Spanky Brought Joy to Each Day
We were looking for a red female dachshund, fell in love with a darling dapple
dachshund and on a July day excitedly
brought home two dachshunds. Spanky
stole our hearts, and brought joy to every
day. He was gentle, loveable, laid back,
and devoted. He made us laugh or smile
each day. Spanky suffered a spinal injury
in 2009 and with our love and devotion
learned to walk again and continued to
be part of our family. We got an extra year
with him, and he never waivered in his
love and devotion to us.

close to my neck as if to say, “It’ll be OK,

neck and ears, relaxing. He reminds us
that laughter is a good healer. Little did

Home Alone: Training, New Products Can Ease Dog’s Separation Anxiety
by Judy Stringer
Separation anxiety is one of the most
common problems dog owners encounter,
according to dog behavior specialist Karen
Arnoff of the Dog-Owner Connection in
Solon. When separated from their owners
some dogs with separation
anxiety chew
on door frames or window sills, dig at
doorways or destroy household objects
when left alone. Others may whine, bark
or howl, driving the neighbors crazy, or
they may urinate or defecate in the home.
7”never has to be alone.
“In the wild, a dog
However, this is not true in domestication. Therefore, you must teach your dog
to tolerate separation and confinement
rather than just expecting him to quietly
endure it,” Arnoff said.
He advised owners to start small by
putting up a gate and sitting on the other
side or putting your new puppy in a crate
and sitting nearby. Reward the dog once
he settles down. Gradually increase your
distance, rewarding the dog when he relaxes, until you are outside. Next, work
on increasing your time out of the home,
beginning with 30 seconds and gradually
stretching the away time.
Pheromone products can be useful in
calming a dog left alone, said Kristin
Branagan, director of animal behavior
and adoption services for Twinsburgbased Pawsibilities, the Humane Society
of Greater Akron. Created to mimic their
mother’s pheromones, Branagan said
she has seen “remarkable results” with
products like D.A.P.-based sprays and
diffusers. She also likes Thundershirt, a
garment that fits snuggly around a dog
akin to swaddling a baby.

Branagan said to watch for cues you,
often unintentionally, send to your dog.
Do not make a big deal about leaving,
for example, and ignore the dog for a few
minutes upon arriving home. “When you
come home and greet the dog and get
excited, you are affirming the idea that
he should be excited and happy when you
are home,” she said.
If you suspect boredom is to blame,
there are a number of enrichment toys
designed to keep dogs distracted. After
the dog has had the toy for a few hours,
however, take it away for two or three
days and reintroduce it or you may find
the toy loses its charm, Branagan said. ∞

increased utilities.

Pets Supplement Section, 2012
Dogs need a few more recommended
preventative measures and generally cost
more than cats, although when it comes
to illnesses, the expenses are similar.
Zarle said that pet insurance has become
more popular because some policies now
cover wellness checkups in addition to
major medical expenses. She recommends
that healthy pets visit a veterinarian once
a year. “They need a physical once a year
because one year
in the animal’s life is
three to seven years in human life.”
Despite the expense, six in 10 Americans own pets, and
7”a Gallup poll shows
that people believe pets are good for them.
A WebMD feature by Jeanie Lerche Davis
states that pet ownership can lower blood
pressure, lessen anxiety and boost immunity. Animals can ease people out of social
isolation or shyness.
Alzheimer’s patients with an animal in
the home have fewer anxious outbursts,
and their caregivers often feel less burdened when there is a pet present, particularly a less care-dependent pet, like a cat.
Walking a dog exercises the human, too,
and playing with a dog may elevate serotonin and dopamine, nerve transmitters
with pleasurable and calming properties.
Since the 1980s, studies have shown
keeping an aquarium helps people relax
and improves mental and physical health.
Reports show that watching fish swim can
help calm hyperactive children and that
patients waiting for dental appointments
in areas with an aquarium required less
pain medication than those who waited
in rooms without aquariums.
Most pet owners do not need Gallup
to tell them why they own their pets.
“Sparkie brings a lot of joy to our lives,”
said pet-owner Michelle Gauthier. “When
you come home in a bad mood, she comes
running up to you like she hasn’t seen
you for ages. She is so excited, and it just
makes you happy. She is worth the cost.”
Sparkie is a Jack Russell terrier (a small
dog), and Gauthier pays about $4.50 a
week to feed her and give her treats.
Two-year-old schnauzer Jackie Ruth is a
small dog, too. Her human, Jim McKay,
said that he pays $25 a month for food
and about $40 every six weeks for her
“beauty parlor” visits. “Yes, pet care is
expensive,” said McKay, “but Jackie is a

member of the family. She brightens our
days. She is well worth the cost as she gives
back lots of love.”
Craig Tallman said that his cats, Stanley,
Gyzmo and guest cat, Lola, are part of
the family and must consider themselves
the homeowners based on the way they
carry on around the house. He added that
their food is expensive because of Gyzmo’s
allergies, but as far as costs go, Tallman
considers himself lucky because the cats
are healthy.
Animal care experts offer a few tips to
cut pet care expenses. The most recommended are: get annual wellness checkups
to head off more costly treatments, invest
in the proper food for the pet’s specific
needs to cut health issues, home groom,
make healthy pet treats at home and
consider buying pet health insurance. ∞
