BEHAVIOR BY ABBE MOEN Q How safe are retractable flexi leads A A retractable or flexi lead is a type of leash that varies in length but can extend as far as 26 feet away from the handler This lead is often just a thin rope similar to clothesline There are even retractable leashes that will accommodate two dogs on one handle The retractable leash is a tool to facilitate controlling your dog since most cities have leash laws Although there are applications where a retractable leash may be a useful tool it is often used in a manner that is a safety concern The purpose of a leash law should be to keep the dog you are handling and other dogs people and animals safe Retractable leashes can cause tangling tripping and worse Think about this scenario You are walking your dog in your neighborhood on a sidewalk and your dog is 15 feet away from you sniffing the ground following a smell and suddenly a squirrel runs in front of her and your dog decides to give chase the same time a car drives by How safe is your dog in that moment Most sidewalks are less than 10 feet from the road allowing your dog to reach 5 feet into the street Your first reaction is to grab that thin rope which will burn your hand or even cut through the skin However that s not the worst of it Your dog could get hit by the car driving by the car could swerve to miss your dog and cause an accident or the momentum of trying to stop your dog pulls you over There is a time and place to allow your dog some freedom when walking but I recommend doing it in a safer manner When walking in neighborhoods or anywhere where your dog has the possibility of being in close proximity of another dog or person keep your dog on a standard solid 6 foot or shorter leash This gives you better control of your dog when you encounter the different distractions and stimuli 4 All things DOG in Northeast Ohio If you are looking to burn energy from your dog a structured walk walking your dog in a heel position is a more efficient way to burn physical and mental energy How you ask A structured walk is a job for your dog and your dog has to concentrate on walking next to you and ignore all the distractions When your dog has to concentrate and stay under control she is practicing impulse control Impulse control is a very important behavior to learn When it is the time and place to allow your dog more freedom to run and sniff follow these guidelines Once a week I take my dogs to a park field or woods to explore They exit the car on my command and are calm They walk in a heel to our destination and when we get to the field I sit my dogs and switch from standard leash to their long lines an excellent alternative to a retractable leash since it is essentially the same material and thickness of a leash but no reels to break it s much easier on your hands and you have the ability to control more safely I prefer a Biothane material since it is soft on your hands and cleans up very quickly Once the long lines are on my dogs I release my dogs to be dogs When my dogs are done I put them in a sit attach their leashes and we heel back to the car With proper training the right tools and a commitment on your part all this is possible Abbe Moen is a certified trainer and owner of Affinity Canine LLC She is a member of the International Association of Canine Professionals an approved AKC Canine Good Citizen evaluator and dog mom to six Gemma AKC Canine Good Citizen and a certified therapy dog and Oliver AKC Canine Good Citizen both American Staffordshire Terriers Tango AKC Canine Good Citizen and a certified therapy dog Lab Scout AKC Canine Good Citizen and a certified therapy dog Bloodhound Sly Chihuahua mix and Viper Australian Shepherd

PRODUCTS BY JENNIFER BAKER CBD OIL FOR DOGS Cannabidiol better known as CBD oil is a popular natural remedy used for many common ailments in humans and canines I started hearing about CBD oil more than a year ago and began researching its uses I am a bit of a cynic about new products and won t bring anything in to the Grateful Dog Bakery until I can verify it t h ro u g h i n d e p e n d e n t sources What I found was people either raved about how well it worked or said it didn t work at all Further research showed me the best results were coming from a full spectrum molecule product with a high concentration of CBD per dose The full spectrum molecule is able to attach to receptors within the body and brain to relieve pain anxiety and a host of other problems Once I figured out how the product worked it was time to start researching companies While there are many products made specifically for pets I settled on Clean Remedies for several reasons The product is grown in Oregon is organic and vegan with no use of any pesticides But what really sold me was the pet and human products are the same simply packaged with different dosing instructions Retriever has arthritis in his hips and spine so I started giving it to him twice a day orally in his food Ophelia another Golden is storm phobic so I also gave it to her for anxiety I am happy to report she seemed much calmer with the CBD oil Beau is more mobile spending more time strolling the yard than he has in the last few years Finally since I also have arthritis I started taking it myself I can t say I am completely pain free but I am a lot more comfortable especially after a long day at the baking table The feedback I am getting from customers is also very positive Dogs with arthritis are more mobile and anxious dogs are calmer Another customer is giving it to her dog who was having seizures She reports no seizure activity in the three months since the dog started taking it Before the CBD oil the dog was having 1 to 2 seizures a week while on anti seizure medication The owner will be talking to her vet about decreasing the prescription dosage with hopes of weaning the dog off it entirely CBD oil is a product I am confident in recommending The product is tested by independent labs and the results are made public to verify it is what the company says it is Finally the staff is educated about the product and happy to answer any questions I take pride in the fact there is no product in the store that I won t give my own dogs Beau our 12 year old Golden Jennifer Baker is owner of Grateful Dog Bakery in North Ridgeville an all natural dog and cat supply store featuring an in store dog bakery She is the proud mom of five dogs and one cat To contact Jennifer email news gratefuldogbakery com or follow gratefuldogbakery on Instagram Jan Feb 2019 CLEDOG net 7
