Don't Miss Shorty!


shortysfreedomtour-small.png

In two days, Shorty Rossi of Animal Planet’s Pit Boss WILL BE AT END OF THE LEASH MUKWONAGO!

We can’t wait to see you there! Come and hear Shorty speak about his passions: breed awareness, fighting BSL (Breed Specific Legislation), fighting for animal rights, spay and neuter clinics, promoting his book Four Feet Tall and Rising, motivational and keynote speaking, and promoting his cigar line.

Join us at our Mukwonago store THIS FRIDAY, October 12th from 4-6pm. We’ll have prizes, raffles, give-a-ways, and most importantly—Shorty!

 

Introducing the Pawplexer!

The Pawplexer was created to offer an extra challenge to those dogs who love to chew, but may chew through a Benebone quickly. The Pawplexer is like having 2 toys in 1!

The chew itself is made much like a Benebone: crafted in the USA with American-sourced nylon and flavored with 100% real food ingredients.

The Pawplexer was designed so it can hold its own as a standalone chew. However, even more fun and creativity comes from what you put in the Pawplexer.

End of the Leash carries the small size (for dogs under 30lb) in all 3 flavors: bacon, peanut, and chicken.

 

New treats from Wag

Check out the awesome new goods from Wag! We think your dog will love them. Stop in one of our stores and our friendly staff can tell you all about them!

End of the Leash now has:

  • Goat Horns

  • Beef Tripe

  • Kangaroo cubes (as well as kangaroo liver, jerky, and filets—not pictured)

  • Venison Jerky

  • Green Lipped Mussels

Bring Love In with WO and #buyoneGIVEtwo


End of the Leash is excited to announce a special new addition to our toy offerings—WO!

Every time you buy a WO dog toy, 2 nutritional meals are given to orphaned children and widows. #buyonegivetwo

What is WO? It stands for “widows” and “orphans”. Each WO product you purchase directly funds meals for widows and orphans globally. WO is partnered with an organization in Ethiopia called Bring Love In (BLI) to help feed orphans and widows in their organization, thereby creating a tangible change—daily, globally. These meals in Ethiopia often represent the highest amount of nutrition that these folks get in any given day.

WO’s dog toys are interactive and safe. They are engineered to flex your dog's muscles and mind. We carry WO’s Bones (small and large) and Disc.

WO Pet material is BPA-free, phthalate-free, non-toxic and FDA compliant—important when toys come in such close contact with your pet.

 


Looking for unique chews?

We now have Lamb Tails and Wild Goat Ears by Barking Buddha!

Lamb Tails are great for small to medium dogs. They are free range, grass fed, and have a pleasant scent. Not smoked and no smoke flavor added.

Wild Goat Ears are super thick and great for larger dogs! They are additive, chemical, and preservative free. They are 100% digestible and a great alternative to raw hide chews.

Barking Buddha Pet Products are made in an FDA approved facility and sourced from South America.

Calming Options for Your Pet


Summer thunderstorms keeping you and your pet up? Or does your pet have an aversion to loud noises in general? Especially with the upcoming Labor Day weekend, we may yet still hear more fireworks!  

We have many calming and anxiety-reducing product options at End of the Leash. We'd love to help you out!  Stop in and chat with our staff and we will help you choose which one, or combination of ones, work for you and your pet!  Here are videos on two great choices we offer: July Third by Herbsmith and Pet Releaf CBD and Hemp Infused Pet Products.

 

We also love this article by The Humane Society of the United States It gets into the nitty gritty of helping you understand why your pet is afraid of certain noises, which is very important in properly assisting them during the stressful scenarios. Many times destructive behaviors are done out of fear, and doing certain things--like punishing or crating--can possibly make the problem worse. Please check out this excellent article, AND learn how you can help your pet overcome his fears!

Giving Corn Cobs to Your Dogs--Just Don't Do It!


