As responsible pet parents, we understand that a complete and balanced diet is critical to our dog’s vitality and longevity. In many cases, dog food may fall short on providing the necessary nutrients for dogs to thrive, leading pet parents to turn to supplements for their dogs.

FetchFuel™ gives dogs the highest quality nutrition and delivers it in a convenient and delicious way.

In the spirit of the holidays, and in remembrance of Smoki, we have a new giveaway for all of our cat friends! We already know how much our Baylie loves her Zuke’s, but we found out that Smoki was just as much a fan of her Zuke’s G-Zees Cat Treats.
Welcome to another great group Kurgo giveaway—with a fun photo twist! We’re joining some super blogs to help prepare one lucky dog for holiday travel with a giveaway of a Kurgo dog harness.

It’s typical behavior for dog-lovers to walk up to a dog we have never met to give him a pat on the head. However, this type behavior can invoke fear and provoke the flight or fight mechanism in a dog. It’s also typical behavior for children to be drawn to an unfamiliar dog. They want to pet every pup they see as if it were a fluffy teddy bear.
Even thought Baylie has never shown any signs of aggression towards children or adults, I keep a watchful eye, nonetheless. She’s a large-breed dog and even playfully jumping on someone can cause injury. With so many dog bites in the news of late, we all have to be on our guard. Even if you have the friendliest dog on the planet, a dangerous situation can develop in mere seconds. Although they mean no harm, children can do a number of things to trigger aggression in dogs.
