These are probably all things you consider when you hear the wind blowing outside. But do you ever think about how your small pets handle being outside in these strong wind gusts?

On Tuesday, the NWS issued an “unofficial Small Dog Warning” on Twitter due to strong winds in northern Ohio and northwest Pennsylvania.

“Hold on to your pooch!” NWS said in a tweet.

We are seeing those same strong winds today, so the same advice applies!

Be sure to make sure both your trash can and your dog don’t blow away!
