Sandy Island Beach, a beautiful little area near Syracuse, NY. This area is part of a system that extends 17miles of sun-kissed dunes and rolling waves along Lake Ontario. It is an inviting place where dogs and their human companions to indulge in carefree days of fun and relaxation. This seemed like the perfect spot to have one of my calendar sessions with the fun, water loving canine- Tanner.
July is normally a dangerous month for dogs. More dogs go missing during July than any other month of the year. While some of this may be a result of people traveling and outdoors more, there is a big surge right around July 4th- coincidentally when we are in the midst of fireworks season. Many dogs are significantly scared of these blasts of sound and run away. This July, we are not only facing the cacophony of sound from the fireworks, but also Syracuse has been once again been 'blessed' with the winds from the Canadian wildfires sweeping in smoke taking our air quality into dangerous levels. here are some guidelines for keeping your dog safe.
