    The Puppies Go To The Beach

    December 3, 2019


    (light cheerful music) – [Narrator] The service dogs in training from Doggy Do Good have a big day ahead of them. It’s beach day! The sun, the surf, and boundless distractions that could cause any of these dogs to flunk out of Service Dog School. This is Puppy Prep. ^(light cheerful music) None of the pups are more excited to smell that ocean air ^than eight-month-old Golden Retriever, Luke. He’s been hanging out by the beach since he was only a couple months old. ^His half-sister, Remmy, is also excited, maybe too excited. It’s all right for her to take a second and adjust to the new sights and smells, but when it comes time for work, Remmy’s going to need to focus. For these puppies, the first order of business at any new location is to sample the local grass. While they’re not supposed to chew on the foliage, it’s easy for the pups to sneak a bite when the trainers have their backs turned. And the trainers turn their back frequently. Having this many puppies around draws attention, and people are excited to learn about the service dogs. But Nelly and Remmy are taking this chance to mess around. (dogs barking) The dogs aren’t supposed to go on the sand after 10:00, and while special exception can be made for service animals, there’s no shortage of other activities by the ocean, like the playground. The playground offers a multitude of different surfaces, sounds, and experiences. All of this builds confidence, getting the puppies ready for anything. ^First one up, six-month-old Chocolate Lab, Benelli. Climbing on rocks and walking on sand may appear simple, but it’s actually building the puppy’s comfort on a variety of surfaces. Wherever Benelli goes, she needs to be focused not on where she’s standing but on what her owner may need. – Good girl. – [Narrator] After breezing through the different surfaces, it’s time for something that will really disorient her. – Good girl. – [Narrator] The slide. While Benelli’s future owners may never actually take her down a slide, it’s important she has confidence to handle all kinds of new experiences. At first, she’s nervous, but with some coaxing and the promise of treat… – Good girl! – [Narrator] …even a puppy like Benelli can find her courage. Now back on firm land, the trainer is sure to praise Benelli up, building a connection in the puppy’s mind between bravery and reward. Fresh off the excitement of the slide, Trainer Paul tosses his keys to ensure Benelli still knows it’s work time. – Good, get it. – [Narrator] And she happily does her job. – Benelli, great, get it. Benelli, get it. Good girl. – [Narrator] There’s still one more slide for Benelli to attempt. (dramatic drumbeats) The spiral slide. That is, if she can get up to it. With a bit of a running start… – Benelli, jump. – [Narrator] …she makes the leap. – Good girl. – [Narrator] Her lesson from the other slide has her excited to try this one. Having never seen them before five minutes ago, slides are now simple for the six-month-old Chocolate Lab. – Woo hoo hoo! Good girl!
    Good girl. – [Narrator] Back with the dogs in down stay, ^Karen tries to refocus Remmy. She tries to get the Golden to heel, and focus in, but the eight-month-old won’t settle down. This isn’t good. Remmy’s future owner will count on her, day in and day out. And, it looks like Remmy’s lack of focus is starting to spread. Luke, get back! Come on, Karen’s trying to focus on Remmy. Kaya, are you serious? Come on! – Kaya, no! – [Narrator] All three Goldens have the sillies now, even usually dependable Luke. Kaya has to refocus, and quick. It’s her turn to walk the playground. ^The eight-month-old enjoys jumping on different surfaces. – Good girl! Good girl. Come on, let’s go. – [Narrator] The straight slide. – Good girl! Good girl, Kaya! Good girl! – [Narrator] And when it’s time for the spiral slide, what was a tough jump for Benelli is an easy hop for Kaya. But, what goes up must come down, and Kaya’s confused how that’s supposed to happen. When Sandy, the owner of Doggie Do Good, leads the way, Kaya eventually figures it out. She’s immediately praised for her bravery. – Good girl! Good girl! – [Narrator] A second attempt down the slide… (laughs) Oh, look at you. Oh, no. Good try, Kaya.
    Good try. – Good girl. Good girl, Kaya. – [Narrator] But, what’s important is that Kaya’s conquered her fear, and admirably so. Back in the down stay, it looks like Remy has finally calmed… Oh. Relax, Remmy.
    It’s just a bird. All right.
    Good girl, Remmy. Thank goodness you’re finally starting to show some self-control, otherwise today could have been the day you failed at… Oh no. – [Trainer] Remmy! – [Narrator] Breaking from a down stay to this degree is a bad sign. With Karen working with Kaya, Paul has to leave the dogs to find where Remmy ran off. Even though they’re unsupervised, they don’t dare to break; no one wants the fate that’s about to befall Remmy. Lockdown. Remmy now has to think about what she’s done, and hope it doesn’t mean expulsion. ^Now, it’s Luke’s turn to take a lap around the playground. – Good boy. – [Narrator] His first challenge is the rocking horse. Karen is trying to get Luke to jump over it, in preparation for future awkward spaces. – Stay. – [Narrator] Luke is not having it. – Good boy.
    Jump over it. – [Narrator] He hasn’t had problems of bravery in the past, so this is a new issue. – Over it.
