Haze in Singapore

Haze in Singapore reaches hazardous level on Wednesday 19 June, with the PSI reading hitting an all-time high of 321 at 10pm.
It's advisable to:
- keep all your furkids indoor, do not walk them for these few days until the haze subside.
- turn on fans and air-conditioning to filter out the bad air at home - drink lots and lots of water, as the air is very dry and bad, they will need more water to clear their system. - do not forget to exercise them in order to drain their energy, playing catch and fetch is a good way to do indoor.
- do visit a vet if there are cough or respiratory symptoms

Most importantly, please stay healthy :)


101 Dog Myths 02 - Dogs howl and bark into empty spaces because of spiritual beings

Dog Myths 02 - Dogs howl and bark into empty spaces because of spiritual beings

Many times, when humans find that they cannot point out the reason for certain things that had happened to their dogs, they blame it on spiritual beings. I have seen dog forums where people advice others that spiritual beings are the cause of barks and howls at night! It is kind of annoying at times where we are here trying to help people with dog problems and there someone is replying nonsense, asking the owner to sprinkle holy water and what not.

By far even during obedience and corrective trainings we have never met any unsolved barking / howling case, it is usually the problem with how owners treat t…

101 Dog Myths 01: Online materials are good enough to learn about dogs

Dog Myths 01 - Online materials are good enough to learn about dogs

Let's face it, we have come to an era where the Internet is a need, everything you read in books can be found on the Internet. The question is whether the stuff you read is coming from the same author, usually they are not and because everybody has their own opinions, plainly following online materials can actually do more harm than good to your dog.

A lot of people study about dogs online, and by doing this the brain naturally compile all the information they read into a "book", this is very dangerous if you are still learning the basics. When you mix things up, you are actually incorporating many different training methods and information into your dog, it will most likely get confused with the inconsistency and thus you may see unwanted behaviors caused by extreme frustration.

Online materials are good only if you have a certain problem that you can't find elsewhere, if you have a website that you…

"Our family decided to keep a pet and we were looking for a dog. While searching through the internet, we came across the Blog “ A Red Toy Poodle Story “. It was a great blog with lots of detailed information, especially so for us, who are first-time dog owner.

Trip to NEX Playground - 01 June 2013

​​After more than 2 months, we thought it was time to bring Amber to NEX playground again! This time we decided to meet up with Toffee and his family to train him on some basic interaction as well as introducing Amber to them for the first time.
We had walked and played with Amber for about 40 minutes in the morning, she did really well, even showed some of her tricks to a Malay man, he was watching Amber from a distance and asked me if she knew how to sit, we proceeded to doing a series of tricks after sitting and he was so impressed that he was laughing during the whole performance, we were very proud of Amber :)
