Holiday safety; stop door dashing Image by Spiritze from Pixaba y
Keeping your dog safe during the holidays by dog-proofing your home can be a challenging task. Christmas trees decorations and holiday goodies provide constant temptations for our canine companions.

Another danger is increased activity at the front door. Between Amazon deliveries and holidays visitors, it's easy for your dog to slip out the door.

Is there an easy training solution to prevent door dashing?

Breed of the month: SAMOYED

The Samoyed gets its name from the Samoyed peoples of Siberia who used the breed for sledding and herding reindeer. But did you also know that:

  • Samoyeds are heavy shedders and require brushing every day. The Samoyed people used the fur to make clothing.
  • One of their many nicknames is "Smiley dog" because their black lips turn up into a smile.
  • Their normal tail carriage is a curled tail that touches their back.
