How to Ease Your Dog’s Fear of Fireworks: 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 109

While Independence Day is a time to celebrate, your dog may not be as excited. Loud, unpredictable noises from fireworks and patriotic crowds can be scary for your pet. Your dogs keen sense of hearing, nine times more acute than human hearing, may have him cowering behind the couch or covering his eyes. However, your dog is not alone, fear of fireworks and loud noises is a fairly common phobia for many dogs. Even the most confident dog can become spooked by fireworks causing him to panic, bark, run away wagging their tail between their legs or scurrying under the bed. Here are a few tips on  easing your anxious dog’s fear of fireworks.

1. Don’t change your behavior. Many people feel compelled to baby their dogs when the dog is showing signs of fear. We pet them more than usual, cuddle them, and talk to them in soft voices. Rather than easing a dog’s fears, however, this often reinforces the dog’s fearful behaviors.

2. Try not to react to the fireworks yourself. If you jump or tense up when you hear fireworks because you are anticipating your dog’s fear, you may make his fear worse. Your body language can tell a dog that there is a reason to be afraid.

3. Drown out the sound of the fireworks. Try to turn up the radio or television and keep your windows closed during the fireworks. If the weather permits, a fan or air conditioner (if your dog isn’t afraid of those sounds) can help, too.

4. Don’t push your dog past his comfort zone. Allow him to hide if he feels more comfortable in his crate or under a bed. Don’t pull him out or try to force him closer to the fireworks in an attempt to get him used to the sounds. This may result in an increase in fear, and a frightened dog may become aggressive if pushed past his comfort level.

5. Prescribe sedative or anxiety relief pill. For dogs with severe fear of fireworks a vet may prescribe an anti-anxiety medication or sedative to keep your dog calm and collective during Fourth of July festivities.

Pet Friendly 4th of July Pet Safety Tips: 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 108

Nothing says we love America then colorful fireworks blasting to the tune of the “rockets red glare”and many of our favorite patriotic tunes. Patriotic American’s dressed in their finest red, white and blue attire as they watch in amazement waving their American flags.

But before you head out for your 4th of July outdoor celebrations with dog wagging his or her tail behind you, remember…. safety first. With the 4th of July just around the corner here are some pet safety tips so you and your dog can have an enjoyable and safe Holiday.

1. NEVER leave dog in unattended parked car. Remember a car can reach high temperatures in minutes even with windows cracked. Heat exposure can result in organ damage, heart problems and sudden death. Partially opened windows on hot days do not provide sufficient air flow but can put your pet in jeopardy of being stolen. So, leave your dog at home if you are considering locking them in the car.

2. Stay Shaded. Like humans dogs can also suffer from heatstroke, so avoid by keeping your dog in shaded areas on very hot and warms days. Remember that dogs swear from the pads of their feet and cool off by panting so they need extra help cooling down in the warm weather. Protect your pet from potentially deadly heatstroke by keeping your pet shaded from the sun when the mercury rises.

3. Stay hydrated! Dehydration is the #1 concern and danger during those long summer heat waves. Make sure you have a generous amount of fresh water on hand to quench your dog’s thirst, especially during and after a good game of 4th of July fetch or Frisbee. Keep a large bowl of water under a shaded tree or pavilion to keep the water cool. Fill the water bowl with half water and half ice.

4. Scaredy Dog. Your dog can become easily frightened by 4th of July fireworks and loud celebrations. Make sure your pet is wearing a properly fitted collar with proper identification & tags just in case your pet becomes scared and runs away from home. Better yet, you might want to have your pet micro-chipped as a precaution to make it easier for your pet to be returned home safely & promptly.  Around the 4th of July their appears to be an upsurge in lost pets and strays so keep a watchful eye on your pet whereabouts at all time.

5. Firework-phobic dogs. Knowing your dog’s temperament is half the battle. Fireworks are no blast for some pets, with many dogs becoming easily frightened by unfamiliar loud noises, lightening and thunderstorms. Unfortunately the 4th of July is filled with the deafening sound of loud fireworks bursting with light and loud celebrations. So you can imagine that this can cause some pets to cower, shiver, panic, escape or go in a destructive chewing rampage (put away precious family heirlooms). Leaving your dog indoors (not leashed in the yard) on the 4th of July in a safe, secure, escape proof room of the house with comfy bed, food and water is the safest option. We would advise someone to stay home with the pet, but if your dog is left alone lower the blinds and turn on the tv or radio at normal volume to keep your pet company, this will help to disguise those terrifying loud 4th of July noises. If he is crate trained put him in his crate covered with a blanket to make him feel secure. For preventive measures make sure all doors (doggy doors), windows, and gates are closed and locked securely.

