Dogs, Diabetes, and dogPACER

unnamed-2

Times have changed, people. In some ways, for the better, and in some ways, for the worse. When it comes to dogs,  you can look at it both ways. Things have gotten better and our understand of dogs has advanced greatly over time. But in some ways, there has been a step back in the last 20 years. From dogs with heart disease to dogs with diabetes, dog’s health problems have increased with our own. So what do we do now? Come on, you know we can help!

How We Intend To Put An End to Dog Obesity

Not only are dogs adorable, but you keep them healthy and you get decades of love and a genuine friend.

Not only are dogs adorable, but you keep them healthy and you get decades of love and a genuine friend.

As you know by now, we here at dogPACER pride ourselves on being very proactive when it comes to the cessation of dog obesity. We have told you the risks you run from have an overweight dog, and a few simple things you can do to avoid that from happening. We would once again like to take a moment to present you with a few more facts about our dogPACER treadmills. For us, the ultimate reward is to know we are maximizing the life of your dog, and the amount of time you and your family get to share with it. This is by no means a commercial  This is simply us pointing out a few things that most people may not know about what we do, or the service we provide.

We have said it before, and we will say it again. Some people may laugh when they first hear about dog treadmills, thinking that reflects on a pampered dog, or perhaps a lazy owner, but both of those assumptions are way off. We commonly work the elderly whom, before our dogPACER treadmills, said that they’re dogs were becoming overweight and lethargic from the lack of activity, which in turn, was making them more depressed. Once they saw their dog get the pep back in its step, that, in turn, would inspire them, making for a much healthier and happier home for both of them.

There are few feelings as wonderful as helping a wounded veteran, which is just what our ELITE treadmills are for.

But perhaps what we are most proud of is our Elite line of dogPACER treadmills, that we use with military animals and veterans. These are the dogs who put their lives on the line for our very freedom (the freedom to have, and love, dogs, for example) and yet many of them get injured and just waste away without proper exercise or care. But thanks to our Elite line, not only are injured dogs getting the workouts they need, one hundred dollars gets donated aid various military programs that enlist and aid with our canine friends for every Elite we sell. That is cause we can ALL get behind.

So as you can see, we have a great deal of pride in what we do, because we have a great deal of love for dogs. You can see in their adoration that a dog would do anything for a human it loves, and it’s about time we start doing that for them, too! The dogPACER is one step forward in the right direction, literally AND figuratively.

Simple Steps Towards Having A Healthy Dog

happy doggy

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even people who are dog lovers tend to get shocked when they hear about the bevvy of health problems that can affect a dog if they are not properly taken care of. And we are not just speaking of worms and mange, or other problems that seem animal specific. Believe it or not, we are talking about heart attacks and strokes. Yes, that’s right. As fun as it may be the feed your dog every table scrap he begs for, you are perpetuating a huge problem that could just cost your dog its life. There are some truly simple steps that can be taken to avoid these tragedies, and we are here to ensure you are more aware of those steps.

First and the most obvious ways to avoid this is to take your dogs for walks and runs. Every day, no excuses. Even if running is something you despise, in getting a dog, you had to know you were willing to sacrifice your own comfort to ensure the longevity of this new found friend. Even the act of having a fenced in yard can make all the difference to the dog, and to your life, as a result. As long as that dog has time set aside every day to run and play, and just generally, be a dog, than you are adding years to that dog’s life. And in that off chance you don’t have enough free time to take the dogs for walks, there are still amazing ways to ensure that your dog doesn’t get so fat it runs the risk of a stroke. One may not know that dog treadmills are an option, but they are. And in many ways, they are the best option for ensuring a healthy dog, if you can’t walk it yourself, hourly, every day.

To some, it may seem silly talking about dog strokes and dog treadmills, but do you know just how widespread the problem is? The truth of the matter is far more heart breaking than most would think. Take this story for example. And that is but one story in the sea of hundreds of thousands of stories. So now you know, and you know what you need to do to avoid it, so why are there still so many people who allow their dogs to get fat and unhealthy?.

The sad truth is, we will never really have an answer for that. And the other reality is, we cannot allow ourselves to focus solely on that aspect of animal upbringing, because there are millions upon millions of people who adore their dogs, and treat them right. And in case you may think that your dog doesn’t want to exercise, watch this video and you realize, not only do they want to go for a walk, it is their instinct, and when they put their mind to it, nothing can stop them. Nothing except a lazy human, that is. Don’t be that lazy human. If you want to be lazy yourself, that is fine, there is little we can do. But being lazy can negatively affect your dog’s life and health, so remember that next time you want make an excuse to not walk your dog.

Or even better, just buy it a dog treadmill, and you can be as lazy as you want without ruining the dog’s life. Seems fair to us.

Hoping all of my dog friends on the East Coast are safe through Hurricane Sandy! Happy Halloween dog friends!

I’ve been reading all of the posts about the horrible things happening in New York and surrounding cities. I just visited New York and I hope all of my dog friends and their families are safe. Storms are scary for most dogs in general, I am sure this is worse for so many dogs. I hope they have a safe place to relax during through all of the storms. For those that are affected, I have seen some heartwarming photos of firemen and policemen rescuing dogs that are stuck…I am so happy there are so many people that help rescue the pets and families that are affected by the storm.

 

I also want to wish all of my dog friends a Happy Halloween. Today can be both fun and scary for us dogs…our parents love to dress us up in silly costumes and post photos of us on Facebook and other social media sites. Ok, this can be fun…I just love seeing my dog friends in fun costumes…on the other side of the tail, some of the costumes that kids and adults wear can really scare me. Luckily, my dad lets me go in a safe place when people are around with scary costumes. I also exercised a lot already on my dogPACER so that I can rest and nap with all of the craziness of Halloween. Don’t get my bark wrong, I do like Halloween…but sometimes I just get overwhelmed…so I am going to rest today and let the humans play. :-)

I had to share this photo of my of my best dog friends, Mac. His parents dressed him up and took a photo that they entered in a contest. He loves dressing up and I hope he wins…Good luck, Mac! Mac loves exercising on the dogPACER and now the Minipacer dog treadmills. His parents sell them in their dog boutique, The Dog House.

 

Happy Saturday…what kind of dog tricks do you do to get treats on Howl-O-Ween? Also…MUST READ…ROCKY NEEDS A NEW FOREVER HOME!

Do you fetch frisbee’s, balls or toys and bring them back to your parents? Or are you a sit and stay or play dead kind of dog? Woofie… All of my dog friends are so talented…and for our tricks, we love getting treats! :-)

I know I just do my 45 minutes of exercise on my dogPACER and get on and off the treadmill when I am told “treadmill”…I always get a healthy treat after my workout! Yes, I am a spoiled dog!

I have barked to many of you about my good friend, Rocky! He is a rescued wiener dog that is living with our certified trainer, Geralynn. She has been helping Rocky to loose weight and get healthy with a healthy diet and daily workouts on the Minipacer. Rocky is a great dog that is so happy that he is now able to move around and walk normally.

Rocky is healthy enough to find a new family to live with. He is available for adoption and the dogPACER team is working hard to find the perfect family to give him the love and attention he deserves.

Rocky loves attention, he is trained and loves daily workouts on the Minipacer and showing off his skills. You can go to this link to learn more about Rocky and read his amazing story.

You can also contact Geralynn directly or call our office at 702-696-9999. If you have any questions, you can also contact anyone at the dogPACER office at [email protected]

I promise, you will love Rocky! He also loves dressing up and meeting new dogs and people. I will miss him, but I know he deserves a good family to live with after all he has been through.

Happy Howl-O-Ween!!
