  1. Dangerous foods for dogs?

    Dog Food
    Hi guys! Recently I read an article that says that dogs should not eat cabbage. It's true? My dog loved to eat cabbage and lived for over 16 years. This is strange to me. What do you think about that?

  5. One-page Dog Safety PDF -- Contributions Anyone?

    Dog Health
    I'd like to contribute to this forum by making a one-page PDF on the subject of "Top Dog Safety Rules", probably 10-12 rules. I think it's needed because there doesn't seem to be such a really good list on the Web. I see either incomplete lists, or article libraries that are fairly complete...
  6. How to Travel Dogs Safely in Cars?

    General Dog Discussion
    Hi, so I've been travelling in cars with Biscuit since he was a puppy. He's GREAT in cars. He just sits in his seat, and he never throws up or gets bored. However, I've been thinking that this is an unsafe way of travelling with him. He has no seatbelt or restraints of any sort, so if I came to...
  7. Investigating Dog Park Safety

    General Dog Discussion
    Hi guys! A friend and I are currently working on a company idea, which would help make leaving your dog off-leash at parks and open areas a lot safer.

  12. Custom Kennels- Input Wanted!!!

    Hello to all the fellow Dog owners out there. I was hoping to receive some input on a Business idea I had. One thing that I cannot stand is when a Dog is just left out in a raggedly 'ol shed in the elements. Do these owners care at all about their dog? Are they not worried for their dog's...
