Enrichment – Puppy Adventure Box

I am always looking for ways to provide enrichment and learning experiences that will develop my puppies physical, psychological and emotional health. I know that every new experience we give our puppies before they go to their new homes can help them to be the best they can be. So I wander the aisles of hardware and home improvement stores thinking of ways to use their products; usually not the way they were intended to be used but to challenge my pups as they grow. It is a well researched and known fact that animals that are raised in...

Epigenetics – Shape Shifting Our Puppy’s Genes

As most of us know, breeding dogs (or any animal for that matter)  is considered to be a combination of  art and science; if we were to ignore the art factor, we would be  robbing ourselves of the enjoyment of creativity. If we were to ignore the science factor, we would be quite foolish.  If we really want to be an accomplished and reputable dog breeder, and leave our chosen breed in better genetic shape than when we began breeding, then we need to pay attention to advances in scientific knowledge. One of the most facinating and important...

Grounding or Earthing For Our Dogs

Dogs, like us, are bioelectrical beings . This planet we live on,is an electrical planet, always vibrating with healthy frequencies and a slight negative surface charge that just happens to be required for a healthy immune system in plants and animals alike. The word “negative” in this context means an abundance of electrons that can move quickly and reduce charge. Emerging science has revealed how direct contact with the ground allows dogs (and, of course, humans and other animals) a life-giving energy infusion! As you may already know or...

The Health Risks of Canine X-rays

Have you ever stopped to think about the health risks of x-rays for your dogs? Thinking, knowledgable dog breeders are finally starting to question the marketing hype that leads our dogs down the path of “routine radiation exposure”.

Read the entire article HERE Which is more...
