Going to the vet can be scary for lots of dogs more often than not this is due to improper training from a young age. When you get young puppy you should hand feed them while touching and feeling different parts of their body. Keep the food in a closed hand so your puppy can smell the food each time you touch a body part your hand should open and you should reward your puppy. If Possible do this on top of a table and progress by using multiple family members or friends.When going to the vet ask permission that you practice this while the examination of your puppy takes place. This will create positive associations with getting handled by a veterinarian. Make sure you go for regular checkups with your puppy every six months to keep them in practice. Do you have an older dog that panics going it the vet?Don’t worry it’s not a lost cause. Practice the above at home and make regular trips to the veterinary car park do this several times until you see that your dog is happy to get out of the car. Once you have established this you should then progress to the waiting area.If your dog is making good progress both at home and around the veterinary surgery you should then go for a check up just to practice with your dog. For older dogs this takes time. Practice from a young age can prevent anxiety, fear, and aggression and can make your dog love going to the vet. You should follow these steps on a regular basis even if you don’t have a vet appointment or routine vaccination coming up. Don’t wait for a problem to occur before beginning training as its always much easier to prevent rather than having to intervene.If you would like to join get started in training with your puppy then why not join puppy class.

LSU Texas A&M DrillJohn Chavis was LSU’s defense coordinator from 2009-14. Now, he’s at Texas A&M. The 58-year-old coach, unsurprisingly, has brought one of the defensive drills he used with the Tigers to College Station, Texas. In the drill, called the “Gauntlet,” a player has to make his way through several opponents before knocking down a tackling dummy. An LSU fan has created a video that shows a pretty big difference in physicality between the Tigers and the Aggies. So Chavis tried to bring the Gauntlet drill with him to A&M… And it didn’t really have the same effect pic.twitter.com/ZjboBMzbN7— The LSU Logo (@LSU_Logo) August 20, 2015It doesn’t even look like you’re watching the same drill. Now, it’s important to consider that one clip is not an entire representation of a team’s defense, but Texas A&M probably does have a long way to go before reaching the status LSU’s defense did under Chavis.

zoom After the Pakistani shipbreaking market officially reopened following three high profile accidents, it was hit by another hurdle as the Environmental Agency in Gadani revoked all No Objection Certificates (NOCs) issued for recently beached vessels.The market was previously closed after it three accidents aboard an FSU and an LPG tanker occurred, claiming dozens of lives and causing injuries to a number of workers.The closure lasted while the government and environmental authorities conducted investigations. Arrests of the respective yard owners where the accidents took place, in addition to the president of the Pakistan Ship Breakers Association (PSBA), were also reported.According to GMS, a cash buyer of ships for recycling, the yards were only allowed to reopen subject to significant reform and safety upgrades, “yet this recent withdrawal of cutting permission is likely to significantly dampen local demand / levels and possibly hamper upcoming deliveries.”After the glut of Capesize bulker and container sales, the Pakistani market reported a slightly more muted week despite the sale of one large very large ore carrier (VLOC) at an above market rate.“Some of the speculative acquisitions seen last week seem to have encouraged competing cash buyers to take their own gambles at similar levels, in the hope that local offerings will inch their way towards numbers being asked from various cash buyers, thereby making their own deals increasingly workable,” GMS said.

NEW DELHI — Thousands of farmers are marching to India’s Parliament demanding higher prices for their produce and a government waiver on their farm loans to alleviate hardships.Waving red, yellow and green flags and banners representing farmers’ organizations, the protesters also demanded diesel and fertilizers at lower prices and blamed the Hindu nationalist government for hardships caused by years of declining earnings in the agriculture sector.Rain-dependent agriculture employs more than half of India’s 1.3 billion people, but shrinking earnings mean it now accounts for only 15 per cent of India’s economy.Failed harvests force poor farmers to borrow money at high interest rates to buy seeds, fertilizers and food for their cattle. They often mortgage their land and, as debts mount, some are driven to suicide.The Associated Press