    Nope. Over it.
    Good boy, come on. – [Narrator] Eventually, our hero figures it out. – Good, good! Good boy! – [Narrator] And Karen is sure to reward his courage. – Good job! Good boy, let’s go! – [Narrator] If Luke shows the same hesitation on the slide, then… – Good boy! – [Narrator] …well, nevermind. – Good job, Luke! Good boy! – [Narrator] Looks like after only a couple attempts, he’s already a pro. – Good job!
    Good boy! – [Narrator] Good job, buddy. – Good job. – [Narrator] When Luke returns to down stay, he finds Deacon is still getting used to his harness. He’s not quite sure why he can’t flip all the way over on his back. Paul straightens him out, and it’s back to down stay. ^Okay, Remmy. ^You’ve had a tough day so far, so time to redeem yourself on the playground. First up is the rocking horse that Luke struggled with. – Come on.
    Good girl. Over it. – [Narrator] Just like with her half-brother, it’s a matter of confidence. – Let’s go. – [Narrator] And it suddenly looks like Remmy’s lost most of hers. The culprit? The pirate ship steering wheel. – Just need a second. – [Narrator] Notice how her tail is tucked between her legs? So do the trainers. They’re hyper-aware of the pup’s attitude, and this is a huge signal from Remmy. Karen gets down on Remmy’s level and starts feeding her treats. She pets her and praises her, trying to show Remmy she’s safe. Remmy then has to pass by the wheel several more times, ensuring the dog has confronted her fear. – [Karen] Good girl. – [Narrator] If Karen can get Remmy to sniff the wheel or be still next to it, that’s going to be a great indication that Remmy’s making progress. – Good girl! – [Narrator] Eventually, a sniff. – [Karen] Good job! – [Narrator] And after a few more laps, her tail starts to wag again. Remmy’s done extremely well, and with so much excitement already had on the playground, the slide can wait for another day. ^Back on the grass, the undeniable Mr. Pip ^finds himself in an embarrassing situation. – [Trainer] Mr. Pip. – [Narrator] Because he is by far the worst at down stay, Mr. Pip has to be tied up, to the other dogs. Luke seems confused why he has to babysit, but he doesn’t mind. It gives him something to watch as he snacks on the grass. – [Trainer] Luke, leave it. Luke, release. – [Narrator] Finally, some respect. Unbelievable. Chin up, Mr. Pip. You’re still a hero in our hearts. (Mr. Pip whines) ^Another hero from Doggie Do Good is recent graduate Sammy. Sammy transitioned to his forever family only five months ago, but his bond with handler Bryce has been immediate. Sammy helps Bryce with several diagnoses, including generalized anxiety disorder, ADHD, inflammatory bowel disease, and bipolar disorder. One way Sammy aids Bryce is during Bryce’s regular blood draws. Before going into an appointment, Sammy gives Bryce hugs and pressure, helping to prepare the boy for the anxiety the needles cause. During the draws, Sammy gives Bryce constant pressure to help him feel more comfortable. Sammy knows Bryce isn’t in distress now, but the 18-month-old lab checks in constantly, making sure, if Bryce ever needs him, he’s there. While Bryce’s family had always had animals, at first, they weren’t sure about adding a service dog. The support that Sammy’s provided in only his first few months, however, has made it all worth it. Someday, the puppies in training will have similar bonds with their owners and be just as important to a family as Sammy is. Back with the student pups, it’s time for a long walk on the beach. ^Or at least next to it. ^Remmy’s had a big day, so trainer Paul takes this walk very slow. Whenever Remmy begins to pull away or move in a different direction, the trainer stops. This teaches Remmy to stay focused. During a heel, the puppies need to be paying attention to the handler constantly, not drifting away on their own line. – [Paul] Good girl. – [Narrator] Eventually, Remmy starts to do better. On the stairs, heel is even more difficult for these pups. Dogs want to be on even ground, and prefer bolting up and down steps. The people they’ll someday aid, however, may need help with stairs, so it’s important the puppies learn patience. To end her day, Paul works with Remmy on one of her special abilities: hug. As difficult as the day has been for the young Golden, it’s important to remember that someday she’ll be a huge comfort to a lucky family. It’s going to take work and patience, but it’s clear it’ll be worth it. – Release. Good. – [Narrator] Some dogs can become nervous on the pier, as the spaces between the uneven surfaces can be uncomfortable under their paws. ^Not our Mr. Pip, though. ^He even finds the time to get in some of his best down stay work to date. Good boy, Mr. Pip. As the day winds down, Paul begins ^to test a special skill with Kaya: steady. Steady allows people with mobility issues to put pressure on a dog, to sit down, stand up, or just regain their balance. It’s one of Deacon’s specialties, and might someday be Kaya’s as well. Knowing her eight-month-old joints are still developing, Paul puts only the lightest of pressure over her legs. Once she’s grown, she’ll be able to take much more weight, and may even wear a harness like Deacon. At the end of the day, some dogs took steps forward, while others, steps back. For all these puppies, though, it’s still too soon to tell who will flunk out, and who will graduate Puppy Prep. (light cheerful music)

