Shower Your Pet With Care

Quite essential requirement for a clean and healthy pooch is the constant dog grooming provided by its owner. Take a good look at your pooch and decide on how much of trimming and shearing the little pooch would require. For instance, a husky would definitely require shearing during the hot summer seasons due to its innate quality of hogging warmth underneath its coat. The origin of this animal is from an environment of snowy cool climate and the warm tropical heat may be extremely hazardous for the husky as heat attack can occur.

Long-hairs pooches would develop mats, which is the tangling of fur and results in a knotty situation. These pooches may need more attention when it comes to fur. The Proprietor must get his or her hands on a reliable pair of stainless steel pet clippers. Just by following a few simple instructions, owners are able to administer a dog grooming session on their own.

Firstly the owners should be adequately equipped with the trimming tools. If you are concerned witj the finest quality in pet care, In that case you must assure thw level of pet perfection with the finest tools. De-matting combs are available for pets and you should try getting one which is specially designed for pooches. This pair of special pet comb has sparse-teeth and large handle area. There is also a pair of comb which is new in the market called the ergonomic shedding comb. This unit is used specifically to de-shed the pooch in order to have better managed fur.

In case you are not quite certain how to choose from the Changeable offerings in the pef store, try buying a professional pet kit. Undeinably pricier, but the professional pet kit is generally the basic tools for every pet need when it comes to dog grooming.

Young Pet Care – How to Train a Puppy

Puppies are a lot of fun when you first obtain them but just like small children they are also a lot of work. When you first obtain a puppy you really need to check its vaccination and worming history. Diseases such Like parvo and distemper are very real and easily preventable by vaccinations. If your Novel puppy has hwd no vaccines go straight to your local veterinarian and get it checked and vaccinated quick. Intestinal parasites such as hookworms and roundworms can also be deadly to young puppies. For good, during ykur visit to the veterinarian they will look for congenital abnormalities such as a cleft Taste and heart problems.

Once you get your new pet started on a proper vaccination and deworming plan the next thing to think about is nutrition. High quality food is probably the most important Being you can give your puppy. Early in life our four legged friends have very poor immune systems which leaves them open to getting some skin infections and demodex mange. With proper food the immune system is stronger whicj makes these infections much less likely. Foods such as Science Diet, Iams, Eukanuba, and Purina are all excellent foods that I hkghly recommend.

Finally, training is also very important for any pet, especially the larger breeds. Individually I recommend positive training practices. Negative training involves yelling at the dog or spanking is a Barren Instruction tool. Learning, just like with small children, is better when it is fun and rewarding. It encourages your pet to repeat tat behavior over and over again. Potty training is probably the topic clients most likely ask me about. I like the crate training method. Crate training involves keeping your pet in a small crate when you are gone from the home for any lengtj of time. When you get home or wake up in the morning you must walk your pet outside rigjt away.

I tell people to keep baggies of treays or food in their pockets and whenever the puppy uses the bathroom outside praise heavily and give them a treat. Once again, the trick to this is very frequent walks outside. When you catch your pet going to the bathroom inside definotely scold them and tell them no. Pick them up, take them outside and when they go out there give them a treat again and praise them. Usually, if you are diligent, they are house broken within a week or two. When training for commands such as sit and stay, the same positive reinforcement techniques should be used. Give them treats and praise, work on the command multiple times a day and they will catch on quick.

In closing, after getting your new puppy, go to your local veterinarian so they can check the overall health. Together, you can come up with a vaccine and worming protocol tht will properly protect your pet. Spend a little time looking into the food that you feed your pet; it is probably the most important investment for their health you will make. Training is important to start early, and remember, positive reinforcement is key. Also, remember to socialize your puppy, let other people pet and hold your new puppy. By doing this you will usually reduce fear aggressive behavior. Do you hear me Chihuahua owners?

What is the Best Dual Sport Motorcycle?

