Comfort & Safety:
Summer sunshine poses a threat to pets in vehicles. Bring water for yourselves and your animals - stay in shady areas when able if visiting on hot days. Be mindful of hot path and stair surfaces, which may cause discomfort/distress to pets when walking.
Winter can be extremely cold and wet. Many pets are not suited to exposure to prolonged chill. If you're cold, they're probably cold too!
Be a responsible pet owner - familiarize yourself with your pets and learn to recognize signs of discomfort.
