Just as important as dog park etiquette  is the dog park itself.  It can be difficult to know until you take the effort to load the dogs up and pay them a visit, what a dog park is going to be like.  Join me on my journey of discovering Houston’s dog parks to help make your […]

Holiday Stresses

If there’s one thing that I noticed when browsing through pages, it’s that there is a lot of information on what to make sure your pet -doesn’t- get into during the holidays.  Chocolate, tinsel (who uses -that- anymore?!), poinsettias, and the list goes on and on.  Don’t get me wrong, these lists are important.  There’s just […]

Dog Park Etiquette

Dog-Park

I have to admit that until recently I wasn’t well-versed in the dog park language.  I knew it existed, knew the common words but wasn’t fluent.  To a lot of people, a dog park seems like a pretty self-explanatory world.  A place you take your dog to play with other dogs.  Simple, right? As usual […]
