Road Safety Week

Posted by Linnaeus Marketing in News | Article permalink on Nov 15 2020

From 16-22 November, it is Road Safety Week in the UK. This week aims to inspire the country to take action on road safety, promoting lifesaving and awareness around speeding. When walking your dog, you should be extra careful, especially around this winter season. For more information on how to make sure your dog can be seen and other helpful tips, please see below:

  • Always make sure your dog is kept on a lead. For more tips on walking your dog, see our post here
  • Make sure you teach your dog road awareness by training them when to “stop” and “come away”
  • Wear light coloured or hi-vis clothing to ensure you and your dog can be seen
  • Ensure your dog is microchipped so you can be reunited with them in the worst case.
