With this recent spell of hot weather we’ve been walking Poppy, our beagle, early in the morning and late at night. But even then, she’s finding it a struggle. We’ve cut the time down quite a bit to help her out and we’re taking water with us everywhere.
It’s Love Your Pet day today (Monday 20th February 2023), giving you a good excuse to spoil your dog rotten. Of course, giving them lots of treats isn’t always a good idea. So, here’s a five other ways you can show your pooch some love…
As it’s autumn and the leaves are turning to shades of yellow, brown and red, it’s the perfect time to get out and enjoy the scenery. And the Lake District is one of the best places to do it. As we live here, we might be a bit biased, but it also means we are best-placed to share our favourite new dog walks in this glorious landscape. This walk is perfect for a Halloween outing as it follows an old corpse road, but thanks to the scenery, it’s great any time. And as it takes in a mix of countryside, it’s great for dogs.
You’re out walking with your dog off the lead, when another dog comes into sight. Your pooch makes an instant bee-line for the other hound and you shout over ‘don’t worry, they’re friendly’. Sound familiar? What you may not know, is your friendly dog, could be a problem.
If you’ve ever needed a helping hand with the dog walking or needed a sitter for your pooch, then you may have heard of Petpals. They’ve been caring for many of the UK’s pets for two decades now. And to celebrate their 20th birthday, they’ve come up with a fresh new look.
