Christmas-Dog-Safety.jpg

It’s just two more sleeps until the Big FC pays his annual visit, we gorge ourselves on food and drink, and spend most of our waking hours in a sloth like state. For dogs, it means plentiful tit-bits, a steady stream of visitors offering extra attention, extra time with your pet parent, a warm fire, if you’re a lucky pup, a gift or two. However, with temptations such as tinsel, tiny toys and turkey bones, Christmas can also be a hazardous time for hounds.

To minimise any doggy dramas, we’ve shared ten ways to keep your dog safe and sound this Christmas and New Year …

If truth be told, we’re not big on dog grooming. It’s not that we’re too posh to wash it’s just that our resident hound Basil Barkarama is a low maintenance kind of guy. However, when we caught whiff of a dog shampoo, which has received the royal paws up, Basil soon found himself in hot water  …

Cram in all the crisp, sunny dog walks you can because according to the forecasts, come next week the weather is said to be taking a turn for the worse, with temperatures plunging to freezing and even the threat of snow in some parts of the country.

Tried & Tested: Behavioural Therapy & Dog Training for Toileting Issues Part 1

Basil-training-feature.jpg

Dear canine community, we have a confession to make. Being a good (and most importantly firm) pet parent is not a skill that came naturally to us and until just a few months ago, our own little ten-month-old treasure/terror was not a shining example of a well-trained dog. Sure we grew up with dogs, carrying out daily duties such as feeding and walking but nothing quite prepares you for your own dog, one that you are wholly responsible for 24:7 and who’s behaviour is a product of your creation.

At Barkarama HQ, we’re partial to pet products with novelty factor, which is why these puppy bumpers first grabbed our attention.

Is your dog protected against them? If you answer no to one or all of the above then keep reading …
