Good brands that offer the best food for your pet

Pet health is becoming an increasingly important aspect of animal welfare. In recent years there has been an influx in the amount of medications and supplements being made available for our animals in order to help keep them in tip top shape. It is only natural for pets to catch illnesses or suffer from some sort of condition, particularly in old age. Treatments for animal illnesses can cost you a hefty sum, which, in today’s economic climate is the last thing you want.

Feeding your pedigree dog

Pedigree dogs were bred for selected purposes such as hunting, guarding and herding animals. Therefore specific traits were bred into each breed to suit the purpose they were required for. However it wasn’t until the late 1950’s when pedigree dogs became popular to show. The first official dog show was in 1959 and the UK Kennel Club now recognizes over 200 breeds, and over 400 breeds are recognized worldwide.

Freedom of Choice – Which Food for Your Dog

Choosing a premium dog food over a cheaper brand is already a step in the right direction for your dog’s health and happiness. Most high end dog foods use top quality ingredients and provide vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and other beneficial food stuffs in order to keep allergy, muscle, joint and digestive problems at bay. But choosing the right premium dog food from the broad selection available is very important and will depend on the age, breed and physiological condition (i.e. level of exercise and other factors such as breeding) of your pet.

Choose a pet stroller

When you’re contemplating buying a pet stroller there are quite a few points to think about. Picking out the pet stroller that is good for your needs, and your pet is key to really using and enjoying your pet stroller. Let’s have a look at some of the things to look at when making this purchase.


How large is your pooch. This is a crucial measurement. If your dog is too large for the stroller you choose he won’t fit, or will not have that much room to be comfortable. If your pet isn’t comfortable in the stroller he’s not going to want to travel in it. It won’t be a relaxing thing for him to do, and it can lead to safety issues. If your pet isn’t confident in his stroller he may try to jump out. If he jumps out while you’re going for walks it could be hazardous for him.

Be sure that the stroller you select is not just big enough to fit your dog, but sufficient for him to have a little bit of space to move around and lie down in.

Conversely if you get a stroller that is too big for your pooch it can be just as disagreeable for them. Thumping around in a big space can be intimidating for a little dog. It can allow them to get banged and jostled as you are on your way, and that can be risky.

So make certain you get the specifications of the stroller you’re choosing and ensure your pet will fit easily in the measurement. Something you need to take note of when gathering the measurements it to be sure that you get the internal measurements. You want to get the measurements for the area your dog will be relaxing in, not the overall measurements for the whole stroller.

Your Purpose:

What is it you would like to do with your canine in your stroller? Are you going to just walk around the block on a inviting evening? Is your family very lively, do you want to take your furry friend with you when you go exercising or even when you go out on a family bike ride? Do you want to take your dog stroller camping out with you? These are questions you need to ask because the answers will make a sizable difference in the type of stroller you should get.

If you’re just going out for a peaceful jaunt one of the classic four wheeled pink pet strollers might be excellent for you. If you’re going to be jogging, or going off road a three wheeled jogging stroller might be a better fit. If you’re going to be going on bike rides you’ll definitely need a pet bik trailer. If you choose one of the pet bike trailers you might want to check and see if the stroller you choose comes with a conversion kit to turn it into a jogging stroller, or if you’ll have to purchase one separately. There are bike pet trailers that include the conversion kit, so if that’s important to you, make sure you find one where it is included.

I trust these guidelines will help you consider a pet stroller that will work delightfully for you and your pet. Letting your pet to get outdoors and be part of family activities is a wonderful way to say you love them.

Dog Collars »

Collar types

Collars come in a wide variety of styles, colors, and materials. The two common types of collars are training collars and buckle collars.

Training collars

The purpose of a training collar is for you to be able to guide your dog or to check your dog if necessary. (A check is a tug on the leash followed by an immediate release of tension on the leash.) A check is used when you want your dog to stop doing something. However, the check is a form of negative reinforcement and an unpleasant experience for any dog.

Buckle collars

Collars for the trained dog are called buckle collars. They are either leather, nylon, or canvas. For the untrained dog, buckle collars are virtually useless. Trying to control a dog with a buckle collar would be difficult. Some dog owners prefer to use a harness, which is perfectly fine for dogs that do not pull or for small dogs, where pulling is not terribly objectionable. But for a medium-sized or large dog that pulls, harnesses are not a good idea because you give up the control that you are trying to achieve. The dog literally leans into the harness and drags you wherever he wants to go. The only exception for using a harness on an untrained dog is if the dog has a neck injury.

Your dog can benefit from sporting a  Secure Dog Coat as it can provide them with extra warmth and your dog will also have with extra protection from the rain and when you take then for walks through the bush from the scraps and grazes from outlying bushes. If your Dog is an active outdoor dog then buying a protective Dog Coat for them is one of the best decisions you can make.

One thing that you need to remember though is that not all Dog Coats are created equal. Coats differ greatly in terms of quality both in regards to the material they are made from and also in terms of the way they fit your dog.

First of all you need to ensure that the coat that you purchase is the right size. If the coat is too small your Dog will likely find it uncomfortable and if it’s too tight then the coat may not fit at all. As dogs have a tendency to get themselves into a wide range of situations you also don’t want a coat that has any loose ends as your dog could get tangled up. To get the perfect measurements for the coat, measure the distance from the base of the dogs neck to the base of the tail. If in doubt always go a size up and ensure that you leave a little bit of room if you expect your dog to grow.

Another point of consideration is too ensure that the Dog Coat is water resistant. A waterproof Dog Coat will keep your dogs fur dry on wet days and also from wet and dew covered bushes and grass.

You should also look for your Dog Coat to have practical features such as openings for harness leashes, quick adjustment closures, and enough room for your pooch to relieve himself without making a mess.

My recommendation for the perfect coat is the Ultimate 2-in-1 Four Seasons Performance Dog Coat. In the colder months the coat has a removable polar fleece lining for extra winter warmth and the warmers months the coat has a waterproof/breathable outer coat.

The Ultimate 2-in-1 Performance Dog Coat is a unique design, featuring an innovative concept, which produces total adaptability to the weather. For colder months, the polar fleece lining provides the comfort and warmth to protect against the cold. As the weather improves, the fleece lining can be removed, leaving a lightweight, waterproof and breathable jacket to combat the vagaries of the British weather.

The Four Seasons 2-in-1 also features full chest protection, light reflective beading and light reflective central fastening straps for extra safety at night, as well as easy Velcro fastening.
So if you are looking for a dog coat for your dog make sure that you measure your dog before you shop and get a well-fitting dog coat that’ll keep your dog safe and warm!
