With an icy winter day here predicted in Cincinnati, I have a winter weather safety tip for your dog. In snowy weather, please remember salt and chemicals are unhealthy for your pet and should be wiped off as soon as he/she comes inside. Also, be aware of ice balls that can form between the pads and toes if your dog has a lot of fur on his/her feet which can add to the problem of retaining chemicals.
Parents, please remember, you have an important role to play in helping your children and your dog succeed…including preventing dog bites.
When dog caregivers think about socialization and exercise, often two words come to their mind – dog park. Not only are those places enclosed areas for dogs to run and play, they are places where people meet other people who share a love for their pets.
I can’t believe Thanksgiving is around the corner. It is my favorite holiday because it is the one time of year when my whole family is together.
July 4 is just around the corner. It is one of my favorite holidays…but definitely not one of Sam’s (our family dog). Fireworks can be an awfully scary experience for our furry friends. I thought I’d take a moment to remind you of a few basic precautions to take to ensure a safe holiday for everyone.
We’re coming up on one of my favorite holidays. That’d be the night all of the little ghosts and goblins and football players and television characters show up at our door in search of good treats.
But when those creatures show up at my parents’ house, on the other side of the door is 40 pounds of love
