Finnjury

Whenever Finn plays too rough and scratches or bruises us, we call it a Finnjury. Well, this time Finn gave himself a Finnjury. The pathetic little guy wouldn’t leave it alone so we had to cone him :/ He wasn’t very excited about the situation…

Easy Walk Harness Padding

The pups love to go for walks. And when I say love I mean LOVE with a capital everything and rawhides on top. We use a halti collar with Zoe. She’s a pro when she has it on. Finn on the other hand… we’re still working on. He chewed his way through his halti twice, but still pulls too much for just his regular collar.  So… we got him an Easy Walk harness.
