On this blog we share a lot of useful information on everything from the best food to buy your
furry friend, how to deal with vaccinations, the best dog for your lifestyle, and so much more.
With all that useful but serious information, sometimes it’s important to just relax with some
fun dog facts. With that in mind, we are happy to share with you the official list of last year’s
most popular dog names! Yes, that’s right, just like children, dog names come in and out of
fashion. So, what names made the top ten this year and what were the dog name trends in
general. Let’s find out.
Like us, dogs are intelligent and social animals. While that’s great most of the time, it also
means they can suffer from a lot of the same mental health issues we do. Compounding the
problem is the fact that mental health (whether in dogs or in people) still to this day comes with
a lot of stigma attached to it. In another post, we went over some of the signs you can look for
if you think your dog might be suffering from issues such as depression or anxiety. If you’ve
already read that, and you think you might be dealing with a depressed or anxious dog, here
are a few things you can do at home to help with the problem.
Dogs can be one the greatest companions for people who may live alone. They provide an
emotional connection, a responsibility, and quite simply…a good friend to come home to.
Unfortunately, that also means that these dogs are often left alone for long stretches while
their owner is away at work. Some dogs can handle this better than others. Certain breeds
simply can’t be cooped up all day without becoming mischievous, and very young or old dogs
might need to be checked on more regularly. So how do you set you and your furry friend up
for success while there’s no way around that 8-hour workday?
In another post, we discussed some of the surprising and not so surprising foods you should you
should keep away from your dog. If you’re on this website, you obviously care for your furry
friend and want to be as good a caretaker for him/her as possible. However, no one is perfect
and accidents do happen. So, what should you do if, despite your best efforts, your dog has
eaten something toxic?
It may surprise many people to know that domesticated dogs are not strict carnivores. They
actually get a lot of their nutrition from certain kinds of vegetables and grains. That being said,
it might be going too far to say they are omnivores. Us humans can eat just about anything – in
fact, it’s one of the greatest evolutionary traits that modern humans have developed. While
dogs can handle a bit of diversity in their diet, there are a lot of things they can’t eat. We all
love feeding our little friends scraps from the tables, and let’s be honest, it can be hard to say no
to their sad little faces. We’re not here to tell you never to indulge your dog, but some foods
are simply too dangerous for dogs to eat and can lead to serious illness or death.
