Vacation | Where to Leave your Dog

Who do you leave your dog with when your on Vacation? 

As an outdoor enthusiast and a big fan of travel, I often left my dog at home in the loving hands of my parents and sisters. But then again, it just came to my mind, what if there's nobody home to take care of my precious little monster? Have you ever think of that? 

I know how much you love your dog. I also love them the same way. Just like having your own child, you don't want to leave them somewhere or to someone you don't trust. Let me give you some idea where you can leave your dog in case there's no one to take care of him/her. 

Is this familiar? Yes! The best place to leave your dog is in a petshop. My dog is a loyal client in Caminade Clinic. One time, I observe a couple of poodle dog caged in the clinic. I ask the doctor what happened to them, because they seems to be in a good shape. That's the time I discover that Camidade Petshop also accept pet boarders. They feed and take care of your dog while your away on a vacation. How great is that?

I don't know if other petshop offer this kind of amenities, but I'm pretty sure Caminade does. Now if your a travel junkie with a cute adorable pet that needs to be left behind, you can consider leaving them in Caminade Petshop or if you have other Petshop in your mind, you can ask them about this.

Dog Grooming

I have a dog. Then what?

Having a dog, means responsibility on your part. One thing you need to know when having a companion like dog is how to groom them. Now here's a quick tip on dog grooming.

  • Research your dog's breed or coat type. Finding your dog's breed and coat type will help you determine what tools to use during your grooming session. 
  • Make grooming session pleasant and short. Provide your dog with plenty of treats or do anything that can make your dog relax and calm during the session.
  • If you want your dog to enjoy grooming, it is best to start train them during puppyhood.
  • If your dog is afraid of being groomed and will bite or struggle, you may want to consider hiring a local dog trainer to teach you how to make grooming an enjoyable experience for your dog through a systematic desensitization protocol.
  • Avoid frequent bathing of your dog. There are other types of dogs that need not to be bathed more than once every 4-6 weeks.
  • Brush your dog's teeth everyday. There are toothbrushes available for dogs. 
  • Trim dog's nails weekly. If you don't know how, leave it to the pro's. 
  • Visit a veterinarian if you see any signs of an unhealthy coat or skin problems - bald spots, scaly patches, excessive dryness or oiliness, open sores of any kind, hot spots, etc. These coat problems can be symptoms of underlying problems ranging from dietary deficiencies to allergies, extreme stress, or hypothyroidism.

Moving On

So its been quite here for awhile. Let's just say I was mourning for my Oreo. I never thought this would happen. I built this blog for him, for us. All I post here is related to the knowledge I acquire from raising a dog like Oreo and from both our experience. I feel sad about what happen, we all are. But the thing is,  we need to move on. I guess I have to start here. 

What happen was painful for us. But we come to accept it. May be there's far more good reason why that happen. Days after Oreo died, I send a message to the person who gave Oreo to me, Tolets. Fortunately, right now, Oreo's mom is pregnant again with another puppies. He told me he will give me another pup when it give birth this October. 

I know no other puppy can replace Oreo. But I'm willing to start over again. This time, I'll make sure I do my best to keep it alive and happy! :)

I will still be updating this blog. This will keep me reminded that once in my life, I had a wonderful dog that leave a deep mark in our hearts.

May you Rest in Peace Baby... We will surely miss you!
