Lots o' Video

Take a look at N2Paws, featuring Tellington Touch, or TTouch, AND our favourite breed of dog!

And, of course, everyone's favourite puppies: the webcam Shiba sextet.

I've got to give their owners kudos for not trying to capitalize on the fame of their pups and for promoting responsible breeders and ownership. If you go to the webcam page, you can see their disclaimer:

For more information on the Shiba Inu go here - http://www.shibas.org/docs/Shiba_Brochure_color2.pdf

Please do NOT purchase pet store (puppy mill) puppies!
Do your research to locate reputable breeders in your area.

Likewise, do NOT buy puppies over the internet! No legitimate breeder will ever advertise puppies for sale on the internet. Don't be fooled by the misleading ads!

Another option would be to consider adopting a rescue Shiba

After watching the horror story on CBC about puppy mills in Quebec, it's nice to know that there are people out there who are using cute puppies to promote a message of responsible dog ownership.

I've been hearing a lot about "doga", but haven't brought myself to seriously look at taking a class~ until I saw that clip! I can't believe that a shiba would just sit there during the 1 hour class. I can just imagine Winnie running around, barking at us while we're doing poses and then trying to tug the yoga mat from under us... Maybe in a year or two...

promoting responsible dog purchase through cute puppy video? there are disclaimers with every tobacco ads like "don'g smoke. it's not good for you". does it really stop people from smoking?
