Probably the most important thing for pet owners to learn and practice are good pet safety rules. It amazes me sometimes how many people are not safe with their pets. I would like to think that some of these people are just mis-informed and that they will become informed before their pet suffers a negative consequence over what their owner did or didn’t do. Just as it’s your job as a parent to keep your human child safe, it’s your job to keep your pet safe.
One of our goals here at Riley’s Place, is to provide information to help people become more informed. Our site may be dedicated to the German Shepherd breed and geared to helping GSD rescues, but that doesn’t mean we’re going to ignore other dog breeds, other breed rescue groups or other types of pets. In general, you’ll be able to apply some of the information you find here, to just about any pet but please use good common sense. We are not veterinarians or animal health professionals of any sort, nor are we trying to be. Never take information from any web site and consider it to be “gold” unless you check with your pet’s veterinarian.
