Whole Dog News July 2016

 

Summer is in full swing and the abnormal heat here in Northern California has kept the dogs and I inside for most of the day. I have been working on them with their clicker training and focus as well as impulse control.  They are all doing great!   Here are a few videos entitled "3 minute Game Changers" that I was excited to watch in the cool of my air conditioned living room.  LOL https://nbn.absolute-dogs.com/3mgcic   

 

There have been a couple of dog breeders contacting me and requesting more information on CHD (Canine Hip Dysplasia) so I have included a couple of articles I believe you all will find interesting.

Facts & Thoughts on Canine Hip Dysplasia - Things to Ponder

With the incredible accumulation of data spanning over 50 years now, the consensus is Finally emerging that the causes of canine hip dysplasia are only mostly environmental and very little to do with genetics.

It has been found and is common knowledge, that one can mate two parents with OFA rated excellent hips and have offspring that are dysplastic; or mate two dysplastic parents and get pups with normal to excellent hips. How is this possible? Some scientists go as far as to say that hip dysplasia is predominantly a biomechanics process, with genes playing a very limited part.

"Essential Oils In Animal Care -

A Naturopathic Approach"  

This is the  book I co-authored with fellow animal naturopaths and friends in late 2014  - Essential Oils In Animal Care  It has been well received by many. Here is one of the 5 star reviews it has received: 

"I have been using essential oils in my home for several years, both for my health and the health of my cats and dogs. Even though there are a number of books about using essential oils for animals, I found that many times the information presented in those books was a little too general, required a lot of flipping back and forth in search of information, or didn’t provide a lot for me to work with. I found that this book, Essential Oils in Animal Care A Naturopathic Approach, to be different. The information presented in the book is in an easy to understand format. I enjoyed reading and learning about dosage amounts, and how to put the oils into action and use them on animals. I appreciated having a list of suggested oils for various conditions in one place; no flipping back and forth from one section to another as in other books. I really liked that a few simple recipes were given for calming, soothing, and deterring pests. The book also contains useful information including resources, animal chakras, oil frequencies, and a Materia Medica. The book is compact, easy to read and understand, and full of helpful material. This is a great addition to my bookshelf.
