Today we're highlighting man (or Wolverine) and his best friend. Hugh Jackman hard at work pumping up his gorgeous body at a local NYC gym with his dog Dali, a cute French bulldog, for a little extra security and companionship. I've heard he's filming the next X-man movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past, due out in 2014. There's been some snarky media comments about Dali being his guard dog, but I think non-dog owners often don't realize that smaller dogs can actually be quite protective and warn their owners of potential threats. It looks like Dali has logged a lot of gym time with "daddy" and must figure it's a good time for a nap. I'm sure Hugh Jackman is in there for hours. I just wish we knew what gym this was in NYC and if it has a dog friendly policy for all members.
It always puts a smile on my face when I see dog owners integrating their best friends into daily activities from going to the gym to taking a walk on the beach. When well trained and exposed to social, urban environments, dogs can be really well behaved and fun to accompany us on our daily activities. Even the French understand that a well behaved dog in a restaurant or bar is ok and shouldn't be considered an immediate health threat.
Let's all hope one day in the future Hugh Jackman will put out a video on how to work out with your dog, featuring Dali!

Are you thinking of adopting a dog to bring home to the kids but are not sure which breeds can be considered safe? Because as much as we love dogs and their company, some breeds do not mix well with children. It could be due to several factors like personality traits, dog sizes, aggression, and more. What is clear is that these pooches are the ones to watch out for the most and should not meet your kids.
If you want to adopt a new dog, there is a chance that you may be conflicted between a big dog or a small dog, am I right? This decision can be tough to make for some. So, why not make it easier on yourself and consider a medium size dog instead?
Did you know that dogs are just as much at risk of getting skin cancer as we are? Seriously! Most of them are strongly susceptible to skin damage from sunburns, but not many people think that. And with the temperatures steadily rising, as we get closer to the spring/summer seasons, this can also mean more visits to the veterinarian if we are not careful.
Are you looking for a way to keep your overly-excitable pooch distracted and busy when you are too busy to play with them? If this is the case, then what you need is a dog treat dispenser. This is because boredom is one of the many reasons that lead to dogs chewing up furniture or even acting overly aggressive sometimes.
Are you trying to figure out what is the best dog breed to bring home to your family? There is no question that dogs make great companions, and if you have kids they are a great way to help teach them the value of responsibility and unconditional love. The tricky part is choosing the right dog to blend in with your family lifestyle, and if you are looking for some medium sized dogs, then you have come to the right place!
