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!
As it’s the Chinese ‘Year of the Dog’ there’s no excuse not to make some New Year’s resolutions that impact positively on your four-legged friend.
One study revealed that about 80% of dogs in the UK are not trained, which is a great shame as trained dogs are happy dogs, and certainly make happier owners!
Are you over it yet? The new year rush to be the better, brighter, fitter you (I’m sure the current you is just fabulous)? Has the biscuit tin been restored to its rightful place next to the kettle and tea bags? Is Davina’s (love Davina) new fitness DVD case being used as a coaster yet?
A dog is for life, not just Christmas
This slogan was the brain child of Clarissa Baldwin to reduce the thousands of puppies being abandoned post-Christmas having been purchased as Christmas presents. Unfortunately, this problem still remains and many puppies are purchased during the festive period without careful thought, research and ensuring that the recipient definitely wants one!
It’s well known among my family and friends that I suffer from depression. I always have and over the years it’s got the better of me to the point where, once or twice, I’ve seriously considered suicide. I don’t write that sentence lightly, but when you’ve stopped yourself jumping in front of the 09.32 to London Victoria at the last moment, then worked so hard to make sure you’re never in that state again, I reckon you’ve earned the right to talk about it at least.
