Friends Family and Their Dogs
These dogs are valuable members of the client's family. We cannot overstate the importance of caution around exit points. Please also be mindful of visiting dogs to the supported Petz Pack location.
It's Really best to put them away
Visitors will not be accustomed to how much caution is required when exiting and entering your location. We strongly suggest simply putting dogs away when visitors are present.
Stressed dogs are harder to predict
Visitors = Excitement. Excitement is a stressor. Dogs under stress may react poorly to interaction from your untrained visitor. Please limit interaction and/or employ extra safety precautions.
If you must have dogs around visitors
- Ensure Petz Pups have on their ID tags
- If you have a proper garage, the double containment approach is the safest way to allow visitors in and out of the home.
We have reasons to be this particular
- Install extra baby gates around exits
- Lock deadbolt from inside to prevent unexpected entry
- Install padlocks on the inside of privacy fence gates
This Makes your life easier
- Ask your visitor to text you when they arrive in lieu of knocking or ringing the doorbell.
Better safe than sorry
- Ask your visitor to be mindful of securing doors and gates
- Assist everyone in and out and beware of your door darting dogs
You don't really know these dogs
Explain to your visitor it's best their children avoid interaction. Some of these dogs may never have been around children. Many are rescues with deep seated fears.
It's all about controlling the energy
If you decide to introduce your pack to your visitor, take the safe approach by introducing them one at a time. Dogs competing for the attention of the visitor is how dog fights start.
Miscellaneous Lessons Learned
- Walk away if dogs begin competing with other dogs for your attention
- Do not pick up or lower dogs in front of or into a pack of other dogs.
- Please do not introduce toys or other items that can cause competition
Miscellaneous Lessons Learned
- Allow dogs to come to you and do not outstretch your hands.
- Avoid patting dogs on the head and leaning over dogs.
What about my visitor's dogs?
- The Petz Pack liability insurance has a strict no co-mingling clause .
- Petz Pack will not assume liability for incidents resulting from the introduction of a visitor dog.
Be cautious always
- Petz Pack strongly recommends being certain of the visiting dog's behavior in a multi-dog environment
