There are a lot of myths behind dog breeds. There is the belief that the perfect dog will come from a breeder or that you can find purebreds in pet stores, that mutts make messy housemates and are completely unpredictable, hard to handle, difficult to train. Well, I’m here to debauch these myths. I’m here to tell you why mutts make the very best dogs!
As I am sure you already know, a dog speaks in body language far better than it does vocally. This is why hand signals work better for training canines than simply vocal commands on their own. Learning to “speak dog” by understanding their body language, how their eyes, mouth, ears, tail, barks and body try and speak to you, improves your relationship with your pooch! It also comes in handy for reading your dog in situations where you might have anxiety such as dog parks, around children or on the usual vet visits. Read on for some dog speak tips that I have learned over the years that might help your communication with your canine improve!
As an adoption advocate, I think it is important that I keep people informed about dogs out there that desperately need to find their forever homes.

Please read on to learn more about Angus, where he is waiting for you to pick him up, and to see a lovely video of him!
Since I’m doing a room-makeover in my house at the moment, I got to thinking about all the little details I’d need to make it as dog-friendly as possible for little Luna. Luna doesn’t chew, she doesn’t leap onto furniture unless we have initiated it at least once, she doesn’t take things that aren’t hers, so while dog proofing a house for me is pretty easy, for others it can be a bit of a challenge whether they have dogs old or new. Read on for a few tips and the chance to WIN A BOOK that will help you and your dog live in harmony far better than this post could!
