Some Back Yard Fun for Your Pooches!

 

Fun for dogs! 

 Get a plastic wading pool, one of the smaller, cheap ones.

Fill the pool with clean sand (bags of it at Home Depot). 

Bury dog toys, bones and things.  This becomes their official digging and burying spot.

 Core and cut up an apple.  Slice a carrot into 1/3" rounds

and scatter the apple and carrot around the yard for them

to sniff out and find.  At a sporting goods store or online,

buy some hunter's dove, quail, rabbit scent and make little

scent trails for your dogs to follow. 

 This makes your back yard interesting and fun for your

dog.  Thank you to Linda Rogers from Timshell CavaPooChons in Happy Jack, AZ!

Rawhide is very dangerous for your dogs!

Rawhide.

Rawhide is soaked in an ash/lye solution to remove every particle of meat, fat and hair and then further soaked in bleach to remove remaining traces of the ash/lye solution.  Now that the product is no longer food, it no longer has to comply with food regulations.  While the hide is still wet, it is shaped into rawhide chews, and upon drying, it shrinks to approximately 1/4 of its original size.  Furthermore, arsenic-based products are often used as preservatives, and antibiotics and insecticides are added to kill bacteria that also fight against good bacteria in your dog's intestines.  The collagen fibres in the rawhide make it very tough and long-lasting, which makes this chew a popular choice for humans to give to their dogs because it satisfies the dog's natural urge to chew while providing many hours of quiet entertainment.  Sadly, when a dog chews on a rawhide treat, they ingest many harsh chemicals and when your dog swallows a piece of rawhide, that piece can swell up to four times its size inside your dog's stomach, which can cause anything from mild to severe gastric blockages that could become life threatening and require surgery.  While we are at it, please note that Pig's Ears and Hoof Treats are on the 'no' list as well. and should be especially avoided.   Pig's Ears are processed and preserved with unhealthy chemicals that discerning dog guardians will not want to feed their dogs.  Hoof Treats are not 'natural' as indicated and after processing these treats retain little if any of their natural qualities.  Hoof treats are treated with insecticides, lead, bleach, arsenic based products and antibiotics to kill bacteria which can harm the good bacteria in your dog's intestines.  Hooves can cause preforation or blockages in  your dog's intestines.

Coming next . . . Probiotics for your puppy and dog, how many of you use them and can you share your thoughts about them?

Recently I was asked by a Cavachon Owner whose male is 5-6 months old, if anyone else's pup has recently been neutered and what the experiences have been like?  Did anyone's pup from the Dec 17th Cavachon litter recently go through neutering?  Thanks for sharing!  Melanie McCarthyContinue

Tear Stains

I switched Poppleton to canned food and now he has tear stains.   He had been on kibble his whole life (all two years) and was never a great eater.    He loves the canned and I hate to switch him back.    Continue

8/17/14 Need Help Finding Right Adult Dog Food for My Cavachon. . . she is a very picky eater!Question from Eric D. in Houston:I am still trying to find an adult grain free dry dog food for Phoebe that she would eagerly embrace.  I also want one that has a protein level of 30 or less. Perhaps some of the other Cavachon owners use a brand these dogs really like. Also, we feed Phoebe two small meals twice a day. Maybe once a day is enough?Your thoughts?Continue

House Breaking

Started by Katie in Cava-Poo-Chon Forum. Last reply by Melanie McCarthy Aug 18. 16 Replies

I am going crazy. This little dog is the hardest to potty train I've ever had. He is just days shy of being 3 months old, and I swear, he holds it while he's outside with our other dog and then eliminates--on the kitchen floor, rugs or inside his crate, as soon as he's let back in. My labradoodle has never had these problems. Please help. I have no idea what to do. We limit the food and water intake to twice a day, don't leave either of those out all day and give the dogs plenty of time outside. There is a specific place the dogs eliminate, except this little cavapoochon puppy chooses the stone deck (when he does eliminate outside) rather than the cedar chip corner. I'm going mad.Thanks--KatieContinue

Murray at 12 weeks

Started by Nancy Hastings in Cavachon Forum. Last reply by Melanie McCarthy Jun 28. 3 Replies

He is delightful. Rarely has an accident anymore. Goes to his crate at about 9 PM and is patiently waiting at the door for me at 6 AM, we don't even hear him before then. Sometimes he uses his puppy bathroom, sometimes it's dry. I take him our right away and he always does his business. I take him out now about every two hours. His vet apt. this week was great. Has had 2 sets of shots, heart worm and flea and tic treatment. He now weighs 7.7 lbs.  Goes into his carry crate without problems. I am using Chet Womach's Hands Off training and it works.Continue

"I use it. It works. Murray hates the taste and won't go near it. Especially good on carpet edges, which are his favorite "seek and destroy"."
