As guardians of our dogs’ wellbeing, we must take into account the fact that, in the winter just like in the summer, certain precautions are to be taken in order to ensure our best friend’s healthiness and happiness.
There is nothing like the pleasure of knowing what our dogs really eat every day. When we beckon them over with a treat to sit or give paw, do we really know what we are giving them? Well, what better than making the treats for our doggies ourselves?
Let’s make the most of Halloween to treat our four-legged companions to something healthy, easy and most of all, yummy:

You may already be aware of the following rule stipulated in the Highway Code:
When in a vehicle make sure dogs or other animals are suitably restrained so they cannot distract you while you are driving or injure you, or themselves, if you stop quickly. A seat belt harness, pet carrier, dog cage or dog guard are ways of restraining animals in cars (rule 57).

This is also why being a dog sitter can turn out to be more tricky than one would think. You can never know in advance how dogs will behave until you get to know them well. On the first walk with a strange dog, we thus tend to be on the lookout for its every reaction to different commands and stimuli. Continue reading

When we consider our furry friend’s teeth, forgetting breed and size, it is impossible to deny they are fundamentally carnivore.
As a result of this a few years ago a new concept of diet was created called BARF. What started as a small group of people became introduced to the natural dog food world. Today it is a philosophy for those who enjoy preparing their dog’s meals.
