    “Make it worth my while and I will.” Dogs are simple souls; they do what works. If, every time you speak to your dog something good happens, then he’s going to start listening out hard! Quite often, people interact with their dog solely to nag him or tell him off. Do we wonder he doesn’t want to […]

    Cici does not fetch but she sure does like Fetch Fuel. And I like that the company, GoGo Pet Products, uses only human grade and high quality ingredients, the lab and manufacturer are located in northern California and the easy squeezy bottle makes giving her the “steak sauce” a breeze. No pills to stuff into hot dogs. No messy powders nor liquid. Just gotta shake the bottle, squeeze out one tablespoon a day into her bowl and there is no muss no fuss. All Cici has to do is scarf up her food and she is good at doing that. The ingredient list includes: Glucosamine HCI, 600 mg, Flaxseed and…

    It’s been a great ride. Some of you have been with me for many years, some are new friends that I've had the pleasure to discover, and sadly, so many of my buddies through the years have let their blogs go dark. We should make a rule that you can't stop blogging without my permission and two other readers. I can’t believe how fast time has gone. I have a theory that the entire universe is speeding up. No one has tried to refute the theory. There are times when I think I may have stayed too long at the fair. Maybe I have. Blogging has changed through the years. Change is not my…

  • Do Dogs Watch TV?

    John Alfonso
    31 Jul 2015 | 12:26 pm
    In short, it depends on the dog. What breed a dog is may have an influence on how he reacts to images on the television. For example, hounds which are driven by smell may not care too much about what is visually going on, but herding breeds like terriers may be more interested. Dog owners may commonly leave on a radio or TV when they leave home, in hopes that hearing the sound will be more comforting than hearing the silence. Nicholas Dodman, veterinary behaviorist at Tufts University talks about dogs watching TV when he says, “They orient to things they’re interested in, look at it for a…
  • Dog Containment Systems

    How They Work Dog containment fences go by several names, such as electric dog fences or radio fences. They are sometimes referred to as an Invisible Fence®, although this is actually a brand name of underground fencing system. Whatever you call it, a dog containment system works by using three main components. The first is the boundary wire. In an underground system, the wire is buried beneath the ground. In an above-ground system, the wire may be pinned to the top of the earth with ground staples. The wire serves as the physical boundary that your dogs are not allowed to cross. The second…
  • Why Do Dogs Wag Their Tails?

    John Alfonso
    30 Jul 2015 | 9:16 am
    According to certified veterinary behaviorist E’Lise Christensen Bell, just because a dog’s tail is wagging, this doesn’t mean it wants to be petted. She says that if you see stiffened muscles, dilated pupils, tense facial muscles or ears pinned forward or back, that you should back off. According to Animal Planet, dogs use their tails to communicate strong feelings such as agitation, annoyance and anger as well as happiness. This means that a person can get bitten by a dog that is wagging its tail. Bell says in order to figure out what the tail wag means, look at the direction it is…

Breaking Creed is the first in a series featuring ex-marine and dog handler Ryder Creed. Creed was saved from a bar fight and a wasted life by a strong angry black woman who then became his friend, confidante, family and business partner in their business training dogs. Their success has made Creed and his dogs national media stars. Although the publicity is good for business, it is more attention than Creed is comfortable having.

    PANCEVO, Serbia (AP) — Normally, Leo would run away at the sight of a bigger dog. The small dachshund liked most to cuddle with his owners or ride in the back seat of the family car. But, one day Leo showed that true bravery knows no limits. When a raging bull-mastiff cross-breed last year attacked a 10-year-old girl, Leo fearlessly jumped to her rescue, barking and biting at the dog way above his size and strength. Leo paid with his life, but the citizens of this northern Serbian town have not forgotten. Two weeks ago, a life-size bronze statue of Leo was put up next to a children’s…

    Canine arthritis can be a dog’s worst nightmare. Do you know what pain looks like in your dog? Can you describe it so your vet understands the situation? There are subtle signs you might be missing. Arthritis is often stealthy, sneaking up on you, little by little, until you notice your dog is having trouble with stairs or has lost interest in chasing the ball. By this time, pain has been making inroads in your dog’s daily life. Are you waiting too long to get treatment? How can you better observe and report changes in your dog?

