I tried to volunteer at the Hendricks County Animal Control and was shocked to discover they do not allow volunteers. I am now a member of a group that is working to make changes at Animal Control. We would like to have the Humane Society help Animal Control with volunteers, adoptions, etc. Apparently this is a much more difficult task than I originally thought.
A member of the group I joined has created a Facebook page that outlines some of the problems.
We are just… Continue

Pick a training method. Any training method and there will be one common theme through them all. Consistency. I train with alot of dogs and people (the people are the hardest) and always communicating with your dog in the same way makes everyone's job easier. Having the words mean the same thing each time along with the same results for following them or not following is paramount in working with your dog.
Let's take the command "Come" as an example. If I always want my dog to come… Continue

The Ewoks of the Dog World Continue
By Dr. Anndrea Kapke
Olive Branch Parke Veterinary Clinic
Yorkshire Terriers are those little dogs that look like Star Wars Ewoks that you see peeking out of ladies’ purses. Yorkies have long, straight, glossy hair coats that are described as blue and tan (grey or black and tan for us non-dog-show types.) The Yorkshire Terrier breed…

When you open yourself up to new adventures, it's often surprising the startling things that can come your way. I have Meniere's Disease, which is permanent and progressive and has left me with profound hearing loss and balance issues.. That's the bad news.
The good news is continuing to grow.
Because of the depression and isolation I felt when I had to quit my hearing intensive job at WISH-TV several years ago, I knew I needed help. Not with more pills or booze or… Continue

Exercising your dog is one of the most important things you can do to help your pet be happy and healthy. Exercise can help alleviate stress and anxiety just as it does with people. Low energy dogs are easiest to exercise as a just a nice walk around the block once daily will give them what they need. Where problems arise is the higher energy dogs. A single walk might not be enough to satisfy their craving for physical activity.

Good morning to all you Pet Pals People. There is tons of new things on the website. New events, videos and commentary along with the January episode, if you haven't caught it yet. The show was number 1 in the time slot and it was all due to Pet Pals People spreading the word. Invite your friends, relatives, co-workers, the mailman (well you get the idea) to join and check all the new stuff.

All have different requirements and different organizations have different requirements. The American Kennel Club only allows purebred dogs to participate in their competitions while the United Kennel Club allows registration and participating in all of their sports by mix-breed dogs.
Schutzhund competition is open to any… Continue
