Summer Pet Tips

We hope everyone is enjoying the start of the summer. The upcoming months should be filled with vacation, relaxing, and enjoying summer holidays.  As we continue to shift our mindsets towards the summer, we want to take this time to share some summer pet tips. These tips were provided by professionals of midday dog walking in Arlington VA.

  • Never, never, never leave your pet alone in your car. Not only is it illegal, it’s extremely unsafe for your pet. Sadly, we see this happen way too often.
  • Limit their time in the heat. If it’s too hot outside for you, it’s also likely too hot for your pet. Avoid too much running an exercise on really hot days.
  • Check for ticks. Whenever your pet plays in a grassy or wooded area, it’s important check for any ticks.

Dog Training Tips

Dog training can be a tough task. Puppies aren’t always great learners, and can often cause a lot of stress. That’s why we want to help make training easier for you. Here are some helpful tips provided by an expert with pet care franchise opportunities in Houston TX.

  • Consistency is the key. Make sure everyone in your family or house is being consistent with how you train. Make sure commands such as “down” or “off” aren’t confusing the dog when he jumps up.
  • Listen and watch. Dogs will often give off cues when they’re uncomfortable or scared. When new people come around, give your dog time to gradually warm up to them.
  • Reinforcement is great. Don’t only punish your dog. Make sure they know when they do something correctly by giving them treats or affection.

Not Just for the Social

I always thought that my dog was not a good candidate for dog boarding in Austin TX because he does not enjoy being around other dogs. Contrary to what you might think, dog boarding is great for social dogs and those who prefer the company of people or just like to be left alone. My dog spent the majority of his time during his boarding stay in his suite, getting lots of love from the staff and playing with his favorite toys. When I came to pick him up after a weekend away he was in great spirits!

Deshedding Treatment

I love my dog to death, but he sheds more than any animal I’ve ever met! I brush him almost every day, and still there is hair everywhere. I don’t mind vacuuming behind him for the most part, but during the hot summer months it gets out of hand. That’s why I found dog grooming in Socorro TX. I take him in about once a month for a de-shedding treatment and it makes a world of difference in his coat and the amount of fur I find around our house!

Boarding Two Dogs at Once

I was a little bit nervous about boarding my dogs for the first time. They are very bonded to each other and I didn’t want them to get split up once they got there. Thankfully, pet boarding in Towson MD¬†assured me that they could stay in the same suite and share a bed, and also said that they would remain in the same playgroup even though they are different sizes. To my surprise, when I went to pick them up, the staff told me that they had fun together but also made a lot of new friends on their own!
