Homework and a Week Off

You're homework for this week is to share with everyone three things you love about your dog, and 1 thing you'd like to work on.  You get an extra week for this one since next week is our off week.  Be specific about the thing you'd like to work on, and I'll spend my "off week" giving everyone tips on those behaviors or problems that each of you would like to work on.

Don't forget the training challenge for this month!

Happy Training!

Homework - Dental Health Month

Did you know that it's Pet Dental Health Month?
What are you doing to care for your pet's teeth?

Chewing and rinsing are good, but brushing is the best way to take care of your pet's teeth, and should be done daily to achieve the greatest benefit.  Good oral care is extremely important for your pet's health, and prevents many health problems that can result from an unhealthy mouth.

Doggy breath isn't "normal" if your dog has breath you should investigate the cause with your veterinarian. 

Your homework this week, is to commit to brushing your pet's teeth daily.  Remember to use a toothpaste made for dogs!  There are also wipes and gels available to make your job easier.  Share your experience with us in a comment below!

Don't forget MVVHC's dental open houses!

Wednesday February 22nd 4-6pm in North Logan
Saturday February 25th 10am-12pm in Providence

Come in to have a technician assess your pet's teeth and make recommendations for their oral health for free!
