Community alert – Canine distemper

Health alert – Canine Distemper (or in German “Staube”) has been found in Neustadt (about one hour from Nuremberg). There is a vaccine against it but because it was mostly eradicated vaccinations mostly ceased. But now it’s maybe making a comeback. Please see your vet for a vaccine.

One example of our personalized services

One example of our personalized services – Bailey is albino and has horrible eyesight. In addition, she is absolutely goofy and clumsy. But she LOVES when we play with the Nerf Dog gun, so I’ve learned the best way to play with her so she’s able to get the ball and feel proud of herself! Either I shoot the ball at the ground so she hears it bouncing or I get her to run in that direction first so it’s easier for her

Compared to her normally

Safety Reminder!!

Safety reminder – Sadly there are terrible people out there. Here is one of the police warnings for dog owners – someone was putting nails in sausages to harm or even kill dogs. This is not an infrequent occurrence – please try to be vigilant about what your dog is sniffing and keep them away from garbage and suspicious piles of food

2 month progress update on Edgar

About two months ago Edgar was showing his teeth and barking and growling at me, and now he wants to cuddle with me and gets excited anytime he sees me. The best part is that he has learned a great amount of self confidence and he can now socialize easily with other dogs and we are walking without a leash! We even went through the forest where he ran next to me on the bike without a leash! He is doing amazing and I am so proud of him and his parents who foster his success.

Guess the breed!

We are welcoming Bailey into the Mom & Dog fold; isn’t she gorgeous?! And she has a lovely personality to boot. Take a gander and guess the breed! She is certainly one of a kind! Answer is in the caption

She is an albino doberman!
