Advice from The Other End of the Leash


The Other End of the Leash, website of Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist Patricia McConnell, Ph.D., is one of our favorite places to learn about the relationship between people and animals.  

Now that the weather is nicer, many people are taking advantage of the longer days to enjoy our area's dog parks.  Patricia's article, "When to Intervene in Dog-Dog Interactions" is a must-read, especially for frequenters to the dog park!

HAWS needs your help after this huge intake of chinchillas! (See the article: More than 300 chinchillas found in Waukesha home.) 

HAWS officials are asking the community for donations of timothy hay, chinchilla food, chinchilla dust and crock-style food dishes that are 4 to 5 inches in diameter.

Donations for the animals' care can be made at www.hawspets.org or by calling 262-542-8851.  Click here to see HAWS' official media release from March 30th.

Lakeland Adoptables at Mukwonago EOTL

Stop by the Mukwonago EOTL this weekend to meet adoptables from Lakeland Animal Shelter!

  • Friday, April 3rd from 2pm-5pm
  • Saturday, April 4th from 11am-2pm

Did you know that Lakeland Animal Shelter cares for over 2,500 animals every year in the SE Wisconsin area?  At any given time, they house 40-60 dogs and 150-400 cats, and do not limit their intake based on the ages, temperament or health of the animals.  There is also no time limit for each animal's stay.  Each individual is treated with respect and compassion, and is given the treatments and training he/she needs to reach their full potential for adoption.  Read more about Lakeland's Mission and Philosophy.

Izzy is 3.5 years old and a Domestic medium hair. She is a shy gal but when she feels comfortable she will seek your attention! She would do best being the one and only pet in your life. 

Pookie is a 9-year-old Pomeranian. He is an independent guy, but he is very sweet and will seek attention when he is ready. He gets along with cats and dogs and since he is more mature, he would get along with children 6 years or older.
