10 Health and Happiness Benefits Your Dog Can Only Get From Daily Walks

 10 Heatlh and Happiness Benefits Your Dog Can Only Get From Daily Walks - RadioFence.com Pet Products BlogHave you ever heard the experts say how wonderful a simple walk is for your overall health? The same is true for your dog’s health! There are vital health benefits your dog can only get from a daily walk, so it’s very important to be aware of what these are and use them as motivation to take those little daily adventures together!

1: Exercise

radiofence.com/blogProbably the most obvious benefit is the exercise component of the walk. Some dogs never leave the couch except to quickly do their business in the same small patch of grass only to hurry back inside to veg out on the couch. Daily exercise is vital to your dog’s health because it prolongs her life and improves her overall health and mental wellbeing. All dogs, no matter how big or small, should get at least 30 minutes of exercise a day. Bigger dogs require more, but taking a 30 minute walk every day is a great way to get some exercise in.

2: Familiarity 

"I think if we put our heads together I think we can remember if we've been here before..."

“I think if we put our heads together I think we can remember if we’ve been here before…”

Dogs strongly desire to learn their surroundings and become familiar with their environment. If your dog rarely leaves the back yard to learn the smells and sounds of the neighborhood, this can cause behavioral and psychological issues and confusion. Imagine your dog seeing the mailman drive by or neighbor kids playing outside and you hear her bark excitedly because she is familiar with their involvement in the neighborhood dynamics rather than aggressively lashing out at them because they’ve encroached on “her territory.” Familiarizing your dog with the people, places, and interactions in your neighborhood provides her with a sense of security and improves overall behavior toward these previous unknowns. 

3. Socialization

How many of us have been guilty of saying “my dogs is much more of a people lover than a dog lover.” This shift in socialization is not a good thing. Dogs need to be able to socialize with other dogs without aggression just like we socialize with other people on a regular basis.

Your dog should have friends too! Daily walks are a great way for your dog to meet other dogs that she would have never come in contact with otherwise. This socialization makes her a much friendlier dog overall and teaches her that meeting new dogs is a positive thing. When she is put into a situation in the future where she needs to socialize, she will do so in a positive way rather than fearing the interaction. 

4. Bonding

You may think that staying inside on a rainy day watching Netflix and cuddling on the couch with your pup is the ultimate bonding experience, but dogs can actually begin to feel depressed or unimportant when they’re cooped up inside all the time. You have plenty of tasks and chores to keep you busy around the house, but your dog lacks excitement when she remains stagnant day after day. A walk is a one-on-one “date” for the two of you that shows your dog that you have taken the time to put your undivided attention onto her and expresses to her that she’s important and not forgotten. 

As you can see in the video, Jem and Zoey light up when I say “do you want to go for a walk?!” We bond so much on our walks that I can’t imagine what our relationship would be like without our little daily excursions! 

5. Exploration

Imagine only seeing the same 4 rooms of a house and the same 500 ft of back yard for your entire life. Feeling a little depressed just thinking about it? It’s in your dog’s nature is to explore, and walks are a great way to discover new smells, sights, and experiences every day that your dog craves. Exploration is so important for mental health and well-being. 

6. Training

Your dog has mastered “no, sit, stay, down” and all of the other indoor commands. But there is so much more! Training your dog not to bark and chase people on bikes, not to eat those mysterious plants that could make her sick, or even just how to react to a car entering her personal space is extremely important. Training your dog to understand how to conduct herself outside of the home makes for a much more well-rounded, street-smart, and better behaved pip.  

7. Confidence

I can tell Zoey feels like her best, happiest self on walks!

We all can agree that we hate seeing our dogs feeling scared, timid, confused, or unsafe. If your dog doesn’t experience other places outside of the home, she lacks the confidence and ability to face any changes when they occur. You want your dog to feel safe, secure, and confident going anywhere with you. Daily walks create a sense of trust in you that your dog will carry with her in everything you do together.

8. Excitement

Chasing that armadillo was the most excitement any of us experienced all day!

Being bored is one of the most frustrating feelings. You never want your dog to lose her spunk or feel like each day is just another empty one that lacks excitement and change. Mixing up the routine with a walk releases so much boredom, pent up energy, and sadness that your dog may have stored inside. 

