Shelter Dogs Lives Matter!

Standard

This is an excellent article about talented dogs sitting in shelters. This couple in the US are pulling dogs from shelters and training them for careers working with U.S. Marshalls, FEMA Search and Rescue, police departments, and U.S. Embassies.

Shelter-Dogs-Get-Second-Chance

 

“We believe in the value of all shelter dogs, we see in our fields that we started in there was a lot of breeding and buying of dogs and you see our shelters full of dogs that have just the same amount of talent.”

They’re searching out shelter dogs with high energy that maybe aren’t perfect pets, but could take on another canine career.
Tim Matthews says, “The dogs that I find that are so high drive sometimes are on the euthanasia list, they’ve been out to a home, back into the shelter, and then I get them and they test good and out the door they go.”

New Terminal for Pets Planned for JFK – ARK

Standard

We continue to spend more and more money on our pets as we try to make them as comfortable and happy as possible.  In this respect, JFK International Airport in NY is building a new terminal specifically for pets that need to travel by air.  Approximately 70,000 animals travel through JFK annually (yes, you read that right). The new terminal, called ARK, will feature a 20,000-square-foot dog and cat “resort”. The space will have a bone-shaped splash pool and flat screen TVs for dogs, climbing trees in a feline-focused Cat Adventure Jungle, massage therapy and paw pedicures for both, and webcams so owners can check in on four-legged friends from afar. There will also be 48 horse stalls, space for cattle and an aviary.

All animals will have access to a 24-hour clinic run by Cornell University veterinary hospital. Overnight accommodations, particularly in the dog and cat resort, are predicted to reach $100 a night.

JFK Airport New Terminal for Pets (ARK)

While the pets that get a chance to enjoy the facilities at JFK’s ARK, don’t forget that there are homeless dogs, cats and companion animals that need our help.  ShopForPuppy.com is dedicated to helping less fortunate pets through our generous donation program, where we donate a portion from each sale to Rescue and Shelters in the US.  We appreciate your support.

Kittywalk-Lawn-Pet-Enclosure-ad-700px

“My two cats love the Kittywalk Lawn Pet Enclosure.  They are not declawed, but they have not tried to climb out or destroy the netting.  I don’t let them in the Kittywalk unattended, but it is so nice to relax outdoors and watch them sniffing and enjoying the fresh air.  They tried to push at the netting in the beginning, but they were not able to get out and the netting is still in great shape.”

Mutt Mitt Dog Waste Pick-Up Bags

Standard

The Mutt Mitt Dog Waste Pick-Up Bags are the best poop bags on the market! Unlike the flimsy bags sold in rolls, the Mutt Mitt bags are much larger and heavier. The larger size will make cleaning up after XL sized dogs much easier since they hold more. With the 2-ply construction, there is less risk of your finger accidentally puncturing a hole in the bag.

Mutt-Mitt-Poop-Pick-Up-Bags

Picking up after your dog is as easy as 1-2-3! Keep your hands clean, even when picking up a large mess.

Mutt-Mitt-Poop-Pick-Up-Bags

The Mutt Mitt makes cleaning up after your dog as easy as 1-2-3!

The Mutt Mitt bags are also getting great reviews from everyone who tries them.  They are especially useful to those of us with larger and giant breeds.  The bags are 100% biodegradable, so you can be assured you are being friendly to the environment when using them to clean up.  It is a known fact that dog waste can pollute our creeks and streams, so cleaning up after your dog by using the Mutt Mitt is the best thing you can do for the environment.

“I have Mastiffs, and the flimsy bags you can buy at the chain pet stores just don’t cut it.  The Mutt Mitt bags are tall enough that your hand doesn’t stand a chance of getting into the mess.  Also, the bags are thicker than the flimsy bags in the little rolls.  You won’t feel the mess, and you won’t feel like there is a chance one of your fingers will accidentally pop through.  I love these bags!”  ~ Sheila Blake, Santa Rosa, CA

Outward Hound Outdoor Agility Starter Kit

If you think you want to start training your dog in Agility, there is no better way to start than in your own backyard!  It is a simple and fun way to connect with your dog.

When I first got Azaan, a Boerboel (aka South African Mastiff), I was trying to teach her obedience so that we could compete in rally and obedience trials.  She would get bored, and often lose focus.  That’s when I decided to enroll her in some agility classes to try to bring the fun back into learning, focusing on the handler, and following my direction.  It worked!  While she absolutely hated practicing obedience routines, her eyes lit up when we practiced agility.  The agility training translated well into obedience competition, and she and I have earned some titles and plan to compete and earn more!
