Clanimal will never impose anything on anyone. However, when you notice all those situations daily that don’t make any sense, you have to agree that it’s more than time that society adjusts to the impact the animals have on our everyday life. It’s also more than time that society starts paying attention to an important and widely overlooked value, which is the concept of “BEING RESPONSIBLE”.
From the series “Why bringing your pet to public places!” #3
It is very important to remind you some details from a previous blog on what is a responsible owner:
- someone who is accountable for their actions and those of their pet;
- someone who possesses the humility to always learn about their pet and themselves;
- someone who respects the environment around them, meaning theirs and that of their pet, as well as the environment of everybody else (whether the others are pet owners or not).
Responsible owners will never drag their feet to act as mentioned above
So it’s up to the owners to make that their pet behave perfectly at all times while making sure that it remains calm and bothers nobody (see 1. above)! For example, if the owners notice someone’s fear (of the size or the race or discomfort), they should avoid walking by that person (see 3. above)
Maybe your pet will stop a robbery or even save the life of a passer-by on a walking-trail (or even your life), so why putting up barriers whenever these acts of bravery are performed in places where animal presence is prohibited?
Many pet owners meeting the above description
Clanimal is believes in the existence of many pet owners meeting the above description. They are part of the majority that you
never hear of, because you don’t notice them, for their pets are so “almost invisible” due to an exemplary behavior!
So, we formally invite you to share your story about all those owners that act so responsibly on a daily basis, but often stay in the shadows of “irresponsible” owners that keep us from enjoying life with our favorite pets! We will publish as many as we can (a text of 25 lines maximum, single-spaced)
Help them not to feel lonely by sending us stories at firstname.lastname@example.org.
