The Dog Writers Association of America held their annual event this past weekend in New York in which awards were handed out in a few dozen categories for excellence in writing and other types of media (books, newspapers, DVDs, blogs, etc.). It is a real honor to receive a Maxwell award (named for the late Maxwell Riddle, a noted scholar and author of many books on dogs) or some of the other Special Awards given out each year. We always like to report on some of the more notable winners in the categories of books and DVDs, and this year that list includes:
Our product feature this week is the Pebble Smart Doggie Doorbell. This doorbell is designed with dog training in mind. With the built-in treat holder (behind the yellow push plate), introducing the dog doorbell to your dog is easy and fun. Dogs can often start ringing this pet chime within minutes. Every time he wants to come in the house, instead of scratching the door or barking, he rings the doggy doorbell.

To accompany a puppy through his growth stages is a fascinating and unique experience, although not always easy.
In this video, Turid guides us through the mental and physical development of the puppy, from the puppys birth to adolescence, giving useful advice on how to introduce the puppy into his new home, and some suggestions of what to do (and not to do) with your puppy.
