Canine Health Tips of the Week
NEW GUIDELINES FOR CANINE AND FELINE DIETS RELEASED

The most respected source of science-based information in the U.S., the National Research Council, has issued a new report this fall with updated guidelines for feeding dogs and cats.  Along with the new guidelines is an assessment that some 25 percent of all pet cats and dogs in America are obese and need to lose weight.  Just like their humans, excessively portly pooches run the risk of diabetes, heart disease and other ailments.

The new report, replacing one done in the 1980s, looks at nutritional needs in relation to a dog's activity level and stage in life, two key influencing factors.  A quick reference list of daily calorie recommendations and essential vitamin and mineral requirements for dogs and cats, as well as signs that a pet may be deficient in a certain vitamin or mineral, is provided online at the Petdoor, along with more on keeping your pet healthy.

Your dog's nutrition is a key to his or her health, so check this out today.

WORKING DOGS IN THE SPOTLIGHT                                              [ Top ]
---------------------------------------------------------


Dog from Down Under Valued World-wide
KELPIES' ABILITIES AS WORKING DOGS GIVE THEM BIG APPEAL

Kelpies aren't just Aussie dogs anymore, limited to Down Under.  This unique breed of working dog developed in Australia for sheep and cattle herding is now found around the world in both cold and warm climates.  And they're demonstrating their value both in their work and in the price they cost.

Some of the remarkable jobs they do include herding llamas in North Dakota, rounding up horses in Canada, herding reindeer in Norway and doing avalanche work in Switzerland.  The key to the breed's success is its adaptability, says John Elston, a South Australia breeder.

CANINE LINK OF THE WEEK:
--------------------------------------------
The Link of the Week aims to help you improve your dog's skills, behavior and activities, with occasional special features on other topics of interest for working dog owners. No matter your breed, sports or training interest, the link should be worthwhile.

Breeding is always a gamble

PICKING PUPPIES FOR A WORKING PROGRAM IS SPECIAL

-----
When a litter of pups in born, the author of this featured link article begins an active program of puppy observation, starting with how aggressive pups are in gaining and keeping one of its mother's teats.  Later, at about 7 weeks, he looks for how a pup relates to him as a potential trainer and working partner.  Does a pup look him in the eye and communicate a message, "Okay, what are we going to do next?"

These are some of the ideas in this online article.  Find the newest featured link on the right side of the WorkingDogWeb home page.
