Welcome to the 24 Paws of Love
We believe dogs are more than dogs, they are family. They share in our good times and bad and make the bad times better. We have six dogs, all related, mother, father and four of their kids from the same litter, that because of circumstances are divided into two packs. We share our experience and escapades on our blog of the same name. 24 Paws of Love.
And if six dogs weren't enough we also have two cats who have their own blog called 36 Claws of Attitude. Boxer and Princess Leia give their point of view of living with the 24 Paws of Love or Muttville as they call them.
One of our favorite past times is recreational dog sledding. We'll talk about equipment, dogs and the sport in general from a beginners point of view. We will be focusing on using one or two dogs, for sledding as we are still learning about this sport. We'll also share video, tips and how you can get started in this fun dog sport.
MUTIPLE DOG FAMILY-HOW TO STOP THINKING LIKE A 2-DOG FAMILY
Being a previous owner of only two dogs at a time and then having a litter of puppies that turned into a family of six was a pretty overwhelming change. It took some time to stop thinking like a two dog family and adjust our life and the dogs to being a 6 dog family. We'll share some of those changes we made and how they they helped to unite as a whole.
DOG BEHAVIORAL ISSUES
There's a reason our pack is divided into two. We've dealt with issues such as aggression, dominance, territorial and possessiveness issues. We have had our share of confrontation dog fights and corrective fights. We will share some of the techniques that have worked with these tough problems.