Ah, ears of sweet corn. Those juicy, crunchy, buttery, salty treats of summer! And of course, who doesn't want to share the bliss with their favorite pooch? 

Well, go ahead and indulge Fido with some nibbles of kernels if you choose, but toss the cob! Be sure to secure the spent cobs FAR and away, in a bag, in the trash bin, in the garage, secure from any sneaky doggie snoops. 

If you suspect your dog has gotten into the trash and eaten cobs (or any other food/foreign object), call your veterinarian immediately. Some symptoms you may notice are:

  • vomiting or dry heaves
  • diarrhea (or straining)
  • not eating
  • painful abdomen
  • lethargy

A dog's body cannot break down the cobs and there's a good chance they will get lodged in the intestines causing a possibly fatal obstruction.  Thankfully, Dozer was a lucky boy and recovered.  Avoid a possible trip to the emergency vet, or even worse--just say no to giving your dog (or cat!) corn on the cob!

A Well-Rounded Summer for Your Pet


At End of the Leash, we strive to provide you with food, treats, toys, and healthcare products that give your pet all she needs to help her reach her happiest and healthiest potential.

Summer is still here, so we've put together a few things we think are important for your furry friends to enjoy summer safely and have plenty of energy to do it!

 

First--don't forget the sunscreen!

My Dog Nose It was created to keep your best friend safe from the environment they love to play and be in! Completely natural and water resistant, this paraben-free sun protector is safe to use on any Fido or Fifi.

Stop in at End of the Leash to look into this and many other helpful summer products for your pets!

 

Second--fuel up with raw

Introducing Small Batch, again!  Our stores will both be receiving in the Small Batch frozen foods this week for both cats and dogs. We already have the freeze dried food as well as treats.

Come see us to learn more, or get some details from one of our previous blog posts: Introducing...Small Batch!

Here's what the Small Batch folks have to say about their frozen raw formulas:

We take great pride in our sourcing, using wonderful local farms and ranches. Just ask us and we’ll tell you who they are! 

Additionally, we strive to only use meats that are free-range, pasture raised and always free of hormones and antibiotics. Our produce is 100% certified Organic and our supplements are always pure, organic, and unrefined. No HPP (high pressure pasteurization) always 100% raw, the way nature intended.

 

Dr. Becker's first aid kit list

firstaidkit.jpg

We love Dr. Karen Becker of Mercola's Healthy Pets!  Once again, she comes through with an excellent and indispensable article on creating a first aid kit for our animal companions. It's easy, and once you've put it all together it will be at the ready for nearly any emergency you may encounter.

We've made it even easier for you by slightly condensing the article into a 2-page article/list of everything for your first aid kit!

Get the Best at EOTL


As always, End of the Leash is continually searching and researching for the best treats, toys, food and good stuff for you and your furry companions...and the planet!  Here are some of the newest items we have for you in store. Come over and check them out!

 

New Himalayan Dog Toys

Himalayan's Loom Toys empower the women of Nepal.  100% of the profit Himalayan makes on the loom toys goes directly back to Women's Skills Development Organization (WSDO) in Nepal. The fabric of these toys is 100% cotton that is hand-woven, dyed with natural products like pomegranate, tea and copper, and then stuffed with allo wool. They are truly beautiful works of art and labors of love as pet toys!

Himalayan also makes felted wool toys. They are made from 100% wool with all natural dyeing materials, are chemical free with no rubber core, durable, and biodegradable, too!

EOTL carries Himalayan's Felty Bones, Felty balls, Felty rings, as well as the elephant, whale, dino and giraffe Loom Toys.

 

New Stella & Chewy's Wild Weenies

  • Butcher-shop quality treats that will make your dogs go wild!
  • All natural, 100% freeze-dried raw
  • Grain-free; no fillers
  • 97% muscle meat and organ meat
  • Unique shape and texture
  • Made in our own USA kitchen
  • Perfect for training and treating!

