Your Dog’s Anxiety about thunder

Posted by Bruce Edwards on January 24, 2017  /   Posted in Really Good Dog Food and Training, Really Good Pet Food

Living in South Florida, we are never too far away from the sound of thunder.  It can be a very quiet sound if it happens way off in the middle of the everglades.  It can also be a very scary thing if it happens right over our house.  It even scares us and we know what it is and why it is occurring.

Now, let’s think about our dog for a moment.  First, we need to understand that their hearing is far more sensitive than ours.  When we whisper, they can clearly hear what we are saying.  Now, let’s think about a thunder clapper over or near our house.  Wow.  That can be very loud and even hurtful to them.  Along with that, they don’t understand what is going on and why it is occurring.

Getting a Second Dog

Posted by Bruce Edwards on January 15, 2017  /   Posted in Really Good Pet Food

So many people just fall in love with the experience of having their first dog.  It is truly an amazing experience of unconditional love.  They often think that if one dog is wonderful, a second dog could be “doubly wonderful”.  They also reason that their first dog would love to have a companion to play with when they are not around.

These are all nice thoughts and I am sure that their intentions are in the right place.  The problem is that a second dog is not always the best idea.  If one id great, it is possible that two might not be that great.  There are many items to consider before you get a second dog.

keep your dog from running out the front door

One of the must universally bothersome things that dogs do is to run to the front door when someone wings the doorbell.  After that, they often make a quick dash out the door and into the front yard when we try and open the door to greet our guest.  As I stated, this is always annoying and can also be a very large safety hazard.

We are always asked “How do I get my dog back after he runs out the front door?”  I have a very simple answer, “Don’t let him run out the front door”.  The way to accomplish this is pretty simple and can be easily woven into your normal actions of greeting guests at the front door.
