|I just thought I'd pass this little tip along that I learned while showing dogs years ago. There's a product that bank tellers and accounting firms use to count money called 'Tacky Fingers' or 'Sortkwik'. If you rub this one your senior doggie's pads while he's resting and let it dry for a few minutes, he will have a much better grip on hard surfaces. We used to use this so our dogs wouldn't slip in the show ring. It may sound kind of silly, but it sure works. Here's a link to the product at Office Depot: http://www.officedepot.ca/Moisteners/LEE-Sortkwik-Hygienic-Fingertip -Moistener-10050.asp
Oh, and if you have a white-coated dog who tends to have those ugly tear-stains, crush up a half a Tums to put in his food once a day. As the dog sheds the tear-stained hair, white hair will grow in and there will be no more tear stains if you keep it up. You will also be adding much-needed calcium to his diet.
I used both of these methods for my older Standard Poodles and my Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. I hope some of you can use the tips!
(Just my way of giving back to the wonderful people who have helped me so much on this site.)
