Little basic tips and instructions

When you want to bring your four-legged companion onto a terrace, it is important to keep him on a leash during the entire meal. Also make sure your dog stays at your table if you use a retractable leash. You must supervise your puppy so that he does not do his business on the terrace and be ready to pick up his little gift. The collection bag is essential to counter these unforeseen events. Beforehand, make sure your dog stays fresh and hydrated. To do this, it is best to choose a table located in the shade, offer your dog water from the pressure bottle or a retractable bowl , and dress him in his jacket or a refreshing scarf. .
