Petz Main strongly encourages hosts to do a routine integrity check of their backyard fence prior to letting their pack out each morning. To protect against vandalism, Petz Main highly encourages those with a prvacy fence secure their interior gate locks with padlocks.
The safest place for a dog during a tornado is in a crate. If there is no time to crate, try to get your pack to the safest interior room, preferably free of windows. Never attempt to evacuate dogs during a tornado.
If you can do so safely, leash your pack to the back fence farthest from the home. Be sure to provide the dogs enough separation. If you have a privacy fence, installing eye hooks for the leash to attach could be useful and store a stash of leashes outside.