9. Brain Stimulation

Jem has learned from countless walks to pick her paw up when the leash gets between her legs. Brain stimulation at it's finest!

Your dog’s mind needs stimulation to stay healthy and sharp. Daily walks provide the opportunity for your dog to continuously learn new things and different experiences that keep her brain healthy. 

10. Enjoy The Nature Of Your Surroundings 

Whether you live near the beach with palm trees, mountains and streams, or desert with a slight breeze, there’s something to appreciate about each and every environment around us. Your dog is meant to experience and appreciate the great outdoors, and a daily walk provides that opportunity for the both of you. 

Help Your Dog Love Bath Time in 3 Easy Steps!

Train Dog To Like BathsSome dogs love the water whether it’s jumping after a stick into the lake on a hot day, jumping in the waves at the beach, or leaping into the pool to swim with the family. Other dogs are not so thrilled at the idea of getting soaking wet, feeling the pressure and hearing the noise of rushing water, or fearing that they’re trapped inside a big tub with no escape. Our dog Jem is one of those dogs that absolutely freaks out at the sign of water, so bath time has always been a chore to say the least. 

If your dog is one of those that absolutely hates bath time, fights and scratches to avoid it, and thrashes water all over the house in protest, don’t worry – there’s hope! Every dog wants to hear those two magic words: “good dog!” They love to be obedient, feel comfortable, and make their parents proud. It just takes a little bit of training on our end to get them to that point. 

Luckily there are tried and true methods for training your dog to love bath time and feel comfortable. It only takes a few 3-5 minute training sessions!

Step 1: Practice Being In The Tub

For some dogs, the act of standing in the tub is intimidating enough, nevermind having the water rushing out of the faucet and getting soaking wet.. The slippery texture and surrounding walls are unfamiliar and scary for some. If you practice having your dog just hang out in the tub to start with, this will give her a chance to get used to the environment. 

"Peanut Butter Kong?! Count Me In!"

“Peanut Butter Kong?! Count Me In!”

Putting down an inexpensive bath mat can make all of the difference in the world for your dog. This will make it so the tub isn’t slippery and gives your pup a stable place to stand. Sometimes the slipperiness is one of the most intimidating parts of bath time and can be resolved easily with this simple trick. 

I bought a bath mat for $5.00 that didn’t have too much texture. I didn’t want any of the “massaging” ones that would feel weird on her sensitive paws. 

Step 2: Associate The Tub With A Tasty Treat

The fastest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. The same is true for your dog! If your dog associates being in the bath tub with having his favorite treat, then he is sure to look forward to bath time! It’s best to choose a treat that will last awhile and require your dog to do some work.

Peanut butter solves everything!

Peanut butter solves everything!

A bone or peanut butter-stuffed Kong works great! I let Jem sniff her Kong before introducing her to the bath time to catch her attention. I placed the Kong in the tub, and she practically jumped in by herself to get to it. I placed her in t he tub, and once Jem got busy working on her Kong her anxiety about being in the tub slipped away within a few minutes. While your dog relaxes and works on the treat, gently and calmly brush her so she associates getting cleaned/groomed as a positive experience. 

A peanut butter Kong and a back massage?! Heavenly!

 Repeat this process until she becomes calm, relaxed, and comfortable with the experience of being in the bath tub. Her anxiety will subside as long as you take things slow and practice this process on several separate occasions until she shows signs that she is comfortable.

Time to search the house for more peanut butter Kongs!

Time to search the house for more peanut butter Kong’s!

Jem became comfortable being in the tub and wanted to stay in during this part of the training until her Kong was out of peanut butter, and then she was on to the next adventure! She jumped out of the tub which I was happy about. If I can get her used to jumping in and out by herself, then she can feel like she’s more in control and relaxed. She did so great after only her first session! I was thrilled that such a simple trick made all of the difference in the world for her. And on our first try!

Step 3: Gradually Introduce Water

Rather than turning the faucet on and drenching your pup from the get-go, which can be intimidating, have a container of warm water ready to gently and slowly pour onto the floor of the tub. And before you have your dog get in the tub, wet the bottom of the tub so she can get used to the floor being wet and a little more slick. 

