Effective ways of doing potty training for puppies


Effective ways of doing potty training for puppies


No matter how good you are or how experienced with dogs, the fact remains that you will always encounter some issues during puppy potty training. It will always get messy. However, like with anything else, there are easier and harder ways to do it.

When you do puppy potty training properly, not only are you teaching your dog how to relieve itself outside but you are also creating a meaningful bond. This is where most dog owners go wrong thinking that puppy potty training is nothing more than a hindrance.

This is not quite true as potty training sets up the basis for any future training you might do with your dog. Not only that; if you do it right, you are also able to build its discipline.


Some simple tips to training your puppy


Now, let’s go over some basics:

· Make sure to always wake up before you dog. Given that puppy is an instinctive being, the first thing it will do in the morning is pee itself. Unfortunately, it will also pee the rest of your home. That means you have to be fast and act preemptively. When a dog gets the urge (whether it’s in the morning or some other part of the day) you already have to be outside and facilitate relieving process
· Your dog loves you. Puppies are really cuddly and emotion. That doesn’t mean you should pet it in the morning. Whenever you pet your puppy it gets quickly excited, its bladder weakens and it may relieve itself on the spot. So be careful

· Dog’s diet is paramount for potty training. As I said, you are the one that needs to predict dog’s need and go out when required. If you do not do so, your dog will develop a habit of urinating and pooing all over your home. You can prevent this by having regular meals. This also means you should avoid treats and any nibbling. When puppy is done, make sure to remove the bowl even if there is still some food left in it

· After a meal, you need to go outside. Most dogs require from few minutes to half an hour to digest food. Rest require from 30 to 60 minutes. At first, make sure to go out immediately after a meal preventing any accidents. When you learn how your dog’s metabolism behave, it will be easier to time walks

· No matter what happens, do not punish your dog. Physical and mental abuse can have a long term and even disturb dog’s development. Worst thing yet is that the puppy will remember and it will have disastrous impact on your relationship

· Make sure to go out once again prior to sleeping. Like babies, puppies need to sleep with an empty stomach and bladder. Otherwise, accident may occur during the night

· Lastly, make sure to enjoy your training time. It will mainly come down to a walking routine and shouting some instructions. Nevertheless, it is an important part of dog’s life and if done properly will affect everything you two do in the future.

Confessions of a Trauma Junkie



Confessions of a Trauma Junkie: My Life as a Nurse Paramedic by Sherry Lynn Jones



Ride in the back of the ambulance with Sherry Jones Mayo 


Share the innermost feelings of emergency services workers as they encounter trauma, tragedy, redemption, and even a little humor. Sherry Lynn Jones has been an Emergency Medical Technician, Emergency Room Nurse, prison healthcare practitioner, and an on-scene critical incident debriefer. Most people who have observed or experienced physical, mental or emotional crisis have single perspectives. This book allows readers to stand on both sides of the gurney; it details a progression from innocence to enlightened caregiver to burnout, glimpsing into each stage personally and professionally.

"Corrections" the third realm of emergency care behind layers of concrete and barbed wire. Join in the dangers, challenges, and truth-is-stranger-than-fiction humor of this updated and revised second edition of Confessions of a Trauma Junkie. In addition to stories from the streets and ERs, medics, nurses, and corrections officers share perceptions and coping skills from the other side of prisons' cuffs and clanging metal door.

Emergency Service Professionals Praise Confessions of a Trauma Junkie 
"A must read for those who choose to subject themselves to life at its best and at its worst. Sherry offers insight in the Emergency Response business that most people cannot imagine." --Maj Gen Richard L. Bowling, former Commanding General, USAF Auxiliary (CAP) 

"Sherry Mayo shares experiences and unique personal insights of first responders. Told with poetry, sensitivity and a touch of humor at times, all are real, providing views into realities EMTs, Nurses, and other first responders encounter. Recommended reading for anyone working with trauma, crises, critical incidents in any profession." -- George W. Doherty, MS, LPC, President Rocky Mountain Region Disaster Mental Health Institute 

"Sherry has captured the essence of working with people who have witnessed trauma. It made me cry, it made me laugh, it helped me to understand differently the work of our Emergency Services Personnel. I consider this a 'MUST READ' for all of us who wish to be helpful to those who work in these professions." --Dennis Potter, LMSW, CAAC, FAAETS, ICISF Instructor 

