Brilliant K9 Dog Harness

Brilliant K9 Dog Vest – Harness

I see many dogs wearing vests and harnesses for one reason or another.  I don’t normally recommend harnesses for dogs who pull, but there are several other reasons that dogs should wear them including for dogs who have cervical issues and older dogs.  When asked what brand I recommend I only say Brilliant K9.  They are a top shelf company that hand makes their harnesses right here in the USA.  Each one is hand made and they have a range of sizes available so you will find the right size for your …Read More

Natural Flea and Tick Solutions

Natural Flea and Tick Solutions

With all of the natural flea and tick solutions and products available I am stunned that people still buy poison to put on their dogs. Think about a product that you squirt on your dog’s skin (less than an ounce) and it’s so powerful that it repels fleas over your dog’s entire coat for a month. Let’s think about what damage that might cause to our dog.

Consider for a moment that the largest organ on any animal’s body is their skin and then ask yourself why you would pour poison …Read More

Lovetuner

Lovetuner for People and Dogs

As some of you may know, I studied martial arts and eastern philosophy most of my life.  I taught traditional martial arts / Budo here in Los Angeles as well as in Switzerland for about ten years in the 1990’s.  Meditation has been part of my daily routine for most of my life.  I accredit my success in life as well as my abilities to my training in the Eastern Arts.  It has saved my sanity and my life on more than one occasion.

A few months ago I found The Lovetuner, …Read More

Kong Toy Chew Toy for Dogs

Kong

The Kong Toy
The Kong is one of those products that is defined by one word.  There are numerous copies, but we still call them KONG.  I use Kongs as a reward and a stress reliever.  I put a small amount of almond butter inside and leave it with a dog who is a chewer or has anxiety about being left alone.  I use it to train dogs in crates, I use it for teething puppies, bottom line is I LOVE the Kong and recommend it to all of my clients.

Kongs …Read More

Thundershirt for Dogs

Thundershirt

Dealing with dogs that have anxiety, fear or stress over common things can be a nightmare.  We often try to hold them and comfort them, but to no avail.  Sometimes that only makes it worse, because we are reinforcing that behavior.  I have recommended the Thundershirt to several clients and have seen good results.  It works in more than 1/2 the cases, and I’ve even used it on my dogs.

It’s a good product that doesn’t make a host of promises.  It uses a simple premise and that is the swaddling theory …Read More
