    Collar Color Code

    We are so tired of hearing stories about people who randomly approach other people’s dogs and assume they can pet them. The owners even ask them NOT to approach and the stranger does it anyway – often saying “oh, dogs love me, it’s okay”. Why does everyone think they have doggie magic and dogs won’t bite them?

    For some reason, bathing a dog is one of the most unpleasant tasks that comes along with owning a dog  (for most owners anyhow).
