Keeping Your Dog Cool This Summer

Whether your pup is fluffy like a little snowball or sleek and trim every dog can benefit from a little extra TLC and attention in the summer heat. And just because it is warm outside doesn’t mean you and your four-legged pals have to hideout inside in an air-conditioned room. Here are just a few of our favorite and easy everyday tips to keep your dog cool all summer long both indoors and outdoors.

9 Different Dog Barks Deciphered

As a dog parent it can be challenging to understand what your pup is trying to communicate to you. But fret not because recently there has been some research into deciphering what some of the different dog barks mean. Read on to find out what your dog might be trying to tell you!

Just Add Water- Top 8 Swimming Dog Breeds

One of the most iconic summer scenes is a dog going for a dip at the lake or beach, but unfortunately for myself and a lot of dog parents with terrier breeds our pups tend to detest water. But fret not for there are plenty of dog breeds out there that love the water so much that it seems like they are part fish! Read on to find out a little more about some of the top water dog breeds.

10 Tips to Help Your Dog Cope with Fireworks- 4th of July Edition

Fireworks shows and spectacles might seem like an amazing and fun way to spend the 4th of July with family and friends, but our furry four-legged pals don’t always see it that way. If you are like me I dread this time of year along with New Years Eve and other holidays where fireworks are set off both by professional companies and the local kids. Both of my pups are not fans of fireworks and I know some of my dog friends even have pups that act as if the world is ending and they end up cowering in the closet under some dirty laundry or even try to escape the house through a sliding glass door. In fact, more dogs go missing on the 4th of July than any other day of the year due to fear caused by fireworks. It is important to remember that what might sound distant is actually much louder for our dogs and so they have every right to be frightened. Plus, they have no way of understanding what the strange and loud noises are. But fret not because here are a few tips to help keep your pups calm and safe during this 4th of July holiday.

Gotcha Day Celebrations!

The day you adopt and bring home your new four-legged family member is a momentous occasion. Many of us dog moms and dads celebrate these special days as a way to not only mark the passage of time, but to have a little fun with our fluff balls. With Watson’s gotcha day coming up on June 10th and our recent adoption of Sherlock on May 10th of this year we thought we might share just a few of our favorite ways to celebrate.

8 Signs Your Dog Loves You

Never in a million years did I think I would become one of those crazy dog people that loves her fur babies like human children, but after 2 years and 2 dogs I can say confidently and proudly say that I am a DOG MOM! My Watson and Sherlock are a part of the family and as such I show them tons of love and affection in various ways and even scold them every once in a while when they misbehave. I spoil them with treats, playtime, and most of all cuddles. But sometimes it can be difficult to tell if our dogs love us as much as we do them. Here are just 8 ways dogs show their affection for us.

Why Some Dogs Like to Cuddle and Others Don't

Have you ever wondered why some dogs are cuddlers and others are not? Well, this is something I have been thinking about a lot recently with our latest adoption from the Marin Humane Society, Sherlock (see our previous post about this). Sherlock, unlike her older brother Watson is much more of a cuddle bug and absolutely loves sleeping and napping in our laps or right next to our faces in bed. It is interesting to see the juxtaposition between the two when it comes to their morning naps. And as I am sure you are aware, all dogs, just like people, have very different personalities, interests, and preferences. Here is just a little bit about why some dogs like to cuddle while others do not.

How to Ease Dogs with Separation Anxiety

One of the most common challenges I have been seeing lately on pet parent and dog mom forums recently has been dogs with separation anxiety. This can manifest in a number of symptoms including barking, whining, crying, chewing furniture, urinating inside (when they are 100% potty trained), escape attempts, and being in general destructive. Separation anxiety is triggered when dogs become upset when they are separated from their guardians. Some dogs are easily agitated when they see their humans simply getting ready to leave and others only become anxious when their guardians depart through the front door. Others try to even prevent their people from leaving altogether. And then when their guardians return home the dogs act as if it has been years since they have seen their people.

3 Easy Ways to Involve Kids of All Ages in Dog Training

Dogs can be a fantastic addition to family life, but a lot of times parents are unsure of how to involve their children with training the dog other than at feeding and potty times. Here are just a few easy ways you can get your kids excited about and involved in training the family dog. It not only helps teach your kids responsibility and how to care for their new bff, but also can create a deep bond between them and the family dog. And as always make sure you supervise your children at all times with the dog.

Socializing Your New Puppy

When you hear the word ‘socialize’ in the context of your new puppy what immediately comes to mind? Perhaps meeting new people or dogs and being in general friendly. Although this answer isn’t inherently wrong, it is important to remember that socializing your puppy involves a lot more than just being friendly with people and other dogs. In general socialization means learning to be a part of society and that goes for humans and dogs alike. This means that socializing your puppy means taking the time to carefully introduce your new family member to different types of environments, buildings, sights, sounds, smells, animals, handling, grooming, in addition to other dogs and people.

Dogs in the Workplace: 6 Reasons Why Allowing Dogs to Come to Work Makes Sense

A big trend over the last couple years in dog loving cities like San Francisco and San Diego are companies allowing dogs in the workplace. Lots of high tech companies often get credit for creating the dog friendly workplace (think Google, Salesforce, Etsy, and Autodesk), but in my experience small businesses have often led the way in allowing dogs to accompany their human companions to work. I personally have taken Watson with me to work on occasion and I can tell you from first hand experience that it is both amazing and challenging, but the amazing far outweighs the challenges. Here are just a few of the benefits of having a dog friendly business:
