Pooch PFDs: Why Your Dog Needs a Life Jacket
Jun 15, 2016 - 10:43 AM - by Petguide.com

Dogs are known to be avid swimmers, but itís important to outfit your pup with a pooch PFD. Plus, we give your our picks for the best dog life jackets.

One of the key deciding factors to where we camp during the summer is the quality of the leash free zone available to vacationing pooches. One of our favorites has the most amazing beach for ball-throwing and better still, a large cap rock where sticks can be tossed for dogs that love to feel the air between them and the water before splash down. During one visit when our big black lab Chase jumped in to fetch a stick and just kept on swimming, out past the target and seemingly towards an island a couple miles out. It took a lot of frantic calling to get his attention and ultimately turn him back towards shore, but such is the nature of the water-loving pooch that seems compelled to paddle to exhaustion

Letís face it, while we all love to see our little guys enjoying water sports itís as important to monitor their activities and whereabouts as those of a young child. Rivers have currents, docks have entry points but sometimes few suitable exits for a tired dog and poor judgment calls (ŗ la Chase) can result in longer than expected swims and pooped pooches struggling to find shore.

I know we all love to see our dogs swimming commando but there are times when a little support is needed to ensure his safety and our peace of mind. Thankfully todayís manufacturers have addressed this need via a series of streamlined designs that ensure ease of mobility and superior safety features for our water-loving sidekicks.

Some tips to making the right choice for your pet?

Dogs: So Nice, We Domesticated Them Twice
Jun 07, 2016 - 3:28 PM - by Petguide.com

Great minds think alike. New research suggests that dogs were domesticated separately in both Europe and Asia at different times in history.

So, just where did dogs come from anyway?

When you think about it, itís pretty amazing that an entirely different species has become so closely linked to humans that we treat them like family members and they give us their unconditional love and protection.

But could it be that we love dogs so much that we domesticated themÖ twice?

Historically, scientists have argued that dogs were domesticated in either one of two places: Europe or East Asia. As it turns out, they might both be right.

A study just published in the June issue of Science posits that all modern dogs are directly related to two or more wolf populations and that humans in two different areas of the world both came to the conclusion that these wolves could be domesticated.

The evidence for this, researchers say, all comes down to good old DNA. The studyís authors were able to extract one ancient dogís entire genome from an incredibly well-preserved piece of 4,800-year-old inner-ear bone discovered in Ireland.

When they compared this to the mitochondrial DNA of 59 other ancient dogs, they discovered something surprising: an unexpected and deep genetic split between West Eurasian and East Asian dogs.

How did this all play out?
