4 IS PLASTIC SAFE IN DOG BOWLS There are a wide variety of dog bowls on the market - plastic ones, slow down eating ones, silicon ones, stainless steel ones, ceramic ones, stoneware ones, and yes, even paper ones and ones made of sugar cane. But how do you know if your dog bowl is safe? We've done a bit of research on the different types of dog food bowls on the market...here's what we found: PLASTIC Some of the most popular dog bowls on the market are plastic. But unknown to many, they can be the most dangerous bowls with which to feed and water your pet! There are a couple of reasons for this: One reason is that plastics scratch and those little crevices can harbor unhealthy bacteria, that even a good safe cleaning can't deter. In addition, there are many reports in the news that plastics can emit chemicals like Bisphenal A, or BPA. Every few years, articles regarding the safety of plastics hit the news headlines most recently in the form of reports of a chemical found in baby and sports bottles: Bisphenal A, or BPA. What is BPA? The EWG says, "bisphenol a (BPA), a synthetic estrogen used to harden polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resin, is the focus of a growing number of research studies and legislative actions, reflecting mounting scientific evidence that it causes serious and sometimes irreversible damage to health, even at the low doses to which people are routinely exposed." The Environmental Working Group also goes on to say..."in laboratory tests, trace BPA exposure has been shown to disrupt the endocrine system and trigger a wide variety of disorders, including chromosomal and reproductive system abnormalities, impaired brain and neurological functions, cancer, cardiovascular system damage, adult-onset diabetes, early puberty, obesity and resistance to chemotherapy." So if they are having this kind of effect on humans, imagine what they are doing to our little dog bodies! Plastics can also emit dangerous Phthalates, according to the EWG. "These chemicals, called plasticizers, are a group of industrial chemicals used to make plastics like polyvinyl chloride (PVC) more flexible or resilient and also as solvents. Phthalates are nearly ubiquitous in modern society, found in, among other things, toys, food packaging, hoses, raincoats, shower curtains, vinyl flooring, wall coverings, lubricants, adhesives, detergents, nail polish, hair spray and shampoo." In addition, HealthyStuff.org, an organization who tests many pet products for levels of lead, chlorine, arsenic and more, indicates that even though some plastic pet bowls may be BPA free and certified as FDA food safe, some may contain medium levels of lead. And these chemicals can leach from plastic containers into your dog's food, potentially exposing them to dangerous chemicals with harmful side affects. There are some safe food plastics, and generally speaking most human plastics containers can be identified by their recycling codes that can help you find the safe ones. But the pet industry is slow to add this helpful id tool to pet products, so we are left not knowing what plastic pet dish is safe and which is not, or taking the word of the manufacturer. Yes, there are some safe plastic bowls, but how do you know for sure, without having them tested in a trusted lab?
5 STONEWARE According to HealthyStuff.org some stoneware pet bowls may contain medium levels of dangerous lead that could be harmful to your dog. In 1973, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency began phasing out leaded gasoline, a process that was to drag on until Lead was banned in household paint in As a result, according to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, lead levels in the blood of American children have dropped by 86 percent since the late 1970s." The EWG says..."the insidious symptoms of slow lead poisoning -- impaired intellect, memory loss, mood swings, infertility, nerve, joint and muscle disorders, cardiovascular, skeletal, kidney and renal problems and possibly cancer -- were not fully recognized until the late 20th century. Some manufacturers tout their stoneware bowls as lead free. But, while HealthStuff.org is sharing a lot of research about stoneware pet bowls, they have yet to test every bowl on the market. So why potentially