The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, one of the most famous working dog events in the world, gets underway March 1 in Anchorage with the ceremonial start.   However, due to an unusually warm winter in Alaska, the restart is planned for March 3 in Fairbanks.  The change in routh is intended for the safety of dogs and mushers.  See the 2003 trail here:

Canine Health Tips of the Week
CONTRASTING GRAIN AND MEAT DIETS FOR DOGS

Dog owners often have strong feelings about the types of foods they give their canine companions.  Dry or moist?  Bagged or canned?  Natural or commercial? Should supplements be added?  The following article, from a site managed by veterinarians, is offered as “food for thought” about dogs’ diets.

THREE-YEAR RABIES SHOT OPTION
Read the story of a dog lover who believes people need to know that older dogs can receive the three-year rabies shot rather than the annual one, at least in Colorado… and why he believes that is better for their health.

WORKING DOGS IN THE SPOTLIGHT
---------------------------------------------------------
DOG TALE No. 1

Termite-sniffing Dog
JACKIE MAY BE THE LUCKIEST DOG ALIVE

-----
Not long ago, Jackie the Jack Russell Terrier was in rescue kennel without a home of his own. Now he’s a working partner at ZipZap Termite and Pest Control, successfully trained to sniff out termites and help the company find potential damage to homes.  In fact, Jackie may be the first termite-locator dog in
Missouri. 

Among the training methods is a unique “wheel” with items with different smells, pictured.  Discover what owner Jeffrey Preece had to learn to help Jackie be successful in this unique canine career.

DOG TALE No. 2
A Collie Named Booker
DANCING DOGS, OWNERS GO FOR GOLD

Perhaps no dog sport or activity is more enchanting than Canine Freestyle, often called “dancing with dogs.”  Combining music and dance steps with obedience training results in a chance for dog owners to bond with their canines in a truly remarkable and enjoyable way.  Or so one might judge from the smiles on the faces of owners and dogs alike.   Meet Jennie and her collie Booker as well as Deb and her Welsh corgis Oliver and Maggie and other club members, and enjoy a truly charming photo of the sport.

HOW TO SPEAK DOG
By Stanley Coren

----------------------
Now in paperback is a book that readers call “a canine translator” – a volume that provides a wealth of insights on how dogs communicate and how we often misread what they are saying.  Coren, known for his earlier book, The Intelligence of Dogs, here explores among other topics the numbers of words that dogs can learn and how to improve training through better knowledge of canine “doggish” communication.

To examine and order this book, just click through the link on the left side of the WorkingDogWeb home page.

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.
-----
COMMUNICATE BETTER WITH YOUR DOGS
-----
In keeping with the featured book, How to Speak Dog, we offer two “featured links” to resources on dog communication.  For example, one article suggests talking frequently to your dog from the day the dog arrives at your home.  The second link offers recommendations on steps you can take to communicate to your dog with body language, more.  Find the link on the right side of the WorkingDogWeb.com home page.
