Swimming Safety

Dog Swimming Safety guidelines checklistGoldens love to swim! This is an overview of safe swimming guidelines to give your dog the most enjoyable swimming experience. Swimming is good exercise, when approached with safety first, will provide opportunities for socialization, training, and playtime combined. This article is not comprehensive. Use this list to begin your preparation for a safe swimming adventure with your dog.

  1. Water Quality
    • Choose where you swim with care. Check for notices of water quality (each time you go in case of incident). In general: If the water is safe for people it is safe for your pet.
  2. Obstacles
    • Evaluate any potential safety issues regarding obstacles in and around the water. Is the water moving (creeks for example) and are there under currents?
    • Check for debris (litter, glass, sharp objects), plants (poisonous or sticker), sharp rocks, etc.
  3. People and Their Pets
    • Is the swimming area populated with other people and pets? If so, be cautious and use a leash upon arrival to social your dog with the other people and their pets before removing the leash for free play.
  4. Leash Rules
    • It is highly recommended to only choose swimming areas for your dog where it is allowed to remove the leash. NOTE: DROWNING CAUTION It is unsafe to leave a leash on your dog while he/she is swimming because it could become tangled in something underwater and drag him under.
  5. Agility and Endurance
    • Plan your swimming time according to your dog’s age, agility, and endurance level. It is ok for your dog to use up energy but, it isn’t healthy to continue swimming to the point of exhaustion. You are the best advocate of your dog’s health.
    • If you dog hasn’t been swimming before (or in awhile) build the amount of time swimming gradually. Think about how you might approach returning to the gym after a break. Each time you go you can stay a little longer.
  6. Obedience Level
    • This is the most important safety topic in every area of your dog’s life. The level of obedience your dog has developed can be the fundamental element to determining how enjoyable any activity is.

IMPORTANT: DROWNING CAUTION Teach your puppy/dog how to get out of the pool. This is an overlooked safety issue which has had devastating consequences.

Swimming Safety Socialization Before You Go

There are several ways you can practice your swimming outing at home before you go. Using the above list you can create mini-versions of the kind of communication skills you will need to master and prepare your dog for a healthy and safe swimming experience.

Back to School Plan for Stay At Home Dogs

It is Back to School time! For your dog this means sudden routine changes, a reduction in opportunities for playtime with people, and being at home alone more often than during the Summer Holiday.It is Back to School time! For your dog this means sudden routine changes, a reduction in opportunities for playtime with people, and being at home alone more often than during the Summer Holiday. Be sure to include your pet in planning your new busy schedule, keeping ‘routine’ in mind, so he/she can become familiar with the new flow of the home as smoothly as possible.

The summer break allowed for a variety of impromptu playtime activities, outings, and most importantly additional attention. During the summer break (as well as shorter holiday breaks) you dog will have enjoyed having more stimulation and may not remember how different the routine has been during the school year. Throughout the summer break the family dog has been more ‘’part’’ of the daily routine than during the school year.

Back to School Plan For Stay At Home Dogs

If your schedule will take most family members away from home for most of the day there are a few ideas to improve your dog’s adjustment to the change. If you can incorporate two or three ideas on a regular basis (so your dog knows what to expect) you can reduce the stress of change and uncertainty that may arise from sudden changes in household routine.

  • Arrange for someone (family or friends) to drop in and take the dog outside for 15 minutes in the middle of the day.
  • If you have a landline, and voice message unit, you can call home and talk to your dog. The sound of your voice may calm her/him. NOTE: Practice this while someone is home to observe your dog’s reaction.
  • Leave a few of your dog’s favorite toys available.
  • Put your dog on your calendar. Does she/he have appointments or service assignments?
  • Consider the possibility of taking your dog with you to work (for a day).
  • Include your dog when planning weekend, evening, and holiday activities.

Explore your dog’s routine and strive to make as few changes as possible. Remember to include as many ”people” oriented activities as possible.

