Many of us who love our dogs often wonder what they are thinking. Perhaps we would gain more insight into their minds if we wondered, “What are they smelling?”

Alexandra Horowitz, in her new book “Being a Dog,” says that all dogs have the ability to create "a picture of the world through smell." This is partly because of the design of their snouts.

We want to Congratulate our latest Dog-Ed Saturday Training Classes Graduates!
 
Jenny White, CPDT-KA of Dog-Ed taught two different classes this past month:
 
“Mother May I” was a four- week class that helped families with dogs whose impulse control could use some polishing. The dogs learned how to greet people politely, how to "wait", and how to "leave". The families also gained knowledge of how to use their body language to influence their dog's behavior. Way to go!
