Dogs & Their People - A Book Review

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Dogs & Their People is a delightful book from Bark & Co that has truly captured the spirit of modern day dog ownership and the amazing bond between people and pets.

The book is filled with inspiring community-sourced photography that are fun to view and resplendent with stories that are even more entertaining to read. Some are from celebrity dogs and others are just from people who love their pets (and frankly, we’re far more inspired by the “regular” folk who go out of their way to make sure their dogs are cared for in some truly creative ways.

This is a coffee table book for sure - you’ll want to leave it out to inspire guests and encourage them to tell you about their dogs. It’s filled with images of dogs, fun quips that every animal lover will relate to, and plenty of humor.

You’ve likely all heard the arguments for giving your dogs bone broth, the nutrient-dense stock liquid made from simmering raw or cooked bones at low heat over long periods of time. It’s a popular supplement not only for pets, but for humans as well.

Bone broth is rich in nutrients and carnivores (and omnivores) love the taste.

There are a number of recorded benefits to giving this to your pets. It can help alleviate pain associated with inflammation (*like arthritis), digestive disorders (like leaky gut and food allergies) and bone broth also supports good joint health. In fact, it tops the list of natural remedies for soothing stiff joints.

So, we know that there are tons of benefits to giving your pet bone broth, but honestly, who has the time to make batches of bone broth every week? We found some options for those who don't want to cook.

The History of Rabies on #WorldRabiesDay

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

World Rabies Day is an annual event held on Sept 28. This day marks the anniversary of the death of Louis Pasteur, the bacteriologist who developed the first rabies vaccine (and probably stopped a  Zombie Apocalypse).

Just kidding. Although we do think he contributed to such an event) we do know he saved millions of lives around the world. To celebrate World Rabies Day and help raise awareness of this disease, we wanted to cover a bit of the history of rabies.

The sordid story starts back in the 1800s when Pasteur was studying the fatal disease. He was subject to ridicule for many of his theories, especially since he was in the habit of keeping rabies-infected, mad dogs in his tiny kennels around his crowded laboratory.

Pasteur suspected he had a cure for this disease that was transmitted through the bite or saliva of an infected animal, but he hadn’t tested it yet on a human - until one fateful morning when the mother of a 9-year-old boy named Joseph Meister was bitten 14 times by a rabid dog.

Walk Your Dog Week is Oct 1-7

Oct 1-7 is “National Walk Your Dog Week” and I have to say, it’s just about the perfect time of year for us to get outside.

As you know, Arizonans are just now emerging from their cocoon of heat and entering the time of year that justifies our unbearable summers. This makes Walk your dog week sort of an annual celebration for us.

Exercise is important - for you and your dogs. "Over 55% of Americans say their dogs get less than 45 minutes of physical exercise a day," according to Rover.com’s latest survey. This is not nearly enough and it quite frankly explains the behavioral problems so many people experience.

Dogs need to run, play, walk and interact to have a fulfilling life. Take away that physical activity and you’re left with a depressed dog with a lot of time and unreleased energy on his paws.

Safe Natural Chews for Dogs (That Aren't Rawhide)

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

We have three very big dogs who love to chew. Yet for years, it felt like we were struggling to find safe chews to give them. Either the chews were not strong enough and only lasted a few seconds, or the didn’t do what we thought they would do, or the dogs just wolfed them down in a solid piece creating a huge potential for veterinarian bills and a giant health risk.

However, thanks to manufacturers who constantly innovate, we now have hundreds of choices. Today, we're talking about one that's not even on the market yet and others that we know and love.

Remember, it's very important to supervise your pet while giving any type of treat or chew and you need to be sure to purchase size-appropriate chews. If you're unsure, ask your veterinarian.

These are a few of the newest favorites...
