you may want to look into medium sized dogs. They are not too big nor too small but just the right size to keep everyone happy and safe.
Finally SPRINGTIME is almost here! We've been waiting for it far too long! That also means it's fleas and ticks season. We hope you've already been using some sort of flea and tick medication for your pooch. Here's our story about why we switched from Frontline to K9 Advantix II.
We initially used Frontline Plus on Kobi as it seemed like "the one" to use. It worked fine at first, but a few years ago we went to Washington DC on a trip to visit friends. Our friends also have a very cute dog and we thought it would be great for them to play together.
It was a fantastic trip and the weather was beautiful, but when we returned back to New York, we noticed (to our shock and horror) that Kobi had some fleas. Kobi is white and in the spring/summer we keep his hair shorter so it was easy to spot these new fleas.
I called my WDC friend and he mentioned that there was a strain of fleas down there in WDC that seem to be resistant to Frontline and his vet suggested K9 Advantix II. They used it on their dog and the fleas were gone within a day. So we ended up doing the same thing - we went straight out and got K9 Advantix and within a day those fleas were gone and we haven't seen any since.
I'm hoping this Frontline resistant strain of fleas doesn't spread, but we wanted to share our story in case it can help any other dogs and their owners. Note: we also don't want to bash the Frontline name...perhaps they will change their formula to address this situation.
All dogs shed — be it small, medium sized dogs or large dog breeds. Dr. Georgina Ushi Phillips, DVM shared some helpful tips on how to manage and reduce dog shedding.
There is something special about medium breeds that most people cannot ignore. After all, when comparing dog sizes, they are usually more physically active than small pooches. They are also more portable than big dogs. In this respect, we have some popular suggestions for you if you are open to adopting one!
