There are many was to be successful in life, but one big key to success is remaining flexible. Spring was here, grass was starting to green up when we were hit with ten inches of snow! We had planned a nice walking adventure for our post today, but with the snow, trails are either too deep or a melting mess, so we had to find another way to work out. Bailie and I put our noses together and came up with an alternate plan using all the fresh snow. [Read more…]

Why is it important to crate train your dog? I will be honest, Katie was never in a crate until she was five and we moved from Germany to the US. I was only in a crate occasionally as a puppy, but Bailie is nicely crate trained and it has come in handy for multiple reasons. A dog can grow up and live a full life and never be in a crate, but often in life situations will arise where a crate is either required or the best idea. Because of this, pet parents should consider crate training for their dog. [Read more…]
Today is Bailie’s day out, Bailie’s day to shine. Bailie has her Tracking Dog test this morning, so I found it fitting to post a b/w photo of her today. There are six tracks and the draw is at 7:45, so she should be all done by 11 or so depending on what start time she gets. Katie, the kitties, and I wish her a big fat TD title. Mom isn’t so sure about it anyore as the last practice days Bailie has been more interested in goofing off than tracking. She hopes Bailie gets on track when she realizes it is a test and she gets to follow a track laid by someone other than Mom for a change. No matter how it goes, they will have a fun experience together. Hopefully Bailie’s day out won’t be a disaster!

Exercise is motion and comes in so many different forms. We love to walk and we do walk every day. Cousin Lena doesn’t walk much at home, so she loves to get her paws in motion and hit the trails with us when she visits! Exploring and sniffing are so fun and a good workout at the same time.

Is your dog a healthy weight? Did you know over 50% of pets in the U.S. are classified as overweight pets? This is such a sad statistic as pets themselves are not at fault. As pet parents, it is important to provide veterinary care, healthy nutritious food, and exercise to keep your furry family member in the best health possible. Keeping your pet at a healthy weight adds to quality of life and life expectancy! [Read more…]
It’s FitDog Friday time and today I’m talking about my senior sister Katie, who has pretty bad arthritis. Katie’s issues with arthritis started probably around the time she was eight years old. The Kuvasz has a long life expectancy for a large breed, 12-14 years, so having issues at just eight was a bit early. [Read more…]
A dog’s nose is nothing to sneeze at. As you know, Bailie and I have been doing scent work for over a year now and Bailie has been tracking since August. Since these two sports are based on our sense of smell, Mom has been busy learning all about how a dog’s nose works. We could probably blog forever about the workings of our noses, but today I wanted to share five facts you most likely do not know about a dog’s nose and how it works. [Read more…]
