Pedestrian Safety while dog walking
Earlier this year, during the pandemic, a teacher of an online alternative learning program in upstate New York reached out to me. She asked if I could so kindly link to an article relating to pedestrian safety while walking dogs. From what she told me, her students came across my website and blog posts while doing research for a school project. I thought it so lovely that I felt it needed to be shared.
Some highlights from the article:
Keep your dog(s) on a short leash
Cross the street safely
Cross single file
Be aware of runners and cyclists
Make sure you're visible
Move predictably (WOW, I know, right? :)
Don't blast music
Keep your head on a swivel
Don't look at your phone - put it away
