Be Careful Where You Walk Your Dog This Summer

pet safety during summer

Taking care of others isn’t always easy. Often times, the other person or creature needs constant supervision to keep them safe and healthy. Without a constant, watchful eye, the dependent could cause trouble, get hurt, or worse. This is often the case with pets, especially dogs.

Dogs have a tendency to be more high maintenance than cats. Of course, this isn’t to say there are no high maintenance cats out there, but dogs take the lead. They need to be walked and cleaned regularly. Luckily, with summer here, walking dogs is no big deal. The mornings and evening in summer provide the best weather for taking a pup on a nice stroll around a park or along a hiking trail. However, there is a danger for dogs lurking along trails and out there in the wilderness, one that many people would not initially expect.

Foxtails Can Be Harmful to Dogs

Everyone knows that summer brings warmer weather with it. While this warmer weather can be enjoyable for going outside, it cooks the landscape. As plants begin to dry up, many of them begin to seed before dying. One grass in particular has what, at first glance, may appear harmless, but in actuality can be dangerous to dogs. These plants are called foxtail grasses.

Foxtail grasses are clumps of grasses that come in varying sizes. The grasses can be recognized by their fluffy looking flower and seed cluster. These seed clusters often hold hundreds of seeds that all look like tiny foxtails, which is where the name comes from.

A person has often encountered these seeds while hiking when they feel something poking them in their sock. These seeds are great at getting lodged into anything scraggily, such as socks, and can be very uncomfortable. Luckily, when a person feels the seed poking them, it can be removed easily enough with a bit of firm pulling to untangle it. Unfortunately, for fury companions, getting stuck with one of these seeds can be more harmful.

These seeds like to get lodged in dog’s furs, ears, and noses. Not only is this likely incredibly annoying for the poor pooch, it can cause a bit of harm to the pup if left untreated. The seeds can end up getting lodged further into the skin, where it can cause an infection. The infection can become lethal to the dog if left untreated.

In order to keep dogs healthy and happy, and owner needs to brush down their dog after any walk. This should remove any foxtails from the pup’s fur. Then the owner should checks for any foxtails in their dog’s ears, nose, and in-between paws. If any are found, they should be removed as soon as possible. If things start to get bad, the person should take their dog to the vet.

Keep an Eye out for Foxtails

After California’s surprisingly rainy spring, there are plenty of foxtails out their just waiting to get lodged in some poor dog’s fur. A dog owner should choose their walking locations carefully, and avoid any areas where foxtails. A person should also weed their yard and get rid of any foxtail grasses there to help keep the yard safe for dogs.

All any good dog owner wants to do is keep their pup healthy and happy, and keeping the pooch away from foxtails is a great way to do that. Has your pooch ever had a bad encounter with foxtails? Do you have any tips for dealing with foxtails, or for any other problems that a caring dog owner should know about? Share them in the comments below and help others keep their pups safe from harm.

Road Trip Checklist

rancho-cucamonga-bailbonds

Summer is the perfect time to take a road trip with friends. It is vacation season and the weather is perfect for you to drive your convertible with the wind blowing in your hair. Whether you have a destination in mind or you prefer to just drive, make sure you have packed your essentials such as sunglasses, sunblock, swim suits, and have your driving playlist ready.

Before you get on the road, make sure to do a safety check of your vehicle.

  • Check that all exterior lights of the car work properly: head lights, tail lights, brake lights, signal lights, and high beams.
  • Make sure your horn is working, and loud for others to hear.
  • All passengers need to be wearing a seatbelt. Make sure those function properly.
  • Hopefully it will not rain, but in case it does, you will want your windshield wipers working.
  • Take a look at your tires. Do they need air? Are the treads good to withstand your road trip? Take a spare tire with you as well.
  • Open up the hood of your car and fill up the fluids.
  • Get your brakes checked and make sure they are good to go.

By making sure your car is road trip-ready, you are taking extra precautions to avoid accidents. In addition, you could also be saving yourself from being pulled over and ticketed. A few extra minutes to look over your car can save you thousands of dollars, if you really think about it.


If you think you will be driving across state borders, keep in mind that driving rules might not be the same.


For example, you might not be allowed to make a right on a red light or you might not be allowed to pump your own gas at a gas station and instead, a store clerk is supposed to do this for you. Overall, drive with safety in mind, as you would anywhere, because getting ticketed, pulled over, into an accident, or arrested is a cost no one wants to worry about having to deal with, especially out-of-state.

Credit is most peoples’ preferred method of paying for things, especially if these things are on the more expensive side, like bail. However, most people wonder if paying for bail negatively affect credit score? Does it look bad on my statement?

How Long Until I Can Put This Case To Rest?

call-rancho-cucamonga-bailbonds

When you have been keeping up with legal cases in the news, have you ever wondered why you are hearing about a trial finally starting for a crime that happened last year? Why did they have to wait this long to go to court? There are a number of factors that go into determining how quickly a case is taken to court.

For Infractions

Resolving infractions can usually be done without heading to court. These are the least serious crimes, like traffic tickets and minor violations. You typically have to pay a fine and maybe complete community service or traffic school. However, if you wish to contest your infraction, you will need to request a court date; but even then, one day in court is usually all it takes.

For Misdemeanors and Felonies

Misdemeanors and felonies are taken to court, and how soon the first court date is, depends on the extent of the crime, whether or not you made bail, and the court’s availability. For instance, if you cannot make bail, your court date would usually be sooner than if you did post bail. This is because people have the right to a speedy trial. For misdemeanors, court dates are to be no later than 30 days after arraignment, which occurs within 2 days of arrest, and is when the defendant is formally charged with the crime. Defendants can waive their right to a speedy trial if they wish for their lawyers to have more time to prepare. For felonies, court dates are set within 60 days of arraignment; defendants have the right to waive this as well to gain additional time to prepare.

We hope this all made sense and we understand that the laws, and bail, can be a headache to try and understand, so we invite you to ask us questions. If you need a bail bond for yourself, or a loved one, please contact Rancho Cucamonga Bail Bond Store immediately.

We can be reached 24/7 online and at 866-736-6977 .
