30 Days in Lock Down Pandemic

Hi Everyone,

I just want to say,

 I hope everyone and their loved ones are doing as good as can be expected, if not much better, in this crazy times we are having with the corona virus!!! Covid-19 or aka- the pandemic that has swept around the world in the last 2 months...what a unexpected change of events for us all.

Please stay safe and keep the dogs well too!




Everything will be okay, if not then it is not okay yet!!

Stay at home unless told otherwise by officials because they do know more than we do, it's their job to take care of us in the best way they know how...we the people voted them in or hired them so let's just stay safe, and let them work on this. All around the world scientist and researchers, hospitals and governments ARE working 24/7 to spot this corona bug that is after us..

We aren't in this alone, the whole world is together on fighting this and trying to keep everybody safe..so do your part and stay home, enjoy the at home vacation as much as possible.

It's not permanent, the world and we will adjust learning a new way to live with this new invisible threat or eventually contain it. Like other viruses and diseases before Corvid 19- ....the mumps, polio, scarlet fever, chickenpox, measles which many of us remember or heard of from our parents...we will over come this one too!

Carry on

Stay Calm

Stay Safe

Hug your dog because you can always play fetch with them indoors too, hide something the dog likes and ask them to find it...hide yourself or somebody in another room and ask your dog to find..Play hide and seek inside or in your own yard for some time away from all the bad news and exercise.

I'm working on a huge project that I will unveil here on Family Disaster Dogs 

Follow us or check your mail for updates coming soon!!

Read one of my books if your bored at home, smiles and have some fun with your dog...there's many fun things in books, here's the Family Disaster Dog Book link, the other books are at my author page there..

Take care and carry on!!

Stay well,

Amber and Washee wolf

We bugged-out from that Corvid-19 bug !! haha
Back soon...stay save!

Pieces Of Advice For New Dog Owners

Being a new dog owner is an exciting time for you and your family. However, you likely feel apprehensive about the situation and have a lot of questions running through your head.

The following advice is going to help prepare you for what’s to come so you can put your mind at ease. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll likely look back wondering why you were ever nervous in the first place. Your pet will bring you and your household a lot of joy, and it is nice to have someone to snuggle with when you’re tired or feeling low.

Start Training Early

The earlier, the better when it comes to training your pet. If you let them get too old and comfortable, you risk them never learning even basic commands. Keep your house in order and your stress levels low by enrolling in puppy school right away. You want your dog to be well behaved and understand you when you’re trying to communicate with them at home.

Get Them Outside

Your dog will need regular exercise and look forward to these outings. Therefore, get in the habit of playing with them outdoors in the fresh air. Bring them on a hike with you or let them run around at the dog park. If you’re going to be outdoors, then it’s wise to purchase a dog flea protection product you can use to help keep them safe when they’re out and about roaming around. It’s the responsible action to take and will help to ensure your pet remains in good health.

Be Available  

Being a new dog owner means more responsibility for you. You should shy away from becoming a pet owner if your schedule is hectic and you’re never home. Your dog will need your love and attention and for you to check in on them often. Therefore, you want to make sure you’re available for your dog and can be there when they need you. They’re going to need to use the bathroom, to be fed, and taken to the vet for appointments.

Prepare Your Home

Another piece of advice for new dog owners is to prepare your home ahead of time. For example, take time to puppy proof your space and make sure there’s nothing that they can get into that may harm them. Furthermore, you’ll want to have an area where they can go to relax and feel safe and access their bed and food and water when they desire. Take time to purchase all the right gear and supplies you’ll need so that you’re ready for their arrival.

Conclusion

Bringing home a new dog is an event to look forward to and anticipate. However, it can also be a lot of work and require accountability on your part. Use this advice to help you along the way and to make sure that your pet’s homecoming is memorable and successful. Learn from your mistakes and don’t be afraid to ask questions or reach out for help and advice when you need it.
