Large & Giant Breed Puppy

This formula is designed for those puppies that will reach 50 pounds or more as an adult. Its triple meat protein source builds good solid muscle, providing optimum calcium and phosphorus. In addition, there are slightly fewer calories so that puppies don’t gain too much weight before their bodies are ready to support it.

THIS is why you do not walk your dogs on asphalt or concrete in the summer. If you see someone walking their dogs on asphalt or concrete, PLEASE educated them and get the pet to cooler ground. Original post was from Pet Ambulance Victoria

This should be sent to all the veterinarians including the specialists!



DOG PARK ALERT

We have received two notices. (1) Nails wrapped in cheese at dog parks in Chicago and Massachusetts (see pic). (2) from some friends that in Augusta Maine dog park, antifreeze is being found in doggie water bowls. Please beware and be careful and PLEASE SHARE and spread the word



Ever wonder where puppy mill dogs come from? Here's an example. Many get cooked alive in the sun and freeze to death in the winter. If you purchase your dog from a pet store, I can guarantee your "AKC" certified dog came from a place like this.  This one is even better than the ones  I saw in Iowa and Missouri!



Do you recognize she is a Yorkie?
Please do not purchase your pet from a Pet shop, Backyard breeder or Commercial Puppy Mill.

"Fun at the Beach"

"Fun at Work"


This is a real combination of symptoms that spells out EMERGENCY. These are the classic symptoms of a condition referred to as "bloat" - a dog that is pacing, restless and has unproductive attempts to vomit.

This is a common problem in large breed deep-chested dogs but can also occur in smaller dogs.

Basically what happens is this - the stomach twists causing the blood supply to the stomach to be compromised then leads to tissue death. As tissues are damaged, toxins are released and a sequence of events occurs that if left untreated, leads to death.

If you ever notice these symptoms in your dog, call your local veterinarian or emergency clinic as soon as possible.

This is a condition that is fairly common and often occurs in the evening or nighttime hours. It is also a very expensive condition to treat.  READ MORE...

           

Dealing with Excessive Barking

The first step to stopping barking is to understand why it is happening. Dogs bark for all kinds of reasons, including anxiety, boredom and/or loneliness. Sometimes they bark just because it feels good.  Luckily, most dogs will respond to one or other intervention to curtail their barking. Whether you simply bring an outdoor dog inside or take the time to apply behavior-modification techniques, you can cause a dog to be less of a nuisance and to be more socially acceptable.


Removing Skunk Odor

No need for the tomato juice. Use a mixture of 10 parts hydrogen peroxide to 1 part baking soda. Add a dash of degreasing dishwashing soap and pour into a spray bottle. Spray liberally over dry coat and allow to air dry. Avoid eyes. Works on other objects, too!

usa german shepherd breed survey(Kkl)regulations
 

The breed survey is the ultimate instrument used as the selection method
for the German Shepherd Dog Breed. It is absolutely necessary for the
preservation and advancement of this breed.

Originally developed in Germany for their domestic stock, in 1922 the breed
survey also became the tool used as a resource for breeding the German
Shepherd Dog.  Simply explained, German Shepherd Dogs need a
certificate for reproduction.

This certificate is issued by the USA/SV organization which follows a
special procedure where the breed survey judge evaluates the dog’s
temperament in different stimulus situations. The dog must always
demonstrate a friendly and self-confident character and in any situation,
must show control even when in confrontation with its own natural instincts.

After these tests the dog will be measured, weighed, and anatomically analyzed
in the stand position and also, when in movement.  Based on each dog’s
overall evaluation, it will be awarded the predicate Class I or Class II.  Of course,
not all dogs will be able to reach the level of these certificates.

The requirements to enter a dog in the breed survey event are not easy to
achieve.  They must be registered with the SV/USA organizations,
absolutely healthy, a minimum of 2 years of age, they must have
successfully completed an endurance test, received a rating of at least
“good” in a breed show, they must have obtained at least a performance title of
SchH 1 and must have certified hips. This may seem to be very restrictive,
but it makes sense since we are looking for animals within our whole
breed population, which have been selected based on their
temperament, performance, and anatomy to improve and advance the breed. 

 This is an ideal tool for breeders to be able to carefully plan all their future breedings.


USA Breed Survey Regulations 

1.  GENERAL
The United Schutzhund Clubs of America (USA) is a German Shepherd Dog breed organization guided by the rules of the founding organization of German Shepherd Dogs, the Verein fόr Deutsche Schδferhunde (SV) in Germany, with the objective of preserving the breed in accordance with the breed standard as a working dog. The USA Breed Survey Regulations coincide with the SV regulations; however, they have been somewhat modified to conform to the needs of USA.

6.5.4.  When giving the “aus/out” command, the handler must stand still and may not influence the dog in any way.

6.5.5.  If the dog's name is used, it is counted as an “aus/out” command.

6.5.6.  If the dog releases on its own when the handler approaches, it can still be counted as a release; however, the handler must be at least five paces from the dog at that time.

6.5.7.  If the dog releases on its own or in response to the “aus/out” command after the attack and after the defense exercise; the rating “does release” is awarded.

6.6.3.  Present: Deficiencies, for example, in self-confidence, in goal-oriented behavior, in grip and stick behavior, as well as in the guarding phases.

