Awesome Articles of the Week
No, It’s Not All How They’re Raised
Although people mean well when they say ‘it’s all how they’re raised’ that phrase isn’t doing anyone any favors. Look at how Michael Vick’s former fighting dogs turned around & became awesome pets. Every dog is an individual, and both nature and nurture play their parts in development. Some dogs with a horrific upbringing make loving companions later in life, and some dogs with great ones can end up aggressive.
Electronics-Sniffing Dogs Help Solve Cybercrimes
The are three dogs in the U.S. that have been trained to sniff out electronic components, and as you can imagine they’re in high demand. These dogs are helping to fight cybercrimes by detecting flash drives, laptops, and smartphones – items that to the rest of us have no smell what so ever.
Remembrance Day Blog Hop to Honor Pets Who Have Passed On
If you’ve ever struggled with the loss of a pet it’s important to know you’re not alone. I’m very grateful to have found this community that’s free of judgment. This is a wonderful collection of memories, poems, pictures, and stories to honor pets that have passed on.
There’s More To Smart Dogs Than What ’60 Minutes’ And Chaser Showed You
Fascinating look into what researchers are describing as the “learning to learn” ability that our dogs have developed. The findings suggest that our dogs are indeed getting smarter through training, and if you’re willing to put in the hours any dog can become exceptional like Chaser.

I have and probably always will use food in dog training. Over the past few years food as a reward turned into a controversial subject, one I’ve never quite understood.
Veterinary Medicine is a Business, and that Includes Alternative Medicine
Amazing article that takes a look at the backlash many veterinarians have faced over the past few years. It’s a touchy subject for many, myself included, but after working closely with some amazing veterinarians over the years I find it disturbing that some people believe the majority are just motivated by money incentives.
Why I Rescue Blocky-Headed Wigglebutts
The inspiring story of what led one man to create the Animal Cruelty Task Force of Ohio. (as seen in the featured image)
This year, a group of us got together that met through the Animal Cruelty Task Force of Ohio and formed the Political Action Committee known as the Ohioans Against Breed Discrimination. It is our goal to make Ohio the 20th State to BAN breed specific/discriminatory legislation statewide and we’re gaining quick traction with the politicians we are working with.
