Christmas will soon be upon us and according to a recent survey 56% of Brits plan to spend more on presents for their pets than for their family and friends! We like to indulge our pets with extra special food treats over the festive period but please be aware your dog’s digestion can be quite delicate and reactive to sudden changes in food. The last thing you will want is a trip to the Vets over the holidays because your dog’s stomach is upset! Stick to your dog’s usual food and whilst it is fine to offer a few extra treats please ensure they are suitable for your dog and a healthy option.
To take the guess work out of what is suitable to use as Christmas treats we have a range of new Luxury Doggy Advent Calendars and special Christmas themed treats including wheat and gluten free, grain free, artificial colour, flavouring and preservative free, now in stock along with our usual range of natural treats.
Luxury Doggy Advent Calendar

Opinion is definitely divided on this one! If you talk to a raw feeder they will greet you with open arms and talk enthusiastically about the health and behavioural benefits of feeding a raw diet. However, if you talk to popular dog food manufacturers, some long standing breeders and Vets you can be very firmly warned off ever feeding a raw diet!

Training your dog doesn’t just happen in the formal ‘dog training classroom’ our dogs are willing to learn all the time. Finding something that really motivates your dog will help enormously. Often dogs are REALLY motivated by food but some are not so we have to find something else that motivates them such as a toy or a special type of praise.

Depending on who you speak to, expert opinions differ greatly as to what makes up a good diet for your dog. At one time all in one dried dog foods were on trend however, more recently, there has been a move towards a more ‘natural’ feeding approach of high meat content no cereal diets.
