Dog Poop Bags – new times call for new business

Dog Poop Bags – new times call for new business

Times have changed. Our cities have expanded, more open land is being developed now and we’re all living in high rise buildings with no gardens. The result is that we are all required to take our dogs out to community parks to relieve themselves and that has brought on the new problem of dealing with pet waste.

Laws and rules have been laid down about owners having to clean up after their pets and before long dog poop bags were invented and they are now sold all over the place to make it easier and more convenient for pet owners to actively take care of the environment.

As times change and new things come about, new business opportunities arise. Dog poop bags, as simple as they are, have become a business opportunity like few others. In my opinion the business can be compared to the opportunity toilet paper was in the days it was invented. Pets will always produce waste, and pet owners will always be obliged to clean up after their pets. Dog poop bags are almost as high in demand as toilet paper now, and laws that state pet owners have to take care of their dog’s business ensure that dog poop bags will never go out of demand.

As a result, dog poop bags are a good investment from a business point of view. New developments in the characteristics of dog poop bags are also wide open for exploration as the product still has room for improvement. The bags have been made biodegradable, recently also flushable, they’ve been made colourful and scented, and there will still be more developments in this industry.

If you’re interested in getting involved in business opportunities, something as simple and every-day as dog poop bags could be just the answer for you, because it’s in such high demand and so many pet owners are willing to jump at new developments that make waste removal even easier and less unpleasant for them. Turn on your creative brain, get involved in the dog poop bags business and make a difference to the environment and pet owner’s sentiments, along with the money you earn.

Welcome Home to Your New Pet. Now What?

According to recent statistics, more and more Americans are adopting not only their first companion animal, but their second and even third. The pervasiveness of multiple pet households indicates just how important pets have become in our lives, and that we want our existing pets to have companions of their own.

Having multiple pets increases everything: the joy, the cost, the hair, and the cuddles. As a veterinarian, I am often asked for advice on how best to integrate a new pet into a home that already has resident animals. In this post, I’ll be focusing on dog-only and cat-only households.

In a Dog-Meet-Dog World
When seeking to add an additional dog to your family, be sure to choose a breed, gender and personality that compliment your current canine. For example, it’s unwise to match a tea cup poodle puppy with a large or giant breed dog, especially an active one. Even if no harm is intended, the puppy could easily be injured. Similarly, be conscientious if you already have an older dog with arthritis, as a puppy could prove overwhelming. In general, opposite genders get along better, as do spayed and neutered pets (procedures I heartily endorse). In general, we would recommend the adoption of a dog younger than the resident dog; if the ages are reversed, tension could result, leading to recurring fights over who claims dominance. Of course, as I mentioned earlier, personality is an important factor. You know your resident dog’s disposition and it’s essential to take that into consideration when bringing a new dog into your home.

It’s always a good idea to have your existing dog as well-trained as possible prior to bringing a new dog into your home. Trust me, it will make your life easier and may even help facilitate the training of your new dog. As pack animals, dogs instinctively pick up the habits of their pack members. If you have a well-trained resident dog, then he or she can show the newcomer ‘how things are done’.

Even if your dogs seem to hit it off great from the get-go, don’t leave them unsupervised until you are certain that they have fully accepted each other. To that end, some experts advise that the dogs have time away from each other, as well as time off from you, too. This will help foster their bonds to you while also teaching them that it’s okay to be alone.

Feeding time can be a challenge with more than one dog. If the dogs compete for food, it may result in snarly spats and possibly overeating (at least, for one of the dogs). In addition, the dogs may develop the habit of ‘bolting their food’, or eating too quickly while not chewing their food sufficiently. Bolting may lead to serious problems like chunks becoming lodged in the throat, or cause GI distress like vomiting or diarrhea. The simplest way to avoid these problems is by feeding the dogs separately. If you have dog crates, consider feeding them while they’re safely ensconced inside their individual crates. Short of that, consider feeding in separate rooms, but be sure to close the doors! Whatever method you choose, make sure the feeding areas are places where your dogs will feel safe and will be able to eat undisturbed. Remember to remove the bowls after your dogs are finished eating.

Lastly, make sure that you purchase separate bedding, bowls and toys for your new dog. Some experts believe that it’s vital that each dog has his or her own property, as this will help your resident dog feel less threatened by the newcomer.

Cat Plus Kitty Doesn’t Have to Mean Catty
Just like with dogs, be thoughtful of your resident cats when bringing a new cat into your home. If your existing cat is quiet or reserved, then a mature companion can be good choice; if you have an active cat, consider getting a cat with an energetic disposition. If you choose to introduce an adult cat, try to find one who has lived in a feline community before. The best combinations are based on personality, so choose a cat with a temperament that compliments your resident cat. Adding together two unneutered male cats can be recipe for conflict. Please make certain that your newcomer has had a thorough veterinary exam and tests negative for intestinal parasites, feline leukemia and AIDS, as the latter two are highly infectious diseases.

