Why K9 KlearUp™ works so well:

iStock-August 27, 2012K9 KlearUp™ has a very simple ingredient list with no artificial preservatives (including parabens which have been linked to cancer), artificial chemicals to color, or even artificial chemicals to change product odor.

K9 KlearUp™ is pretty straightforward and there are only six natural ingredients:

Shea Butter: Known for its ability to moisturize and rejuvenate the skin, Shea Butter forms the base for K9 KlearUp™.

Tepezcohuite: As the ingredient that does the real work, Tepezcohuite works with your dog’s body to help build new skin and a healthy coat after injury.

Vegetable emulsifier: This ingredient “smooths out” the Shea Butter / Tepezcohuite mixture, helping K9 KlearUp™ to absorb within about 10 seconds after application (really great for those lickers).

Aloe Vera: Long known for its exceptional skin rejuvenation properties.

Caprylyl Glycol: Tough to pronounce, but easy to understand, this ingredient has moisturizing properties that help soften and smooth the skin. It comes from a coconut extract.

Sorbic Acid: A natural preservative from the Mountain Ash tree.

Ultimately, it’s these simple ingredients that make for a very effective product.

Bringing Home a New Dog:

123RF-16086337_sMake sure you are prepared when bringing home a new dog.  Here is a checklist for you to consider:

  • You’ll need a collar, leash, food, food and water bowls, and some toys.
  • It would be best to bring your new dog home on a weekend or when you will be home for a few days.
  • It would be a good idea to take your dog to the vet as soon as possible.  Arrange for your dog to be spayed or neutered.
  • Determine who will walk the dog and who will feed him.  Will he be allowed on the couch? Where will he sleep?  Are there any rooms in the house that are off limits?
  • Let your dog know from the start who is the boss. When you catch him doing something he shouldn’t, stay calm, and let him know immediately, in a loud and disapproving voice, that he has misbehaved.
  • Decide if you are going to crate train your dog or not.
  • Make sure your dog can get back to you if he gets lost. Your dog should have a tattoo, and/or microchip.  As well, have a tag made for your dog’s collar with his name, your home address and a contact number.  And please remember to licence your dog if this is a requirement where you and your dog live.

No one will ever greet you with as much enthusiasm or provide you with as much loyalty as your dog will. Be patient and you will be rewarded. Have fun!

Can your dog do this?

123RF-6903314_sTeaching your dog tricks can help create an obedient dog.  There are many tricks you can teach your dog to do.  Here are some tricks you can teach your dog:


Hold a treat over your dog’s head and teach him to dance. When he stands on his back legs to reach for the food, say “Dance!” and move your hand in a circle to make the dog pivot. After he turns, give him the food and praise him.

Take A Bow!

Take advantage of your dog’s natural ways to teach more tricks. When he stretches, say “Take a bow!”


Your dog should know how to shake hands before learning this trick. Hold out your hand as if you are going to shake. When your dog lifts his paw to shake, don’t grab it, just pull back your hand, and say “Wave”. Then give your dog a treat.


Traveling With Your Dog!

123RF-12810424_sGoing on a vacation and want to take your dog along?  First decide if your dog should go with you.  If he/she would feel more comfortable with a friend or relative, it is best to leave him/her behind.

However, if you decide to take your dog along, it can be lots of fun.  Here are a few tips for traveling by car with your dog:

  • Make sure you plan lots of pit stops along the way.
  • Make a list of a few vets along the way, just in case.
  • Don’t forget to pack a few of your dog’s favorite toys.
  • Pack any medications your dog may need.  A jar of K9KlearUp™ would be a good thing to take along.
  • Make sure the hotels you have booked are pet friendly.
  • It would be best to take your dog to the vet before you go away, if your dog is overdue for a vet visit.
  • Don’t feed your dog just before the trip. Feed him at least a few hours before, so he won’t be car sick.
  • Make sure your dog cannot roam around inside the vehicle.  You might want to purchase a dog safety belt or carrier.
  • Never leave your dog alone in a car in warm weather, for any length of time.
  • Your dog should always have a sturdy collar with home address and cellphone number on a tag.
