Summer Safety Tips for Pet Owners

Many of us in Martins Chase are proud pet owners and as summertime quickly approaches we need to be mindful of not only our immediate family needs but also the needs of our furry companion(s). Here are some safety concerns for responsible pet owners:

for an allergic reaction. If a reaction occurs or there have been multiple wasp, bee or mosquito bites, take the animal to the vet.

Cool ocean water is tempting to your dog. Do not allow him to drink too much seawater. The salt in the water will make him sick.

Talk with your veterinarian about flea and tick prevention medications.

Heartworm is a common problem for dogs. Take your dog to a vet for a heartworm check every spring and follow your vet's advice for heartworm precautions.

Salt and other minerals found in the ocean can damage your dog's coat. So, when you are ready to leave for the day, rinse him off with fresh water.

Not all beaches permit dogs. Check local ordinances before you begin your excursion to the beach.

General Summer Safety Concerns

• •

Hot weather can make anyone feel uncomfortable, and your pet is no exception. Never leave your dog/cat unattended in direct sunlight or in a closed vehicle. When it's only 80 degrees outside, the inside of a car can heat up to more than 120 degrees in just minutes. Leaving the windows partially rolled down will not help. Your pet is susceptible to heat stroke and possible death in these conditions. Heatstroke can occur and lead to brain damage or death. Signs of heatstroke are panting, drooling, rapid pulse and fever. Immediately immerse the dog/cat in cool water and seek emergency veterinary assistance. Always make sure your pet has access to fresh water. All pets should have proper identification at all times.

Keep your pet on a leash or in an enclosed space when he/she is outdoors to prevent accidents and injuries.

Try to avoid strenuous exercise with your pet on extremely hot days and refrain from physical activity when the sun's heat is most intense.

Have your pet’s vaccinations updated if necessary. Diseases such as rabies, distemper and parvo are ever-present dangers and necessary precautions should be taken. Beware of insect bites. If your pet is bitten or stung, remove the stinger and watch the site

Most lawn and garden products may be hazardous. Make sure that plants and fertilizers within the pets reach are not toxic. The outdoors exposes pets to the elements. Pets may need extra brushing and bathing to stay clean and healthy.

Does Your Doggy Paddle? The majority of dogs can swim and they love it. But dogs entering the water for the first time should be tested. Here are some important tips for teaching your dog how to swim:

Never throw your dog into the water.

Beach Tips

Taking your dog to the beach can be a great way to spend a beautiful summer day. However, as a responsible dog owner there are certain precautions you should take:

Start in shallow water, and call your dog's name. You can also try to coax him in with a treat or toy – but always keep your dog within reach.

Another way to introduce your dog to the water is with a dog that already swims and is friendly with your dog. Let your dog follow his friend.

If your dog begins to doggypaddle with his front legs only, lift his hind legs and help him float. He should quickly catch on and will then keep his back end up.

Swimming is a great form of exercise, but don't let your dog overdo it. He will be using new muscles and may tire quickly.

Be careful of strong tides that are hazardous for even the best swimmers.

Never leave your dog unattended! You should always be in a position to help him get out of the water.

Provide plenty of fresh water and shade for your dog.

Dogs can get sunburn, especially short-haired dogs and ones with pink skin and white hair. Limit your dog's exposure when the sun is unusually strong, and apply sunblock to his ears and nose 30 minutes before going outside.

Check with a lifeguard for daily water conditions – dogs are easy targets for jellyfish and sea lice.

If your dog is out of shape, don't encourage him to run on the sand. Running on a beach is strenuous exercise, and a dog that is out of shape can easily pull a tendon or ligament.

Gardening Corner Planting Zone and Calendar of seeding/planting/harvest

Zone 6b

•Slightly warmer temperatures are associated with regions that fall in USDA zone 6b, which is east of the Blue Ridge Mountains and has average annual minimum temperatures of -5 to 0 degrees Fahrenheit. This includes many Northern Virginia towns such as Hillsboro, Leesburg, Great Falls, Reston, Centerville, Fairfax, Chantilly and Front Royal. The zone also includes southwestern Virginia towns such as Dryden, Gate City, Abingdon and Wytheville.

