Nom Nom Dog Food Review | Our Experience with the Fresh Dog Food Subscription Service

Nom Nom Dog Food Review | Our Experience with the Fresh Dog Food Subscription Service

February 17, 2021

In 2019, Mike and I (Steph) came across Nom Nom fresh dog food. Now, it is a regular part of our dachshund Django's diet. It's impossible to resist feeding Django Nom Nom when he literally does a little dance every time we open a Nom Nom sleeve and pour it into his dinner bowl.

Do we only feed Django Nom Nom? Nope. We like to feed Django a variety of high quality dog foods—Nom Nom being one of them. Django's most common meal is a mix of high-quality dry dog food with nutrition-dense, freshly made dog food (aka Nom Nom).

In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we provide an honest review and comprehensive overview of Nom Nom. We include pricing estimates for various breeds and a 50% off Nom Nom promo code for your first order. All opinions are our own and based on our own personal experience feeding our sausage dog Django.

How To Socialize Your Puppy at Home During Covid

February 10, 2021

Puppies need to be socialized between 3 and 16 weeks old. Socialization is not the same thing as exposure. Simply introducing your pup to new people, animals, objects, and places does not mean he will feel safe around them in the future.

Whether you are social distancing because of COVID-19 or prefer staying at home, you can introduce your dog to people, animals, objects, sounds, smells, and surfaces. We teamed up with Empire of the Dog's founder, Denise Harmon, to come up with more than 100 ways to socialize your puppy at home.

A Dog-Friendly Road Trip From San Francisco To Los Angeles to San Diego

January 13, 2021

In June 2016, Mike and I (Steph) packed up our tiny New York City apartment and put almost everything we owned into storage. We flew to the Pacific Northwest with two suitcases and our long-haired dachshund, Django. Over the next 10 months, Mike and I worked remotely, lived in both Oregon and Southern California, and spent almost all of our free time adventuring, hiking, and camping with Django. One of our all-time favorite dog-friendly adventures was a road trip down California's Pacific Coast Highway.

In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we highlight the best dog-friendly places to visit along the Pacific Coast Highway. Although the PCH technically ends just north of San Diego, we include our favorite pet-friendly beaches, parks, camping grounds, and vineyards to visit on your next road trip from San Francisco to San Diego. We also include an interactive Google Map highlighting each dog-friendly attraction along the route.

How to Prevent Your Puppy from Nipping and Biting

How to Prevent Your Puppy from Nipping and Biting

December 30, 2020

When we brought Django home in 2015, he had 28 razor sharp puppy teeth. Like a human baby, Django explored the world by putting objects into his mouth. Although we (Mike and Steph) always tried to direct Django's chewing energy towards puppy-safe chew toys, Django would put things in his mouth and chew on items he wasn't supposed to. Since Mike and I were a part of his world, he inevitably started nipping and biting our fingers, hands, and toes.

While mouthing is completely normal during puppyhood, it is important to let your puppy know what is and what is NOT allowed to be chewed on. Why do puppies gnaw on everything? How do you keep your dog from biting you? Are there outdated training techniques you should avoid? When should you seek professional help for your four-legged friend?

We spoke to Denise Harmon, the founder of Brooklyn-based dog training and consultant company Empire of the Dog, for tips on preventing puppy nipping and bitingHere is everything you need to know.

How to Train Your Dog To Ring a Bell To Go Potty Outside

December 23, 2020

When Mike and I (Steph) got our dachshund puppy Django, we were over the moon in love with him. Our adorable little puppy was playful, adventurous, mischievous, and the best cuddler in the world. He, like most dachshunds, was also notoriously hard to housebreak.

Django, like all puppies, had regular "accidents" before becoming fully housebroken. While some dogs can learn to go potty outside by the time they are 3-4 months old, other dogs may take longer to train. Django was 7 months old when he finally stopped peeing in our Brooklyn apartment. What helped us teach Django that going potty was an outdoor-only activity? Dog bell training.

Training your puppy or adult dog to ring a potty bell to go outside allows your dog to easily and clearly communicate when he needs to go to the bathroom. Dog bell training is convenient for both you and your dog and helps prevent accidents. But how does dog bell training work? We sat down with Denise Herman, the founder of Brooklyn's Empire of the Dog, to walk us through the training process.

Flying with an Emotional Support Animal from the United States to the United Kingdom

December 01, 2020 4 Comments

Travel has gotten relatively seamless for frequent flyers with Emotional Support Animals (ESAs). All major U.S. airlines permit ESAs on board, and an ever-growing number of international hotels now have welcoming pet policies.

When Mike and I (Steph) took ourwell-traveled dachshund Django to France and Italy, making travel plans and flying with Django overseas was a breeze. Flying to the European Union from the United States with a dog in-cabin is relatively easy, but what about flying to the United Kingdom? When Mike started working for a UK-based company, we started planning a family trip to London with Django. Unfortunately, we quickly learned that flying with pets in-cabin to the United Kingdom is not permitted except (and this is a big except!) for Service Animals and Emotional Support Animals.

Are you looking to fly in-cabin with an Emotional Support Animal to the United Kingdom? Here is everything you need to know.

In 2019, U.S. pet owners spent more than $1.5 billion on insurance. More than 2.5 million cats and dogs were covered, according to the North American Pet Health Insurance Association.
