Dog Park Etiquette

Dog Park Etiquette: What You Need to Know for Off-Leash Fun

Dog parks are more than just places for your pampered pooch to burn off some steam and calories. Within the chain link confines of dog parks, you can find camaraderie, exercise, laughter, fun and of course, dogs!

Here are some tips for merging good manners and common sense to create the ultimate dog park experience for you and your pet:

Scoop the Poophondo-dog-park

Nobody likes messy shoes (or paws). As soon as your dog makes a mess, clean it up and throw it away. Many dog parks are well-stocked with poop bags for clean-up but always show up prepared with your own. This simple step will help keep the park clean and prevent the unintentional spread of disease.

Bring Only Healthy Dogs to the Dog Park

Make sure your dog is fully vaccinated before you go to the dog park. This is especially important for puppies. Also, check your local park’s rules and regulations—some parks don’t allow puppies younger than 4 months inside. Never take a female dog that’s in heat to a dog park either: you risk meeting up with non-neutered males and exposing your dog to aggressive pursuit.

Be Responsible for Your Dog’s Behavior

Your dog may be good-natured and obedient at home, but be prepared to monitor her closely when exposing her to the new environment of a dog park. Let your pet play with the other dogs, but watch her body language and look for signs of fearful or aggressive behavior. This means always keeping an eye on your dog and not letting her get too far out of reach.

Keep in mind that other Pet Parents may not be as responsible as you and their dogs may not want to play.

If your dog begins to growl, show teeth or behave aggressively or is the target of another dog’s aggression, intervene and redirect your dog to another area of the park. If the behavior continues, it may be best to leave the park entirely and seek the advice of a trainer who can help socialize your dog in a safe, controlled setting.

Limit the number of dogs you bring to the dog park. Some parks have restrictions on how many dogs Pet Parents can bring, but even if yours doesn’t, only bring as many dogs as you can safely manage.

Leave Toys at Home

Some parks have communal tennis balls free for the tossing, but remember that squeaky toys, tug toys, and rope toys brought from home can cause normally docile dogs to become possessive. Avoid any possible conflict over favorite toys by leaving them at home. If you encounter a dog that is playing with a toy from home, try to steer your pet’s energy away from that pup and toward a communal ball or a play pack having a good time.

Toddlers and Dog Parks

Don’t risk the chance of an accident by bringing small children into dog parks. Dogs running around the park can really build up speed and aren’t always paying attention to where they are headed.

Toddlers can easily be knocked over during the fun. Also remember, dogs with a strong prey drive will often chase and sometimes nip at anything small and moving. If you absolutely must bring your children to the dog park, make sure you keep a close eye on them and keep them at a safe distance from dogs at play.

Remember, Safety First

As soon as you enter the dog park, take off all gear other than your dog’s collar and ID tag. This will help prevent your dog’s (and any of his four-legged friend’s) teeth or jaw from getting caught in any gear.

By approaching the whole dog park experience with a friendly attitude, responsible behavior, and a willingness to keep the park itself clean, you’ll find it easy for you and your dog to get exercise and socialize.

Homemade Dog Treats Maker Pupolicious Announces Dog Treats With New Healthy Icing

Homemade Dog Treats Maker Pupolicious Announces Dog Treats With New Healthy Icing













Wheat Free Dog Treats


Quincy, IL (PRWEB) April 25, 2013

Pupolicious is a Quincy, IL-based company that provides healthy dog treats with no added sugar, no preservatives, and no long unpronounceable words. These treats simply provide safe, wholesome ingredients that all dogs will love. Pupolicious isn’t just another dog treat; it’s healthy from the inside out.

“Our icing mix contains only natural ingredients, which means no wheat and no gluten,” said Teresa Koch, CEO of Pupolicious. “Dogs not only love it but it’s good for their teeth, providing a protective coat. Feed them our healthy dog treats and you’re in control of their health and well-being.”

Many dogs are allergic to wheat. For these special dogs we offer wheat free dog treats, gluten free dog treats, and an icing mix that is 100% gluten and wheat free. Gluten has become a hot topic for pet owners in recent years. It seems like there is a new recall every couple of months for contaminated pet products. By giving dogs gluten free dog treats it is contributing to the pets health and giving them something they’ll love.

“My sister found this for me, and it’s great! I love baking, so this is right up my alley”, said Kari an enthusiastic dog owner. “Knowing that these homemade dog treats are healthy means I will be coming back again. Thanks sis!”

Founder of Clear Conscience Pet

Founder of Clear Conscience Pet®, Anthony Bennie, Will be Presenting “Confessions of a Dog Food Salesman” at This Year’s Supply Side MarketPlace Conference











Clear Conscience Pet, Founder Anthony Bennie at Supply Side


New York, NY (PRWEB) April 30, 2013

The Supply Side Marketplace will be held April 30th through May 2nd at the Jacob Javits Center Convention Center in New York City. The conference will bring together buyers, sellers, and manufacturers who will shape the future of the ingredients to be used in health foods, dietary supplements, beverages, cosmetics, and animal foods.

Anthony Bennie, the Founder and President of Clear Conscience Pet, has been selected for the second time by the Virgo Health and Nutrition Network to represent the pet nutrition industry as a speaker at the event. The talk is part of the “Supply Side Why” series of ten minute “TED” style offerings by thought leaders from a broad cross section of the health and nutrition world.

Bennie’s presentation, entitled “Confessions of a Pet Food Salesman,” will debut at the conference on Thursday, May 2nd at 11:00 AM. The presentation will be podcast live from 11:00 am to 11:10 from booth 680 on the Javits Center show floor. The podcast URL is http://marketplace.supplysideshow.com/why-live.aspx

Clear Conscience Petwon Virgo’s 2012 award for animal nutrition at the Supply Side West show in Las Vegas.“We named the company Clear Conscience Pet to reflect our philosophy of uncompromising quality, holistically balanced nutrition, and ethical and fair business practices,” said Bennie. “This philosophy directs every aspect of how we source, make, and formulate our treats, natural chews, and our SuperGravy food enhancer,” he added.

The company recently launched its new Sliders® brand of holistic dog treats, thus joining the SuperGravy® brand, the patent-pending OSV line of flax and vegetable coated treats and chews, and Cruncherz Organic grain and gluten free dog biscuits. Although the company is fairly new, Bennie is a twenty year veteran of the natural pet food industry and has published numerous articles in the field as well as presenting several guest lectures on dog and cat nutrition at Cornell and other colleges of veterinary medicine.

“Confessions of a Pet Food Salesman,” will debut at this year’s event and promises to be controversial in some circles. “We want to be remove the veil and look at some of the marketing gimmicks and outright deception that have all too often characterized the pet food industry,” said Bennie. “As an industry insider, I have been privy to what happens behind the scenes and if it offends some people that I am going to share this information, so be it. My goal is not to sensationalize, but to educate. It is my hope that consumers, ingredient suppliers, and manufacturers will be both entertained and enlightened to make better choices in product formulation and choices for their own animal companions.”
