With the current weather conditions of scattered rain clouds it can be a bit difficult to maintain style while avoiding puddles. Ponchos are a solution to the wet dog look and keep fur babies in style during any storm.

Dental Care 101

April 2nd, 2015 at 1:52 pm

Canine dental hygiene is very important in the health of your dog and proper dental care for a dog can combat bad breath, plaque and gum disease which affects your dogs’ overall health. In order to keep a healthy mouth you must brush your dogs’ teeth once a day but sometimes we may not have the time to sit and scrub every tooth or as new owners might not even know where to begin.

All the items you need to keep your pup healthy.

All the items you need to keep your pup’s teeth healthy.

When brushing your dogs’ teeth it is important to have the proper tools for the job. Start off with the best toothpaste, for us there are many formulas to choose from but in the dog world having pet specific toothpaste with a nice flavor will do the trick. Do not use human toothpaste because dogs tend to swallow a lot of the paste during brushing and human toothpaste will upset their stomach. After choosing the toothpaste it is time to find the perfect toothbrush and there are a few that are best for certain breeds. In our video we go over the benefits of the different toothbrushes and how they work for dogs.

Once you have the tools for cleaning it is important to have your dog comfortable with fingers in the mouth so they don’t get startled and bite on your hand. For beginners, it is best to first rub their teeth with peanut butter or something sweet so they associate brushing as a positive thing. You want to do this several days in a row and follow up with treats. When your dog is comfortable with fingers entering the mouth now introduce the brush with toothpaste by first letting your dog lick the brush to get use to the texture and gently rub the teeth and gums. Again do this several days in a row with treats and praise.

When your dog is comfortable with the toothbrush against the tooth, you can start brushing regularly. First gently hold back your dogs’ lip and start brushing at a slight angle to the gumline, brushing a few teeth at a time. Brush the outside of the teeth, gently moving back and forth, be sure to speak to your dog in a soothing tone and always follow up with a treat. Over time you can lengthen the session to gradually be able to clean all teeth in one sitting. Be sure to watch our video for a live demonstration of how to clean your dogs’ teeth and more detail over all the products available to you.

Rain, Rain, Go Away..

March 26th, 2015 at 2:48 pm

Unfortunately we can’t stop the rainy weather to take our dogs out for a brief walk, but we can prepare for it. It can be such a chore to prepare ourselves for the aftermath of clean up when taking our pups for a walk in wet weather. Instead of lugging the hose, grabbing the mat, or gathering the towels there are other easier methods to clean our pups paws. My favorite is the Paw Wash, with a simple design and easy usage it can be perfect for those muddy days. Here is a video demonstrating how easy it is to use. If the weather is a bit more cold, or extremely hot there are also waterproof boots available that slip on each paw and stay securely wrapped on their feet. With the Paws Natural Boots there is no hard padding  so your pup can feel the ground he is walking on, the boot is more of like a protective rubber slip over the paw. It’s great for keeping itchy lawn chemicals off your pup and works with snow or hot pavement. There is always the option of cute and fashionable doggy shoes. It protect against dirt and harsh weather while keeping your pup stylish with any outfit they decide to show off. So with all the options available for protecting our pups paws in the ever changing weather, it doesn’t seem to be a challenge for that walk in the rain.

Top Dog Toys for Naughty or Nice Dogs

December 12th, 2014 at 10:51 am

Finally—the holidays are here! (Ugh, don’t remind us. We still haven’t gotten all our shopping done!) By now you probably have a good idea which list your dog made this year.

What list, you ask? C’mon, you know what list. (Don’t make us sing it.)

No matter if she’s been naughty or nice, it’s time to find out what dog toys you’re getting your fur baby this holiday. We’ve picked out the paws-down best dog toys that your dog will just love unwrapping—or the best toys to encourage her to be better next year!

Dog and Puppy Toys for Nice Dogs

Nothing helps promote good behavior than positive reinforcement, right? If your fur baby was well-behaved this year, she deserves something nice to make sure she keeps up the good work. Show your dog she’s the reason for your season with these delightful dog toys for good pups!

Did Somebody Say ‘Steak?’

Steak Dog Toy

Okay, so it’s not exactly a seafood dinner. But what dog can say ‘no’ to a big, fat steak? Your fur baby will love chowing down on this hot-off-the-grill T-Bone Steak Plush Pet Toy. Because let’s face it—bones are so yesterday. This choice-cut toy is the best way to give your pup a nice treat without making a big mess.

Dog Save the (Beauty) Queen

Newman Best in Show Toy Set

If your dog’s been an absolute angel this year, you need a gift that speaks her language. This Oscar Newman Best in Show Toy Set does exactly that, providing your doggy diva with all the essential accessories she needs to feel like a princess. From the plush hairbrush to the teeny-tiny blow dryer, she’ll love getting primped while squeaking these durable dog toys.

“Standing Outside with Your Mouth Open Wide…”

Snowflake Rope Dog Toy

Catching snowflakes is great fun, but it only lasts so long. As soon as the flakes hit your tongue, it melts—that’s it; party’s over. But you can make the fun last with a Snowflake Rope Dog Toy! Unlike actual snowflakes, these tough dog toys will bring your dog plenty of winter merriment all season long. Toss, tug, and pull to your dog’s delight, without that melt-in-your-mouth quality.

 

Dog Toys for Naughty Dogs

We know, we know—she’s still your little fur baby, even if she’s been a bad girl. But choosing the right dog toys can send her the message: “You’d better shape up next year, or else!” Here are our top picks for dogs who have been naughty:

Chew on This!

Tory Bark Shoe Toy

Chewed-up furniture? Oh, no—not in your house. That’s a one-way ticket to the Naughty List (at least until next year). But if your dog’s gonna chew, she can at least chew on something other than the ottoman.

Maybe this Tory Bark Shoe Toy will take some of the heat off your home décor. Made from cute quilted material, it looks just like the real thing. You’ll definitely want to grab a pair! (Who buys a single shoe? That would drive us crazy.)

Puppy Punishment

Peekaboo Grand Bow House

You know what they say: Bad dogs get sent to the doghouse. So the next time your bad fur baby deserves a time-out, why not put her in an actual doghouse? This Peekaboo Grand Bow House by Louisdog is probably more than your naughty dog deserves, but c’mon—it is the holidays.

Santa’s Little Helper

Canvas Gnome Dog Toy

We know gnomes aren’t elves, but your dog won’t know the difference! This Recycled Canvas Gnome Dog Toy, and his… stern… expression, will be a subtle reminder for your fur baby that Santa’s always watching.

With these gifts, your dog will definitely know which list she’s on this year. If all goes according to plan, your nice dog will stay on her best behavior, while your naughty dog will change her ways. Then again, you’ll probably end up getting her presents anyway—who can deny that cute face??
