I need your help.
I have a page on the website that is for my readers to tell their dog story. My hope was to have people tell their story so it might help someone else with the same problem. But lately there has not been any activity on this page. Could you please look at this page and contribute something if you can.

Have you ever wondered if music can soothe dogs the same way it can relax people?
The answer is yes.
And this is very good news for helping our pets when they become stressed, anxious or nervous.
Some pets become upset or anxious under certain circumstances - for instance, during thunderstorms or fireworks, when they are left home alone, traveling in the car or when they are in unfamiliar surroundings.
Some dogs get so upset that they will actually throw up or chew away areas of their hair and skin. When they are stressed, many dogs are likely to hide and not be found. Some dogs even become manic and run away.
We love our pets, so of course we worry. We don't want to see them upset or stressed out.
Some dog owners have tried "creative" ways to ease their pet's stress, like leaving the TV or radio on for company when they must leave their dog home alone.
But that could actually be doing more harm than good.
Pet anxiety studies have suggested that TV and radio can actually CREATE stress for our pets because of the drastic changes in programming and the random mix of musical styles. The TV and radio certainly create "noise," but they don't necessarily create a relaxed environment for pets.
What about music?
Studies show that music DOES ease pet anxiety - but not ALL music has this effect.
Music is good for the soul. They say it calms the savage beast. And it turns out that's more than just an old wives' tale. It's a proven fact.
Classical harp music is used around the world to help alleviate stress and heal sickness in animals.
Animal shelters are installing sound systems to play music that will create a more serene environment for pets.
Studies show that dogs and cats prefer classical music. Cats will relax in front of the speakers when classical music is playing, and dogs will actually bark less - especially when they are listening to the music of Bach. Amazing.
Classical music can calm pets when they are in stress-inducing situations. But all classical music will not have the same calming effect.
To relax a pet, the music must have a soothing dynamic from start to finish - which is not the case with most "off-the-shelf" classical music.
This remarkable CD was developed for the specific purpose of calming our pets.
It uses only those sounds that have been proven to calm dogs, cats and other household pets - so it really works.
Music My Pet was created by the same folks that brought you Disney's award-winning Baby Einstein series for kids, so this is music at its very best.
I think this CD is amazing!

AND have them obey all of your house rules...... even when you're not around!
If your answer is "Me!" then read this free ebook because you're about to discover how to put an end to your dog's behavior problems once and for all using proven techniques that give you immediate results...
Tips to Save YOU money...
1. Trimming your dog's nails and grooming his or her fur at home saves money spent on professional groomers.
2. Practice good dental hygiene. Daily brushing of your dog's teeth has significant returns.
3. Don't skip vaccinations or flea and tick prevention . Vaccines protect pets from painful and tragic diseases such as rabies, and fleas and ticks carry harmful diseases such as the plague that may also be spread to people in contact with pets.
4. Buy fewer toys , and trick pets into thinking those toys are new, time and time again.
5. Be creative with ways to make toys more interactive. Consider buying Buster Cubes or Kong toys for dogs to give them more stimulation while they eat or enjoy treats.
I hope these tips help your budget and most importantly the health and happiness of your dog.
One additional tip on the list is to consider pet insurance. It is one that I firmly believe in as well. For those on a budget, it can really allow you to do the best for your dog when you need it most.
Pet insurance dramatically reduces the costs of large veterinary bills, ranging from emergency care after an accident and cancer treatment to preventative check-ups and care including vaccinations.
