Punctuation Choice in Strange Sentence - if-conditional/list
I am currently writing a document intended to be informational. Perfect grammar is to be sacrificed for readability. I am stymied, though, at a punctuation choice in one particular sentence. It is a slightly strange sentence, but works best in the constraints of this document - clear wording, space, etc. The sentence follows this format:
If it rains, find the dogs, bring them inside, and wash their feet so they don't track mud everywhere.
With a standard if-conditional, the proper punctuation I am concerned with would be a comma, as in:
If it rains, find the dogs.
However, since I am in effect making a list of orders (which I am still not positive is perfect grammar), what punctuation mark would be suggested? I am currently leaning towards the dash/double-hyphen, but I am unsure.
