PUPPY BREATH VIALS ARE DOING VERY WELL - AS CHRISTMAS GIFTS I SUPPOSE..
CHRISTMAS CERTAINLY  PROVIDES THE STRESSFUL ENVIRONMENT WHICH MAKES PUPPY BREATH SO NECESSARY !!!
 
NOW TO THE MECHANICS OF RUNNING THIS SERVICE DOG PROCECT..
 
FROM THE RESPONSE I HAVVE HAD ABOUT SENDING US THE 3 X 6 CEREAL BOX (TYPE) CARDBOARD FOR OUR POO COLLECTION PROCESS... I MAY HAVE CAUSED A VOLUME PROBLEM WITH THE CUTE LITTLE POSTAL VEHICLE THAT DELIVERS OUR MAIL/.  WE WILL SEE. IT IS NOT A PROBLEM YET... CHOMP ON
 
AND THEN THERE IS THE NICE UPS  MAN-- THANK HEAVENS IT IS NOT THE ONE FROM 5 YEARS AGO WHO  HELPED NAKED ME LIFT A PUP OFF A FENCE WHERE HE WAS STUCK....  BUT THAT IS ANOTHER STORY..
 
DELIVERY OF THE PRESENTS YOU ALL ARE SENDING HAS STYMIED ME AS TO HOW TO THANK YOU ALL--  THE BOXES NEVER HAVE THE NAME OF WHO DONATED THE CONTENTS--- SO MAYBE I SHOULD JUST  PUT MY THANKYOU'S IN THIS DAILY DOGGIE
YESTERDAY'S FEDEX AND UPS DELIVERIES WERE LOVELY BOWLS THAT FIT EXACTLY IN THE WHITE COSTCO CAKE MIX BUCKETS ( MY "RAISED FEEDERS")   WE HAVE 16 MORE DOGS TO FEED INDIVIDUALLY- AND THEY ARE SOON TO OUT GROW THE CUTE LITTLE DISHES WE HAVE ON THE FLOOR.
 
ALSO A 5 GAL GAS CAN TO PROVIDE A HOT WATER BOTTLE SNUGGLE PLACE SO WE CAN GET THESE PUPS ON AN IN/OUT BASIS-- AND OUT OF MY KITCHEN !!
I DON'T REALLY MEAN THAT-- IF THEY WERE NOT THERE SOME FOOL MIGHT EXPECT ME TO COOK..
 
 A LOVELY BIG DOG BED AND RAISED BED.. A BUNCH OF WAFFLE BALL TOYS THAT THEY LOVE.
 
SO THANKS TO ALL..
 
NEXT PROBLEM
YEARS AGO-- WHEN WE WENT THRU ACCREDIATATION- I WAS FORCED TO DEFINE VOLUNTEER LEVELS OF ACTIVITY-  OUR USUAL RULES 
 
RULES WHILE AT
THE SERVICE DOG PROJECT:
IF IT’S BROKEN, FIX IT
IF IT’S DIRTY, CLEAN IT
IF IT’S SMELLY, PICK IT UP
IF IT’S EMPTY, FILL IT
IF YOU TRIP OVER IT, MOVE IT
IF IT’S GOT FOUR LEGS AND A TAIL, LOVE IT
IF IT’S GOT TWO LEGS AND
DRIVES A GREEN GOLF CART
LISTEN VERY CLOSELY TO IT....


THESE RULES LASTED WELL FOR  MANY YEARS  MOSTLY BECAUSE WE HAD SOME STEADY VOLUNTEERS WHO LEARNED THE ROPES AND BECAME EXTREMELY VALUABLE.
 
 CURRENTLY WE HAVE MANY MORE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO COME OUT AND HELP- WHICH CAN BE WONDERFUL IF THEY CAN SLIDE INTO AND ALREADY EXISTING  SYSTEM OF EXTREMELY BRIGHT PEOPLE WHO JUST GET THINGS DONE WITH A MINIMUM OF FORMALITY.
 
