Summer Car Safety

October 11th, 2010 | Posted in Blog

With the heat of summer upon us it’s a good time to remind everyone of how quickly the heat within our vehicles rises. Never leave your pet or children inside an unattended vehicle. It’s dangerous and it’s against the law!

The VPCA hosted a Decoy School at the Academy. Three handlers and three decoys attended, spending the long weekend being hit, punched, tackled and bit by our dogs. Good school.

Pets Commandments

March 19th, 2009 | Posted in Blog

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to b e painful.
2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.
3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.
4. Don’t be angry with me for long and don’t lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.
5. Talk to me. Even if I don’t understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.
6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.
7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.
8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I’m not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.
9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.
10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can’t bear to watch. Don’t make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.
