Training & Behavior

After a hard day at work, there's nothing like hanging out in the back yard with your best friend. Creating a fun, dog-friendly outdoor space is easier than you think—and makes a great escape for both of you that is always waiting right outside your back door!
Few things bring more joy and love into our lives than puppies. With every wag and wiggle, they steal our hearts a little more. But inevitably, your new playmate's behaviour may baffle you. If you're picking out a new pup or it's been a while since you've raised one, here are some insights into understanding your new arrival.

What could be more loving or more adorable than a puppy? The beating little heart, the nourishing, lashing tail, the lapping tongue. We couldn't imagine our life without the love and attention of a playful puppy.