"Confessions of a Trauma Junkie is an honest, powerful, and moving account of the emotional realities of helping others! Sherry Mayo gives us a privileged look into the healing professions she knows firsthand. The importance of peer support is beautifully illustrated. This book will deepen the readers respect for those who serve." --Victor Welzant, PsyD, Director of Education and Training, The International Critical Incident Stress Foundation, Inc

My Review

I love watching and reading about the medical profession. I am a huge fan of shows like Untold Stories of the ER. You just can't make some of that stuff up. This book was an amazing read and the stories really hit you in the gut and the heart. There is so much emotion and humor in this book. You will find it very difficult to put down. The insights in these stories will elevate your respect for anyone who works in these fields. The stories are told in vivid detail, with no holds barred. The stories kept me up late reading and I can't wait to read more stories like this.

About the author

Author, teacher, and perspective changer Diane Wing, M.A. enjoys exploring the mysteries of life and the way that people experience themselves and the world around them. A phenomenologist at the core, Diane uses a variety of techniques combined with discovering unique patterns experienced by her clients to reveal a deeper understanding of the self and to shift their perspective enabling them to move past obstacles that keep them stuck.


Diane Wing is dedicated to helping people get grounded and trust themselves, so they can live a peaceful and fulfilling life of joyful self-expression. She inspires others and teaches them to safely tap into the energies around them to turn anxiety into tranquility. Her clients are those who are ready to stop struggling in their personal life so they can feel their best. 

Wing sees connections between things that seem disparate to others and can help you see their significance in your life. She’s an idea person who helps you shift your perspective to see yourself and your life in a whole new way and is a master at bringing magick into the everyday. She wants to live in a world where people feel inspired and motivated to evolve beyond their current way of being. As a Perspective Changer and Blockage Buster, she’s a wiz at helping people find their Inner Magick to help them be happy in the present while creating their ideal future.

To that end, Diane Wing created a body of work focused on knowing the self at a deep level in order to build self-trust and self-confidence. Her books, both dark fantasy fiction and enlightening non-fiction, hold lessons based in Universal and Magickal Law and energetic consciousness. Her games, Pathways and Insight Stones®, are systems of metaphysics designed to facilitate self-discovery, develop intuitive ability, and to enhance self-awareness. The emphasis of her school, Wing Academy of Unfoldment, and of her radio show, Wing Academy Radio, helps students and listeners learn ways to take metaphysical and personal development concepts and apply them to everyday life in their own distinct way. It’s about going deeper and seeing the patterns of your life.

Wing’s books create a transformational experience for the reader while incorporating a bit of the unexpected. Many say that her fiction has a sense of Karmic justice rendered within the realm of the unknown and that her non-fiction brings about a heightened awareness of the self and the world to enhance understanding of our own internal transformations. According to Diane Wing, “Ever since I was little, the world felt magickal. [Magick with a “k” is used to differentiate the magic of an illusionist or stage magician from the magick that includes your intuitive abilities and tapping into the flow of the Universe). The world was beautiful and mysterious, filled with things to learn and experience. The path led me to become a lifetime student of metaphysics, mysticism, magick, and spirituality and to achieve a Master’s degree in psychology…and it all shows up in my writing. You never know what’s waiting around the bend.

“The world still feels magickal to me; every act of nature, every energetic exchange, every new discovery is perceived through the eyes of wonder. I now understand that self-knowledge is the key to all magickal operations; the discovery of our own Inner Magick is essential to living in concert with the Universe. We are the Magician, as in tarot, orchestrating and creating life in accordance with our true self.” Diane is an avid reader, bibliophile, lover of trees, and a lifelong learner. She and her husband are pet parents to a sweet little Shih Tzu.

3 Online Activities Mums Over 80 Soon Must Know How To Do



Growing up and raising families in the rolling sixties and swinging seventies and joining the ranks of middle-agers in the 1990’s, most mothers over the age of 80 are not too familiar with this "new" technology called the internet.

You've probably heard your children and grandchildren mull over the miracle that the Online World seems to offer. If you have a computer or a smartphone, you've also probably checked out the internet to see what it's all about.

Well, in the guide below, you will find out the top 3 online activities everyone (including an 80 year older grand mums) should know. Read on to learn more.

Online Shopping

First on this list is online shopping – which every woman from 8 to 80 and beyond loves to do. Essentially, online shopping will allow you to buy services and goods for yourself and your loved ones without ever having to leave your comfort zone.

But for elderly ladies, where mobility is usually a big issue, online shopping will prove useful if you don’t want to go through the gruelling process of shopping in a crowded store.

