The Water Dogs Are Coming!

More Turkey Dogs are coming - 18 Golden Retrievers ( 10 boys and 8 girls) will be arriving soon from Istanbul. The TD9s will be known as the Water Dogs (cause it's summer, right?) and among their names are Tadpole, River, Splash, Minnow and FlipFlop. We'll keep you posted on the Water Dogs' arrival.

Orphan of the Month

Cracker Jack is the June Orphan of the Month.
This sweet boy was a TD3 and was adopted last summer but his family didn't have time for him. He's looking for a family to love. Watch his video to learn more about what he is looking for in an adoptive home.
Heat Stroke and Heat Exhaustion in Dogs:
What to Look For
Excessive panting and signs of discomfort indicate 
overheating. Dogs eliminate heat by panting. When panting
isn't enough, their body temperature rises. Check out this petmd.com article for more information on what to watch for
and what immediate steps to take to help your dog.

Teaching Doorway Manners

If your dog takes the opportunity to slip out the door and hit the ground running, this article is for you! Boredom and lack of exercise are the main  
reasons they do this and with Boundary Training, things will improve. Tips on teaching new behavior are available in this DiamondsintheRuff.com article.
