6M ago
We’ve probably all experienced that “guilty dog” look — the one that they give us when we catch them doing something wrong and discipline them for it. Body lowered, ears, head, and tail down, maybe squinty eyes. But is it really guilt that the dog is demonstrating, or just submission? And what happens in your dog’s mind after the discipline is over? Does your dog forgive you? Fortunately, we know enough about dog behavior to understand our pets and how their emotions affect their behavior.  Dog Psychology: Do Dogs Hold Grudges?

Cesar's Way
by Josh Weiss-Roessler

Dogs like to bury things. Sometimes that means finding a bone or a toy under a fresh pile of dirt in your backyard. Other times, it may mean discovering the TV remote at the bottom of the laundry basket under all your dirty clothes, or wondering how your phone got under the couch cushion. Though these things may seem different, they are all really signs of the same thing: your dog’s natural instinct to keep “his” things safe and protected — regardless of whether or not they’re actually his. Why do dogs do this? Short answer: because it used to be necessary for their survival. Wild Dogs and Hi ..read more

A heart-tugging image of a brown Labrador retriever named Hawkeye lying beside the American flag-draped casket of his human companion, Navy SEAL Jon Tumilson, went viral on the internet within hours. Pet lovers were moved by the symbol of loyalty shown by the dog who would not leave his best friend’s side.

There are many reasons you might want to crate train your new puppy.

Aaachoo! For many allergy sufferers, a sneeze is just the start when they’re around a dog. The presence of a canine can also trigger coughing, wheezing, itchy eyes, and a stuffy nose.