6.6.4.  Insufficient: Lacking self-confidence, strong deficiencies with respect to hardness, and disinterest in the helper.

 

6.7.  Measurements and Weights 

The breed survey secretary or an assistant may weigh the dogs and take measurements for chest depth and chest circumference. The breed survey master must take measurements of the height at the withers.

 

6.8.  Examination of Standing Dog and Evaluation of Movement 

During this examination, the breed survey master writes the breed survey report. The handler must refrain as much as possible from influencing the dog during this examination.

 

6.9.  Reports and Certificates  

After completing the survey for each dog, the breed survey master announces the results over the loudspeaker. The owners of the dogs receive a temporary breed survey certificate signed by the breed survey master that shows the survey result. This certificate is proof of breed survey and replaces the original paperwork while the USA Breed Book Office is processing the breed survey. 

 

7.  BREED SURVEY 

7.1.  Survey Class 1 

Survey Class 1 is the highest breed survey classification and is awarded to dogs recommended for breeding. This class is limited to dogs that conform to the breed characteristics as follows: 

7.1.1.  Measurements, weight, and structure conform to the standard.

7.1.2.  Overall temperament is self-confident and good-natured, with TSB rating of “pronounced.”

7.1.3.  Faultless dentition with no missing teeth; however, double premolars #1 are allowed.

 

7.2.  Survey Class 2 

Survey Class 2 is the lower breed survey classification and is awarded to dogs approved for breeding. This class includes dogs with the following faults: 

7.2.1.  Minor anatomical faults.

7.2.2.  Oversized or undersized up to 1 cm, measured at the withers (maximum is males 66 cm/ bitches 61 cm and minimum is males 59 cm/bitches 54 cm).

7.2.3.  TSB rating of “present.”

7.2.4.  Dentition faults as follows:

·      Missing one premolar #1 or one incisor

·      Missing two premolars #1

·      Missing one premolar #1 and one incisor

·      Missing one premolar #2

·      Slight level bite of the middle incisors

 

7.3. Upgrading of Survey Class 

The owner of a dog surveyed in Class 2 (initial or repeat survey) has the option of presenting the dog again for a breed survey improvement in the first year of the current breed survey. Application for survey rating upgrade is possible one time for both the initial survey and resurvey. 

7.4.  One-Year Deferment  

A one-year deferment is possible for the following reasons: 

7.4.1.  The physical development of the dog is not advanced enough for surveying, but the dog is expected to reach desirable development.

7.4.2.  The TSB evaluation of the dog is insufficient to pass the breed survey.

7.4.3.  A one-year deferment is only possible one time for the same reason. 

If the dog fails a second time for the same reason, the dog is not suitable for surveying.

 

7.5.  Not Suitable for Survey 

The following faults preclude a breed survey: 

7.5.1.  Considerable anatomical faults.

7.5.2.  Oversized or undersized more than 1 cm, measured at the withers (maximum is males 66 cm/ bitches 61 cm and minimum is males 59 cm/bitches 54 cm).

7.5.3.  Testicle faults.

7.5.4.  Dentition faults as follows:

·      Missing one premolar #3

·      Missing two incisors

·      Missing one premolar #2 plus one incisor

·      Missing one premolar #2 plus one premolar #1

·      Missing two premolar #2

7.5.5.  Considerable pigment deficiencies.

7.5.6.  Long coat or long stock coat.

 

7.6.  Survey Term  

7.6.1.  The term for initial survey and survey after lapse is two years. The dog must be presented again during the second year of the current breed survey for the resurvey for life.

7.6.2.  Resurvey is effective for life.

7.6.3.  Upgrading of survey class does not extend the original survey term.

7.6.4.  The survey term for females that are in an advanced stage of pregnancy or are nursing may be extended for an additional year without the female being presented for evaluation (survey extension). Survey extension is not possible for any other reasons and may be granted one time. On the day of the breed survey the following proof must be presented:

•         Pregnancy of at least 42 days by submission of the stud certificate/report of breeding card.

•         Certificate issued by the local breed warden or a licensed veterinarian verifying that the female is visibly pregnant.

•         Certificate issued by the local breed warden or a licensed veterinarian verifying that the female is nursing if no more than 42 days have elapsed from the whelping day to the survey day.

 

7.7.            Termination of Survey Status 

7.7.1.  If a surveyed dog is not presented for resurvey, the breed survey status expires at the end of the calendar year.

7.7.2.  Breed survey status is terminated by “breed survey status repeal.” Breed survey status is repealed upon application of the breed survey master or breed judge directed to the USA Breed Book Office. Breed survey status may be suspended during the time the application is being processed.

 

8.  BREED SURVEY CERTIFICATE AND BREED SURVEY BOOK 

The USA Breed Book Office returns to the owner in a timely manner the original documents submitted at the breed survey. Upon processing of the breed survey, the breed survey results will be published in the next possible issue of the USA magazine. The owner receives a translation of the breed survey report from the USA Breed Book Office. The breed survey result is noted on the original pedigree.

 Data on dogs surveyed during each year are published, separated by gender, in the USA Breed Survey Book. The Breed Survey Book contains comprehensive information for the dogs recommended or suitable for breeding, including physical characteristics and temperament. Together with the comments of the breed survey master with respect to breeding recommendations, this information makes this book a comprehensive and indispensable reference source for the serious breeder.
