Essential Oils for Dogs Tip

Here's a tip on finding the right oil for your dog. Open the bottle and let your dog take a whiff without touching the bottle. In fact, you could use the cap.

Anyway, your dog will actually LIKE the smell of what he needs yet when it's an oil he doesn't need, he will quickly turn away or act as it is awful.

Once your dog chooses what works for him, he only need smell it each day to reap the benefits because those tiny particles go right up his nostrils.

Be careful when using essential oils on your dog's skin. Dogs are more sensitive than we are so those oils MUST be diluted.

Greeting Lulu After a Long Day Away

I recorded our greeting so you can listen if you are so inclined. Pit Bulls tend to be rather loud and talkative, at least mine have been.

When I get home the rules are that I say hello but there is no touching or petting until I change my clothes. Lulu waits patiently while watching me.

Once I'm done getting comfy we have two ways of going. Either a quick rub down and a short game of fetch indoors or some petting and talking before we go outside for pee and romping.

Since Lulu always stops what she's doing if I turn on the camera (how does she know?) I did a voice recording of our greeting and uploaded it to Chirbit. I've never used this website before so we'll see how it goes. Here's the greeting.
