Dog Fitness

Each day we all should attempt some form of fitness or walking to relax a little and unwind. Our dogs are like us and need that release.. Many councils have now installed dog friendly parks and play equipment to ensure that dogs are entertained and given a great area to release their energy . If possible try to use all the park to the best advantage this way your dog will not become territorial . Yes there is bullying in the doggie world and especially at the gate where you enter so just patiently wait until other dogs settle and then enter . Also do not let your doggie play the king pin thing either it can cause a fight.
Ensure you have a little bag of snacks and some water but most dog parks have a water dog fountain .
A lot of time it is the doggie leading the master on a walk not the master leading the dog..Try if possible to keep you dog fairly controlled ,but they do love their walks so some forgiveness can be arranged.
Other fitness dog fun are
Sniffer Dog
Dog agility
Dog disc training
Fly ball .. This is the most popular of all the dog sports ..
Earthdog trials
Schutzhund tracking, obedience, protection, schutzhund is all about what a well rounded dog is all about.. **added description as I had not heard of this before ***
The main emphasis is for your dog to enjoy itself ..
There are many toys and fun ideas on the web ..

Dog and Cat Nail Trimming

Pets as well as humans need grooming. Even as part of our ritual of brushing our hair we also cut our nails. Leaving nails long can cause cut paws ,irritations , and bleeding .
The most common problems for a cat with long nails is ingrown in to the pads and risk of abscesses.
For a dog it is veins becoming to large and cutting a problem. Puppies can be cut weekly.
The earlier a pets understands that nails will be cut regularly the stress will be minimal.
Have a good technique and the appropriate clippers or pedi- machine the job can be done quickly and effortlessly.
Remember each animal responds differently. With my cat I tend to have her held under the arm pits with her leg raised. Then cut each claw quickly. My regular cutting is every 3 weeks.
The colour of the dog or cats claws can be either clear or black . The clear claws are quite easy to cut s you can see where the vein begin but with black claws you check and cut until a white dot appears.

Most grooming centres and vets will help you if you are not confident. I you have just purchased a pet check out all information and websites for the different types of clippers that can be bought .
Cutting should be a no stressful experience .

My Cat Lucy

Lucy is quite special to us as she was found abandoned at a factory site. She is classed as a short haired ginger cat . At 5 years of age still acts like a kitten but is a cat fully of mischief.Lucy does have snack attacks just like any other cat . She is a great cat and knows exactly what is hers .Any way enjoy the photo and little video Regards Angela

Tasmanian devil facial tumour disease : Save the Tasmanian devil

Tasmanian devil facial tumour disease : Save the Tasmanian devil

Endangered Animals

So many of our native species are under threat. Koalas ,spotted Quoll, Mary River Turtles various species of frogs Butterflies.

The worse plight is for the Tasmanian devil . The facial tumour disease basically each and infects generally the facial area . It isnot resticted to older Adult Devils .It only takes around 3 months and cause of death is starvation.. a really sad plight

Koalas have to fight with less land and trees and cars of course and Clamydia .. general result is death.

My last holiday was visiting Charleville outback Queensland.. While there I visited the Bilby visitors centre .These cute rabbit like creature are restricted to a fully fenced enclosure 400km west of Charleville. The population of these animal stands at around 700. If it was not for the enclosure and captive breeding program the numbers would be less . Believe me they are gorgeous. The picture is attached we saw the bilbys at the Environmental protection agency .
