4 to 8 Dog Agility Jumps Makes Ideal Training

We often ask, "How many jumps should I start with?" You can never have too much of a leap to agility training. A good starting place is four jump. This is a leap to an absolute minimum we recommend.

You can teach a variety of skills, training, and exercises with four to jump. Four jump will allow you to work on short-channel leap or jump grid. You can setup a "box" with a jump and practice handling, collection, and 270-degree jump. You can teach your dog jumping left and right. You can be outside the box and send your dog or you can handle from the box. You can skip the setup in a horizontal line, so you can practice serpentines and threadles.

Go the next step and get eight jump. Now you can setup two boxes with one introductory jump. You are now multiplied by your practice that you can practice with your dog. You can jump grid of recommended size and number of jumps. You also can set up your jump in a circle with a bar jump perpendicular to the circle or the circumference of a circle. This pattern also allows you to practice various skills.

The next consideration is the double jump and triple jump. You can set two or three single jump together to make your extended jump, but it has two and three courses you jump in the work is really valuable to practice. We have seen many dogs run a clean course and the last is a triple barrier and the dog was not ready for it, and bang, down comes the bar.

You can really pack on the front and has two sets of eight jumps. This is the best in training because you can keep jumping into the clutches of the time apart from your course work, and has eight one-hopped into the course of work. And when you include two and three, you can really practice all the skills and training necessary to make the jump you are "Qs". Read more...

How to Take Care of your Dog

Bond that can arise between people and a dog can be very powerful, especially if it has strengthened the bond of life with each other for years, I personally have been in tears after losing our family dog who was like a friend to me from my birth until I was like 15 years old, when he was hit by a car one morning.

Dogs serve many different needs for the people. Some people get dogs because they are lonely and need a loyal friend, or because they want a dog to protect the house. A dog is well taken and attention given on a regular basis will give his life to help protect homes and their owners. For the blind dog can be a pair of eyes to help them get around and for a police dog can be the most important and loyal partner, with a nose that no one can beat.

The first thing you need to know about caring for dogs are dogs need lots of practice. This is the same for large dogs and small dogs. All dogs need to spend at least once every 8 hours and should be given at least a 20 minute walk to give the dog fresh air, exercise and a chance to escape.

It is also important to play with the dog regularly. This may mean going to the park on weekends or public holidays and have some fun pick up games, while throwing the ball in the backyard or on the ground wrestling with the dog, but make sure if you ruff housing with a little dog that you do not accidentally hurt the dog. Playing with the dog for half an hour a day, not just good dogs for physical health, but an excavation that is played with regularly are mentally healthy and less likely to be a dog of depression, as well as lowering blood pressure and it will also resolved to form a bond between you and your dog, which will be extended to your family if you should start to have one after the dog.

What do you eat your dog is very important for the dog continued good health. Dog food better be marked for what is the appropriate food groups for.

Antibiotics? I Think Not

Have you noticed that doctors are now much more reluctant to give a prescription for antibiotics unless it proves that you are suffering from a bacterial infection? Well, I wish I could say better late than never, but in the case of antibiotics, we are very late.

Antibiotics have been called a modern miracle and they do save lives, at a time. The problem is that they have been so much overused and not only for bacterial infections, but for every thing a doctor does not know how to treat. In fact, even if the virus disease, we are routinely given a prescription for antibiotics so we will be happy to go home and feel as if a doctor to help us recover.

The truth is, we would have been much better than the people NOT get antibiotics for every illness that we encounter. Our immune system would have been much more helpful if we would stay home and rest, drink plenty of fluids, and enhance our immune system with natural herbal and homeopathic medicines, and whole food supplements.

The reason is, because antibiotics have been so widely used, superbugs have emerged that are vulnerable to leave us with no way UNLESS your immune system strong because you and your pet has been eating natural foods, using whole foods and natural supplements, and exercise, so Your body naturally protected.

By relying so much on antibiotics that will cure us all, together with steroids we've disrupted and our immune systems of our pets and leave them wide open and susceptible to these superbugs that keep coming all the time.

"Our society has conditioned a quick fix and band-aid medicines. We know from experience that this, often times, only to give temporary relief and can even produce a reflection effect symptoms or side effects are not desirable. Complimentary medicine, particularly homeopathy and Herbs, can play a huge role in the success of our husbandry. Homeopathy and Herbs in essence, a natural healing process, providing solutions to help patients to regain health by stimulating the body's natural powers of recovery.

