Tail Wagging Links!

The dogs of Canine Basics want to share some of their tail wagging links with you! Here are some of their doggie favourites!

Hannah says “If you want to make your special human smile, contact Rachel Bird Photography for a pawsome photoshoot!” Hannah gives Rachel five bones for her great work. You can find Rachel here

Shadow gives a big tail wag to “Through A Dog’s Ear.” Through a Dog’s Ear is a series of CD’s that feature piano music specially selected and recorded to calm and soothe a dog. It helps dogs stay calm in thunder storms, car rides, or during any stressful situation. Shadow says “I listen to these during massages and they really help me settle and relax! I give them five bones!” For more information please go here

Caleb gives a big bark to the people at Katoby. This company distributes dog products out of Winchester, ON including sulphate free shampoo (Dermagic line), and bug repellant that is safe for dogs! To check out their products go to their website!

Lucy likes reflexology

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALucy says “For a little dog I can put up a big fight at nail clipping time.  Thanks to Canine Basics reflexology I have discovered that a foot massage is really nice!  Now I don’t mind my nails done at all! (Toy Poodle, age 2)

Canine Birthday Song

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe dogs of Canine Basics have been hard at work on their music skills.  Caleb’s piano skills have truly advanced but Hannah has a ways to go with piano and guitar.  Click on the title of this post to get to the link where you can  hear their rendition of Happy Birthday!


Caleb’s First Recital

calebweb“Not every dog can play a piano but I can!  Piano is one of my favourite things to do.  The best part is to sleep under the piano while someone plays it. I get to rest with my head on the leg of the piano while the rhythm flows all around me!  After awhile I decided I could do this too so I now have my own song called “Caleb’s Capers.”  I debuted this at the Cantabile Music Studio student recital on June 8th.  To see me practicing for my debut click here .Caleb Plays Piano The song is short but I like it just the way it is.  After all it’s not every dog that can play piano!
