How Does Dog Insurance Work?

Why Dog Insurance No matter how careful you are with your dog, accidents happen — and sometimes they’re costly ones. Just ask Les Kaciban of Ashburn, Virginia, whose Komondor puppy Charlie swallowed a corn cob and required emergency surgery to remove it. The bill came to a whopping $3,600. It was a good thing that Kaciban had pet health insurance. His out-of-pocket expenses came to an easier-to-swallow $1,000, while his insurance policy covered the difference. Pet owners today face higher veterinary costs than ever. The American Pet Product Association, a trade organization based in Greenwich, Connecticut, reports that because technological

But it doesn’t have to be a daunting

Puppies Growing Up in Nature and in Our Home

There’s an old saying, “Like father, like son” — and, I suppose, “Like mother, like daughter.” This seems to imply that everyone is born to be the way they’re going to be and they’re going to be that way because of genetics. But how does a son really become like a father, or a daughter like a mother? They also say, “The acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree.” But that acorn still has to fall before it can grow, and the way it grows depends entirely on the circumstances it lands in. How Puppies Grow Up in Nature The