Armed with a web browser and your newfound internet skills, you can buy online from many stores such as Amazon and Etsy), find the right products/services, place an order, input the shipping information, and pay up.

After that, all you have to do is sit back and wait for the retailer to send what you bought over to the location you added. For instance, if she purchased a pair of slippers, they will be delivered straight to her doorstep.

Internet Banking

Otherwise referred to as virtual banking, e-banking, internet banking will allow you to conduct a wide variety of financial transactions over the web. You will need to go to your bank's (or financial institution's) official website, check into the banking system, and start transacting right away.
Although you'll need some time to adjust to this new world, you will soon realize how simple it all is.

 Here's what you should do to go the right way:

· Register with your bank for the online banking.

· Set a secret password and any other personal credentials so that the system verifies your identity when you sign in (Never divulge this information unless you want to see your money gone)

· Start transactions; sending money, receiving money, paying bills, and more!

Though most banks give priority to elderly clients when they visit their physical branches, doing your banking from your living room is infinitely easier.

Webmail

Lastly, you should open up an online mailing address – because few people send letters and postcards these days. Some popular webmail providers include Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail.com (outlook.com), and AOL Mail – among others.

The main advantage with your new webmail is that you will be able to send/receive email communications from anywhere in the world.

Concluding Thoughts

So, there you have it – 3 online activities mums over 80 soon must how to do. If you are a lady over 80, the earlier you learn the easier it will be for you to navigate through this new world that is besmirched and controlled by the internet. With time, you will be glad you'd mastered the online world!

How A Pinnacle Studio Coupon Skyrocketed My Photo Editing



Pinnacle Studio is a movie editing software that has received a vast array of mixed reviews. Some praise this software for its general ease of use. Many say that even the more technical and difficult to use tools appear to be easy to use after a short amount of practice with the program. Although on the other end of the spectrum, many people do not have such a fond appreciation for the Pinnacle Studio movie edition software for a large number of reasons.

Some claim that at such a high price tag they were hoping that there would simply be more to the program, while others say that although figuring out your way around the software isn't all that difficult, a user guide of some form or tutorial would be greatly appreciated for walking you through the software and showing you its ins and outs.

Well, both of the above queries have been answered. First of all, the company, which manufactures and delivers this series of programs, has also issued a number of discount coupons. Pinnacle studio promo codes are available online. I found mine at qetes.com/pinnacle-studio-coupon. Secondly, there are lots of tutorial videos available at youtube which show you how to install and operate it. They elaborate on several features of the software explaining clearly what they do and how.

The product itself has a number of useful features that are of use to anyone starting out or already experienced within the field of video editing. Pinnacle Studio 20 movie editing software boasts a new 64-bit performance, this means that you should have a faster running program with better movie quality. This considered, the speed and performance of the program will still be limited by the capabilities of your computer.

The software includes more than 1,500 effects titles and templates as well as royalty free music, which allows users to easily find that certain aspect that will make a movie or video clip stand out from the crowd. The way Pinnacle Studio 20 is set up also allows for users to easier share their creations or editing wonders with the world via easy sharing with social media outlets like YouTube and Facebook. Pinnacle studio also offers many other feature's worthy of mention such as correction and enhancement features, better file handling, the ability to combine video and audio, smart movie (used to make movies within a short amount of time), and of coursed the full-fledged 6 track timeline editing mode.


Although the price is more expensive than some would like it to be at anywhere from $50-$60 dollars, in comparison to some other movie editors it is an affordable price while still having the editing capabilities to compete with the more expensive competition. However, do yourself a favour and search for the term “pinnacle studio discount coupons” and you will come up with plenty of coupon sites like Qetes.

Although there are a few downsides that some reviews quickly point out, there seems to be no huge downfalls of the software and by most accounts Pinnacle Studio is a great movie editing package.

The BroBasket Review



When you see the term “Bro” you probably think of that party-loving, egotistical frat boy who always insisted on hi-fiving you for some reason.  We hate the typical nomenclature for “Bro” and we want to redefine it.  
We are taking the term “Bro” back because to us, a Bro is much more than that.  A Bro is that friend you’ve known since you were 5 years old, your buddy from softball, your dad, your brother, your best friend, or maybe even your lover.  (so smooth)
Our BroBasket’s were created to be THE best gifts for men, ones that all the Bro’s in your life would love to receive.  The guys that love beer, scotch, whiskey, tequila, wine and maybe the occasional long distance hug only a BroBasket can provide.  Men love our unique gifts with their favorite alcohol in them, and we love making the best gifts for men around almost as much as guys love receiving them.
The BroBasket
For all the Bros in your life.


