The other day, a volunteer shared an article on leash etiquette on her Facebook, and we took notice. When you go on a walk, you make sure you have everything you need for your pooch—collar, leash, some treats to brush up on training, and a water bottle and always a bag for pet waste. But, what about leash etiquette—do you know the dos and don’ts for approaching other dogs you encounter on your daily walks?
If so, kudos to you; however, if you’re interested in a refresher, check out this blog posted on Dogster, Dog-Walking Etiquette: 7 Tips for a Better Walk by Cathy Weselby. These seven tips are quite basic, but are also great reminders for those of you who are new to the community, have a new pup, or are just looking to make sure you are respectful while out and about with your furry friend.
Do you follow any different petiquette when walking your dog? If so, let us know.
