Exciting Things in 2018!

Many of you know me as ½ of The Dog Gurus, a business I co-own with friend and fellow dog expert, Susan Briggs. Together we co-authored Off-Leash Dog Play and our popular staff training program called, Knowing Dogs. Susan and I have been working together since 2007 and are always looking for new opportunities. And that time is NOW!


Do you buy gifts for your pet? Of course you do!!! Are you looking for some great holiday ideas for your dog this year? You’ve come to the right place. Ranger has tested all of these products and gives them four paws up. If your pup hasn’t been spoiled with these fun items, consider getting one (or all) of these gifts for your dog.

Technology Devices for Dogs

I love tech products.  I love dogs.  So I REALLY love it when those two worlds collide.  Technology products for dogs!  And I’m seeing more and more of these types of products lately.  This fall, I have been playing with a couple items that are multi-faceted:  a dog toy, a high tech gaming device, and a smart computer, all wrapped into one combined product for your dog.  Meet The PupPod/Pet Tutor Bundle.  


If you’ve followed my blog or have been in any of my training classes, you have probably heard me mention the importance of high value treats for dog training. Inside my house I’ll train Ranger with kibble. But outside, where there are tons of distractions, I will increase the value of his payout by using higher value treats.
