Hip dysplasia is an inherited condition that o…

Hip dysplasia is an inherited condition that occurs when the hip joint made up of a ball and socket is improperly formed causing the joint to rub and grind instead of sliding smoothly and can drastically reduce your dogs quality of life. The deformation of the joint causes wear, deterioration and eventual loss of function of the joint. Other factors include a dogs weight, level of physical movement and nutrition.

.

.

Sуmрtоmѕ of thе condition uѕuаllу appear in аdult dogs, уоung dogs may аlѕо bе affected. All dog breeds can get hip dysplasia, but lаrgе breeds аrе usually more susceptible. Thеrе аrе vаrіоuѕ trеаtmеntѕ fоr the condition; frоm nаturаl pain relief, lifestyle changes, and in extreme cases, corrective surgery. With proper knowledge and care a dog can still live a long and comfortable life. 

.

.

Signs of hір dуѕрlаѕіа:
* Decreased activity and not wanting to go out for walks, or climbing stairs
* “Bunnу-hорріng”
* Limping or lameness in the back end
* Dіffісultу іn getting uр
* Pain and Stiffness

.

.

Prevention is always the best treatment. Inherited hip dysplasia cannot be fully prevented, responsible breeders should screen for the disease and let the buyer know what to expect. Other preventative measures include wеіght control as exсеѕѕ wеіght аddѕ stress tо thе dоg’ѕ hір joints. Some simple things you can do to control your dog’s weight include measuring exactly how much you feed them, treating them only when they’ve earned it, and taking at least one walk daily for 20-30 minutes (but avoid prolonged runnіng аnd jumping).

Dog Mange, microscopic mites that burrow under…

Dog Mange, microscopic mites that burrow under skin. Two types: Demodectic and Sarcoptic Mange (also called dog scabies)
Demodetic Mange is usually kept under control due to a healthy and strong immune syste in mature dogs. Younger dogs and older dogs with weakened immune systems are more vulnerable.

.

.

In some cases puppies can acquire mites through their mother during pregnancy. Usually a puppy will heal itself as their immune system matures but when clinical signs appears and infestation spreads, seek veterinarian care.

.

.

Sarcoptic Mange (contagious to humans) is the other type that needs more attention. They appear as small red hairless bumps with pimples, thickness of skin and puss. Scaling around the eyes, mouth and front legs is also common. When a dog is infected with this type it’s skin is extremely itchy and hardened.

.

.

In some cases, a dog will scratch so much that a skin scrape will be ordered (where a piece of skin is scratched off to analyze under a microscope) but find that dog might not have any mites since they’ve scratched them away only to leave behind itchy toxins. Since the diagnosis for demodectic and sarcoptic mange is based on the type of mite that is found (cigar shaped are demodectic and round shaped are sarcoptic) skin scraping will not always be as accurate and in most cases owners will simply treat for mange only to see if there is a reduction in symptoms.

.

.

If you have more than one dog at home, all should be treated. Also, mites can jump to humans so wash up after handling any pets with symptoms. Sleeping and common areas should be disinfected to avoid re-infestation. Wash all of your pets belongings with detergent and hot water.

.

.

After care is essential to help keep mange from reappearing, dry irritated skin condition can be restored with a Omega-3 Fatty Acid supplement for your dogs skin. Proper diet, heavily meat based would also help build immunity and a healthy skin and coat.

Living in the moment, easy to say, hard to do …

Living in the moment, easy to say, hard to do but not for a dog. A dog senses time different versus humans as they live in the moment, without thoughts of the past or future. Brooding about our past or future can take away from our happiness, something a dog will not suffer from.

.

.

Although dogs remember people, lessons learned (commands) and impactful events such as the death of a family member (dogs and humans) they’re resilient and will eventually find their rhythm and be back living in the moment.

.

.

Living in the moment like our pets can help us enjoy life more fully as we shouldn’t impede our chances of being happy by fretting about the past or worrying about a future that has yet to happen. Like our dogs, we would be better off if we were to learn to engage in this practice of living in the moment.

From a trainers point of view, we see things that a client doesn’t. What you’re witnessing here is a 5 month old puppy walking with its owner and myself giving out the commands as to when to turn and to stop all the while never stopping.

.

.

From my standpoint I’m directing my client to counter correct the dog as she’s walking with her. Most people stop and wouldn’t know what to do in this instance as the puppy is being rambunctious as well as annoying (trying to bite the leash) but any good trainer would identify what’s going on and make the dog work through it.

.

.

Tip of the day: if you do the opposite of what your dog wants to do in a walk, you’ll correct the walk without realizing it. Take for instance, if they want to walk fast, slow down. If they pull right, go left.

My fellow comrade/dog trainer whom I admire and have much respect for Leri Hanson (pictured) posted this recently. Circa early 90’s, I was between 12 & 14 years old taking a bite from “A Whole Lotta Rosie” SCH 3, WH, BH, GRCH UCDX

A large farm, cattle, catch and fighting dog is one that usually is in top shape. One that is agile and lean, today the dogs although beautiful in their own right has lost some of that due to the “bigger is better” ideals that some breeders have adopted.

Very few breeds have gone through the years with changes that favor them, the #poodle is one of those breeds. A water and gun dog, it’s coat is typically what makes this breed standout most. Swipe (left) and see the corded look of hair versus the blown out look today. The latter was initially thought to help the dogs float in the water while swimming.
