    from All Things Dog Blog

    Wednesday August 20th, 2014 at 07:00 AM

    by Carrie Boyko, CEB Tanner's Favorite Gator ToyEach year about this time I drop everything I'm doing and write a post about gator safety. It's a passion for me to help you watch out for your dog's safety around bodies of water where gators may be present. Why? I've grown up in Central Florida where lakes are all around me. Every golf course has water hazards and even these often have a reptilian resident that could take your Beagle or bigger down for his last swim. Let's not let that happen....

    Michael Baugh CDBC CPDT-KSA Buffer courtesy Michaels Dogs Puppy Biting Hurts!Sure they're cute. But puppies bite. In fact, they can be little piranhas. And,puppy biting hurts. There is good news, though. Seriously. Most puppies do grow out of their nasty biting habit. Better still, there are things we can do to help speed up the process. So, grab a paper towel to stop the bleeding. Then check out this video for a quick course on how to keep your puppys sharp teeth off your delicate skin. If...
  • Doggedly Seeking Doga Pushups

    from All Things Dog Blog

    Friday August 15th, 2014 at 09:00 PM

    by Carrie Boyko, CEB Buffer So take a guess where I started with my yoga pushups. Yup, on the wall. And to be honest, that's still where I do the majority of them. #fessuptime My upper body strength has always been a challenge in tasks that involve my whole body. I'm 5'10" tall, so that's a lot to leverage. I'm not making excuses, but I hope I'm giving you some inspiration; there is hope. :) Despite my inability to do a series of pushups that look like they should, I can do pushups from my...

  • Fido's Freebie Friday Has an Empty Bed!

    from All Things Dog Blog

    Thursday August 14th, 2014 at 07:00 AM

    Square_140_pby Carrie Boyko, CEB Buffer I know; I know! That title must have thrown you. With two dogs, a cat, and a third dog that cycles in and out between my Mom's home and my own, you'd think there couldn't possibly be an empty pet bed in my home. But actually I was referring to a human kid. Today I'm loading up to officially become an empty nester. Yup; you heard it here first. With my two sons out of grad school and successfully working for a living, I'm down to one last kid as my final graduate...
  • When Pet Food Companies Merge

    from All Things Dog Blog

    Monday August 11th, 2014 at 07:00 AM

    by Carrie Boyko, CEB If there's one thing that can really get pet parents riled up, it seems to be the merging or blending of two pet food or treat companies. I'm with you. When my pets' food is potentially up for a revised recipe, I want to know all about it. I want to make the choice--stay or run. Sometimes running is the right thing to do. Some years ago when our Xena was diagnosed with cancer I woke up and read the bag. Her first veterinarian had recommended the food that she had been on...
  • Doga Modifications for Your Comfort: Wide-Legged Seated Forward Fold

    from All Things Dog Blog

    Friday August 8th, 2014 at 09:00 PM

    by Carrie Boyko, CEB If your hamstrings are half as tight as mine, you'll find that you're with me here. I'm not going to be mimicking my daughter's forward fold, seen at the top in these images--ever! After separating one hamstring from my hip in a skiing accident, I've got an extremely tight area back there that doesn't allow any forward folding to happen. But I'm working to make it all come together. I've progressed through blocks at various heights, used blankets under my fanny to raise...

    by Carrie Boyko, CEB Our third #PetCharityDonations giveaway was once again a nice event. The rescue will be receiving supplies to help perk up their adoptable pups, making them clean and beautiful. The two packages include shampoo, ear cleaner, bandanas, and poop bags--to make sure that all that work didn't go to waste. I'll also be tossing in some Castor and Pollux Good Buddy Beef Sausage Treats so the pups can get rewarded after they accommodate a nice grooming session. Yum yum! As soon as...
