Field Notes

It is critical for dog owners to understand the types of hazards a dog may be exposed to in different environments, as well as the precautions that should be taken to mitigate any risk of injury or illness. BARK Safety Notices were written to encourage the sharing of knowledge as an intentional form of compassionate animal care.

BARK Safety Notices are not intended as a replacement for safety training, but as a supplemental message regarding dog safety and health.
