Rainbow Wags July 2023

Northern California lucked out with the cool weather this spring, but summer is here and it is HOT out! Caring for pets in hot spells can be a challenge. Hot weather dangers are everywhere – from foxtails, hot pavement, dehydration, toxic algae blooms, stifling cars and scalding pickup truck beds … maybe our furiends need to stay home! But there are plenty of ways to cool off your favorite critters and Rainbow Ag can help! Check out the mister systems for yards and decks – simple to set up, a mister system can keep the whole family cooler. Rainbow also has a selection of wading pools for your dog, and you! Cooling beds, frozen treats, pool floaties, flotation vests, electrolyte solutions, and more. Have a specific situation? Just ask any of Rainbow’s friendly staff for suggestions.

Hot weather affects more than just dogs and cats. Providing a water source for wildlife and birds is easy if you already have a drip irrigation system in place. Simply place a container among your plants and put a drip emitter in it. When your plants get watered, the bowl is automatically filled! Perfect for bee drinkers too – place a shallow bowl with pebbles or marbles in it, so that pollinators can refresh themselves between flowers. If you have reptiles, be aware that they too can get overheated. Consider turning off any heat lamps and providing a shallow bowl of water in their tank.  Heat-stressed reptiles can develop serious issues including self-harm. Fans and a cooling spritz of water make a big difference.

On July 11th Rainbow Ag and Exclusive pet Nutrition sponsored a fun and interactive Dog Showmanship clinic at Todd Grove park in Ukiah. The event was well attended by young 4-H members and their families. Local professional dog handler Kimberly Mitchell was the official presenter for the event.  Kim has raised, trained, and rescued dogs for five decades. She is a founding member of the Harrier Club of America, a preservation breeder, and owner- handler of show dogs, many of which she has taken to championship levels. Striving to stay abreast of the latest in K9 science, she has attended multiple AKC Health Conferences, Clicker Expos, behavior seminars. She currently leads the Ukiah Shamrock Dog Project.

After watching small animal round robin at the local fairs, Kim noticed many exhibitors could benefit from proper dog  handling tips for the competition. “After all, dogs are not livestock and should not be treated as such.” Read More …