WHAT DOES NOT WORK IS TO COME HERE AND TRY AND REDESIGN A WELL OILED SYSTEM WITH TOO MANY WORKING PARTS FOR ANYONE TO UNDERSTAND IN A FEW DAYS  VOLUNTEERING.
 
THIS LACK OF MICROMANAGING IS DUE TO TH EFACT THAT  99.8% HAVE BEEN HER 5 YEARS OR MORE  AND HAVE LEARNED HOW TO DEAL WITH THE DOGS..(AND ME)
 
THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS IF ANYONE ARRIVES WITH THE CONCEPT OF KNOWING HOW TO TRAIN A DOG-- USUALLY A  100% friendly golden-- THIS  is in direct conflict with THE WAY DANES OPERATE.
 
SO TO PUT IT AS SIMPLY AS I CAN...... IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN HERE 5 YEARS, YOU MUST NEVER USE YOUR MUSCLES TO CONTROL OR HANDLE A DANE OF OURS.
 
THESE DOGS WILL EVENTUALLY BE HANDLED BY SOMEONE WITH LIMITED PHYSICAL CAPABILITIES-- FURTHERMORE THEY WILL WEIGH 140 POUNDS OR MORE.
 
SPECIFICALLY THIS GETS DOWN TO  YOU MUST LET THE DOGS/PUPS  COME TO  YOU AND THEN YOU MIGHT PAT THEM.   YOU MUST NEVER RESTRAIN THEM BY HUGGING OR HOLDING.  YOU MUST LET THEM ROAM FREELY IN WHATEVER ENCLOSURE THAY ARE IN.
 
 OF COURSE YOU MUST NEVER ROUGHHOUSE OR CHASE THEM.   THAT WORKS OUT TO NOT WALKING TOWARD THEM IF THEY CAN NOT  EASILY GET AWAY
 
DANES ARE TIMID- AND THEY WILL COME TO  PEOPLE BUT IT MUST BE ON THEIR TERMS.
 
WE HAVE HAD SOME BAD SCENES WHERE PEOPLE HAVE CHASED DOGS. "JUST PLAYING"  BUT THE DOGS DON'T THINK SOME STRANGER RUNNING AT THEM IS FUN.  AND IT TAKES US MONTHS TO GET THEM  OVER THAT EXPERIENCE. 
 
 FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE  PUPS AND DOGS IN TRAINING--THESE RULES WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED.  THEY HAVE TO BE. 
 
OTHER THAN THAT......
  THE WASHER IS IN TH  ROOM AND THE NEW DRYER IS NEXT TO THE OLD WASHER IN THE LAUNDRY--  BOTH ARE IN THE PROCESS OF GETTING  HOOKED UP
MEGAN'S FATHER IS HELPING WITH THAT DEAL.
 
CHaos pups are on the DECK DURING THE DAY--- AND MAYBE EVEN TH ENUTT HOUSE AND MOVE MOXIE PUPS TO THE DECK SOON
JUST IMAGING A HOUSE WITH NO POOPING DURING THE DAY... THEY WOUL D HAVE TO COME IN AT NIGHT TO THEIR USUAL BEDROOM TV ROOM.
 
IT MAKES FOR LIVELY CAMERA POSITIONS-- BEWARE OF EXTENSION CORDS DRAPPED ALL OVER.
 
MOXIE'S PUPS NO LONGER STAY INSIDE THE BARRIER...  NEEDING A BIGGER BARRIER... MORE X  FENCING.
 
AND WILLOW GOT SLAPPED DOWN BY EITHER OPAL OR BENTLY- WHEN SHE TRIED TO STEAL SOME OF THE TREATS FROM THE  YUPPY PUPPY  MACHINE
 
GOT TO GET MORE DOGS USING THAT FOR AMUSEMENT.
 
WHHCH IS WHAT I WILL DO NOW.

  4. I was wondering if instead of using cereal box cardboard for pooper scoopers, you could use card stock cardboard instead??
