Car Safety Tips For Dogs During Driving
Blog / 09/19/2014

Car Safety Tips For Dogs During Driving   My two dogs absolutely love taking car rides. However, quite often when we are out on the roads, we see other dog owners with their dogs in cars and some very unsafe practices. I want to highlight some of these. For example, we often see dogs in cars sticking their heads out the windows. The dogs obviously love doing this but there is a danger to this. Road debris can fly up and hurt the dog’s eyes. In fact, experts claim that when a car is traveling at speed, an impact with a small insect can cause considerable damage to a dog’s eyes. So don’t let your dog stick out its head out the window. You can roll down the window enough so that your dog can still enjoy the nice breeze but not down enough for it to stick its entire head out. Safety Tips For Dogs In Cars Video   Keep Dogs In Back Seats The other thing we see is dog owners allowing their dogs to sit in the front seats. Think about this, if you get into a car accident and the front airbags engage, there is a…

5 Steps to Remember in Raising Baby Rabbits   Raising baby rabbits is actually kind of hard as they are delicate. Lack of proper information would push a new owner to accidentally kill the them, even if he/she has taken care of adult bunnies before. If your doe happens to give birth to cute infants, then there are things that you need to remember so that you can effectively raise them. Follow these methods carefully. 1. Try to observe the doe with her infants. At the first few days, we must not do anything to then but observe. Unlike cats and dogs, bunny moms would just feed their infants once a day, and most of the time, they will be away from them. We can think that the doe have abandoned her litters but actually, she did not. It is just instinctive for the mothers not to be close to the nest of her infants as this method would keep predators away. So if it is ignoring them, then do not panic. So long as she feeds them once a day, they will be fine. 2. Ensure that they are placed indoors and away from the rain or extreme cold…

Older Senior Dogs Can Benefit Using Dog Litterboxes
Blog / 07/19/2014

Older Senior Dogs Can Benefit Using Dog Litterboxes   Dogs are in many ways just like us humans. They eventually become older just like people do and as senior dogs, they can lose a bit of mobility. When this happens, doing outside for walks may be a challenge. This is especially true during bad weather days with snow and rain. This is a fact that many dog owners forget especially while their pets are still active and energetic. But there will come a time while your pet will slow down quite a bit. This is when the use of dog litterboxes as part of dog toilet training while young will benefit puppies when they become older senior dogs. Rather than have to go outside for elimination, they can simply go to a designated place inside the house. An indoor dog toilet can come in the form of a dog litterbox specifically designed for canines these days. This location will be much closer to get to and of course more dry compared to an outdoor spot. It turns out that not only older seniors but dogs of any age who might have injuries or illnesses which also limit their mobility, can…

Blog / 07/18/2014

My Dog Doesn’t Come When I Call One of the most common complaints is “my dog doesn’t come when I call”. Training the recall is one of the funniest of all dog-training exercises because we do so much completely wrong! Let me explain. This is what we want to achieve: When we call our dog “here Bella” we want Bella to come sprinting as fast as she can to us. Now, in order to achieve this we must make “here Bella” the best command in the world. With the best result and rewards at the end! So here are some tips! Never call your dog if you are thinking of telling her off! You can undo months and months of hard work training your dog to come by telling her off just once. Suddenly coming when you call could be a really bed move! 9 times out of 10 make sure that your dog has a good experience when she comes if you call you. On the 10th recall if you need to put your dog on a leash then do so. When you call your dog to you think of coming as more of a “check in with me”…