Latchkey Dog Day Care and Boarding

Latchkey Dog Day Care and BoardingTop Questions to Ask About Safe Dog Boarding Services

There may be times when the family isn’t able to take the family pet with them during a holiday or when the day’s activities keep family members away at unusually long intervals. When your pet needs daycare or overnight boarding services be sure to ask these important questions to ensure the service is qualified and prepared to provide safe and healthy care for your dog.

First determine the level of care you will need.

  1. In Home Pet Sitter,
  2. Daycare (outside of your home), or
  3. Overnight Boarding.

Develop a Care Plan to outline your dog’s needs, health, schedule, preferences, feeding time, play and exercise time. Depending on the time of day, extent of your absence, and the provider you choose, some of your pet’s familiar experiences may need to be adapted. The longer the planning period and time spent in providing these adjustments (at home with family) the easier it will be for your pet to enjoy time spent away from familiar people.

Latchkey Dog Day Care and Boarding Question Checklist

Qualifications:

  • What Licenses does the facility possess?
  • What agency or organization monitors licensing?
  • What Training Classes are required for staff that provides direct care?

Practices:

  • What is the method of communication and discipline model used in the facility?
  • Who is qualified ‘on-site’ to provide First Aid and Emergency Planning?

Schedule:

When planning ahead is an option knowing (and implementing) the holiday schedule with your dog before you take them to a provider will socialize him/her to a large part of adapting to new surroundings.

  • Are all guests (pets) on the same schedule?
  • Meals times.
  • Play time.
  • Sleep time.
  • Exercise time.

Are other activities offered? Having an opportunity to introduce your dog to elements of a new activity can also set his/her mind at ease. Familiarity is a large part of socialization training.

Contact Information:

  • How can pet owners contact the facility during and after business hours?
  • Who will be contacted in case of emergency?

Staff Duties: Each staff may have different qualifications and duties.

  • What duties are assigned to each staff member who will be connecting with your pet?
  • What additional qualifications do each of these staff members possess?

Reviews:

  • What are other pet owners saying about their experience with the service?
  • Do they offer open communication with social media to ensure clients have access to share publicly when they are either satisfied or disappointed with the service?

Our pets are members of our family and we find it just as important to seek amazing services for them as we would for any other ‘people’ family member. Finding qualified care is essential to ensure your dog is happy, healthy, and comfortable with their accommodations. We wouldn’t stay in a hotel with questionable standards. We wouldn’t want our pets to be uncomfortable while we are away.

Remember These Top Tips

  1. Shop around,
  2. plan ahead,
  3. provide your pet with socialization opportunities, and
  4. ask questions.

Everyone have a happy holiday!

When to Call the Veterinarian in Addition to Regular Checkups

When to call the Veterinarian ChecklistWhen to Call the Veterinarian in Addition to Regular Checkups

Our dogs have regular Veterinary appointments throughout their life and the schedule varies depending on age and the Vet’s recommendation. In addition to these routine check-ups and procedures (vaccinations for example) we are observant of each of our dogs to identify signs we need to make additional checkup appointments. This article will explore some of the signs and symptoms however it is important to ask your pet’s veterinarian to review this list and recommend any additional guidance as needed.

