Dogs are notorious chewers. They’ll chew on raw hide, tough rubber toys, shoes, and pretty much anything they think is up for grabs that they can get their mouth on. Unfortunately, they are also known to chew on themselves! There are a lot of reasons dogs might chew on themselves, but whatever the case may be, it’s a behavior you will definitely want to stop. Excessive chewing can lead to skin infections, reduced mobility (if they are chewing on their paws), poor hygiene and a bad smelling pup. Luckily you have a lot of options when it comes to how to change the behavior and fix the problem.
When it comes to service and therapy dogs, one of the biggest challenges isn’t dealing with your ailment. Instead, it’s navigating life in a world full of people that don’t know (or worse, THINK they know) everything about these animals and their relationship with you. If you’re considering getting a service or therapy dog, you may already be aware of some of these issues.
There are a lot of articles online that give advice about traveling with your dog. It’s not too hard to find these stories and for the most part, the same themes are addressed. How to plan a trip with your pet. The best places to go on vacation with your pet. What to bring with you when you travel with a pet. No doubt you’ve likely read several of such articles online already. But there is one other aspect of traveling with a dog that most websites don’t address: Dealing with all the other humans you’ll come across on your travels. In fact, this is one of the most important things to consider.
We may be in the heart of winter but, in case you hadn’t noticed, seasons tend to change, and
it won’t be long before we’re in the thick of oppressive Summer heat and humidity. We wrote
another post about how to keep your dog warm, but what do you do in the Summer, when all
of the sudden the tables are turned? Unlike Winter, where some places are hit harder than
others, pretty much everywhere across the country gets hot enough to be concerned about
your dog’s wellbeing. So, what are the right (and wrong) things to do to make sure your friend
stays comfortable, healthy, and safe?
There are a lot of options when it comes to training a dog but today, many people are choosing to take on the responsibility themselves. First, it’s so much cheaper than hiring a personal dog trainer. Some owners are also wary of trainers unless they’ve been personally recommended by a trusted source. Perhaps most importantly, it can be an important part of the bonding experience for you and your new little friend.
