  • Familiarizing Your Dog With People in Face Masks

    14 May 2020

    For the first time in two months, since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, I ventured into a grocery store to pick up some items to make meals for a sick friend’s family. Prior to that, during stay at home orders, my husband had been running the necessary errands while the kids and I pretty much stayed at home or walked the neighborhood. My hubby had been telling me each week how things were changing at the stores to prevent the rapid spread of the virus.
