WHY do peo­ple let their dogs wan­der about?

Keep them on a leash if they are out with you and if you are not out with them please make your yard se­cure so they can­not get out.

With us head­ing into sum­mer, it is more im­por­tant than ever that dogs do not wan­der as it is not fair if the dog through hu­man stu­pid­ity hap­pens to get hurt, killed or bites some­one and then there is the great out­cry to kill the dog.

Look af­ter your dog by mak­ing sure it has proper shel­ter, plenty of wa­ter, wears a col­lar with a tag for iden­ti­fi­ca­tion in case it gets out or some crim­i­nal lets it out.

En­sure the dog is mi­crochipped (this helps with iden­ti­fi­ca­tion as well), ster­ilised, fed prop­erly and not left on its own for days or weeks on end with­out some­one look­ing af­ter it. MAR­GARET RYAN, Bal­la­jura.
