The dogIDs team recently ran across Ann Flower’s photos of her dog, Buzz, posing in a hilarious variety of photos. When we found out that she and Buzz live in nearby Grand Forks, ND, we knew we had to learn more about this talented pooch
There’s something heartwarming about animal stories. Cats who traveled across country in a truck muffler, only to be reunited with his owners weeks later. A dog who helped somebody through a tough situation or a pet that gave a child more confidence. But one of my favorite types of stories are those of unlikely animal friends.
Some puppies are harder to potty train than others, but a big factor is actually how consistent the owner is with the training. It’s about rewarding the good behavior, but it’s also about preventing the unwanted behavior.
Even with all the information out there about puppy potty training, new dog owners still seem to have problems. I asked three dog trainers to share some of the most common puppy potty training mistakes. Here’s what they said:
It works, right?
Whining almost always gets a reaction from us. We either laugh at the dog, talk to the dog, pet the dog or even scold the dog. Either way, the whining is reinforced.
Some dogs whine more than others, and sometimes it even becomes a really annoying habit. If you have a dog that tends to whine for attention, the following are some ideas to get the behavior under control.
There are tons of options for dog collars out there. We even have a large selection right here at dogIDs. You may think it doesn’t really matter what type of collar your dog has, or maybe the selection is overwhelming, so you just choose one at random.
To take a little of the mystery out of the myriad options, today we’re going to highlight one particular style of dog collars today: padded ones.
This March, local publication Fargo Monthly Magazine included dogIDs in their article on startup businesses in the Fargo, ND area. The article focused on five different startups in our area that showed a shift in the local business climate.
In addition to a great action shot of dogIDs “Pack Leader” Clint Howitz with his dogs, River and Syrus, the article covers the history of our company and tips Clint would give to up and coming entrepreneurs. We were pleased to be included in the article alongside some truly innovative and inspiring businesses.

Some dog collars are made better than others. The same is true for dog ID tags. Some collars and tags are designed to last the lifetime of the dog, while others may only last a few months.
I’d like to start a discussion on when a dog’s collar should be replaced for the safety of the dog. Feel free to chime in with your thoughts and let us know how often you have to replace your dog’s collar and tags.
“Separation anxiety” is a phrase that’s often used when a dog becomes anxious when left alone. Some dogs with separation anxiety will bark all day when left alone. Others are so nervous they have accidents, and some dogs will destroy property in an attempt to get out of the house.
On the other hand, just because your dog is acting this way does not necessarily mean he has true “separation anxiety.” It could just be that he’s bored or that he’s not fully potty trained like you thought. Or maybe he’s just barking because he hasn’t been taught any other options.
