Summertime means plenty of indoor and outdoor fun. Whether you are lounging indoors or enjoying a barbeque, pool or beach trip, or campfire, humans and pups alike need to stay vigilant about fire. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) says pets are responsible for over 1,000 house fires every year in the United States, and an estimated 40,000 pets die in fires each year, mostly from smoke inhalation. In addition, July and August have been the peak months for both the number of large wildfires and acres burned since 2000. A little preparation goes a long way for keeping the whole family safe, canine companion included.
