Ever been to a chiropractor – with your dog?
 
Many of us have been to specialists when we throw our backs out, can’t turn our necks normally, or are limping around due to knee pain. We can go to primary care physicians, acupuncturists, chiropractors and many other types of specialists to help us with our injuries, aches and pains. But what about our dogs?

Do you know the signs of heatstroke in your dog?
 
Summer is the time of year when many people think of being more active. However, when it comes to our dogs, we need to be careful about not being too active in the summer heat. Walks, hikes, strenuous play, and other high energy activities are best done in the mornings and evenings when it’s cooler. Dogs tend to gravitate toward the shade – or right in front of a fan or air conditioning vent – when it’s hot. For good reason, since they don’t cool down as easily as we do. If your dog is telling you that this mid-day hike in the hot sun is too much, listen to her!

Dog training tip – timing is everything!

You’ve heard the saying “timing is everything” right? When we think of timing in regard to dog training, we often think of the timing of the consequences to our dog’s actions. The reward should happen immediately, otherwise your dog won’t associate the reward with the behavior you are trying to reinforce. But that’s not what I am referring to here.

Hiking with your dog? Keep an eye out for ticks
 
Summer is great for getting out and doing more hiking, camping and other outdoor activities with your dogs. But it also is a time to be careful about things like mosquito bites, heatstroke or ticks. If you have your dog out in wooded areas or tall grass, you should check your dog over for ticks afterward. While Colorado does not have as much trouble with ticks as some areas of the country, we do still have ticks so it’s worth taking a few minutes to check your dog over after a hike or outing.
