Hello everyone, CEO Olivia here. I’ve been hearing that many of you two leggers are working from home. This is very wise of you to do this. For many of you, this also means your good dog is staying home with you because the doggy day care is closed and/or your daily walker is self isolating too. Again, that’s a very wise thing to do, but your good dog may miss the routine & get bored with being home all day.
It’s impawtant that a good dog gets plenty of physical exercise but it’s also impawtant for them to work their brains too. This also applies to cool cats, let’s not forget them. Boredom can lead to OCD & other “unwanted” behaviors such as destroying furniture. A canine couch potato is just as bad as it’s human counterpart. So here are a few suggestions to keep a dog’s mind sharp & it’s day more interesting while you two leggers work on those report things you do.
Food puzzle toys are invaluable boredom busters. Since my wild cousins spend much of their time scavenging for food, food puzzle toys offer a natural solution to dog boredom. Puzzle toys also encourage chewing & licking, which can have a calming effect on us good dogs.
There are lots of products available that can offer a number of difficulty levels. You can use something as simple as a Kong or ball stuffed with treats to more elaborate devices that require problem solving steps. Suzie Q prefers a Kong stuffed with treats. She doesn’t seem to understand my puzzle game. But I’m very smart. BOL!
You can also put food to work for you by making your good dog or cool cat hunt for it. Hide small treats of food in the house for your good dog or cool cat to “hunt.” Initially, make the treats very easy to find. As your furriend gets better at this game, practice hiding the food in more difficult spots.
A Knotty Toy for Good Dogs can be fun on these long days. They are gnawsome for interacting with your good dog. If you’re working online, it’s good for your eyes to take frequent breaks. Use the time to engage your pup with a game of tug of war or indoor fetch. Nothing makes a good dog happier than bonding with you. Play is a great way to do that.
If we all do our part & be responsible, we will all be stronger on the other side of these times. Please, if you’ve been asked to stay home, do so. I’m serious.
Stay! ( I’ve always wanted to say that.)

The journey from the very start
Live in the present without time
Harmful tension hasn’t to be obvious. A poor posture and disharmonic movement cause such tension and through that stress, threatening our immune system. So posture and movement have a direct influence on our stress-level and, through that, on our immune system. How high or how low our stress-level is determines whether our immune system is or isn’t endangered by it. How we treat ourselves makes the difference whether our posture and movement cause inflammation and wear or whether they have a beneficial and strengthening effect. Autoimmune disease doesn't mean that the body hates itself. My body was just mistreated and reacted accordingly. It wasn't my body that attacked me - I attacked my body by overloading it, and my immune system responded with inflammation in the affected regions. 19 years ago, I was able to end my RA and experienced my autoimmune disease to be a result of my posture and movement. Today I share my experience. There are two ways to move and to give our body posture. Learn to tell the difference: HeilÜben-exercises for everyone. It’s our choice to protect our immune system. Detect and eliminate harmful stress and tension with gentle, relaxing exercises! Good triggers – good reactions: Say „hello“ to your body. In its own language.
