How to Keep Your Dog’s Teeth Clean and Healthy

I work as a dog trainer for several local rescue groups. I frequently deal with new pet owners that don’t realize the steps that are involved in proper dental hygiene for their furry family member. If you think your dog’s dental hygiene is a hands-off concept, think again. Dogs need almost as much dental care as their human caretakers.

Brush Your Pooch’s Teeth

This should be common sense, but sometimes it’s overlooked by pet owners. You should brush Fido’s teeth at least twice per week. Always use a dog-specific toothbrush AND toothpaste. You can pick a kit up at your local pet store for around $5. The toothpastes come in such delectable flavors as beef, chicken and cheese, for even the pickiest palate. Never use human toothbrushes or toothpaste on your dog – this can cause irreparable harm.

When you brush Fifi’s teeth, sit behind her, and reach your hand around her front to hold her gently in place. Use your other hand to brush her teeth gently. Just like with your own teeth, brush the front, back, sides and every surface of each and every tooth. Use plenty of toothpaste, but don’t overdo it.

Give your pup plenty of dry kibble to help scrape plaque off his teeth. Feed premium brands, such as Evo, which provide high amounts of protein, low amounts of carbohydrates, and the proper nutrition for a carnivorous canine. Feed your dog the amount recommended by your veterinarian for optimum health.


Another overlooked aspect of doggie dental health is the type of treats that Spot gets. Choose treats that are designed to promote good dental health in your dog. Dentist’s Best treats are a great example, as they clean while your pup enjoys them. Greenies makes some treats shaped like a mini-toothbrush, with nubs to clean the teeth as they are chewed. In addition, beef bones and store-bought marrow bones are great choice. Be sure not to use poultry bones or small bones, these can splinter and puncture your furry baby’s esophagus, stomach or intestines and lead to internal bleeding and death.

Regular Checkups

Just like you go to the dentist twice per year, your dog’s teeth should be examined thoroughly by your veterinarian every six months. This can help stop problems before they start, and identify any problem areas that need to be addressed.

Good dental hygiene is essential for every living being. Take care of your dog’s teeth so they will take care of your dog.

How to Extend a Shower Head Arm

The arm of your shower head is the piece of plumbing that extends from the wall and suspends the actual shower head. Most of the time, the existing shower arm will accommodate a change in shower heads without any alterations. However, if you are particularly tall, or would like to install a rain shower head, extending the shower head arm may become a necessity.

Extending an Existing Shower Arm

If your original shower arm is in good condition, and you are not installing a specialty shower head, buying an extension for your existing shower arm is a simple and inexpensive solution.

Step 1: Remove the existing shower head by turning the head counterclockwise. If possible, use your own hands for this step, using one hand to steady the shower arm. If it is too tightly attached to the shower arm, wrap a rag around the head, then use an adjustable wrench to remove the shower head.

Step 2: Clean the threads of the shower arm with a toothbrush and white vinegar to remove any residual water marks.

Step 3: Screw on the shower arm extension with your hands in a clockwise direction.

Step 4: Turn on the water and check for leaks. If you see a leak, try twisting the shower arm more firmly into place. If necessary, you can use a piece of plumber’s tape on the threads.

Replacing the Existing Shower Arm

If you intend to install a rain shower head, or other type of specialty head, you may find that replacing the entire arm with a new shower arm is the best option.

Step 1: Unscrew the shower arm by twisting in a counterclockwise direction. To loosen the connection between the shower arm and the plumbing, you may need to use an adjustable plumbing wrench for the first few turns.

Step 2: Clean the threads of the pipe that is attached to the wall with an old toothbrush and white vinegar. Remove any existing plumber’s tape. Rinse and allow the threads of the pipe to dry completely before continuing.

Step 3: Apply plumber’s tape to the threads. Screw the new shower arm into place. Click here to find a Plumber in Chino Hills, CA

The Answer to Getting Your Dog to Stop Barking!

We have a lot of dogs, and it seems that whenever one dog barks, they all start barking. In fact, they bark when they hear a noise, they bark when we come into our own home, and sometimes if they feel like being naughty, they’ll even bark at us.

The barking became non-stop, and especially would suck early in the morning if God forbid the neighbor went outside to start his car to go to work.

We figured we were at a loss, and that nothing would stop it. No matter how much we yelled at them to be quiet. However my brothers girlfriend recently told s about some black box that she actually considered magic. She stated this black box would shut her dogs up immediately. That this magical black box was so effective that just showing it to them would shut them up, without even having to press the button.

I didn’t believe it for a second, but seeing that she swore by it, I went on my quest to finding this black magical box that would shut the dogs up.

We hit up our local PetCo seeing that if anyone carried such a magical device I would be them.

We came across the PetSafe Ultrasonic Pet Trainer for $59.99. Very pricey, but if it didn’t work we were promised a full money back guarantee.

Barking dogs are noisy to the ears.

The PetSafe Ultrasonic Pet Trainer was not necessarily a box. It was slimmer and sleeker than the one she had described to us, and it also came with not only a negative tone, but also a positive one. So basically whenever the dogs went haywire we could press the N button at the top, or the P button below that for positive reinforcement.

The PetSafe Ultrasonic Pet Trainer did not come with batteries though, so we had to go back out fr a square battery before using it.

Once we had the battery installed we headed home and tested the remote out.

Immediately as we entered the door, the dogs began their usual ritual of ‘who can bark the loudest, and the longest’. However the moment I hit the N button, they all backed off and shut up.

I stood there amazed and in shock. Had this $60 device truly, finally brought peace to the world? Oh my God had it ever!

Ever since getting the PetSafe Ultrasonic Pet Trainer, we have found that the dogs rarely bark whenever someone comes into the house now. They don’t have random barking contests anymore, and finally the house is actually quiet!

What is also phenomenal is that when they do bark, we don;t even have to press the button anymore, we simply have to show it to them, and I never thought that something as simple as a small black remote could bring such peace and quiet.

Now as far as the negative tone goes, when you press it, you should not press it for longer than 2 seconds. Also when you press it you will hear a nothing but a small clicking noise.

When the P button is hit, the dogs don’t seem to mind, and our Bull Terrier actually wags his tail and comes near whenever he hears it. The P tone is a bit louder to the human ear, with a small humming ring noise to it. Again, don’t press it for longer than 2 seconds.

But definitely press down on it quickly for whenever your dog does something good.

In the past 2 weeks we have owned it, the PetSafe Ultrasonic Pet Trainer has been nothing but a blessing in our home. The dogs listen more now, they do not have bouts of barking spells, nor are they aggressive whenever someone comes home.

I cannot stress it enough, if you are having an issue with a barking dog, a dog that jumps on people, than the PetSafe Ultrasonic Pet Trainer is the answer to all of your dogs behavior problems.

I highly, highly recommend this one. It has not failed us yet.

If you feel an immediate need for one you can find it at PetCo, however if you look for it online by googling the name PetSafe Ultrasonic Pet Trainer, you can scoop it up for under $30.00.
