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 perhaps have read in many of my articles or books,...

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 important to a buyer? One “lifetime” radiograph or...

Study Shows that Environmental Chemicals Impact Dog Semen Quality

Environmental Chemicals Impact Dog Semen Quality – Duh! Here is an interesting report on a population of breeding dogs exhibiting a 26 year (1988–2014) decline in sperm quality and a concurrent increased incidence of cryptorchidism in male offspring (1995–2014). A decline in the number of males born relative to the number of females was also observed. Environmental chemicals (ECs), including diethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP) and polychlorinated bisphenol 153 (PCB153), were detected in adult dog testes AND (get this:)  commercial dog foods at concentrations reported to perturb reproductive...

Could The Whelping Box Be An Environmental Factor for CHD?

How can a whelping box be an “environmental factor” in puppies developing CHD (Canine Hip Dysplasia)? I was recently having a conversation with a fellow NR breeder, discussing CHD not being genetic and it got me to thinking about many of the environmental factors involved that are being found to contribute to CHD as well as how much we as human beings have meddled with nature and the canine species. Whelping Box an environmental factor in CHD? I think most of us already know the importance of having good traction or footing in the whelping box for new puppies. Take a look at...

Appropriate Exercise For a Puppy

Appropriate Exercise For A Puppy What is appropriate exercise for a puppy?  The idea that exercise is some kind of “magic bullet” that will solve all behavior problems with our dogs and puppies is simply not true.  I have been reading and observing that this idea has led to a dangerous trend of puppy owners pushing their puppies beyond appropriate levels of exercise. While it is true that exercise not only  inappropriate exercise may cause significant and irreversible damage.   Something for us breeders to think about and talk to our puppy buyers about. Take a look at this...

Canine Hip Dysplasia – Collagen Related?

Canine Hip Dysplasia – Collagen Related? You will see that this topic is one that I wish for everyone, especially dog breeders to really understand. Why is this condition thought to be genetic? Is it preventable? Is it being bred out of dogs by ethical breeders? The following is a very informative article is written by Dr. John Symes. Hip Dysplasia by Dr. Symes I have had plans to write a major paper on this frequently misunderstood topic for quite sometime. Unfortunately, the need to write about an ever-increasing number of life-threatening health issues prevented this from happening...
