The need for speed: A guide to slow down eating for dogs

Have you ever noticed your dog literally inhaling their food?

She always gobbled her food down as fast as possible, probably because she had experienced real hunger […]

My first experience of fostering dogs

I have been thinking for a while about fostering, and I knew I would like to help; I love dogs and have a dog-friendly house and garden… also Luna loves most other dogs and would definitely benefit from it. My expectation was to begin my fostering journey sensibly, pacing myself and NOT falling in love, […]

My Luna story

Every idea starts with a story, mine started with my love for my dog, Luna. I met Luna in February 2021, like the best love stories, I wasn’t looking for her or expecting it, I saw this scraggly, scared little thing and fell in love with her. People say dogs look their owners, Luna looked […]

The sea and dogs

Do you and your dog love to walk by the sea? There is something I love about the sea and the beach. Every week I go sea swimming with my best friends. I often don’t want to get in, and then I don’t want to get out. It is cold – sometimes, my legs and […]

The secret to dog training
