National Kids & Pets Day!

Posted on April 25 2017

Pet and Kids Safety Tips

April 26th is National Kids & Pets Day! There's nothing I love more than puppies... both human and canine. However, this holiday is a great opportunity to remind us all to keep kids safe around dogs. I mean, not all of them can be as well behaved as me. (And no one can actually prove I was kicked out of obedience school! As if!)

So here they are: Teddy's Top Tips for Kid and Dog Safety...

  • Always ask before approaching us... especially if you don't know us. And, keep away from dogs tied up with no owner present.
  • Respect our space... when you greet us, approach from the front and let us sniff your hand (make a closed fist). And, if we don't come up and greet you, it's best to leave us alone. 
  • Keep your face away from our face, and avoid staring directly, as that makes us feel threatened.
  • Stay away if we're eating or sleeping. We don't mean to, but we may startle or accidentally mistake you for food.
  • Do you feel afraid? If so, stand really still, hands at side, and look at the ground - don't run or scream. We'll find you very boring if you do this and we'll move along to something more exciting. 
  • Finally? Shower your dog with lots and lots of love. We don't mean to cause any problems, but sometimes we get scared too. 

That's it people. Now, let's poor some kibble and celebrate National Kids & Pets Day! 

Sniffs and Licks,

    Hi Mary, You definitely can/do get both — but the free shipping is applied to your final order or spend - not the value before any % or $ discounts are applied. For example, your order is $91 (thank you for ordering!) but then if you add the 20% off discount code, it does adjusts your final spend to $72.80. Not trying to be sneaky-we can make sure that’s clearly on the deals page.

    You’re offering promo code kidding April 25 & 26 and you site also says free shipping on orders over $89.00. My order is $91.00 and when I apply the promo code it takes away my free shipping! What’s up with that? Where does it say that if you apply the promo code you can’t have free shipping? I think that’s a rip off and sneaky. If a person orders on the 25 or 26 they should get both or you should at least spell it out that you don’t clearly on the home page with the offers. I didn’t see it.
