Hedgehogs and Pets
Most dogs and cats will happily share the garden with hedgehogs, but if you are concerned about your dog’s interaction with hedgehogs (staffies, particularly, can be a source of concern), you could turn an outside light on before letting your pet out which will help to frighten any hedgehogs away. You could also put your dog on a lead on the last ‘patrol’ of the night to help keep hedgehogs safe.
Many pet owners are concerned about the possibility of fleas being transmitted between hedgehogs and pets. Fear not! Whilst hedgehogs can have fleas, they are host-specific fleas called Archaepsylla erinacei, and will not survive long on any other species: cat, dog, human or otherwise.
