Former Ring Bone Chewer - Dogs and Rawhides

Posted by Kelly Jansens on

Bodie loved the ringbone style rawhides. It would take him three to four days to work his way through one. He was a chewer and it was his favorite treat. I never knew they may not be a healthy or safe treat for a dog until three years a go or so, when I read more reports about them and the risk hazards. Bodie was always supervised when he had his ringbone and never showed any negative signs from chewing rawhides. He loved the ring bone shaped ones as he paraded it through the house and tossed it in the...

I Wonder What Name My Dog Gave Me

Posted by Kelly Jansens on

I wonder what name my dog gave me….was it Mama, my person, sweet-ma, food lady… did you ever wonder? They are such smart creatures. Obviously, they know their people by sent and stature. They have feelings and know words too. What about your dog’s name? Did you name them? Where they adopted with a given name? A name is really important; after all you will be calling that name thousands of times over your dog’s life. *** Naming your Pet…many dog trainers suggest giving dogs names that are more in keeping with their status, as well as names that are easily spoken (by humans) and...

Bodie was never scared of any loud noises the first four years of his life. I am not really sure how it started. Maybe, as he got older, he was more sensitive...

Keep Fido Cool - When It's Too Hot to Walk.

Posted by Kelly Jansens on

When is it too hot to walk your dog? I have been doing some on-line reading and the consensus seems to be around 70 degrees. I always walked Bodie early morning and at dusk at night. Never really long walks unless it has cooled down considerably. His favorite adventure was to go swimming, which is great exercise and cools down your pup too. Another way to check if it is too hot for your dog, is to do the five-second hand test on pavement. Put your hand palm faced up and if you can keep the back of your hand...

Ice Cream for Dogs?!

Posted by Kelly Jansens on

So, what is the big deal if I let my dog have some ice cream as I am enjoying some?! A good percentage of dogs are not lactose intolerant, however there is a lot of sugar in fat in ice cream, with no nutritional value. A dog’s digestion is different from humans as well. I have given Bodie-dog small amounts of ice cream in the past. A cup of soft serve vanilla ice scream seemed to be okay on his system, however he would only get this treat maybe two or three times a year.  Some other things to consider…as...
