Knowing your Dog...

Lily was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism a deficency of the thyroid hormone that control metabolism and other functions. I’m glad we caught it with lab work and she is responding to tretment. But it got me thinking this is a great time to remind yourself do you really know your dog? Would you notice if the slept a little more, seemed off or limped slightly. I would hope we can all observe a little more closely and treasure the time we have with our four legged pals. 

On the nosework front we are looking forward to trying AKC Scentwork this summer and are working to retrain containers. Lily has developed a desire to alert on distractions so we are working to ignore those :-).