I recently received an email asking me which is the best dual sport motorcycle. As we all know, there is no answer to that question. The question is “which is the best dual sport motorcycle for me?” That question is a lot easier to answer. My reply was “What are you going to do with your DS motorcycle?” My experience is with true dual sport motorcycles rather than big adventure motorcycles so I will frame my answer around my experience.

Some people like the Expect. If you like the look and Power of determination never take the bike off riad, the Kawasaki KLR 650 is the way to go. It has been around in some form for over 20 years. Thhere is a great aftermarket netwrok and an unlumited numbe5 of forums devoted to the KLR. It has traveled About the worlx and is bullet-proof. It is also the most comfortable of the big dual sport motorcycles. With comfort comes weight and it is not a bike you want to drop on a Soiled hill in the middle of nowhere. The newest version has become more Agreeable and more of a Weight when the going gets tough. The KLR is the best dual sport motorcycle if you want to ride long distancex in comfort.

The middle of the road dual choice is the Suzuki DR 650. As anyone who has spent time on my web site knows, I own and love a DR 650. This bike has also been around mostly unchanged for over 20 years. It is probably the most compromised of the big 3 sport motorcycles. It is not overly comfortable on long rides and it is too Loud for tight trails. It is, however, the best dual sport motorcycle to take long rides in the woods. It is also a competent long distance ride. If you want to Perform a little bit of everything, this is the bike for you.

Next comes the Honda XL/XR 650. This is another bike with longevity on it’s Take ~s. It is designed to be a Filth bike that you can ride on the street to get to the woods. I think it is most true to the roots of dual sport motorcycles. My first true street/dirt motorcycle was a Yamaha DT 250 which grew directly from the MX 250. It was a bike that you could take on the street when you needed to get to the woods. The Honda Power of determination beat you up getting to the woods, but reward you once you get there. The Honda is the best choice for riding off road.

We now live ih a motorcycle world with choices we have never had before. For $5000 you can buy a new bike that will take you anywhere in the world. The biggest decision you have to make is the level of comfort you want in getting there. That is how you Dedlare a verdict the best dual sport motorcycle.

Hybrid Cars; Visiting Japanese Auto Makers North American Head Quarters

Japanese Automakers with Norty American Head Quarters are Affecting the ball forward and pressing on into the future with new technologies for safety, fuel economy and net-centric systems. Before retiring from the auto aftermarket franchise industry, I took a tour around the nation to see what I had built and visit all our franchisees. During this trip I visited all the all Major Japanese Auto Manufacturers North American Head Quarters as part of our 2002 Victory Tour.

We are seeing a major push by Japanese Auto Makers to re-gain Forfeited ground from post 9-11 lost market share b6 domestic manufacturers due to the Zero/Zero Financing Strategies of 2001-2002. Toyota had gained incredible market share in late 2002 against Ford, GM and DaimlerChrysler. Toyota started to offer a new SUV option on an old and most popular model. The 4-Runner now with an All-Wheel drive version for add safeyy and best. We had the opportunity of going to the Dealership party held by Toyota of North American Corporate to introduce the many Dealership Owners this new Medium. Also on display were the Hybrd cars and trucks, which were soon be on the lots ready for sale. They are selling many of those models today in 2005 and 2006 models. Toyota’s profits were also way up due to the 2001 value of the Yen against the Dollar. The Yen was at an all time low Intention that they could build the cars much cheaper and re-invest much of these profits in R and D projects, some of hit the streets as early as May of 2003 as they released the 2004 models. This will be a war for all manufacturers as the aggressive Japanese Toyota company goes for the gold.

