Don't Forget Your Tags!

LOCAL 12 WKRC-TV Cincinnati - I Heart My Pet - Don't forget your tags
In Ohio, all dogs over three months of age must be registered (licensed) with the county auditor. The licensing of any dog residing in Hamilton County can be completed by using this mail-in form or by visiting any one of a number of convenient licensing agents. If you and your pet live outside of Hamilton County, please contact your local auditor's office for information.

Dog licensing is much more than a law you need abide by. The tags and the identification number they contain could also help return your prized pet to you should he or she become lost!

Vacationing with Pets

Vacationing with Pets Vacations are a lot more fun if you share them with your best friend!

If you plan to take your dog with you, carefull planning and safety precautions will make travel more enjoyable for both of you. Please visit the ASPCA Virtual Pet Behaviorist at www.aspcahebavior.org to find a number of articles that can make your travels fun for everyone!

SAFETY FIRST
• It's a lot safer for everyone if your dog is securely fastened or confined during car trips. A large dog in your lap or a small one bouncing around the accelerator pedal can be distracting and dangerous--and should you have an accident, your unrestrained dog might be thrown about the cab. Popular options for safe dog travel include dog seat belts, crates, and car barriers.

• Don't forget to microship your dog before leaving home, and attach an ID tag with your cell phone number to his collar. If you're travelling to multiple places during your trip and you don't have a cell phone, you can buy inexpensive temporary ID tags to use along the way.

THINGS TO BRING
• Pack a spill-proof water bowl, your dog's regualr food, and medications he takes and his favorite toys for playing fetch or tug.

• It's also a good idea to bring along something you can use to safely secure your dog for brief periods, such as a crate or an exercise pen.
