Fear Free® is an educational company whose mission is to alleviate fear, anxiety, and stress in pets. Sounds simple enough, but it turns out that despite our good intentions, we've actually been doing things wrong, as veterinarians, pet professionals, and owners. By learning to listen to pets through their body language and putting ourselves in their place so as to see the world through their eyes, we are on our way to implementing the Fear Free principles. Founded in 2016 by America’s veterinarian, Dr. Marty Becker, Fear Free according to their website, "has become one of the single most transformative initiatives in the history of companion animal practice, providing unparalleled education on emotional wellbeing, enrichment, and the reduction of fear, anxiety, and stress in pets and improving the experience of every human and pet involved." So join the Fear Free movement today as we all play a vital part in this endeavor to take the “pet” out of “petrified,” as their tagline so cleverly quips!To learn more:Veterinary and pet professionals go to FearFreePets.comPet owners go to FearFreeHappyHomes.comPetAbility is sponsored by ADogsBestLifeBox.com when you subscribe to receive their awesome enrichment kits by using the coupon code PETPOD22 to save 10% on your first order and get your free gift, Scout and About Compact Training Pouch (waterproof, clip-on treat pouch with a built in squeaker!)PetAbility is sponsored by HedzUpPets watercollars at SaveDogsFromDrowning.com when you purchase your own watercollar by using coupon code PETPOD22 to save 10%.DisclaimerThe contents of the PetAbilityTM  podcast are for informational purposes only.   The host(s) and their guests make no claims, warranties or representations about the content of these podcasts, or the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of their content.

Meet Dr. Schoenberg, a vet whose unique practice is solely dedicated to hospice and palliative care. To paraphrase her website, hospice is a philosophy that shifts the focus of care away from finding a cure and towards providing comfort, peace, quality of life, and freedom from pain when the pets we love are facing terminal illness or advanced aging. As our pets are living longer and surviving disease processes and injuries that they succumbed to in the not so distant past, hospice and palliative care is a natural evolution in veterinary medicine. Listen to Dr. Schoenberg describe how her practice aids not only pets with chronic and incurable conditions, but also their caregivers as they struggle with heart-wrenching medical dilemmas, caregiver fatigue, and end-of-life decisions. Go to Autumn Care & Crossings to find Dr. Schoenberg or email her at autumnvet@gmail.com.PetAbility is sponsored by ADogsBestLifeBox.com when you subscribe to receive their awesome enrichment kits by using the coupon code PETPOD22 to save 10% on your first order and get your free gift, Scout and About Compact Training Pouch (waterproof, clip-on treat pouch with a built in squeaker!)

Chris and Cathy talk often about enrichment in their podcast.  But what exactly is enrichment for our pets? Listen to animal enrichment expert, Amanda Shyne, help us understand why enrichment is not simply a nice to have but a need to have. Enrichment is the action of improving the quality of something - in our case, an animal's life. Enrichment brings joy and makes our pets feel alive, a need that contributes to their sense of well-being beyond the basic requirements of food, shelter, and medical care.  Enrichment satisfies your pet’s physical and psychological needs by providing a perception of control over their environment, often mimicking natural behaviors, and offering choice. To put it simply, enrichment is caring. Creating an enrichment practice with your pet is easier than you think and can take on a variety of forms! Listen to this episode to learn how.

Most dogs that drown do so from exhaustion. This episode introduces an innovative collar, called HedzUpPets watercollar, that can save your dog from drowning, even if they lose consciousness. A typical doggie life vest cannot. Exhaustion can develop when dogs are unable to extricate themselves from a pool or they start swimming across the lake after those ducks. Sometimes the intention may not be for your dog to swim at all – they fall into the pool or out of a boat or off a cliff into a river when running in the woods. Imagine seeing your dog flailing; they are unable to get out of the water despite your desperate attempts. Of course, you can jump in if your dog is small enough to lift out of the water, doesn't dunk you under in the process, and you have adequate aquatic life-saving skills. But what if you don't see it? What if you are not there? There are some things in life that are far too precious to leave to chance, and your dog's life is one of them.To learn more about HedzUpPets watercollars and order yours today go to: SaveDogsFromDrowning.comFollow on social media at:FaceBook: HedzuppetsInstagram: @HedzuppetsPetAbility is sponsored by ADogsBestLifeBox.com when you subscribe to receive their awesome enrichment kits by using the coupon code PETPOD22 to save 10% on your first order and get your free gift, Scout and About Compact Training Pouch (waterproof, clip-on treat pouch with a built in squeaker!)PetAbility is sponsored by HedzUpPets watercollars at SaveDogsFromDrowning.com when you purchase your own watercollar by using coupon code PETPOD22 to save 10%.DisclaimerThe contents of the PetAbilityTM  podcast are for informational purposes only.   The host(s) and their guests make no claims, warranties or representations about the content of these podcasts, or the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of their content.