expose your dog to such a dangerous chemical? SILICONE Lately we've been seeing several silicone based pet food bowls hit the market. While they are deemed made of FDA approved food based silicone, we are with the the 'jury is still out,' pack on this new method of feeding. According to Wikipedia, silicones are largely-inert, man-made compounds with a wide variety of forms and uses. Typically heat-resistant, nonstick, and rubber-like, they are commonly used in cookware, medical applications, sealants, adhesives, lubricants, insulation, and breast implants. Over the years, we've read about the problems women have had with silicone breast implants, (the same stuff used to create food safe silicone bowls). So many dangers have been found with the various methods we use for feeding, that I'm of the 'better safe than sorry" set. Time will tell... CERAMIC Many ceramic dog bowls can be a good choice if you do your homework and select carefully. Some glazes used to coat the dog bowl could contain lead and other chemicals. So if you decide to use a ceramic bowl make certain it is intended for food use and that it is coated with a lead free glaze. And also be certain to check the bowl often for little cracks in the glaze, that can not only harbor bacteria, but can also potentially be ingested if cracked or chipped. SUGAR CANE AND CORN Many disposable pet bowls made of sugar cane and corn are hitting the market. Patterned after human disposable paper plates and made from sugar cane or corn, these pet bowls are touted as being very eco-friendly and green, as well as safe for dogs. Many say after several uses, you can put them into your compost pile to biodegrade, which would cut down on added waste to landfills, and the inability to actually biodegrade when buried under all that trash at the landfill. Since sugar cane and corn in very low ingestion levels is not toxic or dangerous for dogs, we feel these dishes would be a nice emergency or travel option for dogs. We would keep a watchful eye on my sis, Gracie, however, since she would perhaps be apt to eat something like a bowl made of sugar cane...she's like that you know :) And we know that anything like this in large proportions wouldn't be good for her intestinal tract. STAINLESS STEEL Over many years, stainless steel has be proven to be the safest material for making and storing foods. It is durable, sanitary, rust-free, and non-leaching. And the best part is that they can last a lifetime, and save you money! In their tips to avoid certain chemical exposure, the EWG recommends in many instances to replace non-safe plastics with stainless steel. WHAT TO USE! So what's a dog to do? We recommend going stainless steel. It is widely believed to be the absolute safest dog food and water dispensing bowl. It's what we use for all our meals and water, whether at home or on the road, for us pups and our kittie bros. You can purchase many sizes and types of stainless steel dog bowls, including slow down eating and non-skid, small or gigantic! Properly cared for stainless steel pet bowls won't harbor dangerous bacteria, and they don't emit dangerous chemicals. Be sure to clean your stainless steel bowl after every use to ward off potential illness from bacteria, and don't clean it with any abrasive material like steel wool. Just use a safe eco-friendly dish soap and hot water, or better yet, do what we do, clean with a nice mixture of vinegar and water.
9 Veterinarians, health officials and dog owners are alarmed by the mysterious recent deaths of four dogs in Ohio. Some experts suspect the dogs may have died a few days after exposure to a virus that's normally found in pigs. Three dogs in the Cincinnati area and a fourth dog near Akron died in August after exhibiting symptoms that included vomiting, bloody diarrhea, weight loss and lethargy, according to the Columbus Dispatch. "We feel obligated to make sure pet owners are aware this is happening," Erica Hawkins, communications director for the Ohio Department of Agriculture, told the Dispatch. "Supportive therapies can be helpful if started early enough." [10 Deadly Diseases That Hopped Across Species] The three dogs from Cincinnati died last month after staying in the same kennel. The Akron dog that died was one of several in the Akron-Canton area