How to Prepare Your Dog to Fly in the Airplane Cabin

May 05, 2021

Mike and I (Steph) have flown extensively with with our long-haired dachshund Django. Every trip has been relatively easy since Django weighs 14 lbs and comfortably fits in an airline-approved pet carrier. He is also calm, quiet, and loves his airplane-friendly dog bag. We are fortunate that Django is so well behaved once we're up in the air.

Of course, flying with a dog in the airplane cabin is not always so easy. Dogs who have never flown before may be understandably nervous in the crowded airport and once on board. If you have never flown with your four-legged friend before, you might also be unsure what pre-travel steps should be taken.

If you want to take your dog on an in-cabin flight, there are several things you can do to make your trip as safe and seamless as possible. Here is how to best prepare your dog to fly in the airplane cabin.

How to Find a Responsible Dog Breeder

April 07, 2021

The decision to get a new puppy is incredibly exciting. Unfortunately, finding a healthy puppy from a reputable source is not as easy as it should be. Puppy mills, online and offline pet stores, and backyard breeders churn out puppies for quick cash and accept anybody with a check or credit card.

On the other hand, responsible breeders screen new homes, provide guidance after you take your puppy home, and are willing to take back any dog they have produced. In other words, responsible breeders deeply care. But how do you find a responsible breeder, and how do you know that they are honest?

In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we share how to find a responsible dog breeder and the most important questions you should ask them.

How to Potty Train A Puppy

March 03, 2021 1 Comment

When Mike and I (Steph) brought Django home, we instantly fell in love with him. He was adventurous, playful, mischievous, and absolutely adorable. Like most dachshunds, he was also notoriously hard to housebreak. Django had a ton of accidents throughout our Brooklyn apartment up until he was 7-8 months old.

Potty training your puppy can be a daunting task if you have never done it before. That is why we sat down with Steffi Trott, the founder of SpiritDog Training in Cedar Crest, New Mexico, for potty training tips.

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

February 17, 2021 2 Comments

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.
