If you have a dark and cool place, you can store SOKKS®. SOKKS® Tubes stored properly have a shelf life of 3 years. Training aids should be stored in the original container in a dark, cool place. SOKKS® should not be frozen, nor should it be exposed to bright light and high temperatures for long periods of time.
A SOKKS® tube is completely non-toxic. It is absolutely safe for both the handler and the dog. If your dog swallows a training aid, he is still in some danger of intestinal injury and should be seen by a veterinarian. Normally it should pass without any trouble.
