During a recent discussion about wanting to get a second dog as a companion for our puppy, acquired from the humane society after losing an elderly dog over a year ago, someone commented that one was enough. Other people who own multiple dogs countered that comment.
Puppies are adorable and a welcome addition to any home with caring, responsible owners. One behavior that is NOT so adorable, however, is the inevitable “pee and poo” accidents on your floor before your pup is housebroken. It’s essential for puppies to learn that elimination just anywhere they choose inside the house is not acceptable to you.
My mom recently placed an order for some dog treats from PetSolutions. I told her some of my favorites based on what my dog had tried. So, she ordered some of the Beef Woof Stix and a bag of the Salmon Jerky.
Many times, it is helpful to potty train your puppy using puppy wee wee pads. Some reasons include: your puppy is too small to go outside immediately, it is extremely cold to start housebreaking your puppy outside, or you have decided to use wee pads with your puppy for his lifetime. Whatever your reason, there are some great puppy wee wee pads that can help train your pup!
Obedience training is available for puppies and adult dogs, but the question is, will they choose to obey or not? A secondary question is, do puppies and dogs have obedience problems, or behavioral problems?
Choosing the best chew toys, of course, depends on your dog’s breed and size, as well as its chewing behavior. Kong and Nylabone dog toys are among the most recognized brands, and they offer a wide variety of chew toys for all sizes and breeds of dogs.
As most any dog owner knows, our canine companions love to chew…well, just about anything! Unfortunately, they often chew things that they are not supposed to chew–like shoes, cords and wires, rugs, or anything you drop on the floor.
If you have ever stood at the doorway of your house, flapping your arms, whistling, yelling, or waving dog treats in the air, you know how vital a skill it is for dogs to learn to come when called. It is an important skill, both for your dog’s safety and for those around it.

Today, we will discuss how to help your dog survive thunderstorms, and other loud noises!
