Your dog is, by nature, a trusting animal. It never crosses her mind that something might be dangerous. It is up to you as her owner to safeguard her environment and protect her from harm. Here are a few tips for protecting your dog outside the home:

  • Eliminate potential "dig" points
  • Destroy poisonous plants or shrubs, or ensure they are not 
  • Make sure your garbage can is secure and inaccessible
  • Clean up gasoline spills and antifreeze leaks immediately
  • Put mouse and rat baits out of reach
  • Provide fresh water so your dog will not search out unhealthy options
  • Install a barrier between your dog and flower beds/ gardens*
  • Survey your yard for sharp objects such as gardening tools

In case of emergency, get to your vet or local animal hospital, or call 1-888-4-ANI-HELP (888-426-4435). For more information visit the ASPCA's National Animal Poison Control Center at