6. Alcohol Free Zone. If you and your dog are invited to any Independence Day picnic or BBQ celebrations remember that alcoholic beverages have the potential to poison pets so NEVER leave your beverage unattended. If alcohol is ingested, your pet could become very intoxicated and weak, severely depressed or could go into a coma. In very severe instances death from respiratory failure caused by alcohol consumption can result.

7. No picnic table and grill scraps. Always be aware of what friends and family are sneaking and forking your dog under the table. While tempting on such a festive occasion, human food (bones, onions, avocado, grapes and raisins) should be off limits at all times to your dog. Some human food may be toxic or dangerous if ingested and cause stomach upset. So advise friends and family to NOT feed your dog table scraps.  Like us your vet would advise you to maintain your dog’s normal & strict diet to avoid potential health problems or an emergency run to the vet.

8. 4th of July Decorations. Remember that your pet may easily mistake your red, white and blue decorations and glow sticks as chew toys. So, make sure to dog proof your home and keep fun glow sticks out of paws reach.

Cleaning Your Dogs Ears : 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 107

Listen up! Thorough and regular ear cleaning and maintenance can help your dog avoid ear problems and infections. Also it will help you familiarize yourself with your dogs ears so you can recognize abnormalities. But many dogs they dread getting their ears cleaned making it difficult for you. Here are a few tips to make the ear cleaning experience a positive one for you both!

1. Trim or gently pluck hair inside dogs ears. Some dog breeds have a great deal of hair inside their ears. Begin by plucking or trimming the hair inside the dog’s ears to improve air flow and visibility while cleaning the dog’s ears. It is generally not painful to pluck a dog’s ear hair, but pluck small bunches of hair at a time to avoid discomfort.

2. Apply ear cleaning solution to a cotton ball or Q-tip. To make the actual ear cleaning process quicker, begin by moistening several cotton balls/cotton pads and several Q-tips.

3. Wipe away ear wax and build up. Using the damp cotton pad or cotton ball, gently wipe away the dog’s ear build-up and ear wax. This will remove large portions of the ear gunk.

4. Clean the nooks and crannies of your dog ear gently with a Q-tip. To get in all those little nooks and crannies of the dog’s ear, use the damp Q-tips to clean away any remaining visible ear wax and ear build-up. Only clean the parts of the ear that are visible -  DO NOT stick the Q-tip down the dogs ear canal, which can be damaging to your dogs ear and hearing.

5. Give the dog a biscuit! Reward your dog with a treat for good behavior during and at the end of the ear cleaning process. Positive reinforcement with treats and kind, encouraging voice will make for a positive experience for your pup.

6. REPEAT ear cleaning once a week. Regular ear cleanings are vital to prevent ear infections in dogs. This also enables pet owners to spot an infection and act quickly if the dog does develop an ear infection.

**If your dog has floppy ears then you will need to clean them more often due to poor air circulation, which can serve as the breeding grounds for ear infections.

***Ease your dog into ear cleaning by gently massaging their ears and rewarding with treat. Then once they are use to their ears being touch attempt an ear cleaning

What are signs your dog needs a to see a vet? If your dog is scratching ears constantly, ears are smelly & odorous, red or inflamed,  or if your dog is constantly shaking his head seek vet assistance to rule our existing ear infection or other ear problem.

Facts About Dog Sunburn: 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 105

Dogs are not immune to getting sunburn, in fact can just as easily become a burnt hot dog. Just like humans dogs are at high risk of suffering from skin damage and skin cancer caused by over exposure to the sun’s UV rays. To much sun can leave a dog sunburned and miserable. So before your dog hits the beach, nap in their sunny spot, frolic along hiking trails and enjoy the great outdoors it is important to know the facts about sunburn. Most importantly don’t forget to lather Fido with doggy sunscreen. Here are few things all pet owners must know about recognizing, preventing and treating sunburn.

Which dogs are susceptible to sunburn?

  • Any dog that consistently spends time in the sun during the hottest parts of the day;
  • Dogs that have white or light colored hair;
  • Dogs that have very short hair, or no hair at all; and
  • Dogs that have suffered a loss of fur through allergies, hot spots or medical treatment.

What are the signs of sunburn?

  • Red skin; and/or
  • Hair loss; and/or
  • Sores;

What areas of the body are prone to sunburn?

Those parts where there is little hair covering and/or where the skin pigmentation is low; specifically:

  • Nose;
  • Ends of the ears;
  • Around the mouth;
  • Eyelids
  • Your dog’s underside – belly, groin and inside the legs; these areas are particularly at risk where your dog is on a reflective surface, such as walking on a concrete path.

What’s the best way to prevent dog sunburn?

