Spring to Summer


As the weather begins to warm and we start to transition from winter into spring summer, you’ll notice your dogs coat will begin to change along with the season. At this time, the winter coat will begin to shed allowing the summer coat to come through. As you begin to notice this change it’s a good idea to try to remember to groom your dog helping the winter coat to shed. We have a range of different combs to do this, although we would highly recommend the FURminator which is specifically designed to take out the under coat of the dog.

Don’t forget to know your breed when considering this. For example some terriers such as a border terrier require hand stripping.

Come in store or give us a call to learn more.

Birds – Cold Weather & Hard Ground


As we move into the new year, in this country our “cold snap” tends to arrive in the coming months. When feeding the birds bear this in mind:
With the harsh freezing conditions, birds will burn a lot more energy keeping warm. A great way to help them is to put out fat blocks which are a fantastic source of energy for them. Also during this time, the ground can freeze making it harder for birds to feed, so filling up your bird feeders or scattering some feed on the ground is a great way to help them. Dried meal worms, high energy feed, sunflower hearts etc. are all great feeds to be getting out for them.

Dogs at Christmas


Christmas is fast approaching and as exciting as this time of year is for us, it’s just another day for your dogs. However, keep in mind that the sudden change in routine, different people in the house, and the extra noise can upset and confuse your dog.
Make sure they still have their space and that it’s respected. If you have family and other children staying, try to make sure the dog isn’t bothered and overwhelmed when they take themselves off to their bed.
It might make a good picture to dress a dog up, but do try to spare a thought for them and make sure it isn’t upsetting them as the dog’s welfare comes first.
