I am getting ready to start a chapter on dogs. Does anyone have any fun assignments/labs dealing with dogs.
Posted last spring or maybe early summer was a game called Stu?s Double Jeopardy. The name was changed to http://jeopardygame.files.wordpress.com/2009/01/quizboxes2.jpg Stu?s Quiz Boxes but it is still available for free. It has to be very easy to use since I figured it out. I played around with the first version using canine breeds as the subject but I feel you could use just about any subject matter being taught in your canine science curriculum.
I will try to figure out what has to be done to attach all the files to make the breed game work for you and will post later. Also, having taught a course in canine science for nine years I accumulated several files with canine information. I will dig through some of these to see what I can find for you and try to send it to you someway. In the mean time go to http://quizboxes.com/ and take a look at the game.
One additional site to check out is http://pethealthlibrary.purinacare.com/ It has handouts and videos that you might be able to use.
Thank you so much for your help. This class is all new to me so anything you have is appreciated.
You are welcome...and the info that Mary posted is great. I either was dreaming or missed your contact info? Have several files to send if you can tell me where? Send me a private email if you wish to email@example.com

You wouldn't happen to have the Brochure or Handout that goes with the "Dog Food Comparison" Chart would you? I was looking at it and it is a neat project.
Did you ever get the brochures? I think this will be great lesson to do, but am wondering where to get the info from.
For some reason the link to all of these is not working. I've tried it on two different computers, but it could just be me. I would love to borrow these if you wouldn't mind, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
You can also get some of these great materials under the documents tab. The link worked for me, so it is still functioning properly and I am not sure why it is not working for you.
We begin our class with a unit on dog restraint and physical exams. This has been really popular because students can try these techniques at home, and we also have a "bring your pet day" where students and staff can bring their pets to have them undergo a physical exam by students for temperature, hydration, circulation, respiratory and circulatory rates, and responsiveness. This helped to engage the rest of the school and built a lot of support for the program from both staff as well as parents (I'm actually writing this during a break from parent-teacher conferences, and parents have been commenting all day on how much they like this activity). Later, we do mock emergency responses with live pets to demonstate bandaging, etc.
