Vimtag Pet Surveillance Camera Review

What do our pets get up to when we lock the front door and go out, even if just for a few minutes? Do they crank up the volume on the radio in the kitchen, where they have their beds, and enjoy some hard rock, or do they prefer a little talk radio? Do the little dears stare, aghast, as a horde of gremlins climb through the partially open window and raid the fridge then leave tiny pieces of cheese all over the dog’s beds so they get the blame? If we could see what they do when left […]

The Pros and Cons of Installing an Electric Dog Fence in Your Yard

Today on the Dog Blog we have an interesting guest post from Mey over at DogFenceDIY. It’s certainly food for thought and I’d love to hear your opinions on this type of system of containment. When it comes to the safety of your dog, you can’t afford to cut any corners. It’s so important that your dog be able to exercise and explore in your yard, but they also need to be protected from their own blissful ignorance of the dangers in the outside world.

The Furminator Deshedding Tool Furminator Reviews

Excuse me if I sound a little excited but Furminator where have you been all my life. I can’t believe it has taken me, what, 19 years of owning Dogs to finally actually get a Dog brush that works properly. The Furminator deshedding tool is frankly amazing. I can’t even begin to count how many different Dog brushes we have gone through over the years, way too many. Our first Dog Sam was a hairy beastie but never really seemed to shed too much fur. But the three girls we now have are like some kind of Dog hair […]

How Long Does It Take Shy Dogs To Be More Confident

I have written a number of posts here about shy Dog training and how our Daisy Dog was a total mess when we first got here from the Dog pound over 4 years ago now. It has been a very long struggle to get her to come out of her shell and the fact is that now you would not recognize her and her behaviour from what it once once. When we first brought Daisy home she was lifted out of the car a quivering wreck and then ran into the woods and hid. It took a lot of […]

Nuheart: Soluble Heartworm Tablets

We normally give our Dogs Nuheart now once a month to ensure that they stay free of heartworms. We don’t need to use Heartgard Plus as intestinal worms are not really an issue. But the other month I made a mistake and bought a similar sounding product but I really wish that I hadn’t. Nuheart is one of the only heartworm tablets that is soluble. If you buy Nuheart then you will find that the monthly dose to prevent heartworms is simplicity itself. No trying to tempt the Dogs with a treat with a hidden pill, and certainly no […]
