With the merry season literally just around the corner, it is important to remember to keep your pets safe whilst celebrating amongst family and friends.

If, like so many other dog owners out there, you consider your four-legged friends to be a firm part of the family instead of ‘just a pet’, then this one is for you.
Outside of all the usual treats and doggy essentials – bed, bowl, lead, dog tag, an enviable wardrobe and both sofa and bed privileges – there are many other things that dog lovers, just like you, are doing for their pooches on a regular basis – because dogs are family too.
Dr Katrina explains how Wonderdog School came about:
“We spend a lot of time travelling around Australia to pet expos and events with our team of Wonderdogs providing entertainment and education for the public. We meet thousands of dog owners and many of them tell us they are frustrated with their dog’s behaviour.
They want to know how to train their dogs to be fun, well behaved companions. They tell us they need help to resolve problems like jumping up, housetraining, pulling on the lead, barking, chewing, digging……
Finally, help is at hand!
A couple of years ago I realised that many owners completed Puppy Classes but were then unsure how to continue training their young dogs and subsequently experienced problems when their puppies became adolescents.
I discovered that many people wanted to train their dogs, but didn’t want to be locked into giving up their Saturday mornings or weekday evenings to attend traditional dog training classes. Nor did they know where to find help to solve minor everyday dog behavioural problems. It saddened me to see so many dogs surrendered to rescue centres, purely due to lack of good training, management & socialising.
As luck would have it, my friend Kelly had similar thoughts. We have both always been passionate about helping owners find joy in training their pets. We knew it was possible for dogs to enjoy learning with their tails wagging & smiling faces. We knew that training could be fun for everyone with no stress. Developing a strong life long bond with our dogs was everything to us and we knew it could only be done using positive training techniques to gain trust and respect.
We just needed to find a way to inspire more owners to train their dogs and experience a happy lifelong relationship with their animal companions…
I’m a veterinarian with many years experience as a successful television presenter (appearing on Australian TV shows Totally Wild, Harry’s Practice and more recently as the resident vet on the Today Show). Kelly is a veterinary nurse and also a renowned puppy trainer and dog class instructor. We knew that between us, we had the skills and knowledge to empower owners to successfully train their dogs.
So, we created Wonderdog School, for all dog owners like you – owners who want to enjoy raising a happy, healthy, well behaved dog.

As dog lovers, our Christmas lists are never complete until we have added fun toys to surprise our dogs with on Christmas morning (and keep them entertained during the festive season). Here’s our favourites for this year, all available on Amazon for buyer protection and all include FREE delivery (some on orders over £20).
Our favourite – tried and test by my own cocker spaniel, Mia, with great success! Persist with this – it takes a bit of time, but is worth the effort for the amount of fun your dog can have. Fill with small treats, then train your dog to put the ball into the hole at the top which will release a few treats at a time. Once they find it easy, make them work harder for the treats by throwing the ball for them to retrieve, or hiding the ball, which works well for spaniels who love sniffing out rewards.
And here are some other fun toys:
And of course, don’t forget our own special Christmas pet tags, all from £8.99 including full engraving and 1st class postage within 24 hours:
You can attach and remove them easily with a festive eZeClip:
