Watch Out for Foxes

foxdogIn our neighborhood, every now and then you’ll see a fox. Since there are many pets in our community, we must be aware of some of the dangers that foxes can cause. The one major problem that foxes present is the danger of disease. They may carry rabies and one bite can cause an infection. Foxes also defecate where people live and the bacteria can spread to humans and as well as pets if your dog or cat gets too close. It’s always a good idea to keep your dog on his dog leash whenever possible. I always recommend keeping cats indoors. It’s safer for you and them.  Check your garden and clean any feces that you may notice. Dogs go everywhere so don’t take any chances. One important fact that your should remember is that you may not be infected in diseases that foxes carry but your pet will be. Mange, for example can affect dogs but the disease is easily treated and will not kill the dog once the treatment with pet medication begins. The worst case scenario is hair loss by your pet if it’s not treated.

Always be on the safe side. Keep your dog contained or when walking him, keep him on his dog leash so he doesn’t wonder too far.

Go Beyond The Basics

dogstandingYour dog knows the basics. He’ll sit on command, hold his paw out when you say “shake,” and lie down when you tell him to. Now, you need him to get to the next level. Teaching a dog tricks could be a fun way to bond. So if you want to go beyond the basic commands with your dog, Try teaching him to stand on two legs or bow. Start by giving your dog a verbal cue then reward him with a dog treat when he actually performs the action. For example, dogs often bow when they want to play or when they wake up from a nap. Then, using the dog treat and a verbal command, guide the dog to perform the action again. Remember, keep practicing, be patient and use positive reinforcement. Before long you and your dog will be able to impress all of your friends! Now it’s time to teach him some tricks with a flying disc dog toy!