When to Call the Veterinarian Checklist

  1. Changes in weight (gain or loss): When you notice a weight change, which is not ordinary for the dog’s age , these may be signs of a potential problem.
  2. Changes in appetite. It is important to limit any changes in a dog’s meal plan, however at some times, such as changing to Life’s Abundance or changing life cycle food for example, changes are important, yet they should be made gradually to not upset the dog’s digestive system. When no change has been made in diet but the dog’s appetite changes (eating less or showing signs of being hungrier than usual) a call to the Vet may help clarify the reason for the change.
  3. Increased Thirst or Urination
  4. Increase or decrease in energy levels.
    1. It is common to have a relative shift in energy level at the beginning or end of daily routines, but, if your dog appears sluggish during a time when he/she is regularly active or seems hyperactive when she is commonly relaxing with the family for movie night, this could be a sign the veterinarian can be helpful exploring with you.
  5. Increase in Hair Loss. Remember our dogs will shed when it gets warmer, but, this is usually not to the extent of depleting the coat. Natural shedding is expected. However if hair loss appears increased a call a visit to the vet can help identify the cause.
  6. Vomiting and/or diarrhea are potentially serious signs justifying an immediate call to the Veterinarian. In many cases the cause may be simply nervousness or colic, however, if the symptoms are associated with an illness the sooner you have a diagnosis the best overall recovery is possible.
  7. Changes in behavior or temperament. Discomfort from symptoms can cause change in temperament and/or behavior. When our pets aren’t feeling well (which is true for Pet Parents as well) they aren’t as happy to see their people, may not seem as interested in play as usual, or have a generally avoiding attitude about an established otherwise enjoyable daily routine. If there aren’t apparent reasons your dog is ‘just having a bad day because______’ (fill in the blank) you can (and should) expect the signs to pass quickly. If they don’t contact the vet to ask for guidance.
  8. Changes in Sleep Routine. The ‘normal’ sleep routine of a dog will vary with breed, activity level, and age. When a ‘normal’ is established for your dog watch for changes (which are predictable due to lifestyle or lifecycle changes). When a pet sleeps less (or more) than normal this could indicate a sign to call the vet in-between regular checkups.

As Pet Parents We are Advocates:
Being observant of our dogs on a daily basis is an important part of being a Pet Parent. We make eye contact, communicate, establish a regular routine (feeding, exercise, grooming, training, and playtime), keep notes when things seem ‘a little off’ so we can clearly communicate our observations to the Veterinarian if those ‘a little off’ things become signs to Call the Veterinarian in Addition to Regular Checkups.

Routine Combing for Dogs and Healthy Coats

Nike has the demeanor of an “old soul.”  She is kind, loving, gentle, patient, and loving, accented beautifully with the fun spark of a youth.  She has a beautiful, incredible light coat.  Nike is a true beauty inside and out.  Click on picture to read more!Routine Combing for Dogs and Healthy Coats

We have explored the benefits of providing regular coat grooming and the importance of understanding how to care for your dog’s coat during shedding season (click here to review previous article). A holistic view of grooming (diet, exercise, not over bathing, and routine brushing/combing) is essential to ensure a healthy coat. Today’s article will expand on the topic with suggestions for providing a twice a week routine to brush and/or comb your dog’s coat.

Routine Combing for Dogs — Tools Suggested

Tangle Remover Solution (reduces static, assists in removing tangled and matted fur, and conditions the coat).

  • Life’s Abundance Bath Fresh Mist (for wet or dry hair) this formula is enhanced with a moisture-activated odor fighter that safely absorbs and neutralizes unpleasant odors

Soft Bristle Brush (to separate any top coat tangles and remove surface debris)

  • Always brush in the direction of the fur without applying force. When matted use the round tooth comb.

Scratch Free Round Tooth Comb (assists in removing a heavy shedding under coat)

  • Scratch free designed combs are less irritating to the skin and allow a deeper shed removal without discomfort.

Routine Combing for Dogs — Suggested Technique

  • Cleaning Coat—avoid over bathing because over bathing can often dry out a dog’s skin inhibiting natural oils needed to assist in healthy coat support.
  • Combing Coat – comb with a scratch free round tooth metal comb when desired to remove a shedding undercoat.
  • Brushing Coat – brushing at least twice a week will assist in removing debris and tangles from the coat. Brushing also assists in distributing a dog’s natural body oils which (in combination with healthy diet, exercise, proper hydration, and grooming) provides optimal conditions for a beautiful healthy coat.

Frequency Recommendations

"Muddy Aria" and our Trained Puppy Cooper (Honor/Ego 4-25-2014)

The frequency you will decide to establish for your dog’s routine combing will depend on the weather and your dog’s activity throughout the week. As shown in the photo:

  • A dog that enjoys rolling in mud or thickets will naturally require a more frequent grooming routine.

A Note about Mud:

  • We want to avoid over bathing so when mud is involved it is often efficient to wait for the mud to dry and then use the soft bristle brush to remove surface debris from the dog’s coat.
  • Next use the comb to gently remove any mud in the undercoat (if needed).
  • If desired continue with a light mist and gentle massage with the Bath Fresh Mist.
  • On the other hand a dog that enjoys walking (rather than rolling) and chooses groomed landscapes to play will generally need brushing twice a week and a deeper combing once a week during shedding season.

