Encourage Dog Lovers to Adopt 💕

On social media, Molly recently saw a post shared by a Pit Bull lovers page. Instead of talking about how amazing Pit Bull breeds are, it was talking negatively about Chihuahuas. It was essentially saying that people should be judging Chihuahuas for aggressive behaviors, not Pit Bulls, and nearly everyone in the comments agreed. But how is that okay? How can you be mad at people talking badly about Pit Bulls, but then go on talking badly about a different breed? (Click title to read more!)

I used to think dogs in strollers were hilarious. In fact, I often still do. It’s kind of ridiculous to see a dog in a stroller when they should be walking. Sometimes, you even need to do a double take to make sure they’re a dog and not a human baby. But I’ve recently learned that laughing at dogs in strollers is not a good idea.

I recently realized that a lot of dog parents don’t know what a dog license is. This is sad, especially since many cities require your dog to be licensed. It’s not a hard thing to do, and if it’s required, you should definitely do it for you furry friend. Even if it’s not strictly enforced, it can still have plenty of benefits for you and your pup.

I won’t lie, when Molly and I see a human who chose to buy a dog instead of adopt, it’s frustrating. We want to tell them how important adoption is over and over again.

So, there’s a better way to discuss dog adoption. (Click title to read more!)

This might seem convenient, but did you know that harnesses are actually the safer choice? (Click title to read more!)

Some dogs are much more fearful than others. For example, Taco whines and cowers over smallest things in life while I don’t let little things scare me. That’s just because every dog is unique, just like humans are. But did you know that the clothes you wear can actually scare your dog? Here are some common clothing items that can worry your dog.

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it before, but I love camping! When Molly was in high school, we went camping with her family a lot. And now that we’re back in Wisconsin, we’ve started going again. Camping is exciting for any dog because of all the amazing smells and sounds. However, it can also be overwhelming for a dog who has never been before. (Click title to read more!)

Safety is important for everyone, especially dogs. Recently, more and more humans are rightfully caring about their dog’s safety, which is why pet products are constantly advancing. You might notice that many products, such as carriers, seat belts, and strollers contain an attached leash inside. But sadly, many dog parents are using them all wrong! (Click title to read more!)

If you follow my blog frequently, you probably know that I recently moved 20 hours away from my old home. It was a big change, but it ended up being a great thing for me and my family. So, I wanted to give some tips to my fellow dogs out there that are scared of moving. And, of course, I have tips for all the dog parents out there too. (Click title to read more!)
