Has your dog been in kennels recently?
It's great to have a break but now that you are back home you need to keep an eye out for symptoms of Kennel Cough in your dog. Kennel Cough is extremely contagious and easily jump from dog to dog when they are in places where dogs are gathered and especially if stress is involved.
Look out for coughing that almost looks like your dog is gagging or has something caught in his or her throat. If you think your dog may have Kennel Cough take him or her to a vet. They can get very ill and miserable with kennel cough and will be very infectious.
Do not bring your dog to training if you have any concerns about Kennel Cough.
