1. Tales from the Trips (Latest News)
===============================================
Can you believe how fast this summer is passing? Soon it will be the 4th of July, and as some of my friends say, “Then it will be Christmas!”

Last month I had another unexpected speaking engagement and book signing. The highlight was teaching an eight year old to train her pup in a positive way. She had unusual aptitude for someone so young.

Most trainers avoid training puppies early since it is very labor intensive and because they have no attention spans. I like to get young animals started into positive behavior early and avoid the adolescent blues of redirection and extinguishing bad behavior.

One of my colleagues is on maternity leave and so I have been taking up some of her work load and it has kept me busy. I am seeing clients around southern California and it is actually nice to leave my mountain abode and get into the real world. It really makes me appreciate where I live and my life’s work.

This month will find me in Cincinnati. I’ve been hired to speak to a large pet food corporation and am looking forward to the adventure. Everyone who will attend is reading, “What Animals Can Teach Us about Spirituality: Inspiring Lessons of Wild & Tame Creatures.”

My editor finally called me regarding my newest work. She liked it and is NOT requesting any changes. The only adjustment will be to the order of the content. This is great news!

Finally, this summer I urge you to keep your critters safe from the summer heat, rattlesnakes, and the seasonal insanity of fireworks. This issue will include some tips for pet safety during the holiday fireworks.

Have a great month and thanks for your continued support!

2. Question(s) for the Month
===============================================
Last month I asked you what you knew about the Pet Evacuation Transportation Act. You can find the updates at the Library of Congress Website.

Basically the bill provides for rescue relief and transportation of animals during disasters. It has been referred to committee. Find more information here: http://thomas.loc.gov/bss/109search.html

This is a summary of the search page from that site:

3. Critter Chronicles: Noise Phobia Precautions
===============================================
This is a reprint from one of my articles at arkanimals.com.

Many animals are traumatized by the loud fireworks during the holiday celebrations. The fireworks, aircraft, and other related noises may turn your pets into a quivering mass of jelly or have them bolt as a result of their fright; they may also be destructive to the home, or even worse, to themselves.

There are ways to desensitize a pet to thunder storms and fireworks, but it takes time and preplanning. If this holiday is right around the corner, there are a couple of things owners can do to assist their pets through this short period of potential trauma.

First, understand that "comforting" your pet, although done with good intentions, can actually reinforce the fear and panic. You could call it "training by accident " and it is best to refrain from this activity. Reassuring your pet is different from the cuddling, petting, holding, and trying to physically relieve the stress. The age of your pet, socialization, experience, and breed can also influence their reactions.

The best preparations that you can use at such short notice is to make sure that your pet has ID tags with current information on them, and that they are safely secured both before and through the holiday period. Here are a few quick temporary options:

-Crate your pet at home
-Kennel the pet professionally
-Keep the pet confined/restrained indoors
-Use Drug Therapy (Tranquilizers/anti-anxiety medications from the veterinarian)

Ideally your home environment is the best holding area for your pet. It is suggested that you put your animal in a quiet room or into a crate. Crates like Vari-Kennel® or Kennel-Cab® seem to work better than the wire ones. Wire crates tend to be more open and feel less secure and your pet could damage their teeth on them more easily.

If you are using a room in the home, the best one to restrain an animal in is the bathroom, laundry room, or secure garage. The room to choose is one where there are no windows to jump through, or where they can be blocked off and are too high and narrow to access.

Also try to darken the room and/or crate and play soothing music fairly loud (to help drown out the firework noise). It is ideal if a family member can be at home with the animal through this time. These are the types of things that will help most pets feel secure and calmer.

Before the holiday, be aware that fireworks may be set off before dark. Keep your dog on a leash when toileting, and make sure that your pets have on a snug collar with the name and phone number of the veterinarian, and owners. Put your pets "to bed" early on the fourth before the fireworks start.

Crates or confinement serve as a "den" for your pet and will help them to feel more secure --if this is trained right and done gradually. Long periods alone in a crate should be avoided. Some dogs will not like being confined if you do this too quickly and many will protest by howling, whining, barking, and having a fit.

If you have time, it is best to gradually train them to "crate." Put food or a treat in the kennel with the door latched open. Later work at closing the door for a few seconds and praising them for staying there quietly. Gradually lengthen the time spent in the crate with you there, and then with you leaving the room.

Always check with your veterinarian and behavior specialist before using any drugs or tranquilizers, and don't forget to watch out for guests opening doors up which can provide an opportunity for animals to bolt out. For further help, contact your veterinarian or your local animal behavior specialist.
