Now that the "Back To School" season is officially in full swing, parents, caregivers, babysitters and anyone else who spent the summer romping around with the rugrats can sit back, relax, and finally enjoy some peace and quiet. Yeah,.......right!
Considering what it takes to get kids ready for school these days, I believe that the only one who gets the benefit of a quiet house is the family pet. And, sometimes the pet can go through a sad state of mind when the house is empty and there is no one to play with. Let's face it, when we humans crave some peace and quiet, we need it. I know for myself, as much as I love my dog, I have been known to kick him out of my room for some serious solitude time.
This could be a great time to help Fido fight the back to school blues by constructing a personalized pet program designed specifically for your pets needs. I have a Samoyed name Harry. Harry's needs are very minimal these days. He is 11 years old now, and he just wants to lay quietly in the shade by the pine trees. However, we do not have a fenced lot, so I do need to keep him on a lead that allows him enough room to roam around and lay down.
Other dogs have much more energy and need to be kept busy while kids are not home to entertain. One great way of keeping your dog physically and mentally fit is by setting up its own agility course. The Radio Systems Corporation features the Petsafe line of high quality, easy to assemble dog agility products that can make your dog jump for joy in practically no time.
The PetSafe Bar Jump can help teach your dog to jump to new heights with a single bar hurdle. Its simple design and sturdy construction make it durable, but its composition from lightweight PVC ensures that your dog won’t get hurt if he knocks it down. Set-up is easy, and a handy carrying case lets you take the bar with you or store it when it’s not in use.
Another great product for beginner agility training is the Petsafe Dog Agility 10-foot Open Tunnel. This portable tunnel is extremely lightweight, made of durable ripstop fabric and is very easy to assemble in any open space. You will be able to get your dog to master going through the tunnel straight and then change it up by adding a curve or two for more difficulty. The PetSafe Dog Agility Open Tunnel kit comes with a carrying case so you can bring your tunnel with you, or to store it in a folded position when not in use. This kit also features a training guide with easy to follow directions and pointers on how to get your dog to perform some fun feats.
If you are really interested in setting up a super-deluxe, more advanced agility course for Fido, then you can add the Petsafe Agility Weave Poles to your obstacle course. The agility weave poles are one of the most enjoyable parts of an obstacle course for you and your dog. You can have tons of fun by testing your dog's agility and speed with these lightweight, easy to assemble poles. Mastering the agility poles will fill both you and your dog with pride. Each Petsafe agility weave pole kit comes with a total of 6 poles, sent 10 inches apart from one another.
Whatever course you decide is best for your furry friend, it's sure to beat the back to school blues that your dog may experience while the kids are off learning and you are either enjoying the quiet or going about another busy day.
