Gorgeous weather this weekend everyone! Make sure to get your dogs out there and share the perfect temperatures! It appears we have survived the worst of it, in Chicago, complete with an April snow this past week! Also, please be cautious for a lot of joggers out there (for all the big dog owners). It can be easy for a dog to get startled if they do not see or hear a jogger until the moment when they have to decide whether or not the individual approaching is a threat to their master. It might be safest to pull your dog into the parkway and off the sidewalk completely if a jogger does not appear to be changing their course. Avoiding a bite is much better than any other outcome. Feel free to share any other advice on how to avoid the crowded sidewalks and prevent altercations with other dogs and pedestrians.
