    Hi Karen!

    Oh I don't really know, I've looked over the internet for anything I hadn't heard before and I just wanted to see if any one on here had something to share. It could be grooming or training or anything really.

    Training tips - figure out what you dog's most favorite thing is - food, a squeaky toy, ball - and use that as the lure/reward as well as tons of praise/ Then after a bit, you can get away with just using the praise!

    And one from the radio show that I never knew! Have a dog? Live in North America? Buy the biggest cheapest bottle of Listerine when it is on sale and keep it on hand ... it is a great skunk smell remover!

    That listerine thing is pretty cool! I know that this isn't really a tip but it's a kinda cool fact: Dogs are one of few animals that grow more than one hair per follicle. There is a hair in the middle that is surrounded by a few more hairs called primary hairs. All of these hairs are coarse hairs that can be stood up, also called gaurd hairs. Then there's another set of hairs around that that are softer and cannot be stood up called secondary hairs. Wired-haired dogs have mostly primary hairs and softer dogs have more secondary hairs.
    Have a nice day!

    Best most important tip ever: a tired pup is a well-behaved pup! A dog exhausted from play and teaching and learning tricks is gonna be too tired to eat your couch!
