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

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!

Noise and […]

Leo Sploots

Leo Sploots

Leo believes that it’s his world, and we’re just all living in it. He’s very slowly, but surely, learning that it’s my world, and I’m the boss. Before we brought Leo home, I bought a cute deep blue collar with matching leash that I knew would complement his fur color, assuming he wouldn’t pull too hard because he was a puppy. Boy was I wrong. For the first few weeks […]

Leo vs Potty Training Pt. 1

Leo vs Potty Training Pt. 1

Remember the endless articles I mentioned in the first post? About half of them were related to potty training. The gist of the articles combined was consistency, routine, controlled water intake, and endless potty breaks, so that’s what we set out to do. Our plan was to take Leo out immediately after meals and about every hour that he was awake. Every time we took him out, we set him […]