that showed the same symptoms. A stool sample from the Akron dog tested positive for canine circovirus, a recently isolated virus. A new virus emerges Circoviruses are spherical viruses (grouped within the family Circoviridae) that are commonly found in birds, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) publication Emerging Infectious Diseases. Until recently, the only mammals known to carry circoviruses were pigs. But in 2012, a 1-year-old dog in California was brought to the University of California, Davis, Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital after being kenneled for three weeks. The dog had bloody diarrhea and was vomiting; because of the poor prognosis, the dog was euthanized and its tissue was sampled to determine the cause of death. The tissue analysis showed that the dog had a new type of circovirus named DogCV. "Our results indicate that circovirus, alone or in co-infection with other pathogens, might contribute to illness and death in dogs," the report stated. Not all infected dogs died, and the virus has been seen in dogs that appear healthy, indicating that some dogs may have an immunity to the virus. Zoonosis: Making the jump Viruses and bacteria that commonly infect just one animal species can evolve and "jump" from that species to another; this process is known as zoonosis. Medical experts believe that influenza, HIV, Ebola and dozens of other zoonotic diseases once only infected pigs, apes or other animals, but these viruses are now common among humans. Bats, in particular, are known as carriers of viral infections: Recent research suggests bats are reservoirs for more than 60 viruses that can also infect humans, and host more viruses per species than even rodents do. The Ohio Department of Agriculture is continuing to investigate the death of the four dogs in the state. "The laboratory confirmation [of circovirus] is important because the virus is newly isolated, however we are not prepared at this time to confirm that canine circovirus is the cause of the dog illnesses," state veterinarian Dr. Tony Forshey said in a statement. "Because the symptoms being exhibited can also be linked to other known illnesses, additional analysis and information is needed to determine if this virus alone or in co-infection contributes to illness and death in dogs." Dog owners are advised to take normal precautions with their pets such as watching for signs of any disease and to contact their vet if they notice any symptoms of illness. "The most important thing dog owners can do is call their veterinarian if they have concerns about the health of their pets," Forshey said. "Your veterinarian is the best person to help determine if your animal is ill and what steps should be taken to help them recover."
11 DANGEROUS FOOD If you witness your pet consuming material that you suspect might be toxic, do not hesitate to seek emergency assistance, even if you do not notice any adverse effects. Sometimes, even if poisoned, an animal may appear normal for several hours or for days after the incident Alcoholic beverages Can cause intoxication, coma, and death Avocado Contain Persin, which can cause vomiting and diarrhea in dogs Chocolate Coffee Fatty foods Macadamia nuts Mouldy or spoiled foods Toxic levels possible with the ingestion of 1 ounce per 1 pound of body weight Toxic and affect the heart and nervous systems Can cause pancreatitis. Can negatively affect multiple systems due to an as-yet-unidentified substance Contain multiple toxins causing vomiting and diarrhea Onions, onion powder Can lead to a severe case of hemolytic anemia whereby the blood doesn't carry enough oxygen to all parts of the dog's body Raisins and grapes Can lead to kidney damage and death if consumed in a large enough quantity Pure Salt If eaten in large quantities it may lead to electrolyte imbalances Raw Yeast dough It will expand and produce gas in the digestive system, causing pain and possible rupture of the stomach or intestines Garlic Any sugar free product Can damage red blood cells and cause anemia Might contain xylitol and can cause liver damage and death Bones Pose a choking risk or can become lodged in the digestive tract Mushrooms Contain toxins, which may affect multiple systems in the body, cause shock, and result in death.