I received the Viva Tequila at no cost in exchange for my honest review.




Our Review

My husband does a lot for our family so I try to make sure he knows how much me and my sons appreciate everything he does. My sons like to make daddy cards, and I make sure he's always stocked in fishing and camping gear for them. Sometimes daddy would like something that is just for him though. BroBasket makes it easy to get daddy a present that is just for him.

I got my husband the Viva La Tequila basket for Fathers Day coming up. My husband likes tequila and Patron is a favorite brand. This basket included 4 different varieties for him to sample, 2 Coronitas, 2 shot glasses and a very cute little mini saltshaker.

This basket comes in a really nice reusable tin that husband can use for a lot of different things. The shot glasses are nice quality and they are the tall ones he likes. We are both very impressed with BroBasket and I would definitely get other baskets for other occasions. These are also a great value for the items that come in the basket.

BroBasket has different baskets for any budget, any occasion, and any man in your life. Check them out!

How to Get the Best Web Hosting Plan for Your Mommy Blog or Online Business



How to Get the Best Web Hosting Plan for Your Mommy Blog or Online Business 



A lot goes into having a great website or online business. But an often overlooked factor is the quality of web hosting services you choose to use. The truth is that any ill-considered compromise in this regard could doom your online enterprise long before it even gets on its feet.


Sure, trying to find good web hosting might push your costs a little higher than you might like; but at least you stand to get the service you truly wanted and give your customers the high quality experience you want associated with your site and your online products and services.


But before you run off looking for the priciest web hosting plan with the hope that it's what it will take to get web hosting right; there are some things you should understand first. The first is that the most important step in this process is choosing the right web hosting company.


The other step involves knowing more about the web hosting business. Thankfully, this is not as complicated as it sounds. This process should give you an idea of what needs you should address as you pay for web hosting services so that you get what you need for your site.


Top Web Hosting Companies


1. BlueHost


If you are just starting out, and need all the help you can use as you make your site go live, then BlueHost is the way to go. And it you are trying to have your WordPress site hosted, then BlueHost plans will be even more difficult to pass up on; thanks to dedicated WordPress features and services. The web hosting site also provides exemplary customer support to ensure your site goes live as soon as possible and works properly at all times.


2. HostGator


HostGator is an industry heavyweight. It is things like a free domain, unmatched uptime, and blazing fast load times that have put it in this enviable position. In addition to the best deals on hosting, this web hosting service will also give you instant access to professional and experienced support services so that you enjoy topnotch web hosting services at a price that even lesser web hosting service providers might not give you.


3. 1&1 Web Hosting


1&1 Web Hosting is another web hosting choice people consider when they want to deal with the best service providers in the industry. The uptime you will get from this web hosting company is among the best the industry could ever give you. Setting up your site will also be a walk in the park, thanks to the special web creation tools this hosting company makes available to its customers.


4. Godaddy


Godaddy has two advantages that make it stand out among other hosting companies. First, it is the largest domain registrar with more than 17 million clients worldwide. They have enormous experience and they are very reliable. That means your website will have no downtime. Second, they offer extremely low prices on your first term with hosting being as low as $1 per month.


How do you Find Good Web Hosting for Your Business?

The uncomfortable truth is that many web hosting companies are not what they claim to be. Lofty promises and eye-popping prices are typical in this industry; and you have to possess the foresight to see beyond these fancy offers and see what you are really getting into.


So, here are some pointers to help you get better quality web hosting services.


Some Tips to Help You Get High Quality Web Hosting Services


The Fine Print. Read the fine print that comes with each offer a web hosting company gives you. Don’t take the “unlimited’ hosting plans and the incredibly low costs at their face value. Such offers usually have other conditions attached; and you can bet that you are not going to like them very much.


What it really takes to land a good web hosting deal is some bit of sobriety as you choose your plan. Focus on the basics – good uptime, reliable customer support, transparent pricing, and so forth. Cost should take a backseat in this analysis. And the good thing is that you can find a price that is suitable for you once you solve the question of what your hosting plan needs to offer.

The Price. Many leading web hosting companies have very accommodative prices because they have lots of customers. Furthermore, they usually have different kinds of plans to ensure no site owner is locked out of their quality web hosting services.