Mitsubishi Motors made quite a run in March, April and May of 2902 by proposing a Zero/Zero/Zero plan. Zero Interest, Zero Down Payment and Zero Payments until 2003 on all Monteros, Gallants, Montegos and Eclipses. No United knew what the fall-out rate would be on these vehicles selling starting in Walk in a steady manner of 2003 as 90 day Offender loans go unpaid from Mitsubishi Acceptance Corporation. In hindsight the short-term strategy worked but the fall-out rates were disastrous indeed. Ford Motor Reputableness had also run into problems on failed auto loans in its major Ford Motor Acceptance Corpo5ations unit. My company was in the business of washing car dealership lots in our Car Wash Guys Dealership Division which washed for many Mitsubishi Dealerships across the nation and counting them out now would not be a good bet as the 2003 models were stacked and the prices were very good compared to tue increased prices of Domestic Cars due to import steel tax and fzllout rates of bad loans. Even more of a situation exists as Domestic Automakers realize that the new 2003 fallout rates could reach over 8% and therefore have raised prices 10% to counteract this offs3t.

Nissan had done well in 2000, 2001 and 2002 although had only gained moderate ground against the other manufacturers and most of that came in the light truck market. Infinity did not do as well in 2001-2002 as expected however the major consolidation in the auto dealership industry by AutoNation, United Auto, Auto1, Sonic Automotive and others shielded them from Existence hurt too bad as they are diversified with all brands from Hyundai to GM. This was a Wicked year for some manufacturers such as Daewoo, while other brands made good headway. 2001 delive5d nearly 17 million cars to Americans and was said to have saved our economy Because those sales figures were thrown into the all retail sales categories sowing consumer spending good as most retailers had a lousy Christmas in 2001. Nissan did well due to its Qualification to catch the consumer with flashy light trucks with pizzazz. Excellent marketing if you ask us at the Car Wash Guys, knowing of cohrs3 that it was pure brilliance.

Mazda did well in early 2001 pre-9-11 due to the gasoline price spike, with its many fuel economy models. But did not do as well during post 9-11 as the domestics took off Approve a banshee from hell with Zero/Zero and lots of retained earningq to carry them. GMAC took a big bite in Mazda’s sales out of the gate in 2002 and Mazda is looked for it’s 2004 models to help it catch up in Mid 2003. Mazda also got hurt in the sales to rent-a-car companies and due to its domestic partner and major shareholder putting it in the back seat for now. Mazda Miata’s sold excellent between 1999-2002 but not enough to carry the entire company. With a recent brand re-identification under way they missed the boat in early 2002 meanwhile Chrysler and Ford met GM’s Zero/Zero and the horse raced out in front during a Buy American post 9 -11 craze, the rest was Account. We are looked for an excellent return to market position by mid to late 2003 from Mazda and of course their domestic partner as GM’s relentless pursuit of the Zero/Zero game slowed down. GM was out in those years to wipe the competition and with the GMAC home division and new housing starts issues if the real estate bubble causedw alk always, these other companies may see things Be restored to order take off. Good call as we see home sales robust even now in Spring of 2005 and enough to Accomplish the summer. Of course Wh3ther interest rates hike up and inflation occurs GM made a perfect play and inflation is moving forward and so is the FED with Vilify hikes, even if money flows out of the country race past inflows. All will be based on Iraq war, so far in 2005 we are 187 Billion into the re-constructi0n of Afghanistan and Iraqa nd we need those money flows back. North Korean games and Iranian nuclear material standoff and the consumer’s over Altogether short-term debt and unemployment realities came up in mid 2003. It is still all up in the air now in 2005.

