The Vet 2U team delivering key safety messages

On Tuesday (27th March) we made a really exciting announcement that we are now working in partnership with a local Thanet mobile vet, Vet 2U. We have teamed up with Vet 2U, so that they can help us spread the key safety message amongst their clients and community about not entering the water if a doggie can’t get out or gets into difficulty, to call ‘999; and ask for the Coastguard.  The full article can be found on the RNLI website.

This initiative with Vet 2U is a fantastic example of helping to spread our safety messages by using local trusted businesses and organisations. More information on how to stay safe at the coast with your doggie can be found on the RNLI website. I’ve published a previous blog on dog safety whilst at the coast, which can be found by following this link. Keep a look out for our on-going dog owner/walker engagement beach sessions when we give out fabulous free yummy doggie treats and fab tennis balls.

Have a good, safe Bank Holiday and enjoy your Easter eggs!
