      This morning, while watching "The Today Show", they had a report on jerky dog treats or treats that are made from China. So far, they have had several deaths do to jerky treats. I wanted to make sure that all you doggie lovers got the news. Please, when buying treats for your dog... make sure that they are not made in China and stay away from these jerky treats.
Here is link to The Today show story. Please watch by clicking the highlighted link  The Today Show News Story .

No Candy For The Pooch...

This is Bowser the Boxer
With Halloween just around the corner, I wanted to take some time to discuss the dangers of Halloween candy if ingested by our 4 legged babies.
We all know that chocolate is highly dangerous for dogs but did you know that the sugar, fat, artificial colors and flavors found in Halloween candy (when ingested by dogs) can lead to gastrointestinal illness and can be dangerous as well. While searching the internet, I found a Chocolate Chart published by the National Geographic that would possibly provide help to dog owners if your pooch should accidentally ingest chocolate. 
If you suspect or if you know your pooch has ingested chocolate or and candy, please contact your veterinarian right away or call the ASPCA Animal Poison Control number at (888) 426-4435.
Best way to avoid any accidents is to store your candy in out of reach places, as well as in tight lidded containers. Better to be safe than sorry.

The name of the book truly fits...

When asked  " What is the most informative Boxer book you can recommend". I have to say that  I happen to love "Boxers For Dummies". Although it was published in "2000", it seems to be very informative and you can find it fairly cheap on Amazon.

With that said... there is a new book out called "The Boxer Scholar and Clown". It was published this year "2013". 

I personally have not yet read this book that everyone seems to be raving about but would love feed back on what your thoughts were if you have read it..

Also, If you have a favorite book about Boxers or Pugs, we would love to hear about it....

Kloud 9's outlook on Dogs and Supplements

Our Dogs experience many of the same diseases and ailments that us humans experience, especially as they age. Vitamins like Vitamin C and Vitamin A are considered essential for helping to support a healthy immune system in a person as well as dogs. Vitamins impact the growth and development of dogs in much the same way that they do in people. A healthy diet, including a good and nutritious pet food, will generally supply the vitamins necessary for a dog  as they grow but  just like people, pets might require additional vitamins or supplements as they age or during pregnancy or periods of illness.
Bottom line: supplements for dogs can help maintain good health throughout each stage of life. 
We here at Kloud 9 Boxers use a quality holistic dog food called Lifes Abundance as well as a fantastic supplement called NuVet Supplements. We have seen remarkable results with this supplement in the lives of our own dogs as well as others.
Hope this post has shined some light on the benefits of Dog Supplements
