I live in Western New York, so I know what cold is. Winter can be dangerous here – not only because of snow and ice that make driving hazardous, but because the temperature gets so cold that people and animals can actually die. This is a serious issue, and dog owners need to educate themselves about dogs and cold weather. Our dogs are no more capable of surviving in frigid temperatures than we are…so let’s not expect them to! When is it too cold for dogs? Let’s review some of the times your dog is outside in cold weather and see what your guidelines should be. Thanks for watching! Debra
In this video, we’ll discuss dog obesity, how to determine your dog’s ideal weight, how to weigh your dog, and we’ll discuss step-by-step things you can do to help your dog lose weight. Thanks for watching! Debra 🙂
Dog Obesity is just as serious an epidemic for dogs as it currently is for humans. Dog obesity can greatly reduce your dog’s life span, and greatly lower your dog’s quality of life. Helping your dog to maintain a healthy weight is one of the best things you can do to increase the quality of your dog’s life, as well as make him live longer (and enjoy his life more!)
How to Help a Dog Lose Weight
As discussed in the video, there are several easy steps you can take to help your dog to lose weight. These include reducing the dog’s food intake to be more in line with the amount of food the dog actually needs to fuel his activity, exercising the dog more (a few minutes of playtime in the evenings or a short walk can do wonders), paying attention to what your dog’s body looks like, and refraining from feeding too many table scraps. In my opinion, the easiest and most effective way to help your dog lose weight is to start feeding them raw vegetables instead of treats.
Dog Obesity is Preventable
I hope you found this video and article helpful in showing you that dog obesity is treatable and preventable. Please feel free to comment below to let me know how your dog is doing on his weight loss journey! Please feel free to add suggestions or ask questions as well. Thanks for visiting! Debra 🙂

Buy Pet Medication Online
I highly recommend buying pet medication online instead of at your local vet’s office. The vet’s offices just don’t/can’t do the volume that the online pet medication stores do; therefore, they can’t possibly offer the pet medications at a decent price. You’ll save a TON of money by purchasing your pet’s medications online instead.
Discount Pet Medications
Don’t be afraid to buy your dog’s medication or your cat’s medication from VetApprovedRX.com. They are selling the same products you’d get from your vet’s office…the same medications, the same brands. They’re far cheaper on VetApprovedRX.com because they’re sold in a much larger volume, that’s all.
Please Share This Information
Please share this blog post with your friends who have dogs or cats. It could save somebody a lot of money on their pet’s medications, and possibly even make it possible for the pet owner to provide the medication if they can get it cheaper. They’ll appreciate it a lot – both the owner, and the pet!

In this video, I’ll help you decide if pet health insurance is worth it for dogs. We’ll talk about things you should know before buying pet health insurance, and we’ll go over the pros and cons, as well as the cost, to help you decide whether you should purchase pet health insurance for your dog. Thanks for watching! Debra
If you’ve already watched the video above you know that my opinion is yes, pet insurance is worth the cost. The only circumstance in which I would recommend that someone not purchase health insurance for their pet is if the person is somewhat wealthy and easily able to pay out of pocket for any medical expenses the pet may have – up to and including a serious illness or accident. But if that’s not the case for you, I strongly recommend getting pet health insurance.
Best Pet Health Insurance
I personally recommend Healthy Paws as my top recommendation, mostly because of their outstanding record of excellent customer service. PetPlan is also excellent, and I’d consider them my second recommendation for the best pet health insurance. Click on the links above for each of them to get your free quote.

In this video, we’ll talk about how to get a dog to stop eating poop, specifically why they do it, and how to stop it. Whether the dog is eating his own poop, other dogs’ poop, or cat poop, this video will help you understand the reasons why dogs eat poop and ways to get them to stop! Thanks for watching! Debra
Dogs eating poop is truly disgusting. I know, because I’ve experienced it. I also had a mini doxy who ate cat poop from the litter box!
Why Do Dogs Eat Poop?
Here are some possibilities:
The dog is hungry
The dog has a vitamin or mineral deficiency
The dog has been taught to eat poop (ie, by an owner who pushed his face into it when he was being housebroken)
The dog has a parasite infestation
These possibilities are discussed in the video above, and are the first things you should consider when trying to figure out why your dog is eating poop.
How Do You Get Your Dog to Stop Eating Poop?
Give him a daily multivitamin
Make sure he’s getting enough to eat
Take him to the vet to make sure he isn’t having a parasite issue or other medical problem
Clean up the poop so it’s not there for him to eat!
I hope this article and video have helped you with this very disgusting, yet very serious issue. Dogs eating poop can be harmful to their health, so it’s important that you get it solved. Please feel free to comment below with questions or feedback. Thanks so much for visiting! Debra
In this video, I list the foods that are harmful to dogs and cats (and why), plus provide info on what to do if your pet eats something toxic. I also talk about ways to keep your pet safe from foods that are poisonous or toxic. Thanks for watching! Debra 🙂
I was so surprised when I actually researched online to find out which foods are poisonous for dogs and cats. I knew chocolate was bad for dogs, I knew certain plants could be toxic to animals (especially cats), and a few other things. But I had no idea the list would be so long!
Take Steps to Protect Your Pets
It’s our job as pet owners to protect our animals from getting into things that can harm them. Even though they might be begging when we’re eating chocolate, for example, doesn’t mean we should share it with them. They don’t know any different, but we do! We have to educate ourselves so that we can keep our pets safe.
Keep Your Pets Out of the Garbage!
It’s very important not only to make sure you pets stay out of the garbage, but also to make sure we don’t leave food lying around that is harmful to cats and dogs. Leaving candy (especially chocolate) on our nightstand, leaving food on the coffee table…leaving food anywhere our pets can get to it isn’t wise. Even if it’s not toxic, we don’t want our pets eating things other than what we give them (and we don’t want them stealing our snacks! LOL)

