Adopt Rocky!

Rocky is the most loveable hunk you will ever meet. He is good with people and dogs and would like nothing more than to just hang out, go for walks, play, and give kisses. He has the softest fur and looks really good in sweaters. What’s not to like? This boy is still in search of a forever home!

Introducing New MeetUp Pack Walk And Social!

A couple of summers ago I was offering group social classes for my clients whose dogs struggled with reactivity, human/dog aggression, or lacked social skills. It varied from a couple of dogs each time to as many as 9! Unfortunately it dwindled in the summers following as it was hard to keep tabs on who could come and my schedule didn’t allow much time for it.

The same goes for group training classes. I’ve been asked about whether or not that’s something I’d offer and I always declined because trying to coordinate or keep track of people would be tedious. That’s all changed, however, with the application of MeetUp. A website that allows organizers to set up groups, message group members, know how many will be attending, and notifying group members of cancellations! That makes things a whole lot easer.

If only I knew about this at the start of Summer!

Well, better late than never! I’m hoping to get a few groups organized before the weather gets too cold. Some current ideas floating around are Pack Walks, Group Socialization, Former Client Obedience Tune Up Classes, and Group Obedience classes for those not looking for in-home training.

You can sign up for MeetUp group –>here<–.

Look Out For These 5 Poisons This Fall

The Fall season is here along with the changing color in leaves and the cool weather, but along with this change comes a few concerns as well. Concerns that could cost your dog their life if you’re not careful or are simply unaware of these toxins. So without further ado…

1. Chocolate – Being that it’s the month of the Halloween holiday, stores are stocked up with candy and of course a popular and favorite choice of candy is, Chocolate. You may know of someone who’s dog ate a small bar of chocolate and was fine, but what you may not know is that what each dog can ingest without consequence varies. A Chihuahua could eat a whole bar and be fine and a Golden Retriever can eat a little piece and may start having seizures.

The darker the chocolate the more dangerous it is for your dog to ingest. Bakers chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate are also very toxic. Be sure to keep your candy up and away from where your pup may be able to reach and be sure to watch your children should they be diving through their loot on the Halloween holiday.

2. Rat Poison – With the cooler weather setting in, rodents and the like will be on the look out for warm shelter. In order to protect our homes from infestations we will naturally use poisons to kill them, but this is also a great threat to our dog’s health, as well as the health of other animals that aren’t the target of rodenticides so please be considerate when using this method.

3 & 4. Compost and Mushrooms – I thought these two were related and decided to put them together. I was unaware of these myself, but have made it a point to not let my dogs eat anything they find on the ground so that has kept them away from the dangers these present.

5. Mothballs – It’s been so long since I’ve even heard of someone using mothballs, but it is still a potential hazard to your pet if you are not aware. After doing some research it appears the “classic” mothball smell that we may be aware of is because of the chemical naphthalene, which is more poisonous than the alternative, paradichlorobenzene. If you utilize mothballs in your home, be sure to place them in areas where your pet cannot access them and dispose of them immediately when they’ve served their purpose.
