Is Dog for Life Or Christmas

Is Dog for Life Or Christmas
My family run an animal sanctuary in Birmingham, England.
Even though we love what we do, we feel that some people need to realise that a pet should be a long term commitment.
They should not be seen as just a bit of fun which they can then get rid of when they get bored.
Many people arrive at the animal sanctuary with their pets, which are mainly dogs, with many excuses as to why they are no longer able to look after or care for them.
I am sure many of their reasons are valid but am also aware that many others are just an excuse to offload them.
The excuses they give are varied:
I have recently divorced from my husband and can no longer afford to keep this dog as a pet
The dog has started to bite my children
The dog is too difficult to handle and is destroying my furniture
We have recently moved into a flat. 
One of their rules is that no animals can live in these flats
The dog barks to much and it is upsetting the neighbours
Our other animals do not like the dog
The dog is affecting my health
I am too ill to look after my dog
It is not our role to question these reasons but what we then need to do is to find another suitable home for the dogs.
 One such dog is called Cassie. 
She is full of life and has been ill treated it seems when she was a puppy.
Half of her left ear is missing and she is seemingly quite afraid of men.
Cassie is need of a huge amount of care and attention.
 She can be too lively at times which is possibly why three people who attempted to re-home her, have bought her back.
This is easier said than done as we need to ensure that the new owners will be able to care for them, for hopefully the duration of their life.
We also keep many of the dogs as our own pets, especially the ones which nobody else seems to want.
She is not aggressive in any way but does tend to jump up at people.
What we did with Cassie and what we will continue to do, is to give her lots of love but also a little bit of training of what is good and what is not acceptable.
It takes a long time, but she is now able to understand that the jumping is not wanted and that she needs to chill out at times.
Cassie is turning into a wonderful dog to have around the house and now feels for the first time as part of a family.
With a little more patience most other dogs can turn out this way.
This is why we want more people to take more responsibility and to give their animals more of a chance to settle into their homes, and to get used to a new set of rules.
Having animals as pets can be very rewarding, nearly as rewarding as having a child. A dog however will rarely answer you back.
If you are having problems with your animals you can always phone up animal sanctuaries for advice and to hear about possible solutions.
The people who work there are animal lovers and will help you as much as they can.
If you are unable to continue looking after the pet, the sanctuary should be able to take them off you.

what are the Secrets To Healing Your Pet

 what are the Secrets To Healing Your Pet
Most people do not know how to treat their pets when their pets needs them most.
Surprisingly, alot of people do not even have the education or knowledge on how to care for their pets.
The pet's life might be endangered if the owner do not has the knowledge.
For example: If pets suffers from the aches and pains of old age and arthritis or it swallows household poison like chocolate, do the owners know how to deal with it?
Most of the time the answer is "NO" as they are cluless on what to do next.
So the next best action that a owner can do is to educate themselves better on how to care for their pets.
If you have the knowledge, you will be able to
Instantly decide on a course of action for your ailing pet
 so you can ease pain and start treatment immediately.
- Easily afford natural and effective remedies regardless of your financial situation  so your pet doesn't have to go without treatment.
- Quickly diagnose your sick or injured pet - so you can instantly know if you can administer care yourself or if you should seed medical help immediately.
 Immediately begin regimens that have been proven to halt and or prevent diseases such as cancer and diabetes - so your pet can live a long and healthy life with you.
If the owner has very little knowledge and they are too dependent on vet as vet is the owner's only option , the pet will suffer because sometimes per owners 
Delay bringing their pet in for treatment because the pet becomes ill after hours Rely exclusively on harsh drug treatments because they (and their vets) are unaware of effective, gentle, natural ways to treat their pet.
 Discontinue treatment for chronic illnesses because it's complicated or expensive Aren't able to afford an office visit and or follow up treatment.
Most pet owners have no idea how to perform CPR, or even begin to give basic medical care to their pet. But you should know these things, because in some emergencies, you can't always get to the Vet in time.
And that is why it is so important for everybody who loves and cares for a pets to have the appropriate information.
It might even saves your pet's life one day.
So the questions now is where to get the education and correct information
You would have to pay hundreds of dollars to assemble enough books to cover all aspects of treatment in this one eBook.
Books focusing on dogs, on cats, on behavior problems, chronic illness, and even trauma.
Then, you'd have to find books on herbal remedies - presuming you already know which are safe for dogs and which for cats and which could cause complications (including death).
Add to your cart books on dental health, acupressure, and homeopathy.
So it is very expensive and time consuming. So how?
And what can I do?
I really love my pet and I want to learn stuffs that can help my pet.
He has practiced Veterinary Medicine for over a decade.

