Why Does My Dog Like To Pee On Objects?

We all know that cats are the most likely culprits of indoor tinkling. It’s usually male cats trying to lay claim to their kingdom and ruining our couches in the process. We once had a male indoor cat who took up spraying the sofa, and he was quickly transitioned to an indoor/outdoor cat so he could spend the majority of his days outside taking out his territorial aggressions on the rosebushes rather than my mother’s prized couch. And while cats are notorious for sometimes peeing in the house, our dogs aren’t entirely innocent on that front either. Our pups are

Why Do Dogs Like To Rub Themselves On The Ground?

Dogs love to roll around on their backs. We’ve all seen them throw themselves on the grass or the carpet and going bananas. Normally we assume this is either an itch relief technique or some kind of scent marking thing, but there is actually a number of explanations for their behavior.  The most reasonable explanation for this behavior is that they’re trying to relieve an itch. But if your dog seems to be constantly itchy then it could be a sign that there is something wrong with them medically. Constant itching can be a sign of dry skin, allergies, or

School Surprises Little Girl By Including Her Service Dog In The Yearbook

Dogs are amazing companions. But for some people, these loveable pooches are more than just best friends, they’re service dogs with an important job to do.

Pug Credited With Helping Two Sisters Realize They Had Breast Cancer

Dogs are often used for medical purposes such as sniffing out cancerous tumors. They are good at it too, mainly because a dog’s nose is incredibly powerful. While these tumor sniffing dogs are professionally trained, sometimes you’ll hear stories from people sharing how their dog at home somehow managed to alert them to a tumor. I remember once watching a TV program where a woman recounted her story of how her dog kept sniffing under her armpit only to find out later at the doctor’s that she had lymphoma. These stories of regular dogs becoming medical heroes can happen, but

Woman’s Emotional Support Dog Comforts Her When She’s Having An Anxiety Attack

There are many benefits to having a furry companion by your side. But for some people, the need for a pet is crucial for their mental health.  While we live in a more liberal and accepting society, there is still a lot of stigma surrounding mental health. Not everyone understands the everyday struggles of those who have debilitating illnesses that essentially invisible to the world. It can be quite isolating to suffer from depression or severe anxiety when you seem “fine” to the outside world. That is where emotional support animals can be a very valuable aid to those who are

Why Do Dogs Bury Things In The Ground?

We all know that our dogs love a good bone. The love affair between dogs and their bones has even been immortalized in the English language thanks to the phrase, “like a dog with a bone.” We usually say that when someone can’t seem to let something go. And it’s the perfect simile too because there nothing tougher than trying to get a bone away from a dog. My friend almost lost a finger in the park when her Jack Russell found an abandoned KFC bucket full of chicken bones in the bushes. When she tried to get them away

2020 has not been an easy year – mainly because of the COVID-19 pandemic that has been making the global rounds. We started the year in quarantine, we got out of lockdown for a little bit, and now countries are beginning to see their numbers rise again which means lockdown part two. It’s been nothing short of surreal. But through it all we’re all trying to find our ways of coping. Some of us have thrown ourselves into our passion projects, while others of us have gotten into gardening or taken up home improvement projects. There are some of us

Dog Drags A Freezing Cat From The Snow Into His House To Warm Up

Dogs are such kind animals. They show a deep sense of compassion towards all their fellow creatures and it’s something that we could definitely all learn from in terms of kindness. Dogs are also known to get along with cats, despite the myth that the two animals are sworn enemies. My dog was a huge fan of the family’s cats. And she definitely would do anything she could to keep them safe. But it wasn’t just the cats that she cared for. Our dog’s kindness extended to any animal in need that she encountered – whether it was baby birds falling

Why Does My Dog Lick The Air?

Most animals clean themselves by licking their fur coats. This includes our dogs. I’m sure many of us dog owners have spent more time than we’d like to admit just observing our pups partake in their lengthy bathing rituals. They can sometimes get quite intense with their bath times, but sometimes our dogs can get downright weird. Have you ever stopped to notice that your dog isn’t necessarily cleaning themselves anymore, but they’re just licking air? This action, while seemingly bizarre is quite normal behavior. However, if it goes on for no apparent reason it can turn into a compulsive
