Jello is getting a little impatient with this whole "staying off the naughty list" thing.
Friday, we had a series of unfortunate events. I forgot the baby gate. The closet door was open... Jello helped himself to snacks in my hiking pack... including two and a half chocolate peanut butter Rx bars, a bag of Stella and Chewy treats, and a ziplock full of miscellaneous dog snacks.
So, along with packing the last of my supplies for the #UrbanCraftUprising show at #westlakepark , I also had to haul the dogs to the clinic and Jello got to reverse all that stuff back out. Fun times.
Luckily, he is ok. Luckily, I work with an amazing group of people. Luckily, he is cute!
The @healtohowl pets got new mats!
Have an extra yoga mat laying around? Cut them according to your pet's size, and then they'll have a new mat, too! If you can't tell from our logo, we love trees, so we had to get this #yogamat from @inclinefit. We bet that @inclinefit didn't know their mats could make husbandry more efficient and enjoyable for pets!
There's many benefits to having a non-slip mat that's easy to transport for your pets:
1. Dogs and cats feel much more comfortable when receiving husbandry and veterinary care when they're on a non-slip surface.
2. If you bring the mat with you and your pet to their veterinary and grooming appointments, the mat's scent and presence may serve as something familiar and calming. Bonus points if you spray the mat with @adaptildog or @feliwaycat!
3. With some training, your pet can tell you if they consent to their care using whether they stay on the mat or move off of it as a clear visual signal. Pets are much less fearful and stressed about husbandry and veterinary care when they feel they have a choice in the matter. (Note: many pets don't readily choose things like nail trims, but this can be changed with training and behavior modification!)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. Mats can be used for other fun training exercises!
Does your pet have a mat? What activities do they use it for? We want to see! Tag us in your pictures and videos!
You are more loved than you know! Happy fourth birthday to this sweet, furry soul. You are my right hand, my rock and my protector. You helped me through the hardest time of my life and are now by my side during my triumphs. I promise to give you the back yard and doggy door you deserve as soon as i can. ❤️ #happyfourthbirthday
