Whenever you are going out with your furry pet, make sure you have enough supplies for the duration of your walk or shopping. These supplies include such items as diapers, water container, and biscuits to keep your pet from starving. The leash should be sturdy enough so it won’t go anywhere out of your sight. This is very important if it is your pet’s first time to experience life in the city, where it will see lots of strangers and other animals as well. It might get too excited or frightened, which is why it should have a proper collar and leash.
