  • Top 9 Hypoallergenic Dog Breeds

    My Four Legged Friend
    Pamela Gentry
    31 Aug 2015 | 9:00 am
    If you love dogs but find you have allergy attacks when they are around, you are not alone. The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology reports that about 10% of the American population is allergic to dogs. Fret not. Although no dog is 100% hypoallergenic, there are several breeds of dogs that allergy sufferers will do better with. What makes certain dogs more hypoallergenic than others? Dogs termed as hypoallergenic have a coat that does not shed and less dander is produced. Most pet allergies in humans are caused by dander that is attached to pet hair. Even when you have a…

    The Golden Poodle award goes to all the people who helped return Coco, the 16-year-old Poodle, to her family 770 miles away. A Neanderthal award goes to the woman who picked up the lost Coco, took her home 770 miles away and then turned her out when she realized Coco was not a puppy. Another Golden Poodle award goes to all the people who looked for and supplied a forever home for the odd couple, Gizmo the Chihuahua and Duke the Pit Bull, so they could stay together. Another Neanderthal award goes to the family of Gizmo and Duke who neglected and abused them before abandoning them to a high…

    28 Aug 2015 | 11:33 am
    Does your doggie need a little TLC from you? Doing things to make your dog happy is likely to make you happy in the process. The following are many great ways to spread a bit of cheer into your dog’s life. Take time to play with your dog every day. Even if you feel tired from a long day of work, your dog needs you to take some time out and help him get some exercise. You may even be surprised that you feel better yourself! Keep your dog’s water supply fresh. You wouldn’t want to drink warm water that has been sitting in a bowl for days and neither would your dog. Fresh water is…
  • Puppies and Mange

    Pamela Gentry
    27 Aug 2015 | 7:49 am
    Mange is a skin disease caused by several species of tiny mites that are common external parasites found in companion canines. There are some mange mites that are normal for your dog’s skin and hair to have, while others do not belong. If mites multiply, they can cause mild to severe skin infections. All puppies raised normally by their mothers have demodectic mange mites.  They are transferred from the mother to the puppy when they are cuddling during the first few days of life. Most puppies live with their mites and don’t suffer any consequences. Types of Mange A localized case of…
  • Olive Oil for Dogs

    Pamela Gentry
    25 Aug 2015 | 11:35 am
    Many people have heard about all of the positive benefits of olive oil. Did you know that olive oil is also good for your dog? In order for a dog to receive all of the benefits of olive oil, they will need to eat ½ to 1 tablespoon of it every day. Your dog is likely to enjoy the taste of olive oil, but not on its own. It is better to mix it with their wet food or drizzle it over their kibble. It will give their food a pleasant, mild flavor that they will like. Due to the monounsatured fats in olive oil, ingesting it breaks down the fat inside of fat cells and encourages weight loss. This is…
  • Dog Backpacks

    Pamela Gentry
    24 Aug 2015 | 6:59 am
    When you are walking your dog regularly, adding a backpack to the scenario is a great way to change things up a bit. A backpack is one of the simplest and powerful ways to make his walk more efficient and challenging. Backpacks are great because they make your dog feel useful. It gives them a task to do as they walk next to you. Backpacks also help to redirect the focus of your dog’s attention. Your dog may become less likely to chase after squirrels or other distractions as he has a job to do. If you have a small dog, you can put an empty backpack on them. For any dog, in the beginning you…

    Bear, a 2-year-old  black Lab rescue dog, played a key role in making the case against Jared Fogle. Bear has been trained to sniff out electronic devices. During a search of Fogle’s home in Zionsville, Indiana, Bear found a well hidden flash drive that was vital to the investigation and subsequent arrest. Fogle agreed to plead guilty to charges of receiving child pornography and paying for sex with minors. In his short career Bear has worked five investigations for the Indiana Crimes Against Children Task Force. Bear and his handler work for a company called Tactical Detection K-9.

    Toby Brooks was 9-years-old when he got Coco for a birthday present and they have been together ever since. Today he has three young daughters, ages 8, 3 and 2. One of the children left the gate open on July 20 and Coco went missing from their home in North Carolina. When she couldn’t be found, they feared the worse for their tiny dog who is blind and deaf. Nearly three weeks later she turned up in a town 770 miles away in Massachusetts. With no microchip or tags this could have had an unhappy ending except for animal control officer Anna Kuralt-Fenton and several others. After Coco’s…

    It was a long, expensive journey but Georgia Bradley, a British university student, and Pepper, the stray dog who rescued her, are together at last. It all started when Ms. Bradley was walking on a remote beach in Greece while her boyfriend was at a nearby café. She was approached by two strange men who invited her to go for a drink, then continued to harass her when she rejected them. Becoming more aggressive, one of them grabbed her arm, but help came from an unexpected place. A small black dog suddenly appeared, barking at the men and scaring them off. The dog even followed her back to…

They relied on the kindness of strangers to get through this journey with giving them a place to stay, food, company, etc. How inspiring!

