Keeping Pets Safe This Christmas!

Here are some useful points for keeping your pets safe during this christmas:

 

“Trees and plants

  • Real Christmas trees are mildly toxic to some animals and the oils can be an irritant so artificial trees could be the best choice. Be aware these can still harm your pets if they like to chew, though.  Consider buying a smaller tree and raising it off the floor.
  • We all think about trees and decorations being spikey for children but they can be a hazard for pets too. Needles may get stuck in claws and throats and decorations may be very tempting to chew and then shatter, causing more hazards.
  • Cords and lights may cause a chewing and tangling hazard for pets.
  • Always make sure you shut your pets away from trees (artificial and real) and decorations whilst you are out of the house.
  • Mistletoe and Holly are both poisonous and should be kept out of the way of all pets (and children!)

Food

  • Lots of ‘human’ food is very bad for pets so never be tempted to share your Christmas dinner with them. Treat your pets by giving them pet specific treats and maybe a new toy.
  • Never feed your pets poultry carcasses as the bones may split once swallowed.
  • Keep your pets away from things we would consider treats – chocolate and grapes (and also raisins and sultanas) can be poisonous as can onions and garlic. They will be more than happy with their own treats.

 

Presents

  • Pets do not make good Christmas presents so please don’t be tempted. It is a disruptive time of the year with noise and people and if you have issues it can be difficult to get a vet’s help. If your child is very keen for a pet then get them a book on caring for it for Christmas and then think about getting one once all the decorations are put away for the year.
  • It can be fun to give your pet presents and a stocking for Christmas,but do make sure you buy them from a pet shop/vets and that your toy or treat is designed specifically for your pet.

 

Noise and disruption

  • Think about visitors – cats and dogs can get very upset with lots of people coming in and out of the house.  Make sure they have a quiet area where they can get peace and quiet and be surrounded by familiar things. Make sure they have access to water.
  • Fireworks at New Year can be very upsetting for cats and dogs. Make sure you walk dogs early in the day and shut cats in for the night. You can purchase special suits for your dog to wear and playing music can help sooth your pets.” quoted from http://www.netmums.com/lifestyle/pets/

Information on Romiley!

Having lived in Romiley for over 15 years and my husband all his life! I know quite a lot about the town itself and am very pleased to be apart of the community ! I love all the local walks around Chadkirk , Werneth Low,  around Guywood, Church Lane  ,  the canal and many more  ! Many dogs have enjoyed these walks .

Between Marple and Romiley is Etherow Country Park the biggest country park in Stockport ! I can walk to this from my house so I am very lucky!

I would like to share some information on Romiley-

History – “For centuries it was an agricultural area, until the late Victorian era, when it became a residential area, with a small district centre. There are four main schools: Romiley Primary School, Bredbury Green Primary and Greave Primary School, which is on the border with Woodley. Catholic education is provided at St Christophers Catholic Primary School in Romiley. Secondary education is provided by Werneth School and Harrytown Catholic High School. Romiley also has its own theatre, the Romiley Forum” From – .http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romiley

Chadkirk Chapel is a lovely place to visit in Romiley as well with dogs and children . Events are held regularly throughout the year at the estate .

“A beautifully restored 14th century chapel set in the heart of Chadkirk Country Estate.

Relax in the peace and tranquillity of the setting and learn more about the history of the chapel, with the legends that link it to 7th century missionary, St Chad.

Enjoy a walk through the surrounding picturesque woodland and along the Peak Forest Canal before stopping for refreshments inside the chapel.” – From http://www.stockport.gov.uk/services/leisureculture/visitstockport/museumsandgalleries/chadkirkchapelcountryestate/

I offer Dog Walking for owners who may be out at work all day , busy , someone elderly that would like companionship but needs help with walking or if you just feel like going out all day for relaxation without the dog !

At Aussie Dog Care I promote myself in being a friendly , reliable and professional dog walker. I will always try to walk your dog in an area that they  know and is suitable for the dog

We aim to give the right amount exercise desired by the breed making sure your dog is happy and tired when you come back home . At Aussie Dog Care we also tailor all walks to what you as an owner desire for you dogs.

On an ordinary Aussie Dog Care walk we will collect your dog from your home at a time you have given and walk for the specific time you have asked for perhaps longer. If your dog is wet or muddy I will dry all dogs as no muddy paw prints are left on the floor!

Aussie Dog Care as a business promotes itself in being a small family run business that walks local around Romiley. Dogs are never walked in a pack as I totally disagree with this method of walking.
