    Just a fun question. Curious about how many unique ways a doberman will use that long snout of theirs! Joe will let me know that I am taking too long getting ready for his walk by running over to his leash, use his nose to flip it onto his back, look at me and whine! :p

    What are your thoughts on or experience with muzzles? Joe,my reactive shelter adoption is doing really well and settling down nicely. Walks by MOST people and dogs and ignores them. The catch is MOST. Every once in awhile he will bark and sometimes lunge toward someone who is saying "Good...

    Dog Seat Belt Harness

    Has anyone used these? Do you think they are as safe or safer than an airline crate in the back? We have a compact SUV (Mazda CX5) and it seems kinda slidey for the crate. If Joe was secured to the seat-belt while laying down in the back seat it seems like that would be safer. Opinions please!

    Dog Boots

    We live in the desert where the ground can get hot very quickly and there are thorns and sharp rocks on the ground. We like to go hiking and I love my lightweight boots.

    Update: Happy Joe the county shelter rescue

    Firstly, he has definitely wormed his way into our hearts and is becoming part of the family. We think he was walked very little and tied out in a yard-his "mug shot" shows him with a spike collar on and a chewed off tether hanging from it. On the other hand, it seems he was loved on (maybe...
