Things to Know Before Adopting A Dog

As any dog owner will tell you, dogs are awesome! They don't judge you if you quit running on the treadmill five minutes before you're supposed to. They don't roll their eyes when you reach for your second donut. They are willing yes-men who make you feel good about yourself. They are loyal, fun loving, and generally great to have around. However, dogs also come with responsibility. For the sake of both you and your future best friend, you should do some homework on deciding which type of dog to buy. Here are some dog guidelines to think about before purchasing your pooch...

The UP200 & Midnight Run Sled Dog Race

Last year I witnessed the celebratory start of the Iditarod in Anchorage, Alaska and while it was pretty cool, it only whetted my curiousity of the sport that is dog sled racing. Having my interest piqued I was delighted to find, a year later, that there was a legit dog sled race in Michigan just eight hours from where I live. 

The dogs of the Iditarod

When you think of Alaska you think of bush planes, grizzly bears, snow, igloos, and a blue eyed Husky standing alert in front of a sled staring at majestic white capped mountains in the distance.

4 Things to Consider Before Buying Your Perfect Pooch

The dog's coat: This is important because it should affect your decisions on what dog to buy. If the dog is going to be living inside, it's likely you want a non-shedding dog that doesn't leave hair hanging on every fuzzy surface inside your home. If you can't stand any dog hair whatsoever, buy a puppy with a non-shedding coat.

Standard Poodles-a breed to consider (if you are smart enough)

Standard Poodles are a non-shedding, large sized dog with above average intelligence. Since most people don't enjoy having pets that are smarter than they are, the Poodle breed usually enjoys smart owners. Indeed, Poodle owners think they are smarter than everyone else, sometimes only because they own a Poodle.

Things to remember while celebrating the holidays with your dog.

Chicken and turkey bones can be bad for the cutest member of your family! Cooked bones can splinter and damage your dog's throat or intestines. Raw bones can contain harmful bacteria that can cause diarrhea. This can cause a lot of holiday stress for both you and your dog. No one likes stepping on Fido's little Christmas “presents” on the morning after Christmas. But, bones aren't all bad.
