On today’s Pet Show co-hosts Bryan Dean and Dawn Marks and guest host Nick Trougakos talked about the American Kennel Club’s Responsible Dog Ownership Day Sept. 20 and the pledge that people can sign to be responsible dog owners. Some of these pledges sound like they would apply to all pet owners. Here are a few:
- I will socialize my dog via exposure to new people, places and other dogs.
- I will pick-up and properly dispose of my dog’s waste.
- I will adhere to local leash laws.
- I will never overlook my responsibilities for this living being and recognize that my dog’s welfare is totally dependent on me.
Bryan reported some news about a speeding hamster overtaking rush-hour traffic and a case in Oregon where investigators found 728 turtles inside a woman’s home. Nick also gave us some tips from the AKC about thinking first before becoming a pet owner.
