Happy Thanksgiving!

I’ll admit it, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  I mean, how can it not be with the while family together and delicious food all around?  I think this might also be my dog’s favorite holiday as she gets lots of pets from family members while she waits patiently for people to drop food on the floor or turkey to be unattended so she can help herself to a leg (ok, she wouldn’t do that….).

However, for many dogs Thanksgiving can be a stressful event with people coming in and out of the house, children running around, and extra table scraps being tossed their way thus causing stomach issues.  Here are some tips to help you and your furry friend out this holiday season.

Thanksgiving 2013

1) Take a walk before guests arrive.  This will help burn off some extra energy and make your dog a little more relaxed when people show up.

2) Practice ‘Place’   Having your dog go to his bed keeps him from being under foot.

3) Put your dog in a crate or shut them in a different room and give them a toy such a Kong to chew on.  This will help them feel more relaxed and prevent them from running away when the door is opened.

4) Do not feed your dog table scraps.  If your dog is not used to this, it can cause an upset stomach or diarrhea.  Most definitely do not feed them turkey bones.

5) Have extra water available to your dog throughout the day.  This is an exciting day and your dog may get thirsty.

 

Most importantly, have a Happy Thanksgiving!

The Perfect Santa Paws Picture

RavenSantaSince reading my last post I know that you have all marked your calendars to get your dog’s picture taken with Santa Paws, but HOW do you get your pet to sit a calmly as Raven did? Well, here are a couple of tips that should help you have the perfect picture with Santa.

First of all, exercise your dog before going to your photo session. Take them for a long walk or play a game of fetch. By using up some of its energy your dog will be able to listen better in a new environment full of distractions.

Give your dog a potty break before your photo session. You don’t want Fido to put himself at the top of Santa’s naughty list because he couldn’t hold it any longer.

Allow your dog to sniff and greet before you take the photo. From the dog’s perspective Santa looks a little odd.

The best way to get the perfect puppy picture with Mr. Paws it us utilize your dogs obedience. Put your dog in a ‘sit/stay’ or ‘down/stay’ by Santa so you can easily get out of the picture.

Ask the photographer which way they want your dog to look, then move to that area. Your dog’s head will follow you. You can also use treats or toys to keep their attention.

Once the photo shoot is done, reward your dog!

If you need help getting Fido ready for his picture with Santa Paws, or any other photo session please contact us at Good Dog Camp.
