog here getting all over my car. I have a yellow lab with a coat that sheds more than regular labs. This seat cover catches all of that hair. I also like the fact that it is black so I can see when it starts to get the need of cleaning.
