DD Pets: Getting your dog accustomed to the vet

first_imgGoing 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. Every Sunday at 11am – 12pm.

WHY THE KIDS LOVE TOUCH

first_imgIt was the year of expansion and of the Bulldogs in the ARL, The year a bunch of young schoolboy rockers from Newcastle shot to stardom, The year that Mel Gibson told us that “They could take our lives, but they’ll never take our freedom”, and the year of redemption for us long suffering Queenslanders as we finally broke a 102 year-old hoodoo and won cricket’s Sheffield shield for the first time ever. 1995 was also a land mark year for Touch with Australia dominating at the World Cup in Hawaii and the birth of the Inaugural State of Origin Touch Series which brought Touch out of the backyard and into our lounge rooms. 1995 was also the birth year of the First Primary Schools Sport Touch Exchange, the year the first Qld Primary School Girls Touch Team played in an Interstate Challenge. Qld took on Northern Territory in a series hosted by the Peninsula region in Queensland’s North. Missy Shaw, then a shy twelve year-old from the Gold Coast, was honoured to be selected in the Inaugural Qld Primary team, so much so that alongside her `treasured’ 90210 T-shirt from her favourite TV show that year, sits her # 4 Qld jersey she wore in her very first State Touch team. The program for this week’s Schools Sport Australia Combined Touch Tournament sports a photo of the very first Qld Primary Girls Team, and there, standing at the back, is the diminutive Missy Shaw. “How ordinary is my hair?” remarked Missy on first glance at the blast from the past. “I’ve been getting crap from people all week – it’s (she screws up her face) fluffy!” Bad hair days aside, Missy is in pretty good company in the Inaugural team – Sarah Hillier who is holding the ball in the photo, like Missy, actually played in every Qld and Australian side selected from Primary girls through to 15’s and Open School girls. The talented duo actually co-captained the Qld Open Schoolgirls in Year 12 after playing in the first Qld Primary team together. Sarah no longer plays, but her younger sister Ashleigh is tearing up the fields as I write, starring for Qld in the 15 Years Girls team at this tournament. Kate Mc Shae, another team mate in the Inaugural Qld team, made a name for herself as well, not in touch, but in soccer, playing for the Matilda’s at this year’s Olympics in Athens. Missy is at the Gold Coast Touch Association this week helping at the canteen at the Combined Tournament -the majority of patrons blissfully unaware that the friendly girl greeting them and serving up their food and drinks is one of the best young talents in our game. Missy, at 21, is a current Australian Open Women’s National Training Squad Member and is the eldest of three Touch playing Shaw sisters who have represented Qld at Primary Level in Touch in the last decade. Katie is 19 and is a current Junior World Cup Under 20 Mixed player, and Jess, 13, is a talented young player who has already represented the SQBD Sharks in the ATA U 18 NTL in 2004. Amazingly, in the last ten years, Qld’s 12 Years Girls have amassed an exceptional record in winning every National title in the division since it’s inception…. that’s an amazing stat in anyone’s language! The school system in both Qld and NSW has already produced a lineage of schoolgirl super stars that have gone on to represent their respective States and Australia at Open level over the years. When Representative Touch began in Secondary schools in Qld in 1985 committed teachers such as Peter Bell, Graham Herlihy, Anne Mc Carthy, Graham Lowry, Dave Kirby, Ken Jackson, Ken Murdoch and Ray Grieshaber realized the tremendous potential and possible links for schools with affiliated Touch. Dave Mayfield, Phil Evans, Mick Kelly and a host of other quality teacher’s were to come on board later. The growth and popularity of Touch in schools was quite dramatic in the mid to late eighties and has continued to grow with the popularity of tournaments such as the Qld Secondary All Schools Championships, and the QSST State Championships. The progression of State and National junior representatives into our mainstream elite level representative teams has been achieved almost with assembly line precision. The winning Qld Women’s Open team at the 1993 ATA National Championships contained no less than 11 Qld Open school girl graduates, and many of these players went on to form the nucleus of the National Women’s Squad for the next decade. Peter Bell has been instrumental in this process and it is obvious how successful the link between the schools and affiliated elite participation has become. This progression from Secondary school Qld representatives to Open Women’s level has become almost a rite of passage for budding player’s who aspire to make it in the game, and very rarely has the talent net at school level allowed gifted player’s to float by unheralded. Now we are seeing the first group of Primary school super stars emerging as they make their way through the Primary Rep. Scene, into Under 15’s, then Open School Girls, Under 18’s & Under 20’s, then finally to Women’s Open. This has been the path of Missy Shaw who is one of the first of a young crop of Queenslanders who will progress through this system. North Qld sensation Kelly Mc Gennity is another and a host of young stars including Emily Hopkin, Roxy Winder, Kate Shaw, and Alyce Hulbert have represented Qld at Primary level, 15 Years, and Open School girl level and made Junior National squads. Missy says that her first experience under two of the pioneers of Primary Touch, current National Women’s Coach, Kerry Norman, and fellow long standing junior coach Kathy O’Brien, helped shape her for future experiences in the sport. “The coaches made playing Touch awesome, they made learning the game easy, and importantly in that first Qld team we all got on great – which is the thing I enjoy most about the game still – playing with your friends.” Incredibly, from that first exchange with Northern Territory almost ten years ago, Missy befriended a young girl from Darwin, Tamara Appo, who all these years later is a close friend and team mate in club sides Tigers (Gold Coast) Uni-Rebels (Brisbane), the Sharks 2004 NTL Open Women’s Champion team and the Qld Women’s Open State of Origin Team. Inaugural Coach of the Qld Primary Girls Kerry Norman believes the secret to Qld’s winning streak has been the dedication and willingness of Primary Teachers all over the State to contribute to the development of the game at grass root level. “Our teacher’s have been excellent, introducing kids to the game and then allowing us to develop a lot of them to a higher standard.” When pressed on the changes the Girl’s game has gone through at Primary level in the last ten years Kerry offered the following comment. “The girls are much more aware of defence and different strategies now. Ball skills are much better and the fact that the Primary kids get to play in the Combined tournament and see the 15’s means they have role models immediately above them and they can aspire to the standard and learn.” “Also there are plenty of good coaches around offering plenty of development…. the current Qld Girl’s Coach is a good example – Evan Willis is from the country, but he has spent a lot of time building up his knowledge to assist player’s in his region and develop his own coaching and it’s great recognition for his dedication, and hopefully an inspiration to coaches in similar positions who aspire to coach at this level. So, now to the man in the hot seat, Evan Willis, the guy who has the pressure of delivering Qld’s tenth title in a row…how’s he feeling and how’s the team travelling under the weight of expectation? “Mate, to be honest, the kids are going better than me! Of course it’s in the back of your mind, but we just keep working on the job at hand – we focus and concentrate on what we have to do…keep it simple and go from there, if we follow through I know we can do it, we’ve prepared well enough…it’s sort of a duty, but also an honour to try and keep the Qld domination going” “To be a Country Coach and score a job like this is great, but a lot of people like Kathy O’Brien, Peter Bell and Bruce Hurford have really encouraged and helped me along the way…Belly actually taught me at school.” That is perhaps Peter Bell’s and the dedicated band of teacher’s in Qld Primary and Secondary school’s greatest gift, imparting the love of learning and the art of passing knowledge on. You get the feeling with these sorts of quality people involved in Qld School Touch the State will continue to hover close to the top of the Touch tree and that there may well be a winning record to protect for some time to come…. after 102 years waiting for the Sheffield Shield we’re entitled to feel good about racking up a few wins over the rest of Australia. By the way, Missy Shaw’s Mastercard moment would go something like this: A vintage ’95 Beverley Hills 90210 shirt – costly …the Qld jersey of the same year – expensive… the fluffy hair – priceless!

