Although they may not look it, our dogs have some pretty serious instincts. Sometimes we can see this in the way they play fetch, how they sniff, or how they bravely guard us against the mailman, the squirrels, and that suspicious newspaper on the ground.
Lots of times our dogs need a job, something to channel these instincts and give them a chance to use their energy in a constructive way. If your terrier is terrorizing your neighbours, if your husky has eaten your couch, or you just want something fun to do this resource is a great way to provide enrichment for both you and your dog!
FIV+ Cat Facts
FIV or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus can sound pretty scary! FIV attacks the immune system of our feline friends, leaving them susceptible to other infections or illnesses.
Thankfully, being tested positive for FIV is no longer a death sentence. Although there is still no cure, we now know that cats can live long and happy lives WITHOUT infecting another cat.
Precautions are still taken by:
adopting a FIV positive cat into a home that either already has FIV cats or no other cats.
making sure all cats in the home are up to date with vaccines and boosters.
