Top Tips for Keeping Pets Safe this Spring

Spring is a time of all things new, a season when many people get inspired to make changes. Whether new additions or new adventures, it’s what’s on everyone’s mind.

With that said, it’s important to be safe wherever you are, and whatever you’re doing. As safety experts, we’d like to offer you our tips for keeping your beloved pets safe this spring, so the season is fun-filled and worry-free.

Home Improvements

As the temperatures rise, everyone seems to have spring cleaning and home improving at the top of their list. Whether you’re painting, de-cluttering, or adding a new addition onto your home, keep in mind that your pets could get very curious, and could be put at risk. Be sure to use pet-safe paint and pick up any object they could choke on, such as nails and other small tools. The best way to ensure their safety is to confine your pets to a safe room blocked off by a gate. Our Wire Mesh Gate Line is the perfect way to keep them out of harm. Choose the appropriate size based on the size of your dog, and relax knowing your furry friend is safe.

Lawn and Garden

Nothing says spring like a garden in full bloom, but remember that fertilizers and insecticides can be fatal to a pet if ingested. And some of those fragrant flowers we favor are a lot less harmless than they look; lilies, for instance, are poisonous to animals. If you want to enjoy your green thumb and your pet’s company at the same time, our 108” Keepsafe is the perfect solution. It can be used to block off a one-car garage and allows you to keep your pet outside with you, yet safely confined—even if you don’t have a fence.

On the Road

Spring is in the air, adventures await, and the only one happier than you to hit the road is your dog, who looks irresistibly cute with his ears flapping in the wind. But his vehicle safety is just as important as yours, and this is ensured by keeping him secured in a pet-safe area of the car. Our PetShield Travel Barriers are the perfect way to protect your pooch while on springtime joy rides. And for SUVs or vans, our 3716 Bucket Seat Barrier allows the whole family (pup included) to ride safely together.850

Once you get to your destination—whether beach, picnic, or party at a friend’s place—you can keep pets and kids safe and away from harm (stairs, stoves, barbeques, etc). with our Play Yards, complete with patented Sun Shades.

We hope you have a great summer. Just don’t forget to stay safe!
