Which Type Of Dog Is Best For Me? Puppy Or Adult Dog?

230fd3c499b75768bbeae3ad4cc7f4f2Let’s face it, puppies are adorable and when deciding to bring a pet into your life, seeing puppies melts even the toughest of hearts. Having to choose between getting a puppy vs an adult OR senior dog can be difficult because each have their pros and cons.

When considering a puppy, the advantages are obvious – they’re adorable, sweet, cuddly, and training them from the get-go can be a lot of fun. However, choosing an already trained adult dog definitely has its advantages.

Here are few things to consider when choosing between getting a puppy vs an adult dog:

  • Puppies are work and lots of patience is highly required during the potty training phase. Expect 3 a.m. outings outdoors, long walks daily and endless hours of play. With these things in mind, the end result is worth every second you spend with your little pup!
  • 291251d66d00565120d1f966513e91caPuppies are a great introduction into homes with young kids OR energetic family environments where there’s a lot of available play time.
  • A grown up dog is a perfect choice for situations where low key adults or retirees want love and companionship and really don’t have the energy for a young puppy.
  • Rescue dogs are also a wonderful way to go. Why not give a rescue dog a second chance? Many come from broken homes or abusive environments. With just the right amount of patience, will and care, your little rescue pet could easily become quite the little gem!

026ddfa5998c7ddddf56e970223b3c88Any way you slice it, dog ownership is work but worth every single second of invested time.

Weigh out the pros and cons and remember to enjoy and have fun with your pet(s)!

TOP 5 Reasons Why Dogs Are Good For Your Health!

59b3bdce316193464da732e13cd9be67Owning a pet can be a life changer. The relationship that develops between a dog and its owner grows and develops as years go by. We can learn a lot from dogs such as loyalty, friendship and how to take care  of ourselves and others. Just like humans, dogs feel emotion. Their loyalty, intelligence, devotion and affection are incredibly rewarding and for dog owners, nothing could be more enjoyable than a long walk in fresh air with our pets or relaxing at home in each other’s company.

Screen Shot 2015-04-06 at 4.58.45 PMOwning a dog can be great for your health. Here are 5 reasons why:

  • You spend more time outdoors. This forces most us to get away from our devices, computers and TVs and get outside enjoying long walks and runs with our furry pals.
  • You become more social. If you’re feeling a little isolated, getting out talking and meeting other dog owners is a rewarding and refreshing experience.
  • Learn to relax. If yoga or meditation isn’t exactly your thing, being with your dog during downtime can relax the noggin’ and stimulate calmness.
  • Practice patience. If patience isn’t your forte, playing with your dog or teaching them tricks is a lesson in patience. Try it, the rewards are endless.
  • Become physically fit. If the gym or busy fitness outlets turn you completely off, running or taking brisk walks with your dog can get you (and fido) into shape in no time!

Selfies Aren’t Just For People, Dogs Love Them Too!

Did you know that on November 18, 2013, the Oxford English Dictionary pronounced “Selfie” the word of the year? Whether you’re part of selfie culture or choose to balk at that whole thing, selfies have assumed a place of privilege out there in the digital world. For many, taking selfies is a harmless past time and much like with Polaroid, is considered a method for capturing a moment in time.

Ruckus Dog has decided to dedicate this blog to “doggie” selfies just cuz they’re funny, creative and downright FUN!

Enjoy!

Keep Your Furry Friends Happy. Pet Trends For 2015.

Screen Shot 2015-01-04 at 3.07.54 PMTrends. Whether you follow them or not, they come and they go. We often don’t know what to make of them. Should we follow? Pay attention? Trends can be fun to test and try out as ridiculous as some may seem.

What’s on the plate for 2015 as far as pets go?

Here’s what we’ve come across recently, in case you were curious!

Dog Resorts. These locales are created specifically for pet owners who need a place to send their furry friends during the day while at work, or overnight while at play. These places offer new takes on kennel care and offer a more luxurious, sociable experience for pets. Screen Shot 2015-01-04 at 3.07.33 PM

Natural High End Pet Foods. Many new trendy boutique style pet shops are carrying high-end, all natural food products such as baked treats and canned wet food. These items have little to no preservatives and aren’t necessarily lackluster or bland either. The ingredients and formulas have been perfected compared to some of the offerings of the past. If you’re a health nut, following the same nutritional path for your furry friends is definitely the way to go.

Natural Holistic Grooming Products. Now it may seem a bit ridiculous however holistic grooming products are coming up the ranks such as blueberry dog facials and anti-itch oatmeal based sprays. Again, if you see a product you wouldn’t dare try on your own person, apply that same thinking when it comes to your precious pets.

Upscale Spa Services. Ever thought about taking your pet to a dog spa? How about a massage? They are out there!

Screen Shot 2015-01-04 at 3.09.01 PMSelf-Serve Dog Wash. Self-serve dog washes are hugely popular. Just imagine not turning your bathroom into a disaster zone each time you have to wash your pooch!

Not all of these trends may appeal to everyone but they sure can be fun!

Wags and wiggles all around, happy 2015!
