That seems to be the general consensus when it comes to companion animals and COVID-19.
Reports that a dog in Hong Kong repeatedly tested “weak positive” for the COVID-19 virus fueled worldwide concern that pets could indeed get the new superbug. While that concern appears to be groundless (at least so far), it does raise a question.
Why did the dog test positive, however weakly? One theory is that while the virus may have been present on the dog, the dog did not actually have the virus. Scientists know that coronaviruses can live on surfaces and objects, although not for how long.
In early March 2020, the World Health Organization declared that the COVID-19 novel coronavirus is now a global pandemic. In the panic over the spread of the virus, people are worried not only about their own health but the health of their dogs, cats, and other pets.
Dogs wearing face masks have popped up in photos across social media, causing pet owners everywhere to ask: can dogs get coronavirus?

Three years ago, Rebecca May and her husband adopted Ziggy and her sister, Harley, from a London shelter.

Some pups make excellent guard dogs — but this 6-year-old dog named Jakey uses her skills to protect something a bit unusual.
While most dogs stand watch over the house, Jakey sets a more reasonable goal. She watches over her family's bread when they're away. “She started this four years ago when we moved to our farm,” Katrina Frank, Jakey’s mom, told The Dodo. “Every time we would leave she would hide the bread.”

Because the safety of your dogs and home is at play, hiring just any pet sitter can be risky. You need to be able to trust the person looking after your dog when you are away. Here are a few things to consider before making your decision:
