Rabbits – Not the Easter Bunny

I’m a little late for this one, but I didn’t want to wait until next April to talk about Rabbit care and how Easter (I love the holiday as much as the next person) does all of our cute, cuddly, critters a disservice.  I’ve also seen rabbits at fairs or carnivals to be won like […]

No one is going to be surprised by this title.  It is a well-known fact that anyone  involved in the animal community already knows.  Dog breeding is out of control.  This is apparent by the crop of “designer breeds” out there.  Yes, I’m talking about you ‘Malitpoo,’ or how about the ‘Goldendoodle.’  Unfortunately, I could […]

Training for Behavioral Problems Pt. 2

"Woah" command

Since the last post I’ve been using a multi-modal approach in training Murcie.  At home, I’ve had to start implementing some guidelines for the household.  One of our problems was that she didn’t have any boundaries.  If she wanted something, I got it.  If she wanted to sit on top of me, she sat on top of […]
