This summer has been one for the record books as to lack of rain and the severity of the heat.  Fall hopefully will bring some relief and much needed rain.  As we think about going out to walk our dogs we also have to keep in mind can we be seen?  The days grow shorter with little light. In some areas the hunters are out looking for deer, bear and water fowl. In the northeast we are also dealing with coyote as they have fewer places to hunt for food.  The best way to keep safe is to be load make a lot of noise as you walk. Keep your dog, close by on a leash. Wear bright clothes and reflective vests for both you and your dog. Try the right size if you have a lab, German Shepard, Yorkie, Corgi, Poodle, Chihuahua, Shitzu, Golden Retriever… Match vests are available at Funlovingpets.com . If confronted by a coyote pick up rocks to throw, yell spread your arms wide to make your self seem bigger.

What do you look for in the food? A few questions to ask yourself when deciding on food such as California Natural or Innova, Evo, Canine Cavair, SOJOs. 

 Does your cat or dog require a special diet?

How old is your dog or cat?   Here at Funlovingpets.com our dog is young. Do you have a senior dog requiring a Senior dog food such as special diet for senior dogs of Canine Caviar.  Is your cat a kitten or a senior cat do you have many cats. Do they play or just hang out during the day. Innova Cat food has all the nutrition needed without the fillers.  Take a look at the ingredients in the cat food watch out for ash and other fillers. If you feed cat kibble they will need lots of water. If you feed them wet or canned food they will only drink a little water.

How active/ high energy is your dog or cat? Do you have a Greyhound or a Shepard, Golden Retriever, Terrier, Border Collie, Siberian Husky these all need a diet to accommodate their specific high energy needs.  Evo wild nutrition or Karma 98% organic dog food maybe just the right blend for your active dog. 

Does your dog (Golden Retriever, Chihuahua, Shitzu, Yorkies, Great Dane) need one or two ingredient food? As with babies when you are trying to decide if you pet has a food allergy or is sensitive to a certain food you start with one or two food items.  California Natural offers a lamb and rice mix that is very gentle on the dogs stomach. They also have a Herring and sweet potato mix good for the coat. Lots of Omega 3’s. The other option is to cook for your dog. The only problem is you need to have a balanced diet of the proper amount of protein and fat plus vegetables for your dog. http://funlovingpets.com/california-natural-lamb-meal-amp-rice-adult-large-bites-dry-dog-food.html.  If your dog gets lots of gas or upset stomach try a little pumpkin it works great. You only need a few tablespoons depending on the breed of dog or how big of a dog. 

Where do the ingredients come from of the dog food you decide on?  It is important to not only look at where a product is manufactured but where did the ingredients come from. Was the chicken raised in China. Is it wild salmon or farm raised. The sweet potatoes how were they dried? The beef bones or beef in the food where was the cow raised and butchered.  These are very important questions to be asking.  Think in terms of the pollution level in certain countries.

What will your dog or cat eat?  Do you have a finicky cat or dog? Try getting samples of the foods you are thinking of trying for your dog or cat. It is important to slowly change the food your dog or cat will be eating. They do have sensitive stomachs and will need to be gradually moved to a new food.  Many of the foods come in smaller sizes such as 6.6 pounds or 2 pounds to allow the gradual move to the new food. 

If you have other questions or concerns check in with your veterinarian!

How often do you travel with your dog or cat?  Do you travel on a train, plane or car, RV?  Traveling with a pet requires different preparations depending on the type of travel you will be doing , the size of your pet and breed.  If you have a small dog such as a Chihuahua or Shih Tzu, Maltese, small poodles, Italian Greyhounds, Yorkshire Terrier… it can be easier to let them move around or travel under the seat on a plane and train.  Large dogs such as Labadoodles, German Shepherd, Boxer, Bernese Mountain Dogs, English Setter will have to be crated and put in the luggage hold.  If you can there are airlines that are designed for traveling with your dog.  The other consideration is your dog’s breed.  Some breeds are more nervous and can get easily agitated dealing with new and noisy places.  Check with your veterinarian for assistance. 

 Keep in mind the amount of time needed to exercise your dog when traveling.  If traveling by RV or car check out on-line for good dog parks along the way to stop and get out to stretch. This is also beneficial for the driver besides the dog. What a great excuse to meet new people and learn about the area you are traveling through than to walk your dog.  The furry Travelers have a good snack and water bowl for traveling in a car or RV. The food and water can be stored right in the cup holder. (www.funlovingpets.com). Keep your dog restrained in the car or RV, Krugo has a good seat for the small dog and restraints for the larger dog.  The damage and pain that can be inflicted on a dog if they are thrown from the car during an accident or getting something in their eyes when they stick their head out the window.   If you want to be seen by traffic always a good idea check out the high visibility reflective vests for both the dog owner and dog.
