How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

If you’re like me, your pets have become family members. When you can’t be home for them, whether it’s because of work, vacation or other obligations, you want them taken care of with the same love and attention you give them. That’s exactly what I will do as your overnight dog sitter because I love dogs. I have loved dogs since childhood, and they have become an important part of our family. I have a loving 14 1/2 year old Hungarian puli named Buksi. All of our dogs have lived long, healthy lives because of the love and attention we give them throughout their lives. We walk them regularly, they eat a healthy diet of Science Diet dog food, and they get their regular check-ups at our established vet, Nall Hills Animal Hospital.

 

My background includes business development and ownership, marketing communications, direct sales, and Real Estate. I have an MBA in Marketing from Avila University and more than 20 years of career expertise in the corporate world as well as individual business ownership.

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

I would like to know your dog’s health history and vet contact information prior to sitting him or her. If your dog has any special dog beds, or other sleeping arrangements, please let me know as well. I would also like you to bring your dog’s favorite dog food, toys, dog collar with ID tags and Rabies Vaccination tag, dog leash, and any other items they need for their overnight stays.

 

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?

Yes, I have a reliable transportation. I will always ask for your vet’s contact information should they require medical attention.

 

Are you comfortable administering medication?

Yes, I administer medication to my 14 1/2 year Hungarian puli daily.

 

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

I work from home, so your dog will be with me during the day and all night.

 

If you have a backyard, please describe it.

Very large, fenced in backyard – nice flat yard. Lots of room for your dog to run and play.

Where will my dog sleep?

Inside, on nice warm blankets or even a dog bed in our large downstairs family room.

 

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.

Around the Shannon Valley neighborhood. Very safe and nice area with sidewalks.

Introducing Two ‘Brushless’ Dental Solutions for Pets

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Introducing Two ‘Brushless’ Dental Solutions for Pets

kissable breath foam and water additive combo 

Santa Monica, CA October 28, 2013 – Do you brush your dog’s teeth? We didn’t think so! Don’t worry, you’re not alone. More than 60% of dog owners never brush their dog’s teeth. The main reason is that it’s just too difficult.

To help improve the state of canine oral hygiene Kissable has launched two new ‘Brushless’ Dental Solutions to make dental care easy for the owner and painless for the pooch. Instant Fresh Breath Foam adheres to teeth to gently clean, sanitize and loosen plaque build-up without using a toothbrush!  Oral Care Water Additive is a super-easy-to-administer liquid. Just add a capful to your pet’s water. No toothbrush required.

 

Instant Fresh Breath Foam

 

This all natural breath foamer combines the deodorizing powers of baking soda and peppermint with the anti-bacterial power of aloe vera. All promote excellent oral cleanliness which results in fresher breath. The sweet-tasting minty foam immediately adheres to teeth to gently clean, sanitize and loosen plaque build-up without using a toothbrush| 8oz

 

Oral Care Water Additive

 

Helps loosen plaque build-up and freshens breath while your pet drinks from the water bowl. Just add a capful to your pet’s drinking water when you refill the bowl and the ingredients in the product do the rest. When the pet drinks from their water bowl, the liquid will pass over the teeth and gums leaving behind ingredients that promote fresh breath and oral cleanliness| 16oz

Ecowelldog donates a portion of proceeds from the sale of its products to Canine Companions for Independence, a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly-trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships.

Dog Walker’s Tool Vest Gets Fabulous First Review.

 

“Really enjoying my new Dog Walker’s Tool Vest. It has plenty of pockets for carrying my cell phone, camera, poop bags, treats and anything else that you need. It’s not heavy so its perfect for the fall but can also be layered over heavier clothes. It also has a spot for water bottles in the back and the ability to clip something to it as well, love this vest!”

OPPD K-9 Handlers stay busy fighting crime year-round

Each year, the Overland Park Police Department’s Canine Unit (K-9 teams) gets busier and busier with patrol and tactical responses. In fact, in 2012 the team was deployed 272 times, according to Officer and K-9 Trainer Cory Flaming. This ranges from a vehicle stop to a search warrant, or even a large event.

The OPPD Canine Unit also had 127 Patrol Deployments during 2012 which include Criminal Apprehension Utilization like tracks, building searches, felony car stops, area searches, etc. In addition, there were 145 Detection Deployments, which are Narcotics/Explosive searches.

Established in 1989, the OPPD K-9 team is currently assigned to the Emergency Services Section within the OPPD. The department currently has three Police Service Dog (PSD) teams; Officer Justin Doherty with K-9 Deuce, a 10-year old Belgium Malinois certified in narcotics detection and patrol, Officer Ben Hardin with K-9 Cezar, a 6-year old German Shepherd certified in narcotics detection and patrol, and Officer K-9 Trainer Cory Flaming with K-9 Mack, a 3-year old Belgium Malinois certified in explosive detection and patrol. The K-9 Handlers are cross trained in each of these disciplines and respond not only with their assigned K-9’s but also must be qualified to serve as a SWAT/WMD Operator.

Canine handlers must care for their K-9 partner 24 hours a day, so they stay at home with them. Because they are not considered pets, they are kenneled while away from work at the handler’s home. Yet the city pays for a large outdoor and indoor kennel which is installed at the handler’s residence.

When an officer wants to become a canine handler, they go through a new hiring process within the department. It includes a resume, physical, and several interviews including family and neighbors. Once passed, they must also complete a 10-week basic course with their assigned K-9. At the end of the course, they must also pass a difficult certification which is then repeated annually.

As a special service to our local area, all K-9 Teams provide K-9 demonstrations on a regular basis for organizations such as “Pet Pals” at the Deanna Rose Farmstead or “Paws in the Park” at Shawnee Mission Park. As local residents, we are very fortunate to have such a dedicated team to assist us in effectively fighting crime in our community.
