Some days the weather just will not cooperate with getting our dogs outside to play to burn off their energy. What are some things that we can do to help dogs fight the boredom of those days? Try working on simple obedience skills or manners. Even the best trained dogs can use a short session to refresh their skills. This also gives you time to work together and form a stronger bond with your dog. An indoor game of fetch may be good for your dog However choose carefully based on the room available, size and energy of your dog, and presence of neighbors. My dog loves...

Where would we be without our furry companions? The connection between dogs and people has been around for thousands of years. Although scientists and historians debate the timeline for the domestication of dogs, the bond has clearly existed for a LONG time. It is interesting to look back at the development of this relationship. At one point, the connection between dogs and humans was a matter of survival. Dogs helped to protect humans (and later, livestock) from large predators. In return dogs were able to feed off the scraps left by humans. The origins of the phrase “three dog night” refers to dogs and humans sharing...

MENTAL ENRICHMENT FOR DOGS Many of us have active dogs who behave so much better when they are able to get out for physical exercise to burn up their energy. They are less likely to get themselves into trouble (chewing, digging in the trash etc) if they are tired from physical activities like walks or playing ball outside. But what about times when it is cold or weather is harsh and your dog doesn’t want to stay outside long enough to burn off that energy? Or maybe your dog is dealing with a health issue where they are not allowed to be as physically active as...

Nature Walks: there is more to it than meets the eye. It is more than a dog owner taking their beloved furry family member out for a stroll through the countryside or down the street; depending on where one may live. It is a mental and physical stimulation while it gives the opportunity to engage in socialization for the dogs. Researchers have conducted studies that show walking reduces stress and lowers blood pressure while keeping the owner and their furry friend happy. At the Pine Creek Pet Resort, we offer a unique experience, a side of Nature Walks and a Smile Training Walk. A Nature...

Dear diary: I hear someone coming. Oh good, it’s one of my kennel staff friends. Oooh oooh ooh. That means I get to go outside! So much fun being able to sniff and run around out in the yard.
