Prince or Princess?

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

Is there a difference between male and female dogs? Well apart from the obvious that one is a male and one is a female then in my own experience there are a few differences yes.

Male dogs generally grow slightly larger than females, this is more obvious in the bigger breeds of dog such as Huskies and the giant breeds like Saint Bernards. The smaller breeds such as Chihuahuas and Yorkshire Terriers do not always have an obvious difference between male and female.

Puppy Versus Adult

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

You and the family have decided that it is the right time to welcome a canine addition to your household but do you opt for a puppy or an adult dog?

The first point to be clear about is to not assume that adult dogs are automatically better behaved because they have grown up; generally this is not the case. The problem is an adult dog has had longer to develop bad habits and these can be difficult to break, not impossible, but tricky.

Bonfire Night

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

This time every year we always place an article on the website regarding the dreaded date in the canine world, the 5th of November. For most dogs it is a distressing time and we feel that the message cannot be repeated enough about how to keep your dogs safe and relatively happy.

Unfortunately the period of time leading towards the 5th can be just as stressful as the fireworks begin so early these days, we cannot always be prepared for those surprise bangs prior to the day but you can be on your guard slightly more when out walking with your dog. Keep your wits about you by being alert, wearing your iPod whilst out is not a great idea as you need to be listening out at all times. Keep your dog’s lead handy instead of popping it in your pocket as then if your dog becomes suddenly startled it might be best to pop him/her back on the lead quickly. This is a tricky one in some ways because the best advice is to not worry your dog even more by panicking yourself and if you are rushing around trying to clip their lead on this will probably alert them to the fact you’re flapping!

Clever Canines

Friday, October 1st, 2010

It is human nature in life to try and be better than are fellow human beings in the world, you would probably never admit to the fact that you boast from time to time about certain issues but in all honesty we are all a little guilty of ‘showing off’ now and again.

Dog owners can possess terrible bragging skills and are perfected in the art of showing other dog owners just how clever their faithful friends really are! I am the first one to raise my hand and admit I have tended to show off in the past in front of family and friends, my dogs love to perform to an audience and even more so if the observers are armed with doggy treats. I will ask them to ‘turn around’ or ‘wave a paw’ which they dutifully do whilst I lap up all the praise of how well trained they are. Just because the same people do not see these little canine angels turn into canine devils as soon as they leave is irrelevant, the point is that they behave when asked!
