Please clean up after your pet

Posted: July 8, 2014 - 8:31am

I live in Soldotna on one of the busiest residential corners. I take great pride in my yard, and spend hours each week not only maintaining my yard but also the city’s right of way. It’s nice to see people out “walking the loop” each day and getting their pets their daily excersise. Thus my complaint.

If you have to energy to take your pets out to do their business, then you should have enough energy to pull a plastic baggie out of your pocket to pick up “the business.” I don’t have a dog out of choice, and where I live (no fenced yard). I don’t appreciate going out to maintain my yard and stepping in your inconsiderate mess.

Please be a considerate neighbor and pick up after your pets. I’m sure I am not the only person in town who would appreciate it.

Have a nice summer.

Teaching a dog to "go" on

Teaching a dog to "go" on command is one of the easiest "tricks,"

Pick your "word" & whenever your pet goes on their own, say the word & praise or reward.

They will put 2 + 2 together & soon you can say the word where & when YOU want.

60 second walks in the rain.
NO brown-dead spots in your (or your neighbor's lawn)

Just one of the joys of a trained dog...... (See your local K-Pen, Kennel Club or Petco for even more impressive training tips!)
