My dog is now totally deaf, she wasn't born deaf, she was fine, then it was partial deafness and now in the last few months its total and utter deafness. I often spend my time wondering what it is like for her as with the total loss of hearing has... Continue reading

Throughout life we are taught to not judge a book by its cover. When you are looking for a rescue dog, its what you end up having to do! You are having to make a decision based on its kennel behaviour, its interactions from behind bars or on a lead... Continue reading

Every puppy owner wants to do the right thing with their socialisation. In my first week of puppy classes I do a 10 min talk on the rules of my class and what I will and won't accept. Two of which are on lead greetings and free play with the... Continue reading

One of my clients Emily just emailed me this. I don't personally agree with no. 1 as dogs get used to it if they are taught but I really like the idea of putting things from the dog point of view. All too often we are thinking of our lives,... Continue reading

Recently I've met up with a number of new owners who have taken on dogs via sites like Gumtree. If you are thinking of buying a dog through such a site, switch off the computer and walk away. Gumtree and similar is a site designed to flog things that people... Continue reading

I write this blog with a heavy heart as sometimes you have days when you meet a dog that just gets to you. Today was one of them. On my walk around the kennels I met a new inmate, he was sat shaking and yowling is the only word I... Continue reading

Every now and then I notice an increase in a particular type of dog coming to puppy classes. Since the end of last year it has been all about the Cocker Spaniel. I couldn't figure out why and then after discussing it with a client who owns a lovely working... Continue reading

Last week this poor soul of a Bull Mastiff cross was dumped overnight in London Fields. It was the evening where temp dropped to -4. The dog was found under a bench, in his own vomit, covered in sores, malnourished from starvation, the saddest sight to behold. The park rangers... Continue reading

Last week saw Pupaid taking the message to the Houses of Parliament and to the masses on Primrose Hill. It was a great week for getting the word out that puppy farming is wrong, inhumane and has huge implications on our society. I joined Marc the Vet, Debbie Connolly, the... Continue reading

Dogs have lots of ways of communicating but the growl is the one that will get a human reaction. I've been to see clients who have chastised their dog for growling, have hit the dog, have rewarded the dog or have just panicked. Either way, the dog has learnt something... Continue reading
