Are you planning a summer vacation with the family? Many of us like to take nice vacations in the summer and we look forward to it for a long time. We plan everything out so no detail is missed, no excursion over looked. However, how many of us take the time to think about what the family dog is going to be doing while we are on vacation?
Dogs like to feel safe and they feel safest when they know where they belong. They are not at their best without clear, well-defined rules and clear cut boundaries. This is the why factor for the value of crate training your dog. So, to crate train your dog, and to use the crate throughout the dog’s lifetime, you are providing the dog with a safe place to rest and a safe place to be in your home… as well as your car.
Do you wear a seatbelt? I’m sure you do for a few reasons, right? First of all it’s a law, written to protect people from flying around in the event of an accident. Secondly, we wear seatbelts because we are having more fun being alive then dead, right?
Q: I have a new puppy and when I take him for a walk, he wants to run up to all of the dogs in the neighborhood. Is this a good idea?
A: This is not a good idea for several reasons. The question to ask yourself is this: what do you want your dog doing for the rest of its life? What you do with your dog even as a puppy is what he thinks he will be allowed to do for the rest of his life.
The ticks are very bad already this year so please make sure you have your dog on some type of flea and tick preventa-tive. If you use Frontline Plus, we carry it here and are more then happy to help you with it. It does not matter to me what you use but please use something. If your dog comes to play or board and is found to have fleas, we will be giving your dog a flea bath immediately and a Frontline application. You will be charged for it that day. There is no exception to this.
