Deck the halls with boughs of holly fa la la la la la la la la… 
Whilst the Christmas period is one of excitement and indulgence for us, it can be a very stressful and potentially dangerous time for our dogs so here’s our guide on making sure your dogs stay safe at this joyous time of the year. 
With the nights drawing in and temperature dropping, before you know it the trees will be bare and we'll be wrapped up in jumpers, scarves and gloves. (with an umbrella permanently in our bag!) We've jotted down a couple of tips and things to consider now Summers over. 
Summer is finally here and with it comes the influx of various dog shows all over the Capital. The question is, what do you do if your dog is a mixed breed or maybe a little on the veteran side? Can you still take part? – Of course you can! 
Walking and training dogs means I’m in the park at least four times a day. This morning I watched a man play fetch with his Jack Russell Terrier. The dog was a true professional; his eyes never left the ball then dutifully retrieved it and returned it to the foot of the owner to throw it again and again and again. The dog’s owner was on his phone only pausing to pick up the tennis ball in his ball launcher and throw it in the same direction as before. Is this a happy dog? Look again at the dog and the owner. Are they interacting with each other? Does the dog look happy or is it merely repeating a behaviour because that’s the only thing to look forward to on a walk? Now, don’t get me wrong, fetch can be a great game but there is so much more you can do with your dog.
