Dog Park Etiquette

Littermates Tripp, Oliver, Lily and Barley enjoy a good run at the Dog Exercise area in Mukwonago, Wisconsin.

Littermates Tripp, Oliver, Lily and Barley enjoy a good run at the Dog Exercise area in Mukwonago, Wisconsin.

Is your dog a good candidate for the dog park?  

How should you handle "situations" there when they arise? (Because they most certainly will!)  

What's appropriate behavior and what's not?

Find out all this and more in this excellent article on The Whole Dog Journal.

 

By Pat Miller at The Whole Dog Journal

Depending on who you talk to, dog parks are either the greatest invention since microwave ovens or the devil incarnate – either the perfect place to exercise and socialize your dog, or the best environment in which to traumatize your dog, make him dog-reactive, and perhaps get him killed. We’re told that perception is reality, but these two perceptions are worlds apart. Which one is right?

They both are. Your local dog park can be a terrific place to take your dog, provided it is well-constructed, well-maintained, and well-monitored. It can also be you and your dog’s worst nightmare. What determines which perception will be your reality?

In a word, it’s all about etiquette. If you understand the rules of dog park etiquette – and if other park users also understand and follow the same rules, you can be in dog park heaven. When etiquette goes by the wayside, you have a classic recipe for disaster.

Individual Training Sessions with Debbie Karnes

 

JUST A FEW OPENINGS LEFT!

Debbie Karnes, owner of Canine Home School in Delafield, Wisconsin, is offering individual training sessions to help you with your specific needs on a monthly basis in our Mukwonago store! 

Starting May 19th from 3-6:30pm, you can schedule a half hour session for you and your dog to work on the problem of your choice with Debbie--for only $30!  

From her website:

"I will provide you with the knowledge that you will need to form a long-lasting relationship with your best friend.  Using force free,  positive reinforcement training methods you will see how quickly your dog wants to learn."  

 

Rotate, Rotate, Rotate

If you've stopped in to discuss food with us, you've probably heard us stressing rotating your pet's food

Holistic vets recommend rotating your pet's food--both brand and protein source--at least 3 or 4 times per year.  Many of us rotate each bag we purchase. 

Rotating foods (whether you are feeding raw, canned or dry) helps to build a more "cast iron" stomach, lessens the chance your pet will develop an allergy to something they are being fed every day, keeps them from getting "bored" with their food, or from going on a hunger strike if their food changes formulas.  

If you'd like to learn more, or have questions, check out this great FAQ article from Dog Food Advisor ---> Diet Rotation for Dogs

 

Pewaukee Nail Clinic this Saturday

Pewaukee's May nail clinic will be Saturday the 16th from 10am-2pm.  The service is provided by Klips by Kate and it is first come, first served. June's nail clinic is scheduled for Saturday the 20th. 

For future Pewaukee Nail Clinic dates, please refer to our Store Events Calendar or call us at 262.696.6052.  We will be having them monthly, just on varying Saturdays.

Callie is a 9-year-old Calico who is front paw declawed. She was surrendered due to her owner passing away. If you are looking for a lap cat, she is the one.  Although she is a little shy, if you hold her close, she is very lovable.  A quiet, patient home is where Callie would thrive.

And the thunder rolls...

It's spring, and that means thunderstorm season is beginning. It also may mean hiding, panting, pacing, shaking, stressed-out dogs.  Is your pet one of them?  

Understanding why they are truly afraid can benefit us in easing their fear.  Lori Mendelsohn Thomas of Wisconsin Pet Care has written a brief, excellent article entitled, "How to Calm a Dog that is Scared of Thunder" that gives us some insight into our pet's astraphobia--fear of thunderstorms.

Read more about Thundershirts at endoftheleash.com or stop in and talk to one of our helpful staff.

Read more about Thundershirts at endoftheleash.com or stop in and talk to one of our helpful staff.

One of Lori's suggestions is the use of a Thundershirt. Thundershirts are highly rated for effectiveness in dogs AND cats, and we have them at End of the Leash!  Stop in to see what they're all about, or read about them on our webstore.

Here's an excerpt of something you may not have known about a dog's fear of thunderstorms:

To understand what happens to a dog during this time, you have to understand the acute sense of hearing they have. Dogs can hear two times, if not more, than a human can.

During a thunderstorm, the atmosphere is filled with atomically charged molecules of static electricity. There are sudden changes in the barometric pressure, rolling claps of thunder shaking the house and bright lights flashing.

Since dogs are more sensitive to noise, there may be hissing, crackling, or high-pitched sounds they hear, but we don't. As they hear the earth moving, literally, it causes special fears and anxieties that even humans don’t understand.

It's Here--Allergy Season

 

Does your pet suffer from seasonal allergies?  How do you know, and what do you do? Read this for some advice from Dr. Becker!

Excerpt from Dr. Becker's article at healthypets.mercola.com:

Allergies are extremely common in today’s cats and dogs, and take the form of either food or environmental allergies, including seasonal allergies. Some unlucky pets develop allergies in both categories.

Symptoms of seasonal allergies in dogs and cats are most frequently skin-related and include itchiness, inflammation, and hot spots. Allergic animals can also have ear problems and respiratory issues.

