Dog-related links from around the Web this past week:

7 Reasons to Hire a Dog Trainer in a DIY World. Such a great explanation as to why a dog trainer is a great investment. We’ve only had two classes with our trainer, and I feel like we’re already reaping the benefits! An excellent post from Pamela. (Something Wagging This Way Comes)

Tugging Games. What happens when multiple dogs want to play tug with the same toy? Adorableness ensues! (Paws on the Run)

Modern dog beds and accessories from Waggo. I like the mod patterns on this dog gear: So colorful without being garish. I always have to stop myself from buying Pyrrha a million collars and leashes, though. Does anyone else have this problem?? (Dog Milk)

Cheat Sheet for Identifying Additives and Preservatives in Dog Food. Can’t pronounce the ingredient? Then it’s probably one of these mysterious additives and preservatives added to your dog’s kibble. Really helpful to know what these murky chemicals are actually supposed to do. (The Hydrant)

A Small Rant. This is why “big dog” people don’t often like “small dogs.” Time to train your toy breeds, world! As a side note: I was really heartened–and surprised!–to see a shih-tzu puppy in Pyrrha’s training class. It’s a shame that it’s so rare to see small breed owners taking obedience seriously. (The Elka Almanac)

Anja Zaharanski 365 Dogs Project. Artist Anja Zaharanski has set out to draw dogs every day for a whole year. The results are stunning! I can’t believe she does this every day; they are all beautiful. (Dog Milk)

Also, thanks so much for the Versatile Blogger Award, Tinkerwolf! Pyrrha and I are flattered. We love reading about Ted and following the progress of your raw-fed dogs photo project!

  1. Thanks for including me in the great list of links. I loved the tug pictures. That toy, with the nubbs, looks like a great way to encourage safe play. I’d love to have one.

    I don’t even know what to do with the list of food additives. For example, carageenan is made from seaweed and is commonly found in human foods, like ice cream. That’s a lot different from propylene glycol. Yuck.

  2. Hey, thanks for linking me!

    I always try very hard to keep from “overaccessorizing” Elka. Really, she only has one collar at a time that’s her main collar, and we have a couple of leashes. Though I really want to get one of those use-it-4-ways (or however many) leather leashes…and maybe one of those lovely patterned martingales that i keep seeing on greyhounds (like at the Tales and Tails blog).
