Lots going on in today's episode of The Dog Show with Julie Forbes!
First a recap of the Seattle Kennel Club Dog Show which was last weekend. A miniature pig performed in a dog obedience demo, and everyone was a-buzz about Temple Grandin. (If you missed Temple Grandin on The Dog Show with Julie Forbes, just go to our website "Pawdcasts" page and you can listen from your computer. Or download for free from iTunes - it was episode #314! Next I talk with Katrina Boldry of Bold Lead Designs - the BEST dog leashes and service dog equipement you can find! www.boldleaddesigns.com and we finish the show talking with Pawzii - a software platform for animal shelters and local municipalities to manage their pet licensing programs online. Founded right here in dog-crazy Seattle! Today's show is jam-packed. Enjoy!
Experts in the service dog industry, Jeanne Hampl and Darcie Boltz share their perspective on a family highlighted with Matt Lauer who have a service dog for their small child. Can we expect a young child to know how to properly handle a dog by herself? During the interview the dog showed signs of stress that the general public wouldn't recognize, but had the dog industry ignite - like panting and yawning. This interview brings up a larger topic of service dog welfare that gets lost in the "feel-good" stories, like this, that get ignorantly run in the media all the time. My question is: WHAT ABOUT THE DOG?
There's more to the Seattle Kennel Club Dog Show than pretty dogs trotting around the rings. In this episode of The Dog Show with Julie Forbes, dog training and behavior expert Julie Forbes talks with show chair Jane Anderson about all the different aspects of the Seattle Kennel Club Dog Show which is coming up on March 7 & 8. www.seattlekennelclub.org
From agility trials, to police dog demos, herding and nosework demos, and of course "K9 Freestyle" (dancing with your dog), there's plenty to entertain the whole family. Learn about breeding and other fun facts about dogs in today's informative episode.

So how do some people do it? I am not sure actually. I do know that REAL fitness models have to eat strict all the time and when they have shoots they go SUPER strict. Even they go up and down but on a high level. They have to workout hours a day but it’s their job. And they make $ from it. Is it worth it for me to continue working out that many hours a day to maintain this look? Maybe if it were my job, I’d do it.If I were just a normal person, I don’t think I would. It really is a lot of work and I honestly feel like you need to get paid to put yourself through this!
Also, bikini and fitness competitors all have a competition weight and an off season weight. Everyone has one. Curtis says we need to find mine too. It’s just not natural or safe to stay so low in body fat and weight all year round. He said that when he was competing he’d go up 20-30lbs in the off season and then just shed back down when it was time to hit the stage
Pre-workout supplementation is a rather new concept. It was not long ago that pre-workout supplementation was just starting to gain popularity. Luckily, in recent years much research has been done on the subject and many discoveries have been made that can benefit hard training lifters.The benefits of taking pre-workout supplements are numerous and can propel your workouts to new levels.
Pre-workout supplementation is designed to:
Decrease muscle breakdown during training
Increase protein synthesis
Improve energy and focus
Improve nutrient delivery and assimilation
Increase metabolic rate (fat burning)
Create an optimal hormonal environment
The attempt to spot-reduce body fat. It should be dead and buried, but it lives on. It’s a pursuit that just doesn’t go away. Consumer ignorance, keen marketing, and blind faith keep it alive, but past research shows it’s impossible.
It’s time to add one more nail to the coffin.
For those of you who are not familiar, spot reduction means the attempt to remove subcutaneous body fat stores from specific areas of the body by performing exercises that target those areas. In example, a person who has an inordinate amount of fat stored on their sides above the hips ("love handles") may use a side-bend or an abdominal side-to-side twisting exercise in the attempt to torch those fat cells. By now we should know the reality of this endeavor. Performing those exercises may strengthen the muscular responsible for those movements, but they have negligible impact on reducing the amount of fat stored there, all other factors being equal.
Priority #1: Whey Protein Powder
Why it made the list: Whey tops the list of mass-gain supplements because it's the most crucial for pushing protein synthesis. Whey is a milk protein that has a high level of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs, No. 4 on our list). Bottom line: Whey takes the crown because it digests fast and gets to your muscles rapidly to start building muscle. Whey also contains peptides (small proteins) that increase blood flow to the muscles. This is why we always recommend consuming whey protein immediately after training.
How to maximize its effects: Take 20 grams of whey protein powder in the 30 minutes before working out, and take 40 grams within 60 minutes after training. Also consider taking 20-40 grams of whey immediately upon waking every morning to kick-start muscle growth. Your best bet is to choose a whey powder that contains whey protein hydrolysates (whey protein broken down into smaller fragments for faster digestion) or whey protein isolate.
Clenbuterol Short-term Side-effects
The short-term side-effects of clenbuterol in humans have largely been determined through accidental overdoses from eating clenbuterol-tainted meat. Short-term side-effects include the following:
Hypertension (increased blood pressure)
Increased heart rate
Tremors (shakiness especially marked in hands)
Most of the above side-effects diminish when clenbuterol has been expelled from the body. However, the long-term effects of clenbuterol in humans are less well understood.
There are no human drug safety tests and information is obtained from incidents such as those in Spain in 1994, when 140 people were reportedly hospitalized and in China in September 2006 in which 330 people were poisoned due to eating meat that had been contaminated with clenbuterol. Information is also gained from isolated case studies of those using clenbuterol for its weight loss effects.
