Protecting Your Dog Against Fleas and Ticks

At Aussie Dog Care we know the difficulties of removing Fleas and Ticks so hopefully this information will help protect your dogs against Fleas and Ticks!

Flea and Ticks are normally around during warmer summer months however the odd few do seem to reappear from time to time as we know!

Below Text Quoted from http://www.cesarsway.com/

“Ticks survive the winter in microclimates, and after the thaw a feeding and breeding female tick can lay hundreds to thousands of eggs at one time2. Fleas can survive freezing temperatures on wild or feral animals, cocooned as immature pupae, or inside houses and buildings3. With temperatures in the 50s, 60’s, and even 70s, an early spring also means an early season for these bloodsucking parasites.

It’s practically impossible to keep fleas and ticks completely at bay. But there are some steps you can take to try and minimize the opportunities for contact with your pet.

Fleas.Wildlife, including opossums, coyotes, raccoons, and skunks, and even untreated cats and dogs can deposit flea eggs into a yard. It may be possible to reduce flea infestations by limiting the access these animals have around your house and yard. Your local nursery or garden professional may have some advice on what to plant or other strategies to discourage animal trespassers.

Ticks It can be helpful for pet owners to alter the landscape around their homes to make it unsuitable for ticks and their hosts. For example, keep the lawn mowed, remove leaf litter accumulations and prune shrubs and trees.4

Contact a professional pest specialist if you have any questions regarding environmental treatments for ticks.

 

Use a Flea and Tick Control Product

 

Despite your efforts to reduce the fleas and ticks in your yards, our pets may still be exposed to these parasites, so you should take measures to help protect them. Treat all dogs and cats in the household with a flea and tick control product. One untreated pet can lead to a flea infestation in the household.

FRONTLINE® brand products can help protect your dog from unexpected flea and tick sources by killing adult fleas, eggs and larvae, and all stages of ticks. FRONTLINE Plus not only stops existing flea infestations, but also prevents the establishment of new infestations.

Consistency is key. Even one missed dose of your monthly flea and tick control can set the stage for a flea infestation that takes months to resolve, or put your pet at greater risk of exposure to a tick borne disease. So be sure you treat your pet now and continue monthly applications throughout the rest of the year.”

National Trust: Lyme Park Disley

At Aussie Dog Care we love regular trips to Lyme Park in Disley . If you scroll down below you can see our amazing day trip recently ay Lyme Park Disley , dog walking ! I actually used to live in Lyme Park! You can go on some many walks at Lyme Park in Disley and all the dogs are very tired out after their trip!

“Lyme Park is a large estate located south of DisleyCheshire. The estate is managed by the National Trust and consists of a mansion house surrounded by formal gardens, in a deer park in the Peak District National Park.[1] The house is the largest in Cheshire,[2] and is designated by English Heritage as a Grade I listed building.[3]

The estate was granted to Sir Thomas Danyers in 1346 and passed to the Leghs of Lyme by marriage in 1388. It remained in the possession of the Legh family until 1946 when it was given to the National Trust. The house dates from the latter part of the 16th century. Modifications were made to it in the 1720s by Giacomo Leoni, who retained some of the Elizabethan features and added others, particularly the courtyard and the south range. It is difficult to classify Leoni’s work at Lyme, as it contains elements of both Palladian and Baroque styles.[a] Further modifications were made by Lewis Wyatt in the 19th century, especially to the interior. Formal gardens were created and developed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The house, gardens and park have been used as locations for filming and they are open to the public. The Lyme Caxton Missal is on display in the Library.” Quoted from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyme_Park

The Countryside Code

On our walks at Aussie Dog Care with home boarding and dog walking clients we sometimes like to go off the beaten track in and around our local area of Romiley, Stockport. When you are in the countryside you have to abide by a certain code this being – The Countryside Code.  It is set for all members of the public to respect and enjoy the countryside.

Code Logo from http://www.naturalengland.org.uk/
Code Logo from http://www.naturalengland.org.uk/

This is the Countryside Code:

  • Be safe, plan ahead and follow any signs
    1. Take maps/guidebooks
    2. Be prepared for changes in weather
    3. Check the weather so you know what to expect
    4. Let someone know where you are going, how long you plan to be
    5. Learn signs and symbols used in the countryside
  • Leave gates and property as you find them
    1. Farmers may leave gates open to allow their animals to move – so leave an open gate open, and a closed gate closed
    2. Contact the local authority if you see a sign which may be misleading or illegal (e.g. Private, no entry – on a public footpath)
    3. Follow paths where crops are growing
    4. Use gates or stiles if possible, rather than climbing walls or fences, to avoid damage
    5. Don’t disturb ruins or historic sites
    6. Don’t interfere with machinery or livestock
  • Protect plants and animals and take your litter home
    1. Litter and leftover food spoils the beauty of the countryside
    2. Don’t damage, destroy or remove features such as rocks, plants and trees
    3. Give wild animals and farm animals plenty of space as they can behave unpredictably
    4. Be careful not to drop matches or smouldering cigarettes.
  • Keep dogs under close control
    1. By law, you must control your dog so that it does not disturb or scare farm animals or wildlife
    2. Farmers are, by law, entitled to destroy a dog that injures or worries their animals
    3. Always clean up after your dog and get rid of the mess responsibly
  • Consider other people
    1. Respect the needs of local people
    2. When riding a bike or driving a vehicle, slow down for horses, walkers and livestock and give them plenty of room
    3. By law, cyclists must give way to walkers and horse-riders on bridleways
    4. Support the rural economy – for example, buy your supplies from local shops

Taken from http://www.thethreepeakschallenge.co.uk/ . Even though this is taken from Three Peaks Challenge this code applies for any walk in the countryside.
