Things That Go Bump

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

When most of us paint a picture in our minds of dogs we think of them as courageous, brave individuals and not of meek and mild canines. This is probably because we are always reading and hearing of tales of bravery involving police, search and rescue or drug finding pooches.

It is a fact though that many dogs, if not most, are afraid of something whether it is loud bangs or people shouting. If you have adopted a rescue dog you may discover they have fears which display themselves in certain situations and although it can be tricky to ascertain the cause with patience and understanding problems can be solved.

Dogs and Kids

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

As a child I remember always wishing we could have a dog, I pestered my parents relentlessly and the only answer I ever seemed to hear was a firm ‘no’! The reasons given were always the same every single time, ‘we will end up looking after it and the novelty will fade’.

Most people will associate the word ‘pounce’ with cats and not with dogs but our canines can pounce on toys, tumbling leaves, birds and their unsuspecting owners just as impressively as the felines.

The problem is not every single individual in the world is going to appreciate your dog saying ‘hello’ to them in quite the same way as you do, believe it or not there are those amongst us who do not take kindly to dogs, I know it is hard to comprehend to you and I but alas it is none the less the truth!

Diet and Exercise

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

The two basic components to keeping your faithful friend happy are diet and exercise, very simple but also very important. Now if the choice were left to our canine chums they would probably choose to eat everything in sight and run around playing to their little heart’s content! Luckily the decisions are not left for our dogs to ponder over as we make the choices for them.

One of the main decisions to make is the type of food you feed your canine chum, this can be very daunting and especially so to new dog owners as there are so many different brands and types of dog food available.
