The fur is hitting the fan!!!!

I’m so happy to report that abc has announced today that POOCH PERFECT, a dog grooming competition reality show hosted by the only Rebel Wilson is going to be broadcast this spring!!!. And that is not all!!!, the judges are going to make you wag your tail like a freshly groom puppy!. I’m talking about me!!!. I’m still pinching myself not only because I get this great opportunity to be part of a team to choose, in eight episodes who is going to be the lucky groomer who will rise to the top and earn a whole lot of money while showing their great grooming skills on a huge platform.

This is not all, I will be joined on the judges panel by the one and only Lisa Vanderpump!!. I can’t even start to tell you how much I admire the work that she has done with Vanderpump Dogs, a non profit organization that rescue dogs and constantly lobby to end the dog meat markets in China running shelters in china, Venezuela and the US.

We will be joined by Dr. Callie Harris from Atlanta ( ). I can’t wait to meet her too!!!

CBD Treats for Pets

What’s trending in pets review this week…

42D1CF46-A3B8-4D61-877A-A168DB70C449While trying to age gratefully, my dog Tito, and myself, are constantly searching of new natural products that will help us keep active and healthy.

A year ago I was diagnosed with cancer, and while going trough radiation and chemo I start searching for products that will help me deal with the aches and pains of the treatment. I was then introduce to CBD supplements. I was amazed of the great results.

Like the old say indicates, when it rains, it pours! and Tito’s health suddenly took a quick turn to the worst, his arthritis made it hard for him to run up the stairs and his trachea was acting up.

Researching for  a natural alternative to pain killers and sedatives to control his pain and anxiety I discovered TREATIBLES, they contain a blend of non-psychoactive phytocannabinoids derived from American-grown medicinal grade hemp.

I wish I would had recorded the difference that it made. In just a couple of days, I could see the difference in Titos attitude, he started going up and down the stairs and the cough pretty much was gone ( since he wasn’t freaking out when he cough). At that point, I decided to approach that TREATIBLES team and learn more about their products.

As a dog groomer, I know how important in the final result it is to have a calm dog to work on so I immediately started recommending TREATIBLES to my grooming clients and WOW, just WOW, writhing a couple of grooming sessions I could easily see the difference .

To Pack or not to Pack, a dog walking question

Is not unusual in NYC or any other big city to see a dog walker with a pack of dogs walking around town. I immediately get a bunch of  mix feelings and questions.

As much as I enjoy going out for a walk with friends, does my dog want to be be walked with other fellas?.

I assume that most dogs know each other, since most dog walkers have the same clients but is still somehow troublesome for me. A big red flag goes up when I see that it is only ONE person handling the pack since at some point the dogs have to be left unattended in order to deliver and/or pick up another client. Leaving a dogs unattended  at any time is a no no, imagine leaving a pack tided up to a fence. All of that is unacceptable in my book. When I see that the pack is being handled by two dog walkers that fear despair since there is always a pair of eyes checking on the dogs.

Back to me, (my favorite topic). When I go for a walk with friends, I usually get annoyed if someone in my “Pack” is slowing us down due to a very entertaining text message trend or just because he decided to walk slow and smell the flowers.

Lots of communal dog walks include dogs of different size, and they definitely have different body function schedules, forcing the whole pack to stop every few steps spending most of the  time standing than walking, and that is a problem if the reason to have your dog walked is to be sure he gets a healthy dose of exercise.

What is your take on dog walking services?
