Your Pet’s Safety

Pets bring incredible joy to our lives and we love them in return. They also improve our chances of avoiding stress and depression. [1] You would love to be with your pet all the time. However there must be many times, because of your career, errands to run, activities with the kids, and more, your pet winds up home alone. Since you can’t be with them 24/7, how do you keep your pet safe?

 

Install a monitored smoke detector

We all know we should have a smoke detector in our homes, but using a fire alarm that only sounds when it detects smoke is insufficient. Pets can’t call 911 and, even if there is a pet door, your pet may panic and not know to flee the fire. With a monitored smoke detector, you will be notified immediately, and emergency responders as well, in order to get your pets out safely.

 

Home alone: smart security and pet safety tips

Your smart home can help keep your furry friends safe. From video surveillance that is just a click away on your smartphone to smoke alarm monitoring through wireless smoke detectors that communicate with a monitoring centre, smart home options can help ensure a pet emergency does not become a tragedy.

• Install smart home security cameras In-home video surveillance that provides live and recorded video on your smartphone can instantly reduce your anxiety about your pet’s safety at home. Being able to see your beloved pets curled up and snoozing away while you’re at work is a complete game changer for most pet owners.

• Keep your home at a comfortable temperature A smart thermostat will ensure your home is always a safe and comfy temperature for your pets even when the weather changes after you’ve left.

• Create a safe environment for pets Puppies, kittens and even some adult dogs love to chew. Be sure you keep electrical cords, phone chargers and batteries out of sight. While many dogs are fine alone and free to roam the house, not all dogs are safe or comfortable. As a responsible pet owner, you need to figure out the safest place for your dog. It could be a section of the house that is gated off, a single room or a crate. If you are going to crate your dog and will be away for more than 4 hours, try to come home during the day for lunch or have someone come by to visit your dog offering the welcome relief and exercise of a walk and some play.

 

Improve or shorten your pet’s alone time

• Hire a dog walker, even if it’s only a day or two per week. A teenage neighbour who would love a dog might be a wise choice to visit, play and walk with your dog for a very affordable price

• Provide stimulating, safe toys to occupy your dog 

• Leave a radio or tv on

• Get another pet so they can keep each other company
