Why do we need to talk about reactive dog training and how it can help? Simply stated, when we bring a dog into our families, we have an idea of what life will be like with this new family member.  As a dog trainer, I often have the opportunity to hear the stories clients share of what they hoped life would be like with their dog.  Some see doing long hikes in the woods, others see sitting on a patio at local restaurants with their dog, soaking up the energy of the city on a warm summers evening.  Of all the stories I hear, not one person has said to me that they were really ho ..read more

Why Capture Calmness: Some dogs are calm, chill and relaxed most of the time.  It seems that their default is to relax and stay calm.  For other dogs, reaching a state of calmness is harder to attain and not their go to behavior. Capturing calmness is key for dogs who are more hyper, high energy and not able to teach themselves to relax.  It’s important for every dog to learn calm behaviors for a variety of reasons like going to a cafe patio, when you guests in the home, or are trying to speak with someone while your dog is on leash. Calming behaviors can also help with stress r ..read more

Traveling with our canine companions can be a lot of fun and can really help to strengthen the bond between pet and pet parent.  Before you hit the road with Fido, though, there are a few things you will need to consider, such as finding dog friendly accommodations, selecting activities that are both dog friendly and suitable for your pet and ensuring that your dog knows some basic commands (or cues, as I prefer to call them).

While we at Milwaukee Paws Pet Care have always stressed the importance of cognitive enrichment for pets, especially cats and dogs, we have noticed that this year, there is a marked increase in the number of companies shifting their focus to it as well.  This makes us happy- cognitive enrichment is such a vital and important part of pet ownership, but it is often overlooked simply because pet owners don’t know better. When more companies stress the importance of this aspect of pet ownership, all pets win.  This makes us so happy!  One area that has become very popular is offeri ..read more

I am often asked what dogs need to be safe and comfortable in winter.  The truth is, this depends on the dog!  You need to look at whether your dog is bred to be an outdoor dog in winter or not, is your dog a large breed, small breed or somewhere in between?  Also, consider your dogs coat, age and history when deciding what your dog needs. For example, a large Great Dane still needs a jacket in winter as this breed does not have an undercoat to keep them warm, however a Siberian husky is built for winter and will be perfectly content relaxing in the snow with no jacket at all ..read more

November is typically the month of thankfulness, gratitude and Thanksgiving. It seems appropriate, given that we are preparing to head into a season of gift giving, social get togethers (well, maybe not so many social gatherings this year) and the start of the new year.  It always made sense to me that we begin the holiday season focused on what we are thankful for.  In the spirit of this, Milwaukee Paws Pet Care is writing a series of gratitude blogs.  This is the first in that series, with more to follow in the next few weeks.  Our first blog post is about why we are grat ..read more
