Water sports with your dog

Some dogs just love water. It’s like it’s in their genes (clue: it is. See the Irish Water Spaniel and the Portuguese Water Dog).  We already know dogs can dry-off quicker than us – humans can’t quite shake 70% of water off our skin in four seconds… yet.

A frequent question I’m asked is ‘are there foods that will improve my dog’s behaviour’ or ‘are there foods that will make my dog’s behaviour worse?’. That might seem a simple enough question but the answer certainly isn’t straightforward. Food does affect behaviour (anyone who’s attempted to look after small children who are full of … Read more

Recently I was asked if dogs can smile. A great question – and yes of course they can – but unlike us, dogs don’t smile with their mouths and teeth but with their tail.  Actually, to be more accurate, a dog smiles with their whole body but the tail is the closest thing to a … Read more

Walk, don’t walk.

Part of life with our dogs is the daily – or twice daily – dog walk. When we look to take a doginto our lives, one of the things we look at is how much exercise they need and factor that intoour choice of breed (or at least we should!). With unpredictable weather changes, the … Read more

Happy birthday pupcakes

Pup cake recipe

Did someone say party? Let’s celebrate together with a no-bake pupcake. It’s made with dog-friendly peanut butter (which means no xylitol sweetener) and healthy oats, and just needs a little ping in the microwave to get things popping. We admit it, we love frosting ours with this rather novel way to make icing. Don’t forget … Read more

A family favourite: peanut butter and banana ice cream

We all love a party – but the type of party we like varies from person to person.  For the extrovert social butterflies amongst us, a huge get-together with an endless source of people to meet, talk to and have fun with, is their idea of heaven. For the more introverted, however, that sounds like … Read more
