Which Fruits Are Safe For Your Pooch?
There are two things I just can’t say no to: french fries and puppy dog eyes. I’m working on cutting out the fries, but the other one is a tad trickier. It doesn’t matter if the look is coming from a toddler, my fiancee, or my dog Duke — it gets me every time! So imagine my dilemma when I found out that there are TONS of fruits that are dangerous for my precious pup to eat. I thought it would be harder to turn down actual puppy eyes, but since I found out the harm fruits can

Understanding Canine Social Cues
I have a story for you. It may be one that you find very familiar since you’ve heard something very similar from someone you know or it could be a story that you’ve told yourself. It goes something like this: I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with my dog; sometimes, it was fine to pet him, but other times, he’d growl softly.
