Is Your Dog a Healthy Weight?

Bruce Lee

Personally, in the past I found it extremely difficult to determine if my dog was the perfect weight, overweight or underweight. I don’t have the right scale at home to weigh my dogs, and even if I did, how do I know if their weight is healthy or not? I recently went to my Veterinarian to get the yearly Rabies vaccination for Bruce Lee. She weighed Bruce Lee and did a[…]Read more

Allow a dog to approach you. We LOVE dogs, we love their soft ears, their waggin’ tails and their quirky smiles. Our instincts are all wrong though when we approach a new dog for the first time. It’s easy to forget that dogs see us as GIANTS who may or may not be out to harm them. Dogs are very protective of their families and themselves, so they have a system[…]Read more

I bought a stroller for little Rocco Jet 15 years ago, before they even had “dog strollers” available for dog owners to purchase.  I purchased strollers for human children and used them for Rocco.  I found the strollers made for infants work perfectly for little dogs because they are usually designed almost like a bassinet.  This is a great design because it keeps your dog from falling out and usually has[…]Read more

Dogs and Fireworks

Does your dog look like the photos above during the 4th of July? With every little “pop”, “crackle” and “kaboom” is your dog freaking out? Barking, running around and trying to escape to somewhere safe? The 4th of July is extremely stressful for your dog, their hearing is 10 times more sensitive than ours. It is your responsibility as a dog owner to protect your dogs from becoming over stressed. Here[…]Read more
