Dog Care 101 #223: Choosing a Pet Sitter

BBS Dog Care 101 - Choosing a Dog SitterSummer is prime time for vacation but sadly some dog owners don’t have the option of bringing their four-legged friends along. However, just because Fido can’t tag along doesn’t mean he can’t have fun at home while you’re away! BestBullySticks recommends owners look into getting a pet sitter as an alternative to dropping their pup off at the kennel.

Choosing between leaving your pup with a pet sitter or dropping him/her off at the kennel depends on a few key things. For instance, if your dog doesn’t play well with others, you’re better off finding a pet sitter. The one on one attention from a pet sitter can make all the difference to a dog when its owner is away. Also, leaving your dog in a familiar environment adds an extra level of comfort while their owner is away.

While finding the right pet sitter can sometimes be a challenge, we’ve assembled a handy list of tips and strategies to help ease the stress on your dog while you’re away.

Planning Ahead

First things first — make a list of important items your dog needs. At the very least, your list should include a leash, bags for waste, food, toys, medications, emergency phone numbers and plenty of bully sticks! Collect these items and set them aside for your pet sitter.

Keeping these items on hand will give a pet sitter more time to spend with your dog and less time looking for things he/she needs.

Selecting Your Dog Sitter

It’s important to find an individual you’re comfortable leaving with your dog and in your home. If possible, take the time to meet a few potential candidates for the job to make sure you find the right one. If you have a pet savvy friend or family member who is willing to watch your dog don’t hesitate to ask them. Dogs are often more comfortable with friendly faces visiting them at home than strangers. Picking someone your dog knows may have a big impact on their comfort level. read more…

BBS Training Tip #10: Canine Body Language

Training Tips from BBSTraining your dog can be exercise in patience. Then again, it doesn’t have to be! Dogs are incredibly expressive creatures and if you know what to look out for, you’ll be amazed by how much your dog is telling you — a lot of times we’re just not speaking the same language. There are consistent bodily expressions all dogs show. And lucky for us, this doggie dialect isn’t too hard to pick up! If you aren’t already, BestBullySticks will have you talking with your dog in no time.

Speaking Dog

There’s a whole lot to cover when it comes to canine body language. Your dog uses nearly every part of its body to express feelings and emotions – so instead of trying to describe specific situations, we’ll focus on key expressive behaviors your dog uses to communicate. This way you will be better prepared to figure out what a dog is trying to tell you at any given moment. You’ll be surprised just how much your pup can say with their furry faces and wagging tails!

Eye Contact

Dogs seldom make eye contact with each other. Catching a direct gaze from another dog is usually a sign of aggression. However, for people, this isn’t always the case. If your dog has a relaxed facial expression and he keeps making eye contact, chances are he’s just looking for some attention.

If a dog holds a tense fixed gaze he probably doesn’t want much to do with you. This type of eye contact is usually regarded as a sort of “first warning” by other dogs. The same goes for people, too. read more…

BBS Rescue Spotlight: PAWS New England

When you live in an area with high rates of pet overpopulation, pet euthanasia, and little to no funding for Animal Control organizations or rescues, what do you do? Most likely, you live in the Southern United States. Unfortunately, many Southern states simply do not have the resources to help abandoned, abused and neglected dogs. This fact, although sad, has been highly motivating for three women: Traci Wood, Kelly Parker and Joanne Hutchinson. After being heartbroken for these dogs, these three women, meeting through adoption forums, founded PAWS New England. The goal of this great organization is to work with Southern Animal Rescues to rehabilitate, foster locally and then adopt dogs out to families in the Northeast. To read more about this amazing rescue, read our conversation with Joanne Hutchinson below!

When & Why did you start?
Approx 7 years ago, Kelly and I met through a third party who was doing small rescues (one dog at a time) taking a dog from the Tipton County Shelter in TN, having the vetting done and then sending the dog to New England.  We wanted a more formal and organization group and Paws New England was born.  Once we obtained our 501c3 status, we were off to the races.  Since that time we have rescued and placed approximately 5,000 dogs both from the Tipton County Animal Shelter and from Julie Adams who is a one woman rescue in Oran Missouri – there is no ACO in her area and thus people have decided that when they want to give up their dog rather than shoot them, they bring them to her house and leave them, whether she’s there or not; it’s nothing for her to come home and find dogs tied to her mail post or in boxes in her driveway. read more…

Dog Care 101 #222: Grooming for Summer

Summer Grooming Tips from BBSGrooming is an important part of responsible pet ownership — especially during the summer months. As the heat rises, so do the risks of dehydration and heat stroke. If you’ve got a long haired breed — one with a particularly thick undercoat — BestBullySticks suggests looking into grooming as a way to help your dog cope with the heat and stay happy.

Necessity

At the end of the day, haircuts aren’t necessary for dogs. Between regular brushing and bathing, your dog shouldn’t have any issues making it through the summer. We carry a wide array of all-natural grooming products sure to bring your dog some relief. Long haired breeds and those with thick undercoats generally have more difficulty dealing with the heat. However, as a rule of thumb, these breeds shouldn’t be kept outdoors for long periods of time during hotter months.

Contrary to what many think, your dog’s coat actually acts as an insulator shielding them from the hot sun. Trimming a dog’s coat only serves to increase their exposure to the sun and may even lend itself to an increased chance of dehydration and heatstroke. Dogs have little to no skin pigment needed to combat the sun’s harsh UV rays. A healthy coat of fur is their only line of defense against the sun.

Brushing Tips from BBS

Seasonal Shedding

Both the Spring and Fall bring about an increase in shedding. While it might seem like there’s no end in sight for some dogs and their shedding habits, there is one way to drastically reduce the amount of hair strewn about your home — regular brushing. A steady grooming routine will make your dog a whole lot happier and make your life easier!

Many times a bit of extra brushing and bathing is all that’s needed to increase your dog’s comfort level during the summer. The removal of dead hair and skin will make their coat more breathable and easier to cool off. Some dogs require daily brushing while others may only need it weekly. If you still see tons of hair laying around, chances are you need to keep brushing! read more…