A good Dog & Better Neighbors

A good Dog & Better Neighbors
Believe it or not, not everyone likes your family pet. 
By keeping your pet in an identified space with a good quality dog fence, Fido can remain as a good neighbor.
 I know, I know, it's  almost impossible to imagine that anyone who knows Fido doesn't immediately fall in love with her. 
She might just be ok with the neighbors but the things she does in their yard make for some unhappy relationships.  
This is just one of the main reasons why every pet owner has an obligation to control their pets traveling range with pet fencing. 
The problem of course is the about relieving themselves in someone else's yard,  Yes, your pet may be friendly and would like to visit the neighbors but the fact is, many people do not share your love affair with your pet.
 They don't want the bother of picking up after an animal that's not theirs nor having their yards soiled with urine "hot spots" and doggie piles.
 Dogs, although usually very friendly also can be destructive of plants and landscaping, making many breeds poor neighbors.
That's not to say that your dog isn't a nice animal.
 Dogs are typically social and enjoys the interaction with a variety of people. 
This play interaction however is not without consequences. 
Things get broken, chewed on and otherwise "enjoyed" by your pet no matter if they belong to you or the neighbor. 
Having to face an angry neighbor because your dog destroyed his prize winning rose bush garden isn't something to be desired. 
There's also the issue of community security. 
This is especially true if your dog is a larger breed.
 Having a large dog escape the security of their yard could be seen as negligence on your part.
 Communities are becoming increasingly upset at pet owners who allow their animals free run of a neighborhood. 
Heaven forbid if your dog, while free, attacks someone or another animal.
 This is especially serious if the other dog or pet was on a leash.
The saying is that a good fence makes for good neighbors. 
A good dog fence also makes for a happy and healthy environment for your pet.
 By securing your dog using secure fencing, your best friend also has the security of knowing where his yard boundaries are located. 
There is no need to "guard" anything beyond the fence lines so you pet is more inclined to stay in his yard to better "watch" his property.
 Overall, electronic dog fencing is a good investment no matter what type of dog you may have as a pet.

Free Great Dog Training Lessons

Free Great  Dog Training Lessons
There are three types of people who enroll in courses of training dogs. 
 They are honest and want to be responsible dog owners!
The first is for beginners. They are the ones who have not had any experience as the owner of a dog or an adult with any type of dog training.
Admit they are ignorant and in need of help. Many say timidly: "Help me, before the dog or puppy ruin my!"
They are experienced dog owners and the second, and able to understand and appreciate the additional benefits to enroll in a puppy or a class in the training group. Have attended training courses before.  
And 'the value of learning new techniques for training. Some admit that they need discipline and there is no homework, and the program to follow.  
As some of the competition to see how tireless efforts, their dog a week to week, and others in the classroom. Then there are those who understand that they must be able to communicate effectively with their pet dogs for all types of aberrations.
Three p.m. who has tried to do-it-yourself methods. However, it does not work, and now they have behavior problems on their hands.
Let's start with the beginners.
We often hear of dog trainers: "We have always had dogs when I was a kid, but I never had to do was play with them." These neophytes like to learn! 
 They are proactive! They want to do it right the first time. I am grateful for any tidbits of information about what to expect and how to deal with it.
It 's funny to see how excited you get, every little step of progress.  
Also find out the value of the training group, because not only because he knows how to communicate effectively with the dog, the dog is gaining important social skills. 
 Dogs trained to respect this initiative. It will take time to work closely with beginners, because they want the relationship between the owner / dog to be a positive experience for both.
Then we have the dog owner with experience.
 They are veterans, and an example of responsible dog ownership. This was expressed most of the course of at least one group of dog training with the dog himself, or had them in the past. 
 Know how to change the methods of training. 
 Recognize the different coaches and training methods.  
They admit they may need assistance and hands-on attention and one-to-one, so as not to make mistakes. They understand that it is better and easier to teach their pet how to follow correctly the first time, instead of having to modify the behavior is inappropriate.
And they understand how the case for the inevitability of puppies and dogs to be socialized early and often.
Finally, we have a do-it-yourself.
Yes, I bought all the books and videos. 
 Actually trying, but something went wrong or missing. There was no one there to help on the bumps. 
 There was no one there to help them understand where they went wrong, or because the dog is doing what he does. Follow the books. He has seen dozens of times a DVD, but the dog just does not cooperate!
The problem usually know, have created this bad habit, or inappropriate behavior. Now, this should be a retreat through the modification of behavior, before they are taught their dog is exactly what is expected of them.
Recognize the truth; dog follows your example. 
 The dog can not read the books do not fully understand the DVD, regardless of the number of times to play them.  
Just as there are different ways to teach people, and there are different ways of training dogs.
 And the dog can be trained to know and read your dog. Then it can help you find the best way to communicate with them. What works for Fido does not always work for Max
Dog "home school" your, as it lacks one of the most valuable tools of learning, training dogs ... Socializing. All puppies and dogs need socialization with people and dogs and new experiences. They need a lot of it! They need to learn from each other and their owners learn from each other too!
Trainers that we see in many cases, a look at the dog, and "copy" the last, and when learning something new. It works!
Bottom line: Some will read this article and do not gain anything from it. Others argue that there may be truth in what has been said.
The end result of the training speak for itself through the dog's behavior.
If nothing else, to help a dog or puppy socialization skills is desirable, given the inclusion in positive reinforcement, punishment without a puppy kindergarten or basic obedience course, and enrollment is limited. In smaller classes, you will get the attention and service you deserve.
You are going to love the results!