End of the Leash carries all flavors--duck, lamb, red meat, game bird, grass-fed beef, and chicken.

 

New Unique Treats by Scout & Zoe's

One of Scout & Zoe's treat lines is part of a project called Scout & Zoe's Fish on a Mission(R).  Their Carp Planks and Carp Spears (for cats, too!) treats are included in this project. They also have other carp treats including Carp Bubblers, Carp Eye Candy, and Carp Puffers. As shared by PetPr:

Each treat is high in nutritional value due to an abundant concentration of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are associated with prevention of kidney protection, overall well-being, and diseases caused by aging.

Carp are free from pollutants such as PCPs, Mercury, and other metals due to their filter-feeding mechanisms.

“Unlike what may happen at other pet treat companies, I actually eat the pet treats myself,” noted Cindy Dunston Quirk, Founder of Scout & Zoe’s Premium Pet Products.

A friend of the environment, Dunston Quirk selected carp in part due to the impact it has on rivers and lakes; carp are known to be prolific and to clog the waterways. The company helps American waterways by using the services of local fishermen to gather the invasive carp, which are then turned into treats by a family owned contract manufacturer and then packaged by adults who are intellectually disabled and are learning job skills to help them live life on their own terms.  

 

End of the Leash carries all of the above carp treats as well as several of Scout & Zoe's other treats, including Banana Carrot crunchy cookies, and many dehydrated offerings such as Chicken & Apple Bites, Chicken Jerky Sticks, Duck Delights, Ox Tails, Green Tripe Sticks, Honey Baked Ham, Veggie Hearts, Salmon Coconut and Venison Jerky.

 Ella is a 3 year old Pointer Mix. She would do best in a home with teens and older. At first she is shy but earning her trust is worth it! She enjoys her food so much that she should be the only pet in the home.

Is Your Pet Ready For the 4th?


july4th_hiding.jpg

Did you know that July 5th is the busiest day of the year for animal shelters?  Fireworks noise, smoky smells, parties, the chaos of many people in your home, barbeque food and drinks, summer games and activities--all the unfamiliarity may strike fear into many pets, causing anxiety, disorientation, and at worst, escape from your home to find safety and quiet.  These can easily be prevented by following some simple guidelines to ensure your pet's safety and well-being.  

Dr. Karen Becker of Mercola Healthy Pets has an excellent list of 10 guidelines to help ensure your pet is comfortable and safe during the holiday.  

Top 10 July 4th Dos and Don'ts for Pet Owners (click link for entire article)

