Spirit and her Journey

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.

Loose dogs learn early on that when they come close to you after being called they are going to be put on a

Keeping your pets Safe during the Holidays

Sometimes we can forget that some things in the house at this time of year can be toxic to our furry friends.   Poinsettias are toxic and can easily be left where the animals chew on leaves.  Chocolate also has a toxic effect and a small dog can become very sick, even die with ingestion of chocolate.   Other plants that are in the home at this time of year are Holly