    It’s a really great feeling to get involved in fundraising and know that you’ve made a difference to a great cause. However, there are so many worthy charities that it can be difficult to choose where to focus your fundraising efforts. Here are just some of the reasons why the RSPCA is a great charity to get involved with: The RSPCA is independent The RSPCA is not funded by the government and so therefore mainly relies on voluntary donations and fundraising. The RSPCA chooses to remain independent as this means that they are free to lobby for changes regarding the welfare of animals…

    If asked about food allergies and intolerance, many of us would have a friend or relative who is unable to digest wheat or dairy. In fact it is so uncommon that restaurants and retailers now cater for a wide range of intolerances and allergies, so why are we yet to consider our pets and their intolerances? Food intolerance and allergies in pets are becoming increasingly common and for one pair of dog owners a blood test led to a vast improvement in health for their much-loved pet.

Across dog walking hot spots you will find a mixture of breeds, shapes, and sizes, often allowed to roam around off their leads in the open spaces.

    Other Dogs Are Best Assistant Dog Trainers Last year my Lhasa Apso dogs Chester and Roxie started going agility training at home when I made two hurdle jumps for them.  Agility training sessions like the ones we do are considered to be worthwhile activities for dogs especially as they get older since not only does it exercises their bodies but also their minds.  Dogs have to think and pay attention when doing agility training like hurdle jumps and ramps. One of the local leash free dog parks we visit on a regular basis has set up some agility training apparatus including a ramp, two hurdle…

    Introducing FOXY!   Foxy is a 4 year-old rescue pittie mix. Though she has had a hard start to life, she has remained a sweetheart and loves humans. She’s always happy to meet new people anywhere, greeting them enthusiastically! She is shy towards other dogs; in her first group class at the Zoom Room last December she tried to hide under a stool. 60lbs is a lot of dog to try to hide under a little stool! Now, eight months later, she has grown tremendously. Having graduated from Obedience 2, she is now ready to train for her Canine Good Citizen test. Foxy loves toy ropes, squeaky…

    Dogs Happier In Groups My last post featured some photos of our Mississauga GTA Small Dogs Outings Meetup group going out to Sawmill Creek in Mississauga, Ontario for our Midweek Walk.  Since I had a feeling that we would have a record high of dogs coming out (and we did at 11 dogs), I brought out my old camcorder to shoot some video footage. The overall video footage taken was pretty good and I was able to turn it into a pretty entertaining clip showing the initial gathering when all the dogs arrive and meet their friends to the walk on the trail and finally just relaxing and mingling at…

    Other Dogs Are Best Assistant Dog Trainers Last year my Lhasa Apso dogs Chester and Roxie started going agility training at home when I made two hurdle jumps for them.  Agility training sessions like the ones we do are considered to be worthwhile activities for dogs especially as they get older since not only does it exercises their bodies but also their minds.  Dogs have to think and pay attention when doing agility training like hurdle jumps and ramps. One of the local leash free dog parks we visit on a regular basis has set up some agility training apparatus including a ramp, two hurdle…

    Puppies Respecting Older Dogs Our Small Dogs Outings Meetup group has seen a big increase in the number of puppies join up with us this spring.  As expected, many of these puppies, who are less than a year old, are still all over the place in terms of leash walking with their owners and a bit hyper-energetic.  They also have not really learned the boundaries sometimes expected of older dogs like my Lhasa Apso dogs Chester and Roxie. My dogs who are ten years old along with another Shih Tzu, Emmy, who is eleven, are generally not as hyper as the puppies.  They show a much calmer demeanour…

We mapped out a 2.5-mile course on the yellow and green trails. It's still super hot here, so we didn't want to overdo it.The parking lot was filled with horse trailers when we got there, and we weren't sure how the dogs would react to horses on the trail.

My peep spent a lot of money for the perfect bed for herself. She understood that she spends a 1/3 of her life in it and wanted to make sure her bed would be comfortable, help with a good night sleep and most importantly that it was good quality that would last. Did you know that the average amount of sleep for adult dogs is about 12 to 14 hours per day, however it really depends on a number of…

My 60-pound dog Trucker dashes off when I pick up a menacing 9-inch-long, black-and-white apparatus that squeaks – a lint roller. My nightly routine is now molded around the sensitivity of Trucker and trying to remove pet hair from my bed pillows and sheet at the head end of my bed.

    Most dogs put up with their owners’ antics. Henry is definitely not thrilled with hanging in the baby swing. He swayed there for a good 10 minutes, but he puts up with it. The Dog Days of Summer: Vancouver, BC BTW, the expression of the “Dog Days of Summer” comes from Canis Major (the big dog) and Canis Minor (the small dog). These are two constellations that both rise and set with the sun during the summer. One of the brightest star is Sirius which is part of Canis major. The Romans (of the ancient time) believed that it was the conjunction of the sun and Sirius that made…

I haven’t run my own dog obedience classes in a long time, but this was a game I encouraged all of my classes to play! Keep Away Has your dog ever gotten loose, out the front door, run out of his collar and when you call him he comes just close enough that you can’t grab him.

