My Dog & I: Rehabilitation

By: HashtagWV / Category: Blog, Janine Lazarus, My Dog & I

One of my theories about dogs and their personalities is that most of what they need to know in order to have a happy, calm life, can be put in place before they are eight weeks old. I know it sounds a little unrealistic …mostly because we don’t even get our puppies until they are […]

My Dog & I: Crate or Cage?

By: HashtagWV / Category: Blog, Janine Lazarus, My Dog & I

Many years ago,  a big controversy was front and foremost in the dog training world… Dog trainers and animal professionals were using a containment system to manage their dogs while working with them, training them and caring for them.
