Weekly Doggy Blog Post Roundup

Whale Poop Sniffing Dog Is Saving Killer Whales – If you know us then you’ll know over the past couple years we’ve been very interested in sniffer dog training.  In fact, our black Labrador Retriever, Stetson loves our K9 Nosework training class and has an unmatched enthusiasm for searching and finding the different odors/scents.  Obviously we have not worked on Stetson finding whale poop, but maybe it’s in his future!?  Anyhow check out how a whale poop sniffing dog helps save killer whales.

Are Too Many Vaccinations Bad For Dogs – We’ve always wondered about over vaccination and this article discusses some of the things you might want to do when it comes to vaccinating your dog.  We plan on visiting our vet and finding out his thoughts on the subject as well.  I’ve always been worried that over vaccination could be harmful to my dog and agree with the article that “less is more”.

When Dogs Dig: How To Curb The Digging Habit In Your Canine – We haven’t had a digger in a while, but our old family dog used to love digging to hide his possessions.  Anytime we gave him a treat he’d bury it in the side yard when we weren’t looking.  If we stared at him for a couple minutes instead of burying his treat he’d just eat it.  I wonder if he ever dug up those old treats when he was hungry? Pet Blogger Challenge – This year we participated in the 2nd annual Pet Blogger Challenge sponsored by the GoPetFriendly Blog and the WillMyDogHateMe Blog.  Lucky for us we barely got our blog entry into the blog hop and we were the 95th blog to participate.  Here’s our Pet Blogger Challenge Entry.  The challenge asks 8 questions about your blog that was a good exercise in looking at the past and future of our blog.  If you’re a dog blogger there’s definitely some gold in these mines!

What’s the Story Behind Your Pet’s Name – I love hearing about how people name their pets…there’s always a story.  We’re constantly thinking of new names for our puppies as we always seem to either be picking up new puppies or talking to our friends about their new pups.  Here’s our page on puppy names that helps us get started when it’s time to name our next pups.

That’s it for this week.  Remember if you ever have some awesome dog or puppy articles please let us know about it through our contact form or just leave us a comment in the comment section below.

So what about you guys?  Did you come across any interesting doggy blog posts this week?

    1. @Pup Fan, Thanks! I’m glad you found them useful. We’re trying to do a link roundup every week. Hopefully we can stay on schedule.

  1. Thanks for sharing my post! I didn’t realize puppy raisers were able to be involved in naming their puppies. I just assumed they were named by the organization. That’s pretty cool!

    1. @dawn, I love reading about puppy names and the stories behind them. As far as the naming our guide dog pups it depends on the organization. Our group, Guide Dogs of America lets the puppy raisers name their pups (puppy names just have to start with a specific letter). However, some of the other guide dog organizations name all of their own puppies.

    1. No problem Lindsay! We’ve always had concerns about vaccinations. You’re blog post definitely gave us something to think about.