    I’m going to admit something to you… I’m scared right now. Each day is a blessing and you have to learn to take the good with the bad. I’ve almost been a widow 3 times. It starts off simple enough. A cold here. An ache there. Nothing big, just a small thing that has healthy people bounding back in a week. But not for us. Hubs is sick again… and you know it’s bad when he’s staying home from work. (We think it’s a head cold but the mucus is getting to his lungs.) Normal people stay home from work but I’ve seen my husband go to work with IV lines…

    Just shy of my husband’s 10th transplant anniversary and he was given the news… “You’re in chronic rejection”, says the transplant doctor. In his specific case, the air fills his “hand-me-down” lungs but, when he exhales, the air gets caught in microscopic air sacs. There’s no terminology or label for this specific lung malfunction so they group it into this thing called “chronic rejection”. Well if that’s not just a shot in the pants! There are so many reactions someone could have to hearing the term chronic rejection. But, what do we do? We laugh! We laugh at labels…

    When you love someone, so deeply that it affected the core of your soul, there are no words to describe what it’s like being torn between being there for them in their time of need and taking care of other responsibilities that just can’t be put off any longer. Your heart aches as you part ways – knowing they will need to face this part of the journey alone. The tears get caught in your throat as you yearn to find the right words to comfort them over the miles… the words that would normally be easily found in a simple holding of hands. I’m trying not to cry but the tears have other…

    Before an organ transplant, when you’re body is frail and you don’t know if you are going to live or die, your main goal is to stay alive long enough to get that transplant. Every moment it is about surviving long enough to witness the miracle of organ donation in your life and to come out the other side of the transplant alive. There is no way to prepare yourself for life after transplant, it just the transplant itself that matters. Whether you are the one having the organ transplant or a caregiver/family member, you are blinded to what exists on the other side of that surgery. I liken…

  • Pet Safety: How Safe Are Pet Products?

    Mary Haight
    11 Aug 2015 | 10:15 pm
    I noticed a tweet to the FDA the other day, asking them to make sure pet products are safe before they’re sold in stores. Someone’s puppy had died. I wondered if the petitioner discovered there are no regulations requiring pet products be tested for safety before going to market. According to the Center for Pet Safety this includes toys, even safety equipment like life jackets (and it is reported that one was built so poorly, test results are said to indicate it assists your dog in drowning) safety harnesses, carriers, crates, pet car seats and more.

    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? These questions and many more are answered in our…

    If you’ve ever had a dog bolt out the front door and down the street, back out of a collar in fear and run, or wondered what you would do if you lost your dog, this is the podcast for you. Finding lost dogs takes a small army of community members who know many of the finer points of what works and what doesn’t in catching a dog that has reverted to her primal mind — a dog that does not recognize her own family when they call out for her. It’s a harsh lesson so many learn the hard way, even as their dog left the house moments ago, calling her name and chasing her does…

    Dog Training the American Male is not the type of book I would normally feature. It’s a novel. On its face, it’s an adult comedy about relationships between men and women and the universally recognized communications difficulties that happen when a couple decides to move in together. Differences between the way men and women think offered throughout the story may make you smile or shake your head in recognition, but it’s when the “surprise” of an untrained, saved-from-certain-death-at-animal-control German Shepherd enters the mix that you might find yourself laughing out…

  • Distractions Happen

    Cindy Bruckart
    27 Aug 2015 | 2:32 pm
    If you're a student of dog training, you're probably well aware of the oft suggested protocol of teaching new behaviors in a low distraction environment and slowly adding in distractions until the behavior becomes reliable. This is, of course, the easiest way for a dog to learn what you'd like them to do and to be able to do that thing regardless of distractions. However, in the real world, distractions happen. To avoid them completely until the dog is "trained" is simply unrealistic.   In my training classes, there are times when I'm teaching my students how to teach their dogs to be calm…
  • BARKING UP THE WRONG TREE — FOR 110 YEARS?