Pouring water indirectly onto the bottom of the tub is non-threatening

 Introducing the water slowly will make your dog feel like she is still in control of her emotions without shocking her with too much too fast. I poured a little bit of water next to Jem slowly and pulled back when she showed signs of fear. When she looked like she wanted to jump out of the tub, I would pause and let her step back into the comfort zone of chewing her Kong. She slowly felt comfortable with me pouring more and more water close to her. She even let me pour it on her foot and the Kong!

Jem quickly became comfortable with more water poured next to her

A running faucet can bother some dogs because the sound affects their ears. Repeat this process of introducing water and increase the length of time spent in the tub until your pup feels comfortable having the water poured onto her side, back, or feet. You can gradually introduce more water until you’ve moved on to having a full bath from start to finish. 

Jem went from a skittish, and scared pup to a dog that loves baths!

Jem went from a skittish, and scared pup to a dog that loves baths!

I was honestly surprised at how well these training techniques worked with Jem. She’s by far our most skittish, nervous, and fearful dog when it comes to water. The trick was to take the training slowly and trust her to show me how quickly she wanted to progress through the training steps. It required me to be patient and confident that she would learn to love bath time at her own pace. I remained calm and positive while giving her positive reinforcement and words of encouragement every step of the way. If Jem the “scaredy-cat” can learn to love bath time, I believe any dog can!

Does your dog love or hate bath time? And do you know any tricks to make the process more enjoyable for both pups and pup-parents?

How Do I Get My Dog To Stop Eating Poop?

How Do I Get My Dog To Stop Eating Poop?Zoey has always had an infatuation with her own poop… and I can’t for the life of me imagine why. What we humans would consider a form of torture, our dogs seem to think is a tasty treat! Why do they do this? Should we be worried? And how can we get them to stop?

Coprophagia is the technical term for eating and ingesting feces. I was relieved to find out that Zoey’s poop fetish is completely normal. Many animal species enjoy the occasional poo-poo platter. 

A Visit To The Vet Is Necessary

In most cases, coprophagia is NOT a sign that your dog has a disease that you should be worried about, but in other cases it can be a sign of an underlying issue. Step 1 if your dog is eating poop is to take her to the vet for tests to make sure she is healthy. Medical conditions that could be causing your dog to eat poop include:

  • Malnutrition
  • Vitamin deficiency 
  • Increased appetite
  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid disease
  • Parasites
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Anemia
  • Neurological disease

Jeez… is that all? That’s a lot of medical issues to worry about all because of one disgusting habit that many of us probably assumed was just “a dog being a dog.” But don’t freak out just yet! Most of the time dogs eat poop for non life-threatening reasons.

Your veterinarian will run medical tests to determine if your dog is suffering from any of the diseases or medical conditions that cause some dogs to eat poop. You will also want to discuss your dog’s diet, appetite, nutrition, and environment with your vet. 

Lack Of Nutrients Causing It?

Some dogs have an interest in eating their poop because they aren’t getting enough nutrients in their diet. Sometimes there are food particles in the poop that didn’t get digested. Dogs smell this and think of it as fresh, uneaten food. They may be unable to digest the nutrients the first go-around and eat the partially-digested particles in the poop to meet their nutritional needs. This is the most common reason that dogs eat poop. It tastes good! Even though we can’t possibly begin to understand how… If you believe your dog is eating her poop because she needs better nutrition, consult with your vet or a pet nutritionalist about what diet is best for your dog. 

The ASPCA suggests making sure you’re feeding your dog quality food. They state that you really can’t find high-quality dog food in supermarkets and sometimes can be mislead by the brands at the big box pet stores. The ASPCA suggests finding a quality pet supply store and looks for premium brands with human-grade ingredients. Always read the labels on the dog food you consider purchasing. Choose a brand that has one or more whole meat sources and no meat-by-products. 

Dogs That Eat Other Animals’ Poop

Some dogs don’t just love to eat their own poop, but they will eat other dogs’ poop as well. Our dog Jem will follow Zoey or other dogs around the yard waiting for them to go potty so she can get her stinky snack at it’s freshest. This is also very common in many dogs, but sometimes more risky than a dog eating his own poop. 

