Good Morning everyone! I hope that you are doing well today. Last Wednesday we launched our newest product, our StayDry belly bands! We are very excited to bring these high-end belly bands to our customers. The StayDry belly bands are sewn all the way around the belly band to create a decorative edge. The power of the StayDries is in the extra layer of fabric that is next to your dog’s belly. It is specially designed to absorb urine as soon as it touches the fabric and it sends it through to the inside layer of absorbent material. This way your dog’s belly stays much drier than average belly bands. A dry belly is a clean belly that doesn’t get irritated! So please check out our StayDry Belly Bands by clicking on this link!
Here is my favorite mug and my Valentines day flowers as I write this morning!
Today I want to talk to you about birthdays...doggy birthdays. I got Riley as a belated birthday present in May. He was born either March 22nd or the 23rd. I really can’t remember! The problem is that as long as I have owned Riley, I always forget to celebrate his birthday altogether!! Even just a little bit! I don’t know how it has slipped my mind the past 8 years! So this year I am writing it down in my calendar and I will plan a birthday celebration to make up for my forgetfulness all these years. Here is a list of ways to celebrate your doggy’s birth!
Good morning everyone! I hope you are doing well today. The weather has been great here in Pennsylvania and we have been taking Riley for some wonderful hikes!
Riley will be turning 9 years old this March. I’ve really gotten to know his personality in that time. I’m not sure when I started talking for Riley, but I think I’, pretty good at expressing whatever Riley is trying to say. I think Riley appreciates it too. I know some of you talk for your dog as well! I have a special voice I use when I talk for him and sometimes he can be very sassy. I thought you might like to hear what Riley has to say and so I wrote down an interview I had with him today. Enjoy!
Hello everyone! Today we have another special treat for you! Cindy Aldridge from ourdogfriends.org has prepared a great topic about dogs that I think is sometimes overlooked but very powerful. She has written "Getting Your Mental Health Back on Track with a Canine Companion". After reading, I think you will agree just how much dogs can affect our mental health. Enjoy!

For many people, struggling with their mental health is more of a challenge than getting over a physical ailment like the flu. Things that they used to enjoy feel like a struggle under the weight of depression, anxiety, or any of the myriad mental health issues Americans deal with everyday. While therapy and medication are necessary for most, people can also supplement their self care with other methods. For many people, adopting a dog helps occupy the mind, create a routine, and provide much needed affection for getting through mental health problems.
Good morning to you! I hope you are having a great day no matter what time you are reading this. Business has been very busy lately and I have you to thank for that! In our last blog I talked about how we were leaving Riley with a friend for a long weekend while we were on a trip. Well it turned out that Riley was a very good boy while we were gone. The temperature in Pennsylvania was in the below zero so they spent time inside playing with Rye’s toys and staying warm. Riley did manage to break out of his crate while Kyle was gone for just a few hours. What a crazy boy! Here is a picture of the Riley-sized hole he created in his soft crate.
Do you see the white thread on the left side of his door? That is where we patched a hole many years ago after Riley scratched through it the first time. Being able to sew when you own a dog sure comes in handy!
Good morning and happy new year to you! I hope you had a great Christmas full of family and fun! I know we sure did! 2017 was a wonderful year full of growth and development both personally and with Coddled Canine. Now that I know that I am capable of doing some cool things, I plan to take those cool things to the next level in 2018. Thank you for your continued support! I wouldn’t be where I am today without you.
Today I am going to talk about dog sitting. As a Christmas gift to each other, Paul and I are going on a 3 day trip this weekend for an event. In the past when we would go on trips, my parents lived down the street and were happy to watch Riley while we were gone. Now that we live in Pennsylvania, it would be much more complicated to get Riley to their house. What do you do when you need a dog sitter?
Good Morning everyone! Today marks one week until Christmas! Do you have all of your Christmas shopping done? Well I've got a surprise for you that may help! Today we have a guest post by Cindy Aldridge. So let's get right to it because I know your time is limited this week!
HERE’S WHAT TO GET THE DOG OWNER ON YOUR HOLIDAY LIST
It’s that time of year when people exchange presents. Whether your holiday calls for gift-giving explicitly or not, our culture says it’s time to go shopping and find the right present for those on your holiday list.
However, finding the right gift isn’t always easy. What makes it easier? When the person on your list is a dog owner. Read on to learn some gift ideas (for the dog and its owner) that are sure to be well-accepted. First, there are some common dog gifts that are best to be avoided.

Good morning my friends! I hope your Christmas shopping and prepping for the holidays is going well! I have almost everyone on my list all shopped for thanks to Amazon Prime. What a great way to shop! Today I want to bring the blog back to the basics and give you a how-to on belly bands for your dog. The website itself will give you everything you need to know about what a belly band is and how it will help you and your dog, but there is a lot of supplemental information to be shared that will help you a lot!
Good morning everyone! I hope you are doing well today! I cannot believe that it is December now. Time is just flying by! I am very happy to say that Riley had his teeth scaling and cleaning last Tuesday and I thought I would take today to tell you how it went.
Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great day whether it is first thing in the morning or later in the day! I can’t believe it is the week of Thanksgiving already! We have a lot of family to see this week and I am looking forward to it very much. Paul, Riley, and I are all very blessed and we are so thankful for our family who supports us! Today I was thinking about Riley’s bark collar. I think I’ve mentioned before that I have not been a perfect trainer and there are some things I wish that I worked on more with Riley when he was younger. We still work on certain behaviors with him but it can be a challenge sometimes. One of those issues is his barking. I want to share my knowledge and our experience with a few different kinds of bark collars.
Good evening everyone! I apologize for the later-than-usual blog post! In all honesty, I have been busy mixed with procrastination and binge-watching Stranger Things. What a great show! So better late than never I suppose! This week I have been thinking about Riley appointment that is approaching in a few weeks. I want to share a little bit of his tooth history in hopes of spreading some light on this doggy problem.
Abbey is the owner of Coddled Canine and her dog, Riley. Join us on our crazy adventures as we journey through this awesome life together!
