people

I see ppl on the TTC or other places in public, where they actually will kiss their dog right in their mouth, or let the dog lick their tongue and lips. How disgusting and filthy is this? Why do ppl do this? If you want to show appreciation or affection to your pet dog why not pet it on the head or ...

day

Looking for some advice from dog owners regarding what you do with your dog if you are at work for 8-9 hours a day. My wife and I are again in this debate about getting a dog.

litter box

Currently using an open one, takes up the whole 2nd washroom, good for when I was single and only needed one washroom, so now I'm looking for something smaller. I've been looking at some top entry ones but opinions vary. I've also considered making a DIY hidden cabinet/shelf mod but I'm not sure if ...

leash

I tend to get cold fingers easily and when walking the dog when it's below -10C, my finger tips get painfully numb after walking 30-60 mins. Usually it's my hand that is holding the leash that is worse (and wearing thick mitts is a pain to hold the leash), so I figured I'd try to make my big glove t...

Hi guys, As my dog is getting older, I've noticed her pearly whites have plaque build up and I can start to smell the plaque 😞. She has never allowed me to brush her teeth even at a young age.

diet

... way is to reduce his kibble and that is what we did. He had gained 3 lbs. and was put on a diet. The vet weighed him and he had gained another 1.5 lbs.
