Like it or not, winter is coming. In fact, here in Canada, Ontario – we have already had our first snowfall! So, it’s time we start thinking about some winter safety for our dogs.

Top 10 Most Energetic Dogs

Energetic Dogs, Breeds and What to Consider

I am a firm believer that not every dog is for every human. And what I mean by that is, all dogs are different. They differ from dog to dog, and from breed to breed.   Humans are the same. We are all different. So while a high energy breed such as a Siberian Husky might be a good fit for one person, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are a good breed for everyone. Today, I would like to focus more on the high energy breeds. I did some research, and compiled my own list of ‘top 10 most energetic … Continue reading

A Dog’s Nose Knows What a Dog’s Nose Knows!

Dog’s Nose and What It Can Do…

The nose of a dog is nothing less than remarkable. Dogs see the whole world with their noses. They explore with it, they find things with it, they can sniff out just about anything with it!   For certain dog breeds, their whole lives revolve around their noses – for instance, police dogs who have been trained to sniff out narcotics and/or weapons have extremely important jobs with their nose. Even for our pet dogs, their nose is their world. When I see my huskies sniffing around the house or the yard, I often wonder exactly what smells they are … Continue reading

3 Things You Didn’t Know About Siberian Huskies
