Dogs have always played an important role in our lives. Throughout history, they have played important roles - from occurring in plays as far back as The Odyssey by Virgil to mentions of them in the bible. It’s no surprise, then that quite a few superstitions have made their way into our lives. And what better time to read about them than during the most superstitious time of the year: Halloween.

Dogs Lead Us To New Worlds

The dog has been seen as a guide throughout history. Cultures around the world often associate dogs with the path to heaven, and Cerebrus, a ferocious three-headed dog was once thought to guard the gate to Hades. The Aztecs worshiped a dog-headed god known as Xolotl who also happened to guide wayward souls to the afterworld, and Egyptians dressed as Anubis when preparing the dead for burial.

Keeping Your Pets Teeth Clean (Without the Hassle) #SmoochUrPooch PDF Print E-mail

I try to be a good pet parent. I really do. There are a few things I don’t do on a regular basis, though, and one of those is brush my dogs teeth.

Let’s face it - my dogs not only outweigh me, they also outnumber me three to one.  Their teeth are a lot bigger than mine. They are superior in almost every way. Sticking my hand in their mouth to brush their teeth is not super appealing.

But dental care doesn’t have to be such a challenge. That’s why I rely on methods other than brushing- like water additives, gels and dental treats from TropiClean.

PetsGEEKly: GoGo Dog Pals for Prey-Driven Dogs PDF Print E-mail
Written by Stacy Mantle   
Friday, 10 October 2014 00:00

When we first saw the Go-Go Dog Pals remote control dog toy, we thought it might be just a simple remote control children’s car with a cute shell on top. Turns out, it’s a lot more than that… This is a super-charged, four-wheel-drive interactive dog toy that is bound to get any dog with a natural prey instinct on a fast-moving run through the yard.

The device is essentially a high-speed remote control vehicle with an armored shell in the design of a cat (we think it looks more like a skunk), a groundhog, or racoon. You can purchase new accessories to make the shell into any creature you prefer. Your dogs won’t care what color it is or how it looks - they only know that it runs away and it’s their job to catch it.

As you know, our dogs are not exactly hunters. They enjoy their lizard hunts and stalking the occasional bird, but they don’t enjoy killing wildlife (thank goodness!) and I wasn’t sure how they would react to this toy. But I found that once you engage that natural instinct, there are very few dogs who won’t chase after this toy.

Training Tips: 7 Symptoms of Digestive Upset PDF Print E-mail

I recently read an article on the subject of dogs who lick excessively and it made reference to the fact that one of the causes can be digestive troubles.

This is just one of many symptoms that owners are often unaware of which can indicate gastrointestinal problems. Such problems, if not treated, can ultimately lead to a dog becoming diabetic as well as other conditions.

Here is a list of symptoms you should be on the lookout for, take note of and consult your veterinarian:

Licking

If your dog is licking herself, the couch, the carpet, people or other items more than is normal, talk to your vet. It’s not “normal” to lick carpets & couches!