Let us know any questions you have about raising your puppy.  We are happy to help guide you.

We Absolutely Adore Him! Testimonial Black Boy Johnny Sunny Ego litter born 4-08-2014I just wanted to take the time and send you an email to let you know about Johnny.  We absolutely ADORE him.  This is the 4th golden that we have had and I have to tell you that he is by far the happiest, sweetest, most loving dog we have ever had.  My daughter said that our last golden (the one we just lost to cancer last year) was such a lover and we never thought we could find that personality again.  We did! Johnny is always wagging his tail and smiling! He is playful, lovable and still thinks he is a lap dog!!!

I just wanted you to know how much we love him and how happy we are with Wisteria and Johnny.  I just saw that his parents, Sunny and Ego had another litter.  Im keeping an eye on them because although we are not ready for a 3rd golden, we will absolutely buy another puppy from you down the road!
 
Thank you for blessing us with such a happy, loving dog.  Just wanted you to know.

Natural Flea and Tick Prevention

Natural Flea and Tick Prevention Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil RECIPE for mist and cotton bandanna collarWe hosted a class in the spring on the topic of ‘Essential Oils for Pets’ and we discovered several amazing ways we can use Pure Essential Oils for our dogs. One of the most popular topics, during and since the class, was how to use certified therapeutic grade essential oils in the prevention of fleas and ticks.

Natural Flea and Tick Prevention

We have long realized a healthy diet will support the goal by improving our dog’s immune system. This is priority when considering the damage a flea, tick, or mosquito can cause us or our pets. This is our checklist for promoting optimal health.

  1. Healthy Diet
  2. Flea and Tick Repellent Mist
  3. Flea, Tick, and Mosquito drops on a cotton bandanna collar.

ONE: Healthy Diet

We feed our pets and provide supplements from Life’s Abundance line of products. Read more about why we stand behind this product and why you should as well. Read our article “Life’s Abundance…Because, Nutrition Matters! and They Depend on You!”

TWO: Flea and Tick Repellent Mist

One way to use a natural mist repellent is to apply before going outside and after returning from training or playing outdoors (during flea/tick & mosquito season).

Recipe:

  • 5 drops Lavender Pure Essential Oil &
  • 5 drops Eucalyptus Pure Essential Oil,
  • 12 oz glass mist bottle with 10 ounces distilled water.

Shake well before each use. Mist on your dog’s back of neck and back coat. Cover his eyes when misting to avoid contact with eyes. The combination of Lavender and Eucalyptus repels pests and ‘deters tick eggs from hatching’* (*based on an Ohio State University study). Additionally, Lavender and Eucalyptus oils have skin and coat conditioning properties to support healthy skin and coat.

BE CAUTIOUS: If your dog is old enough, and ONLY IF YOU ARE using a Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil, the mist is safe, effective, and can also be used on people. So we are also protected and will not carry pests inside after going outside with our dogs.

In the case of puppies and essential oils. If you have a puppy, and would like to have a specific EO combination, and dilution recommendation, please comment below with your question, your puppy’s age, weight, and breed. OR, address your question to our Pet Wellness Advocate.

THREE: Cotton Bandanna Collar Method

Another way to use natural flea and tick prevention repellent is by using the oils on the ‘’outside away from the skin’’ area of a cotton bandanna collar.

  1. Start with a well made cotton bandanna, the right size for your dog (not too tight or too loose).
  2. Put 3 drops each of Lavender and Eucalyptus oil on the bandanna ‘away from the skin’ to prevent potential sensitive skin reaction from direct contact.
  3. Reapply as needed* when the scent fades.

NOTE: *How long the cotton bandanna collar treatment will last depends on several factors; Climate, Temperature, Humidity, Activity level of your pet, and Moisture (if he/she goes swimming, or decides to play in a puddle for example). Check the scent intensity once a day until you determine how long the treatment will last in your climate, humidity, and activity level of your dog.
