From time to time I get phone calls from new expectant mums and dads wanting advice on how to introduce the dog to the new baby.
I often hear friends and clients talk of the sad loss of having recently lost their beloved dog and more often than not the sentence that follows is….” But we will wait a few months before we get another”.
We are frequently being told by our veterinary surgeons to watch our dogs weight….and rightly so, as an obese dog can lead on to diabetes , heart disease and much more.
If you are the owner of more than one dog, have you ever wondered when out walking with your dogs, why they will always want to play, interact and run around at brake neck speed…..right under your feet?
Well…I think I’ve seen it all now!! If it wasn’t enough to see a dog with the full range of outfits for every occasion.
As a lot of you already know, whenever possible ..we like to take our dog (Fly) on holiday with us as we regularly take him camping with us to Cornwall.
Children are still being mauled by dogs; assistance dogs are being attacked by out of control aggressive dogs.
What a relief to see the first swallow this morning out on my walk with the dogs, does this mean summer time is finally here?
Time and time again l hear it from clients…. Oh yes my dog gets on well with all dogs….well except black dogs!!
I know they’re not seasonal…..deer that is….but this is the time of year that they become more mobile, crossing dual carriageways.
It seems these days that there’s hardly a month that doesn’t pass without hearing of yet another shocking case where a dog has attacked or mauled an infant.
Interesting…. I thought when I heard this on the news over the weekend. Apparently new research suggests clever people are more likely to own cats than dogs.
When recently asked to advise on a dog problem on the beach I took a drive to Broadsands near Paignton in Devon (which was absolutely stunning).
Whether you’re anti or pro it has to be said “what dog trainer/behaviourist has ever filled arenas to such a capacity?”
It’s surfaced yet again… Positive versus negative but this time because dog trainers just can’t agree.
