    Cats and dogs dont exactly get along like peas and carrots. But, according to a study by Tel Aviv University, two-thirds of 200 dog-and-cat owners surveyed said their pets lived together with no problem and only 10 percent of those pets fought during observation. Coexistence is not impossible, but finding harmony in the house with both cats and dogs requires time and patience.

    We all know that our dogs need lots of exercise for their health and happiness and, lets be honest, it doesnt hurt us owners to get out there and cover some miles too. Walking is one of the best forms of exercise if done regularly, it is gentle enough for most people to get involved with, and it can help our waistlines, our wellbeing and our mood.

    We want to make walking the dog a great experience every time though, so here are some tips to get started:

    Some dogs love to splash around in a pool, while others avoid water as vehemently as they would a trip to the vet. Its a common misconception that dogs have a natural ability to swim, but if you do your homework, youll find this just isnt true (in other words, dont throw your pup in the pool to teach him how to swimit could do more harm than good). Either way, the weather is warming up and just as with a child, you need to know a few things to keep your dog safe around water.

    What happened to normal people who like to keep gentle animals as pets? Some people love to take a walk on the wild side and they decide to keep some very dangerous animals at home. If youve ever thought about taking things to the extreme you should think again because its not safe. I think we should look at some of the animals you might find in a few homes and gardens. All of these animals are kept as pets by people even if they have small children living at home.

    Pet check-ups are also called wellness exams because their purpose is to keep your pet healthy and well. You should take your pet for a wellness check-up once each year. Visiting the vet annually helps to catch underlying health problems before they develop into serious issues.

    How often should your pet get a wellness exam?

    Every cat and dog should get a wellness exam every single year. These annual exams should take place all the way into your pets senior years. The older your pet gets, the...

  • Top 5 Training Tips for Aggressive and Stubborn Dogs

    The adage that you cant teach an old dog new tricks may or may not be true, but old dogs mostly lie around and sleep all day, so you dont really need to teach them anything new. The dogs you need to train are unruly and energetic puppies that will jump on the furniture, try to steal your food, and attack anyone they dont recognize, namely your guests. And if your dog happens to have an aggressive nature or stubbornly refuses to obey your directives, you might not necessarily know how to...
