…It is amazing how many vets do not tell people to hot pack incisions after their dogs have surgery. In response to the many times that I have taught people in emails how to do this, and in desperation for having to repeat this over and over to so many caring owners, here is how it is done:
HOW TO HOTPACK:
Drain a bowl of hot water and add one or two drops of liquid detergent, like Dawn or Ivory. (Water should be as hot as you can stand to put your hand in and hold it there comfortably.) Take a washcloth or small towel and fold it so that it is about the size of your hand. Dip it into the hot soapy water and wring it out. Hold it on the incision until it cools. Dip it into the hot solution again and continue this for about ten or 15 minutes. As the bowl of water cools, add more hot water to maintain the temperature. This will help the incision drain and heal much faster. It will also prevent infection in the surgical site.
Try to do this twice a day, a.m. and p.m. and if you can spare the time, also at midday.

…from Chocolate’s family…..”She’s REALLY come out of her shell. I’ve taken her out to the farm and taught her to maintain a ten yard radius of me which us hilarious when she sees a squirrel or bird. She stops at ten yards like there’s a brick wall and stares intently until i release her. Shes fast as the wind.”
I asked how they trained her to do this and they responded: “Id call her back at ten yards every time and give her a treat. Eventually she stopped going further than ten yards. I had already well established stay and release so she thinks that’s her treat now when i release her from anything. I give her a real treat when shes called back.

…are starting out with a new puppy or dog: Super Puppy Book
Not all puppy advice applies equally to all puppies. Xolos are individuals and the owner must use their judgement as to what seems good for their dog, what works the best for it. Read lots of material about what you are doing and exercise your best judgement.
