Western Washington has a population explosion of wildlife babies born every spring usually beginning in April and lasting until the end of June.
We all love to watch the new baby birds leaving their nests for the first time; baby bunnies, raccoons, squirrels, or opossums exploring away from their mothers and especially the beautiful fawns we see sometimes standing or lying on the sides of the road.
Unlike humans, wildlife mothers leave their nests for several hours at a time. There are usually two reasons for this. The first is to search for food and the second is to teach their babies survival instincts.

Walking along Puget Sound beaches or sitting in your boat, you may see a curious earless harbor seal face rise from the water to check you out. Harbor seals are the most abundant marine mammal along Puget Sound. Although curious, they are shy animals and prefer quiet, unpopulated areas.
Seals are members of the Order Pinnipedia ( “pinniped” comes from the latin word “pinna” meaning winged and “ped” meaning foot) which is divided into two Families—Otariid or eared seals (Fur Seals, California Sea Lions, Elephant seals etc) and Phocid or earless seals (Harbor Seals).

You see it all the time. Those commercials trying to sell you training tools to help you have that picture perfect well mannered pet. It isn’t always possible in our real world but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a well behaved pet that you enjoy having to walk and visit your friends with. How do you know what works and what doesn’t?
What are the pros and cons, what is available and what are the benefits of a harness?
Here at All Creatures Animal hospital we would like to help you navigate the world of training harness aids.
