Hints and Tips

HALTI
I have been approached by several customers who struggle to stop their dog pulling them when out on a walk. The first thing you must do is controll the head, once done you controll the body. The best halti I have come accross, and use daily, is a make called Dog Matic. They make various sizes to suit your breed. Dont expect it to work straight away. You will need to introduce it gradually over a few weeks untill your dog accepts the halti. You will not believe the difference once you have mastered the dog matic. It will be an absolute pleasure to walk your dog. Please get in touch for any advice. Shane

PROTEIN

Several customers have asked about protein and how it may put on weight. I can assure you that protein has absolutely nothing to do with weight gain. Protein builds the very fabric of the body on a daily basis and only becomes an issue if your best friend has problems with his or her kidneys. If you suspect a problem you must consult a vet for advice.

BEHAVIOUR

Having problems with your dogs behaviour?
Have you considered CLICKER training !! Shaping the right behaviour ignoring the bad behaviour. It really works BUT! you must put the work in. I can assure you the results will be amazing!!

FUSSY DOGS

Simpsons Premium dog food is designed to be very palatable, even to those fussy dogs. I accept that there are some dogs who struggle with a change of food. If you are giving your dog tit bits during the day, cut them out for the time being. Try pre soaking the food to release the flavour. Only leave the food down for 20 minutes. Have an area where your dog can be left alone to digest his food in peace. No one wants your dog to go hungry. You must be patient and not give in at the first hurdle. Dogs love routine, so it may be all about changing yours.
If you need any help/advice just get in touch. I can give you good examples of where patience, together with a change of routine, has paid off.
