    How do you talk to your dog? What tone of voice do you use?

    Dogs love praise, do you think about this when engaging with your four-legged friend?

    A recent study by scientists in Hungary discovered dogs only feel rewarded when the words and intonation used demonstrate praise.

    Next time you call your dog’s name in a harsh tone because he/she is doing something they shouldn’t, think again.

    I am the sole owner of Happy Pets Boise. I have owned animals for most of my life. After a long career as a registered nurse and patient educator/writer, I decided to focus on my true passion – caring for pets. Growing up in Scotland, we had a number of rescued and wild animals being rehabilitated at our house, as well as our own dogs, cats, hamsters, gerbils, white rat, ferrets, guinea pigs, and even a blind squirrel. I have 2 Boston Terriers, Sophie and Lilly who are great dogs and 2 of my best friends. I moved to Boise in 2005 from Scotland with my husband Joe. I am used to rain, so I walk in all weathers, nothing stops you when you’re from Scotland, we have a saying there, “If you wait on the weather, you’ll be waiting a long time!” I’m an active person with a love of the outdoors. I look forward to visiting your pet for playtime, or walking your dog around the Boise area, rain or shine.