Seasonal allergies can turn into a year-round problem if steps aren’t taken to prevent exposure, aggressively manage symptoms, and ensure your pet’s immune system is strong and resilient.

Dr. Witte Speaks on the Canine Flu Virus

A message from Dr. Deanna Witte of Witte's Natural Veterinary Care in Sharon, WI, regarding the canine influenza outbreak:

I have been getting many questions regarding the canine influenza virus outbreak. Yes, there is a vaccine available. It is a series of two vaccinations given 3 weeks apart. After EACH vaccination your dog's immune system will be compromised for about a week--meaning more susceptible to disease at that time. If you are traveling to Chicago, or any highly populated area where your dog may be exposed, vaccinating right before you go is not the best idea. My recommendations are if you don't have to travel with your dog right now, don't. If you do, or if your dog is very social and goes to highly dog populated areas, your best bet is to help boost your dog's immune system to be able to fight off disease more readily. This means:

  • Feed a balanced, species-appropriate diet.
  • Avoid unnecessary vaccinations and overuse of veterinary drugs and chemical parasite and pest preventives.
  • Reduce the environmental toxins your dog is exposed to, which will in turn lessen his toxic burden and biological stress.
  • Talk to your holistic vet about natural immune boosters, herbs and essential oils to support the immune system.

Every Wednesday, Dr. Deanna Witte of Witte’s Natural Veterinary Care visits our Mukwonago store.  She provides holistic options consultation services as well as spinal manipulation and cold laser therapy for your pet!  

Appointments are 20 minutes and include consult and adjustment. 

Please call 262.363.3338 to reserve your appointment.

Protect your pet from poisoning

Each year, tens of thousands of pet parents reach out to their veterinarian or an animal poison control hotline because they know or suspect their pet has ingested a toxic substance.

Most pet owners are aware that there are products around their home that are toxic to their dog or cat, for example, antifreeze or rat poison. But many don’t think twice about the potential toxicity of the medications they take on a regular basis.

In this video, Dr. Karen Becker, a proactive and integrative wellness veterinarian, talks about several human medications that are deadly to our pets.

How to know if your cat is constipated and how to treat it

Dr. Karen Becker touches on an unfortunately common problem in kitties--constipation--in her article, "The Most Common Cause of Kitty Constipation."  

She says:

Not every constipated cat strains or cries in the litter box, or vomits, or stops eating, though those are all also signs of constipation. In fact, some poor kitties are constipated most of their lives and their owners don't know it because they aren't aware of the more subtle signs that point to a problem. I have had many guardians tell me, "It's normal for my cat to only poop every third day." I disagree. Expelling bowel toxins on a daily basis is an important part of the natural detoxification process.

--->  Click here to read the entire article and learn the signs to watch for and how to treat it.

Alice is a 3-year-old Brussels Griffon Mix who came to HAWS as a stray. If you are looking for a companion that is playful and full of life, Alice is your gal! We think it is important that if Alice goes to a home with kids, they should be at least teens so they are able to read her signals. She would be comfortable in a home without cats but possibly okay with a small, relaxed dog.

Forest is a 3-year-old Domestic Short Hair who came to HAWS as a stray.  Is your home available that he could branch out? If so, he would make a great addition to any family. His sweet disposition and handsome looks will catch anyone's eye. 

 

Happy spring equinox...a day early!

Banjo is a SWEET senior Black Lab! He came to us as a stray, so his age is our best guess; approximately 12 years old. Although he is considerably peppy for an older boy! His potential forever home could be filled with children of any age, cats or dogs, he likes them all!!!!  He is VERY motivated by food and treats but is remarkably gentle.

Country Gals for Adoption!

 

This Week's Adoptables from HAWS

The lucky family that adopts one of the pets featured here on our blog will receive a coupon from HAWS good for a “congratulations” gift bag from End of the Leash!

To learn more about how to adopt through HAWS, please visit their adoption page.  You may also give them a call at 262.542.8851.

Reba, Dolly, Miranda, Shania & Carrie are a girl-supergroup of Roborovski Dwarf Hamsters. They are very social creatures and are much happier living together instead of alone, so they'll need to be adopted in groups (or altogether!).  They are tiny and very high energy hamsters who rarely sit still unless they are sleeping. This makes them hard to handle...and probably not the best pets to live in a child's bedroom. But, since they are lots of fun to watch and very entertaining, you'll want them in your living room, family room, or rec room so you don't miss a minute of their antics!

 

Morise is a very sweet 2 year old neutered male surrendered in November of 2014 and currently residing with his friends at Hooves and Paws Pet & Equine Supply in Oconomowoc.  He spends his days there basking in the sun and greeting all of the customers.

Lulu.jpg

Lulu is a very special dog looking for an equally special home.  She is not a fan of a lot of action and would do well with an adult home.  She is very smart, as the Mod Squad can attest to, and is quick to learn and loves “her” people!  Stop by HAWS to learn more about this sweet girl!

Gordan.jpg

Gordan is a playful 5 year old cat who is currently living at PetSmart in Pewaukee as part of special adoption partnership.  He loves visitors and accepts them during any store hours.  He still acts like a kitten when it comes to playing so a family with older caregivers would be perfect for this active boy!

 

Hope you're having a PAWsome new year!
