How To Prevent Ticks From Frustrating Your Dog – 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 14

How To Prevent Ticks From Frustrating Your Dog – 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 14

One of the unavoidable – and unpleasant – inconveniences of owning a dog is the possibility of her getting ticks. Try to remember, she doesn’t like them any more than you do. You need to check her coat regularly, especially if she spends a lot of time outside. Otherwise, your pooch can contract Lyme disease, Anaplasmosis, and other illnesses. You might also find the pests inside your home.

If you have never seen a tick before, they can appear unsettling. There’s nothing to fear. In this article, we’ll explore how you can safely check for them and remove them. I’ll also explain how you can prevent their becoming a problem in the first place.

Checking And Removing Them

First, it’s important to realize what these pests do when they climb aboard your dog. They hide in grass and vegetation. When your canine companion brushes past, they transfer themselves to her coat. Then, they dig into her skin and begin feeding on her blood. They eventually fall off her body when they have finished feeding.

You should check your pooch’s coat every day if she ventures outside. The first step is to move your hand through her coat. If ticks are present, you’ll feel tiny bumps. If you find the pests, don gloves to protect your hands and use tweezers to extract them.

Be careful when using the tweezers. If you do the extraction poorly, you might inadvertently leave a portion of the body under your dog’s skin. Once you remove a tick, do not kill it by squeezing (that can lead to infection). Instead, place it in an enclosed container and flush its body down the toilet.

Your canine companion’s skin is going to be sensitive after you remove the burrowed ticks. Wash the affected area with soap and water, and apply an antiseptic in order to clean it.

Preventing Their Presence

There are a number of topical formulations and other products that are sold in pet supply stores which can help prevent your dog from getting ticks. But, none are infallible. Common products include K9Advantix, Frontline Plus, and Proticall, but speak with your veterinarian and ask for recommendations.

A Tick-Free Dog Is A Happy One

Your pooch can’t do the job alone. She can scratch and bite at the ticks which are burrowing under her skin, but she relies upon you to get them out for her. Check her coat every day, especially during the warm seasons. If you find them, remove them and clean the affected area. Finally, ask your vet to recommend tick prevention products. Not only will your dog be grateful for your help, but you’ll be glad you took the time.

101 Dog Care Tips – Positive Reinforcement – Best Bully Sticks – Tip 13

101 Dog Care Tips – Positive Reinforcement – Best Bully Sticks – Tip 13

Although it is very hard to refrain from yelling at your dog or punishing them when they do something wrong, research has shown the positive reinforcement is a better, more productive approach.

Positive reinforcement includes giving your pet something pleasant or rewarding them immediately after she/he does something you want them to do. Positive reinforcement makes your pooch more likely to repeat that behavior in the future.  It is one of your most powerful tools for shaping or changing your dog’s behavior.

Correct timing is essential when using positive reinforcement. The reward must occur immediately, within seconds, or your pet may not associate it with the behavior warranting the treat or praise.  For example, if you have your dog to stay, but reward them after they have already come towards you, they think they are being rewarded for coming towards you.

Consistency is also very important.  If you only reward them periodically, they will become confused and not know how to respond.  In addition, the treats that you give as a reward should be irresistible to your pet.  Something that is just okay will not be enticing for them to continue the behavior.  Treats like pieces of lamb weasand, Kangaroo treats, and Plato dog treats are great things to try, because we have found our pooches to think they are “irresistible”!

Spot Light on Breed – Cocker Spaniel

Weight 15 – 30 pounds
Height 14.5 – 15.5 inches
Coat
Color buff, black. and other solid colors, merle, black and tan

Appearance

The Cocker Spaniel is the smallest member of the Sporting Group. The Cocker Spaniel has very long hanging ears, a rounded head, and a profuse, silky, feathered, medium-length coat. They stand well up at the shoulder on straight forelegs with a topline sloping slightly toward strong, moderately bent, muscular quarters. They are capable of considerable speed, combined with great endurance. Above all, they love to be free and merry, sound, well balanced throughout and in action show a keen inclination to work. A dog well balanced in all parts is more desirable than a dog with strongly contrasting good points and faults.

Temperament

The Cocker Spaniel is a happy, friendly and enthusiastic dog that is great with families and children. They are more likely to wag their tail and welcome a stranger than they are to act aggressive or territorial, although some Cocker Spaniels are good watchdogs and will bark when someone approaches. They are not a dominant breed of dog and are typically very willing and obedient and have an average ability to learn.The Cocker Spaniel is an excellent companion dog and is rarely dog aggressive especially if socialized properly

Health

Some major concern in American Cocker Spaniels are cataracts, glaucoma and patellar luxation. Some minor concerns are hip dysplasia, ectropion, entropion, PRA, allergies, seborrhea, lip fold pyoderma, otitis externa, liver disease, urolithiasis, prolapse of nictitans gland, CHF, phosphofructokinase deficiency, and cardiomyopathy. Occasionally seen are gastric torsion and elbow dysplasia. Also IMHA (Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia)
