    A Kitten for Christmas
    Hey there, puppy lovers - I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your Moms and Dads. In the spirit of the season, I had planned on putting my snarkey contempt aside to tell you about all the new toys Mom got me. But it seemed like there are more important things at paw since we had to say goodbye to one of my favorite cranky companions, Orphan, over our holiday vacation. Fourteen years ago, Great Grandma said goodbye to Sammy and Jasper, two brothers that came into her...
  2. Terrible Chews: Teething

    One of the biggest challenges when raising a puppy is dealing with all of the chewing they do in the teething stage. You may think it’s hard but consider your puppy’s perspective!

  6. “Four on the Floor” – Positive Reinforcement Training for Jumping Up

    When trying to stop dogs from jumping up, most people try to correct the behavior by using punishment. With positive reinforcement, however, you want to focus on what you want your dog to do rather than what you want them not to do.

    Managing Your Dog's Separation Anxiety
    After I got adopted, I loved being around my new family so much that I hated when they left me. When I would get left alone, I would get nervous and would do start doing bad things. I would sometimes chew on stuff I knew I wasn’t suppose to, dig & scratch at doors, windows and carpet, whine and bark... a lot and even have an accident or two around the house.

    Is Your Elderly Dog Losing His Hearing? Tips for Hearing Loss in Older Pets
    Every morning our dog anxiously awaits me letting him outside for his potty break. I usually have enough time to get dressed and then head back to the door to find him waiting to be let back in.