It’s important to make sure your dog never ingests the feces of dogs that are strangers. You don’t know if these other dogs are receiving the vaccinations and preventative care that is required to prevent the spread of diseases. If your dog is exposed to other dogs’ poop that is carrying diseases that puts your dog at risk. 

A Mom’s Natural Instinct 

Moms will also eat the feces of their puppies, so puppies may copy this behavior and keep doing it out of habit and curiosity. Once it has become a habit for your dog, it can be difficult to break. But it is definitely possible with the correct training. 

A Technique To Get Attention

Some dogs will eat poop to get attention if they feel punished or neglected. For dogs, any attention is better than no attention at all. A lot of them prefer to be scolded rather than being ignored altogether. Try spending more time with your dog, go for more walks together, and take car rides to show your dog that she is loved and important. 

Your Dog Is A Neat Freak

Other dogs who like a neat and tidy environment will eat their poop to clean their area. Some dogs think they’re doing a great job of cleaning the back yard when they eat their poop. Pups that have an accident inside may also eat their poop in an effort to clean the space.

How Do I Stop This Behavior?

The surest way to avoid your dog eating poop is the watch your dog when she is outside and clean up after her every time she goes #2. This isn’t always realistic for everyone to find the time and means to clean up after your dog every time. Many people don’t pick up their dog’s poop because they don’t want to dispose of it in the trash can and deal with the nasty smell and contamination. You can get a Doggy Dooley for your yard to make clean up sterile and convenient. The Doggy Dooley gets buried in your yard and chemically breaks down poo so you never have to deal with the smell in your trash can when you scoop the poop from the yard. 

Natural Food Additives To Stop Poo-Eating

Many experts believe that the products on the market that claim to discourage your dog from eating poop don’t actually work. There are liquids and powders to add to your dog’s food that claim to make the poop taste bad to the dog and keep him from eating it. Popular opinion is that these are not healthy to use long-term and don’t actually work. Some people have successfully discouraged their dog from eating poop by adding certain human foods to the dog’s food. Pineapple or foods with sulfur such as brussels sprouts or cabbage will discourage the dog from eating his poop. I’m going to try this in Zoey’s food and see if it works!

Correct The Behavior With A Training Collar

You can also use the aid of a training collar to associate the bad behavior with a correction. Consistency is key with this type of training. You’ll have to give your dog a correction every time he tries to eat the poop consistently for a few weeks until he avoids the poop completely. Your dog may regress and go back to his old ways, so you’ll have to reinforce the training later on down the road if/when this happens. 

What Not To Do:

Most importantly, you should always remember what not to do. We want to correct our dogs’ bad behavior, never punish them in a nonconstructive way. Punishment for an act like eating poop will only make your dog more likely to eat the poop next time as a way of “covering up the evidence” to avoid getting punished again. 

There’s been a belief by many people for years that you should rub your dog’s face in urine and feces when you’re potty training. This should never be used as a form of training, according to the ASPCA. If your dog is eating poop, never resort to rubbing her face in it to get her to stop. It won’t work to put an end to the behavior and can only lead to more problems.

Most importantly, never physically hit or harm your dog as a form of punishment for eating poop or any other behavior that you don’t approve of. Dogs are very loyal being by nature, and they want to please their “masters” if they are given the chance. Communicate with your dog in a way that she will understand the cause and effect of her behavior. Physical punishment is not understood by your dog and will only lead to aggression, fear, and acting out.

Do you have any techniques that worked to get your dog to stop eating his/her poop?

3. Dog Crate End Table

Having a dog crate is a necessity for some, but they often exist in our homes without much thought put into how they look, where they should go in the room, or how they go with the rest of our decorating theme. A dog crate end table has all of the luxuries your dog needs in a dog crate but is also extremely functional and attractive-looking for you and your family which makes it a great gift for you and your dog. No more wire crates that stick out like a sore thumb in the middle of the room!

4. Cozy Cave Pet Bed

A new bed will make your dog feel amazing this holiday season. We know they can get worn out after awhile, and there’s no better time to freshen up and get a replacement than Christmas time. We have such a huge selection of dog beds that it’s hard to choose just one as our favorite.

