Dog Walking Service
There are many
benefits to why people need to hire a Professional Dog Walker. Some owners do
not have the time in their busy schedule or don’t have a yard because they live
in an apartment. Some are physically unable to take their dog(s) for a walk.
There are certain dog breeds that require more exercise than others.A dog needs a job to do. If they just lay
around the yard or the home, they will develop bad habits, like excessive
barking, chewing and tearing up things in the house, digging in the yard or
even worse digging under the fence. Having
a Professional Dog Walker provides the opportunity to release some of the pent
up aggression and energy that builds up throughout the day while positively
reinforcing routines, practicing proper leash etiquette (not pulling on the
leash etc…) and working on some basic walk training such as “sit” before
crossing the street, heel, come and street etiquette (not barking at other
people, dogs etc.) We here at Happy Pets need to stress that
your dog needs exercise. Walking, or even fetch in the backyard and they need
it daily to prevent bad habits. I keep reading about why dogs are given up at
the shelters.The dog barks too much,
the dog won’t quit digging in the newly landscaped yard or tearing up the
house. These reasons are caused because the dog is not getting enough exercise.
The changes we have seen in a dog once they are exercised and have playtime and
also some training is like seeing a whole new dog.The difference can be tremendous.
Whatever the reason that an owner has for not taking their
dog on a daily walk, we as Professional Dog Trainer’s/Dog Walker’s and Pet
Sitter’s are here to offer that service for you, the owner and the dog.
Yes, I said Rats. They make awesome pets and are clean.Most Rats do not bite, compared to a hamster
or gerbil, in the past I have had pet rats and mostly just one rat at a time. I
used to keep the rat in a 10 Gal aquarium which I find out is wrong. The rat
would just lie in the Aquarium all day and looked depressed. Times have changed
for the better for the rat. I started reading and doing research. Rats are
sociable. Always have at least two Rats together, same sex of course or you
will have many more unless they are neutered. Rats like to run and play with
each other and their toys. Homemade toys are the best and are cheap.
Housing:First let me
talk about housing for the Rats. Please don’t keep them in an aquarium. The air
does not circulate in them to well and the ammonia builds up quickly from their
urine and will cause the rats to have upper respiratory infections. Rats are
clean; they clean themselves daily like a cat. They also can be litter box trained.
Homemade cages can be b…
Fall has arrived with the arrival from the storm from the Hurricane that came up as a tropical storm from Baja Mexico. The cold windy, rain weather is sticking around. Looks like we are even in for more rain. This cooler weather is fully welcome after the unusually hot summer we had in the area.
To help your pets adjust and to be protected from the change of weather I thought listing tips to help out pets adjust to the cooler temperatures may help.
1. Winter Check up: a Veterinarian wellness exam for our older pets to make sure they are healthy and ready for another winter. Arthritis and age plays a key part in keeping our pets healthy.
2. Know their Limits: Just like people it depends on their age, health condition. When the temperature drops below 45 degrees Fahrenheit our pets feel the cold like we do. It does not mater if it a Dog, Cat or horse, if they are up in age and arthritic they need assistance to keep warm and pain free.
