From September 20 through September 26, 2015 is Deaf Dogs Awareness Week.From "10 Reasons Why Deaf Dogs Rock"
- 10. Deaf Dogs Rock because they are not afraid of Fourth of July fireworks, thunderstorms or neighbors shooting their guns while doing target practice!
- 9. Deaf Dogs Rock because when you are out in public with your deaf dog, our deaf dogs are so tuned into our every move, other people don’t have a clue your deaf dog is deaf (and our deaf dogs “listen” to us better then most hearing dogs)!
- 8. Deaf Dogs Rock because when you are in a big group dog training class with new people (and none of them know your dog is deaf) you can give your dog all these cool secret hand signals and he does cool tricks (the coolest part is when you look up, everyone is staring at you with a look of amazement).
- 7. Deaf Dogs Rock because you can sneak into the kitchen for a late night snack, open a bag of potato chips and your deaf dog doesn’t notice (unless you are close enough to the dog he/she can get a scent of your snack.
- 6. Deaf Dogs Rock because they can smell an intruder (and feel the vibration of a car coming from a distance) way before your hearing dogs can see an intruder.
- 5. Deaf Dogs Rock because because if they are asleep when you get home from work, they stay asleep (that is until they smell your scent) instead of jumping all over you when you walk in the door.
- 4. Deaf Dogs Rock because you can take your deaf dog to big events like Pet Expos and they can’t hear all the other dogs barking.
- 3. Deaf Dogs Rock because you can play Rock/Country/Hip Hop/Rap Music or sing in the shower as loud as you want and your deaf dog won’t even notice!
- 2. Deaf Dogs Rock because they are the ultimate Velcro dog. No matter where you are located in your house you always will have a shadow following you around from room to room.
- 1. The number one reason Deaf Dogs Rock is because they Hear With Their Hearts!

Wonderful trainer Patricia Mcconnell has some great reminders for us as the Fourth of July comes up. Here are the first thee items on her thoughtful list:
- First and foremost, don’t take your dog out to a July 4th celebration! Period. Even super stable dogs who appear oblivious to loud sounds can be affected by just one especially loud boom. Sometimes you won’t see the symptoms until long after the event, so don’t assume a dog who looks “just fine” isn’t being affected by loud noises.
- Better safe than sorry: Be sure that your dog has identification on at all times. Even the most responsible of owners can end up with a dog who slips its collar and runs away (or goes out of a window) during an especially loud burst of sound. Many dogs are lost during firework displays and thunderstorms; don’t let it be one of yours.
- If you know that your dog is sound sensitive, plan ahead. Stay home if you can, keep your dog in a quiet place as far away from exterior walls and windows as possible, and consider a range of tools to help a fearful dog cope, from body wraps like “Thundershirts” to soothing music to medication for truly serious cases (for more information, see links below).

If you've been following the news, you'll know there is a serious outbreak of Canine Influenza going around the U.S. It has already been documented in California. There is not yet a vaccine for this strain of the dog flu, so for the moment this is a serious concern.
At CITIPETS, we take your dog's health as seriously, and we are working very hard to try and keep our customers as healthy as possible. But to succeed, we need your help. If you are a client of CITIPETS, and
if you see your dog coughing, sneezing, or showing signs of a runny nose or fever, please call usand let us know that your best friend can't come play with us at the Playground, or go for walkies with the other dogs, until you and your dog have had a chance to go to the vet and get Canine Flu (or other contagious disease) ruled out.
If you think your dog might be sick:
Keep her home
Take her to the vet
Don't let her interact with other dogs until you know the diagnosis
Thank you for working with us on this, for the good of all our beloved pets.
