Today seemed a good day for a poem!
We're signing up for heartbreak,
We know one day we'll rue it.
But oh the way our life lights up
The years a dog runs through it.

Trikos Supplements CBD oil hopes you gave your dog his/her daily dose, and that you've both had a poetic day.
Before I got Maya, I'd never seen a healthy weight Newfoundland and the difference is shocking!
Maya was a year old when I got her, 130+ lbs, and got exhausted after just short walks around our neighborhood. Now at 6, she weighs about 110, has been on 5-15 mile hikes with some decent elevation changes, and often runs along with the horses on our trail rides through some pretty difficult terrain. I'd like to put more muscle on her, but am still very happy with how far we've come!
Ready to roll out of this week and into the weekend.
#QOTD Do you like dog parks?
Personally I am not a fan, I feel there is too much risk. I've heard there are some great parks out there and if so using one of those could be fun for a bomb proof dog. Also while some people are fantastic and really watch and/or engage their dogs while at dog parks, sadly, many just throw their pups in like it's a free break for them to sit and look at their phone or chat with friends.
Casey is too nervous to go to dog parks but even with Kobe I wouldn't. Daycare, walks and play time with trusted friends seems far safer.
Today I took Casey on a big hike and we often stop off to practice outside a dog park half way through. We never go in but watch the off leash dogs play by the fence and practice seeing excited dogs without being nervous. Today it started with 3 dogs playing then two more came in. Instantly two of the dogs rushed the gate as these two new ones were brought in and the original two started jumping and pushing them around as the owner yelled from half the park away. Eventually it was worked out without anything more than a few grumbles and once they got further everything was okay. However, a few minutes later a guy with a obviously nervous poodle mix came up and took his dog in leaving it ON LEASH. This poor dog was swarmed by 4 dogs and starting jumping and flying around and one starting barking and growling trying to make it stop, as it did this the owner had to run up and seperate. After this the guy kept going into the park with his poor dog still leashed and flinging itself around when a dog came near it. I left at this point as I didn't want Casey to get overstimulated if a fight broke out because people don't understand basic dog behaviour and instincts. I think everyone started to spread out at that point with all the tension but I didn't stick around to be sure.
It's reasons like this I personally don't like dog parks people force their dogs there sometimes and some don't realize they're dogs should have manners if going to a park. ****DISCOUNT CODES****

Sanotaan että agility on laji, missä ei koskaan voi olla täysin valmis 🙂 Aina on jotain kehitettävää tai tulee uusia ahaa-elämyksiä. Meille tarjoutui Hekan kanssa mahtava mahdollisuus käydä valmentautumassa Tuulia Liuhdon silmien alla. Tykkäsin erityisesti siitä, miten hyvin ja selkeästi Tuulia havainnollisti koiran sekä ohjaajan juoksulinjat. Tapahtui juuri se ahaa-elämys 😊 Hekalla oli tulta sekä tappuraa suonissa ja se laittoi kaikki likoon 😍 Eikä edes helle haitannut, kun oli asianmukaiset viilennyskeinot käytössä. Ja hei...palkkalelukin pysyi hyvin rintavarustuksen välissä, oli liian kuuma pitää treeniliiviä 😂 Kiitos Tuulia & @oneminddogs ❤️ #villakoira#villakoiraheka#agilitykoira#oneminddogs#nutrolin#nutrolinlife#fitdog#fitdogway#jyväskylänagilityteam
