Happy October! Autumn is here, Halloween is closing in quickly. My favorite holiday! No stress, just fun. Carving pumpkins, deciding on a costume, picking through the candy the kids brought home. I have always loved Halloween. When my kids were little, we created a lot of homemade costumes. Some of the best…An Outhouse, a Refrigerator, a Washing Machine, A Knight on horseback and the usual witches, vampires, ghouls and goblins. I love the creativity of it. I also liked trick or treating with my kids (which I did up until just a couple years ago) many times donning a costume myself just for fun(and a bit of candy). Now my youngest is 19, so I am left to dress up the dog and hand out candy to the neighbor kids, which I must admit, is not near as fun as dressing up and hanging out with my kids. Not that I am ready to be a grandparent, but I’m looking forward to one day trick or treating with the grandkids. I’ll probably still dress up the dog though!

Why Is It Important to Keep
Your Pet's Nails Trimmed?
Owner of Strutt your Mutt Grooming
There are many different reasons to keep your pets nails trimmed. For example, if your dog’s nails get too long, they can break, which can be painful and sometimes results in infection. Long nails can also cause an irregular gait or walk that leads to skeletal damage.
Despite the importance of keeping your pets nails trimmed to a safe length, many people can’t or don’t like to trim their dog’s nails. It can be a daunting and scary task to tackle. It’s a task that can make both people and the animal anxious. How do you know exactly where to cut the nail? What if you trim the nail too close and cut the sensitive quick?
We can help bring peace to your home.
At Good Dog! Coaching , we teach you how to communicate to your dog the positive behaviors you want from him. Good Dog! Coaching is a proud member of APDT – Association of Professional Dog Trainers.

Is Your Dog at Risk for
Death by Fungus?
By Terie Hansen
Lurking in your yard, in your mulch no less could be a naturally occurring fungus that readily infects dogs, cats and people and can be deadly if not caught early. Blastomycosis is a yeastlike fungal infection caused by Blastomyces dermatitidis.
This organism is commonly found in decaying wood and soil, usually near bodies of fresh water. The infection usually starts out in the lungs but can invade many tissues throughout the body even causing blindness via optic lesions. Read more here.

The Top 6 Nutrients Your Dog Needs
Nutrients are substances obtained from food and used by an animal as a source of energy and as part of the metabolic machinery necessary for maintenance and growth. Barring any special needs, illness-related deficiencies or instructions from your vet, your pets should be able to get all the nutrients they need from high-quality commercial pet foods, which are formulated with these special standards in mind.
