    Square_140_big_guy_on_the_benchwby Carrie Boyko, CEB Oliver (in the middle) Joins the Big Dogs at the Parkfor a Group GreetingDear Michael, I have a toy poodle that is about 7 years old. She is prissy and fearful of bigger dogs. Our neighborhood is like dog central. Mostly larger dogs but a few small ones like Chihuahuas and a Boston Terrier, plus a few crosses or rescued mutts. When I walk Muffin she is always interested in visiting other small dogs. Shes not playful but she does sniff and sort of say hello in a doggy way....

Its working so well that I am building a deeper bond with Tanner and Oliver, while seeing benefits for my health which I know will be helpful going forward. Can you elaborate on these benefits based on your relationship with Nikki B. and her participation in your practice? JESS: Getting in touch with the...

    Square_140_pby Carrie Boyko, CEB This week we finally got around to publishing Patches' photobombs that occurred during our #SuperDogSunday video shoot. During our Twitter Party prior to the Super Bowl, I had promised to share these. There's a super short clip of Patches' mischief, along with a slightly longer video of my efforts to show off our sponsor's product during a Doga workout. If you need a good laugh, check out this 2 minute photobomb video. Now let's get to today's Fido's Freebie Friday....
  • Patches Photobombs #SuperDogSunday

    from All Things Dog Blog

    by Carrie Boyko, CEB When cats and dogs live together they sometimes egg each other on. Like today, Oliver let Patches know that she shouldn't be on a dog bed. He was quite indignant! But Patches does more than her share of dishing out the trouble-making. During our #SuperDogSunday event recently, she was insistent on stealing a Zuke's treat from the open pouch I had in our #doga photo shoot. The dogs and I were busy videotaping a short segment and she totally took over, pawing at the...

  • Putting Pep in Your Senior Dog's Step

    by Carrie Boyko, CEB Finding Your Senior's Inner Puppy If you're familiar with horses, you may know that your ride is likely to be more energetic on the way back to the barn than as you leave the barn. Unlike dogs, horses enjoy the thrill of knowing the end of the walk or ride is near. Horses love the barn for friends, food, family, and familiarity. Our dogs are quite the opposite. They need--actually thrive on--excitement, new and different experiences, and problems to solve. Unlike horses,...

    by Carrie Boyko, CEB Earlier this week All Things Dog Blog announced our newest feature--#SilverSlippers. As Tanner and Oliver begin to age (Hand over mouth; I did not say that!) I've begun to sneak in themed walks and variations that add fun and newness to our outings. The goal is to keep their minds working while their bodies may be slowing down a tad, most Tanner's. See our #SilverSlippers intro here and watch for the first installment soon, as well as giveaways too. Now let's get to...
  • #SilverSlippers: Inspire Your Dog Walks

    by Carrie Boyko, CEB I've been walking dogs for more years than I care to admit. They make good motivation and great company. Beyond that, though, I can't help but notice that as they age they need something different--a bit of a changing up--not only in pace but in approach. Between Tanner and I, we're totally almost 130 years of life experience. We're making some changes to enjoy our walks in different ways. Read on.... Walking your senior dog has never been so safe or as fun as it will be...