From the Finance Committee

The Finance Committee that provides input to the Board of Directors has a new member,which brings the total number of homeowner members to five. At the past Board of Directors meeting, the Board directed the Management company to have the reserve funds turned over to a Financial manager.  This is based on the adoption of the Investment resolution proposed by the Finance Committee for reserve funds.  These funds will now be put into staggered FDIC insured funds and will help improve the return on investment over the current Certificate of Deposits.   Please look for our minutes on the Martin’s Chase website.

From the Facilities Committee

Salt Water System The new Salt water system has been installed and is ready to go. Monitoring and adjusting the salt levels will be done by Management and Supervisory teams.  American Pools currently manage over a dozen salt water pools.  They are very popular in the South and West coast.  As far as wear and tear goes on the system it’s actually easier on our equipment, due to no build up like chlorine.  To understand how “salty” it is, the salt levels of the ocean are around 35,000 ppm, our pool will be 1/10 of that; around 3 ppm Lifeguards We explained how important communication is for us.  We absolutely stand behind the authority of the Guards and want them to be proactive.  We will have a local Lifeguard this year named Jamie, as well as, another Guard.  Antonio is their supervisor who will be making frequent visits. Vladimir is our second supervisor.  American Pools have an extensive training program for their guards and has an incentive program to keep their guards performance exceptional.  One guard will always be in the chair, the other on the pool deck. Adult Swim The last 15 minutes of each hour will be Adult swim for ADULTS ONLY.  The last hour the pool is open (7pm to 8pm) there will be NO adult swim. All must sign in as you enter the restroom vestibule. Pool Access / Sign-in Sheet As in years past, Martin’s Chase key cards will gain access to the restrooms thru to the pool area.  There will be a sign-in sheet on the lifeguard table.

Notes from the Covenant’s Committee News and Tips from The Covenant Committee Members (Peter McGrath, Ramzi Nassib, Ryan Rogers, Josh Nodell, Brett Klees) The Covenant Committee would like to thank all homeowners who continue to invest in their property, this includes the upkeep of their landscaping and yard maintenance activities. It’s important to pay special attention to your lawn care this spring as we move into the summer season. For any homeowners who are not experienced in landscaping or maintaining their yard please reach out and ask for help. Don't put it off or let it deteriorate as written violations will be issued. We are available to provide you with any maintenance tips and referrals to service contractors that work within our community. We meet the last Thursday of the month at 7pm at the clubhouse so stop by if you need to discuss an application for any landscaping or modifications to your home. Remember it’s your responsibility to do your part to keep your property and our community beautiful.  The following is a recent article with tips that can guide you to a healthy and beautiful lawn: Spring Lawn Care Tip #1: Raking Raking will be your first task of spring lawn care. Sorry, but raking is for more than just removing leaves: it's for controlling thatch, too. A thatch build-up of more than 1/2 inch is considered excessive. Thatch is the reason why I recommend that, when you rake leaves in the fall, you make the effort to rake deeply. Don't just skim the surface, so as to remove the leaves. A deep raking will remove thatch, too, allowing you to kill two birds with one stone. Even if you followed this advice in fall, I still recommend a spring raking: it will remove grass blades that died over the winter -- dead blades that are just waiting to become thatch! But there's often another good reason for a spring raking. As you survey your lawn in spring, see if there are any matted patches, in which the grass blades are all stuck together. This can be caused by a disease known as "snow mold." New grass may have difficulty penetrating these matted patches. But a light raking will be sufficient to solve this problem. Spring Lawn Care Tip #2: Check for Compaction If your lawn is subjected to high levels of traffic year after year, it may eventually start to show signs of decline. In such cases, your lawn is probably suffering from compacted soil. For instance, the presence of moss plants signals compaction (among other things). Lawn aeration is the remedy for compaction. The good news is that lawn aerators can be rented at your local rental center. The bad news is that the experts recommend postponing lawn aeration until fall. But if, during your "spring lawn checkup," you become aware of compaction, at least you can plan on setting aside some time in the fall to take care of it. Spring Lawn Care Tip #3: Liming Besides compaction, the presence of moss plants also signals acidity. But grass likes a neutral pH. You can solve this problem by liming your soil. But don't expect a quick fix: the effects of liming are slow to take place. But first send a soil sample to your local county extension to determine the extent of your soil's acidity. The county extension will also be able to

