    Keep Your Dog Safe & Comfortable with K9 Ballistics

    Just like every other new puppy owner, I’ve been going through the lovely stages of crate training with Ward for the last few months. One of the biggest reasons for crate training is safety, so today we’re talking about how to keep your dog safe and comfortable INSIDE of his crate! Beds are essential. You can’t expect a puppy to enjoy his crate and look forward to crate time when he’s not comfortable. However, beds can be extremely dangerous – especially for puppies. If you’ve ever had a puppy or been through crate training, you know that they’re destructive, especially when they’re unhappy (aka – crate training.) Beds are easy…

It is important to be overly cautious when choosing which treats to leave your dog with when unattended, because most can be dangerous. Below is a list of Ward’s favorite tried and true treats and chews that are dog mom approved and crate safe! Bully Stick – you can never go wrong with a bully stick.

    DIY Golden Paste for Dogs

    As many of you know, Ward gave himself a bit of an ouch recently. What was first believed to be two elbow fractures, turned out to only be a soft tissue injury (PTL.) He’s been on strict crate rest, pain meds, and anti-inflammatories for the last two weeks, with about two more weeks to go. He’s weaned off the pain meds, but his vet wanted to do a refill of the anti-inflammatory, just to be safe. I’m sitting here thinking … that’s a lot of medicine for a four month old puppy … and anti-inflammatories have been proven to have harmful side effects when taken long term. I personally take…

    Trim Your Dog’s Nails Like A Pro

    A day in the life of my Instagram messages …. “How do you keep Ward’s nails so short?” “Doesn’t it make him bleed if you cut them that short?” “My dog is terrible to get her nails done, how is Ward so calm?!” To answer … I trim Ward’s nails every other day, sometimes once per day when they’re growing faster than usual. ( I supplement my dogs with biotin, so they grow crazy fast. ) No, thanks to my educated trimming, his quicks have receded back, which is why I am able to get so short of a nail. No bleeding here. Ward went through weeks of conditioning as…
