Treat Your Dog Right

Written by Deborah Rosen
People love their dogs. We show our dogs how much we love them by showering them with toys, affection, praise and, often, tasty treats. We dole out these goodies on a regular basis, on a random basis and sometimes for no reason at all.

And, Baby Makes Four

Confident Canines

All Bark and No Bite

Written by Deborah Rosen
Dog’s bark. It’s what they do. They bark to get your attention. They bark because they’ve heard something and want to let you and, apparently, everyone else know. They also bark to guard their houses and fenced yards. Some dogs, (not unlike people) bark just to hear the sound of their own voices.

Will Work for Dogs

Written by Colleen Oakley | Photos by Bev Hollis, Emily Rieman and Elle Garcia

Caring for a Senior Dog

Written by Nadine M. Rosin | Photo by Rondi Lightmark

Kidding Around

Written by Deborah Rosen
Like Travis and Old Yeller, Lassie and Timmy, Rusty and Rin Tin Tin, and even Lassie and Elizabeth Taylor as 11-year old Priscilla in “Lassie Come Home,” dogs and kids have been paired in books and films for as long as we can remember.
