Deciding to make the move and adopt a brand new furry friend is always a big decision. The arrival of your new family member will bring a whole host of responsibilities, and it’s never more important to be sure you are making the right decision than when you are choosing to welcome a kitten into your home.
The decision to bring a new puppy or a dog into your home is a big decision, but one that many people make. The addition of a fur baby to your family is one that not only brings a lot of joy and love, but one which also needs some work to ensure your new pooch fits in nicely. Nip all of those potential bad habits in the bud before they become a problem with our fantastic puppy training tips.
If you’re planning a trip out with your pooch, there are a number of things which need to be taken into consideration. In addition to packing everything you need for the day and making sure you know where you’re going, it’s important to consider things from your dog’s perspective, too. For instance, if you are going to the seaside, it’s essential to double check that the particular beach is dog-friendly before you make the journey. Continue reading
Those with a feline friend waiting for them at home will be more than familiar with the sensation of being licked by their cat – there is nothing quite like those furry little tongues! But have you ever wondered why they do it? We like to think that it is a show of the affection that they have for us as their owners and guardians, but is there a deeper underlying reason beneath the surface? Continue reading
Pets are more than just animals; they’re friends, companions and members of the family, too. That’s why it’s so heartbreaking that an estimated 300,000 pets go missing, are stolen or become strays every single year in the UK. With over half of the country’s households having a pet at the centre of the family, it’s important to make sure you’re doing everything you can to protect your dog from going missing.
So, you’ve chosen to adopt a cat. You’ve got bedding, food, a litter tray and sparkling new cat tags, all ready for your new feline friend, and you head down to your local shelter to choose your cat. You see a litter of adorable kittens – one black, one white, one tortoiseshell. Which one do you choose?
Now that autumn is here, evening walks are edging closer to dusk than they were a few short weeks ago. Remember to clip your dog’s tag to a reflective collar for safe evening jaunts (our eZeClip will make this easy and quick). Evening entertainment for our four-legged friends now consists of spiders and moths instead of bees and wasps, and comfort food is our go-to once again.
Our pets are important to us, but unfortunately, we don’t speak each other’s language. For this reason, it is important that as pet owners we learn to understand our dogs’ body language and behaviour indicators. In addition, we must ensure that our pooches have up-to-date information on their dog tags, so lost pets can easily be returned – especially as they won’t be able to tell anyone where they live!
As the summer nights begin to darken and we move into the autumnal months of many colours and blustery breezes, there are a few things to keep in mind regarding the safety of you and your pet when out on walks. Preparation is everything, so don’t forget the necessities including an up-to-date dog name tag and your doggy waste bags.
