Leo Talks Back

Leo Talks Back

Leo is usually a quiet puppy (emphasis on the usually), aside from his random baby dinosaur noises when he’s yawning or stretching. We’ve been very lucky that he doesn’t bark at other people, dogs, or other random things dogs bark at. When we first introduced crate training to him he would whine and bark in the crate. Gradually (and thankfully), he stopped altogether as he grew more comfortable in the […]

Leo vs the Vet

Leo vs the Vet

Before bringing Leo home, we knew he would be coming home with his first round of shots, and we would be responsible for the rest. As soon as we confirmed the day we could bring him home, we scheduled his vet appointment the very next day. Since we were new to Florida, we weren’t sure which vet to take Leo to. After looking through the 1-800PetMeds Vet Directory for which […]

Leo Goes to the Dog Park

Leo Goes to the Dog Park

The dog park. The park filled with dogs. The greatest place on Earth (for a dog lover AKA me). Since I’ve never had a dog before, I never had a reason to go to a dog park, which is what made going to the dog park one of the most highly anticipated events in mine and Leo’s life. We, of course, waited until Leo turned 4 months and had received […]

Leo the Piddler

Leo the Piddler

Like I mentioned in Leo vs Potty Training Pt. 1, Leo has been pretty good about not going in the house, and we’ve pretty much stopped carrying him from our door to the potty spot. Although, since everything seems to be one step forward, two steps back, I wasn’t surprised to see Leo piddle for the first time. It goes like this: Leo sees people. People see Leo. Leo starts […]

Leo’s Battle of the Bath

Leo’s Battle of the Bath

Leo hates baths. I’m not kidding. Leo, the (supposed) water dog, hates baths, pools, and the ocean. However, he loves standing in the torrential downpour of Florida rain. I guess it helps him think about where he wants to pee next. Anyways, getting Leo into the bathtub isn’t too difficult. Keeping him in the bath is the real problem, which makes it a two-person job—especially as he grows stronger and […]

Help your Dog Survive Summer with Cosequin Calm

Help your Dog Survive Summer with Cosequin Calm

For dogs, summer can be the best time of the year with pool and beach days, extra-long evening walks, increased outside time, and more! On the other hand, summer is also filled with crashing thunderstorms, ear-splitting fireworks, endless outdoor construction, packed family parties, and extended family vacations.  These events can be stressful for some dogs, and Cosequin Calm Chewables are perfect to help keep them calm and relaxed. Noise and […]
