Pet Water Safety -- Not Every Dog Can Dog-Paddle


Does your pet know how to swim? Of course, you might answer--all dogs know how to swim. Not so, says MSNBC, Of pooches and pools -- teaching your dog to swim:

Diamond confirmed that some dogs are born swimmers. It's a good bet if the dog's breed includes the word "water," as in Portuguese or English water spaniel, it takes to swimming like a nursery-schooler takes to finger-painting. For owners of those breeds, the problem isn't getting the dog into the water, but keeping it on dry land. But other breeds aren't as water-friendly. Some dogs have to be taught to swim, Diamond said, and others, like bulldogs, take to the water like submarines take to the Cross Bronx Expressway. For the former, there is hope. For the latter, there are those bright orange canine flotation devices.

Among the dogs that swim naturally and gladly, she said, are water spaniels, setters, retrievers, Barbets, akitas, Kerry blue terriers, poodles and Hungarian pulis.

Among those that can't swim at all or swim only with great difficulty are basset hounds, bulldogs, dachshunds, pugs, corgis, Scottish and Boston terriers and greyhounds.

To be on the safe side, fit your pet with a Life Jacket (Amazon has a supply), especially out in the open water. If your dog swims in a pool or off the boat, a Skamper Ramp is a great help to get him/her out of the pool. Also worth strong consideration is a Pool Safety Alarm.

Care and Feeding of Our Pets--New Book Releases

Do you ever wonder if you are feeding your pet the most nutritious food? Whether you should really be throwing them scraps, or if their recent illness was caused by their diet? The pet food recall of 2007 reminded us all that we can't take pet nutrition for granted anymore. Here are a few of the new books out on the all important subject of food and fuel for our pets.

For a comprehensive guide, pick up a copy of Ultimate Pet Food Guide: Everything You Need to Know About Feeding Your Dog or Cat by Liz Palika. This book covers it all--homemade, commercial, and raw food diets. The author discusses introducing new foods; what "human foods" pets shouldn't eat; free-feeding; responsibility for food safety; where ingredients come from; and red flags in ingredients.

If you like to cook for your pets, you can choose from more than fifty veterinarian- and pet-nutritionist-approved recipes, along with diets tailored to special-needs pets, such as puppies/kittens and pregnant, older, overweight and/or more sedentary animals.

Natural Nutrition for Cats: The Path to Purr-fect Health by Kymythy R. Schultze, "exposes the pitfalls of the pet-food industry." You will benefit from the author's extensive knowledge of proper feline nutrition. She updates the information from her previous books, Natural Nutrition for Dogs and Cats and The Natural Nutrition No-Cook Book, writing with charm and humor. You will love the photos.

If you are contemplating a new puppy, or have just brought one into your home, Puppy Preschool, Revised Edition: Raising Your Puppy Right---Right from the Start! by John Ross and Barbara McKinney is a must-read. It is filled with great advice for the first-time dog owner, as well as a refresher course for repeat owner. The premise of the books is that you should always train from the canine point of view.

In the first chapter, which is critical to puppy-rearing success, they outline their underlying training philosophy and consider who should own a dog. In succeeding chapters, they cover choosing the right puppy (including finding and evaluating puppies, the ten best breeds, and ten problem breeds), puppy development, bonding and socializing, housebreaking, basic commands, and puppy manners.

If you are a dog-lover reading Super Cool Pets, you most likely have experience bringing up a puppy. Due to a dog's optimal 10-15 or so year lifespan, a lot of time can go by between puppies. As we found, it's never a bad idea to update yourself on state-of-the-art training techniques, pet food and equipment. And we will keep you current here on Super Cool Pets.