    20-Hour 4-Stroke Outboard Engine Service | BoatUS

    November 9, 2019


    [Wave sounds]
    Hey there, folks. Lenny Rudow here for BoatUS Magazine. Today we’ve come to Annapolis Boat Sales,
    and the reason we’ve come here is because we’ve got Benny Quinn, a master tech. This guy knows what he’s talking about when
    it comes to outboards, and we are going to look at a checklist today of everything you
    need to do before you tow your boat to the ramp, before you start it up and go for a
    run, whatever you’re doing … in addition, of course, to what it says in your owners
    manual. So, Benny, tell me, what is the very first
    thing you should do? Benny: Lenny, the first thing you do is pull
    your dipstick out, wipe it out as you come out. This is the proper way to do it. Stick it back in, and then take your reading
    and make sure that your level is correct. Now, Lenny, now is a good time to remind everybody
    that they need to run a really good fuel stabilizer, especially with ethanol fuels today. Next thing you want to check, Lenny, is make
    sure that your mounting bolts are not loose, corroded, or damaged in any way. You also want to check back in here that the
    head of the bolt is not sucking into the transom and cracking the gelcoat. Next thing you want to check, Lenny, is you
    want to make sure [sound of engine coming up] that your prop and your skeg are in good
    shape. Lenny: Now, what happens if you see something
    like this? Benny: Uh, chances are you have internal damage
    in your lower unit. Hey, Lenny. Bring me that cowling. Lenny: Why in the world do you need this?! Benny: Well, birds will come up in here and
    build a nest there, Lenny, and it blocks the airflow to the engine. Lenny: So that’s actually something you want
    to check before every trip? Benny: Absolutely! Lenny: OK. Benny: Absolutely! Next thing, Lenny, when you get the boat to
    the water you want to make sure that your telltale is putting out water cause it could
    mean that either your water pump impeller is going bad or you have an insect that’s
    actually got up in there and made a nest. Lenny: If no water’s coming out? Benny: If no water’s coming out. Lenny: Gotcha. Now the remaining 20-hour check, that’s one
    you want to do out on the water, right? Benny: Yes, Lenny. What you want to do is you want to make sure
    that the boat is reaching max RPM. So open up your throttle for a few seconds
    and make sure that you’re hitting that max RPM. If you are not, it could mean that you have
    a potential engine issue. Lenny: Ahhh. Well, those are your 20-hour checks. Now, of course, at 50 hours and 100 hours,
    there will be another series of checks to do. We hope you’ve enjoyed this video, and we
    hope you’ll leave your comments below. Please also don’t forget if there are any
    other topics you would like BoatUS Magazine to address, just say the word, and we hope

