Well summer is officially here! What are your summer plans and goals? Mine are to spend more time with family, friends and my pets. I love the cool morning air. It’s the best time to get out and walk with my dog. It’s my zen time. We have already taken a few trips to Stone Mountain and hiked the trails with our dog Cole and some of her friends. She loves it! New sights and smells are everywhere, and swimming! We plan to do more of it too. I also like going to places where my dog is welcome… parks, restaurants and stores. Whatever your plans include your pets wherever you can. And let me know if you have some other ideas I’d love to hear them.

Gwinnett County Jail Dogs Program
Did you know that dogs in shelters and here at the jail become institutionalized after a while just like human inmates? It’s is important for shelter animals, as well as your own, to get a change of scenery and different forms of stimulation every now and then. Here at the jail we play in kiddie pools with the dogs on hot days, put wet food in Kongs and freeze them, have volunteer dog walkers take them to the park for a couple hours, have them play with puzzle food dishes, as well as a variety of other things to do or best to keep our 18 Jail Dogs from suffering from institutionalization.
We can help bring peace to your home.

Fourth of July: Party
or Panic for Your Dog?
Many dog owners experience the chaos that is the fourth of July with their dogs. While there are certainly dogs that are sensitive to trains, thunderstorms and other sounds, even the calmest of dogs can experience distress or anxiety over the sound of fireworks (especially if they are being shot off at the neighbors house!). Different dogs react differently to these sounds depending on their personal stress level. Some will shiver and shake, some will bark or howl and some can become destructive or even try to escape the home or yard if left alone
Your Pet's First Massage Session
Savi Pet Massage
Pet owners often ask me what they should expect during their pet’s first massage session; where to set-up, what I need, etc. Although each session is unique, I will run through some key points for your pet’s first massage session.
First, the most important part of my business is that I am mobile and the massage takes place in your home. This is key because this offers your dog the most comfortable, relaxing, and beneficial massage session possible. Another important part of how I have my massage sessions set-up is that, unlike some massage therapist I do not charge by the hour, a session is a session, no matter how long or short it may be. I let the pet determine how long our session needs to be, after all these sessions are about them!

Why Does My Dog Bark on Everything?
By Terie Hansen
Dogs bark for many reasons. They might see something that excites them or frightens them. They may be bored, hungry, need to potty or want to play or get your attention. Whatever the reason is, barking is a natural way for a dog to communicate. However, when a dog barks at everything that moves or barks incessantly and won’t stop even when told to by their owner there is something wrong. Wrong as in, they are not getting enough exercise or mental stimulation
