Tips and Tails

Dogs and Divorce

According to the American Psychological Association, forty to fifty percent of marriages end in divorce. This statistic should encourage any couple who own a dog to consider signing an agreement that will state clearly as to who gets the dog or how the dog will be shared if their relationship ends.

Dogs Off Leash

It’s a big responsibility to walk with your dog off leash. That’s why I encourage owners to make sure their dogs receive proper off-leash training. Learn how off-leash training instills more confidence in dogs and also creates more awareness about their environment.

Rescue Dogs Versus Purebreds

When people are thinking about becoming dog owners, sometimes they wonder if they should adopt a rescue dog from a shelter or get a purebred puppy from a responsible breeder. I believe getting a dog is a very personal choice. So whether you plan on adopting a rescue dog or buying a purebred, be prepared to bring out the best in them.
