Why are dogs noses wet?

Why are dogs noses wet?    There seems to be no one reason why dogs’ noses are wet. It is a combination of a number of different factors :         A) Grooming Dogs are constantly licking their noses to clean themselves from all the trouble they’re sticking their nose into. And will lick dirt and sticky things off their nose

Why I Feed my Dogs Raw Food

I have fed my dogs raw food for over thirty years.  How I came to do this started when my children were small. My eldest had HADD disorder (Hyperactivity Attention Deficit Disorder)  and he was an extremely difficult  child to handle.  Taking him to the doctor was no help, as the doctor put his disruptive behavior down to jealousy of this younger brother and lack of discipline on my part.

First Time Every Time Come When Called

Coming when called is one of the most misunderstood ’command’ in the dog training world. First of all it should not be a command but and invite. Come over to me and good things are going to happen is how the dog should perceive the word come. Loose dogs learn early on that when they come close to you after being called they are going to be put on a
