You may be wondering if there is a market for gourmet dog treats. Judging by my own personal success, I would say, "Yes! There is absolutely a huge market for gourmet dog treats!" - but don't take my word for it. Here are the facts:
There are over 300 MILLION people in the United States alone. It's estimated that approximately 60% of American households have at least one dog.

I have been using PetFoodDirect.com for several years and have been pleased with their product line, pricing, quick delivery, and service. I started using Pet Food Direct when my cat Tinkerbelle needed prescription food for his IBD.
The reason I started getting the food from Pet Food Direct instead of my vet was price and convenience. The prices were cheaper than I could get it from my vet even with shipping, so combined with the convenience of the food coming directly to my home it was a done deal.

Why Does My Dog Do The Things He Does?
Dogs have a language all of their own and it has been passed down from generation to generation, much like we humans pass down our behavior to our children and their children and so on.
Dogs use body movement, facial expressions, and vocalization to communicate with us and their environment. Dogs speak to us plainly and clearly in their language, with a little effort you can learn how to speak your dog’s language.

We dog lover’s devotedly commitment 10 to 15 years of our lives to our loving dog companions; it’s no surprise that dogs are on our beds and on our sofas, or that we squeak doggy toys as we tip toe to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
When You Get A Designer Dog
Designer dogs, crossbreeds, hybrids, or designer mutt, what should we call this variety of dog? We have heard of them by a dozen different names but what are exactly are these dogs that come with such a big price tag?
You may know that all dogs have been crossed bred at one time or another to create all these purebred dogs that we enjoy today. In fact, May 21, 2004 Science Magazine ran an article claiming that only nine breeds come from the original ancient stock and the rest of the purebreds have been breed in the last 300 years.
Where Did Dogs Come From?
To be passionate about our beloved Dog companions it is only sensible to learn of their unique heritage. I started at my local library and found close to sixty or seventy book on dogs; training, health, companionship, and books on individual breeds each supporting the awesome benefits and contributions that the domestic dog has given us humans.
I found some controversy as to when our partnership with the dog first occurred. Precisely when the relationship formed between man and dog or man and wolf, is impossible to establish, but the dog was most likely the first animal to be domesticated.
Is My Dog Colored Blind?
Science has established that Dogs share the same 5 senses that people have; they see, hear, touch, smell and taste. Yet some of the dog’s senses are less developed and others extraordinarily more sensitive than ours. Knowing this can help us figure out just what our dogs are up to most of the time.
Long Eared Bassett Hound
What kind of family should own a Bassett Hound? As much as I love the Bassett Hound there are a few physical and temperament characteristics that you should be aware of before committing to a Bassett Hound.
The Bassett Hound in nature is very affection dogs and they will certainly rub slobber on your clothing, couches, and cabinets. The hound will get a drink of water from the bowl and water will be running from their jaws as they lift their head. Bassett Hounds, particularly the males have large loosely hanging lips that sway and swing as they go. They will often shake their heads so the slobber will fly everywhere and on anyone.
The Bassett Hound is an old breed which is a direct descendent of the Bloodhound. The name Bassett Hound comes from the French word “bas” meaning low. The breed was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1885. It has been recorded; George Washington owned Bassett Hounds which were given to him by Lafayette after the American Revolution.
Puppies Are Sweet
I have had the extreme pleasure of growing up with many dogs and pets. My family has raised Collie’s, Rottweiler's, Bassett's, and now currently I have given home to 7 dogs of mixed breed.
Living in a rural area in Tennessee where there is no Human Society, I have found myself in the position of taking in everyone's stray or unwanted puppy. It is a challenge at times but they are members of my family and I love each for their individual style.
