They have been considered man’s best friend since ancient humans domesticated them around 15,000 years ago.
Today, dogs aren’t only considered man’s best friend, but the entire family’s best friend.
Dogs provide companionship, unconditional love and sometimes protection.
Even though we love them, there are times when we just don’t understand. Why do they bark at seemingly nothing? Why can’t I keep my pooch off the couch? Here are some podcasts to help you enjoy your dog even more.
Canine Nation: Updated monthly, the Canine Nation podcast provides dog owners with information about dog behavior and how to care for your dog.
