The Weekly Walk: Great Escapes

The Weekly WalkArticle of the Week: Furry Houdinis

Live free or woof! That seems to be the motto of the pooches in these three videos. Uninterested in being confined to any one area, they found clever, and in some cases risky, ways to set their whiskers free. You might want to avoid showing your dogs these videos, so you do not give them any ideas.

In the first video, we’re guessing this furry magician escaped to impress a family into adopting him.

In the last two videos, owners set up cameras to figure out how their dogs were getting outside. What they discovered: some dogs like to live on the edge.

Have your dogs found clever ways to escape their “confinement?”

The Weekly Walk: All the Best

The Weekly WalkArticle of the Week: Your Favorite

Five owners believe their dogs are the best in the world, according to this short article. Are they wrong? Can there only be one best dog in the world? Absolutely not. All of the owners are right.

Their dogs are the best in the world for them. Once you develop a relationship with a pooch (or most any pet), your pup will learn how to find and consistently bring you joy. Maybe your dog will inspire you with his determination to happily live on after an accident. Maybe your dog will comfort you on your bad days. You might find joy in her slobbery kisses, his ability to sit quiet and listen to you vent, or the way she rolls around in the snow to make you laugh. You might find a dozen reasons that make your dog the best in the world, and all of the them would be unarguable. So feel free to brag here or on our other social media profiles, and share the habits and stories that make your pup the best. Woof!

Q: How do you keep a skunk from smelling?

The Weekly Walk: Keep On Walking

The Weekly Walk

Article of the Week: National Walk Your Dog Week

LSFounded in 2010 by pet lifestyle expert and animal behaviorist Colleen Paige, National Walk Your Dog Week is an effort to raise awareness about dog behavioral issues and obesity. Paige advocates regularly exercising your dog, saying, “Dogs run away from home because they’re kept sequestered all day long in a crate or a small yard, which only exacerbates a dog’s destructive, aggressive or anxious tendencies. This, coupled with too much fatty food, leads to obesity.” She adds, “October is a beautiful time of year everywhere to get outside. Walking your dog on a daily basis not only increases the endorphins in both human and canine brains {happy chemicals} but it improves the bond between the two.” The main website for the event includes more information about the week’s history, and offers ideas about activities you can host in your area. National Walk Your Dog Week is sponsored by Animal Miracle Foundation and runs from October 1st through the 7th, giving you a few days to step outside with your pups and promote a healthy lifestyle. Woof!
