Five Lake District attractions you can visit with your dog

We’re lucky enough to live in Cumbria’s Lake District. It’s a great place to have adventures with your dog. In fact, part of the reason we moved here was so we could get a dog! It’s a great place for interesting walkies, with plenty of open spaces to explore. However, it’s not just the fells and lakes that you can visit with your pooch. There are plenty of fun attractions and heritage spots you can visit too. Here’s five we’ve already checked out with Poppy the beagle:

Treat your dog to Scoop’s ice cream

So, you may have noticed that summer has finally arrived. And many of us are enjoying our staycations with days at the beach or walks in the countryside, followed by a well-deserved ice cream. But what about our most important family member? Yes, that’s right, we mean your dog (who no doubt pulls their very best puppy face as you enjoy your treat).

Find Dog Furiendly places to go with new app

Now, I don’t know about you, but we don’t go out too often without our stinky dog Poppy in tow. I mean, she’s an absolute pest when there’s food about. But we still take her to pubs and cafes with us. And when her diet allows, she does get a few scraps (shhh, don’t tell the vet). We hate to leave her alone at home. And according to research carried out for Channel 4’s Dogs: Their Secret Lives – Sad Dogs, 85% of dogs suffer from separation related anxiety, feeling frightened, lonely or sad, whenever their owners head out to work or pop out of the house.

Tick season is upon us!

Yesterday, Poppy got her first tick of the year. And so, I thought it was probably worth writing a post about dogs and ticks. Many of you who haven’t had your dogs or puppies for long, will probably be thinking that this doesn’t really affect you. But, ticks are something that I think all dog owners should be aware of. Ticks just love our pooches!

Review: Pet hair and lint remover

I don’t know whether your Instagram feed has been full of adverts for lint rollers, but mine certainly has! One type of lint remover seems to pop up time and again. And that’s for a metal device that claims to be able to remove lots of pet hair from your carpet. So, this week I decided to order one and give it a go.
