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!
