Keeping Your Dog Cool This Summer

Kiddy Pool: One of the most fun ways to help your dog beat the heat is by providing them with a kiddy pool to splash around in. Dogs love water, and having their own pool gives them a chance to cool off and have some fun at the same time. Make sure to fill the pool with fresh water regularly and supervise your pup while they are playing in it. Some dogs may need encouragement or training to feel comfortable in the water, so be patient and provide positive reinforcement as they get used to their new pool. Tractor Supply has 2 sizes!

Remembering Our Fallen Heroes: The White Table and Canines For Heroes

As a combat veteran himself, he understands the struggles that many service members face upon returning home from war. Through Canines For Heroes, he aims to provide support and resources for veterans who may be struggling with mental health issues.

The Benefits of Holistic Care for Your Furry Friends

Another advantage of holistic care for dogs is its focus on natural remedies and therapies. Many traditional veterinary treatments rely on medications that can have harmful side effects or only provide temporary relief from symptoms. In contrast, holistic veterinarians often use natural supplements and therapies that work with your dog’s body to support healing from within. For example, laser, ozone or acupuncture can help reduce pain and inflammation without the need for drugs, while herbal supplements can support your dog’s immune system and promote overall wellness.

Canines For Heroes: Changing Lives One Dog at a Time

The impact of our Canines For Heroes program extends far beyond just the individual handler – these dogs become an integral part of the entire family unit. They provide comfort and security not only to their primary handler but also to loved ones who may be struggling with the effects of trauma or injury.

How to Give Commands to Your Dog

Understanding how to give commands effectively is not just about obedience training; it’s about building a strong foundation for communication and connection with your furry friend. By mastering this skill, you are opening up a world of possibilities for bonding, enrichment, and mutual understanding between you and your dog. The increased positive brain activity for yourself will bring you a greater joy. So take the time to learn how to communicate clearly with your canine companion – the rewards will be well worth it!