    Dr. Ian Dunbar
    7 May 2015 | 7:01 pm
    Edward Lee Thorndike showed that behavior is modified by its consequences and in 1905, he published his Law of Effect, basically stating: Any behavior followed by pleasant consequences will increase in frequency and be more likely to occur in the future, whereas any behavior followed by unpleasant consequences will decrease in frequency and be less likely to occur in the future. The notion of binary feedback is the quintessence of learning theory. The Law of Effect was a wonderful start but as theory was put to practice in education and training, something went very wrong along the way.

    Genie Tuttle CPDT-KA CNWI

    Living with a reactive dog is a humbling experience on many levels. The understanding of the world that humans gain via language, experience and rational explanations for nearly everything are not part of the reactive dog's natural repertoire. However, we might be more similar at a basic level than we choose to admit. Taking time to shake off the clinical topography and protocols now and then and just reconnecting with how fear really feels can make us better trainers. One of my dogs, Niki, came to us at 2 years old from the greyhound racing industry where he grew up and raced his entire…
  • Why Purchase a Puppy that is NOT Housetrained?

    Dr. Ian Dunbar
    1 Apr 2015 | 12:25 pm
    I’ve raised a few puppies in my time and it has always puzzled me why anyone would want to purchase a puppy that hasn’t already been housetrained, especially since house soiling and other behavior problems, such as excessive barking and destructive chewing, are a major source of frustration for new owners. Most kennel-bred puppies are allowed to eliminate anywhere and everywhere, chew anything and everything, bark at will and run around uncontrolled, which of course, is exactly what they’ll do in their new homes. Consequently, far too many eight-week-old puppies already have behavior...

    18 Mar 2015 | 9:13 am
    Dogs may be taught manners and basic obedience at anytime in their lives. However, training puppies is just so much fun and so, why wait? Similarly, behavior problems may be resolved at any time in a dog’s life but of course, they are annoying and frustrating for owners and so, why not teach good habits from the outset?

    15 Aug 2015 | 3:48 pm
    With a senior dog that has only 5 teeth left, I face the daunting task of finding a soft, all-natural jerky treat that she can actually eat. It has become somewhat of a never ending quest. I recently stumbled across a new brand out on the market called “Fifi & Fido“. I asked them if I could be provided with a free sample to review and they Imogene Loves #fififido! provided me with a free 16 oz bag (retail value approximately $30 – but this bag has lasted well over a month).  I was compensated to post this review and share on ThePhillyDog’s social media channels.

    The 4th of July is upon us and my dog Imogene is already pacing and panting. When I first started ThePhillyDog, I reviewed the Thundershirt and the Anxiety Wrap for Dash’s separation anxiety. While it wasn’t the cure-all for Dash’s issues, I’ve found that both products truly helped Imogene when the thunderstorms start. I plan on using it for tonight’s fireworks as well. Check out my video review of both products (I purchased both the anxiety wrap and the Thundershirt): Just to get a better look – here it is in action. While you may not be able to hear the…

    Small Dogs Agility Training My Lhasa Apso small dogs Chester and Roxie learned how to do some agility relatively late when they were nine years old.  We started out with hurdles and then the ramp.  Here is the agility ramp blog post and video from last year when they were just learning how to do the ramp.  Notice that they were still being led on leashes. Now, both Chester and Roxie can do the hurdles as well as the ramp without the need for leashes.  In fact, they are so good at them that they have been very successful as assistant coaches to help teach their doggie friends from our…

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…

    by Carrie Boyko, CEBAdd Yourself or a Toy for Swimming "Work"Just like my dogs, each of yours come from a rich history of jobs that they were once trained for and worked at daily. Even if your pup is a Heinz 57 mix, he has likely got a strong suit of instincts that can help you guide him through activities that will work his brain, helping to keep him young. Finding these interests will be key to working your senior dog as he ages and is less able to handle extensive, physical activity.Not sure what your dog's instincts are?

How would someone be able to contact my peep? How would I get home if I ran far away? This was enough to make me paw-der and I had to ask my peep why? Well, I just haven’t found one that I liked.

    Guest Author Ever hear the expression Christmas in July? Many believe it stemmed from this point in the middle of the year, halfway between the end of the last Yuletide celebration and awaiting the next arrival of the winter festivities. Still others fathom it was dreamt up by advertising executives to hock Christmas items at clearance prices in the middle of the year. For all intents and purposes, there’s a little truth to all of these statements and many more. According to some sources, the first use of the actual phrase “Christmas in July,” was an English translation of a French…

    Henry is a 9 weeks old French Bulldog. His attention span is measured in tens of a second. Anybody makes an ‘Ooh’ or an ‘Aah’ and he thinks that it’s people that like him so he’s run there.

