WHOLE DOG JOURNAL'S 2007 DRY DOG FOOD REVIEW
Not all that long ago, selecting a dry food for your dog was pretty simple. What brand (singular) did your local pet supply store carry? What size bag did you want? And would you like some help out with that, ma’am? Today, making a choice of dry foods can be immensely more complex that is, if you buy into the notion that not all “complete and balanced” diets are equal.

TIPS ON POTTY TRAINING YOUR DOG
Teaching your dog to eliminate on cue is such a valuable “trick” once your dog knows how, you will wonder how you ever coped without it. No more standing around shivering at night, waiting for “that magic moment.”

CANINE CANDIDA
Thirty years ago, even though the systemic yeast infection called candidiasis had already become an epidemic, practically no one knew anything about it. Even now conventional medicine tends to ignore the problem, but word has spread among health-conscious consumers.

CALENDULA AND ITS ABILITY TO TREAT YOUR DOG'S SKIN PROBLEMS
The world of herbal medicine offers hundreds of choices to consider. Some are rather obscure; almost inaccessible to anyone but those who are connected to an exclusive, exotic source. Yet others are within such easy reach that they are often overlooked, considered mundane and useless simply by their abundance.

THE IMPORTANCE OF DOG GROOMING AND SKIN CARE
The primary function of the dog’s hair is as a protective and insulating coating. But if the eyes are the gateway or the window to the soul, the skin and hair are both gateway and window to the embodiment of an animal’s inner health and well-being. Shiny hair, that is, a hair coat that exudes a healthy and lustrous sheen, is an indicator of overall health of the animal.
