What Is Your Dog Telling You?

This Monday is Earth Day; an event initially started in 1970 by a U.S. senator to be a teaching event at schools and colleges, occurring every ten years. In 1990, it became an annual event and is now celebrated around the world. The senator’s intention was for people to educate each other about the environment, but he seems to have forgotten to include the best teacher of all. People always ask me how I learned so much about dogs, and I tell them that my first teacher was my grandfather. But he had a teacher before he taught me, and

Can You Afford A Dog?

My wife had just brought our 8-month-old puppy into the vet to be neutered. She calls me about ten minutes later: “It’s going to be twice what we budgeted.” “Why?” “He only has one testicle. The other one didn’t descend.” “So he only has half the testicles and the neuter costs double?” The difference in cost was because the vet had to root around Sam’s abdomen to look for the other testicle. I understood, but it caused some budgetary rearranging that month. I share this story to illustrate the costs that a lot of prospective dog owners fail to take

How To Meet A Timid Dog & Gain Their Trust

When meeting any new dog, dog owners and pack leaders should approach with caution. Even if you are a dog expert, it is still best to take things slow and come at new dogs with a gentle, easy-going personality. You never know what they are going through or have been through, so it is always best to move with the utmost care. In addition, dogs often show aggression when they are afraid. While it might be tempting to know how to work with an aggressive dog and gain their trust, this is not always possible if there is genuine fear

Ticking Time Bombs: The Diseases Carried By Ticks

Odds are good that you will encounter a tick in the near future. And your dog has even better odds. After all, they spend a good portion of every day outside! Dogs are also prone to “off the trail” exploration. Since humans aren’t as hairy as other mammals, we stand a better chance of noticing when a tick attaches. Dogs, on the other hand, are furry, and a tick can take up residence without the dog or you noticing. Unfortunately, people sometimes find that their dog has an attached tick only when symptoms of a tick-borne disease appear. By then,

Do Dogs Get Jealous?

For decades it has been assumed that humans are the only species that experience jealousy and the unique emotion of unfairness, however, a recent study done at the University of California San Diego claims to show that dogs do feel jealousy. The study was performed by having humans engage with three different objects in front of their dogs: a book, a plastic jack-o-lantern, and a realistic looking stuffed dog that moved and made sound. The results show that, when the human was paying attention to the fake dog, their dogs were much more engaged and more likely to show behaviors
