Hand-made fleece tug toys
 With Zuzu at our house, we needed a toy that was long enough we could play tug with her without her grabbing our hands or just redirect her from “puppy attacks” on us. Our fleece tug toys are perfect for playing with nippy puppies or any dogs who like to play tug. Tug is a great game for learning self control, drop it and to NOT grab human hands when playing. Our tug toys sell for $15.



Dehydrated beef (jerky) treats
As many of you know, we feed our dogs a raw diet and prepare our own food. Given all the dog food and treat recalls over the past several years, we like knowing exactly what our dogs are being fed and where the ingredients are sourced. So we now also make our own treats, including dehydrated beef jerky. Made from 100% grass fed beef from local Colorado ranches where cows are treated humanely. Since we do not use any additives or preservatives, treats must be refrigerated or frozen. Our treats sell for $13 per 6 ounce package. Please contact us about delivery options.  



The ZUZU CHRONICLES


Zuzu, a greyhound at 5 months old

We've added a new puppy to our household!  A local greyhound rescue group that we work with received a pregnant foster and they asked us to adopt one of the puppies.  We have named her Zuzu (the name of one of the characters in the movie, Its A Wonderful Life). We post as much detail as possible about how we raise her, including not just training, but covering areas including the food we feed her, dental and nail trimming care, socialization, crate and house training and more.  Click here for a listing of these posts.

Is walking your dog a drag?

I am a firm believer that dogs should be walked EVERY day. While there are exceptions, of course, the majority of dogs don’t get walked nearly enough. Normally, we walk our dogs TWICE a day, though sometimes during the shorter daylight hours of winter and the heat of summer, we only get in one walk a day.

What size crate for a puppy?

While not everyone uses crates with their new puppies, most of us do. Crates can be a safe place for puppies to be confined when we can’t be watching them. It can help prevent housetraining accidents and destructive chewing, but it also can help keep puppies safe from harm when we’re not right there.

Who are your dog’s friends?

Most puppies and young dogs love to meet new dogs and make new friends. There’s a reason that most dogs in day cares and at dog parks are adolescent dogs. They are more active, more outgoing (generally) and enjoy making new friends.
