Aggressive or Reactive?

Do you think your dog is aggressive when they see another dog and you’re afraid to take them out in public? They may just be “reactive.” Our 4-week Reactive Dog class is the class for you. Skills will be taught to create an environment for you and your dog that makes it a pleasure to take them for a walk. The last class will be a field trip to Lake Ella where your dog will encounter ducks, geese, other dogs, many people, musicians, joggers, and more. You will use the skills you learned in class out in the public.

Is Your Dog at Risk for Overheating?

With the rising temperatures, it is advised that your dog only play outside in the heat for 20 – 30 minutes. They should then be brought indoors to give them a break for an hour or so. Keep in mind the more your dog’s body heat rises the quicker it rises. So, in the summer they don’t need an excessive amount of outdoor play; 3-4 sessions a day is sufficient.

Symptoms of Overheating

Heavy panting or rapid breathing Elevated body temperature
Excessive thirst Weakness, collapse
Glazed eyes Increased pulse and heartbeat
Vomiting, bloody diarrhea Seizures
Bright or dark red tongue, gums Excessive drooling
Staggering, stumbling Non-Responsive: meaning the dog will not acknowledge you or not react when you trying to get their attention.

How to Care for an Overheated Dog

  • If you feel that your pet is overheated DO NOT GIVE THEM ICE COLD WATER give them regular tap water. They may not drink at first. Drinking water may also cause vomiting.
  • Do not put ice packs on your dog for this will cause the blood vessels to constrict and could result in your dog going into shock.
  • Cool your dog down
    • Start with hose water or tap water on the paws (this is the only porous place on a dog) and work your way up the body, wetting the back and the head last.
    • If you have a pool,encourage the dog to walk into it if they won’t carry them into the water feet first and again, cool from the paws up.
  • Allow them to rest in front of a fan or in an area that has good air circulation.
  • Do not make them lay on a wet towel – their body heat will turn the towel into a heating pad.

While You Celebrate the 4th, Your Pets Can Too!

Relaxing in the pool, running in the dog park, training on the agility equipment or snoozing in a villa – we’ll be here with them!

For our “fireworks fearful funny friends” our sound-proofed TV Lounge will give them all the comforts of home, without the noise and fears. Reservations required for the TV Lounge.
