Free E-book on Why Not to Vaccinate

Okay…will post this for folks interested.   BUT will include this cautionary note.   NOTE: I am NOT an advocate of never vaccinating your dog.  I do believe that dogs are over-vaccinated, and the with some breeds, waiting until the dog is older to start the whole process is better (aka the collie breeds).   Rabies…ever other year max, get titers done if you can afford to do so, and once the dog hits old age for that breed…. his titers should be well-established.  GET heartworm if you are heartworm prone areas.  Do your research … consider this part of that.  BUT don’t accept everything in this e-book as the ONLY way to do things.

Here’s a good site

Instant Agility. It’s a blog that talks about agility equipment design and how to perform the obstacles.

Most dogs love to work, and agility gives them a challenging and fun “job” to do. It can be a casual way for you and your dog to have fun in the backyard, or an intense activity performed on an official course against other competitors. In either case, you will need obstacles that your dog can jump over, jump through or climb on. That’s what we’re here to help you with.

Canada Day is Here, Fourth of July is coming

Remember many dogs DO NOT like fireworks. July 1st can be one of the  busiest day of the year at animal shelters around the country. Pets are usually found miles from their homes, confused, disoriented, exhausted, and often times injured.

Here are a few points to keep your pet safe during fireworks displays.

*  DON’T TAKE THEM.  It’s that plain and simple.

*  Don’t put your pet outside to wait for you to return home. Dogs left in backyards often get frightened and will climb or jump the tallest of fences. Dogs left on chains can snap the chain or injure themselves trying to get away.

*  If fireworks or loud noises upset your pet, make sure someone stays with them. We have seen dogs go through glass windows to escape. If you wish to tranquilize your pet, consult with your veterinarian;

*  If you plan on leaving your pet in the care of a friend for the weekend, please make sure they are aware of your pet’s behaviour, so they can take steps prior to the evening activities

*  Keep your dog inside during the festivities, and if possible, don’t leave him alone in the house.
*  Muffle the noise of the fireworks as much as possible by closing your windows and turn on the radio or television.
*  Make sure he has access to his crate or “safe place” during the show, and casually toss him a treat once in a while.
*  Talk to your dog in an upbeat voice and go about your usual activities. Coddling or babying isn’t advised: your dog takes his cues from you, so if he senses that you’re confident and unafraid, he’ll be more likely to respond in kind.