23 JUDGING THE JUDGES. By Bo Bengtson We ve all done it. We may know it s not exactly fair, but it s frankly too much fun to abstain. It doesn t matter if you re an old hand or a rank novice as soon as you plop down at ringside and start watching the dogs, you re magically transformed into a judge. Not just any judge, either, but one with powers far superior to those of whoever happens to be handing out the ribbons in the ring that day. You don t have to be bothered by anything as mundane as trying to balance faults and virtues; you can make snap decisions in a matter of seconds. You may say with absolute certainty, even without an up-close view of the dogs, that this one is much better than that one. You know absolutely that the famous dog that s done so much winning should be placed in a pet home, and you are convinced, without a moment s doubt, that the judge puts up all those professional handlers simply because he or she is a total crook. Best of all, since you re not actually making the decisions, you can t be held accountable by anyone: not the exhibitors, not the club and sometimes not even to the breed standard. Your word is your law, and that s all that matters. As Alice Roosevelt famously said, If you ve got nothing nice to say, come sit by me. It s much more fun to make snarky comments than utter sweet platitudes, we all know that, and as long as you re aware that the spectator sport of judging the judges doesn t necessarily reflect what s happening in the ring, go ahead and indulge. Just be a little careful who overhears what you re saying, and remember that one day you may be standing in the ring yourself, making actual decisions and subjecting yourself to the same ringside scrutiny. You will find, as so many have done before you, that the middle of the ring is a lonely place to be and that the responsibility of awarding the ribbons can be a heavy one. Envied, Admired and Deplored No position in dogs is as hotly envied, admired and deplored often nearly simultaneously, by the same people as that of the judge. Yet far too little has been said about the practical side of dog show judging, so let me tell you a little about it. I don t judge that much, and I mostly stick to a few chosen breeds where I m confident enough in my experience that I can live with whatever anyone else may think. Frankly, after more than 35 years of judging, I m pretty ambivalent about the whole experience. If, after you ve read this, you wonder why on earth so many people are so anxious to become judges, then you ve reached the point where I am. To begin with, as an AKC judge you re always watched, and you always have to be on your best behavior. An offhand remark, a word to the wrong person at the wrong time, applauding any dog while you re sitting at ringside, even helping a friend hold a dog by the leash for a minute it can all be misconstrued and result in action from AKC or worse, in the belief among exhibitors that you re not playing by the book. For many of us, that we re not able to relax and function the way we normally would among friends, not even when we go as spectators to a dog show, can be enough to make us quit judging. And of course, if you re a judge who also shows your own dogs, any win you take will be automatically suspicious even though at the same time many complain about the judges lacking hands-on experience. A judging appointment, for me, usually begins by getting up at 3 a.m. to catch a morning flight at LAX. Living in California and judging in the eastern or central time zones means starting early and arriving late. This is a big country, usually there s a layover, you may lose two or three hours time difference, and in case you miss your connection you ve got to make sure you still reach your destination that night. I love California, but it s not a good place to live if you want to judge out of state. Most trips take at least 10 to 12 hours from door to door. Active judges are used to airports and flying. I don t mind either: give me a good book and a seat in an emergency row with plenty of leg room, and I won t join the crowds who complain about flying. The fact that the airlines usually get us where we want to go a lot faster at a lower cost than anyone could reasonably have expected in the past is something I m profoundly grateful for. And if you re lucky, there s a shuttle and an air-conditioned hotel room waiting when you land. So far, so good. Too Hot for Judging? Getting up to judge at what s 3 or 4 a.m. at home isn t that bad either, once you get used to it. What I find difficult to accept, however, is the idea of judging 150 to 175 dogs, maybe for three or four days in a row, in humid and/or hot temperatures. This is, at least in my book, a serious reason for not wanting to judge dogs at all. Is there any other activity where the participants, many of them no longer in their first flush of youth, are expected to stand, walk and bend over for six to eight hours per day, often in blinding sun, while wearing at least the male judges long pants, a buttoned-up shirt, a tie and preferably a jacket, even when it s hot and muggy, all the while trying to stay focused, make crisp decisions and project an air of cool detachment?
