This edition is being released on March 5th, which is actually National Sportsmanship Day. Without further ado, let's highlight some MVPs (Most Valuable Puppies)!  Blue’s Clues This one was brought to my attention by my cousins who...

Dogs Are People Too: Puzzled Edition

Hi everyone!  A moment that lives in my mind rent-free is the time my friend got a slow feeder bowl for her dog. She filled up his new bowl and sat it in front of him where he proceeded to look at us like “are you serious?” and flipped the bowl to eat off of the floor.  That was not the day his eating slowed down as needed.  It was the day I learned that meal dog toys like slow feeders, puzzle feeders, and lick mats actually burn energy on top of keeping your dog mentally stimulated. Along with the...

Dogs Are People Too: Indoor Edition

Hey everyone! Honesty time: when I was thinking about what I wanted this issue to be about, my mind just kept going to how cold I am. If you live in a place where you don’t have to scrape ice off of your car windows, I’m extremely jealous. Outside of our little world, dogs are affected by the cold weather too. Smaller dogs may need (adorable) sweaters before braving the outdoors. There are also plenty of cold weather dogs that refuse to come back inside once they’re in their element, like Newfoundlands and Great Pyrenees (aka the big floofs). I...

  Volume 11   Hey everyone! I hope anyone celebrating Thanksgiving had a safe, food-filled day with loved ones. What you may not have realized is that following the post-turkey haze is actually another important day - Giving Tuesday! Giving Tuesday has been around since 2012 and it’s a whole day dedicated to focusing your energy toward making a difference. Donating and volunteering are common practices to celebrate this offset to holidays that tend to get in the spotlight due to the greediness that can occur.  You may know this, but here at DOG iD we put purpose over profit....
