dog waste service LongmontAnxiety – If you or anyone you know has ever experienced it, you understand how that nervous uncertainty can affect the way in which one copes under stressful circumstances. Fortunately, there are tools that can help us better understand why we might experience such anxiety and ways to help ease it. This holds true with our canine companions. That’s right, humans aren’t the only ones who suffer from this disorder. While we may better understand the cause and effects of anxiety, our puppy pals may not. Just as with people, it’s good to be able to understand and identify what causes stress and anxiety in our fur babies to better help them cope.

While there are various reasons that can cause doggies to suffer from anxiety, separation anxiety is the most common, according to PetMD. Other causes can include past traumatic experiences, such as abuse, aging, illness, pain, depravation of socialization, or environmental factors, as in storms or loud noises. Our fur babies reactions to such causes can be mild to very severe, ranging from trembling to hiding, trying to escape, or even destructive behavior and dangerous aggression.

If you believe that your canine companion suffers from anxiety, there are steps that can be taken to help your furry friend.

  • Talk to Your Veterinarian: Get a definitive diagnosis. There could be underlying health issues causing the behavior.
  • Behavior Modification: Work on keeping your dog calm in stressful situations, such as thunderstorms. While a typical response would be to show reassurance in these instances, it’s not necessarily the right thing to do. Desensitizing, for example, is repeated exposure to stimuli that causes the fear or anxiety. This method is used with the goal of reducing the negative response in the pup over time.
  • Medication: There are medications available to treat extreme cases of anxiety and fear in doggies, but such medications aren’t suitable for all pets. Again, talk to your veterinarian about options.
  • Prevention: This is always the best measure, especially if you have a young pup. Environmental and social exposures at a very young age can greatly reduce fearful behavior and anxiety.

Helping your dog cope is key when it comes to overcoming the negative behavior exhibited from anxiety and fear.Identifying the cause of such fears is the first step in working towards a happy, healthy canine companion. If too much doggy doo is the problem, the team at Scoopy Doo’s of Longmont is always happy to help! Call us today for all of your pet poop removal needs.

Summer has arrived, which means more of us will be out with our canine companions enjoying all that beautiful Colorado has to offer. From hiking trails and bike paths, to reservoirs and dog parks, it’s easy to find a place to spend some quality outdoor time with our pups. That being said, it’s likely that you will encounter that abandoned pile of poo, left behind by some random “joe” lacking consideration for the rest of us. Don’t be that random “joe”, pick up your pup’s poop and help keep Colorado clean. If you need a dog poop removal company, Scoopy Doo’s of Longmont offers their services in Boulder, Longmont, and throughout Boulder County.

While doggy doo doesn’t necessarily impact the air quality, it can have a negative impact on our soil and water. For example, if dog poop ends up in a body of water, the decomposition can cause an overgrowth of weeds and algae due to certain pathogens and nutrients that are found in the poop. This can diminish the water quality, which directly affects the environment. Dog doody also contains parasites and bacteria that can easily be transmitted to humans via the soil (yuck!), so it’s important to not only pick up the poo but dispose of it properly. Be courteous of other humans and canines when you hit the great outdoors this summer. Your doggy will inevitably have to take care of business, so make it your business to clean it up!

Scoopy Doo’s of Longmont has been keeping Boulder County clean for over 20 years. Not only do they offer residential pet waste removal, but HOA’s and Commercial businesses can also take advantage of Scoopy Doo’s waste removal services. Don’t forget, Scoopy Doo’s of Longmont also sells environmentally friendly waste disposal bags that are 100% oxo-biodegradable. Call us today for all of your pet waste removal needs!

I hate winter! I despise snow! It freezes, it melts, We never know if we’ll be getting poop sickles or slush poopies! Snow wreaks havoc on our schedule. I just want everyone to know, if snow is forecast, we will be out daylight till dark, dooing  our best to get crap done! A reminder also, if the poop stays the pay stays. We can easily tell if you have pitched in and will discount appropriately. Billing is based on 30 days worth of doggy doo, not per visit. In 22 years I have never had a problem staying on top of it! We go insane when our beautiful schedule get rearranged by mother nature. I am always praying for no snow and have all the kids in school praying for a snow days. Sadly I am out numbered. School such fond memories. So here is my revamped rendition of  a old school jingle.  Yes I do have it for brains. So fun thinking this crap up.
