A Few More things to Note
Animal aggression or attacks – this can happens so if it does take all information from the owner involved, their name, their dogs name, their vehicle, licence plate, get their vet name, is the dog vaccinated, for what and when and provide animal control.
A Little bit of a Heads Up of wildlife other than our Puppers…Please be aware of coyotes in spring/summer, mainly in the back field, but they do wander. We also have had sightings of deer, raccoon and for sure there are more critters out there because some of our dogs do seem to hang out in the bushes.
