July 15th National Pet Fire Safety Day

July 15th National Pet Fire Safety Day

Today was created to bring awareness to pet owners about what to do in a fire. We have N escape plan for the humans, do you habe one for your furbabies too…. But pets have also been known to protect people from fire too. Dogs seem to be the best at this, maybe because they are more sensitive to our needs and share many of those needs as well. The Dalmatian is recognized as one of the top fire dogs but oddly not because of it’s response to humans but how horses react to them. Back when horses were used to pull the fire engines Dalmatians were used to keep the horses calm.
