Earls K9 Services AKA The Original Kansas City Dog Whisperer My mission is to bring Advanced, Humane 21st Century Dog Training to the average dog owner. I teach Management, Pack Structure, Markers and Engagement.

I solve dog problems and teach modern advanced methods unknown to most of the public. I have over 30 years of professional experience. I believe that if you want to have a dog you need to learn to train it yourself. I do not train your dog for you nor do I offer classes or board and train programs or recommend them for obvious reasons. I am a training coach. I teach you not your dog although I do

USE CAUTION WHEN CHOOSING A FLEA & TICK PREVENTIVE FOR YOUR PET! ⚠️🐶🐱

Popular flea, tick and Heartworm🦟 products have a history of being associated with reactions in some dogs and cats including seizures, behavioral issues, muscular/balance issues, and even death.

One class of these pesticides Isoxazoline (found in products like Nexgard, Bravecto and others) is so powerfully potent that it starts killing within two hours after administration! 🤯 In fact, it kills 98.7% of fleas within 24 hours! Because of this, Isoxazoline drugs now carry a warning⚠️ on their labels in both the U.S. and Canada.🇺🇸🇨🇦 Even the FDA-U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning statement for veterinarians and pet parents. 👩🏻‍⚕️

If you need to use a chemical preventive, or if you are looking for safer alternatives, you don’t want to miss today’s Inside Scoop Live episode at noon!

We’ll be discussing natural options, how to know if you really need Heartworm preventives year round, and supplement protocols to help support your pet if you have to give these pesticides. 🙌

Today Rodney Habib and Dr. Karen Becker are joined by special a guest co-host, veterinarian Dr. Judy Morgan D.V.M for this flea, tick and Heartworm extravaganza. We’ll also be covering:

🔥Non-chemical, natural prevention and integrative protocols

🔥What to look for and what to avoid when choosing a chemical pest preventative

🔥 Detox and support protocols when you are giving chemical preventives

…plus our Flea, Tick & Heartworm Guide full of DIY recipes, supplements and more! 📖

Join us Sunday at 12pm ET for this Live discussion. Looking forward to seeing you in the comments! 🙌

EAT & FEED BLUEBERRIES!

In a study conducted on sled dogs, blueberry supplementation elicited significantly elevated antioxidant status in the dogs.

This suggests that dogs fed blueberries should be better protected against oxidative damage. -

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16520073

Aside from being classified as antiangiogenic aka anti-cancer, blueberries contain a compound called pterostilbene, a derivative of resveratrol.

These little blue powerhouses are good antioxidants because they contain phenolics that preferentially react with free radicals.

So, offering your furry companion blueberries can help protect them against cancer!

COCONUT OIL KILLS BACTERIA, VIRUSES AND FUNGI IN/ON YOUR PET!

Ranked in the top 10 most important food medicines, coconut oil is a must add to your pet’s diet! With over 13 Evidence-Based Medicinal Properties, the one we love the most is its yeast-bustin’ abilities!

Almost 50% of the medium-chain triglycerides found in coconut oil are lauric acids, saturated fatty acids that our bodies convert into monolaurin. Monolaurin is one of the natural world's greatest antivirals, antibacterials and antifungals. Because they come from natural sources, these fatty acids pose no danger to your pets' bodies, unlike man-made antibiotics and anti-virals.

Coconut has been used for wound healing for thousands of years. A new study published in the International Journal of Dermatology confirms that coconut oil aides in treating atopic dermatitis, a chronic skin condition characterized by scaly and itchy rashes.

Furthermore, one study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food found that “coconut oil is extremely effective at killing Candida albicans, a common yeast infection in humans.” Another study published in the Journal of Bacteriology discovered that “coconut oil can help kill Staphylococcus aureus, which is a common cause of skin conditions and respiratory diseases.”

The recommended dosage for feeding is:

• ½ teaspoon for every 10lbs of body weight daily

Or, if using topically, just rub the oil on your hands and apply to your pet’s coat (remember not to over do it!).

For 34 more reasons why you should add this wonderful oil, follow this link: http://ow.ly/E56pI

ATTENTION Pet Parents!

A chemical used in Milk-Bones, Ol’Roy, Kibbles’n Bits, Hill’s Pet Food and other pet foods should no longer be considered safe for consumption due to concerns about its ability to damage DNA according to a new animal-model study.

According to the Environmental Working Group: “A scientific panel created by the European Food Safety Authority found that titanium dioxide “can no longer be considered as safe when used as a food additive.” The panel, citing concerns about titanium dioxide’s genotoxicity, or its ability to damage DNA, based its conclusion on a review of hundreds of scientific studies. EWG called on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to quickly consider whether to ban titanium dioxide from use in food."

A chemical that may damage our pet's DNA should not be fed to pets.

Coconut Meat! 🥥

Raw coconut fruit, often called “coconut meat,” is a delicious and nutritious food you should be offering your fur-family!🐶🐱 Both the raw “meat” or unsweetened dried coconut chips make AWESOME training treats for all pets, but are especially beneficial for canine athletes and pets with food allergies that must consume single-ingredient treats.🐾

Coconut meat🥥 is loaded with beneficial, gut-friendly fiber, ligament-building manganese and medium chain triglycerides (MCTs): healthy fats that have a host of longevity-promoting properties, including enhanced cognition🧠, as well as metabolic, digestive and cardiovascular improvements🫀 and antioxidant activity.

You’ll find coconut meat listed in our Grab-and-Go Treat section on page 234 of The Forever Dog book…have you tried these out yet with your #foreverdogs?!

