Start the new year off right by being prepared for dog emergencies.

Do you know where your closest 24 hour/seven days a week emergency veterinarian clinic is at? Click here for a list of emergency clinics in the proximity of Jasper, GA.

Do you have a canine first aid kit at home? The AKC has an excellent check list of things your first aid kit should contain. You can also purchase ready-to-go-kits from most pet supply companies.

The ASPCA will send you free window and door stickers to help alert rescue personnel that pets are inside your home in the event of an emergency (if you sign up for email alerts).

Make sure your dog is wearing a collar with an ID tag with contact information in case he gets lost. Better yet, get your dog microchipped.

The new year is upon us, and with it comes the desire to establish goals for the upcoming year.

Common New Year’s resolutions include exercising, losing weight and getting organized. If you are a dog owner, your list might also include training your dog.

Make training fun for you and your dog by incorporating games into your training sessions.

Do you need help with coming when called, drop it, ankle nipping, jumping or walking nicely on leash? Click here for more info on how to make training these cues fun.
Playing tug is a fun way to teach
your dog the "drop it" cue.
