Woof Woof Wednesday

What happens when a pup gets a little too extreme in her efforts to bury her food bowl because she doesn't like the flavor of food you chose for her? This. This happens.

Poor pup Astrid scuffed her nose. And this isn't the first time. When she isn't into eating her food, which is quite often for this ridiculously picky girl, she gets a bit violent with her food bowl. It's a strange sight to see. Don't worry, though. She didn't even seem to notice her scuffed nose, and it's already all healed up.

Happy Wednesday, friends!


Flashback Doodle of the Day


Tip of the Day

Today's tip is one a bit more for the dogs, but of course could be used for kitties if the situation applies. What we're talking about today is bell training. It can help to have a way for your dog to tell you they need to go to the bathroom. Since jumping and scratching at the door is not all that ideal, you can hang a bell, or a strand of bells, on the doorknob. Of course, make sure the design of the bell and any attachments are safe for your furbaby, especially if they're a chewer. Once you've selected and placed the bell to be used, training techniques such as positive reinforcement can be used to teach your dog to ring the bell prior to going outside to use to the restroom. This will allow your dog to make the connection that, if they ring the bell on the door, they will be let out to use the restroom. Just as with any training, this may take time, but with patience, practice, and positive reinforcement, everyone involved can get the hang of it.

Yikes! We don't think we've known a dog who was picky with his food.

That's too funny, but a cat thing to do, not dogs! Love that doodle.

Poor Astrid! We are sorry you hurt your nose. Maybe just let your mom know you don't like the food by walking away next time. XO
