The Days Just Keep Getting Busier And Busier!
I’m very happy I was able to spend some time this past weekend in Gilberts, IL to attend a seminar hosted by Jeff Gellman of Solid K9 Training. Was able to pick up a few things to add to my utility belt of dog training tricks. I also was able to grab a selfie with Jeff and meet a few trainers and people in the area.
I found the seminar to be very motivating as there were a number of people who traveled from all over the U.S. to find answers to their dog’s behavioral issues. There were people in attendance from Kentucky, Missouri, Wisconsin and Iowa from what I can remember. Clearly, there is a need for information and to see so many people willing to travel so far was very inspiring. That’s the very reason I got into dog training in the first place. To help families find the answers they need so that it could very possibly save the life of their dog.
Unfortunately, squeezing in the seminar and trying to also keep up with client visits, I was unable to record my weekly vlog. The weather did not help either as it has been raining all week. I hope to get everything back on track this coming Monday, as well as, putting more How To videos and Q&A’s.
Until next time.

What Chews Should I Choose?
Dogs naturally have a need and desire to chew. Not only is it their own way of helping to keep their teeth and gums healthy, but it’s mentally stimulating as well. Choosing the right chew can sometimes be confusing, there are so many!
Some long lasting chews I recommend: Antlers, horns, hooves, Himalayan chews, raw marrow bones, bully sticks.
Quicker but also great chews: tracheas, Achilles’ tendons, ears, snouts, duck feet.
If you choose to give your dog plastic or rubber chews, remember these are NOT edible. While they may keep a teething puppy or tough chewer busy, they can be hazardous if swallowed. Be sure to monitor at all times & discontinue use if pieces break off.
I do not personally recommend rawhides. While you can find some made in America, they have still gone through the same amount of processing as a poor quality rawhide. Cowhide is not digestible and can be very hard on the stomach & cause blockages.
Moral of the story: if it is a raw, freeze dried or dehydrated body part that you are familiar with, it is most likely very healthy for your dog to eat!
See you next month!
