|We Love Pets, Just Like You..|
Happy May Everyone!
May has almost come and gone, my apologies for the late newsletter. I was out of town at the end of April (playing catch up) enjoying time with some of my family. My son Marshall and his girl to be exact. It was a welcome break for all involved! Especially with all that has been happening with Marshall this past almost two years! We enjoyed some fun in the sun at Cape Canaveral, Florida. That's us it the photo above, Marshall & Angela having some fun, Cole enjoying some relaxing time and a very cool sand sculpture out in front of the Ron Jon Shop!
My husband and I truly treasured the time we had with them and of course Cole!
If you didn't already know, PAWFEST HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO OCTOBER as there were supposed to be some pretty crazy storms that day (which we all know never materialized). As far as I know Pawfest has never been rescheduled, it's a rain or shine event. I think it had more to do with the city of Lawrenceville as it was supposed to take place on the Lawrenceville Lawn. So, we'll just have to wait until October!

- It can keep him from running out doors.
- It helps to keep dogs from barking at doors/windows by giving them a quiet place to hang out.
- It can keep your dog out of the way (if he is constantly underfoot).
- With some effort it creates less creeping or crawling than stay because the dog learns his body has to be on the place item.
- It teaches your dog "Calm on Command", which is great for a dog's state of mind. Knowing how to be calm is important.
- It burns energy!

Good Dog! Spotlight: Pet of the Month
Meet Prince Charming!
This is Prince Charming! One of our oldest and best clients, Princey and his brother Picasso have been with us from the beginning. Prince Charming is a toy poodle, and though he may be blind and getting on in years, he doesn't let it slow him down and loves to run ahead on walks!
The Toy Poodle is certainly not known for being shy! This is an outgoing dog who is generally calm and happy but can also be energetic. While its size limits the length of walks, daily walks should be given to ensure good health. The Toy Poodle is a very elegant dog that is squarely built and well proportioned. This breed walks with an air of confidence and is said to walk proudly and with purpose! Anyone who knows Prince Charming certainly knows that he embodies all that a Toy Poodle is known for!
The Truth About Contemporary Remote Collar Dog Training
|SHOCK COLLARS? THE TRUTH ABOUT CONTEMPORARY REMOTE COLLAR DOG TRAINING|
When most people hear the words “Shock” collar it can be both scary and offensive. The “Shock” collars of old are nothing like the contemporary Remote Collars of today.
While many people think that the dog is being “shocked” into submission, the truth is, contemporary trainers, using high end remote collars apply a “pressure” that is neutral, mild and based on the same technology as TENS machines used for physical therapy in humans.
Remote collars do not “burn” a dog’s skin and in fact many quality systems of today are completely water proof!
Low level remote collar training done properly, communicates to your dog with a mild sensation that is not harming to them mentally or physically. It is non-combative in it’s approach which is especially important for reactive dogs. It owners to communicate in a fast and effective manner. In fact, shared training sessions will actually improve your bond with your dog. READ MORE

Chipotle Maple Chicken Thighs
by Midwest Living
We won't mince words: This is juicy, spicy, sticky, glorious barbecued chicken. One of the secrets? Chicken thighs. They cook fast, like breasts, but they have richer flavor and don't dry out. And nutritionally speaking, the two are more similar than you'd think.
