Its that time of year where the wildlife is on the move. Dogs love the chase, it's in their blood. It's important the you have a strong "leave it" or "never-mind" command.
What's the harm?
Large mammals can do hefty damage in defense, leaving you with a tragic vet bill or worse. It is also a finable offence to let your pet harass wildlife. If the wildlife are having a hard winter the unnecessary stress can also be detrimental. The flee response could also put both animals at humans at risk when near roadways.
So remember to always watch your dogs whenever they are off leash.
Stay safe, scoop the Poop, and
