Frontline For Fleas

Flea Bites

Fleas are wingless, blood-sucking insects that feeds on dog, cats, humans and other species.

Fleas prefer dog and cat hosts, but in the absence of a preferred host will use humans or other available animals as a host. Pet owners may not be bothered by fleas until their pet is away for an extended period of time and the fleas, in the absence of their normal host, begin to bite the owners. Bites frequently occur around the waist, ankles, armpits, and in the bend of the elbows and knees.

The objective of treatment is to break the flea life cycle by treating the home, the pets, and the outside environment with insecticide. Home foggers and flea collars are not always effective. Birds and fish must be protected during spraying. If home treatments are ineffective, professional extermination may be needed.

Products such as frontline for fleas are powerful in getting rid of fleas. An over-the-counter 1% hydrocortisone cream can help relieve itching.

Dog Training

Dog Training

Dog training involves training a dog to obey basic control commands such as sit, down, and heel.

There are almost as many methods of training as there are trainers, but over time the basic strategy has shifted away from punishment or avoidance training (negative reinforcement) to positive reinforcement, where the dog is rewarded for doing the correct thing during most phases of training rather than being punished for not doing what the trainer wants.

Nowadays it is possible to take your dog to a training school, or purchase dog training information on the internet in the form of books, videos and CDs.
