They asked 37 dog owners to record their pups attempting to communicate. 242 videos were shot, capturing a total of…continue reading →

Brain Scans May Eventually Help Determine Which Dogs Would Make The Best Bomb-Sniffers

Advertisement It takes a special dog to be a focused, astute bomb-sniffer, and it should come as no surprise that pouring care and training into detection-dogs-in-the-making is a huge investment of both time and money. Despite being groomed since puppyhood, some pooches simply don’t possess the characteristics to be effective bomb-sniffing dogs, or to do so happily. So, what if there was a test that could determine whether a dog would make an ideal candidate before the investment was made? You may have heard stories of pups who’ve (adorably) “failed” out of training, and…continue reading →

The Best Way To Keep Your Dog’s Teeth Clean In Between Brushings

Advertisement Brushing your dog’s teeth is the best way to keep them clean, but for some of us, this is easier said than done.

If You’re Not Feeding Your Dog A Raw Diet, They Are Likely Missing This Vital Nutrient

If You’re Not Feeding Your Dog A Raw Diet, They Are Likely Missing This Vital Nutrient

Commercial dog food companies would like you to believe that their food is nutritionally complete and provides everything your dog needs to be healthy. Sadly, the bar for a “nutritionally complete” meal for dogs is appallingly low. Sure, it will keep your dog alive, but it’s missing a variety of nutrients that are killed during the high heat processing and are, at best, sprayed down with synthetic vitamins at the end of the manufacturing process. If you aren’t feeding your dog a raw diet (or if you are, but don’t include entrails in…continue reading →

The Top 6 Ways To Give Your Pup The Probiotics He Needs

Approximately 70% of a dog’s immune cells reside in the gut, so it is extremely important to their overall wellness that digestive health is maintained.
