UPCOMING EVENTS & NEWS

July 2020

 

Here at CGA we are incredibly busy with applications coming in at a record pace. We are doing a good job of keeping up with our virtual home visits but with over 50 applications pending, the most recent and new applicants could very well be waiting until the fall before a dog becomes available.
We appreciate your patience as we do our best to fill each application with the right hound for your family.
Your Hound and Fireworks
Summer fireworks can be stressful on our hounds. If you find your grey is fearful of thunder storms or fireworks here are a few things to try and help them get through it.
Importantly, make sure they have a properly fitted martingale collar with identification tags for a safe return if they do get away.
If you hear a thunderstorm or fireworks try and stay calm and don’t react by talking to them, rushing around for meds or rush around trying to take them off to another place.
Stay positive, don’t get upset. Take a deep breath and remain calm. Remember our greys are masters of reading our emotions, they read them like a book.
Don’t accidentally reward them for negative behavior. This goes with talking to much. If you tell them “good boy” when they are being fearful, pacing and acting stressed they will think it’s the correct behavior. Petting rarely works and often escalates the fear. Reward calm behavior.
Try distraction by getting out some special treats that are just for thunderstorms and make it a positive time.
Give them a safe place to go. Some like a crate, bathtub or closet. A small place will likely make them feel safer. Lighting can help the bright flashes be less obvious.
