Let’s think safety on National Puppy Day


By Lisa Braxton

Today, Mars 23rd, is National Puppy Day, a special day to celebrate the magic and unconditional love that puppies can bring to our lives. Fondé en 2006 by Pet Lifestyle Expert Colleen Paige, National Puppy Day is considered an international holiday. As puppies and their owners are celebrated, let’s also keep in mind fire safety for all of our pets.

Pets are curious. They may bump into, turn on, or knock over cooking equipment.

  • Keep pets away from candles, lamps, and space heaters.
  • Keep pets away from stoves and countertops.
  • Some pets are chewers. Watch them to make sure they don’t chew through electrical cords.
  • Have working smoke alarms in every sleeping room, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of the home. Test them at least once a month.

The Pet Fire Safety tip sheet offers a number of other suggestions for being careful with our pets.
