Preparing Your Pet For Overnight Guests

Tuesday, April 12, 2016

kidsdogsIf you have guests that are staying overnight, it’s always best to keep your pet on his normal schedule. Give him is dog food and dog treats at set times. If the guests are children, then you have to consider your pups temperament. Is he calm around children? Does he get excited or jumpy? If you think that your dog might not interact well with a child, you may want to keep her in another room. Even if your dog is calm around children, they should be instructed how to behave including  not to petting the dog too hard. The most important tip is to never, ever leave your dog alone with a child. You’re just asking for trouble. Even if your dog is even tempered, she may bite if she’s hurt or frightened.

It may be a good idea to toss around some dog toys before your guests arrive, so your pup gets her exercise and maybe even gets a little tired out.

Preparing your dog for visitors is part of the ongoing process of training. This doesn’t end with teaching your dog to sit or stay. Learn how to teach your dog and it should be an ongoing process.

Puppy Mills – Animal Abuse At It’s Worst

puppymillsThis is a disturbing story coming out of Wicomico, County, Maryland and was reported on our local TV station WBOC TV 16 last night .

Wicomico County Animal Control said in a press release Monday that on Wednesday, April 6, animal control officers, with the assistance of the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office, conducted a kennel check on a county resident.
According to Lt. Tim Robinson of the sheriff’s office, 200 of the 300 dogs were inside a barn on the property, located on the 5000 block of Cooper Road in the Eden area. Robinson said it took animal control and the sheriff’s office 14 hours to remove the dogs.
Most of the dogs removed from the property were Pomeranians, according to Aaron Balsamo, executive director of the Humane Society of Wicomico County. Balsamo said the majority of the dogs are not in good condition. He also said the vast number of dogs suddenly coming under the Humane Society’s care has prompted the organization to seek donations from the public including dog food, old newspapers and liners for dog cages, as well as cleaning supplies.
No charges have been filed yet, according to Robinson.

If you would like to make a donation, contact, Humane Society of Wicomico County, Md.

Lets do our best to keep our pets safe. If you suspect animal abuse, please contact the authorities immediately!
