Did You Know This About Dogs And Gum?!

You've, no doubt, heard of Frisbee, and probably flyball, but how about treibball? I've covered these dog sports this month as suggestions for ways to have fun this summer. They're all great ways to burn off that famous Aussie energy.

Just to make sure your Aussie stays safe in the sun I've also covered the topics of heatstroke in dogs, so you know what to look for, and cooling vests for dogs to give you a tool to help beat the heat.

But I've been busy and have even more articles for you this month including one about the Kuranda dog bed that you may have heard about as well as one that surprised me about how toxic chewing gum can be for dogs. (Be careful not to leave a pack lying around that your dog can get into!)

If you'd like to get notices about new articles and product recommendations as I release them be sure to follow us on Facebook.
