All Natural Tick Repellent for Dogs & Humans:101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 49

campgroundsIs your dog being constantly tormented and irritated (pun intended) by ticks, mosquito, fleas and tail biting bugs?  With summer just around the corner its time to tick & bug proof you and your dog prior to those fun filled hikes, outdoor excursions & camping trips. Ticks are carriers of many disease including Lyme Disease and dogs and humans can fall victim. Like anything, the best cure is prevention. But before you start praying yourself  & your furry buddy with harsh insecticides, we have a safer & healthier solution. All natural tick repellent is a great alternative to chemical repellents because it is safe, non-toxic and has no adverse side effects.Our friends at ehow came up with an all natural tick recipe to take the bite out of the dog days of summer.

All Natural Tick Repellent Recipe for You & Your Dog

1. Place a funnel into the top of a 12-ounce or larger bottle.

2. Pour 10 oz. of jojoba oil or aloe vera gel through the funnel into the bottle. The jojoba oil or aloe vera gel will serve as a base to dilute the neem oil. The oil is more effective at making the natural tick repellent stick to the skin or fur, but some people find the oil to be too greasy. If you prefer, substitute the jojoba oil for a different base oil, such as almond or olive oil.

3. Pour 1/2 oz. of organic neem oil through the funnel into the bottle.

4. Fasten the spray nozzle lid onto the bottle and shake the bottle for five minutes to combine the ingredients.

5. Shake the natural neem tick repellent before each use. Spray it lightly onto your dogs fur, avoiding eyes, ears, nose or genitals, once every two weeks.  You can even apply the neem oil liberally onto your skin before hiking or going into wooded areas. In the event that an allergic reaction occurs, such as irritation or rash, wash the Neem tick repellent off using soap and water.

Simple Dog Home Remedies for Doggone Dry Itchy Skin :101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 47

itcy-skin-dogDry, itchy skin can leave your dog feeling miserable and you going crazy over your dogs incessant scratching. All this scratching can be unbearable to watch and give you the itches. Well we are here to remedy the situation. Here are some easy, safe and natural remedies to soothe dry, itchy skin and give your dog some relief.

1. Vinegar & Water. Calm the itch by wetting the area with a solution of half vinegar and half cold water.

2. Oatmeal. Another remedy is to put a half cup of oatmeal in a quart of water, bring to a boil, strain, and let it cool to room temperature. Pat the mixture on the itchy spots.

3. Olive Oil & Lavender. Mix one half cup of  olive oil with one half teaspoon of lavender essential oil. Dip a cotton ball in the oil mixture and rub on the itchy areas.

4. Fish Oil. Apply fish oil directly to the skin and coat; or put a bit of the oil in your dog’s food once or twice a week or give as a fish oil capsule. Consult vet for proper dosage.

5. Aloe Vera. Aloe vera soothes and moisturizes dry or itchy skin. Cut open some leaves from an aloe vera plant and strip out the pulp. Gently massage the pulp and juice into your dog’s skin.

Consult vet if itching is persistent and does not get any better. This could be a tell tail sign of something more serious.

How To Enjoy The Beach With Your Dog:101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 46

family-on-the-beach1Summer vacation is just around the corner! One of the ways we love to enjoy the dog days of summer with our pugs is to spend a day or weekend at the beach. Nothing barks doggy paradise then sunny blue skies, sandy shores, cool waters, sea shells and waves rolling in. Almost all dogs love the beach and some fun in the sun. The beach is the perfect place for dogs to frolic, dig, swim, surf, roll, romp, play and get dirty. Here are few beach pet safety tips so you can enjoy time in the sun with your furry beach buddy. Surfs pups!

1. Check to make sure that dog’s are allowed at the beach you will be attending

2. Be law abiding pet owner citizens and make sure you read & understand the beach rules. If a leash is mandatory make sure you leash up and follow the rules.

3. The beach is for obedient and friendly dogs who can be on their best behavior. We recommend obedience classes and training for all dogs, especially if your dog is going to be accompanying on your travels and to public places.

4. Have your dog spayed or neutered, in the event that your dog runs away or becomes lost. Never bring a female dog in heat to the beach or public places, this could cause quite a stir among male dogs.

5. Hydration is key! Bring lots of water for the both of you and a bowl to quench your dog’s thirst in the heat. Collapsible bowls and oblong bowls that clip to a water bottle are available and may be more convenient.

6. Bring dog treats as away to praise & reward your dog for good behavior and to re-charge. Treats are a great way to gain your dogs attention.

