Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care
We Love Pets, Just Like You..
Happy November!
Hi everyone and Happy November! Whoo!
There is a chill in the air for sure now. Bye, bye Indian summer. I was rather enjoying the extended warmth. As we move into the cooler months we need to remember our pets and take care to protect them from the elements. In this newsletter you will find an article that gives you some tips on how to do just that. This month is Pet Cancer Awareness Month ,  for signs and symptom of pet cancer click here . It is also Adopt a Senior Pet Month , so if you are thinking of adopting a pet why not choose a senior pet?! Older dogs usually come trained and understand at least the basic commands. Older pets are usually calmer and make great snuggle buddies.
Have you heard of Pet Flipping? This is where someone (insert criminal here) steals someone's pet either from their yard or vehicle and “flips” or sells it to someone else. Really! This happens! I was working with a training client and a young man drove up asking if we had seen someone with his new puppy, a bull terrier. It had just been stolen out of his car. Below you’ll see an article by Tori at Doolittle’s Dog house on how to minimize the chances of your dog falling victim to this trend.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and let me know if I can be of service to you or your friends and family as it would be my pleasure to do so.
Hugs and Happy Tails,
Terie & Cole

5 Simple Tips for Protecting
Pets in Cold Weather

Protecting pets in cold weather is a must. As cold weather begins to be the norm in the coming months, it’s time to think about your pets. There are steps you can take to protect them from the cold as well as keep them comfortable whether on a walk or even inside your home. 

Humidify for comfort. Cold temperatures are accompanied by dry air which can affect your pet in many ways. Dry throats, static electricity, difficulty breathing and dry itchy skin can indicate that a humidifier is needed. Fish oil supplements can also be helpful for your cat or dog’s skin and coat. Check with your vet for dosage.

Pet-Flipping on the Rise
Dog Owners Beware!
By Tori Levitt, Dolittle's Doghouse 
A disturbing new trend—“pet flipping”—has been getting a lot of attention lately.
Pet flipping involves a criminal picking up a pet, either by stealing him or claiming to be the parent of a missing pet, and then selling the animal for a profit.
According to Time, pet flipping is on the rise in many cities, most notably Kansas City, St. Louis and Indianapolis. (Though this can happen anywhere, so please beware!)
The “target” dogs are often purebred and expensive breeds. In March, an Indianapolis man was arrested after a three-month investigation found he had been stealing dogs for years, mostly purebred German Shepherds, Rottweilers and Pit Bulls. “Many of these pets are kept in deplorable conditions until they can be “flipped” (sold)—according to Dawn Contos, of Indianapolis Animal Care and Control.
