You’re on a lunch break from your office cubicle job, you go outside for a walk, and then stop to pet every dog you see. You might even share part of your tuna sandwich with the cat winding itself around your ankles. If that’s you, then maybe it’s time to re-think...

Dog Booties

No matter your dog's breed, tender paws need protection from snow, ice, road salt, and other winter chemicals. Plus, most chemical ice melters are toxic to our furry friends. When shopping for dog boots, look for textured and waterproofed soles. These will provide...

Choosing the Right Harness for Your Bulldog

Unless you have a dog who behaves perfectly on a leash, you'll benefit from switching to a harness. I've yet to see a perfectly behaved dog. It's a lot like having a super-strong toddler or an attitude-filled teenager. You're arms and back will thank you for taking...
