When we got Ezra, our Carolina Dog puppy, in September 2019 at nine weeks of age, little did we know how drastically he would change our lives…then the world changed too. I’ve danced around with all my previous dogs, but not Ezra. Let me back up a bit before I go into the dancing further… Ezra focused on the neighbor dogs I’ve learned some things about Ezra that I won’t share here as it wouldn’t...

Pet Stain – Odor Remover Recipe

Recently our newest canine addition, Ezra (our Carolina Dog puppy now 6 months old) has taken a liking to using my workout room as his toilet when we don’t pay attention to his way of letting us know he needs to go out. He isn’t consistent and quite frankly has been the most difficult dog I’ve ever had to potty train. He was trained to go on a pee pad, and often when he is outdoors he is out there for a long time...