The bed we’re getting our dog Jem for Christmas this year is the Cozy Cave because of it’s unique design. It’s perfect for dogs that like the burrow or nest in bed. Jem nudges my arm for me to lift the blanket up so she can burry herself and feel warm and secure under the covers. This bed is perfect for her, and we can’t wait to see her reaction on Christmas morning!


5. Dart Interactive Toy

Everybody loves opening a new toy on Christmas morning, and your dog will love you for getting her the Dart Interactive Laser Toy to keep her occupied with fun for hours. Especially dogs that are stuck inside for hours at a time due to the harsh winter weather and need to burn some energy!

6. Car Seat

Dogs love and need car seats for so many reasons. Safety, comfort, anxiety relief, spacial awareness, etc. Imagine being in the car and being too short to see anything that is going on outside the moving car. That can make even the most relaxed dogs feel uneasy even if they don’t show it. Car seats boost dogs up so they can see out the windows. Dogs are very vulnerable in the car without the safety of a seatbelt like humans have. A car seat is the perfect place in the car for your dog to be safe and comfortable for even the longest road trips or just short errands around town!


We bought our Beagle Jem her first car seat two years ago for Christmas when she was just a small puppy and it made such a huge difference for her. She immediately relaxed, felt secure, and let loose for all of our car rides. I loved being able to strap the Console Car Seat to the center console and have her close to me while I drove, and she seemed to love our quality time just as much as I did.



7. Bicycle Basket

Your dog won’t be able to contain her excitement when you present her with a bike basket! Spending quality time with our dogs is priority number one, and any time there is a new opportunity to get out of the house and explore together is exciting. Going on walks is already so thrilling for your dog, but going for a bike ride with the family is a dream come true.  

8. Elevated Dog Bowl

With so many dog bowls to choose from out there, how do you ever know if you’re picking the right one? Veterinarians suggest elevated dog feeders because they allow dogs to eat using proper posture, promote good hygiene, alleviate pain due to arthritis, neck, or back problems, help dogs with megaesophagus that have difficulty swallowing, dogs with digestive issues, and dogs with disabilities. Comfort is so important, and your dog will love you even more for improving his eating abilities.

9. Automatic Meal Feeder

Automatic meal feeders are an amazing tool to have in the house that use timers to feed your dog his meal at the same times every day. Sometimes your schedule gets crazy, you find it hard to be home at the same time every day to feed on schedule, you feel guilty for having to stay late at work, or you get caught up with an emergency. You can have peace of mind knowing that you never have to worry about your dog missing a meal no matter what happens when life gets crazy. Automatic feeders also aid with preventing obesity and overeating.

10. Water Fountain

Research shows that one of the best ways to improve your dog’s health is to get her to drink more water. Water fountains are the best way to encourage dogs to drink more water and are much better than standard bowls. Humans don’t like to drink water that has been sitting out all day, and your dog is no different. Fountains provide your dog with fresh and filtered water all day every day and look beautiful in any kitchen with the variety of colors and styles available.

11. SUV Cargo Liner

SUV cargo liners are an awesome alternative for dogs that are too big for a car seat but still desire a comfortable place to call their own in the car. They’re great for you as well because they shield and protect the carpet in your car from dirt, dander, fur, spills, or accidents.

12. Strollers and Bike Trailers

If your dog is too big to fit into a bike basket, there’s nothing better than a bike trailer for your family. If you love to travel and explore with your dog, you definitely want a stroller that converts into a bike trailer. If you’d rather just have a stroller or just have a bike trailer, there are those options as well. You and your playful pup can have so much fun biking together!

13. Wicker Crates and Cozy Crate Covers

Wicker crates are a great alternative to traditional wire crates because they tend to go better with the rest of the decor in your home rather than sticking out like a sore thumb. If you don’t want to make the upgrade to a new crate, you can still accessorize your existing wire crate to make it more aesthetically pleasing with a crate cover. More importantly, crate covers provide supreme comfort for your dog far beyond what he can get with a traditional crate alone. They give you the style you want and the comfort your dog deserves. Even better, research shows that crate covers reduce barking because they ease stress.