24 Of course I can t speak for the women judges. At least they can have bare arms and legs, but I m sure I ll hear from some of them telling me their judging outfits are far more uncomfortable than those of any man. In any case, neither men nor women can wear hats with a wide, shading brim because of the concern that some dogs or exhibitors might object. (We don t have the chutzpah of the late, great judge Mary Nelson Stephenson, who simply asked each class of exhibitors if anyone minded her large straw hat. If anyone was dumb enough to admit they did, they were promptly excused from the ring.) Sure, the handlers are in the same position, but if they are professionals they get paid to do this, and if they are not they can simply decide to sit out the day in the shade with a cool drink if they feel like it. Most judges don t get paid, and even those who do generally earn less than an average-level salary. Many of us, in fact, are out of pocket due to the many small travel expenses you feel embarrassed to bill the host club for. The only other activity I can think of in which the participants are as unsuitably dressed as we are would be certain equestrian events. Reportedly even the dressage riders formal, archaic uniform is up for redesign, but if you ve visited, for example, the Santa Barbara Horse Show, you may have watched with amusement as the female judges try to navigate the arena s tanbark in high heels and evening gowns. That s a different kind of discomfort, however, and frankly I don t think horse show judges are nearly as active physically as dog show judges. Dangerous for Your Health When the temperature creeps close to three digits, it s actually dangerous for the judges health. We all take great precautions for keeping our dogs out of the sun, and rightly so, but they are in the ring just a few minutes, so spare a thought for the poor judge who has to be out there for several hours at a time. It s surprising that we haven t come up with a comfortable, cool, yet smart outfit especially for dog shows on hot days. If the golf pros can look the way they do, why can t we? (And they make a whole lot more money than anyone in dogs!) I m not sure I m ready to see judges wearing shorts, but certainly short-sleeved shirts, open at the neck, with or without a loose tie, should be OK, and of course no jacket unless it s required for warmth or unless the show is inside a properly air-conditioned building. Maybe the casual outfits worn at dog shows in Europe are one reason the sport seems to be so much more popular than over here? It s a thought. I m not going to complain about rain and cold. I m a hot-weather guy (why else would I live in California?) but you can protect yourself with extra layers and rain attire when necessary, and moving around while judging keeps you warm. However, you can most emphatically not take off enough clothes to make you comfortable when it s hot! So if there s so much to deal with a merciless ringside, an ever-watchful AKC, complicated travel arrangements, jet lag and frequently great physical discomfort why do so many want so badly to become judges? It really beats me. There s the ego trip, certainly: it s nice to be officially recognized as an expert on anything, and being asked to adjudicate is for that reason always a compliment. (It might be humbling for those of us who are judges to realize that we re often asked more for practical reasons than because anyone necessarily thinks we re brilliant, however.) But yes, being elected by the membership to judge a specialty really is a great honor, no question about that. Certainly everyone appreciates receiving compliments on their judging. At least the winner will always think you re great, and usually tells you so. My least favorite compliment, however, is the one that comes from a certain kind of exhibitor who jumps in the air and shouts, Finally, an honest judge! You just know that this dog doesn t usually win much, and honesty probably had nothing to do with it. If someone who didn t win offers a kind word, it s welcome, of course. On occasion some novice who was just watching may come up and tell you he or she was not really sure what this dog show thing was all about, but now they think they re getting it. That s nice. Looking for Hidden Gems For me, just being allowed to put my hands on a good dog is a pleasure, and trying to determine which of a number of really good dogs should win is a fascinating challenge. Still, I think a friend of mine who judges almost every weekend put it best. When I expressed amazement at his willingness to so frequently put up with all the discomforts I outlined above, he described what he does as looking for hidden gems. That fantastic dog that will stun you with its quality and charisma may not be in your next class, or the next one after that, but sooner or later you will find it and that makes it all worthwhile.
25 DOG ACTUALLY Don't waste your time calling my name I'm far too busy to play your game I'm sniffing a dog's bum and it's doing the same Cos I'm a dog: and that's what dogs do I'm very excited when it's time for my walk The peg where my lead hangs I watch like a hawk I'd shout 'Take me walkies! ' if only I'd talk Cos I'm a dog: and that's what dogs do I run down the garden chasing after my ball I leap on my hind legs so I look rather tall When food's being offered I'll respond to your call Cos I'm a dog: and that's what dogs do I'm quite young and active and love to play And when evening comes by the fire I'll lay I'd like to sleep on a bed but in my basket I'll stay Cos I'm a dog: and that's what dogs do I'm a big labrador and my friends call me Billy I'm soft and I'm gentle and just a bit silly When I'm not eating biscuits I'm licking my... paws Cos I'm a dog: and that's what dogs do By Kevin Crinks
27 76 Rottweilers Found Living in "Deplorable" Conditions Authorities in an Orange County town are searching for new homes for 76 Rottweilers found living in what they called one of the most disturbing cases of animal abuse and neglect they've seen. The ground had nails sticking out in some parts, and the animals were eating and sleeping in white huts, according to officials. The dogs were fed stale bread. When officials cleaned out the yard, they discovered two of the animals had serious injuries: one Rottweiler had to have its leg amputated, and another lost an eye. Rescuers say Panetta was breeding the dogs to sell them, but did not have a kennel license. Fifteen to 20 dogs in immediate danger were removed.

