In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Louie’s Legacy will be making a trip to assist in evacuating shelter cats and dogs (not owned animals) for medical care and eventual adoption. We are taking part in our own mission from Cincinnati, OH and will be part of a coalition of groups from the Northeast to assist as many animals as possible. In order to evaluate our potential for assistance, we need to know how many foster homes, new and seasoned, we can depend on to assist a needy hurricane shelter animal.
VALLEY STREAM, NY – Everyone knows that people of all ages suffer from seasonal allergies. In fact, the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology estimates that more than 50 million Americans are affected by allergies each year. But, Central Veterinary Associates (CVA) is reminding pet owners that allergies are also extremely common in cats and dogs?
When asked why they spend so much on their pets, owners often respond, “because pets deserve my attention more than most humans do,” or “pets make me happy and there is no price tag on happiness.” This comes as no surprise to our Pet Gazette readers. It all makes perfect sense.
Does having a goldfish confer the same health benefits as having a golden retriever? Most pet studies were of people who had a dog or a cat, making it difficult to draw conclusions about the health benefits of birds, lizards, fish and other pets. How much time the person spends with his or her pet could be strongly influenced by the type of pet and in turn could influence the health benefits of having a pet.

Kennel Clubs assign breeds that are engaged in some sort of physically active work to their Working Group.
Many breeds have worked alongside humans driving various kinds of livestock including cattle, sheep, reindeer and fowl. The most common breeds used for herding are Australian Cattle Dogs, Border Collies, and Kelpies.
After thousands of years of practice, you might think that training a dog would be a natural, almost intuitive, process for humans. But, too often, we make honest errors in training that result in strained relations. Owing to the dog’s resilient nature, minor mistakes rarely result in catastrophe. But major errors can cost owners (and dogs) years of frustration. Here are some of the biggest training miscues owners make, and alternatives to improve chances of keeping you and Fido on the straight and narrow.

The single best gift for your dog is proper training. How many times have you seen new pet owners adopting a new family member, and never dedicating time to train the pooch, thinking that the dog will learn on their own? Likewise, some other dog owners will opt for training a pooch in their own way, using the “whatever works” method of dog training.
My mother was a woman of boundless compassion, a fiery animal rights person who considered disciplining dogs an act of repression and abuse. As a result, a visit to her house meant a bunch of tick-infested, dumpster-breathed oaves would leap on you, lick you, panhandle with impunity, and ram their snouts in your swimsuit areas. At one point my wife had ankle surgery and needed a cane during her recovery; when she realized she could use it to ward off the dogs she brought it on every visit for years, until my mother pointedly commented on the slowness of Alexis’s convalescence.
