A Brief History of Small Dogs

A Brief History of Small Dogs

It’s hard to name a better inter-species team-up than human beings and dogs. In contrast to other pets, canines are highly trainable and willing to take our lead in many useful ways: Sled dogs and police K9 units can enthusiastically perform physical work alongside their humans, while service dogs drastically improve the quality of life of individuals. Yet the true beauty of the human-dog relationship is companionship, and since companionship doesn’t require size, strength, or resilience, it has opened up the door for all sizes and shapes of dogs to be bred—including toy dogs, such as our beloved French Bulldogs.

Living With Messmakers 101: How to clean up after your dog

Living With Messmakers 101: How to clean up after your dog

We’re going to state the obvious here: dogs are messy. Not just because they're furry and lick their own bodies, but because they're animals. And animals simply can’t clean up after themselves. If your dog spills their food, gets their muddy paws on the couch, or has an accident in the house they can’t exactly bend over and pick it up. So as a fur parent you’ll have to step in and save the day! But where to start? How do you clean up after a dog?

SOS! My dog is bored -- and driving me crazy!

SOS! My dog is bored -- and driving me crazy!

Being vocal. The zoomies. Excessive licking and chewing. Pacing.

These are just some signs that your dog might be giving you to tell you that they are bored.

Dogs sleep 12-14 hours a day, but for the remaining 10-12 hours they want excitement. The obvious answer would be to walk them, but that’s not always possible depending on people’s lives. Things like work, childcare and your personal health can take some time away from your dog. So, what do you do when two walks a day just doesn’t seem to be cutting it?
