Beware of The Swoop!

Sunday, March 20, 2016

HAWKSYesterday, I opened the door and saw two large hawks, circling very low above our house. My cats were safe and warm indoors. If you have a small dog, don’t leave him alone in the yard on warm spring days. Danger lurks overhead! Instead, get some dog toys, a dog leash and take him to the park where he can play and you can keep a close eye on him. I know I’ve written about this before but this is a real issue. Small animals have been gone in an instance when a hawk makes his final swoop! ┬áDon’t take the chance. I sometimes let my cats on the porch or deck on warm summer days but they are never left out alone. If I see a hawk, they are taken inside to safety immediately. Don’t take chances, use your common sense.

Puppy Accidents

guiltpupSome puppies get so excited at playtime or when people come through the door that they urinate on the floor. There’s no time get his dog leash on and take him out! So keep a supply of pet stain removal products on hand. Even well trained dogs can exhibit this behavior. As your puppy grows and gains more confidence, the problem with overactive urination usually goes away. Unless you accidentally reinforce the behavior. If your dog has accidents when you walk through the door and your veterinarian has ruled out any medical causes for this problem, do not scold your pup for his behavior but don’t reward him with dog treats for it either. If you console your dog after he pees on the floor, you are sending a message that his action is acceptable. Instead be “low key” about it and ignore your dog’s excitement and wait until he’s calm to pet him