31 Rottweiler Club NSW Proudly Presents Kris Kotsopoulos 19 th & 20 th October 2013 About Our Weekend Together From our observation, the average owner or trainer spends most of their time fighting long term unwanted behaviours. Some of these behaviours can be traced to your dog s genetic predisposition. However, for the most part they are learnt behaviours that have been reinforced time after time. In other words, they are training problems that may have been taught. It is from these unwanted behaviours, whether it be in a show, competitive training or simply at home, that many tricks and gimmicks seem to spring into the dog world. These methods in general do not correct the problems but merely mask them. In addition these quick-fix solutions only add to the problems in training. Once the undesirable behaviours have developed, training is never as simple as it could have been and is often very frustrating. At this point a very promising young dog has become nothing but a horror to work and live with. When did it all start? Was it as early as the first sit command?
32 Besides the fact that the dog will learn what behaviour to perform when it hears the word sit it simultaneously learns how to learn (classical conditioning the feeling associated with it). This is where foundation training begins. What the dog has learnt during its foundation training will have a lasting effect on its performance, for better or worse. During stress or problem solving the dog will always attempt to access its foundation training as a point of reference. It is at this point in time where the dog and trainer learn to speak the same language or not! This critical stage of training requires firsthand knowledge of animal learning, patience and specifically taught exercises. Von Forell K9 Education offers you complete training opportunities for any promising young dog. We will show you how to reinforce the genetic potential in your dog with the soundest training systems available. Our seminars and workshops are specifically designed to bring about positive and permanent shifts in your quality of training. They are designed to help you view the training of dogs with complete new possibilities. Finally we will cover the current state of global breeding practices and the impact on behaviour, what the breeder must know about proper trait selection, developing their puppies and what they should be teaching their puppy owners, how this impacts the type of dogs we end up in our community. On a Personal Note For any families, competitors or Law Enforcement Officers that wish to attend one of my seminars / workshops, the information below is designed to provide you with some understanding as to the overall structure and focus of the event. Firstly I will commence with a general opening statement, the history and current global position of the working dog world. I will discuss its belief systems, my philosophy on training dogs, my position on positive and negative training systems, and all the possibilities it creates. Then we shall discuss how to create and develop a proactive puppy or adult. I will illustrate the advantages of establishing why this active training component is so important and how to achieve it, as it is the underlying theme in my system. We will cover the importance of the reinforcement of self-recovery, teaching the dogs how to learn to learn and how they can manipulate their environment to access reward. We will cover conditioned passive and active reward techniques and show you why one technique creates concentration whilst the other creates motivation. Shaping puppy behaviour is a vital part of the program but what is most important is the teaching of active and passive states and the three essential behaviours. This set the dogs up for a successful and obedient career. The entire system is about creating a very strong basic foundation which is all possible within your own home, providing a distraction free environment for optimum learning. My strong opinion is that group classes are detrimental to canine learning in the initial stages and the only way to teach a dog properly is to create a quality distraction free environment at home. Once that is established, I will then teach you how to allow increasing distractions to enhance and solidify your dog s target behaviours, and lock them in. An exciting aspect of this system is that it rapidly improves your relationship with your dog and maintains harmony throughout his life. A system that is to a large degree maintenance free because the behaviours are thoroughly understood by the dog. I will also show you the use of prompts and containment fields to assist the concept of errorless learning, and how modern training aids only amplify your dog s responses, with thoughtful application. The learning systems are designed for people who want to establish a great working relationship with their dog, control their family pet, compete at a high level or improve and manage their tactical Police Dog.