🙋🏼‍♀️Tell us what superfood topper or treat from Chapter 7 you are most excited to try (or have already tried) with your pet!🥰👇

What type of dog water bowl do you use? 🐶💧

The dog water bowl has previously been identified as the third most contaminated🦠 item within the household and can be a breeding ground for dangerous germs & life-threatening bacteria🧫 that can put the entire house at risk, researchers at University Centre Hartpury have revealed.

So, which dish is best to use for a dog water bowl? The bowl that grows the least amount of life-threatening bacteria!

In the first study of its’ kind, Hartpury scientists found stainless steel grew the least amount of bacteria and over time, plastic bowls grew the highest amount, but the shocking part was the most harmful bacterial species (including salmonella, E. coli and MRSA) were most frequently identified in CERAMIC bowls!

Lead can also be a problem when using ceramic bowls, and the endocrine disrupting chemicals found in plastic bowls are a no-go! Also be aware plastic bowls🥣 can cause Plastic Dish Nasal Dermatitis🙀: Chemicals in plastic absorb through the skin and inhibit the synthesis of melanin, leaving the nose👃🏼 and adjacent areas with pink blotches.

So stainless steel🍴 bowls are the safest, right?

Well not so fast…. there’s even been recalls on stainless bowls😫. In our upcoming The Forever Dog book, in the chapter titled Environmental Impact and the section labelled “Toxic Toys, Chews, and Beds", we cover how to choose the best chemical-free bowls🚫 that won’t leach contaminants over time. The Forever Dog is available now for pre-order, worldwide, check out the www.ForeverDog.com/about

Next up on the fresh food treat list to try with your pup: fresh pineapple! 🍍
Pineapple is a good source of vitamin C and beta-carotene that can benefit your dog’s body, especially as they age, but it’s the anti-inflammatory enzymes (Bromelain) that makes this fruit a fantastic snack for the body. Have you tried offering a bite of pineapple to your dog?! 👍🏼👎🏼?

No good for prople either

Synthetic aromas are largely made up of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which float through the air, are inhaled, and then enter the bloodstream. These highly popular aromatic liquids are actually chemicals, including benzene, lactones and aldehydes, all of which have been linked to cancer, birth defects, central nervous system disorders, neurological disorders, and/or allergic reactions, including eye, skin and respiratory symptoms.

🐾 Our animals often spend their days stuck inside our homes, unable to get away from these airborne pollutants; if your goal is to remove damaging chemicals from your family’s living environment, the first place to start is by unplugging plug-ins. To learn more about cleaning up your home to improve your furry family’s health, check out our new book The Forever Dog. Available at: www.foreverdog.com

What are you doing to purify your drinking water?💧

A new veterinary study looking at carcinogens in dogs’ drinking water 🐾concluded pollutants in tap water increase the risk of certain cancers in dogs, and that filtering tap water could decrease the overall incidence of these cancers. Researchers found dogs with bladder cancer were more likely to live in areas with higher tap water concentrations of total trihalomethane, a reactive byproduct of disinfection chemicals, especially chlorination, used in municipal tap water.

So the big question is: what are you doing to remove chlorine and other contaminants from your household water?

Chemical-laden 🚱 tap water is just one of the quiet, common household pollutants millions of families are exposed on a daily basis, unless we do something to fix the situation. In our upcoming book, The Forever Dog, we cover all of the top household environmental risks you should be aware of, including the section titled “How Bad is Your Water?💧”. Chlorine is just one of the many contaminants that may be found in your water supply.

If you receive your water from a public water supply, we recommend you research the quality of your water by accessing your community’s Annual Quality Report. Check the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council) report “What’s On Tap?”, and ask your water utility (the company that bills you monthly) for a copy of its annual water quality report. This report will list the detected contaminants, the potential source(s) of those contaminants, and the levels at which those contaminants were present in the water supply. Using this information, you’ll be able to choose the correct filter for your family’s drinking water.

Choose the filter technology that best suits your circumstances and budget: whole-house carbon; individual carbon filters on water spigots and portable pitchers, refrigerator filters; reverse osmosis filters in the kitchen, there are many to choose from. Choose a filter system that addresses the contaminants in your area, as each type of filter has its strengths and limitations, and one type does not accomplish all goals.

Beware

This hazardous chewy toy is a by-product of the leather industry, not the food industry (which is why most are labelled as non-edible and/or dangerous if swallowed). The chemicals it takes to make this unsafe chew, from start to finish, is staggering!

So Publisher #2 who rejected our idea about a dog longevity book (rooted in the latest animal science from the top longevity experts around the world) said:

“To be clear, you want to write a how-to guide to get your dog to live longer using science directly from the researchers, and you want us to publish it? And your hope is that big box stores support your book idea?”

(insert a long, awkward pause)….

Rodney and I: “Yes.”

Publisher#2: “And for people not up to speed about fresh food diets, which you explain in great detail but nevertheless…a book about how to make WHATEVER you’re feeding, including the same foods the Big Box Stores sell, better?!”

Us: “Yes.”

Publisher#2: “…A book showing pet parents what products to look out for, with research studies showing the foods, cleaning products, flea & tick products and other household products those big box stores sell as part of the problem, but request they also sell your book anyway??”

Us: “Yes.”

Publisher#2 (who said NO to our book idea): “Good luck with that…it will never happen in your lifetime.”

Dear Publisher #2: Our book is available for pre-sale at Target. 👊🏼

This is our first step in changing the health paradigm for dogs: making this information accessible to everyone.

Our aim is to get this critical info into everyone’s hands that need it. We are sorry you can’t see the epidemic of sick dogs whose owners need this information, and the depth of commitment dog lovers will go to fix their family members; they’re the people who asked for this book, and they’re pre-ordering it at Target.

Onward (and NOT with Publisher #2), we have dogs to save! 🐶🙌🏼🐾❤️
