AKC Breed Groups: Non-Sporting

Today we are going to look at the Non-Sporting Group. The Non-Sporting Group is comprised of 20 different breeds. It is a wide array of dogs of all different shapes, sizes, colors and temperament. The one thing they have in common is that their job description doesn’t fall into one of the other Breed categories!

Exercise to Keep Your Pet Fit and Healthy

We all want healthy and happy pets, but all too often Fido and Twinkle adopt the bad habits of their owners and instead of being active and physically fit they become couch potatoes. It’s our duty as responsible pet owners to make sure that our pets get the proper amount of daily exercise to keep them fit and physically at their best.

Nutritional Needs of Your Pet - Part 2

A few weeks ago, we kicked off a new series here at Petnet intended to take a deeper look at special diets for your pets. In our first installment, we took a broad look and dietary needs based on age, showing how a  puppy’s nutritional needs differ considerably from an adult which in turn differs from a senior pet.

Today we’re going to turn our attention to special diets related to allergies or being overweight.

Should You Get a Dog Walker?

Last week we wrote about the benefits of the daily walk for your dog {link}. Hopefully we convinced you to start a new routine with your dog and schedule a daily walk.

Benefits of the Daily Walk for Your Dog

We frequently write about the importance of exercise for your dogs. Not only does it help keep their weight in check (yours too!) but it helps keep their minds alert and attentive. A daily walk should be a requirement for every dog, no matter what size of dog, big or small, short or tall.

Understanding Your Dog’s Body Language

Dogs can’t talk but they can communicate with us if you read their body language. Most dogs are quite expressive with their movements and expressions. A few may be a bit more bashful or stoic, but if you pay attention, you will clearly be able to read them and understand what they are saying with their body language.
