prey drive

prey drive

I recently found a decent blog about prey drive. A lot of terriers (including pit bulls), and other dogs have a high prey drive (the “GET IT!!!!” instinct)

Happy endings

Little Myrna, now named Joe, is going to her new home tonight! Her new daddy, my neighbor, D, is taking her. She’ll join big brother Lou, and Ronnie the cat in his household. Because she’ll be just on the other side of the fence we’ll get to see her grow up and she can continue to play with Tilly, Wilson and the orange kittens Jake and Larry, who she loves to wrestle with. We’ll see how much they want to wrestle with her when she gets big.

Myrna needs a forever home!

This sweet little girl is available for adoption!
Myrna came to us last Saturday when she was surrendered at the PETCO I work at. Her breed(s) are unknown but I’m guessing pitbull/something. Maybe sheperd, maybe something smaller. She’s about 8-10wks old, very very sweet, great with people, cats, and dogs.
She’s had her first round of shots, been dewormed, de-flea-ed, and is starting potty, crate and obedience training with me. She’s doing very well at all 3 tasks.
She’s super sweet and I’d really like her to go to a great home. Please spread the word and help out!

dog training

Recently I’ve been helping a (long distance) friend deal with his newly adopted rescue mutt; sweet Bear has some socialization problems that are beyond his new parents’ capabilities. After having a not so great experience with one trainer they turned to me for some help.
I realized that not everyone is aware of the training resources out there.
One of the best places to start your search for a dog trainer is the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT)’s website. APDT is one of the most respected professional groups in the business and you can be sure that anyone you do contact through their site will be knowledgeable and well versed in the field.
APDT’s Trainer search page allows you to enter your location and do a search for dog trainers near to you.
Happy hunting!

I got a big chuckle out of this PSA a friend sent me entitled Poop Fairy ; I just had to share it.