The best way to introduce a new cat is gradually. A new feline in the home will likely lead to some measure of stress for your resident cat, especially if your cat has no prior experience living with other pets. Keep the new cat in an area separate from your resident cat, such as a bedroom or bathroom with a shut door, and introduce them in stages, using progressively increasing increments of exposure time. Never leave them unattended until both the cats appear to fully accept one another. Be forewarned, sometimes this process can take between a week and a month, depending on the temperament of both cats. Cats, by nature, don’t like change. Chances are, your resident cat may hide, ignore or hiss at the newcomer for a few days, so give your kitty some time to adapt. In the majority of cases, the household will resume normalcy over time.

In the meantime, there are things you can do to ease the transition. Give the new cat its own bedding, litterbox, food dishes and toys in an area separate from the resident cat’s belongings. Make sure both cats have separate areas where they can retreat to if threatened. Add additional cat trees and scratching posts around the house for environmental enrichment. You might also consider purchasing plug-in Feliway dispensers, which can reduce stress during the introductory period.

With a little bit of forethought and patience, you too will be able to welcome your home (and your heart) to a new companion animal and incorporate them safely into your existing family.

I saw the group photo of the former Vic dogs and decided to look up the Bad Rap site.I noticed their is a link to the PBS show"The Dogs are all Right"The first few shots of the Vic compound horrified me.Now some may feel the comparison absurd but I couldn't help think "This is a concentration camp for dogs"The horror and brutality that these beautiful animals endured(and of course there were many victims as well)was a terrible thing.If the dogs could tell their story through their own lips the comparison would be very similar to that awful time in mankind's history.To them Mike Vic and his unfeeling cohorts would have seemed like Hitler and the SS officers who ran those camps.That truly was a shameful time in human history and what Vic did and so many others who engage in dog fighting again a shameful time in dog history.Thank You for giving these dear creatures the chance to have a better life.

I Love Broccoli!

Who doesn’t? ;) You can put broccoli in just about any meal, and it is one of the most nutritious veggies you can eat! This is the first year I have attempted to grow broccoli, and I have had great success so far, other than Turk taking a bite off a few leaves here and there. :p  Today I prepped one of my broccoli plants for harvest. To prevent the broccoli head from going all rangy, you have to tie a string or place a rubber band around the leaves to keep the growing head of broccoli in an organized and tight grouping, which will make harvesting easier as well as your broccoli looking prettier ;) I am going to try to get the head of broccoli as big as I can before harvesting. As soon as any of it starts to yellow, that means the plant is going to seed and you have to harvest ASAP. I have two pants growing so far, one is still pretty small, so I won’t be prepping that one for another few weeks. Take a look!

The head of broccoli is growing bigger each day.

Here is the rubber band I placed just under the leaves.

The plant is tied and ready for harvesting soon!

Nice Dog photos

Some cool Dog images:

Dog with goggles

Image by nc_hiker
I was behind this pickup truck at a stop light, and had only a moment or two in which to snap this picture and another one …. was so intrigued as to why this dog is wearing goggles/sunglasses!

When I looked at him, the eye covering looked like sunglasses. But once I looked at this photo, it almost looks like some sort of protective, perhaps therapeutic type of eye wear ?????

The dog turned full face towards me, but just then the traffic started moving, and the picture came out totally blurry, but this picture still shows a better view of this eye wear thing-y!!

Dog Agility Trials

Image by don j schulte @ oxherder arts
It was my pleasure to photograph our local Dog Agility trials again this year. It’s wonderful to see the athleticism and strong bond these dog’s have with their owners. From small to large, competitive to not-so-competitive, each dog was fun to watch and record in images. Whether it was running through rings, over jumps, through tunnels, weaving poles, or over catwalks you could tell each dog was enjoying their "work".

A few more thousand of these are loaded up on the Gallery site. This is the second year of using Smugmug and highly recommend its usage. Since I have loaded up the images the orders roll through without my involvement.

Notes: I (and my talented second shooter) shot nearly 8000 images in two eight hour days at this event. The lighting is extremely bad with two different types of light in this horse arena. It also had filtered skylights but this year it was heavy overcast and we got very little natural lighting. It made a big difference from last year. Everything was shot at ISO1600 with shutter priority trying to stay faster than 1/250 which is about the minimum acceptable for a fast moving dog. Even then each of the 1000′s of images needed lots of work in PS as each was shot a few stops underexposed. 50% of the image were thrown out as unusable. I rented a second 70-200 f/2.8 lens for the event and would highly recommend that for special lens needs.