The good news is there are alternatives we can use that will give us healthy, strong pets that can resist these superbugs. First, by using a homeopathic or holistic veterinarian, you can talk with them about what your choices to help keep their pets optimal health. Each animal is as different from each one of us. If you care for your pet as a whole, that is for the whole animal rather than wait to treat a particular disease, you're in front of the game.

By eating natural foods for your pet species, such as raw food diet for cats and dogs, and combines all the food supplements, prebiotics and probiotics, you do not need to concern ourselves about antibiotics and their harmful side effects.

Something that is happening is that superbugs are not only able to transmit from animals to humans, but I know it can only be transmitted from animals to Man, and this superbug is called MRSA. Although not as seen in the United States, it quickly became a problem in the UK. This is a superbug, bacterial infection that has been developed as a result of overusing antibiotics.

Body should have 80% friendly bacteria and about 20% bad bacteria in the digestive tract. After the use of antibiotics, the body will not have more than 20% 80% friendly bacteria and bad bacteria if not more.

Most illness, disease and problems begin in the digestive tract. Thus, antibiotics create the potential for serious illness to begin.

You may not give your pet antibiotics, but if you have ever eaten foods with preservatives, you have to give your pet what I call 'hidden antibiotics'. The task is to control bacterial preservatives and once your pet eats food with preservatives, it will eventually have an effect on the digestive tract too and kill the friendly bacteria.

You must expect it will take at least 1 year to recolonize the digestive tract with friendly bacteria after antibiotic use.

Recolonize digestive tract with friendly bacteria by using supplements and natural foods.

Now is the time to be proactive and change this. By not remaining apathetic, but by taking action in your life and the life of your pet, we can and will make a difference.

One more thing that gives us a lot of hope and one that has me jumping for joy are therapeutic grade essential oils. In 1985 Dr. Jean Claude Lapraz, MD, conducts research using therapeutic grade essential oils Oregano and Cinnamon in testing their "antibiotic" like qualities. What he found was that not a single bacteria or virus can live in the presence of this oil!

That's the direction I have taken for themselves, family and pets and I hope you will consider doing the same thing. Read more...

20 Most Common Dog Health Problems

Treating the root of the most common dog health problem is the only way to really cure them. Unfortunately, most dog owners and veterinarians are not focused on the proper combination of conventional and holistic treatments. Learn why this is important, health issues that apply and where to find specialized care for the 20 most common diseases.

Common dog health problems like weeds

If you have weeds in your yard or garden, how do you delete it? There are three ways, and the effectiveness of each method are directly related to how you handle your health problems dog :

Cutting the stems of wild grass with a dog like you just deal with symptoms (such as applying the cream for the rash). On the surface, the problem will disappear, but the underlying roots will eventually cause the weeds to grow back.

Spray them with weed killer
Weed spraying is like giving a dog a man-made drugs to fix the problem. Weeds do not like it and probably will die, but the killer weeds will also affect the surrounding healthy grass. And after all the sweeping grass killer, weeds may be returned.

Removing the grass and roots
This is the only sure way to completely get rid of weeds, such as pursuing root cause of a health problem completely is the only effective way to treat it.

So, how do you overcome the "root cause" of the dog's health problems?

Entering the right combination of holistic and conventional medicine to your dog's care.

Think about it ...

If you only treat your dog with the conventional method, you just deal with symptoms and not the cause of symptoms. Here are some examples of how conventional techniques only drugs and cope with symptoms and not the cause :

  • Warts. Cut them. They grow back.
  • Allergies. Give them a pill. The pills stopped, the allergy again.
  • Skin problems. Apply cream. The problem is gone, and months later returned.

Caring for your dog holistically addresses the root causes of problems. This gives your dog all the body's ability to fight health problems forever, not just one problem at a time when they arise. Caring for your dog this way include :

  • A different approach to vaccination
  • A healthy diet
  • Appropriate training
  • Natural treatment for acute problems (chemical composition of medicines that have not been modified by humans)
  • Natural treatment in concert with conventional treatments is a good time (sometimes the "best of both worlds" is the most effective)

The weakness of the holistic approach is that it requires patience. But your dog will thank for it!

Dog diseases usually do not develop overnight. While the physical manifestation of a problem (such as rash or warts) probably just "appeared" one day, the possibility that the problem has been brewing in your dog's system for some time.

