  1. Book Review: Give Your Dog a Bone by Dr Ian Billinghurst

    Give Your Dog a Bone by Dr Ian Billinghurst BV.Sc.[Hons], B.Sc.Agr., Dip.Ed.

    I’ve now got quite a collection of books that are about or cover in detail canine nutrition. With out a doubt this one outshines them all.

    First up, I’d like to catch the attention of those who under penance of death will never feed their dog bones, or those who would never consider giving their dog un-cooked meats. Please don’t be turned off this book because it is about feeding a raw diet

    We had puppy school again today. This was Beau's third day. He is now ready to move up to the Beginners Class but that starts on the first Sunday of each month, so is still a few weeks away before we start. I don't mind though.

  5. 30th April 2007 - No man to protect us


    We have only had small dogs for a couple of months and up to date any walks I have done with the little ones has been with my husband. I’ve always felt confident walking my Boxers alone, as no other dogs seem to bother them. It has been in the back of my mind though, how I would go when confronted by off-leash dogs when I am walking the Cavaliers. Well today I decided Sonny (our adopted 2 year old Cavalier) and I should venture out on our own and build up our confidence about walking ...