If you’re listening to PetAbility, then you’ve likely had a fantasy at some point in your life about having a rescue, likely for dogs, cats, or even farm animals. But I bet you never dreamed of having a fish rescue!! Dive in as fish rescuer extraordinaire, Gwendolyn Church of Friends of Philip Fish Sanctuary, tells us what it takes to properly care for fish while dispelling myths and bringing tons of compelling information about fish ownership to the surface. Her goal is that our fish not simply survive, but actually thrive in their homes! “Fishes are sensitive, intelligent animals who deserve so much more than we give them,” says Gwendolyn. Fish are different from ALL other animals because they have gills, fins, and live only in the water. However, these differences don’t mean that they are any “less than” our furry friends. So let’s make an o’fish-ial commitment to spread the word about our fish friends and the care they warrant!

Buddy’s downward dog stretch you see in the early morning is integral to his overall wellness. Stretching maintains or increases the flexibility of soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, joint capsules, etc.) and helps to prevent injury by prepping the body for activity. Proper flexibility makes any movement easier. Pets tend to lose flexibility as they age or as a result of an injury – both situations limit their ability to stretch on their own. As owners, we need to stretch our pets to help them move easier or heal faster. Listen to Cathy and Chris give tips on how to:Get your pet's cooperation for a stretching session;Warm up the tissue before stretching; Stretch the major muscle groups; andMonitor different signals while stretching your pet.Listen to this episode and stretch your mind so you can stretch your pet.

What do you get when you take people and dogs of all shapes and sizes and ask them to race through an obstacle course? AGILITY! Of course, there's lots more to it than that, but agility is fundamentally about enhancing the relationship with your dog. Essentially, you learn to talk to one another!  You learn how to read their signals, motivate them, and communicate your desired outcome through verbal and non-verbal cues. Agility is a very versatile sport that can accommodate any team that wants to try it, but mostly it's tons of fun. You may choose never to compete (and most don't), but you can still reap the benefits of relationship building, physical exercise, mental acuity, confidence boosting, and enrichment - and that's just for you, not to mention your dog!! So go find an agility class near you and embrace the obstacles on the course!To find Nolan, email her at iluvk9s@gmail.com or contact Riverside Canine Center in Nashua, NH.

Sensory input is smell (a huge part of the dog's brain in devoted to this so give them something savory to smell), hearing (play a relaxing soundtrack), vision (bring them outside to watch the squirrels), taste (give them their favorite yummy treat) and touch - warmth/cool, massage, brushing, vibration, pressure, etc. Why is all this important? Because it changes your pet's brain to promote healing. By providing comfortable, novel, positive sensory experiences, we can impact our pet's ability to recover from trauma. Listen to Amie Hesbach, PT, DPT, MS, NCPT, CCRP, CCRT, CKTP, describe how new pathways between the brain and the body are created to teach old dogs new tricks given the right sensory input and environment!To find Amie go to Empower Physio Pet or Empower Physio Teachable.PetAbility is sponsored by ADogsBestLifeBox.com when you subscribe to receive their awesome enrichment kits by using the coupon code PETPOD22 to save 10% on your first order and get your free gift, Scout and About Compact Training Pouch (waterproof, clip-on treat pouch with a built in squeaker!)PetAbility is sponsored by HedzUpPets watercollars at SaveDogsFromDrowning.com when you purchase your own watercollar by using coupon code PETPOD22 to save 10%.DisclaimerThe contents of the PetAbilityTM  podcast are for informational purposes only.   The host(s) and their guests make no claims, warranties or representations about the content of these podcasts, or the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of their content.

Dogs navigate their environment through their amazing sense of smell. So why not utilize this natural gift through practicing nose and scent work with your canine companion?  It doesn't have to be formal or fancy, although there are classes and competitions aplenty. This relatively new sport (~2007) uses the canine olfactory system to solve problems and instill confidence. Moreover, EVERY dog can - and should - do this because it's what they are born to do! And when it comes to enrichment and gentle movement, this is an activity that senior dogs, physically disabled dogs, and blind or deaf dogs can master! Listen to Michele share what nosework is, how its trained, and its myriad of benefits.Click here to find Michele and more info about nosework.Click here for the National Association of Canine Scent Work.PetAbility is sponsored by ADogsBestLifeBox.com when you subscribe to receive their awesome enrichment kits by using the coupon code PETPOD22 to save 10% on your first order and get your free gift, Scout and About Compact Training Pouch (waterproof, clip-on treat pouch with a built in squeaker!)PetAbility is sponsored by HedzUpPets watercollars at SaveDogsFromDrowning.com when you purchase your own watercollar by using coupon code PETPOD22 to save 10%.DisclaimerThe contents of the PetAbilityTM  podcast are for informational purposes only.   The host(s) and their guests make no claims, warranties or representations about the content of these podcasts, or the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of their content.
