People are stupid!

As an eccentric dog owner, and having spent the last 8 Ĺ years intently researching and studying every aspect manís best friend, I am astounded and sometimes shocked at the level ignorance by many pet owners.  Naturally, as a pet owner you have many opportunities to have conversations about your pet dog or dogs.  Sadly, discovering that too many dog owners, and often in the general publicís misconceptions, I do what I can to educate people about what I have learned, and promote the love and proper treatment for dogs when I have the opportunity.

Despite the fact that there is excellent information in books, online classes, and highly informative websites available, it is unfortunate that there is a level of misinformation and bravo sierra that is commonly being perpetuated on the Internet by food producers, supplement and health care suppliers, pet stores, dog groomers, veterinary practitioners, scientific researchers, and self-proclaimed dog training experts.

It is interesting, but not unusual, to find controversy and debate among the experts.  For example dog training.  Some of the most well-known dog trainers and their methods are often highly disputed and sometimes find themselves facing law suits.

A dogís diet is too often misunderstood and is controversial.  Should you feed your dog dairy products?  How about pork?  Or raw meat?

Toys?Ö. Is a tennis ball a good toy for a dog?  How about cow hide chews?

What does your dog groomer tell you about nail trimming your dog? Or expressing your dog's anal glands?

What does your veterinary doctor tell you about vaccines and flee and tick drugs?

Are the popular pet stores a safe place to take your dog?  Is your local dog park safe for your new puppy?

Every dog owner may have a different experience, level of understanding, knowledge, and feelings about their dog, but there are many facts that are well established about manís best friend.

Whatís my point?  As a dog owner take time to educate yourself about the incredible animal that is a family member and whose quality of life, health, and happiness totally depends on your dedicated proper care, protection, and love.
