Hypothermia and Frostbite: Winter Weather Dangers for Your Dog

Hypothermia and Frostbite: Winter Weather Dangers for Your Dog | Raise train and care for your dog | Scoop.it
The coming of this winter has been a rather rude awakening.
Keith Wheeler's insight:

Dogs are not wild animals.  They've been living alongside man for thousands of years.  First in our caves, then our mud huts, wooden shacks and these days in our centrally heated homes.  Long periods outside in winter affects them in the same way it affects us.

Dogs are called "man's best friend" for a reason. They are often the first ones to greet you after a long day and the last ones to think that you could possibly have any flaws.
Keith Wheeler's insight:

So many to choose from.  I generally favour people getting their dogs from rescue centres.  However, this does mean that in addition to the considerations raised in this article, there may be experiences in the dogs past that you might be unaware of.  Plenty to mull over here, and almost certainly some points that you had not even thought of!

Summer is a fun time for you and your pet, but it also brings its share of dangers. Exposing your dog to excessive sun and heat can lead to sunburned skin or.
Keith Wheeler's insight:

I cringe when I see people walking their dog past my house during the summer.  On hot days (comparatively few in the UK) the rough tarmac  can be too hot for me to walk on barefoot.  The humans have shoes to insulate them from this.  Their dogs have no such respite.

Why is grooming so important for my dog? - Latest Pet News

Why is grooming so important for my dog? - Latest Pet News | Raise train and care for your dog | Scoop.it
Just as people need to bathe regularly, the same is true for dogs. (Why is grooming so important for my dog? http://t.co/Tly0r4JgA9)
Keith Wheeler's insight:

I agree with all this, but shouldn't they also have mentioned your dog's nails?  Regular walks on hard surfaces go a long way to keep them short, but if your usual walks are over softer terrain this may not be enough.  If you do attempt this task yourself be sure to avoid the "quick".  Also use a rotary grinder which is more controllable than clippers and won't crush the nail as you cut.

Cutting Your Labrador Retrievers Nails

Cutting Your Labrador Retrievers Nails | Raise train and care for your dog | Scoop.it
When cutting your Labrador Retriever nails or just about any dogs’ nails, one must know these things right. One mistake and it might end up wrong and would cause a not so pleasant experience for your dog.
Keith Wheeler's insight:

Often ignored for too long, but it does need doing.  Mind you, one mistake and your dog won't forget it.  Personally I prefer the battery powered rotary grinders that are available.  These give you more control and don't crush the nails as most cutters do.

Many dogs are very sensitive about having their feet handled, so if you have a young puppy it's best to get them used to this very early.