And when there is no answer, there is no conversation, many claimed in order to back up this theory.  So, many rashly concluded that Snoopy is just trying to draw attention to himself and his loneliness.Dr. Don Owings, a professor of psychology and animal behavior at the…

    Feeling hot? Now imagine what it's like to your dog below all the fur, especially if it's black. Here is some advice on how to cool your dog during hot summer days: Never leave your dog in the car while it’s hot outside. Not only when it’s a hot day, but also when it’s warm! The sun can raise the temperature in the car up to 20 degrees higher than outside. This means that your dog, locked in a closed car only for a few minutes, can experience heat or heart attack.Do not save on water.

He could have a stubby tail, spindly legs, a giant spot over his left eye or all three. Drawing from a broader, more diverse gene pool, his intensity is softer than his pedigreed cousins, his drives and compulsions mercifully muted.

    Did You Celebrate National Mutt Day? After seeing all of those irritating stories about Hulk (the world’s largest Pit Bull) this week I was feeling a bit miffed. I knew I had to find a way to chill out. So to celebrate National Mutt Day (yesterday) I took Laika on a field trip. I took her to a nearby beach for a nice swim, but when we arrived there were no less than 50 people there. And although watching Laika strut her stuff, trying desperately to get all the pets from everyone was tempting, I decided to take her elsewhere. Yes, Laika whines and grovels up to strangers for attention.

    I love Bully breeds, but I don’t love how much media attention the world’s biggest Pit Bull is getting. He might be a sweet dog, but there’s nothing sweet about extreme dog breeding. Dogs bred for their extreme size are adding to the problems these dogs face, not helping.  How Much Does a Hulk Puppy Cost? I’m sure you’ve seen Hulk, the world’s largest Pit Bull. At 175 pounds he’s certainly remarkable. But what do those extreme features cost? If you want a puppy from Hulk’s breeder it’s going to set you back about $5,000. Hulk, the giant…

    Did you know that dirt roads are the perfect spot to get rid of trash? I’ve lived here for a few years now and it still amazes me how many “drive & dumps” we have; people tossing all sorts of crap onto the side of the road. We’ve seen piles of fish, dishwashers, plastic bins filled with glass shards, and so many other wonderful natural wonders – right on our own road. Last night on our walk Laika managed to find a couple of deer carcasses before I did. It quickly turned into the ‘best walk ever’ for her. She had a blast rolling around on…
  • Why Do Dogs Have Belly Buttons?

    Before writing this article I’m a little embarrassed to say I wasn’t even sure if my dog had a belly button. I was sure dogs did indeed have them, they are mammals after all. But I was stumped, after all those belly rubs how had I not noticed it? So why do dogs have belly buttons anyway? The Belly Button is Just a Scar The belly button is just a scar, it’s left after cutting off the umbilical cord. Since mammals give live birth the babies need to develop inside their mother’s womb. The umbilical cord passes along nutrients from the mother to developing baby (or puppy).

  • Dog fear aggression and training how to handle it

    31 Jul 2015 | 10:44 am
    You must have observed that your dog can get aggressive when it is frightened. This behavior is called dog fear aggression. Growling, tail tucked between the legs and ears pulled back are the signs of dog fear aggression . People may confuse dog fear aggression with direct dog aggression. Dog fear aggression is caused when a dog is frightened by any reason or situation. Dogs tend to get aggressive when frightened because they do not know any other way to deal with the fear; even though it may not be the case, they may perceive they have known other way out, causing the aggression to appear.

  • Crate training a puppy

    Many people are having problems as they really don’t know how to crate train a puppy . A crate is an extremely useful puppy raising tool. Since dogs are naturally den animals, a crate provides a safe comfortable place for your puppy to sleep and rest during the day. It is also the most effective housebreaking tool available. The crate is the only space in the entire house that truly belongs to the dog, and if used appropriately, will become a safe haven for your dog for years to come. When your puppy first comes home, he will probably cry in the crate for the first few days. This is normal…

    8 Apr 2015 | 6:15 pm
    The art of raising a well socialized, balanced, and happy dog is often overlooked. Many people are having difficulties and don’t exactly know how to raise a puppy . Well, raising a dog is NOT the same thing as training a dog. Training involves teaching behavioral responses to specific cues such as a hand signal, voice command or sound. One can then use these trained behavioral responses to modify behavior and create habits. Training usually takes place after puppy rearing, and it goes a lot easier if the pup has been raised properly, but interestingly, some dog care professionals pay…

  • This Dog Missed The Ball He Was Rolled But The Way He Covers It Up Is Priceless!