  • Keep your dog inside in a cool room, or if he’s outside, in adequate shelter during the hottest parts of the day;
  • Use a sunscreen on those parts of his body susceptible to sunburn. Use a pet sunscreen because those produced for human use contain ingredients that are toxic to your dog. Remember to regularly reapply the sunscreen as it will wear, or be licked, off relatively quickly;
  • You can buy bodysuits for your dog that protect them from UV rays – if your dog is continually out in the sun, this may be the best option, and your vet should be able to provide you with more information on these products; and
  • If you regularly have your dog clipped in the summer, think about leaving his coat a bit longer so the hair offers some protection. Talk to your dog’s groomer about clipping your dog – some dog breed’s hair is designed to insulate the dog from the sun’s heat and if you clip it off, you may be doing more harm than good to your dog.

How do you soothe a sunburned dog?

  • Use aloe vera, nature’s ointment. The juice from the aloe vera plant will help reduce infection and scarring and speed the healing process. If you have a plant available, break off the tip of a leaf and squeeze out some gel. Apply it directly to the affected area. If a fresh plant is unavailable, a cream with aloe vera works well.
  • Speed healing with vitamin E. Puncture a Vitamin E capsule and squeeze out the oil, applying to the affected area to reduce scarring and speed healing.
  • Replace lost moisture on the skin. Applying a moisturizer can restore the moisture balance to the skin. Those products which contain coconut or jojoba oil are best. Apply three times per day.
  • Use witch hazel, it has a cooling property as it evaporates from the skin but doesn’t sting. Apply with a cotton ball three to four times per day.

Best Bully Sticks New Products: Introducing Cohiba’s Beer Bones

At Best Bully Sticks we consider your pets part of our pack and family. Like our beloved pugs Sushi & Espy, we only want to give your furry family member the best in healthy, safe pet products. We are constantly searching for the best of the best so if you have any feedback or product suggestions please let us know. So here is what’s new on the site and in our wag of the woods! Please be sure to check out our barkworthy new products for everything we have added in the last month.

Have a beer with your dog! Now Offering Cohiba’s Beer Bones.

Cohiba’s Beer-Bones started as a little company in the small one-man brewery of AMUK Brewing. They literally RAN to the kitchen with grain that had been soaked in water, mixed it with peanut butter, flour, egg, and the Beer-Bone was born.

Now you and your dog can both kick back and enjoy a cold home-brew after a hard day’s work. Beer-bones are unique dog bones made with REAL beer grains. While you can’t really give our best friend our beer bottle, you can throw them a bone. Seriously, dogs love them and it is a lot of fun to share a “beer” with my best friend after a long day.

Brewing begins with a compilation of grains that are used to create a brew. As with any brewing process, they begin with mixing crushed/milled grain with hot water. After all the water (wort) is drained off, they are left with large amounts of reusable grain, a perfect base for their dog treats!

Cohiba’s Beer Bones contain the following: Spent brewing grains, Peanut Butter, Flour, Eggs

All of their treats are baked to remove moisture and contain NO preservatives. What you see is what you get, no chemicals or additives are used in our delectable treats.

Cohiba’s Beer Bones for Dogs – Small Bones

Appearance: The Alaskan Klee Kai is a smaller version of the Alaskan Husky, and physically resembles the Siberian Husky. This is a northern breed of dog in the Spitz family. Spitz-type dogs have by long, thick, and usually white fur, and pointed ears and muzzles. Their thick and furry tail’s are usually curled over the dog’s back to either side when it is alert or on the move.

This smaller version of the Alaskan Husky has a wedge-shaped head and a stunning masked face, picked ears and a double coat. Back length is slightly longer than their height. The full face mask is what this breed is noted for. Their heads have a moderate stop, and the skull (slightly rounded and broad) and muzzle (well filled in under the eyes) taper toward to the nose forming a broad-based wedge. The lower jaw is strong and lips are closed tightly and usually black. Liver colored lips are seen in dogs with coats that are shades of red with white. The Alaskan Klee Kai teeth need to close in a scissors bite, no over bites or under bites.

Most Alaskan Klee Kai have solid black noses, however there are snow noses (pink streaked) and liver colored noses. Eyes are medium and can be seen in any color or color combination. There are different shaped eyes as well – almond, oval and round.

Alaskan Klee Kai ears are erect and pointing upward, and slightly larger in proportion to the size of the head. The leather is thick from tip to base, with ear tips slightly rounded. These dogs are very sensitive to sounds.

Temperament: Alaskan Klee Kai are highly curious, quick, very agile and active. Very alert dogs, they are extremely loyal, making them a good watch dog despite their smaller size. They are cautious and reserved with strangers and isn’t fussy about unfamiliar situations. They are very affectionate with their family.

Health: The life expectancy for Alaskan Klee Kai  is 14 years. While an amazingly hardy breed there has been concerns expressed about a hereditary bleeding disorder – hereditary FVII deficiency. Other than this disorder, this breed seems to fair very well in the health department.