7. It is always proper “petiquette” to pick up your dog’s #2 business. Not only is it the right thing to do but at many beaches is a law, those that do not abide may have to pay a hefty fine. Make to pack some biodegradable doggy pickup bags in your beach bag.

8.  Dog’s aren’t one to lay in the sun and tan. With bringing your dog to beach their is a higher risk of your dog getting a deadly heatstroke since shade is limited & non-existence. So to ease your mind bring an umbrella so your dog is not in direct sunlight. The umbrella will also help prevent sunburn.

9. Pack your dogs sunscreen because dogs can get sunburn too! You can purchase dog specific sunscreen at your local pet store. Apply sunscreen to your pet. Be sure to use sunscreen on lighter coats and sensitive spots such as the pet’s nose and tips of his ears.

10. Make sure to pack your dogs favorite ball or frisbee for a fun game of fetch in the sand.

11. If your dog is not a great swimmer make sure to bring a doggy life jacket.

12. Bring enough towels to dry off  your beachy wet dog and one to lay under your wet sandy dog in the car once your fun day in the sun is done.

13. Make sure your dog has a secure collar with proper id tags and is up-to-date on vaccinations.

How To Choose the Right Dog For You:101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 45

group_picDogs are amazing companions and offer up a ton of  unconditional love in wags, licks and snuggle time. They truly do make our lives happier and our days a bit brighter. To ensure a life time of fun and companionship it is important to choose the perfect dog or breed that fits your lifestyle. Here are a few things to consider if you are deciding on adding a furry addition to your loving family.

1.  Commitment: Pets are a commitment, but a worthy one! Determine how much time you will have to commit to your dog. Keep in mind some dog breeds require more attention and time spent with their owner then others. Dogs do not do well left alone or unattended for hours on end without attention and interaction.

2. Train-ability: You have to decide what dog you want based on its train-ability. Its important to make sure the dog or breed you choose is easy for you to train and lead since you are the pack leader.

3. Exercise: All dogs need exercise but the amount of exercise will be based on breed type. Some dogs & breeds require more exercise & strenuous playtime than others throughout the day. Make sure you have the time to give your dog a healthy and proper outlet to release any pent up energy.

4. Energy Levels: Based on your personality you may want to consider whether or not you want a  high energy dog or a low energy dog.

5.  Size: Pick a dog that is the right size for your home.

Bailey the English Bull Terrier (flickr pic by spectrefloat )

Height: 51-61 cm (20-24 inches)

Weight: 20-38 kg (44-85 pounds)

Coat: The coat of the English Bull terrier is extremely short, fine and harsh in texture and is very flat against the body

Color: The English Bull Terrier is white or any color with white markings. Brindle, fawn, brown and tan are common colors with or without white markings.

Appearance: The English Bull Terrier’s most recognizable feature is its head, described as ‘egg shaped’ when viewed from the front, almost flat at the top, with a Roman muzzle sloping evenly down to the end of the nose with no stop. The unique triangle-shaped eyes are small, dark, and deep-set. The body is full and round, while the shoulders are robust and muscular and the tail is carried horizontally. Bull terriers are known to have more muscle than any other breed of dog pound for pound. It walks with a jaunty gait, and is popularly known as the ‘gladiator of the canine race’.

Temperament: Though Bull Terrier’s was once a fierce gladiator, it is much gentler today, but will certainly defend its owner in a truly critical situation. Bull terriers are known to be courageous, scrappy, fun-loving, active, clownish and fearless. The Bull Terrier is a loyal and polite dog. They become very attached to their owners. The Bull Terrier thrives on firm, consistent leadership and affection and makes a fine family pet. Bull Terriers like to be doing something and fit in well with active families where they receive a great deal of companionship and supervision.

They do not do well in situations where they are left alone for 8 hours a day. This breed can be a wonderful pet if very thoroughly socialized and trained, but not recommended for most households. Fond of both grown-ups and children, but if they do not get enough physical and mental exercise they may be too energetic for small children. Children should be taught how to display leadership towards the dog. Meek owners will find them to become very protective, willful, possessive and/or jealous. Bull Terriers may try to join into family rough housing or quarrel. Bull Terriers must be given a lot of structure. Be sure to socialize them well and remain their pack leader 100% of the time, otherwise, they can be extremely aggressive with other dogs. Unaltered males may not get along with other male dogs. Males and females can live together happily and two females can also be a good combination with care and supervision. They are not recommended with other non-canine pets such as hamsters and guinea pigs. They make excellent watch dogs.

