News: THE NEW CLASSES AT ORCHARD KENNELS IN WALWORTH ON TUESDAYS START AUGUST 21.
Here’s a great tip for TICK SEASON! As soon as your dog comes in from outside run a lint roller over the coat and any ticks that jumped onto your dog will come off on the roller! This works for short AND long coated dogs. Keep one in the car too so after a walk in the park you can use the roller before the dog gets back into the car.
WE ARE CLOSED SATURDAY AND MONDAY OF THE LABOR DAY WEEKEND.
Level III is 5:30 pm on Thursdays. Level III is advanced obedience and introduction to Rally.
If you can’t make your class you may join another class that is running that week. Check the schedule to see which class works best for you.
We don’t like to use chemicals on our lawns or our dogs whenever we can avoid it. What’s proven to work outside on lawns? Beneficial nematodes! Spray them onto the lawn and especially areas with long grass and bushes. They feed ONLY on pests such as ticks and fleas. Google “beneficial nematodes” and the websites will come up that sell them.
Want to stop your dog from jumping on your guests at the front door? Tell him to “Sit” every time you want to pet him or give a treat. Then tell him “Sit” next to the door and practice having someone come in and give a treat only if the dog is sitting. It works!
