Perezitos.com's dietician and mommy contributor Lisa DeFazio's Quick Tip:

"The way you present and serve healthy food to kids will get them to eat it! As the mother of a 6 year old, I have some tips on getting you child to eat healthy! Serve carrot sticks with a ranch dip, buy some fun, colorful plates, utensils and cups with their favorite characters, cut the food in smaller pieces-especially chicken and beef, let them dip their food in their favorite condiment like ketchup, do not overwhelm them with large portions."

Perezitos Quick Tip

Perezitos.com's mommy expert, Amy Malin's Quick Tip:

"Everyone I know loves Fro-Yo, but spending $4-8 on a frozen treat a few times a week adds up to hundreds of dollars a year. Buy a Yonanas frozen treat maker and make your own healthy and yummy desserts at home. You'll also be eating way less calories and fat which means you'll keep your body looking hot. You can buy a fabulous new outfit with all that money you saved. ;)"

Quick Tip Of The Day

Is your doggie a loud barker? What about an OBSESSIVE chewer?

Dr. Patrick and friends can help you with your canine's problem!

Andrea Arden, a multi-certified dog trainer and Animal Planet correspondent, has this tip just for you:

Invest in 5-10 durable, hollow, rubber toys that can be filled with your dog’s normal meals and special treats.

These sorts of enrichment toys provide a much needed outlet for some of your pup's mental and physical energy and will keep your puppy happily occupied 'hunting' for its food.

This helps prevent an endless list of unwanted behaviors, such as inappropriate chewing and excessive barking.

Your puppy is a growing boy or girl and it's great when you can share the world with your pets.

Dr. Patrick and friends have great advice for your pup's socialization.

Laura Nativo, creative director for Petsami and APDT trainer says the following:

As soon as your veterinarian gives you the go-ahead, introduce your puppy to as many new environments, people, and other pets as possible. Many common behavioral issues like excessive barking, resource guarding, and fear and leash aggression stem from missed opportunities for puppy socialization. Puppies that are well-socialized and trained in a variety of settings have the best chance of growing into happy, confident and well-mannered adults. Make it a priority to socialize your dog every day, whether on a walk, hike, at the dog park, the local coffee shop, or in a puppy kindergarten class! Your dog will love it, and so will you!

Walking with your dog is a great way to stay healthy and have fun with your pet.

Dr. Patrick and his pet training friends have some tips to help you enjoy your walks safely and smartly!

Darlene Arden, a speaker and multi-published cat and dog writer says:

Instead of a cervical (neck) collar, use a chest harness to prevent any pressure on your puppy's trachea (windpipe).

And Dr. Patrick echoes her sentiments:

I wholeheartedly agree with Arden and greatly appreciate her goals for promoting safe training from the perspective of health. Besides the potential for harm to the trachea, there is also the potential for the esophagus, blood and lymphatic vessels, vertebrae, intervertebral discs, facets (small joints connecting the vertebrae), spinal cord, and muscles of the neck to be adversely affected by abrupt leash tugs on a cervical collar.
