Just a few hours ago, the Government implemented the new royal decree-law on the coronavirus that limits freedom of movement for all citizens except those who, for reasons of strict necessity, need to go out into the street. From those people who need to go to the supermarket to do the shopping to those who need to travel to go to work or have to take care of third parties to face this unprecedented scenario in our country.
A decree-law that contemplates, among other things, that We can go out to the street with our dog or our bitch to relieve themselves. Since then, there have already been several people who have resorted to these animals to go for a longer tour than they should and even to meet with third parties. In fact, there are those who have rented their pets so that third parties can benefit from having a dog.
Rules when taking your dog for a walk during confinement
After drawing the attention of several people, the National Police has had to explain on Twitter the Actions allowed during the state of alarm regarding taking dogs for a walk and feeding other animals. All this through an infographic in which we summarize, in a clear and concise way, the rules that we have to comply with every time we go out with our dog or our dog for a walk.
In the first place, the police clarify that it is not allowed to give our dog long walks: “Short walks, only to cover physiological needs.” Therefore, and if you are one of those people who used to take long walks, it would be better to reconsider to avoid a possible fine. Then the police force reminds us that We must not have contact with other animals or other people to avoid any type of contagion.
Walk your dog during off-peak hours
Among the rest of the actions, the National Police urges to bring a bottle of water with detergent to later clean the urine and bags for the feces. Finally, the infographic shows that we should walk our animals at off-peak times. On the other hand, the National Police have also offered a series of recommendations on feeding animals.
In the case of feeding feline colonies, from the police force they ask that we prioritize times with less influx and that we try to space it out as many days as possible. On the other hand, they also explain to us that we will have to feed and care for animals both on farms and in animal protection centers. In short, and if we have any type of animal, the police urge us to take the necessary precautions to avoid any type of contagion. Remember: short walks, during off-peak hours and always alone. Only in this way will we be able to cope with a virus that is spreading faster and faster in our country.
