Dog Bite Prevention Week

It's nearing the end of the week dedicated to National Dog Bite Prevention, but it's worth posting several times a year to prevent any dog bite! If you'd like a professional Dog Trainer and Behaviorist to help you with your dog please visit our well known, trusted and respected member, Kathrine Breeden at her website: How to teach your kids to approach unfamiliar dogs safely Cloud 9 Pet Sitting

It is important for adults to teach children how to safely approach an unfamiliar dog and how to protect themselves if they come in contact with an unfriendly dog.

According to the Center of Disease Control, 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year, many of these involving children, with dog bite related injuries highest in 5-9 year old children. It is important to teach children how to approach dogs to keep children safe, to keep your pets happy, and to avoid becoming one of those statistics.

National "Be Kind To Animals" Week 2015

NATIONAL "BE KIND TO ANIMALS" WEEK!  What will you do this week to help be kind to an animal?

Just yesterday I received a phone call from a young lady who had intervened an attack on a small bird from neighborhood cats. There were many of them, attacking this small, helpless, brown bird. Just your average bird you see every day flying in the sky.
The young lady was frantic on the phone and didn't know what to do with this poor little bird. She asked me for help and asked me questions as to what she could do to help him.
I offered her some tips, asked her if she thought she could in the very least get the little bird into a small carrier and out of the yard where it would be in danger. She did have a pet carrier and was able to get the bird into it after gently picking him up from under a bush. She placed a light cloth cover over the carrier and set it in a quite room so the bird could de-stress from what just happened. Certainly it had to have been in shock.