14. Play Pen

Play pens are awesome to have whether you use it at home or on the go since they are very portable. Just when you thought you’d considered every option there is to entertain your dog, we found an amazing video of a pug having a blast with his playpen and about 100 plastic balls. Check it out and see why your dog needs a playpen too! 

15. Pet Steps

Pet stairs can provide life-changing relief for your dog. There are so many instances when we wish they could talk and tell us what they need, and if they could they would ask for a set of pet stairs! Your dog needs help getting onto the couch, bed, or into the car. Stairs are recommended by veterinarians for all dogs to prevent injury and arthritis from excessive jumping and are necessary for small, older, or disabled dogs. There are also pet ramps for easily getting in and out of the car.


There are so many amazing dog products that improve the lives of our furry best friends as well as our own lives tremendously. This holiday season is the perfect opportunity to spoil your dog and yourself. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from our family at RadioFence.com to yours!

Our Dogs Jem and Zoey - Christmas 2013


Four Commands to Teach With A Remote Trainer

Utilizing a remote trainer is often challenging. A lot of people feel awkward because they’re unclear about what to do, however with just a little practice and direction, anybody can learn how to use a remote training collar properly and effectively. When I first began, it even required a couple of days to get comfortable but now it’s virtually second nature! A few people think remote trainers are used simply to correct undesirable habits like digging in the trash or chewing, however you will find numerous good habits you’ll be able to teach and stimulate using a dog training collar. The devices can definitely improve your rapport with your dog.

1. “Sit”: This simple behavior is usually taught in a short time, and you could add an suggested “stay” so that you won’t need to train another command. Simply, tell your dog to sit when pressing the button. Keep in mind, the static amount needs to be on the setting that will get your dog’s attention yet will not frighten them. Having a treat in your other hand, proceed in the direction of your pet and hold it just over his / her nose. As his nose goes up, his tail lowers. When his seat hits the floor, stop pressing the switch. Do it again a couple of times by using a treat, and after that eliminate the reward so he / she simply learns the communication from the remote. See? Now your dog will be able to sit.

2. “Bed”: This can be a good thing to train, since it gives your pet a particular location to go and stay. It also comes in really handy if you have visitors entering your house or perhaps the pizza delivery person is at the front door. While pressing the button, with your dog on the lead, guide him or her to his / her bed and say “bed” or whichever instruction you desire (others consist of place, home, etc.). Whenever he is on the chosen place, cease giving the stimulation. Back away from the location and observe your pet’s response. If he steps away from the bed, move back next to him while once again pressing the button, and repeat the demand until he returns. Before long he’ll fully understand the place you want him during that command.

3. Voiceless “come”: Maybe you have been in a dog park or perhaps open field along with your four legged buddy playing around having a ball, however, when the time had come to call him back you end up shouting with no success? Making use of the vibration or beep functionality with a remote trainer provides you with the capability to instruct your pet to return to you without needing to say anything. This is certainly one thing that every one of my clients love! It is simple to train this once you have taught the sit command. Simply ask your pet to sit and, when he is on the leash, back away from him or her. As soon as you’re a couple of feet away, call him to you while pressing the vibration or tone button. As soon as he reaches you, quit the sound or stimulation and repeat. He’ll quickly recognize that sound or sensation signifies to join you anywhere you happen to be.

4. Off leash “heel”: Among the most typical difficulties I experience can be a dog, that has absolutely no leash etiquette. As opposed to being drug about or maybe pulled to the floor, you may use a remote training collar to prevent tugging completely. While, you’ve got a dog on the leash, press the static button as well as draw your pet towards your side walking where you would like him. Tell him to “heel,” and – when he does as you ask – take away the stimulation. In the event that he starts to pull once more, go back to the stimulation to motivate him to behave. Your pet will begin to realize what you’re requesting of him.

Using these commands you should have a well behaved dog, and every one of them can be trained in a couple of weeks. Don’t forget to have patience and relaxed throughout your training periods. Treat your dog frequently and needless to say provide them with plenty of love to ensure that it stays enjoyable for them. Very quickly, you will notice the improvement in your pet’s behavior and the relationship you share.