  1. DO ID your pet. In the event your pet is lost during all the confusion and commotion of holiday get-togethers, make sure he or she can be identified with an up-to-date ID collar or tag, permanent tattoo, or microchip. Even if you feel there's no way in the world your dog or cat can escape, it's better to expect the worst and hope for the best.
  2. DON'T apply human sunscreen or insect repellent to your pet. Make sure to use products designed specifically for your dog or cat, or that are vet-approved, all-natural human sunscreens. If your pet happens to ingest a sunscreen product, it can cause excessive thirst, drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, and lethargy. Insect repellents containing DEET can cause neurological problems in pets.
  3. DO keep party and barbeque foods out of reach of your pet. Feed your dog or cat his regular diet for the holiday, and be especially careful to secure potentially toxic people foods like chocolate, coffee, onions, grapes, raisins and bread dough. Consuming the contents of the grill grease trap is a common cause of summertime pancreatitis in dogs, so make sure to keep Fido away from the grill, in general.
  4. DON'T give your pet access to glow jewelry. If eaten, it can cause excessive drooling, GI irritation, and potentially, intestinal blockage.
  5. DO keep alcoholic drinks out of reach of your pet, and insist your guests do the same. Beer, wine and liquor can poison your dog or cat. Depending on how much is ingested, your pet can become very intoxicated, weak, depressed, and can even slip into a coma. Severe alcohol poisoning can result in death from respiratory failure.
  6. DON'T force your pet into a costume for July 4th. Unless your dog (or even less likely, your cat) loves to play dress-up, don't push the issue. Make sure anything you dress your pet in is comfortably loose and doesn't constrict movement in any way. Also remember, it's July and your pet can easily get overheated.
  7. DO keep citronella candles, oils, and insect coils out of reach of your pet. Ingestion can cause stomach irritation and potentially, central nervous system symptoms. Inhaling the oil can cause breathing difficulties and aspiration pneumonia in pets.
  8. DON'T take your dog or cat around backyard or neighborhood fireworks displays. And make sure to store personal fireworks where your pet can't get them. Pets have been known to swallow unexploded firecrackers, and it's also important to remember that an animal's fur coat is highly flammable.
  9. DO keep matches and lighter fluid out of reach. Some matches contain chlorate, which can damage blood cells, impair respiration, and cause kidney disease. Lighter fluid can irritate your pet's skin, and if ingested can cause GI upset and central nervous system depression. Inhaling lighter fluid can result in breathing difficulties and aspiration pneumonia.
  10. DON'T allow your pet outside, especially after dark. If she'll be within range of the sights and sounds of fireworks, try to secure her in a room without windows. Create a safe haven with bedding, a toy or two, and a few treats. Turn on a TV, radio or other music to help muffle the noise from outside. Leave someone at home with your pet if possible, but whatever you do, don't leave her outside alone. If she becomes frightened, even a fenced yard may not keep her safe. Dogs have been injured while making panicked attempts to escape their yard, and those that succeed can run away, be hit by a car, or stolen by a stranger.


End of the Leash has several calming options for your kitty or pooch--here are just a few.  Stop in one of our locations and we can discuss which product is best for your pet!

Amanita--Death Caps--are they in your yard??

Excerpt from an article by Dr. Karen Becker:

Not too long ago, I happened upon a heartbreaking headline from an online news source. It read, "A warning to pet owners: Two dogs found dead after eating poisonous mushrooms from owner's yard."

Below the headline were pictures of the dogs, a gorgeous 3-year-old Saint Bernard named Drago, and Adoni, a handsome 8-year-old Lab mix. When the dogs' owner returned to her home in Wake County, North Carolina on a Sunday in March, she found them dead. Four other dogs in the home were stumbling around and vomiting.

A veterinarian found traces of Amatoxin, a poisonous substance found in certain mushrooms, in the dogs' blood. Apparently they had ingested Amanita mushrooms, also called Death Caps or Death Angels, which are the most lethal mushrooms in North America. When ingested, they cause liver failure. Currently, no antidote exists.

The dogs' owner didn't realize the mushrooms were growing in her yard, under mulch, and hopes telling her tragic story will help educate other pet parents.

 

Please read over the entire article to determine if any of these wild mushrooms are taking up residence in your yard.  They all pose a serious risk (even death) to your pet's health if ingested. The Amanita Phalloides and Inocybe seem to be the most attractive to dogs because of their fishy odor.

Safety First in Hot Weather


Mother Nature seems to have sidetracked Spring this year in the Midwest--it started quite late, and now we are already having hot Summer temps!  So this means putting our safety caps on and being careful not to overdo long walks and outdoor play, and being strategic when we do go out.

We've created a consolidated list for basic Summer safety tips, and provided a few links for even more details.

Enjoy the outdoors and stay safe, too!

Practice basic Summer safety:

  1. Never leave your pets in a parked car
  2. Watch the humidity
  3. Limit exercise on hot days
  4. How hot is the road? HOT ASPHALT AWARENESS!
  5. Don't rely on a fan
  6. Provide ample shade and water
  7. Cool your pet inside and out (with frozen treats)
  8. Watch for signs of heat stroke
  9. Be properly prepared for power outages (so everyone stays cool!)
