Nearly 40% of dogs in the US are overweight. Overweight dogs are at higher risk of health problems like arthritis or health disease. Research says that people who exercise with their dogs are more likely to maintain a fitness program.

Even house-trained dogs will have accidents when transitioning to a new home. New surroundings cause extra stress for dogs. Extra attention for your pet and special care to schedule outdoor time around the feeding schedule will help your dog feel at ease again.

Excessive itching and scratching indicates canine allergies. Dogs frequently have allergic reactions to products found at home such as cleaners, detergents, even plastic food bowls or chew toys. See your vet for a remedy and help in determining what needs to be removed from your living environment for the continued health of your pet.

Dogs need loyal humans. Spend plenty of time with your pooch. Whether bonding in training classes, exercising with one another at the park or resting on the sofa at the end of a long day, the time you and your dog spend together doesn’t just benefit you. This love and attention also keeps your dog happy and healthy. www.koolcollar4do...

Getting your dog to eat has more to do with smell than taste. Dogs have less than a quarter of the number of taste buds humans have, but their sense of smell quivers inquisitively at all the interesting scents surrounding them. Leftovers and garbage attract dogs because of the smell. If something smells edible, a dog will happily scarf down every fragrant bit. www.koolcollar4do...

Unchain your dog and eliminate the possibility of attacks. According to a 2006 study at the University of Minnesota, chained dogs are 2.6 times more likely to bite than unchained dogs. Happier, healthier dogs get exercise in a fenced-in area or recreating with owners. www.koolcollar4do...

Never allow your dog to travel in the front seat. The air bag can erupt from it's storage at nearly 200 mph. Dogs in the front seat are at risk of severe injury or death if the airbag deploys. www.koolcollar4do...

Ease Your Dog’s Arthritis and Keep Him Active with a Rice Sock. If your dog suffers from arthritis or even just old, creaky joints, try this simple home remedy. Fill an old knee sock nearly to the top with regular, uncooked white rice, and tie a sturdy knot in the top. Put your shiny, new rice sock rice sock in the microwave for a couple of minutes, and then place it in your dog’s bed to keep him warm for hours and hours. The warmth will help relieve his pain. www.koolcollar4do...

Treat Your Dog with Baby Carrots Instead of buying expensive dog treats for your best friend after he has performed well on a run or during a training session, buy a bunch of fresh baby carrots. Dogs hold baby carrots in high esteem, and your pet will love you for it. Carrots are also healthier for dogs than most regular treats. www.koolcollar4do...

Choose His Collar Wisely You probably spend a good amount of time choosing your exercise gear and clothing in order to make sure you are comfortable and well-equipped for the activity. Since your dog can’t pick out for himself what to wear, make sure you choose the best collar and leash to accompany him during his times of exercise. Collars that are comfortable and fit properly will make exercise a joy for your dog.

Keeping Your Dog Active Will Help Him Be More Obedient. When your dog doesn’t exercise, all the repression of energy will make him more easily excitable and less responsive to your commands. In this state of mind and body, even commands that he is very familiar with will become difficult to follow and both you and he will become quickly frustrated. A tired, exercised dog will be more receptive and more obedient. www.koolcollar4do...

Know Your Dog’s Base Energy Level. The base energy level of every dog is different. Although they still need regular exercise, some larger breeds, the Saint Bernard for instance, have very low base energy levels and will be happy to just mostly laze around. Other, more active breeds like the Italian Greyhound and the Jack Russell Terrier have extremely high energy levels. Research the energy level of your breed and exercise him accordingly. www.koolcollar4do...

I only sweat around my footpads. Unless I have been in a puddle, wet footprints are a likely sign sweat glands are chugging away due to overheating. It's important to cool me down at this point. www.koolcollar4do...

Don't let your dog put their head outside a moving car window. www.koolcollar4do...

    My dog; Calpurnia, received an eye injury after hanging her head out the window. I now put my dogs in a dog seat belts. So when the windows are down they still get to feel the breeze. Just no more window surfing!

    They love to feel the breeze! Though a lot of people don't know the dangers of a dog's head outside a moving car.
