Best Flea and Tick Prevention for Dogs: Need a Strong Defense?

Dog scratching fleas

Every year seems to be more ominous when it comes to the threat of disease-ridden ticks and fleas, especially where my family and I live. While we have a beautiful scenic view of the Blue Ridge mountains from our home with deer often in our backyard, our yard backs up to tall grasses and woods that attract ticks and other pests. Our dog, Tiny, loves to roam our surroundings, but he’s brought unwelcome pests into our home…

You turned your back for one minute and now Fido has a stomach full of bathroom trash. Yuck! You know this isn’t going to be good. You take him to the vet and have an x-ray done and see all the q-tips, bobby pins and, oh no, a part of an old razor blade. Things just got really scary for you. The vet performs surgery and thankfully, Fido will be okay. However, your bank account is in some real pain now.

Best Dog Barrier for Cars: Ride Safer With Your Pup

Dog outside car with dog barrier

Does your dog like to explore the vehicle while you’re driving down the road? Your pup probably starts out in the back seat, then meanders up front with you (making sure to whack you in the face with her tail), then wanders to the back and continues this pattern until you reach your destination. This can be dangerous for your dog, you and other drivers on the road because you could get distracted by your dog. We know your dog doesn’t mean any harm, they’re just so excited to be on the road with you. We recommend some type of restraint for a dog when traveling in a vehicle. You can choose one of the barriers in this article or take a look at other types of restraints like seatbelts. As long as you’re keeping your dog out of your line of sight on the road, that’s all that matters for safety purposes…

My sister has an 110-pound Labrador retriever who can’t jump. Whenever they hop in the car, he puts his front paws on the vehicle and waits for someone to lift his back legs in. He’s done this his whole life — he simply refuses to jump. However, once they reach their destination, he is capable of jumping down out of the vehicle. Overall it’s pretty harmless, but when my sister was seven months pregnant and trying to take the dog to the vet on her own, it could’ve ended pretty badly. I think her husband would’ve been more comfortable if she had a dog ramp for the SUV…

Sally licking dad's face

When my husband and I adopted our dog Sally in 2017 we were extremely curious about her dog breed makeup. We suspected she was hound of some sort but were uncertain of what type or anything else beyond that. So, we decided to take a dog DNA test to learn more. We completed a Wisdom Panel test for her and in less than two weeks, we had the results. What we discovered in the results was completely surprising to us…
