So how do you get two dogs to walk by your side? I always walk my two jokers in the Haltis; those things are a godsend! Bruce the albino goofball could walk in a harness, but walk Flanders in anything else, and she thinks she's one of the Budweiser Clydesdales! I have the halti harnesses; I just nee...

I have the same problem with Flanders, my Belgian Malinois. She's good at home, but when we get to the dog park, she gets so excited she cannot contain herself.

The Jolly Ball comes in various sizes, is made of soft yet durable plastic(?) and has a handle for easy throwing. I have two of these, and they are durable, plus th...

I add water to my dogs dry food, find it much better for them and they don't gulp down water which does cause problems. : Tell me about that! Many years ago, my first Dobe wolfed down her kibble and it went down the wrong throat. The ER vet gave her an expectorant plus some antibiotics to prevent p...

Hi, I'm Dawn and I am a brand-spanking new member! I live in Maryland, not far from the nation's capital, and I have two dogs. Bruce is an albino Dobe and his BFF is a too-smart-for-her-own good Belgian Malinois named Flanders. Please note that she's named after the region, not the Simpsons characte...
