This Christmas we’re set to spend over £166 million on our pets, proving that the ‘hound pound’ is booming.
It’s proof that we’re gifting our dogs with the latest must have’s, but is that what your dog really wants for Christmas?
Christmas is for spending time with family and friends. Yet despite our best intentions, our pets can be ignored as the festivities take over.
There is a dog point to this story so bear with.
I try to eat well throughout the week: no cake, biscuits or pasta, that kinda thing. And for the most part that works well for me. I also train twice a week, a new activity, which while masochistic is doing me the world of good both physically and mentally. And I have more energy to get through the week. Yeah I know I’m a flippin saint. Don’t worry the total honesty bit is coming up right now.
The view on dogs wearing ‘clothes’ has always been a much-debated subject.
According to a survey by Direct Line (2017), a third of UK vets believe dressing dogs can promote skin conditions.
The autumn can be a stunning time of year with the leaves turning colour and nature preparing to rest and restore over the winter months. Many fields are newly ploughed and hedgerows cut back. It is a lovely time to be out and about with our dogs while the light levels are still good.
With the changing season come some different challenges and things to be aware of.
Let's set some new goals for the pets in our lives. Obesity is not just about what it looks like but can have serious consequences for your pets health and lead to diseases such as diabetes, arthritis and even cancer.
When going away with our pets we often worry about the logistics of getting them from A to B, making sure they have all the essentials and of course that we take enough food to last the trip. The question that people often ask is, can I feed my dog a raw diet when I go away? Well the answer is absolutely yes you can!
We were thrilled when one of our wonderful customers, Lee Stirrup, offered to write a blog for us highlighting the ease of travelling with our frozen raw products!
