Dental health is as important for our pets as it is for humans. This is your friendly reminder to brush your pet's teeth on a routine basis to maintain a healthy smile and prevent tooth decay or loss!


This is so important! Thanks for the graphic Safe Dogs By The River .

Is it enough to NOT see any stress signals from your dog during training or a socialisation experience? No!

You need to be seeing HAPPY SIGNALS in both of these activities! Yes! Particularly in training!

Don't turn training into a chore. Whatever it is you're teaching - loose lead walking, reactivity activities, recall. If you can't see that happy body language before you then somewhere the training is going wrong.


- you're not using aversives (remembering a lead itself can be aversive if you're using the lead as a tool for corrections - change your method!)

- you aren't getting frustrated yourself (your dog is reading you like a book, if youre frustrated, they're worried to engage with you. That can come out as either fear or fizziness).

- your dog understands what you are asking. Are you being clear enough in your rewards? Have you set him up to succeed enough?

- your dog isn't tired. How long have you been working? What else has your dog done today? Are you giving them days off training altogether?

If your training isn't happy and fun, you're working against yourselves. That dopamine pumping experience of fun is what you need your dog to feel around you. Not the cortisol pumping experience of stress.

Fun fun fun fun! Keep it fun! You're not programming a robot. Your dog has emotions too and they can either help or hinder your training success dramatically 🐾💜

Take a hike!

Hiking with your best friend has benefits that go both ways. Do you have a favorite trail that you like to explore with your dog? Comment where below.



Your puppy does not need to actively experience something for it to count as perfect socialisation. Here is young Harry watching his sister Ruby at her grooming session.

Harry is experiencing all the sounds, smells, visuals and no doubt soaking up how Ruby is managing it all and learning from her behaviour there too. This is perfect for introducing his brain to the world of grooming.

We often feel we need to throw puppies in the deep end for it to count as socialisation. We forget that watching and passively experiencing is just as important, especially if your pup is of a shy-er nature 🐾💜


In preparation for Thanksgiving, be sure to paws, reflect, and share thanks. We are all ears. Comment below what you are thankful for!
