How long are dogs pregnant, and other questions answered

November 24, 2020 By admin

This week we scoured the internet to discover the questions people in America – and abroad – are asking most often. From poop to pregnancy and even peanuts, we’ve got your burning queries covered. Are dogs color blind? Technically, no. Dogs can see colors, just not as many as us. Researchers believe dogs can see the color red, for instance, though they perceive it more as a ruddy brown. Green, yellow and orange are harder to distinguish, and appear “yellowish”. Meanwhile, bodies of water, such as the ocean, look gray, while purple is actually blue to a dog. In short,… Read More

How to help your puppy get a better night’s sleep

October 29, 2020 By admin

Sleep: it’s a restorative force that all animals rely on and dogs are no exception. While cats have a reputation for sleeping most of the day, dogs sleep nearly as much, needing between 12 to 14 hours as an adult and as much as 20 as a puppy. The problem with puppies is that they tend to be excitable and anxious, in part because they’re not yet used to your home. As they get older, they often find it easier to sleep, but the early going can be difficult – and that makes your life harder too. Here are some… Read More

Dogs in focus: the Akita

September 29, 2020 By admin

The Akita is a noble breed from Japan and an increasingly common addition to American homes. Once owned solely by Japanese royalty, the Akita became popular in America after World War II, when soldiers stationed in Japan brought them back as pets. So what do you need to know about owning one?
