dog in K9 Sport Sack review on dogtrotting.net

He’s not heavy; He’s my dog – Take your Pup Along with K9 Sport Sack.

Luke and Layla, two little Shih Tzu crosses, are remarkably different personalities despite bonding together … at three different homes. Their original owner died, leaving them to his ex-wife who promptly advertised them online for adoption. (Be careful who you leave your pets to). Both little white characters are now my nephews’ dogs adapting nicely […]

Solutions for an Aging Dog Mobility Issues Part #4: Orthopedic Dog Bed

Victor, my likely 12-year-old cocker cross, sleeps anywhere. Pretty much everywhere, including my bed, his beds, or the floor. He’s not picky. But I am. I’d rather see him curl up in any of the beds I’ve bought him because that’s got to be more comfortable, especially if the bed therapeutic. If I’m more comfortable […]

Solutions for Aging Dog Mobility Issues Part #2: Toe Grips. Yes, Toes.

What’s the first thing I tried after my dog Victor had cruciate ligament surgery? Toe grips. Little rubber pieces that slip over his toe nails (with a bit of effort and some baby oil). (Learn more about cruciate ligament injuries or ACL on Fidose of Reality here). Why? Because Dr. Julie Buzby told me to. […]

Oh Canada … PIJAC National Pet Industry Trade Show. Woof.

No question – the pet industry rocks. And it’s time to roll with the red and white but no blue … almost. Like SuperZoo in Vegas, the annual National Pet Industry Trade Show in Toronto is only open to those in the pet biz (and a few media members like dogtrotting.net). Unlike SuperZoo, it’s focused […]

6 Unique Dog Treat Ingredients: Will Dogs Eat Them? Find out (Contest too).

Will my dog eat an Alligator? Ok, clearly my little black terrier-cross isn’t going ‘gater hunting anytime soon – though he is brave enough. But there’s some exotic stuff going on in the dog treat scene, or so I discovered searching out new trends at SuperZoo last spring. Each company gave dogtrotting.net a complementary bag, […]

“Don’t Stay Thirsty, My Pup” Beef broth ice cubes keep dogs hydrated

Travelling with the dog mid-summer offers a lot of rewards but poses a few challenges: a big one on our trip was getting my crazy cocker-cross Victor to drink water. Not just enough water, but any water. He’d occasionally woof down half a bowl, but only after getting really parched. Trying to convince him to […]
