Manor Lake Seeking Guardian Family Homes

Friday, July 25th, 2014

We are looking for guardian family homes here at Manor Lake. This is an awesome opportunity for you and your family to have an amazing Manor Lake Australian Labradoodle dog or puppy in your home.

What is a guardian family home exactly? A Guardian Family Home is a place where one of our Australian Labradoodle dogs or puppies chosen specially for Manor Lake’s breeding program lives as a wonderful family dog. Manor Lake retains all breeding rights for all males and females, and guardian family gets a pet for free. The dog or puppy will live with you and come to Manor Lake only when required testing needs to be done, when it is time to be bred or when she is ready to have her puppies – health testing and any reproductive costs are that of Manor Lakes’.

We select our guardian families very carefully – and our first qualification is to live within a 100 mile radius of Bellingham, WA. We do also have other requirements click here and please contact Manor Lake if you feel you or your family would be a good match!

10 Pet Travel Tips! (Revivalanimal.com)

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

1-IMG_1308

Going on vacation is always a fun treat for the whole family and it’s even better if you get to take your canine companion along with you. To make the trip a great experience for you and your pet here are a few travel tips:

1. CARRIER - it is important to bring a carrier that is big enough for your dog to sleep and turn around. They like a place to help make them feel secure.

2. BED- Make sure to bring a dog bed, rug, or blanket that they like to sleep on at home. Place it in a spot that is out of the way, but near you and show them where to nap. Sleep is important for all puppies and dogs.

3. SEAT COVER- this applies more to those who travel with their pet outside a carrier. Train them to stay on a rug covered back seat or use a seat cover. This will definitely help with clean up on a rainy day or a trip to the beach. For a longer trip, place a bed on top for comfort.

4. LEASH- it is always important to leash your dog before opening the car door and especially important that the leash cannot slip.

5. STRESS RELIEVER- If your dog is a nervous traveler, start a calming agent like Doc Roy’s® DOCILE DOG. Start this treatment two weeks before the trip. It is not a tranquilizer, but will take the edge off for any added stress.

6. FEED LIGHTLY- make sure to feed your pet lightly before you leave. You can sprinkle something like shredded cheese in their food to encourage them eating 1 hour prior to leaving. If your pet is prone to car sickness, feed ginger snaps two hours before leaving and repeat one hour into the trip.

7. FOOD/WATER BOWLS- this one goes without saying, but it is especially important to bring these along with a mat to go under the bowls to decrease the mess.

8. GREETING- On arrival, bring the dog on a leash to greet people. Keep the dog on the leash when setting up the dog bed and food/water dishes. Let them take a drink, go on a short walk so they empty their bladders before getting too excited! Once they have calmed down from the excitement, they can be taken off the leash.

9. SETTING UP THE CARRIER/BED- Place the pet carrier in your bedroom and open the door for access. The bed should be in a common area like a family room. For a cat, place the bed on the furniture you have previously ask permission to use and put the cat on it (cats like being up high).

10. WHEN LEAVING- Always place the pet in their carrier when leaving the house (if not taking with you). Never lock them in a room or a bath, stick with the carrier since it is something that is familiar to your pet. It helps to put a treat or toy in the carrier with them and will keep them busy for plenty of time!

Snuggle Puppy!

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

Why Manor Lake Likes The Snuggle Puppy

SnugglePuppies™, with a new and improved heartbeat, will capture your pet’s heart! All ages of animals love our adorable SnugglePuppie™ because they connect with the “real feel” heart beat and gentle warmth. Remember that children and seniors love to cuddle them too! Heart beat with batteries and two types of heat included.

We like Snuggle puppies at Manor Lake because they can make our Australian Labradoodle puppies more comfortable when they are transitioning to their new homes.  The young puppies really like the heart beat and warmth of the SnugglePuppy, it reminds them of their litter mates and mother and comforts them through this separation.

We carry the Snuggle Puppy in our Manor Lake Dog Boutique, check them out!
