Spirit and her Journey

After living her life outside for nine years Spirit found herself out of a home when her elderly owners moved into senior housing.   The Manitoulin Pet Rescue heard about her and offered to take her and re-home her. When Spirit came to me she was very overweight and severely matted. She has been with me for a couple of days.  On first trip to the vet she weighed in at

Dog Adoption

Adopting a dog – what to expect Don’t expect your new companion to form a strong relationship with your family in the beginning.  Whether you have adopted a young puppy or a more mature dog this transition is going to take some time.  Once everyone in your household gets to know each other and is comfortable in their environment the bond will grow naturally.

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

  Is this a good or bad premise?     The training climate today is that you should be able to do anything to a dog without a bad reaction.  Well I do not agree.   There are definitely times to ‘Let Sleeping Dogs Lie’     So many people post pictures and videos of their children doing things to dogs that are very dangerous.  Children riding, hugging and kissing dogs are all potentially dangerous.

Does your dog hate to be groomed?

Petting a dog is usually pleasurable for both you and the dog.  In fact studies have shown that just by petting a dog a human’s blood pressure will decrease.  This is a great benefit for both you and your dog. Sometimes brushing or combing a dog is not pleasurable, because the dog has mats and knots.  This means it hurts when the comb or brush gets stuck and it pulls
