Dog Games Shop
I often recommend my clients to use a harness rather than a collar when walking their dogs. Dog Games, operated by Sally Hopkins, manufacture the fleece-lined harnesses I use for my own dogs. Sally also provides a great range of toys which stimulate and entertain dogs in a sensible way without getting them overexcited, something else I often advise.

Cavalier Matters
Our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Jaffa, suffered with a few of the genetic disorders typical of the breed. We managed to make her life a LOT more comfortable by offering her a calm, quiet environment to live in. The Cavalier Matters website is a supporter of this approach, and so we are a supporter of them!

Cat vs. Internet
Dogs (like cats) will use behaviour as a way to attract your attention. They will see any kind of reaction, positive OR negative as their reward for the behaviour. This cartoon shows how!
Animal Emotions
Researchers are beginning to study the emotional reactions of animals to different events. Here, the scientist and author John Balcombe shows some emotional responses from a range of animals.