Turning your dog diseases, the same amount of time may be needed. Your dog's immune system will learn how to fight the problem (and stay away) by themselves for the long term, and it usually does not happen soon.

In general, the longer the problem has been taken to develop, the longer time required to treat holistically.

Along the road from diarrhea to cancer, the 20 most common problems can all be treated more effectively through the right combination of holistic and conventional treatments, including (we'll share a link to the specific conditions for each at the bottom of the page) :

  • Allergies
  • Constipation
  • Cancer
  • Diarrhea
  • Ear problems
  • Epilepsy
  • Eye problems
  • Flatulent
  • Lice
  • Incontinence
  • Lice
  • Mange
  • Pink Eye
  • Skin
  • Ticks
  • Urination problems
  • Vomiting
  • Warts
  • Wormwood
  • Yeast infection

Symptoms Should Get Worse Before They Get Better

Interestingly, when you treat your dog holistically their symptoms actually appear to get a little worse before they get better. This is what you want! This means that your dog's body is dealing with the problem by itself.

And while the main symptoms may get slightly worse before getting better, usually you'll see the rest of your dog's health and mood began to improve immediately.

You will know the treatment works if you see symptoms your dog to do one of the following :

  • Stopped migrating to other parts of the body
  • Stay on the skin (or moved there) and out of the internal organs
  • Away from the head and vital organs and to the outside and the lower body extremities
  • Stop affects the mind, including mood swings or fatigue (in the wild, this allows the dog to maintain their survival instincts at its peak)

For example, if your dog's health problems impact the internal organs, prior to the holistic treatment you may not see any problem outside the body. After treatment, the body can encourage diseases of organs and their heads, so you may see a rash develop on their feet or to the rear of their bodies. This usually means that the body of your dog doing the right thing and being on the road to recovery. Read more...

How to Take Care of Your Dog

Bond that can arise between people and a dog can be very powerful, especially if it has strengthened the bond of life with each other for years, I personally have been in tears after losing our family dog who was like a friend to me from my birth until I was like 15 years old, when he was hit by a car one morning.

Dogs serve many different needs for the people. Some people get dogs because they are lonely and need a loyal friend, or because they want a dog to protect the house. A dog is well taken and attention given on a regular basis will give his life to help protect homes and their owners. For the blind dog can be a pair of eyes to help them get around and for a police dog can be the most important and loyal partner, with a nose that no one can beat.

The first thing you need to know about caring for dogs are dogs need lots of practice. This is the same for large dogs and small dogs. All dogs need to spend at least once every 8 hours and should be given at least a 20 minute walk to give the dog fresh air, exercise and a chance to escape.

It is also important to play with the dog regularly. This may mean going to the park on weekends or public holidays and have some fun pick up games, while throwing the ball in the backyard or on the ground wrestling with the dog, but make sure if you ruff housing with a little dog that you do not accidentally hurt the dog. Playing with the dog for half an hour a day, not just good dogs for physical health, but an excavation that is played with regularly are mentally healthy and less likely to be a dog of depression, as well as lowering blood pressure and it will also resolved to form a bond between you and your dog, which will be extended to your family if you should start to have one after the dog.

• Stress management?
• Period of relaxation?
• Play?
• Favorite indulgence in moderation?

Practices that are the same that makes you stay healthy will help keep your pet healthy, too!

Nutrition is the key. As you would for your own nutritional choices, learn to read food labels can be confusing labels.Pet, to say the least; even more than forhuman labeled food consumption, and, like our food, pet food standards aimed at lowestend of nutritional spectrum. If you choose foods that almost did not get the theminimum everyday needs, then so your pet! That's just not good enough, not bya long shot.

Not only must you learn to read labels, you need to educate yourself on what your pet really nutritional requirements, not just what to say AAFCO minimum standards, but what your pets need to grow, rather than survive. Watch how your pet acts and feels when you add things or change the part of the diet; make a note if you need to remember what you want to add or make sure you never feed him again.

Intelligent exercise is equally important to your pet's health because of your own, maybe even more. It is important that your pets get enough exercise, but not too much stress joints and muscles, especially when they are still growing. Jumping and walking on hard surfaces, especially concrete and asphalt can set a young pet to the early onset of arthritis and other joint deterioration. Heating and cooling and stretching before and after training hard, especially if there is heavy power involved, just as a good practice for them as for you.