    This is so funny! Watch how this Golden Retriever missed the baseball rolled at him and see what he does to cover up his embarrassment! This very short video clip got me laughing out so loudly cos somehow, it reminded me of us humans when we get ourselves in embarrassing situations and how we try to do something else to cover up our faux pas. Our mistakes are so obvious yet we like to pretend they never happened. I didn’t realize how silly we look when things like that happen to us until I watched this video clip because the Golden Retriever got our reaction down to a T! x…

    Giving birth is the ultimate experience for any woman; human or canine, I reckon. As to nursing so many..well, if I was a mother dog, I’d be as proud as this chocolate brown Labrador mama too! She looks fit and healthy after giving birth to so many pups and I bet she has lots of milk to feed her army too! See how lovely and gorgeous they all are – so cute and teeny tiny, showing how happy and content they are by their wiggles! Who would think that in less than a year, they will be fully grown and probably bigger than their mom. Look at the Labrador mom, see how happy and proud she is of…
  • Heroic Rescued Dog Leads Workers To A Family On The Brink Of Death

    2 Aug 2015 | 4:22 pm
    Hero is a homeless dog living in a foster home that has proven to live up to his name by leading his foster owners to a homeless mother dog and her 10 sick puppies. While they were out one evening, Hero began barking to get the attention of his people and by his tone and persistence they knew something was wrong. As they followed him, Hero came to a small creek where the family was hiding. Mona, the mother, was lying with her newborn puppies after being abandoned and her babies were not in good shape. In fact, only nine were with her as the 10th was frozen outside the creek. Fortunately, the…

    This video is too cute! This adorable long-haired Dachshund has found something very special and he’s determined to hang on to it for as long as he can. Fortunately, it’s attached to him. This little guy found his tail and he’s decided to carry it around the house with him wherever he goes. We’re wondering what he thinks it actually is! He must think it’s some sort of toy, because he’s so proudly carrying it with him. We can’t help but laugh at how sweet this pup is and we’re happy that he’s going to have his tail with him everywhere. With videos like this, it’s no wonder…

    Poor Gracie, a 2-year old West Highland White Terrier, was itching all over. Some nights she stayed awake almost all night scratching at her skin and ears, and her formerly snow-white feet were beginning to stain a reddish-brown color from constantly being licked and chewed. She didn’t have fleas or any apparent skin infection, and baths with oatmeal shampoo weren’t helping. Gracie was miserable, and her mom had no idea what was wrong.After a trip to the veterinarian, who was able to rule out parasites, bacterial infection, and yeast, Gracie finally got her mystery illness diagnosis:…
  • What Is Megaesophagus?

    Camille Schake
    24 Jul 2015 | 6:35 pm
    Megaesophagus is a medical condition found in dogs, cats, horses and humans. Relatively rare in cats, but common in dogs, megaesophagus (ME) occurs when the esophagus (the fibromuscular tube that transports food from the mouth to the stomach) becomes abnormally enlarged.A normal esophagus is narrow, with 2 valves (called sphincters) at each end. When food is swallowed, it’s propelled downward through the esophagus into the stomach by a series of muscular contractions. Once the food safely reaches the stomach, the valves close, keeping both food and stomach acid in the stomach where they…

    The other day I was walking through a large pet-supply retail store (the kitties needed food, again!) when I spotted a beautiful black lab puppy. Immediately, my “squee” alert went off… this puppy was so adorable, I think I might have actually gone a little weak in the knees.But that moment was short-lived when my gaze went straight to the metal contraption around his neck. This little puppy, who couldn’t have been more than 5 months old, was sporting a rather large prong collar.The person attached to the other end of the leash was male, appeared to be mid-60’s, and couldn’t have…
  • Puppy Mouthing and Nipping: A Survival Story

    Not long ago, I got a call from a dear friend of mine asking if I would be willing to dog-sit her 4-month old puppy for five days while she traveled out of town. Having already met “Puppy” (whose name has been changed to protect the innocent), a beautiful yellow lab/husky mix with adorable ears and a sweet disposition, of course I said yes!Little did I know that accepting this mission would lead me into a combat zone that would have had even the most seasoned participants on “Naked and Afraid” running for the helicopter and crying for their mothers. Only I, unlike those survivalists,…
