Training Day: The Importance Of Teaching Dogs The Rules

Dogs Gone Wild!

by: Tanya Enberg

Let’s talk dogs. More specifically, dog-park etiquette. 

I live in a dog-friendly 'hood, but that doesn’t—or shouldn’t—mean that anything goes. But, sometimes you wouldn’t know it. 

Out of the many Toronto neighborhoods I’ve lived in with my now eight-year-old dog Maggie, my current area is by far the most entitled.

Had Enough Of Winter?


by: Tanya Enberg

Now that Canada seems to have a one-season climate, my spirit is lagging. 

As winter continues to stretch along, how can anyone be expected to focus? 

Do you feel good, strong, and healthy? 

I do not.

The Stroller Wars: Where Manners Are Being Left At The Door

Move Over! Stroller Coming Through.

by: Tanya Enberg

Assuming you live in a place where there are babies and toddlers around, there’s a good chance you’ve been knocked off the sidewalk a time or two. Yes, you've come face-to-face with the stroller wars, and it's not pretty. 

Like a game of chicken, coming straight at you is a straight-across line of two or three kids in strollers being pushed by their moms, and they’re not about to give way. With nowhere else to go, you are sent flying into a decorative tree planter perched on the sidewalk. 



The Face, The Voice, The Blog!

After spending years pulling her hair out writing for national newspapers, magazines and online publications, journalist Tanya Enberg is now pulling her hair for an entirely different reason — trying to learn the rather chaotic rhythms of parenting.

When Tanya and her hubby were planning to start a family, she had no idea just how difficult the parenthood job would be, or how deliriously in love she would fall with their newborn squish. The intensity of joy that arrived with motherhood is incredible, mind boggling and, yes, unexpected.

Fact: Until her son’s birth, Tanya had only ever changed one diaper, and that was on a plastic doll in pre-natal class and still she found it very, very challenging. Now, she can almost change diapers in her sleep and sometimes has.

Oh, and she’s since learned all about onesies (and secretly wishes she could get away with wearing one), been peed on many, many times and has expertly mastered the art of the afternoon nap.

As a lifelong travel junkie, Tanya is the co-founder of the website ChicSavvyTravels.com who hopes their little guy will also be bitten by the jet setting bug.