    How to Compression Test an Outboard Motor | BoatUS

    November 8, 2019


    Hey there, folks. Lenny Rudow here for BoatUS Magazine. Today we’re going to talk compression checks. Everybody hears about a compression check
    and everyone knows that when you buy a boat with a used outboard on it, you should get
    a compression check. Well, why is that? We have outboard technician Sean Stahl here
    with us today to tell us. Why should you get a compression test? You want to get a compression test because
    you basically want to see how much life the engine still has, you want to see how much
    wear is on the piston and the piston rings, and you want to see how much air is being
    pushed through the engine. The engine is a giant air pump, is what it
    is. And how does the compression test tell you? What do you look for during the test? What you’re looking for is, you’re looking
    at the PSI in each cylinder, so if one cylinder is 120, you want to go off that cylinder and
    base it off — you want them to be within 10 percent of one another. Ah! So every cylinder should have about 10 percent
    of the same amount of pressure. Correct. So if one cylinder is at 120, all the others
    cylinders should be relatively between 110 PSI to 120 PSI. Gotcha. OK, Sean, let’s get started. Show me what to do. Alright. So the first thing we’re going to do is pull
    off this cover right here. It’s pretty easy … sometimes. Alright. Then you’ve got four 10 mm bolts. Take those out. And of course different engines will have
    different access points to get to the plugs. Correct. And we’re doing this on a … ? This is a
    175 Yamaha inline four. Now they’re out of the way. The next thing we’re going to want to do is
    pull the plugs. And the plugs are usually a five-eighths socket. So even though you only compression test one
    cylinder at a time, you pull all the plugs out right from the start. Correct. And why is that? It’s just so the engine doesn’t fire. It allows the maximum amount of air to get
    into the engine. Like I said before, the engine is a giant
    air pump. You want to get as much air into the engine
    as possible. That way you get a good accurate reading. I’d imagine it would be quite a mess if it
    actually fired off. Now what about fuel? Isn’t fuel flowing into the cylinders while
    you do that? That is correct. Usually what I normally do is on the side
    of the engine there’s a 15-amp fuse for the fuel pump. I’ll take the 15-amp fuse out to keep the
    fuel pump from pumping fuel. Gotcha. So there’s no fuel actually moving through
    the motor when you’re doing this? Correct. If you get fuel into the cylinders, it will
    wash out your readings. They’ll vary. So this is your gauge here. What are we looking at? Alright, so this is a compression gauge right
    here. As you can see it has your PSI readings on
    here, ranging from 25 all the way to 300. When we’re doing the compression test, it’s
    just going to trap the air inside and give you a good, accurate reading on how much air
    is being pushed through the cylinder. And how does that attach into where the spark
    plug was. So, the way it attaches is you have this piece
    right here. This is the end … it almost looks like an
    air hose end to it. This end will go in here, and this end will
    actually go into the cylinder where the spark plug is. Let’s do it up! Let’s see it! So, usually what I do is I leave the end off
    first, then I’ll twist this in to the cylinder until it’s tight. Then just clip this on. Excellent! Leave it sitting there, and then I would do
    my compression test. [SOUND OF ENGINE TRYING TO TURN OVER] Good! And that cylinder is at 200. [SOUND OF ENGINE TRYING TO TURN OVER] Good! So, that’s our compression test. And we should mention that before you do it,
    the engine has to be? Hot. It should be warmed up ahead of time. Correct. So what did we learn? All four cylinders are at 200 PSI, so they’re
    definitely well within 10 percent of one another, and this engine’s got a lot of life left. Excellent, which is no shocker since this
    is a brand new motor. Correct. Well, folks, we hope you’ve enjoyed this video,
    and we hope you’ll leave any comments you might have in the spot below. And of course, don’t forget to subscribe to
    the BoatUS YouTube channel. Thanks a lot!
