Are Spot-on products harmful to my dog? The conventional over-the-counter drops or sprays available contain pesticides. It is a known fact that pesticides cause cancer. Therefore, in my opinion, using spot-on products is like burning your house down to get rid of ants. When you squeeze a tube of flea and tick preventive between your dog’s shoulder blades, you are unwittingly depositing pesticides in your dog’s blood stream. As far back as 1989, a study by the Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine Department of Pathobiology, published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, found that dogs who received one to two topical pesticide applications per year experienced a 60% increased risk of bladder cancer. Dogs that were given more than two applications per year were 3.5 times more likely to develop bladder cancer. The risk was increased even more in overweight or obese dogs (Glickman et al., 1989; Glickman et al., 2004; Raghaven et al., 2004). For testimonials from people whose pets were killed by these products, see . It’s better to use a safe product such Dr. Ben’s Paws and Claws cedar oil spray to keep the bugs off. We sell it at our Save A Dog shop at our shelter for $10 or you can buy it at . We also recommend the Raw Baltic Amber collars, which repel all bugs. You can also purchase the collars on Amazon.

Both the Northborough and Chicopee courses are taught by Tibby Chase, longtime dog trainer and AKC obedience judge (to read more about Tibby, I refer you to my January 22, 2015 post). Tibby’s course will run for three, two-hour sessions, with time spent at a nearby nursing home to hone skills and techniques taught in class. Dawn Kimball teaches our Northampton course in two, two-hour sessions at the training facility. Dawn’s classes receive rave reviews from participants who say they feel well-prepared, not only for the evaluation, but for making their visits once certified. Dawn has been a Bright Spot volunteer since 2006, and a Bright Spot evaluator since 2010.