advise you on how much lime per square foot you'll need. Apply the lime using a fertilizer spreader. But if your lawn has been doing fine and shows no signs of suffering from acidity, don't apply lime. Liming is only a corrective measure, not a preventive measure. A soil that is too alkaline will also cause your lawn problems, so too much lime is as bad as not enough. Spring Lawn Care Tip #4: Overseeding Is your lawn riddled with bare patches due to dog spots, heavy traffic or neglect? If so, you may need to apply grass seed to fill in those bare patches. This solution is known as "overseeding lawns." Apply a slow-release nitrogen fertilizer when you overseed. Five weeks after the grass germinates, apply a quick-release nitrogen fertilizer. However, spring isn't the very best time for overseeding lawns. Fall is the preferred time, when the new grass won't have to compete with crabgrass, which is killed off by autumn frosts. So postpone overseeding until fall, unless your situation is dire. Spring Lawn Care Tip #5: Fertilizing Lawns can be fertilized organically by using compost and mulching mowers. But for those who prefer chemical fertilizers, Scotts provides a schedule for fertilizing lawns. Many experts, however, recommend a lighter feeding in spring and a heavier one in late fall for the types of lawn grasses known as "cool-season grasses." Too much fertilizer in spring can lead to disease and weed problems. And if you have, indeed, already fertilized in late fall, your lawn is still "digesting" that fertilizer in spring. For those who prefer weed-free lawns, spring grass care is as much about weed prevention as it is about fostering healthy lawn growth. Novices to spring grass care are often surprised to learn that not all lawn weeds are battled in the same manner. Depending upon whether a weed is an annual or a perennial, you will use a preemergent herbicide or a postemergent herbicide against it. Spring Grass Care Tip #6: Applying Preemergent Herbicides If you know that you have a problem with the annual weed, crabgrass, then fertilization in spring should go hand in hand with the application of preemergent herbicides. As their name suggests, preemergent herbicides address weed control not "after the fact," but before their seedlings can even emerge. Preemergent herbicides accomplish this by

forming something of a "shield" that inhibits seed germination. Crabgrass begins its assault on lawns in spring, when its seeds germinate. In fact, my suggestion that overseeding be carried out in autumn, rather than spring, is based in part on the threat posed by a spring crabgrass invasion. "So why not just begin by killing the crabgrass first with a preemergent herbicide?" perhaps you ask. Well, the trouble is that most preemergent herbicides work against not only weed seeds, but grass seeds, as well! You can appreciate the dilemma here. Overseeding is incompatible with the application of most preemergent herbicides. Yet, faced with competition from crabgrass in spring, you may find it difficult to establish your new grass. So while it's still possible to overseed in spring, it's simply easier to do so in fall. There will be no competition from crabgrass then, because the fall frosts kill off crabgrass. If you must overseed in the spring, look for a product called, "Tupersan." Unlike other preemergent herbicides, Tupersan will not damage germinating lawn grass seed. But if you're committed to staying away from chemicals altogether in your spring grass care, postpone overseeding till fall. Spring Grass Care Tip #7: Applying Postemergent Herbicides -- Or Pulling Weeds Keep an eye out for the emergence of the perennial weed, dandelion during the spring season, unless you find the presence of their cheerful yellow flowers in your lawn desirable. At the very least, you'll want to snap off their flower stems before they produce seed. If you're more ambitious, you can dig them out by the roots. Spraying dandelion weeds with postemergent herbicides is more effective in fall than in spring. If you do choose to spray, select an herbicide for broadleaf weeds. Tip #8: Tuning Up Existing Lawn Mowers Mowing the lawn all summer can be tiring enough, right? Why make it more difficult on yourself by putting up with a lawn mower that doesn't start up immediately? When a lawn mower is stubborn about starting up, that can be a sign that it needs a tuneup. Although it’s often possible to get by without one, it is recommended that you have a lawn mower tuneup each year.