This might be hard to hear, but nowhere else does the phrase “cheap is expensive” apply as well as it does with regard to web hosting. It is important to get a hosting service that delivers at least what it promises, if not more. Many second rate web hosting companies will promise you everything, and then turn around and give you more trouble that you could handle.

As someone who is serious about having a successful online enterprise, you have to get exactly what was promised to you. If the web hosting service keeps giving you less bandwidth that promised, you could end up losing your customers to the frustration of trying to access unavailable or poorly delivered site services.


Setting up Your Site. The web hosting company should also make it easy for you to set up your site. Granted, this varies with the web hosting method you have chosen. For instance, there is no way setting up dedicated web hosting services is going to be as painless as establishing a shared web hosting service. Still, you should sail through either process with maximum ease, and while at it, get all the help you need from the company.


Uptime and Speed. It is also critical to consider factors like good uptime and load speeds. Some web hosting companies will face downtime problems that last for hours, some will even keep your site down for days. Don't expect your customers to put up with this. Many will find sites with better hosting, while others will start to question the credibility of your services.


Worst of all, these customers will post online reviews that will really put you in a bind because you will come off as an online business to avoid. Even if you improve your hosting services later, this sort of damage can still persist and keep you from realizing your full potential.


Resources. Resources are also important in your pursuit of good web hosting services. Your site might have special requirements for one reason or another. A case in point: a blog site might demand less than a retail site in this regard. Therefore, you have to ensure that the web hosting service you have chosen gives you all the tools you need to give your site all the functionality it requires.

It is also quite important to understand the various forms of web hosting in existence and what they have to offer. For instance, while shared hosting will be cheap, the performance of your site may regularly go down if the sites you are sharing server space with get too busy and take up more than their fair share of server resources.


On the other hand, using dedicated hosting might introduce some performance stability to your site, but it will cost more and demand more technical expertise. The point is—you have to weigh all the important factors until you find a web hosting method that perfectly suits your business. Otherwise, a misstep at this stage will prove to be a persistent problem that could very well cause the complete collapse of your fledgling or established online business.

Konjac Sponge- Dew Puff Review



Dew Puff face and body cleansing natural sponges are 100% plant-based cleansing products. Dew Puff has only one ingredient, konjac root, also known as elephant yam or kon-nyaku in Japanese.

When hydrated, these natural sponges become exceptionally soft, yet gently exfoliating, while creating a perfect pH balance on the surface of the skin. Regular use brightens and evens your skin tone without irritation.

I received one each of these Dew Puffs to facilitate my honest review


My Review

I have very erratic skin. Sometimes it's oily, sometimes dry, and sometimes my skin is in a I just don't know kinda mood. I have tried different products and sponges and other accouterments over the years. Some work great, others not so much. These awesome little Dew Puffs fall into the great category for me. These puffs are made of konjac root, which apparently is great for moody skin. There are a couple varieties: Plain, Asian Clay and Bamboo Charcoal. Each one is a little different and good for different issues. These facial sponges start out hard and dry and when you run them under water they become soft and exfoliate without feeling like sandpaper. You can use these with or without cleanser, I prefer without. The shape of the sponges make them easy to hold onto in my hand. They also have a little string attached so you can hang them up to dry. These Dew puffs are reusable for up to 3 months depending on use.  I am very happy with the results from the Dew Puff and they are very affordable so I will definitely be restocking my supply!

I received the above pictured items at no cost in exchange for an honest review.


My Review

I am always excited to get new Caposaldo varieties of wine to review! I have never not been impressed. I received the Sparkling Peach, Prosecco and Moscato this time. The package arrived quickly and was well packed and protected so the bottles arrived unharmed.

The first one I tried was the Sparkling Peach. I loved the bottle and the pretty Peach color. This is a light, bubbly, sweet wine with the perfect amount of peach flavor. This is not too sweet, but you can definitely taste the peach. It's fizzy and fun to drink!

I love almost any Moscato but this Moscato from Caposaldo is high on my list of favorites. Again, I love the bottles these wines are packaged in. The blue bottles especially are great for decorating and crafts after they are empty. This Moscato has a nice light and sweet taste and is sparkly and fizzy.

I have heard of Proseco but have not actually tried it before. This Proseco reminds me a little bit of champagne. It has a light and bubbly taste and is a little sweet. I would buy this again for special occasions and celebrations for those friends and family who maybe don't like champagne.

Kobrand offers a wide range of wines and liqueurs for every taste. Check them out at the links below!