Sleep. . . "Sleep that knits up arms raveled treatment, death every day life, sore labor bath, balm hurt minds, great nature just a second, the head of the party nourisher in life." William Shakespeare

So true. Sleep is magic. That all of the restoration and renewal to ensure that work well from the body's metabolism. This is one area where we must take cues from our pets and let them look out for our welfare! Very rare animals remove themselves from sleep, and then only in the direst situations.

Cleanliness is so important, and, while your pets do not really care about the BO, if you can kiss your pet without a true closer, it's time for some businesses to go to the bathroom. Skin is the largest organ of the body and keeping it relatively clean, but not obsessive to the point of stripping the natural oils from your pet, will go a long way toward maintaining the integrity of it.

If you can smell the mouth, time for some brushing his teeth. Very helpful, if you've picked your pet from childhood, to adjust to brush my teeth. If you refuse to accept brushing pets, find something they can chew to help keep tartar at bay.

Stress management. . . yes, your pet will be stressed. Probably no more than the things the same as you do, such as whether or not to check the bucket will bounce, but the stress is there, still, whether it is caused by separation or storms, unbearable life unnervingly quiet or noisy. Desensitization training can be very helpful, and there are natural solutions, like Dr Bach's Rescue Remedy, which brought relief to many animals too worried.

Every creature under the sun takes a break to unwind and just Be. Provide your pet with a quiet place them where they know that they can go and be without interruption, no matter whether it was day or night. Be careful to ensure that heaven is available when there is company.

Gotta play! Play combines the benefits of exercise and stress management into one exciting package. Get double benefit from it - enjoy playing together with your pet, whether on the floor wrestling with the mastiff, interesting with your Terrier, or throw a ball retriever, play, play hard and make sure you laugh some, too.

We all need to live a little indulgence, whether it's chocolate for ourselves or animal crackers for the animals. Loosen up is good for the spirit, which in turn is good for the body. Moderation is key, as usual, and with the exception of a few foods that are poisonous to pets, a little something from the kitchen with your favorite people are both able to enjoy. Read more...

Incessant Dog Barking

Dogs bark for a number of reasons. Sometimes it can be a good reason as to warn of an intruder or to express fear or pain. Sometimes it can be "bad" reasons as far as human beings - an attempt to sound threatening or just to get attention fall into this category. Whatever the reasons for dogs barking, it can be regarded as a nuisance by the dog owners and their neighbors together. Because of this there are several methods used to control barking dogs.


So far the best method to control barking incessantly is to train the dog not barking or, more specifically, to bark only at the right time. There are several ways to achieve this, but dog trainers usually agree that traditional reward and reprimand system the most effective and best for use.

Some people choose to electronic "bark collar" as a shortcut to train their own dogs. The collar contains an electronic device that is activated by the act of barking dogs. Problem small electric shock devices are sick and shocking dogs. Eventually the dog may associate the negative stimulus with the barking and stops doing it.

Problems with this system a lot, but. Some dogs just do not learn that barking is the cause of negative stimuli, and continues to bark even if it causes discomfort. Particularly hairy dogs may not even feel a shock or activate the device because the metal points must contact the skin directly in order to deliver a surprise. Also, the collar itself is not sufficient and should be supported with training, too. This is a bad idea to use a collar for a period of time.

Some owners find the concept of giving electric shocks to dogs to be "cruel." While that may be a matter of personal opinion, the collar proved to provide only a little discomfort for a short time and will not really harm the dog. Another type of collar that operates on the same principle gives citronella mist in front of the dog's nose. Dogs hate the smell and soon realize that it was caused by barking. Citronella collar success rate can be compared with people from various electronics.


So far the most extreme method to control barking dogs is to have it undergo debarking surgery. In this procedure a small fold of tissue is removed from the dog larynx, rendering it unable to bark. Some find this procedure to be inhumane and, because of barking dogs can be returned after a few months, certainly less than perfect method which some veterinarians will recommend. Read more...

  • Is there a signed certificate of veterinary health, plus a written health guarantee from the breeder, including one against birth defects?

  • Are all the health information available and updated?
  • Can provide the breeder and AKC registration papers of the CAC on the puppy?
  • What is the lineage of the puppies? A responsible breeder should be able to tell you the line of generations back, and give you a pedigree dog.
