Many Wire-Haired Dachshunds have long hair between toes. It is important to keep it short, but not entirely shave it (talk to your groomer!)
Hair between pads and toes is an important protection for our dog's feet.
We use scissors with blund tips to groom feet and hair on sensitive body parts.
Parvovirus is a deadly disease!
Please keep your puppy's booster vaccination schedule and consecutive Parvo/Distemper vaccinations up to date.
And please test titers two weeks after the last puppy booster (at 16 weeks.)
Only a titer result can prove your dog has immunity.
Although it’s not “parvo season” we have seen a number of cases this holiday season and wanted to send a reminder.
Canine parvovirus (parvo) is a highly contagious viral disease that can be a life-threatening illness in both puppies and unvaccinated dogs. It can be transmitted by any person, animal or object that comes in contact with an infected dog’s feces.
Puppies, adolescent dogs, and adult dogs who are not vaccinated are all at risk of contracting the virus. Protecting your puppy or dog from parvovirus could save his or her life.
Here are some Tips to Prevent Parvovirus in Your Dog or Puppy
1. Make sure your dog is properly vaccinated. The parvo vaccine is included in the DA2PP vaccine. It is recommended to begin vaccinations at 6-8 weeks of age, with 2 subsequent booster vaccines 3-4 weeks apart until 16 weeks of age. The vaccine will be given again at one year following the last booster and then on an annual to every 3 years depending on the vaccine used. It’s also important to remember that your puppy is still at risk until at least 2 weeks after their third vaccination. If your dog has never had a vaccine, it’s never too late to start.
2. Limit your puppy or unvaccinated dog’s exposure to other dogs. Avoid places where your puppy or unvaccinated dog could be exposed to parvovirus from unvaccinated dogs. Dog parks, pet stores, play groups, and other public areas should be avoided until your puppy or dog is fully vaccinated. Even though it’s not an airborne virus, Parvovirus can live in the ground and environment. Parvovirus is very difficult to kill with common detergents and disinfectants and can live in the environment for over a year.
3. If your dog or puppy is vomiting, has diarrhea, is lethargic and/or not eating, you should call your vet as soon as possible. While the above can be symptoms of parvovirus, infected dogs may show only one symptom. A pet infected with parvovirus can very quickly decompensate and should be seen by a vet as soon as possible; this is a life-threatening illness.
4. Don’t forget to regularly vaccinate your dog! Disease prevention is always less costly than treating a condition your pet has developed. Dogs with parvo are hospitalized and treatments can frequently cost upwards of hundreds to thousands of dollars while the DA2PP dog vaccine that includes protection against parvovirus is much more cost effective.
Not sure if your dog is up to date or if you want to book an appointment, give us a call today!
I have permission to re-post this post from Tara Bear, originally posted in the United Blood Trackers group.
We are very proud of little Cayoose Odin❤
"I would like to introduce everyone to the new tracker in our family. Ahornzwinger's Cayoose Odin. This is Miss Alice's nephew.
He is 12.5 weeks old. This was his second track. Approximately 60 yards aged 25 minutes using a tracking shoe and approximately half an ounce of blood. It was above freezing this morning when I took everything out for laying a track. We've had a cold front move in and I was questioning whether we should lay and run this or not. He did not let the wind bother him and I couldn't be more proud of his performance. He was very methodical on his first track as well.
Thank you, Christiane Benoit for our wonderful new puppy!"
Chiniki and Cree had their booster vaccination appointment and health check today.
They are super fit and Chiniki is ready to charm her new ❤person on Monday.
If you need help with folding boxes, we would gladly offer our services 😉
Interesting information about various studies on veterinary use of CBD
Thank you, Teresa and Rudy, for the absolutely delicious deer roast! What a feast!

Tracked a squirrel and carried it 300 yards to home!
So proud of you, girl😍
Thank you, for the photos Patrick!
Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas!
Chiniki is tracking like Willi, little interest for food, but very scent oriented👍🦌
Outside for 2 minutes today for a short food track in the snow. Cree is very food motivated and methodical step-by-step, like her mother.🦌👍

Second day at home, Chippewa has already claimed that prime dog bed.
She traveled well.
Who's the new boss in town😉?
Thank you, Patrick, for integrating Chippi into your pack!
Second day at home, Cayoose Odin is outside a lot, slowly makes friends with Alice and is definitely played out in the evening 😘
We did not manage that here.
Thank you, Tara and John!
First day at home, Chinook looks like a king.
He is very social, uses the pee pad nicely and has tracked a drag line already😘.
Thank you, for the great work, Teresa and Rudy!
And then, there were two❤
Chiniki will move into her new home in January.
John, Tara and Odin yesterday 😍
Thank you for the photos!
Best of luck to Patrick Mcdonagh and Chippewa on their way to New York🌹🐾
Chippi will be a versatile hunting dog and will be trained for blood-tracking.
Many adventures together and safe travels!
Cayoose Odin at his new home🏡
It is a very special recognition for a breeder, when a successful handler chooses a second dog from another litter.
We can't thank Tara Bear and John enough, with Alice and Daisy, to have chosen Odin - or did he choose them?
Cayoose Odin is a very active male, who we reserved only for a special hunting/tracking home.
Tara fell in love with Odin at the APET .
We know he will have amazing adventures to look forward to .
All the best for Tara, John, Daisy, Alice with Odin 🌹🐾
Today, we took Cayoose Odin, Chippewa, Chiniki and Cree to the Calgary 911 Centre for a day trip to socialize with a team of dispatchers.
We really appreciate all of the 911 team, who met, cuddled and played with the puppies.
Thank you, Tara Bear, for organizing this amazing get-together.
These 4 puppies have now met a total of 52 people in their first 9 weeks!
Thank you, everyone ❤
