It's no secret that mental health problems are pretty common in people, with approximately 1 in 6 of us Brits reporting symptoms each week . But, did you know that it's even more of a problem for our dogs?
We're here to answer all of these questions and, TLDR: yes, you need one!
Entertaining our dogs can sometimes be a challenge, particularly if they LOVE to be active and you can't get out with them (like in the recent stormy weather!). However, it is an important part of having a dog, and can stop them from developing some problematic behaviour, such as excessive barking or destroying the furniture.
Here are our top three ways you can get your pup's brain turning, without breaking the bank.
Most dogs of today have a lovely, relaxing lifestyle, with a warm bed to snuggle up in, food whenever they want it, and a loving family around them. However, this life of luxury often paves the way for boredom, which can bring a whole host of issues to you as the owner.
But, there are ways you can keep your dogs occupied, whilst still giving them a fabulous life! We've put together a collection of five toys you can give to your dog to ensure they stay get all the activity they need - helping them to be on their best behaviour.
It’s a sad fact that many of us are having to go back into our offices, leaving our dogs home alone. This can be a scary and unsettling time for our pups, so it’s vital that we set them up to be as calm as possible.
Luckily, there are five must-have products out there, that can really help our dogs to settle down without us.
Leaving our dogs home alone is a worrying experience, especially when they’re not used to it. With lockdowns happening on-and-off for the last two years, our dogs are either out of practise with being alone, or they’ve never had to experience it at all.
We’re all waiting for the first snowfall of the season, dreaming of snowball fights and sledging competitions. Most of us want to be able to share in the fun with our dogs – there’s nothing quite like seeing your fur-baby run around in the snow with a goofy grin on their face! But whilst some dogs take to snow straight away, a lot of our pups can actually be scared of it when they first experience it.
To make sure your pup can relax and have fun in the snow, make sure you follow these steps before charging out to build a snowman.
We’re all familiar with dogs barking at the postman: barking at the door is an incredibly common behaviour in pet dogs, and can happen for a handful of reasons. Whatever the reason, the way to get them to quiet down is the same. We talk through how to manage this behaviour, and how to teach your dog not to do it in the long-term.
