Probiotics and Your Dogs – Part 2

Digestive-System

One of the important functions of “good” bacteria is protection against gastrointestinal disease. The symbiotic bacteria of the GI tract use mechanisms of competitive exclusion by not allowing the bad bacteria to take up residence. They produce metabolites to bind toxins or directly kill pathogens, immobilizing them from causing disease.

Just this week Jackie Johnson was in a car accident on her way to the Muncie, Indiana Iced Tea Cluster. Holley Eldred posted a plea for help on Facebook and in a matter of a few short minutes Ryan Wolfe was on his way to the rescue! Anyone that knows Ryan knows that he will never hesitate to pitch in and help a fellow fancier in need and, once again, Ryan to the Rescue! Hats off to Ryan for always being there when the need presents itself.

A Better Way to Disinfect Kennels, Whelping Boxes, and Crates

Kennel

Not all disinfectants are created equal. Remember, product labels list the microscopic organisms (bacteria, viruses, and fungi) that can be killed by each disinfectant.

I was saddened to read the Eugene (Oregon) Kennel Club will be folding due to lack of working members. This is becoming an increasing issue with kennel clubs across the nation. If you are not already involved with an all-breed club, please find one in your area and join! This is a critical part of our sport. Without working members, clubs cannot put on dog shows……everyone should consider giving up one or two show weekends a year to help clubs put on their shows.

There have been so many tragic accidents as a result of the heat again this year. I am astounded to find the number of people that lack proper temperature detection devices in their vehicles. So, I thought it might help to give you a list of products that many exhibitors are using. The MarCell Cellular Temperature Monitoring System utilizes cellular frequency to transmit changes in temperature. This unit can be purchased through the website at www.sensoredlife.com. Last I checked the unit itself was $229 and the monthly monitoring cost was about $8.50. There are many similar units out there these days at varied price points. There is also a less expensive unit that costs around $80 that can be purchased at www.lumastrobe.com. This unit is normally used for refrigeration monitoring, but would be a great backup to one of the other temperature alert systems. These purchases can save the lives of your dogs. They cost less than a weekend’s worth of entries. No one attending shows in the summer heat should be without one!

There is never a dull moment in the world of purebred dogs! The Houston Cluster started off with a “bang” when the fire alarm was set off from kitchen smoke. The entire building was evacuated. Congrats to the show committee and all the exhibitors for executing the evacuation in an orderly manner. Many of those [...]

News Flash! Dog Praised For Doing Its Job!

golden

But let’s face it at this point purebreds need all the positive publicity they can get. And it can’t always be about rescuing Timmy from the well. So maybe we should keep this momentum going. Think about it. “Dalmatian Follows Fire Truck”, “Husky Pulls Sled”, “Mastiff Confronts Intruder”, “Pointer Finds Bird Under Bush”. The possibilities are endless.

Here’s something new. Eukanuba dog food will be hosting the first-ever Performance Games at Eukanuba Hall September 14-17th at the Roberts Centre in Wilmington, Ohio. Among the activities will be the first AKC Scent Trial. They will also hold Dock Diving, Fast Cat, Lure Coursing, Disc competition and Barn Hunt. A barbecue is slated for all exhibitors for Friday evening, and there will be run-offs for each completion. Eukanuba intends to offer prize packs for each event. It seems that the brand is investing in Performance sports, which is a great win for the sport of purebred dogs in general.