Many are unaware that some “human” food can be very harmful for our four legged family members and cause serious health problems, and in some cases this oversight can even be fatal.Here are some directions on which food your dog shouldn’t take because it can be harmful for them.Chocolate – This is something every dog owner should know- Never give a chocolate to your dog. Consuming chocolate can be fatal to the dog. Even a little piece of…

Well we did the research on dog demographics and found out where all the dogs are.

    facebook http://www.nationaldogday.com/ National Dog Day (Also known as: World Dog Day, International Dog Day & National Dog Appreciation Day) is celebrated August 26th annually and serves to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year, and acknowledges family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. Dogs put their lives on the line every day – for their law enforcement partner, for their blind companion, for a child who is disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and…
  • August 15th is Check the Chip Day

    12 Aug 2015 | 11:00 am
    Friday August 15 has been declared as “Check the Chip Day,” by the American Veterinary Medicine Association (AVMA) and the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). What is the day? Check the Chip Day serves as a good reminder to make sure your dog’s microchip contact information is correct. What are the benefits? Microchips greatly increase the chances that you’ll get your pet back if he/she is lost or stolen…but a microchip only works if its registration information is accurate. What steps do I take? Step 1: Make an appointment with your veterinarian for microchipping if…

  • 9 Things to do this National Mutt Day July 31

    hachikome
    29 Jul 2015 | 6:50 am
    Happy National Mutt Day!! What is a Mutt? A mixed-breed dog is a testament to nature. Without any input from humans, the mixed breed defies description. Available in all sizes, shapes, colors, and patterns, he might have a long snout or a short nose. He may display prick ears or floppy ones. 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. Or in simpler terms just the cutest dogs ever! Proof: How can you…

    Why are we talking about shaving a dog and a bald man in the same blog post?  I would have wondered the same thing 10 years ago when I had a full head of hair, but around that time I noticed my hair line receding, a bald patch forming on the top of my head, and thinning throughout.  I […] The post Why You Shouldn’t Shave Your Dog – Written By A Bald Man appeared first on Puppy In Training.

  • Is a Big Yard Just an Excuse to Ignore Your Dog?

    Jen Gabbard
    25 Aug 2015 | 4:53 am
    Have you noticed how often the term “big yard” is mentioned when it comes to adopting a dog? “Oh Fido would benefit from a big yard to run in” I know we mean well by desiring these things for our dogs, but having a big yard does not guarantee a dog will be well taken care of. It reminds me of rescues requiring potential adopters to have a fenced yard. Having a fence is not a good indication of how an owner is going to treat their dog. Is a big yard or fence nice? Of course, but they’re luxuries, not necessities. Dedication and commitment make a good dog owner,…

  • Please Stop Asking “Whose Walking Who?”

    Jen Gabbard
    20 Aug 2015 | 3:34 am
    Not only do I allow my dog to walk in front of me – I even let her walk through doors before me. I know what you’re thinking; “but letting a dog walk ahead of you means they’re in control.” Does it really? In control of what? My home, my thoughts, all of my hopes & dreams? Nearly every time I’m out walking Laika someone has to ask “whose walking who?” What makes it worse is that it’s usually someone yelling out their car window which is always a bit startling to say the least. And guess what? It’s getting old. I’ve heard it…

    Dog Walking Can Feel Tedious at Times I bet your daily dog walk gets tedious, I know mine does when I stick to the same old route. And I’m sure that’s why only half of us take our dog for a daily walk. To make sure keep up with walking every day I keep these little motivational tips in mind. And these little reminders work – Laika and I have a walking routine that’s been easy to stick to. The only difficulty was making it a habit to begin with, but once that habit was formed it became second nature. Unless the weather gets unruly or one of us is sick we’re out…

  • Woman Transforms Herself With Makeup To Match Her Dog–You Gotta See This!

