If you’re getting a new puppy, one of the first items you should be purchasing is a dog crate, his/her own little safe haven where she can feel secure. When thinking about dog crates, think of them as an enclosure rather than a cage, that will help you put the right perspective to them as you are searching for the right one.
Bringing home a newly adopted dog is a pretty exciting event for most families. But there is more to a successful homecoming than just walking through the front door. Consider how overwhelming it might be for your new best friend…the new faces, the new smells, the new sounds, the new house, in fact, the new everything!
Once you get your new dog home, the whole situation could also be a little overwhelming for you too.
Everyone talks about dogs being “man’s best friend”, but your dog needs a best friend too, and that best friend should be you!
Your dog is, or can be, a wonderful companion, who will give you unconditional love, all you need to do is to build and strengthen your relationship and develop a close bond.
For whatever reason, many dogs are not only timid, but nervous meeting new people, in new circumstances or situations, or around other dogs. They are fearful… Most of us can relate to that on some level or another, we know how it feels to be afraid.
Just like their humans, dogs can become overweight…again, just like humans, the weight creeps up before you even recognize that it’s happening. Before you know it, your dog is fat! Wat are you going to do about it?
Hi Gayle! My cute little puppy growled and mouthed me the last two times I’ve tried to dry her feet. I think she wants to get the towel from me, but I’m not sure. What do you think?
