Doggy Repooval loves to see happy dogs and happy owners, so why not follow some of these suggestions to have fun while exercising your dog, even in your own back yard!

Play Tug Of War

A simple and effective form of exercise for your dog is by playing tug of war with a rope or dog toy. Find a nice long rope or even use an old sock with a knot tied. Let him grab one end as you hold the other while he tries to pull the rope away.  This helps build legs muscles, jaw strength, and shoulders to keep him fit. Let your dog set the pace and strength when it comes to tug of war, you don’t want to accidentally pull too hard and risk hurting your pooch.

Fetch

This is another great exercise for your dog. You can buy an array of toys and balls to be tossed around, or just find a good old fashioned stick. Your dog will chase after the toy to bring it to you. All you have to do is throw it out in the yard again. This is good for his heart and mobility. It can be a great way to keep him active when you simply don’t have the time to take him on long walks. He will appreciate you spending the time playing with him.

Give Your Dog Unconditional Love

Your dog is a special friend. He is a close member of the family. You should always give him plenty of petting and love. A loving pet that shows his devotion towards you should always be rewarded. Make sure that you never neglect your dog. This is just as important as physical exercise.

How Dog Feces Affects Your Lawn in Santa Clarita

How Dog Feces Affects Your Lawn

dog feces lawn santa clarita Most dog owners will tell you that yard clean-up after their dogs is one of the most hated tasks. However, leaving dog feces on the lawn can cause damage to the grass in the form of dead spots. These dead spots come from the high amount of nitrogen present in both dog urine and fecal matter. Many people believe that only female dogs produce these dead spots, but both male and female dogs can create these dead spots. So how can Santa Clarita homeowners prevent these dead spots in their lawns?

How to Keep Your Lawn Looking Great

There are a few ways to prevent grass burns from urine. Rinsing the law within eight hours after the dog urinates can help keep the grass from dying. There are also stones for your dog’s water bowl that can help keep the nitrogen from killing the grass. Keeping feces from killing your law can be a little more difficult. The only ways to really prevent the dead spots from feces is to either keep the dog from going on the grass or to remove the feces on a regular basis.

Health Issues

Besides keeping the grass from dying, removing the feces on a regular basis is also beneficial for the look and health of your home. A lawn filled with feces is unpleasant for neighbors and visitors because of the smell and the terror of possibly stepping on something nasty. Feces also carries a large variety of bacteria and parasites that can be harmful to your health if left lying around for too long.
