Mud and water will keep the fleas away. Nothing works better than daily swim in the river, lake or any water pond.
Care for your dog
As the owner, proper grooming and bathing is your responsibility. But there is more to caring for your dog than simple bathing, flea viles are very good i use Doctor Harry's Advantage you can get them in 3 or 6 packs, well worth it, espcially if you are around other dogs/pups. Change & wash bedding is important too.
Boarding Kennels for your dog, can be a good place for you & your dog more info on this page Dog care
Exercising your dog
I'm telling you
Dogs need daily exercise to prevent dog problems and improve dog health.
Daily exercise with your dog has many benifits, but yet again depends on the size of your dog and how much exercise it requires. My puppy bull mastiff only needs minamial exercise as in 10-15 mins a day is more than enough, where as a kelpie or cattle sort of dogs like alot of exercise. You can make it fun with for all the family as a day at the park & even a picnic. Perth has alot of nice spots north & south of the river. The swan river is excellent in most parts. Around your local area you will find walk-ways, paths,parks & of course the dog beaches. You get to go out in the fresh air & they will love a ride in the car.
I'm worth it
Dogs and vets bills
How much do do you love your pet and how much would you be willing to pay to save their life? This is of course your decision, but just a consult can be up to $88.00. I have RSPCA insurance, as the money goes to helping other pets, & i recieve up to 80% back off my vet bills. A friend recently had her dog operated on & it cost over $2000.00. Its a alot of money, but once again it depends on what you personally can afford, but i know & have the peace of mind if anything does happen to happen my beloved gypsy, pictured through out this site, little brown pupppy bull mastiff x char pai.
REWARDS & DISCIPLINE
Hold a tasty treat above the dogs nose to attract its attention, this works best when the dog is hungry.
Physical rewards are importantduring training, so praise the dog by giving it long strokes along the body.
As an incentive, show the dog its favourite toy, you will soon discover which toys it likes the best.
Is your dog chewing trickle systems in your garden or eating the risers & sparayers off your garden beds ??????? A way to stop this is to put a mixture of tabasco sauce and chilli, usung a pasrty brush you are able to apply it thinly, now your dog will usually only do it once, mine did.... it will distarct them from going their again in a hurry, of course dont jam up the hole you wont need much, or you could use the good old natural way being Cittronella, they hate the smell of that too. Its worked for me as they seem to be very tempting to a little puppy the chewing method as well as beating the dogs boredom. Give it a try & see how you go. Their is another way too & that is to get an old wire coat hanger, bending it around the riser into the ground so it covers the riser & the sprayer all in one go, they actually cant get thier mouth into now in order for them to chew it to bits. Usually in time they will grow out of it.
