The other week I was walking Fen and something happened that made me sad, but at the same time totally reaffirmed my commitment to train my dog with positive based methods. I (so far) haven't written about this in depth, but both of my dogs, to one degree or another, are leash reactive. Kit walked awesomely on a leash until he was unfortunately attacked by a loose dog while I was walking him. After that he became reactive towards other dogs, mainly to large (strangely enough) brown dogs similar to the one who attacked him. ...continue reading "The Power of Positivity"
Yesterday, August 1st, we celebrated little Fen's 2nd birthday! Aw they sure do grow up fast.
It was a sweltering 90*f with high humidity so our planned trip to the park was out, but I think Fenrir had a fun day nonetheless. He spent most of the day playing and snuggling with his big brother Kit. Later in the day, once it started to cool off a bit, I made homemade pizza and the dogs had pupcake and doggy ice cream. ...continue reading "Happy 2nd Birthday Fenrir!"
Usually when we get items in our pet subscription boxes, we briefly tell you all about the individual items in our box reviews but never go into much detail. This week I thought it might be fun to take a closer look at one of the items we received in our July Pooch Perks box. When we wrote our Pooch Perks review we showed you the Pet Cakes frozen treat, but because we hadn't actually made the treat we couldn't really review it. Last week we had a couple of really hot days which I figured would be perfect for letting the dogs try a frozen treat. ...continue reading "Pet Cakes Frozen Treats for Dogs Review"

Or, more accurately, when one dog gets gastroenteritis in a multi dog household...
I apologize for being a bit MIA last week. I usually try to post at least twice a week, but sometimes life gets in the way. Last week was a bit crazy. I posted on our Facebook page about Fen not feeling well, and am finally getting around to updating everyone on what was going on. ...continue reading "When it Rains…"
Happy May! I hope everyone is enjoying the nice spring weather. The temperatures here have been a bit bipolar lately. On Saturday we had sunny 80*+f weather and on Sunday it dropped back down to just below 60*f. Not that I'm complaining! Saturday's hotter weather came complete with a nice cool breeze and, since I'm more of a fan of cooler weather, I was happy about Sunday's cool down. Except for when it rains, the windows in our apartment have been open pretty much 24/7 for the past week or so. I'm trying to enjoy as much window time as possible, as I'm sure it won't be long now before it gets hot enough to put our ACs in. ...continue reading "Of Dogs and Open Windows"
