  • The benefits of working with a professional dog training instructor.
  • Qualities to look for in a dog training instructor and what to avoid.
  • Why it is so important to teach students how a dog learns and the most important things we can teach them on this topic.
  • What is clicker training and why it is so useful when training a dog?
  • The power of using food as a reward when training a dog.
  • How we help students address undesirable behaviors, they experience with their dogs.
  • The four most valuable behaviors we teach our students to train their dogs.

If you want to learn about your dog and how to live together happily, you will want to listen to this show and read Linda’s book.

Websites We Like – Should I Leash My Dog?

Jenny D. Williams’s website http://www.shouldileashmydog.com/ offers some great resources that will help you assess whether or not your dog should be on a leash. Listed below is a short-link to an infographic that you can use to assess your dog. This visual decision-tree (see below) will give you a great way to assess if your dog and your community will be safe in various scenarios where you might allow your dog to be off-leash. If you frequent public areas where dogs are required to be off-leash but are often not, you might want to suggest they print this graphic as a poster to help educate people on what it means to be a responsible dog owner.

Maine Dog Trainers We Recommend

< A Short Link for this pagehttp://bit.ly/MEDogTrnrs >

The dog training professionals listed below are committed to training that is free of pain, force, and fear and are members of the Pet Professional Guild who have agreed to abide by PPG’s Guiding Principles, a critical factor in determining whom we recommend.

 

Products We Recommend – Earth Animal Tick & Flea Control

The days of not needing to worry about ticks are long gone as the reports of ticks, and tick-borne diseases are mounting.  Green Acres has declined to carry many of the products available on the market promoted for flea and tick control due to the nature of the chemicals in these products and the potential toxicity for your pets. We continue to believe that it is in your pet’s best interest to purchase products containing insecticides directly from your veterinarian as they are equipped to discuss the benefits of those products as well as the risks. However, we are pleased to now offer several products from Earth Animal for protection from ticks and fleas that are both effective and safe.

Who Is Earth Animal?

Earth Animal is an American company owned by veterinarian Dr. Bob Goldstein and Susan Goldstein. Since 1979 they have been dedicated to helping thousands of dog and cat parents achieve their pets’ health and healing objectives with natural products. If your dog is a fan of No-Hide® dog chews, the safe alternative to rawhide, then you are already familiar with Earth Animal and have an understanding of their commitment to quality.

Earth Animal’s Approach to Tick & Flea Control

Earth Animal flea and tick products are NOT toxic pesticides designed to kill fleas and ticks. Instead Earth Animal uses a two-step protocol using herbs, essential oils, flower essences, nutrients, vitamins and minerals to repel ticks and fleas from both the inside and outside of your pet. All of these products are 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

Green Acres Experience with Earth Animal

We started evaluating the Earth Animal flea and tick products with our own pets (and ourselves) late last summer. We liked the results we saw, along with the company’s satisfaction guarantee and commitment to quality and safety. We know that many of you, just like us, are looking for a non-toxic, yet effective product for keeping your precious pet free of fleas and ticks.

Earth Animal Flea & Tick Products In-Stock

Internal Products

Daily Herbal Internal Powder (Yeast Free) – This product is made with a blend of organic herbs to change your pet’s odor so that fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes do not like the scent of the blood. This odor change is undetectable to humans.

Daily Internal Powder – Made with a blend of vitamins, nutrients, and brewer’s yeast that changes your pet’s odor so that fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes do not like the scent of the blood, thus taking your pet off the menu. This odor change is undetectable to humans.

Organic Daily Herbal Drops – Made with a blend of organic herbs to help guard your pet against fleas and ticks. These drops also help to quiet reactions from flea bites.

 

 

External Products

Flea & Tick Collar – This natural alternative to synthetic chemical collars is infused with herbs and essential oils and has a fresh, minty fragrance. The key ingredients are Cedarwood Oil and Peppermint Oil, which is non-offensive to our pets but repulsive to fleas, ticks, and other biting insects.

Flea & Tick Spot-On – This is the alternative to topical repellents made with chemicals and insecticides.  It is a natural blend of Peppermint oil, Cedarwood oil and Almond oil which are non-offensive to our pets but repel fleas, ticks, and other biting insects.

Herbal Bug Spray – Made with a blend of essential oils, this spray helps to guard against fleas, ticks, and other biting insects, while remaining free of DEET and other pesticides and insecticides,

It is important to remember that Earth Animal products are designed to repel fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes as opposed to many other products that contain insecticides which are intended to kill these pests.