In this video, I’ll give you good advice about taking your dog on a vacation and include tips for traveling with a dog. There’s a lot of info in this video – stick with me and watch the whole thing, because there’s likely to be stuff you didn’t think of! Thanks for watching. Debra 🙂
There’s lots to consider anytime you’re taking your dog anywhere – whether it’s on vacation, on a weekend trip, camping – or even just on an outing for the day. The most important thing is that you consider your dog’s comfort and safety. You have to consider, for example, what you’ll be doing on the trip or vacation and whether your dog is going to be able to join you on those activities – or if they’re just going to be stuck alone in the hotel the whole trip. You also have to consider many (many!) safety concerns involved with traveling with pets.
Is This Beneficial to the Dog?
You have to consider whether you’re just taking your dog with you because you feel guilty leaving him home alone or boarding him, or if the dog is actually going to enjoy the vacation or the outing. Will you be doing activities that the dog will enjoy? Will the dog be safe, both traveling to the destination and while he’s there? And one of the biggest concerns, in my opinion, is Will The Dog Be Scared On This Trip? The truth is, most dogs don’t travel well. A lot of dogs don’t travel well in the car. A lot of dogs don’t walk well on a leash. A lot of dogs don’t stay with their owners and will run away. Many dogs are not ok with being left in a hotel room (most are upset in a hotel even when their owner is in the room with them). Dogs can get upset, nauceous, sick…you have to consider all of this.
I Hope This Has Helped
I hope you got good advice in the video at the top of this article, and I hope you’ll continue to check out articles and videos online to educate yourself about traveling with your dog. And I’m so glad you’re doing this – that you care enough about your precious pooch to make sure you know what you’re doing if you’re considering taking him with you on a vacation or trip. You’re a good dog parent! 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting. Debra
In this video, we’ll discuss how to keep the dog out of the garbage. I’ll give you several effective tips to accomplish this, but more importantly, we’ll discuss the DANGERS of the dog getting into the garbage and the importance of keeping the dog out of the garbage for their safety. Thank you for watching! Debra 🙂
Keeping your dog out of the garbage obviously saves you a ton of time and aggravation because you won’t have to clean up those messes anymore. Also, it’s important to take steps to keep him out of the trash so that you’re not angry with him. Any time you’re upset with your dog, it’s not good for you or your dog. You should always be taking steps to make things as easy and problem free for you and your dog as possible so the two of you can be happy!
Keeping the Dog Out of the Trash Can Save His Life!
Not only is it a pain for your dog to get into the garbage can and make a mess, but it can also be extremely dangerous for your dog. There are many foods that are poisonous to dogs, even toxic. You can see a list of these foods HERE. If your dog gets into the garbage and eats something that’s going to make him sick (or worse), then obviously you’ve got a much more serious problem than having a mess to clean up.

In this video, I’ll discuss steps you can take for helping dog’s separation anxiety and ways to actually solve the issue. Dog separation anxiety is a serious problem that needs to be addressed for your dog’s sake, and for yours! Thanks so much for watching. Debra
Dog separation anxiety is a serious issue because it can be terribly upsetting to your dog, and also to you. If your dog is experiencing separation anxiety, then it’s clear he’s not happy, calm and content – he may even be fearful – and this is not healthy for your dog.
I feel the most effective way to help a dog with separation anxiety is to do Pack Leader Training. This is where you take simple steps to teach your dog that YOU are the pack leader, not HIM. As soon as your dog sees that you’re the one in charge, you’re the decision maker, then he’ll know that he doesn’t have to be. That alone is the most effective way to solve virtually any dog behavioral issue. Dogs need a pack leader. They need to know that they can follow your lead and just let you make the decisions. They need to know that YOU are in charge of providing food, of protecting the house, of protecting the family…if your dog knows this, then he can finally calm down and relax, and that includes being able to relax while you’re away from home. My recommendation is to sign up for The Online Dog Trainer,a dog training website that will teach you step-by-step how to do Pack Leader Training.
