We immediately began taking her to group classes, which focused on controlling your dog … Continue reading Ruff Times with your dog? Send ’em to Rehab!

Dogs, Convicts and Bears — Oh My

At 2:29 a.m. Monday morning, a roughly four-feet tall black bear strode a dozen feet from where I was sleeping the moment before. My trusty pup — an 18-pound, just turned 2-years-old Jack Russell/Italian Greyhound mix — stirred from under the warmth of his favorite plush blanket, alerted me with a low growl and sat at attention, staring down the intruder. Probably drawn by the … Continue reading Dogs, Convicts and Bears — Oh My
