Flagstaff Sedona Dog Magazine
Leader of the Pack
Yes, this is Flagstaff-Sedona Dog. We just decided to showcase rescue bunnies in this edition. I think it’s appropriate. So many parents mistakenly get their kids pet bunnies around this time of year, and a few months later they are looking for someplace to send the bunny. Domesticated bunnies can make wonderful pets, but they require a responsible owner, not as a gift in a quick decision. Enjoy our Cover Story and all of the photos of those cute bunnies. Then you can decide if this is the forever pet for you. Thank you to Tranquility Trail Animal Sanctuary for all of the hard work they do on behalf of rescue bunnies.
In this edition, we are introducing you to “Chiropractic for Everybody” in our Business Spotlight. Dr. Annie Seefeldt is new to our community and ready to help our pets with chiropractic treatment. She is also donating her services to local rescues to help the pets they have taken in. Shelter animals can suffer from physical as well as emotional trauma, and a healthy pet has a better opportunity to be adopted.
In Doggie News from Around the World, we are proud to bring the story of a local young man, Alex Quintero of Flagstaff. Alex is a Boy Scout working on his Eagle Scout badge, the highest award of the Boy Scouts of America. He has chosen as his service project, a unique contribution to the Coconino Humane Association. Calling his project “Animals R Family”, Alex is working closely with the shelter to obtain items needed on a daily basis to serve and improve the lives of the animals living at the shelter. We wish Alex the best in achieving his goals and earning his Eagle Scout rank.
Be sure to read about pet-friendly Santa Fe, New Mexico in our Travels with Pets feature. If you are planning a vacation in the Southwest, Santa Fe has treasures to enjoy for both the human and pet traveler. It’s an easy drive from northern Arizona, with wonderful food, local art and historic places to visit.
As the weather improves, we want to enjoy the outdoors with our families and our pets. Northern Arizona has so many trails and locales to visit and explore in the spring. Our Training article this edition gives us all of the tools to safely go camping and hiking with our pets. Go through the checklist and make sure you have these items on-hand before you start your trip. You will have a much better experience if you are prepared for whatever Mother Nature sends your way.
Along with the good weather, lots of pet-related events are being scheduled in the months ahead. Check out all the fun community events on our Calendar and plan to attend. Most allow you to bring your well-behaved dogs with you to enjoy the fun. They all benefit the homeless pets in our communities. You may even find your new “best friend” to adopt. We hope to see you at many of these events. Look for the Flagstaff-Sedona Dog booth and stop by to say hello!
You had me at WOOF!
