5 Features Required in Comfortable Shoes For Walking Your Dog

While dogs are man’s best friend, they will rely on you to take them on their daily walks. When it comes to walking your best friend, you will want to wear comfortable shoes. You never know when your dog will suddenly want to run. If you are wearing improper shoes, this could turn into an uncomfortable situation. You do not want to be that person that is running after your dog in a pair of heels.

Just because you are wearing a pair of tennis shoes or running shoes does not mean they are comfortable, or the ideal walking shoes. Walking shoes are different from running shoes due to the different type of contact your foot has with the ground. When you are walking your foot, is constantly on the ground. As opposed to when you are running, and there is a split section when your foot is airborne. When you are, searching for that perfect pair of comfortable shoes or walking shoes you will want to make sure that they have the following features.

1) Cushioning – since your heel is the first to make contact with the ground walking shoes will need to have a significant amount of heel cushion. The heel cushion will need to absorb the forceful impact of each step. There also needs to be a thick layer of cushion between your shoes surface and the in sole of your shoe. The cushion should be able to withstand 300 to 500 miles of walking.

2) Flexibility – your shoe must be able to naturally bend with every step you take. Every foot motion will have a certain amount of bend; comfortable shoes will bend along with your foot. If your shoe does not bend, you will experience a substantial amount of pain. Not only will a non-responsive shoe cause pain it could also have a negative effect on the bones in your feet.

3) Stability – the back of your shoe will need to support your foot. The back at your shoes should be sturdy and well-built. This is different from sneakers, where the back of your shoe has enough give to allow you to easily guide your foot into your shoe using your finger. If the back to your shoe is collapsible, it is not providing you the support you need.

4) A good fit – when it comes to comfortable shoes you need to take vanity out of the equation. The perfect shoe will have approximately enough space to stick your thumb between your longest toe and the edge of your shoe.

5) Air conditioning – your feet will need to breathe in your shoes. A good pair of comfortable walking shoes will provide significant airflow throughout the shoe. Most walking shoes are made with a synthetic upper or leather upper. Most of these materials do not provide natural airflow. Therefore, you will want to look for some form of mesh vents on the side of the shoe.… READ MORE ...

Cancer – The Dreaded Death Sentence for Dogs

The word cancer sends chills up our collective spines as we are given the news about a lump or a growth or an enlargement in any area of our body. Sometimes there is no enlarged organ or tissue, but we just are not feeling right or strong or our health is not what it used to be. We sometimes can even be weaker than normal and have no appetite.

Maybe we are getting sick more often that normal or that is expected during times of the year when we are normally healthy and active. Maybe we just do not feel like doing the things that we normally do and there is no emotional or psychological explanation for our malaise or lack of energy.

Cancer is a term that has come to be known as a “death sentence” for most of us. When reading early obituaries or death certificates when doing family history research, quite often the cause of death is listed as cancer. For normal cells to change and not respond to the normal control and feedback mechanism that the body employs to control cell growth and division there has to be some kind of change in the chemical structure of the cells that is passed on to other daughter cells during the process of cell division or mitosis.

This loss of control or the abnormal division process creates cells and groups of cells that are under their own control and do not respond to the signals the body gives normally dividing cells to divide or to stop dividing or to grow or not to grow. The mechanisms that develop to have this control mechanism not work are partially known, but mostly the sequence and frequency of this developmental process is still to be discovered.

The center of this process is in the genome of the cell. The chemicals and molecules that make up the genetic code of normal cells have programmed into them the response and feedback mechanisms necessary to have the organism develop as needed and in an expected sequence to the adult form with all of the parts and organs working properly.

When something disturbs this process in the genetic code and the code is changed, the normalcy is lost and the cells that are present are in control of their own destiny and do not respond to normal signals given to them by the body for maintenance and growth. Sometimes these cells just grow in the local area and change by simply dividing and expanding in the space where they begin. If they do not spread to other areas by way of the lymphatic or circulatory system, then we consider these benign growths. The first thing that we check is all of the regional lymph nodes when we do a physical exam. If they are enlarged, then we already know that the tumor has spread throughout the body.

Cancer can be treated, usually by surgical excision of the lump, but sometimes conventional treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation is used. What we have to do is look at the cost and the potential for quality of life as treatment would progress and then make the decision to treat or not to treat based on what is good for the dog.… READ MORE ...

Your Dog Needs a Dog Life Jacket

People aren’t the only ones who fall victim to drowning. Unfortunately, even dogs do. So before you take them for a boat ride or for a swim, it’s important for them to be equipped with the right gear to keep them safe. But instead of hooking them up with another person’s life jacket – which could be ill-fitting in size – they need to be equipped with something more appropriate. And that’s a dog life jacket.

Constructed based on the dog’s size and breed, the dog life jacket can provide your pets the buoyancy and security needed to keep them safe whenever they happen to be near or in the water. It comes in different sizes depending on your dog’s measurements. This includes small, medium, large, and extra large sizes. Due to their variety, the jacket is perfect not just for ordinary house pets but also for working dogs as well. Each one is made from vinyl-coated foam to ensure that your pets stay afloat no matter how far they swim. It even comes with safety buckles made from heavy-duty materials to keep them from breaking. That way, you’ll be able to secure the jacket to your pet without worrying whether it will fall off or not. As a final touch, this safety device comes equipped with a breathable mesh for your pet’s underbelly. This lets air in and allows for a quick drying. Additionally, this feature reduces the chances of chafing.

Whenever we bring our dogs to the beach or have them ride a boat, we need to ensure that they’re suited up with the right gear. And you can’t go wrong by having them wear a dog life jacket. This will allow them to avoid any mishaps regardless of whether they’re on a boat or they’re frolicking on the beach.… READ MORE ...

Exotic Pets Really Aren’t Difficult To Care For

Dogs Bring a Lot of Joy to People

Dogs bring a lot of joy to people, which is why they call them man’s best friend, right? In addition to the joy they bring us as owners, there are also a lot of benefits beyond just the happiness, especially when kids are involved.

Dogs teach your kids responsibility.

Everything from feeding to walking to bathing has to happen for a dog, so why not let your kids take on some of the responsibility. Teaching them to put their clothes away so the puppy doesn’t eat them to making sure the dog always has water in his bowl is an excellent way to give your kids simple, yet important chores. Additionally, since the clothes being eaten is inevitable, you might want to have extra clothes handy.

Dogs teach your kids to love and care for other animals and people.

Just by allowing their hearts to open for an animal, helps them to open their hearts to others. They will better understand the value of life and all that live in it.

Dogs give kids a sense of security.

Dogs are meant to act as protectors, guardians of their home. Even the tiniest ones have “big dog syndrome” from time to time and this added protection allows kids to feel safer in their own home. Giving your kids a reason to feel safer at home is always a plus in this parent’s eye.

Dogs give them companionship when they lack it.

Some kids tend to keep to themselves more than others and some just prefer their books over their buddies. That’s not only perfectly normal but also okay! If a dog is present in the home, he can still give the child friendship when he may not have a human to share it with.

As a dog owner and mother, I know that we will always be a dog home. Aside from the joy they bring my husband and I, I see how happy they make our children and that alone makes me happy.… READ MORE ...
