Summer is the time for dog parks and long walks and plenty of other outdoor activities with our dogs. Chances are your dog got a chance to play with other dogs more than once over the summer. Did you have an occasion to worry that they were playing too rough?
Roughhousing is part of the fun of being a dog. Playing is a way for dogs to explore their world and to socialize with other animals and people. It is completely normal, safe, and healthy in most cases, but it can become dangerous if it goes too far. [...] can take a turn for the worse if the dog begins to bite or play in a way that harms people or other animals. Here are some tips about how to prevent rough play.
Cesar has some great tips for how to prevent this situation: What To Do when Dogs Play Too RoughShare
Our four-legged best friends depend on us for care when they’re hurt and hot weather can be the factor behind several common foot pad injuries. Did you know that pads don’t heal like regular skin? Anything more serious than a minor abrasion should be seen by a Veterinarian.
Hot weather means hot surfaces like asphalt and concrete, both of which can severely burn your dog’s feet. Sand, gravel, broken cement are other hazards, and where those things exist, you might also find broken glass or other sharp objects on the ground. Chemical burns from fertilizers and pesticides are another hazard that can’t be verbalized by our walking companion.
Watch for any signs of limping, licking at the foot or bleeding. Chances are your dog won’t just come over and show you the painful place, but there could be abrasions, blisters, burns, ulcers, tears, punctures and lacerations just about anytime your dog has been outside or on a strange surface.
There are some simple instructions for basic cleaning and medication at CesarsWay. Vetericyn is an antibacterial ointment preferred by Cesar; it is a “reliable wound care solution that does not interfere with the wound healing process”.

Use Those ‘Walks To School’ To Master The Walk With The Illusion Collar Set
With the school year headed our way, you have a great opportunity to train the dog. Use the walk to school with the kids every morning to Master The Walk with your dog, too! Use the Illusion Collar Set from CesarsWay.com.
We have mentioned the Illusion Collar And Leash Set in previous posts, but since walking your dog it such an essential part of being a good dog owner, we want to remind you of this revolutionary collar created by Cesar Millan. Here’s a quick low-down on the reasoning behind the illusion collar design:
The Illusion Dog Collar & Leash System (Next Generation)
Most dog collars rest on the strongest part of a dog’s neck, giving dogs the leverage they need to take full control of the walk, and of you, too. The Illusion Collar is different — it keeps the slip collar at the top of your dog’s neck so you can more effectively control and correct your dog during walks.
So use your daily walks to school and create a strong, respectful bond between you and your pooch. The great thing about the “school walks” is you are also showing your kids how to Master the Walk at the same time!Share
You’ve heard Cesar explain that the strongest part of a dog’s neck is at the bottom, so if you want to influence the walk by leading your dog, you need to keep the lead near the top where the slightest touch makes a difference.
You can feature this new style, available in red or black, now for pre-orders, with expected ship date August 2nd.
Cesar says: The strongest part of your dog’s neck is at the bottom. If you want to keep control, then you need to keep the lead at the top of your dog’s neck, behind the ears.

Cesar Millan uses training leads as the essential tool for mastering the walk. This English “slip” style lead is similar to a kennel lead, with a black faux leather stop to maintain the appropriate fit around your dog’s neck, as well as helping to keep it behind the ears for maximum control. The braided cotton is comfortable and soft to the hand, while providing gentle padding for your dog. It also features branded black accent sleeves and black matte finish hardware.
Available in one size: 7/16″ diameter x 48″ length. If your dog is a strong puller, we recommend this training lead for dogs up to 65 pounds, otherwise it can be used on all dogs over 10 pounds.
