CAUTION COLLARS
One of the things I am passionate about is responsible dog ownership. For some, this can be a real challenge. There are dogs out there that have so much energy they don’t know what to do with themselves, and will knock you over trying to be your buddy. And what about the dogs who are blind or deaf? A blind or deaf dog may become agitated if a stranger were to reach out and pet him without fair warning first.

Enter the need for the CAUTION collar, read more...

URGENT: Why Is My Dog Pressing His Head Against The Wall?
Dogs do many weird things. One weird thing that you shouldn’t chalk up to something that is oddly charming and adorably peculiar is when a dog presses his head against a wall or door for no apparent reason. This is called “head pressing” and could be a big indicator of a serious underlying medical issue.

Keeping Kids Safe Around A Dog
One of the most heartbreaking things to happen in the life of a pet owner is when their pet bites a child. You can be the most vigilant person in the world and it still may happen. This is the hard reality of having both kids and dogs living under the same roof. No matter how many times you tell a child not to bother a dog or how much obedience training your dog has, a devastating bite can occur with or without warning:

How Social Media Has Changed The Way We Celebrate Our Pets

Posted by Lisa on 11/13/2015 to From Lisa
Twenty years ago, if I wanted to show you pictures of my dog Rocky, I would have had to snap a photo on a regular camera, take the film to a store to get developed, wait, wait some more, pick up the photos from the store, and then make the drive to your house so we could peruse the photos. Hopefully, none were blurry or I’d have to try to recreate the moment and take some more photos and repeat the cycle all over again.Today, if you want to show a friend your dog’s photo, it takes just seconds. So many of us have cameras loaded in our phones that all we have to do to take a photo is just point and tap. Sometimes, that photo is too amazing for just one person so we post it to our favorite social media site for all our followers to see. When used correctly and safely, social media sites are wonderful tools to help us stay connected. As dog lovers, we are certainly a social group of people when we get to brag about our pets. Here are my top five favorite sites to do just that:

Why I Left My Job To Be A Dog Groomer

I am pretty famous for being a ‘dog person’ within my social circles.I don’t remember a time when I wasn’t one.When I was little, whenever anyone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I always replied, “ veterinarian” as if there were any other option for me.However, that dream went away at the age of twelve when I had to dissect my first frog in science class.I quickly discovered that I was a delicate flower and gagged at the sight of guts on the table.

Having a Ball in the Fall

Posted by Lisa on 10/27/2015 to From Lisa
Since my last blog post discussed the much-needed-but-kind-of-terrifying topic of safety, I thought that a little fun needed to be injected into the conversation. Because isn’t having fun with our dogs the best part of being a pet parent? I always enjoyed myself with my dogs in the autumn season because I took advantage of the cooler temperatures. I felt like they had more energy to do more activities when the sun wasn’t blazing down upon them.