Video: LSU Fan Creates Video That Shows Huge Difference Between LSU, Texas A&M’s Defenses

first_imgLSU players doing a blocking drill at practice.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. [SDS]last_img read more

Authority Revokes Gadanis Ship Cutting Permissions

first_imgzoom 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.last_img read more

Indian farmers march seeking better prices for produce

first_imgNEW 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 Presslast_img read more

Irani files nomination targets Rahul over IT raids

first_imgAmethi: Union minister Smriti Irani Thursday filed nomination papers from Amethi, pitting herself against Congress president Rahul Gandhi who has won thrice from the Lok Sabha constituency regarded as Gandhi family pocket borough. Irani filed the nomination after a road show, which followed a similar route taken by the one organised by the Congress when Rahul Gandhi submitted his own papers here on Wednesday. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath accompanied her in a show of strength in the constituency, which has been nursed by the Union textiles minister even after she was defeated by Gandhi last time. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details She lost the 2014 election by over a lakh votes, but the shrunken margin of victory for Gandhi boosted the Bharatiya Janata Party’s hopes. The Congress president is also contesting from a second constituency, Wayanad in Kerala, this time, prompting the BJP to claim that he is “scared” to take on Irani. Irani, who has been lashing out at Gandhi for missing from Amethi and for its lack of development, continued to attack him on Thursday, questioning his silence over the Income Tax raids against aides of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday The road show began with prayers at the Gauriganj’s Budhanmaai temple, where her husband Zubin Irani accompanied her. Enthusiastic party workers took part in the road show ahead of the nomination, beating drums and showering rose petals. Many women wore saffron saris and men had angochhas in the same colour flung over their shoulders. They wore ‘Main bhi chowkidar’ (I am also a watchman) caps, in support of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Irani submitted four sets of nomination papers to district election officer R M Mishra. taking with reporters, Irani targeted her rival over the recent I-T raids. The Income-Tax Department has claimed it has detected a racket in collection of unaccounted cash, running into crores. “Rahul Gandhi is still silent over the fact that details of about Rs 280 crore have emerged from the residence of an aide of Kamal Nath, she charged. Rahul’s silence exposes his reality.” Irani said the people are looking for a vision in these elections for the development of the country, asserting that Modi will again emerge as prime minister.last_img read more
