Happy National Pit Bull Awareness Day

October is National Pit Bull Awareness Month and today, October 25th, is National Pit Bull Awareness Day. I first fell in love with this breed of dog about 11 years ago when I adopted my own. 

For years, the American Pit Bull Terrier has experienced breed discrimination. While I do believe each breed of dog exhibits their own unique features and traits, I don't think "vicious" is a trait for Pit Bulls. Or any breed of dog for that matter.

Create a Daily Dental Health Routine for Your Dog #SmoochUrPooch

Keeping up with your dog's dental health can be challenging. Many dogs hate having their teeth brushed making it more difficult for dog moms and dog dads. My dog doesn't especially care for the whole teeth brushing thing, but I know it's important for her dental health.

As you can see, Shiner doesn't look happy about having her teeth brushed... 

Did you know that 80% of dogs and 70% of cats already show signs of periodontal disease by the age of 3? When left untreated, oral disease can cause serious health risks for the rest of your pet's body and organs. All that bacteria in the mouth slips into their bloodstream. One of the first signs of oral disease in dogs and cats is bad breath.

How can pet parents avoid oral disease? Let me just say that dental health does NOT have to be a challenge or a struggle. It's something you should be diligent with, however.

Hands Free Dog Walking With the Buddy by Dutch Dog Design

I am always looking for pet products that make my life as a pet parent easier. Especially when it comes to dog walking. I confess that I need to exercise more often than I do. My dog is my biggest motivation to include exercise and outdoor activities in my life right now.

One of the biggest challenges for me personally when it comes to exercising with my dog is that it can be difficult to toggle both a 2 year old human child and a curious 55 pound dog at the same time. Of course, we always manage to enjoy some outdoor time with Shiner every day no matter what the circumstances are.

A few weeks ago, I was introduced to a simple hands free dog walking device that had me wondering why I didn't already own something like this. This innovative product is made by Dutch Dog Design and is called the Buddy multi-activity dog leash connector. I began to imagine all the things I could use this simple product for and how much easier it would make exercising with my dog.
