Benefits of Exercise

15 minutes a day, every day, keeps the vet away!

Keep Calm

While I was look around the web at various pet forums and blogs I found a considerable amount of people who thought that putting your pet dog in the back yard for half an hour in the morning and when you return from work in the evening was enough to keep their pet happy and healthy. After a bit more digging I found that these people were also the people who said that they needed help stopping their dog from barking, digging and escaping. So I knew that I needed to clear this matter up. Dogs need to be walked, it’s not in their nature to sit around the house all day especially not when they are young. This article will address the risks of little or no exercise for dogs and also the benefits of regular exercise.

First off I’d just like to mention some of the risks of…

Strange Saturday: A Spaniel with Hands

Winter Weather Warnings

Now that it has just snowed here in VA and MD, be safe out in the snow!

Your Doggy Dilemmas

Man walking dog in snowWith the return of the snow comes a warning from Animal Charities to protect our dogs from the dangers of rock salt and anti-freeze.

With the snow upon us once again roads are being regularly gritted which is good for motorists but not so great for our dogs, or cats, as hundreds of pets are becoming seriously ill and in some cases dying because of the rock salt and antifreeze being used.

Animal charities say the public should take extra care when using anti-freeze and mop up any spillages. Pet owners were also advised to clean animals’ paws if they have been outside or walking over gritted roads by washing their paws down in clean water once home and also to clip the fur to keep it short.

The danger comes when dogs and cats who have walked through the substances left by gritters trying to clear roads and car drivers…

Boundary Training for Safety

Very important training that gets overlooked sometimes. Dog walking/running in heavily suburban areas is sometimes an exercise in “which house has an electric fence and which doesn’t?”


JJ's boundary is the front door

Wouldn’t it be nice to be 100% confident that your dog will stay in your yard even without a fence or leash (ok, 95%)? Is there a room in your house your dog must remain out of, such as baby’s room, your formal dining room, or your business office? Are you frustrated with your dog trampling your flowers in the garden you worked so hard on?

There are many ways to contain or control a dog including fences (visible or electronic), chains or tie-outs, pens, leashes, gates, etc. However, none are fool-proof and none truly provide your dog with freedom and a happy life, nor do they teach them anything, only contain them.

Boundary training is an easy and much more reliable alternative. It involves teaching your dog where a boundary line is and that he is not allowed to cross that line, EVER. It’s not as hard as it…
