THE DOG'S MIND: Click on the image to the right if you would like to read about techniques for socializing and maintaining youth and vitality in your canine companion. Recent studies on aging have revealed that both diet and activities can help to prevent symtoms associated with aging in dogs. This is good news!
The Canine Mind
WATER: We all know how important it is to avoid becoming dehydrated and most people carry bottled water with them wherever they go. However, I often see people exercising their dogs without providing safe, clean water for their dog, who is usually working out much harder! Click on the image to the left for some suggestions.
SKIN PROBLEMS: Many dogs are troubled by dry, itchy skin, especially during winter in northern areas, but also in desert areas. Over-bathing can cause problems in breeds that don't have an oily coat. Click on the image to the right for suggestions regarding diet and bathing.
Skin Problems
Eye Care EYES: Sometimes dogs' eyes need special attention because of hayfever or other irritations. Here are some suggestions for home remedies; click on the image to the left.
EARS: Dogs' ears require special maintenance; they are designed differently from human ears. Some breeds require veterinary care for ears, but all require routine cleaning and careful attention. Click on the Dobe profile to the right for a few helpful suggestions.
Ear Care
Dental Care TEETH: Dental care is crucial for dogs' health, and let's not forget . . . their social life! Click the Dober head on the left for techniques for avoiding that stereotypical predator breath <cringe>. ]:@[=]
PAW PADS: A dog's feet take a lot of wear and yet we tend to forget about them. An essential part of grooming is checking the paw pads for damage and applying a moisturizer to prevent cracks. Click to the right for more info! Pawpad Care
Treating Minor Wounds WOUNDS: The treatment of minor wounds becomes an essential skill when raising a puppy. Any serious wound needs the attention of a vet, but minor scrapes can be treated at home for quick healing.
TOXIC SUBSTANCES: Dog owners need to be aware of hazards around the home; often things that you might never expect a dog to consume are well-documented hazards to be safeguarded against. Read about a few of these here.
Toxic to Dogs!
The Well-Dressed Dog CLOTHES FOR DOGS: Short-haired breeds especially need protection from the elements, even indoors! I'm not afraid to admit that my Dobe wears jammies in winter. ];@}=} Check the link at left for pics . . . and suggestions.
SPAY INCONTINENCE: Many female dogs develop incontinence immediately or some time after being spayed. In addition, male dogs may become incontinent due to prostate problems. In either case, your vet will want to check for diabetes first and to investigate for other potential medical causes.
Toxic to Dogs!
Names for Dogs NAMES FOR DOGS: Choosing a name for your new canine pal can be a fun and informative occasion.  You will probably always remember this event, and why you chose the name you did.  Some different considerations apply from choosing a baby name; the other dogs won’t laugh if you call your pup Fifi, but if other people do, that could have similar consequences. Try our puppy names page . . .
TREATS FOR DOGS: What could possibly be more important in this world than a dog biscuit? <grin> That special treat you give yourself after completing a difficult chore shouldn't be underestimated, nor should the treats you give your dog. Click on the pic on the right for a delicious and nutritious biscuit recipe to bake for your best buddy. Oh yum! ]:@}==}