    Mr.Dog
    31 Aug 2015 | 3:20 pm
    Sometimes people tend to say that a person’s dog can take after them… or even that they somewhat resemble each other. My poodle takes after my personality sometimes, so I can definitely agree with that! But what about transforming yourself into your dog? Well, with the power of makeup, anything is possible! Makeup artists are incredibly creative, and use their talents to turn faces into stunning works of art. Talented makeup artist Ilana Kolihnov recently came up with the idea to use her skills to transform herself into a dog–to match her beautiful Siberian Husky, Aiibi. You’ve gotta…
  • English Bulldog Is Giddy For Her Birthday Present Surprise

    31 Aug 2015 | 3:18 pm
    Well, if you ask me, I’m definitely guilty of that! Most dog lovers just love to spoil their dogs. Not only do we give our dogs what they need, we give them sweet little (and sometime big) gifts because we love to see the joy in their faces. We even treat them like royalty, like they are the kings and queens of the house! And every royal member needs a castle to live in, right? So this English Bulldog princess got a castle from her mom for her birthday! The pink castle even has alligator toy guards at the doorway! You just gotta see her reaction when she sees it! x…
  • Pit Bulls Who’ve Just Been Adopted And Feeling Love For The First Time

    31 Aug 2015 | 3:15 pm
    It’s really sad that some people think of Pit Bulls generally as aggressive and dangerous dogs. What’s even sadder is when these poor dogs don’t get adopted because of the fear of their breed. Pit Bulls are just like any other dog. Any breed of dog can be dangerous if they’re not raised right by their owners. But if raised right in a loving home, Pit Bulls can be just as sweet and loving! This heartwarming video by The Dodo features a compilation of video clips of Pit Bulls who have been just adopted. You will see how sweet these dogs really are! For the first time they’re feeling…
  • This Little Pup Is The Handiest Farm Dog We’ve Ever Seen

    Mr.Dog
    31 Aug 2015 | 3:10 pm
    When farmers are looking for a dog to help them around the property, they’re typically looking for Border Collies, Australian Kelpies or mixes known for their outstanding working ability. In fact, these breeds are still very widely used for their original purposes today. But the folks over at Sunflower Farm Creamery had a different idea and we never expected to see the tiny little pup in this video. Even better, we never expected she’d be so great at what she does! Lola is a tiny Chihuahua puppy that is only half the size of the chickens, but she has no problem at all running around with…

I’m Juno their playmate; protector; guard dog; buddy bear; nursemaid; baby sitter and; all around entertainer. I take care of them and love them dearly so you know, I practice a lot of patience when I’m with them. They can be demanding at times. You know how babies are. They’d like to assert themselves and wrap humans and dogs around their fingers that’s why they want me to come closer to them. I, however, am smart to their ways.

  • Vestibular Disease In Dogs And Cats

    28 Aug 2015 | 7:02 pm
    Vestibular disease affects both dogs and cats, and when it happens, it can look very scary. The important thing to remember is that although the symptoms of vestibular disease look very similar to stroke, these are entirely different conditions altogether.Unlike stroke, which is caused by an interruption of blood flow to the brain, vestibular disease is caused by a malfunction in the mechanisms of the inner ear. Although stroke can cause permanent damage to the brain, vestibular disease does not.Vestibular disease is essentially a sudden disturbance of balance. It’s very common in cats, and…

    Dog agility, a fun and captivating sport in which dogs compete by racing through a course of various jumps and obstacles at a high rate of speed, is now recognized as the fastest growing dog sport in the world.Agility first debuted in England in 1978 as an entertaining halftime activity at the world-famous Crufts Dog Show. The creators of the demonstration based it on horse jumping competitions, creating a course to highlight dogs’ speed and natural agility. It was a huge success, and soon spread across the world as a competitive canine sport. The AKC held its first dog agility competition…
  • Stroke In Dogs And Cats

    Camille Schake
    14 Aug 2015 | 5:32 pm
    Stroke in dogs and cats happens less frequently than it does in people, but when it does occur, it’s a very serious situation.Stroke is caused when a blood vessel in the brain either becomes blocked or ruptures. In both cases, blood flow to the brain is interrupted. Since blood carries oxygen and glucose, which are critical nutrients the brain needs to survive, this lack of blood flow causes brain cells to die.Most strokes are caused by a blood clot, called an “embolus”, that develops somewhere in the body and travels to the brain. The clot then becomes lodged in a vessel and…

Do you think about being physically fit, avoiding fatty or processed foods, having positive and nurturing relationships, or maintaining a work-life balance?Now think about the term “healthy” as it applies to your pets. Do you think of the same things? If not, exactly what do you think of when you hear the term “pet health”?If you’re like most people, you probably recall the basics: a good diet, daily exercise, and regular veterinary care.

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:…
