Kids always want help out on walks with our dogs but they’re a few things that should be established before doing so. Speaking to your children about responsibilities and positive pet ownership is the first thing you’d should do.

.

.

Suggestions for a positive walk with your dog and children. An adult should always accompany children, avoiding busy streets, with parks or an open area like parking lots being ideal. In training your dog to walk with a child correctly it is best to begin with a two (2) leash approach on the dog, one leash for the handler and one for the child, giving them a feeling of being in control.

.

.

Avoid retractable leashes for they can be difficult for a child to walk a dog with and difficult to use as serious injuries can occur if fingers were to become entwined. On walks it’s best to teach the child to avoid other dogs. Your dog might be gentle and social but you don’t know how the other persons dog is. This can help avoid possible dangerous situation.

.

.

Initially keep walks short and sweet, as the child and dog becomes more comfortable with each other, the length and time of a walk can increase. It’s important to teach children to watch their dogs breathing from walks. Dogs can get tired and over exert themselves to make their owners happy but this can lead to deadly consequences depending on the breed. Therefore teaching to notice the signs can make a difference.

.

.

Keys signs are: heavy breathing, purple/blue gums, lethargy, eyes rolling behind their head, feeling that you have to drag the dog. It’s imperative to note not to give a dog water or food after a long walk as this can contribute to bloat (gastric dilatation volvulus) Bloat happens when a dogs stomach fills with gas, with food or fluid mixing to expand.

.

.

In most cases the dogs stomach will rotate or twis. Let the dog cool down at least 15 mins before allowing them to drink. Lastly, teach children to pay attention to the road laws. Where to cross, respecting stop signs, obeying lights, etc.

Education and manners is the human equivalence to training and socialization for a dog. Like a person, a dog would benefit greatly when their training and socializing begins at an early age.

.

.

Any trainer would begin imprinting their puppy the minute they bring them home, so why do people wait for their puppy to get older to train? The first year of a dogs life is the equivalent of a human reaching 15 years of age. The basics that every dog should know by the first year is to be socialized so they can be around other dogs, kids and different environments and at least know the basic five words: SIT, STAY, COME, DOWN, HEEL

.

.

A disproportionate number of dogs being turned into shelters are dogs that fall into the category of having too little or no training, nor any proper socialization and this my friends is 100% the owners fault. As a pet owner, do your part to raise a functional member of your family by investing time and in most cases money towards training your dog.

.

.

Most trainers like myself would be open to help others and their dog, do the right thing and seek help as you might be surprised.

Summer time is upon us, the weather is warming up and most of us at some point will be by some body of water. As much as we should look after our children’s safety, we too must keep an eye on our pets.

.

.

Their is a general belief that dogs can swim, that doggy paddling is something that they inherently know to do but this is not all true.

.

.

Certain breeds are simply not equipped for swimming, but they’re always exceptions to the rule. Here is a partial list of breeds that aren’t strong swimmers.

Think about it, they expect you to feed them everyday, on time and as much as they want. They’re always expecting you to share what you have with them.

.

You shelter them, keep them warm and dry when it’s raining or in a air conditioned home when it’s hot. You buy them toys and treats just for them but they still want more.

.

They want to be with you all day and sleep in the same bed if given the opportunity. A dog will pick his seat in a car and if well socialized will walk up to everyone, anywhere as if he knows he’s the center of attention and get petted cause it’s his right.

.

Let me not start with the price of training, grooming, doggy daycare, dog walkers, etc I’m sure you guys get the idea and when you begin to see it this way you’ll look at your dog and still say “I’ll do it again forever, if you just live forever”

Did you know that a child in the Boy or Girl Scouts can earn a badge for dog care, well they can. A badge of merit for pet care has been around since the early 1900’s and has evolved from First Aid to Animals to Veterinary Medicine as well as Pet Care.

Beginning my series of #peopleanddogseries @je…

Beginning my series of #peopleanddogseries @jessicanunex was the first to reply. This series is intended to show peoples love for their dogs, here’s Jessica’s story of her beloved Shar Pei’s.

.

.

Athena (brown colored) is a 4 year old female and the first Shar Pei she owned. Having encountered other Shar Pei’s, Jessica disliked their prickly coats but her husband convinced her to “just look” into one. After some searching, the last pup of a litter she found without a “prickly coat” was the one they brought home.

.

.

Realizing early her pup didn’t trust people, it was important for Athena to be socialized and since Jessica worked at a vet clinic at the time, taking her to work for socialization was ideal. Athena still has trust issues but will do anything for food as she’s known as a “fatty” at home.Typical of Shar Pei’s, she doesn’t like dogs that are her size or bigger and hates cats but ironically loves little dogs.

.

.

The blue Shar Pei is named Blue. He’s a 3 year old male who was a surprise Valentines gift from Jessica’s husband, believing that Athena needed a friend they brought him home and has become part of their family. Jessica feels he is more trust worthy of people even though he wasn’t socialized in the same manner and is considered more a people lover that loves to cuddle. He too doesn’t like dogs his size or bigger but is fine with smaller dogs.

.

.

They are absolutely loved and well cared for and as Jessica stated, since “I don’t have kids of my own they are my kids”

One of the worst thing you can instill in a child is FEAR. Fear of dogs, reptiles, animals in general. Fear of not being good enough, strong enough or loved enough.

.

.

Growing up in the inner city I witnessed for myself how a phobia of dogs were instilled in children. I had no fear of animals, let alone dogs and knew I would raise my kids to be the same way.

.

.

Here’s a small sample of my youngest children “living their best life” when it comes to hanging with dad, dogs and reptiles…..
