Dogs Coming To The Rescue Of Children

The Jordan family dog is a bona fide hero. Benjamin and Hope Jordan had recently relocated to Charleston, South Carolina when they hired 22 year-old Alexis Khan to sit for their 7 month-old son Finn. Khan had come up clean on a background check, but after about five months, the family noticed that their dog, Killian, was very defensive when the sitter would come over. Benjamin said, “He was very aggressive towards her and a few times we actually had to physically restrain our dog from going towards her.” The Jordan’s suspicions were raised and that’s when Hope suggested keeping

How To Stimulate Your Dog’s Mind

Stimulating your dog’s mind and challenging him to try new things is one of the keys to fulfillment. Finding ways to work with a dog’s instinctual nature can bring out the best in them.

Dogs Crying: What Does It Mean

At some point you may have looked down at your dog and noticed watery eyes. It’s easy to assume that the dog is crying, but those tears are actually caused by something other than emotions. We know that dogs can sense our emotions, and we know they are capable of grief, but can they cry real, emotional tears? Dogs are compassionate and sensitive animals. When we’re happy, there they are to wag their tails and share the joy. When we’re feeling blue, there they are to offer a warm cuddle and share the sadness. They are our friends, through and

Also note that some breeds, for example those with short legs, may not be well-suited for activites that involve going up and down steps or obstacles. Dogs need their daily exercise, and even things like it being too cold or hot outside or the days getting shorter shouldn’t get in the way. One of the most important parts of Cesar’s teachings is that you need to walk your dog every day, several times a day no matter what the weather is like.

Signs And Symptoms That Your Dog Is In Pain

When people are in pain, it’s pretty hard to miss most of the time. We complain about our aching back. We yell out because we’ve stepped on something pointy. We limp because it hurts to put pressure on a leg. We lay down in the middle of the day in complete silence and darkness because we have a migraine. Dogs, unfortunately, aren’t always quite so easy to read. First off, to start with the obvious, they can’t tell us if something hurts because of that whole not-talking thing. And while things like limping or whining every time they put pressure

Why Dogs Eat… And Eat… And Eat…

There’s an old cliché about dogs — they’ll eat everything you put in front of them, whether they’re hungry or not. There may be a grain of truth to it, but not all dogs are voracious eating machines. Some are perfectly content to snack from their bowl when they feel the urge and others will stop when they feel full, not going back for seconds at all. But there are certainly plenty of dogs to give some truth to the cliché. No matter how well fed they are, they will never turn down more, and it’s quite easy to imagine
