I don’t care if your dog is friendly - - While competing this weekend we ran into the same issue everyday. Off leash “friendly” dogs. This was a DOG competition, where the rules are the same. Keep your dog on a leash! - - I had to advocate for my reactive dog to keep the other dogs safe but that was never enough. I had to yell while my dog was lunging at the end of her leash trying to get to your dog that was off leash, ignoring your commands and running straight for her. - - I had to tell you to keep your dog on leash, while you waved your leash at my face and said you have a leash. - - I don’t care if your dog is friendly. I don’t want to greet it and neither does my dog. - - Marvel had another amazing weekend. With two high in class, Senior Title and three Qs towards her Senior B title 🐀

Is your dog scared of going to the vet? - - Taking your dog to the vet when they don’t actually have to go is probably the most important thing to do with any pet! Take your dogs meal and go train in the lobby of your veterinarians clinic. Working on properly greeting people, ignoring other dogs and practicing some tricks. - - Hawk went to the vet today just to hangout. At 4 months old he is weighing in at 20lbs! 💪🏻
Monday mornings aren’t so bad when you wake up next to him.💋 He’s now whining to get the day started or rather to get mom to make him his favorite breakfast. @nulopetfood #nulopetfood#healthiertogether#flatcoatedretriever ✨Also, my new fav summer sleeping mask! @slipsilkpillowcase✨
🛑 🛑 🛑 🛑 🛑 - - Let’s smash this stereotype right now. Placing a dogs ears with tape,glue and moleskin doesn’t mean I love my dog any less than the person that “doesn’t care” what their ears do. - - I have been receiving several messages and comments regarding Hawks ears. Do I care what they turn out like? No. Am I trying to get them to stand on their own? Yes. - - Placing a dogs ears causes them zero pain, and is actually more annoying to me than anything. - - A piece of me wants his ears to stand because they remind me of Loki. If you think it’s because I love my dog less. You’re wrong. - - Run your dog, not your mouth.
📚 Never Stop Learning 📚 - - Something I’ve noticed is how so many people get stuck on how things are and have trouble getting out of that box. I use to be one of those people until I started to continue my education and add more knowledge to my already stellar training methods. - - Dog sports are no different. I am so excited to have started 4 new dog sports this year and can’t wait to continue competing and learning in them. - - Never stop furthering you’re education and never stop learning.
Training a puppy doesn’t mean keeping them on a leash 24/7 and controlling their entire environment.. - - It means proofing the basics and training your puppy for anything. The most important thing I can tell you to work on... is focus. - - If your puppy can look at you and offer behaviors you are making progress! A motivated and focused puppy is going to grow up into a motivated and focused dog! - - Hawkeye came from @elisa4025 ( EC Border Collies ) and he has a lot of herding in his genes 🧬 First session in the pen with the goats and he not only wanted to herd them... but he was willing to give me 100% of his focus!
I never though I would be dancing at my own wedding with my best friend 🐾 - - Graduating High School, College, Living on the road with my dogs and visiting all 50 states... Crazy how life works. It’s been a wild ride and I am so excited to see what’s next! - - Thank you to @thedodo for making the best feature I have ever seen! Hero is seriously a once in a lifetime dog and It’s a true blessing to be able to share him with the world. ❤️
When it snows you have two options... Shovel or make snow angels! ❄️ - - We live in Southern California and woke up to snow!!! The pups were all very happy and little Hawkeye got to see his first snow! - - Have your dogs seen snow?
A lover will give you a kiss . A friend will give you a hug . But a dog will give you her heart! . . So happy to be home to my little fluff ball. Rasquette always can make me smile no matter what. And how could she not? Look at that fur face!! Being away for so long, I’ve missed her a lot. Love that she has not left my side since I walked through the door. . . No love is like the love of your pet. . 📸: @barbaraannsolomon #unconditionallove#doglove#loveher @nulopetfood #healthiertogether
Right now so many are silently fighting the hardest battles they have ever fought in their life. Some do it with a smile on their face while their hearts are severely broken, their mental health is suffering and they are physically exhausted. • • • When I was going through the hardest time in my life, I hid my tears, I forced smiles and laughs and I completely kept the fact that my life was falling apart a secret. • • • I want to encourage anyone who is suffering silently right now to please speak up. Speaking up saved my life, empowered me, inspired others and allowed me to be connected with the resources I needed to get to a place of peace. • • • Be kind to every single person you meet today. I truly do believe all of us are fighting some really hard battles that most know nothing about. Smile at strangers, offer your help, hold the door open always, reach out and check up on people. Your kindness could save someone's life or your anger or impatience could completely push them over the edge. • • • We all deserve to feel at peace and every single one of us can help each other get a bit closer to that feeling🥰.
Now offering #christmas decoration services. We don’t guarantee our work and we will probably make a bigger mess than we started and you’ll have to clean up after us. There is also a good chance we will eat the poop from the kitty litter box and then lick your face and you will love every second of it. #merrychristmas
Question for ya. Casseroles- love ‘em or hate ‘em? Tell me in the comments! . I think casseroles deserve some respect as the OG meal prep! Seriously, what could be easier than combining vegetables, a starch, protein, and a yummy sauce into a dish, baking it until warm and crispy, and letting it feed you and your family for a few days? . With busy weeks and differing meal schedules, I have been leaning on casserole-style dishes, or what I like to call bakes, for myself and Danny. It’s something he can easily reheat on his own, and I can pack up for lunches with some extra crunchy cabbage salad on the side. . If you think this form of meal prep takes too much time and effort, think again! Let me break down how this Spicy Chicken Enchilada Bake comes together... . 🌶 Combine 5 cups of cubed butternut squash, 1 sliced red bell pepper, half a yellow onion sliced, and a drizzle of avocado oil in a baking dish. Cook in the oven until squash is tender. Remove and toss on 2 cups of frozen/fresh corn. 🍗 Top vegetable layer with 3 shredded chicken breasts (use rotisserie chicken to save even more time) and some broken up tortilla chips (I used @beanfieldssnacks ). 🧀 Pour on your favorite jar of salsa and add plenty of shredded cheese. Bake for another 20 minutes. 🍽 Eat immediately, cover with foil to self-serve portion out during the week, or divide into individual containers for easy grab and go amounts. . My cookbook, Meal Prep for Two, has a few other bakes, chilis, and casserole-style dishes that you NEED to include in the meal rotation for you and your boo. The book is on pre-sale now, so grab your copy through the link in my bio! . #nutritiousmeals#eatwholefoods#healthyeating#balancednotclean#dietitian#nutritiousanddelicious#allfoodsfit#eatbetternotless#intuitiveeating#eatrealfood#easycooking#quickmeals#healthierchoices#quickandhealthy#foodfreedom#goodmoodfood#ditchthediets#happyandhealthy#healthylifestyle#balanceddiet#mealprep
Getting into a new dog sport is also so intimidating... new rules, new people and a new environment. I think Herding is by far one of the most chill things I have ever done with my dogs. - - The people were all great, the dogs were all so friendly and the rules, well those were pretty much non existent. Herding is all about communication and the dogs instinct.. it was SO interesting to learn all about this fun activity and watch my dogs do what they were bred to do! - - Have you ever taken your dog to do an activity that requires no training?
