September Adventures with Your Pooch

September Adventures with Your Pooch: Embrace the Fall Foliage

Have you seen the temperatures they are predicting for the metro next week? As the air starts to cool and the leaves begin to change, September marks the transition into a beautiful season – fall. It’s the perfect time to step outdoors and explore the wonders of nature with your furry friend. In this blog post, we’ll highlight some fantastic activities you can enjoy with your dog in September, making the most of this vibrant and refreshing season.

1. Leafy Strolls: Take leisurely walks through parks, forests, or your neighborhood to appreciate the changing colors of the leaves. Bring along a camera to capture the stunning fall foliage and your dog’s joyful expressions.

2. Picnic in the Park: Pack a picnic basket with your favorite autumn snacks, and find a cozy spot in the park. Your pup will love sharing a meal with you amidst the rustling leaves and crisp breeze.

How do I get started?

3. Camping Getaway: We love camping and hiking! Plan a dog-friendly camping trip. Camping offers an array of outdoor experiences, from hiking trails to starry nights by the campfire. Make sure to bring your pup’s favorite blanket or bed for added comfort.

4. Doggy Playdates: Organize playdates with friends or neighbors who have dogs. Let your furry companions romp and frolic together in a dog park or a secure backyard.

5. Agility Training: Our agility equipment here art Vera’s is always a huge hit! The dogs love to show us what they can do. Maybe its the treats they get when they do such a good job! Engaging your dog’s mind and body with agility training is so good for them. Set up a mini obstacle course in your yard for some fun challenges.

6. Visit a Pumpkin Patch: Fall is my favorite, and the pumpkin patches will be popping up before we know it!Explore a pumpkin patch together. Some patches are dog-friendly and make for great photo ops among the pumpkins. Just be mindful of your dog’s behavior around pumpkins – they might want to take a bite!

Remember to bring essentials like water, waste bags, and snacks for your pup during your adventures. Safety and comfort should always be a priority.

As September ushers in the beauty of autumn, seize the opportunity to create lasting memories with your canine companion. Whether you’re hiking in the woods, apple-picking, or simply enjoying a relaxing picnic, there’s no better way to embrace the charm of fall than with your four-legged friend by your side. So, grab your leash and set out on a paw-some September adventure together! πŸΎπŸ‚

Can CBD help a dog with stress?

Can CBD help a dog with stress?

Stressed or anxious dogs tend to shake, tremble, pant, pace, or they may try to run away or hide. A good sign to look for in a stressed or anxious dog is if their tail is tucked between their legs or their ears are back and flat against their head.

But what causes dogs to feel stressed? It could be a number of things. They may be afraid of loud noises like thunderstorms or fireworks. Maybe they are afraid of new people or new situations like getting groomed. Some dogs have separation anxiety or trauma from past experiences. There are so many things that can cause your dog to feel anxious or stressed. But how do you know if CBD is right for your pup?

A study published on ScienceDaily in May found that 89 percent of epileptic dogs given CBD for a clinical trial experienced reduced seizures. Additionally, a 2018 study published by Frontiers in Veterinary Science observed a “significant decrease” in pain as well as an increase in activity in dogs who were given CBD oil.

CBD dog treats and oils are designed for pets with anxiety and pain. CBD is a chemical compound that is found in Cannabis plants. It is completely separate from the psychoactive ingredient THC. CBD does not cause the same effects instead it just leaves them relaxed and feeling more calm. Humans can take CBD in a variety of forms (everything from oil to gummies to lotion to chocolate bars), but dogs are typically given CBD dog treats, which are simply dog treats infused with CBD. Some pet parents also give their dogs CBD oil or CBD capsules.If your dog is feeling stressed for whatever reason, giving CBD dog chews a try may be just what you are looking for.

We carry R&R CBD full spectrum dog chews at our facility. These chews contain 5MG of CBD per chew. These chews are known to help calm and manage stress. They can also relieve discomfort and help with sleeping habits.

Your dog’s stress and anxiety can be difficult to work through, and it can be heartbreaking to see your canine companion in distress. CBD oil may be able to help, but it is important to discuss this with your veterinarian to ensure it’s right for your pup!
