Rules to Live by: Leash Etiquette in Public

December 21, 2021

By Bryan Heafy

One of the most common challenges dog owners experience when they head out into public is other dog owners and dog lovers.  This is challenging because dogs are not often granted the right to consent. It’s important for us all to remember that a dog being in public does not imply consent. Humans claim they can’t control themselves around dogs and simply “have to” pet them.  Dog owners let their impulsive dogs rush up to other dogs on the pretense that “he’s friendly!” So what can an owner do to protect their dog from instigating or receiving unwanted attention?

September 27, 2021

By Jenna Harrison

Cats have evolved to keep a rhythm of activities that keep their metabolism in check. This sequence affects every part of their daily metabolic processes, ranging from their hunger and digestion to their grooming and sleep cycles.  The Importance of ‘The Hunt’ Think about how a lioness lives in the wild: She sleeps during the midday hours.
