Have you ever wondered if there are benefits to having more than one dog? Our human has this thing about having two pups and she frequently gets asked, why two? Having two pups can help with activity and socialization, it can also help with separation […]
Today I’m going to show you my three step process to making two ingredient flamingo shaped treats.1. Mix together one cup of your favorite flour (we like chickpea) and one 4 oz container of your favorite baby food (I chose pumpkin). Have your human put […]
One of the most frequent questions we get is “how do you not get tear stains?”. We will tell you our secret but it’s probably not the answer you were hoping for. We like many dogs get tear stains, we tried avoiding certain foods and using special water but nothing got rid of them. The reason you don’t see them is because our main human freqently cleans around our eyes. We have found that once the fur is stained it is very hard (maybe impossible) to un-stain. So she has found that quick freqent cleaning once or twice a day is the best routine for us. For Kara what works best is using a fine tooth comb to pull out any larger pieces and then a quick wipe with a dry paper towel to absorb any liquid. For Riley using a Viva paper towel (they are super soft almost like cloth) to rub around his eyes helps absorb any liquid and break away any larger pieces of gunk. We do not use any water as we have found that just spreads it and makes it worse. This method of “dry” cleaning has worked best for us to keep our eyes looking clean. Do you get tear stains? Have you found anything that works for you?
Riley here coming at you from my pillow fort. Some of you may remember that I was practicing social distancing before it was cool. I used to have really high anxiety in new places and meeting new people. For me my humans found that training was what worked best to build my confidence and decrease my anxiety. They would take me out on adventures and give me lots of positive praise and treats. The trick was to push me a little out of my comfort zone but not too far (it’s a delicate balance). Because of COVID-19 I’ve currently reverted back to my old ways (temporarily). If you don’t enjoy social distancing there are still things you can do to keep busy. Hikes are a great option as long as you stay 6 feet away from other people. You could also do one of the many treat puzzles we love by @nina_ottosson (sold by @amazon , @petco and @outwardhound ) for a mental workout at home. Are you enjoying social distancing or feeling cooped up?
After Toro came to stay with us our human noticed one of his lips was a little dry. After a little research she started adding coconut oil to his food. His dry lip is almost completely cleared up. Coconut oil can improve a dog’s skin and coat, […]
We are currently fostering 9 year old Toro from @frostedfaces (who is available for adoption). This is the first time we have ever fostered and our humans were a little worried because apparently we can be territorial over our house sometimes 🙄. To make sure we all got along our humans brought us to the rescue to meet with Toro. When we got home we all spent 30 minutes in the backyard before all going inside together. This really helped us get acquainted with Toro and there have been no interaction issues since he came home with us. Have you ever fostered before? Do you have any tips for us first timers?