Health: The average lifespan of this breed is between 10-14 years. Like all dogs there are genetic and health problems found in the English Bull Terrier breed. The most common health conditions include: Patellar luxation -dislocated kneecaps, common in most medium to small breeds. Skin Allergies – prone to flea and environmental allergies. Zinc Deficiency- Lethal Acrodermatitis, seen by small birth weights and sizes, skeletal deformities, sores, fading of the coat and failure to grow. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder – prone to activities such as chronic tail chasing, scratching, chewing, anxiety type behaviors. Deafness – all white Bull terriers are prone to either being born deaf or going deaf very shortly after birth.

How To Care For A Vomiting Dog:101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 44

sick-dogAt some point in time as a pet owner your dog will experience vomiting and you will be on clean up duty. Dogs are notorious for eating things they are not suppose to and often times their poor judgment can get them in a lot of trouble and cause them to become sick. But sometimes vomiting can be a sure sign of a serious illness that needs immediate vet attention, so keep your eyes on alert within the first 24 hours. Here are a few at home tips to treat and care for a vomiting dog. It is important to show your dog some tender loving care.

1. Enforce a Food Fast. It is important to give your dogs digestive system some time to recoup and rest from the vomiting by not feeding your dog for 12-24 hours. You can give your dog small amounts of water to keep them hydrated. Food and large amounts of water will only aggravate your dogs upset stomach.

2. Keep your dog’s blood sugar levels in check. Since you will be withholding food from your dog it is important to monitor your dog’s blood sugar levels. Your dog may experience hypoglycemia or low blood sugar during the fasting phase.  Prevent low blood sugar levels by rubbing a small amount of a sugary fluid such as honey, karo syrup, maple syrup or sugar water on your dog’s gums. Repeat this every several hours.

3. Monitor Dogs Hydration. Vomiting can cause dehydration so make sure your dog remains hydrated in small amounts on a constant basis.   Monitor his intake and don’t let him drink to excess. Excessive, fast drinking is a common response to nausea in dogs but the problem is that it trigger dog vomiting and make the upset stomach worse. If necessary, limit the water available to the dog by doling it out in hourly rations. Offering your dog ice cubes will prevent dehydration and keep him from gulping down large amounts of water which can cause more vomiting.

Once your dog has gone 4 hours without vomiting then you can give him Pedialyte. Unflavored Pedialyte in small amounts (no more than 1/4 cup for a medium sized dog every 20 minutes) will help replenish your dogs fluids and counteract dehydration. Mix small amount of water 50/50 with Pedialyte. If the dog will not drink unflavored Pedialyte, try flavoring it with chicken or beef broth (onion-free) or add watered beef or chicken bullion for an appealing flavor.

4. Bland Food is Good. Normal dog food will only upset his stomach further. Once your dog has stopped vomiting for 12 hours feed your dog a homemade bland diet in small amounts for several days to gradually reintroduce food. Its good to make your dog a batch of Rice, white chicken meat with the skin removed and cottage cheese. You can also use plain hamburger meat that has been boiled and drained from fat. Initially feed your dog small amounts of this bland food and once 4 hours has passed without vomiting then you can give your dog a little more. The hope is that eventually your dog will be  back to eating his normal meal size. Once you see that your dog is feeling a lot better and is holding down his food, over the next 3-5 mix in the dog’s normal food, while gradually phasing out the homemade bland food. This gradual transition is vital to prevent a relapse of the dog’s vomiting.

5. Give Your Dog Some Pepto-Bismol. Make sure to ask your vet if you can give your dog a soothing dose of Pepto-Bismol or Kaopectate. This will help to  calm your dog’s stomach and keep the fluids down. If you get the okay from vet make sure to follow the instructions on the bottle, but the usual dose for a dog is  1 tsp per twenty pounds of body weight. For dogs less cooperative you can use a syringe or eyedropper to administer the Pepto -Bismol.

Important Note: ALWAYS Check with your vet before giving any over-the-counter medications to your pet, especially if he or she is on other medications.

6. Observe your dog’s vomit. Although looking at vomit is never an appetizing sight to see, its important to know what your dog was throwing up and the look of it in case a vet visit is in order. Check to see if stool material, blood (could be a sign of an infection, parasite or more serious ailments) or what looks like coffee grounds are present, if so seek vet help ASAP. You also may want to take a look at your dogs stool and bring in a sample to the vet. Also monitor your dog’s weight to make sure it is normal.

7. Examine dog’s gums. If your dogs gum are very pale this is a sign he or she is anemic and needs immediate medical attention.

Contact your dog’s veterinarian immediately if your dog vomits blood, appears to be in pain, acts weak and lethargic, has a fever or does not improve after 24 to 48 hours.
