Happy May!
May includes National Pet Month, Pet Cancer Awareness Month, Microchip Your Pet Month and May 18-24 is Dog Bite Prevention Week. Did you know it can cost as little as $25 to microchip your pet? A simple injection that that could be life saving. The microchip holds all your information from your pet’s name to your phone number and address. Many pets go missing each year that could have found a way home if only they had a microchip. When a pet goes missing and someone finds the pet they can simply take the pet to most vets or shelters to have them scanned for a microchip. If chipped the scanner will bring up the microchip number so they can see who the pet is registered to and can contact the owner immediately. Run don’t walk to the nearest vet, shelter or low cost pet clinic to have your pet microchipped today!
National Dog Bite Prevention week is this month. Most dog bites are preventable. Get educated on the signals that most dogs display before they bite. Teach your children these signals but always supervise young children around your dog or any other. Learn more here…
And last but not least we welcome into our family our first Granddog! My oldest son recently adopted a Rat Terrier puppy named Loki. Two weeks into living with my son and Loki is already exhibiting plenty of exuberant puppy play biting. We facetimed each other last night as they were a bit beside themselves with his piranha like behavior. My advice? A few well timed techniques and lots of patience, persistence, follow through and consistency. Ahh  the joys of parenthood!
If you have a new dog or puppy and need some help give me a call. It would be my pleasure to be of service.

Warm regards,

7 Stress Signals Dogs May Offer Prior to a Bite
Teach Your Children (And Your Dog) Well, 7 Stress Signals Dogs May Offer Prior to a Bite
By Terie Hansen
Dogs can and do bite.  In the US alone 850,000 people seek medical attention for dog bites annually. When children are bitten it is usually a dog they know (theirs, neighbors, friends). While biting is usually a last resort type of communication for most dogs, it is just that, a way of communicating “I am afraid” or “I don’t like what you are doing to or around me”.  Usually a dog offers another form of communication previous to a bite. Most adults and definitely children either don’t pick up on these signals or ignore them.
While I certainly don’t believe it is ok for a dog to bite I also don’t believe the responsibility falls soley on the dog in any given situation.   Read more here
Rescue Group of the Month
We are a small, non-profit rescue located outside of the Atlanta metro area. We began several years ago as a Mom and Pop organization as a foster agent. We lost our wonderful Pop, Jim, in December 2008. He loved our Jacks and worked tirelessly day and night to take care of the dogs. Now Mama Donna and a handful of volunteers are running the rescue … and holding down regular jobs. As you might imagine, this is a huge undertaking, but these precious dogs are worth saving and re-homing.  Read more here.
