Protect your pet with the City of Vero Beach Police's pet tag registration program

From Treasure Coast dot com:

They find many dogs  on the streets of the city every week without a collar or any identifying tags.  VBPD Animal Control Unit is initiating this program in an effort to reunite  local pet owners with  their furry friends.

EASY PEASY

Go by the police department Monday through Friday, 8am-4pm, or request the Animal Control officer to respond to your residence for pet registration. You will be asked to fill out a short easy form with all your pertinent information. They will issue your pet a tag! Any pet can be registered – dogs, cats, ferrets, you name it!

Should your pet ever get lost, they will be matched up to you when located by calling the Humane Society and providing their unique registration number on the tag.

This can work in conjunction with, or in place of the micro-chip. This program is FREE of charge!

Their mission is to reunite you with your pet as quickly and efficiently as possible. So call VBPD at 772-978-4600 and come on by to participate in this great service!

 ALL dogs love dog walks - even seniors!

My motto at Vero Beach Pet Sitters: "Birds fly, fish swim and dogs walk!"...Cesar Millan

It's a primal activity.

The greatest give you can give your dog is a DOG WALK. Not junk food!

The primary sense a dog relies on is NOSE. Scent. Sniffing. Not seeing. Not hearing. 

Dog walking is love. 

Senior dogs and handicapped dogs need love, too! 

Contact Cindy to arrange dog walking in Vero Beach, FL. for your best friend!

Hey Vero Beach! Here's 6 tips for mastering the dog walk!

Dog walking in Vero Beach is popular! I work in all the neighborhoods and see an abundance of dogs walking their people. (lol). 

My motto at Vero Beach Pet Sitters: "Birds fly, fish swim and dogs walk!"

All dogs love walking. It's what they do. :) If you need help offering your dog enrichment with dog walks, just contact Cindy on 772-226-0738 for a demonstration on techniques to make your experience more fun or to schedule dog walks as a gift to your best friend! 

Here are some tips from Cesar Millan, the king of dog walks. Start with getting rid of your retractable leash! Your dog can't feel your energy on it and thinks he's free to sniff and wander aimlessly instead of getting his head in the game and WALKING which helps release pent up energy being stuck behind four walls all day. 

It starts before you leave the house. YOU lead your dog out the door not the other way around! Until your dog can drive a car or write a check he needs YOU to be the leader. Putting it on him is too much responsibility! 
 

Six Tips For Mastering The Dog Walk

By Cesar Millan

Here are six dog training tips on how to walk your dog and master the dog walk. When I’m out with my dog pack, I often walk about ten dogs at a time, sometimes even off-leash if I'm in a safe area. People are amazed by this, but it's simple: the dogs see me as their pack leader. This is why dogs follow me wherever I go.

1. Walk in front of your dog.

Walking in front of your dog allows you to be seen as the pack leader. Conversely, if your dog controls you on the walk, he’s the pack leader. You should be the first one out the door and the first one in. Your dog should be beside or behind you during the walk.

2. Use a short dog leash.

This allows you to have more control. Attaching the leash to the very top of the neck can help you more easily communicate, guide, and correct your dog. If you need additional help, consider the Pack Leader Collar. Always keep your dog's safety in mind when giving corrections.

3. Give yourself enough time for the dog walk.

Dogs, like humans, are diurnal, so taking walks in the morning is ideal. I recommend setting aside thirty minutes to a full hour. The specific needs of each dog differ. Consult your vet and keep an eye on your dog's behavior to see if his needs are being met.

4. How to reward your dog during the walk.

After your dog has maintained the proper state of mind, reward him by allowing him to relieve himself and sniff around. Then you need to decide when reward time is over. It should always be less than the time spent focused on the walk.

5. Keep leading, even after the walk.

When you get home, don't stop leading. Have your dog wait patiently while you put away his leash or take off your shoes.

6. Reward your dog after the walk.

By providing a meal after the walk, you have allowed your dog to "work" for food and water.

And don’t forget to set a good example by always picking up after your dog!
