    from All Things Dog Blog

    Friday September 19th, 2014 at 09:00 PM

    by Carrie Boyko, CEB Warrior I and II are great poses that work many muscles, while also challenging your balance. As you get comfortable with the balance, adding your toy-sized dog to your front leg increases the challenge, helping you get more out of your workout, all while you enjoy a nice cuddle. If the balance is coming hard for you, don't stress out over it. Try these tips: Making sure your back foot is turned out, also put emphasis on practicing balancing your weight between the front...

    Square_140_pby Carrie Boyko, CEB Buffer The gang and I have had quite an adventure RVing the Great Smokey Mountains National Park, visiting Washington, DC, and trekking home via other stops. We're learning a lot about our new travel method and finding it to be greener and more budget-savvy than we ever thought possible. I've posted some tips for those of you hoping to hit the Blue Ridge Parkway with your dogs to enjoy the Fall colors. Watch for more articles to come about our experiences. Now let's get...

  • Fido Helps With Forward Fold

    from All Things Dog Blog

    Saturday September 13th, 2014 at 07:00 AM

    by Carrie Boyko, CEB Forward Fold is not one of my favorite poses, but it IS very important to moving forward in your yoga workouts. Rather than making a complete fold your goal, I recommend using some of last week's #doga tips, adding a chair or the help of a larger dog, to ease yourself down over many days or weeks of practice. You may even try placing your hands on your knees after step 3 shown above. Since Forward Fold is one of those poses that may take a longer period of time for many...

    Thursday September 11th, 2014 at 07:00 AM

    by Carrie Boyko, CEB The All Things Dog Blog gang is on the road again, off to visit our boys in DC and Richmond. The RV is humming along I-75 as I write, and Oliver is napping peacefully after a walk in a cute little North Florida community. Meanwhile, Tanner opted for some quality time with his girl, choosing to hang with her at med school while we scout out Virginia and DC. Ahhh....choices are so nice. Maybe next trip we'll switch the boys up? Now let's get to today's Fido's Freebie...
  • Using Your Dog's Name in Training

    from All Things Dog Blog

    Monday September 8th, 2014 at 08:00 AM

    Square_140_kevin_dugganGuest post byKevin Duggan, CPDT-KA Used with permission, Kevin Duggan One of the very first things you do when you get a new dog is pick out a name. Sometimes the name is chosen due to one of the attributes of the dog, while other times it just something fun or easy to say. From then on out, that is what the dog is referred to as. Where Im going with this is, a dogs name can be used for so much more than just a name. A dogs name can also be used as a cue for the dog to look at you. To train...

    Square_140_photo_3by Carrie Boyko, CEB I always feel just a little bit better when I wrap up our annual gator safety class here at All Things Dog Blog. I'll sleep just a wee bit better knowing that you guys helped to get the word out about keeping our dogs safe when we're in areas where gators reside. Rafflecopter seems to be misbehaving a bit this afternoon, so my winner drawing is delayed. I know you are all eager to find out who gets to receive a package of treats and a gator toy for their dog.

  • Easing Your Downward Facing Dog

    from All Things Dog Blog

    Saturday September 6th, 2014 at 07:00 AM

    by Carrie Boyko, CEB Ya gotta love the name of this pose--Downward Facing Dog. For most of that love dogs, it often reminds us of the play bow our pups often offer us or a playmate when they wish to engage in a romp. Here's a little insight into the name; when you practice Downward Dog you'll soon find that you're more frisky and energetic also. The inversion (turning your head upside down) brings blood to your brain, awakening your mind and bringing energy along with it. Let's learn some...
