Follow Teri Hatcher's good example of responsible dog ownership seen here with her two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Klaus and Pip. Always carry:

  • A leash. Keep dogs on leashes when walking around town, even if they are voice-trained. Lead lengths of six feet are adequate for dogs of this size – that way you can easily manage and control your pets.
  • Waste bags. Not only because no one wants poo on their shoes, but not cleaning up after your dog leaves you subject for fines in many cities around the country. So you're not scrambling for leaves or other impromptu items, stock plenty of bags when you start out for a walk with your pet.
