His column is updated every day or thereabouts, so check back to see what on Dr. Dave's mind today.
Every day, your dog lets you know you're the center of his universe.
All that hero worship is reason enough to nurture your biggest fan.
When the wind blows and the snow falls during the cruelest months of winter, don't neglect your dog's exercise plan.
If the weather's just too bitter, find a spot like a basement, garage, or large room that you can clear of clutter to play a version of fetch, or wrestle with Phydeaux.
Both of you will lose some of the blahs with a little adrenaline pumping, and you'll make it through the cold days feeling healthier and happier.
PROVING THAT YOU'RE IN CHARGE
Sometimes it's tough proving to an unruly dog that you're the one in charge.
Here are some ways of communicating with your dog in a way he will understand.
These practices are only necessary for relationships in which the dog seems to be controlling the master, rather than the other way around.
Be consistent about applying these corrections!