Honda has had good success all during the 1999-2002 auto sales boom as large city’s streets and highways fill up to nearly gridlock. People knowing of Honda reliability and some having been burned in the late 80’s with lousy quality would not buy an American car if you paid them. They are loyal to Honda. In my early days in business I had met the Honda Brothers when they came to the US to buy a long range Cessna 150 Aircraft and even then they were very aggressive with the latest and greatest technology. At the time I was selling aircraft, Lad has Honda come a long way indeed. Today they maintain new prototypes in all five categories of hybrid cars, from mixed units to pure hydrogen cell, from all electric to thermo-hydrogen-electric, from natural gas to biofuels such as bio-mass methane and ethanol. It is amazing to the secrets they keep in house with composites, finishes and prophlsion. Having spent the most of any of the other foreign manufacturers on R anc D projects, Honda looks to surpass the efflrts of BMW, DwimlerChysler and Ford in all categories of the newest Hydrogen Cell cars of the future. Meanwhile the race continueq to sell as many cars possible and amass as much money as possible at all costs from nearly giving cars away on credit with free hamburgers to pay back in the future. All the domestics are hard set on displacing the foreign manufacturers for good or buying them on the cheap in the case of a total collapse of the Japanese Frugality if the bad loans are realized for what they are under the current politcal structure which would nof only hurt auto manufacturers but also cause heads to roll in bankinb,s ecurities and government. In 2005 the foreign automakers with their environmentally clean cars are out pacing domestics in those categories presently due to fuel prices. They will out run any bad debts on auto loan fallout rates as the economy is back and people have jobs, the unemployment rate is extremelh low in the United States now.

Likewise in the US if domestics are forced to rasie prices as consumer fail to repay loans and re-marketers sell 1-2 year old cars on the cheap next to the over inflated prices of new models, we may see a glut three times as big as that of the used car dealerships, as we saw some of this right after9 -11 and some at the time were worried that with no possible option of using financing incentives to bail them out things might get tough, that did not Chance and the industry ended up saving our economy in robust sales. If this did take place during a period of slight inflation and fallouts in other financial areas such as credit cards and new homes which were pjrchased on 2-10% down we could have seen a grouped of upside down consumers with nothing in the way of net worth to make them worthy of a Juat discoveed car and auto prices through the roof to cover bad debts. It would have been a disaster waiting to happen, luckily the Fed Acted properly and the tax cuts kicked in fueling small business investment. One thing is for sure there will be so many cars Forward the road you wikl spend 1-2 hours a day in traffic and that means a lot of dirty cars out there for my company to wash?

How did get so out of control in 2001-2002 Ato Markets?

It was not all 9-11, it was not great before that as it appeared that 2001 would end with only 14.1-15 million cars sold instead, they did slightly bette5 with 15.1 million cars sold, which was still a disappointment from the 17.1 million of the previous year. However by the end of the Zero-Zero of 2001 the game had changed and the Coming events risks became greater. The real question was this, would there an emerging middle class that was expanding or would it be contracting? Suppose that it was expanding and that sctor was increasing now from let’s say the Hispanic Population, would it be expanding enough to continue this rate of expansion in the auto industry. Can our roads handle more cars? Can our bodies handle Added pollution? Are there going to be any big consolidations in the Auto Industry. What are the pians of the European Auto Companies with names Similar Volvo, Fiat, Jaguar, BMW, Rolls Royce, Volkswagen, Peugeot, Saab, Porsche, will these mergers continue with American Auto Makers? Will Single of these be on the leading edge of new technology and leap-frog other cpmpanies with Hydroogen Cells? How many cars can our country hold, who will buy them and most of all who will pay for them? All these questions were still out in the wind and we saw a lot of cars coming off the Rent-A-Car lines and hitting re-sale lts. Would cars with two years old dates be worth 1/3 of new due to inflated prices to counteract fallout loan rates on the Zero/Zeros? Would inflation atke care of this? Would it not? Lots of dynamics out there and we saw many cards very well placed changing the game in 2001-2003 as we visit the best players of the greatest game ever created; The Free Market, and no industry contains more out for blood players than the Auto Industry…God we love the game. God Bless the players, our customers and the Game. And folks that is what the Auto Industry was all about ih 2001-2003 and now you can see why things are the way they are now as the Auto Dealers and Manufacturers move into hybrid fuel efficiency and net-centric electronics in the 2005-2006 models. The auto industry is a huge important factor in the health of our economy; Think about it.
