Pet gates?

Posted By:  Aleman @ Jan 6 2017, 08:13 AM
We've already bought a safety gate as our baby cos our baby has been learning to walk, but I'm aware that there are specific gates out there for pets... and we ideally want to be keeping the dog, when we get one, out of the room where the baby sleeps. So, do you think this one's okay: http://www.prams.net/babydan-avantgarde-in...th-cherrywood-b or should we invest in a gate specifically for pets?

How You Can Help 13 Heroic Hounds Looking For Homes

Posted By:  Petguide.com @ Dec 16 2016, 03:07 PM

13 four-legged heroes have served their country proudly returned from war to a hero’s welcome, but they are looking to find their furever homes. Here’s how you can help make that dream come true.
Dogs have long been an integral part of many missions of war in lands abroad, and they are often credited with saving hundreds and thousands of lives with their unique canine abilities, particularly when it comes to sniffing out dangerous situations where bombs and/or explosives are involved.

One group of 13 such heroic dogs has ‘retired’ from duty, after service in Kuwait, and the dogs are now hoping to find the good life in families they can call their own forever. The dogs–Ace, Andy, Charlie, Eman, Google, Haneen, Heckey, Jodie, Keeley, Max, Molten, Trigger, and Uno–will be rehabilitated and reintegrated into ‘civilian life’ by the Mission K9 Rescue group, a group dedicated to serving our nation’s working dogs.

Partnering with the United States War Dogs Association (USWDA) and the Petco Foundation, Mission K9 will work to ensure that dogs will be reunited with handlers, if at all possible, and if not, will find loving homes that will give these dogs the life they so deserve after such service to our country.

The dogs are not technically U.S. Military dogs, but dogs who have been trained to work with handlers contracted by the U.S. Military, and as such, they basically have no guarantee of retiring when their services are no longer needed, or they are no longer able to provide service. Mission K9 attends to the rehabilitation and medical issues of these special dogs, and ensures they are fit and ready to be adopted by the perfect family. Many of the dogs may suffer from Post Traumatic Stress, as many human service-members do, so they will be given the opportunity to decompress from war, and to reintegrate into society.

The dogs are all given behavioral tests before being placed in the optimal environment, with the sole goal being the security and welfare of the dog in their retirement years. The dogs do not receive any official military benefits, and so Mission K9 Rescue can use our help to fund their medical expenses, rehabilitation and rehoming needs, as well as to bring dogs still left behind home.

An anonymous donor has volunteered to give a $40,000 grant if Mission K9 Rescue can raise $40,000 to support these dogs and bring more like them home, and if you’d like to give back to animals who bravely offered their lives in service of our freedom, you can go to Mission K9 Rescue’s site and donate. All donations are tax-deductible and are an easy way to say, “Thanks,” to man’s best friend.

Spot on or Collar: What’s the Right Flea & Tick Treatment for Your

Posted By:  Petguide.com @ May 27 2016, 02:20 PM

It’s that time of year again – the weather is warming up. That means parasites are waking up… and they’re hungry! Protect your pet with a spot on or collar treatment that perfectly fits their needs.

The 2016 flea and tick forecast has just been released… and it doesn’t look good. Experts from the Companion Animal Parasite Council predict that biting parasites are going to be out in full force this year. This is bad news for pets, who are at risk from contracting parasite-transmitted diseases such as Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, ehrlichiosis, and tapeworms from fleas and ticks.

Depending on where you live, parasites may pose a year-long concern or a seasonal problem. Even if your pet spends most of his time indoors, that won’t stop fleas and ticks from latching on when they get a chance. The most effective way to keep your pet protected is with an active ingredient treatment.
Two of the most commonly used active ingredient treatments used by pet parents are spot on and collars treatments. But what option is best for you and your pet? Let’s take a closer look at what each of these options offer.

What are Spot On Treatments?

Spot on treatments, such as PetLock Plus, contain insecticides that come in a small tube of liquid and are used to kill fleas, flea eggs, larvae, ticks, and chewing lice. The treatment is applied directly to your dog’s skin, usually between the shoulder blades.

The liquid contains Fipronil and (S)-methoprene that work to keep adult parasites off your dog, as well prevent larvae from developing. Once it’s absorbed, the liquid medication spreads over the surface of your dog’s skin through the sebaceous glands.

Benefits of PetLock Plus:

• Kills fleas, flea eggs, larvae, ticks, and chewing lice, which can transmit diseases and cause various allergic reactions.
• Easy to use treatment that’s applied once a month.
• Costs less then Frontline Plus, but offers the same protection for your pet.
• Available for dogs and puppies (8 weeks of age and older) weighing 6 to 132 pounds, and cats over 1.5 pounds (8 weeks of age and older).
• Long lasting and waterproof.

What is a Flea and Tick Collar?

A flea and tick collar is a protective band that’s worn around your dog’s neck, just like a collar. The PetLock Collar kills fleas and ticks for up to 6 months, as they contain the same active ingredient as Scalibor Protector Band. As well, the PetLock Collar offers patented Insecticide-Release Technology.

Benefits of PetLock Collar

• PetLock Collar provides season long control against fleas and ticks that can transmit harmful diseases to dogs.
• Kills larvae, nymph and adult ticks for up to 6 months and prevents future infestations from occurring.
• Weatherproof, waterproof, and long lasting.
• Available in both small and large sizes (for dogs and puppies 12 weeks of age and older, 6 to 132 pounds), the PetLock Collar can be easily adjusted to fit your dog’s neck.
• It offers same active ingredients as Scalibor Protector Band for Dogs, at a lower price.

Along with its overall effectiveness, many pet parents want a flea and tick treatment that’s easy to use and is cost efficient. With a collar, as long as your dog doesn’t mind wearing it, you don’t have to worry about fleas and ticks for six months. If your pet prefers the sans collar lifestyle, spot on treatments are the best way to go – an easy way to remember is to apply it on the first day of a new month.

And a lower price is just icing on the cake! Because PetLock Plus and PetLock Collar offer the same flea and tick protection as other brands, your pet enjoys all the benefits of a parasite-free treatment, and you enjoy a little more spending money (to spend on pet treats, of course!).

Stop nasty parasites from making a meal of your pet this year. Check out PetLock Plus and PetLock Collar, and get a drop on fleas and ticks before they set up camp on your dog or cat. You can purchase PetLock Plus and PetLock Collar online or in store at Petco.

Tucker Update

Posted By:  Shirley @ Dec 10 2015, 10:14 PM
It's been awhile since I've been here. Last time was when Tucker had just arrived. Well ... he is 9 months old tomorrow. It's been such a busy year - training him for obedience and showing him. He has had some successes in the show ring with more to come next year hopefully. And February or March he will start his obedience career.

Rafe is getting older and creaky. He turned 11 in October. I treasure every day with him. He is such a good teacher - I know Tucker will be a better dog for having Rafe to guide him.
